    Help! What am I eating right now?

    The lady had a thick Vietnamese accent. I was craving fish and rice. That thing up on the upper right she said was "fishtofu." What is in the middle of the tofu? It doesn't taste bad(good actually) but it sure doesn't taste like "fish" either

    I'm haunted by these creatures. They're relatively new visitors..they started showing up in my bathroom; many of them as long as 4 inches. Now though, I'm finding them in other areas; but dead and up-side-down. Possibly my cat pouncing on them? They're too damn big for Roach Motels. I've...

    The Flaming Lips- The Fearless Freaks Dvd 5/17

    The Fearless Freaks I can hardly contain my excitement for this 2disc set coming up here in 8 days. From the Amazon synopsis and reviews from other sources I've read, it appears this is going to be a pretty thorough account of this psychedelic/punk band's lengthy career. Any other "Flip"...

    My first massage ever and I feel crappy

    [I mean I've had the low-budge g/f & b/f type massages but this was my first by a liscensed masseur.] It was the first of a series of kneck and back deep-tissue massages. I feel very nauseous, congested, sore and light-headed. Is this normal? The girl, who's my masseur, said that I may...

    Disorder in the Court

    A few funny excerpts from Charles M. Sevilla's often hilarious Disorder series. Things actually said in court (somewhat salty link) Hopefully, this will induce someone to post that wonderful, "Hello, and welcome to last week" pic. I love that one but lost it.

    I went to one "boss" backyard party Saturday night

    At least for this region, these are legend of the late 70's and early 80's. A band, a keg, cherry incense, black lights, smell of herb in the air and the phrase "the cops are here." I stepped into a time warp on Saturday night. I did receive a formal invite via cellular but entered from...

    *** Official MEAN CREEK Review Thread
