Sometimes people ask "how much weight have you lost?" Invariably I think "none, I didn't 'lose' it. I'm not looking for it." I mean, if a tarantula crawled on my face and I got it off of me, did I "lose" it? Nay, quothe I. I don't say t... Read more

So I went to lunch at El Cerro Grande with my wife. We've been there before but hadn't been in over a year. We walk in and I think "Crap, I remember these booths." I always have to eye them and pick the "wide side" of the booth and then try to... Read more
