  1. Ohh damn it's that time of year isn't it! Happy Birthday!
  2. It's rare that someone creates a condiment that can rival the original. You owe us freaks some respect for that at least. Nobody pretends Velveeta is real cheese, but Miracle Whip is mayo to lots of people. Including me.
  3. I've only dealt with DHL once. My laptop broke and Apple overnighted a box to me via DHL. They seemed pretty cool; they waited while I put it into the box and taped it up. This was the first time I had ever heard of DHL, a couple years ago. They have a delivery outpost or something at the office complex of one of my clients. Otherwise I have mostly used the other two carriers.
  4. Welcome to the forum! I used to have a subscription to Metal Maniacs, but never really looked at the competition.
  5. My awesome neighbor makes many, many bottles of it once a year or so. She gave me one which wound up at T73's place. (You knew you should have made it out there for that whole fishing thing.) Next year I'm going to try and swindle her out of more than one bottle. She certainly made it sound easy to make. Steep a bunch of mashed lemons in Everclear for a month, drain off the liquid, add sugar. I have no idea if that's all she did or not.
  6. How nice of him to include a free spoon with the TP. I rather wanted to send him that message myself though, rather than having him send it to his customers. I'd probably have offered him a regular spoon though. And some netting.
  7. Yeah, it was awesome. I find it sort of hilarious that the two high-end Italian bars we went to didn't have it, but the Monte Vista Fire Station restaurant/sports bar did. I had had a strange dream about it a couple nights ago, and it tasted about as I had dreamt it (well, a bit sharper), but I couldn't quite identify it otherwise. It's like a sweet rather than salty Herbsaint, but much more pleasant. The only thing I could really think of to compare it to with my extremely limited drinking vocabulary was Jägermeister, and it was a couple thousand times better than that stuff (which I kind of like, in a medicine-y kind of way).
  8. I'm with you both. They're one of my favorite new bands. I should really lend that album to Nathan.
  9. M.E. 262 was it actually. Several items off their other early albums though.
  10. JB Weld is amazing stuff. Some friends of mine in college made all manner of sculptures from their Diet Coke cans using it. You'd try and destroy them, and the only weaknesses in the structure were places where they weren't welded together. Come to think of it, I really should own some of that stuff.
  11. Have you seen the hReview microformat? It'd be cool, though probably geeky and useless, if our site supported that. I didn't check; maybe it already is.
  12. Apparently so. And to finish Michael's program, which I did, and to write a saucy little rant which is currently #7 on programming.reddit.com. And to get 3 hours of sleep. So yeah, feel slighted. Hiram: that coffee device is so awesome it makes me wish I liked coffee.
