    @Rich H its memorial day and I ran out of beer.

    current favorite is dogfish head 120...

    I thought memorial day was for "Remember to bring beer" ????

    @Tim P That so many retail locations ignore what Memorial Day is really for and promote stupid things like gift cards.

    Probably the same ones that forget what all the others are about

    Here in Canada the ones that don't close for the morning of Remembrance Day bug me the most.
    The only reason they have that choice is because of all the vets, not just those of our own country, who we're supposed to be remembering that day.

    Yes I had a step grandfather who was a vet in the Canadian Navy
    Awesome man

    Tabouli or not tabouli — that is the question…

    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
    and by opposing, end them?

    That way leads to madness. Follow me, I know a shortcut!

    I've got to admit, it's hard for me to sing the "now I know my ABCs" song to my kids without singing the letter as Zee - the song doesn't work otherwise!

  15. Zee!

    Here's something for the pet peeve list that makes many technology wonks hard to listen to:

    People asked a straightforward questions (especially in interviews) insist on starting their answers with "So".

    For example:

    Person 1: Where where are you from?
    Person 2: So I was born in Canada but grew up in Silicon Valley.

    Is "so" the new "like"?

  21. @Curt,
    What is a "technology wonks"???
