Re: Happy birthday melsbells!

Happy Birthday! I am low on inspiration today -- I'm sorry. I offer an opportunity to waste 45 seconds of your life you're not getting back . Faster strokes for larger font. I think it's purdy.

Re: have you had lobster?

First I was picky, and I didn't want lobster. Then I learned to love shrimp, realized I still hate crab, and I never went back. I've never had lobster. Is it like gigantic crawfish? I think lobster is closer to shrimp than crab in consistency, and different from both in flavor. I don't know that I'...

Re: what are you favorite museums?

I love the Museum of Natural History and the National Air and Space Museum in DC, and the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, KS is better than any museum in the middle of nowhere has any business being. And I (unexpectedly) really really enjoyed my visit to the...

"I wouldn't have known any better" is really interesting. I was trying to be a smartass, but if I get into the nitty-gritty of it, I haven't read Paradise Lost, but it sounds like it takes a more literal interpretation of the passage, which really makes my eyes roll and my head hurt. I wa...
