Long Distance Love: One Halloween, Two Points of View: Debating the Pr...: "He said: For anyone who has visited my other blog, you won't be surprised that I'm taking the CON position. If I don't hate it, it's not worth liking."
Extra sharp cheddar. Butter. Mmmmmm. But I'd still use wheat bread. Nom nom nom.

From My Jello Americans comes a yummy-sounding drink that begs to be tested and tasted by Iced Tea & Sarcasm readers (and writer). Now, where can I find a 17-year-old who has a bottle of peach schnapps stashed away in her closet?

I know it's not really that close to the bridge, but this is absurd. Why do they take such risks (Blue Angels and now United) in a densely populated area like San Francisco? It's blog-worthy, but it's not right.

But, here's the deal: The average American uses 159 gallons of water every day – more than 15 times the average person in the developing world. From showering and washing our hands to watering our lawns and washing our cars, Americans use a lot of water. To put things into perspective, the average five-minute shower will use about 10 gallons of water. Basically, we use the amount of water during one (short) shower that people in developing countries use to bathe, wash their clothes, cook their meals, and quench their thirst.
My god! If I had known how much water you all were wasting, I would have gone postal by now. Think of the tea! The little leaves yearning to add some color to that otherwise colorless, flavorless (let's admit it: boring) but oh-so-precious water. For me, this was an "H2-Oh-no-you-didn't" moment.
I'm asking all of you to take five easy steps to help protect this most valuable of natural resources:
- Say "No, thank you" to water at your table when you eat out if you don't really want or need it. Besides, why would you fill up on water when there's so much wine to be tasted?
- Turn off the water when you're brushing your teeth. Or just stop brushing your teeth. Gum works just fine.
- Quit watering your hideous lawns. You're not the King of France for Christ's sake and this isn't Versaille. Get some local plants and do some environmental landscaping.
- Stop washing dishes. Just buy those paper or plastic plates and throw them away when you're done.
- Babies are small. Give them less water.
Thanks for reading and Happy Blog Action Day!

Everywhere. But mostly where the dinosaur bites you.
I have to say, though, that the dino doesn't look all that lonely and depressed. He seems to be smiling if you ask me. I think his loneliness is a symptom of manic depression. Poor thing.

Now, they'd have to pay me to take one, but you might need another one to complete the set. Ask for a discount, though. The winter models aren't in style any more.

And thanks for all the leading questions, Matt. Let this man hang himself with his own words. Stop leading him to whatever media salvation you think he deserves.

FULLERTON, Calif. — A Fullerton man is under arrest on suspicion of attempting to rob a 7-Eleven with a fake handgun Tuesday afternoon.
The gunman, witnesses said, had also suggested they call 911.
Fullerton Police Sgt. Andrew Goodrich said at the scene that Ivine Love, 18, of Fullerton is expected to face a robbery charge, but no weapons charges, considering the gun was a fake.
A clerk at the 7-Eleven at the corner of Brea Boulevard and Rolling Hills Drive, Sama Lakhani, said that the man did not seem intimidating, except for the gun he held.
"I was at the sandwich/ Slurpee area making sure everything was in the right place," she said. "The guy came in and said 'Give me the money, or otherwise call the police.'"
The other clerk behind the counter had already used the button for the silent robbery alarm, but complied with the man in calling 911. Lakhani said the other clerk told the man to relax and have something to drink.
The gunman took an Arizona Iced Tea out of the cooler and drank it while waiting for police to arrive, she said.
Police got the call around 1 p.m. The clerks were still on the phone with 911 when police told them to leave through the back. No one was injured, and Love was arrested.
If you listen closely, you can hear "Geronimooooooooooooo!"
