You simply don't measure up - R.H. Joseph

The only organization that doesn't email me unsolicited offers to increase the size of various parts of my anatomy is Ben & Jerry's. Honorable men, they provide such enhancement for free.

Question: Do you think things are going well in Iraq?

Sick day soup for the soul - Rob Felt

Sand swirled against the windshield and I pushed the accelerator harder into the car's floorboard. My navigator barked a flurry of commands at me from the passengers seat over the engine's high rpm whine: "?medium right, up hill to slow left?"

Writing columns is easy - a few paragraphs about Radiohead - Zach Porter

I'm sitting here reading the bold black letters over and over again: "Your home is at risk if you do not keep up with everyone else." The line is such an amusing non-sequitur and it tickles me more with every read. Is it a note from the bank, the creditors, a nasty surprise in the mailbox? No, don't be alarmed, it's just my brand new official Radiohead anorak (or rain slicker if you like), that I purchased at their concert at HiFi Buys Ampitheatre one week ago. This bright yellow anorak (or windbreaker if you prefer), is the memento I have left to cherish my favorite musical group in the whole wide world and their incredible concert event that is already fading into hazy shades of gray.
