The only thing I don't like about tacos is they're messy. I'd rather have a burrito.

I love a good hot and sour soup. That actually is a good indicator of whether I will like a place's other offerings if they have a good hot and sour soup.

Yeah, they usually try to cash in on the popularity and success of the original without putting together a top-notch team.

There's a new Magnum? Wow. I don't think I like that idea. I loved the original show, but I'm such a purest and traditionalist, I don't like it when they re-make things.

here people can take their old landline number, say their parents, and put in on a cell phone just to keep it in case long lost persons call.

It never occurred to me that I could turn my landline number into a cell phone. If I could do that at my current land line rate of $20 a month for unlimited calling, and no cost for the actual cell phone itself, it would be worth a thought, but I really like my home's telephone handset, and have never liked the feel or sound of cell phones.

I don't normally get a lot of spam calls. Some days go by and the phone doesn't ring at all. In any event, my cell is strictly an emergency item. I use my land line for regular day to day phone conversations. I'm a nostalgic old curmudgeon, anyway; I like keeping the land line since it's been the same number at the same house for over 50 years.

They're from all sorts of different people, from charities to who knows what - half the time, I say hello 3 times and nobody is there.

I actually have a call on my answering machine from this afternoon that says "Windows Security has been breached" and Microsoft will be shutting down my computer if I don't call them back.

Oh, I do enjoy spicy, but there are some things that are too f'in hot. I think it depends a lot on what the food is that the spice is on and the temperature the dish is served. Watery, oily, absorbing, etc. It may also depend on the kind of pepper.

Well, I like spicy, too, but I also like to taste the ingredients. I was breaking a little sweat on level number 1, and that was just enough kick for me.

I don't feel like cooking tonight. I think I'll get something from this Thai restaurant:

Looks more Asian combo than straight Thai. Still looks like lots of good things. Just too bad it looks like they have gone American with some of the ingredients like the mushrooms.

What spice level do you usually get? I'd never been to this place, so I'm glad I chose "1". ;~)

I can't sleep if it's hot. I keep it so cool in the house, I use a blanket in the summer.

I like it cold in the summer and toasty in the winter.

I just watched 2010(sequel to 2001). The 80's cold war stuff sort of gets in the way of the story. I think they should have left that out.
