"We're traveling at half the speed of smell" -Ron White

Tonight my thoughts are these:
* "Dude, I'm freezing! Oh...perhaps I should put on pants?"
* "I waaaaannnnnt a Snickers bar! BLAST YOU DAILY CALORIC ALLOTMENT!"
* "When, oh when will Friday nights once again mean anything more than 'Oh great, gotta wake up early for school then its straight to work for me!' Grrr."
* "I enjoy listening to Larry The Cable Guy when he is doing interviews, speaking in his normal voice. And that frightens me."

Yeah, I was thinking about that...
I've seen a facsimile of Michelangelo's David. Was that at The Louvre? Or The British Museum? ...somewhere.

By the way, Mer... did we do #76? Watched the changing of the guard in London when we were chillin' at Buckingham Palace?
