    When the moon hits your eye like a big-a pizza pie that's amore. When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine that's amore.

    I mean, I think I know what the secret is, but I've never dated a Victoria.
    My guess is that she's been surgically enhanced.

    Cleverly placed padding and anorexia/bulemia. Guess that's two secrets.

    My current favorite candy bar is Milky Way with dark chocolate.

    Do not list your favorite candy bar, because then someone will split off a new thread.

    You know that Maister would and create a poll too ? Didn't we have this thread before ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I enjoyed reading through the Ask Dan about ithica thread, which made me wonder, what other cyburbian ambassadors are out there. Do yall share the love for MI?

    Which is generally more silly: doo-wop or disco?

    I'd be willing to host a 'ask me about Michigan' thread, but I suspect y'all have probably had enough of FAC threads started by yours truly (to last two lifetimes). Sounds like it would be a great idea for someone like detroit planner, veloise, mendelman, sw mi planner, btrage, wsu mup, or mskis to start one up

    There are a lot of good movies out right now. Should get myself to the theater.

    I grew up in the South and still hear "thee-a-ter" in my head when I type theater.

    The other night Hubby and I were discussing the number of movies we'd like to see in the near future. After the discussion some of them got bumped to Netflix.

    If my wife never ever called me at work again, that would be OK with me.

    Now I'm all screwed up inside and can't focus! Why!?!?! Why, Woman!?!?!

    A lot of herbal teas taste to me but a caffeine-free black or green tea can be nice in the evening. Same thing for decaf coffee.

    One I've never understood though is caffeine-free Diet Coke.
