melyngoch - I thought you were going to get us killed only once. There were a half dozen other times I thought that we were going to sustain serious bodily harm.

becca - Yes, indeed (thus cementing our theory about the correlation between male attractiveness and a good Swedish Chef impersonation).

ambrosia - Good point. We'll have to go back to Nashville immediately.

Scottro - :)

We (ashamedly) still have some of the half a jar left. I ate some with a banana today. I need some more rolls.

What I want to know is what it'll take to get you to drive 1900 miles one way to do our library.
