@jolie Four Roses is better than it used to be, and still a good deal. And even though it doesn't really qualify as cheap at ~$30, High West Double Rye is one of my new favorite things.
The Ghost Map is a great book. Also, check out anything by Bill Bryson for humorous travel writing.
@Gef the Talking Mongoose Baker's is some good stuff indeed.
I used to dream that I was standing on an empty, grassy plain, directly in the path of a huge tornado.
@Better to Eat You With A Guinness float may change your mind (if you like beer, that is).
@birah r. I did mine the weekend after I got my W2. Refunds were deposited mid-February. I don't want the government keeping my money a day longer than they have to.
I don't have any unread emails in any of my inboxes. Not being important has its benefits.
My dad makes the best cornbread ever in the cast iron skillet he inherited from Grandma.
You know what's useless, though? My cast iron skillet with grill ridges. Getting the ridges hot enough to mark the meat makes the bottom practically molten, so the fat/juices smoke like crazy.
My escape planning has already begun. Glad it's working out for you.
Also, I want to drag a canoe down to the water and paddle all over that lake. Beautiful.
Someone needs to carve an addendum to the Rosetta Stone to cover this.
