    I'm writing an abstract for a poster submission and struggling with how honest I should be about the challenges encountered during this project. Ugh. Not what I want to be doing on Easter.

    Boy, RJ is one to miss details. He probably didn't notice in the forground there's an interesting Cosmopolitan article "Are you using the right lip gloss?"
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Don't think so. The names and address (obviously redacted) don't seem to "match" U19's identity.

    On TLC:"Mama's Boys from the Bronx". These guys can't be real. Not only can I not imagine any woman on earth dating them, I can't imagine any mother on earth not strangling them.

    Oh hey there Cyburbia. So as it turns out, moving is really stressful. I have moved 4 times now in about 2 years, and this last one is really taking a toll on me. But hey, planners gotta do what a planners gotta do...

    Hopefully it will be worth it.... packing up stuff sucks in general... moving just makes it worse.

    I don't know why it is, but every time I log on to Cyburbia today I get an inexplicable craving for unleavened bread. Wierd, huh?

    Why is this Web site different from all other Web sites?

    FWIW, KFP matzo tastes even more like cardboard than the regular unleavened. If you're a survivalist, though, it keeps forever, and you can get five-pack boxes of the stuff cheap towards the end of the holiday. Grab some KFP Coke while you get the chance, though; look for two-liter bottles with yellow caps with Hebrew letters, or if you're in a city with a large Jewish population, cans from the Chicago bottling plant marked with the Hebrew letters on the top.

    Ouch - I once moved five times in six years (and all within the same metro area...once within the same apartment building)...can't imagine doing four in two years. Do you actually unpack everything?

    This is why my last move was to an apartment right next to my old one. Still seemed like a pain though.

    After hearing all the fuss about KFP Coke, I was going to finally buy some this season but it seems that neither of the two stores right near me that normally carry it are going to do so this year. A friend of mine told me though that that KFP Coke comes off the same line as the "Mexican Coke" that is sold up here which makes some sense to me since there is no high fructose corn syrup in either and because of different preservatives it goes through a different bottling process (and doesn't seem to last on the shelf either) so I'll have to settle for that. He claims to have checked with somebody and was told that if you have Mexican Coke you can get away with not tossing it out when doing your Pesach cleaning, but it just hasn't technically been certified. I'm not Jewish though so none of that matters to me... I just wanted to know if I could taste a difference.

    Our local Kroger store did however have a nice selection of KFP Dr. Brown's cream soda and root beer in 1 liter bottles. Oddly, when calculated by the ounce, these bottles were priced much better than a six pack of the cans. As somebody who loves cream soda and root beer, I stocked up. I just wish that they also sold the ginger ale and orange soda.
