A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 10/8/09 9:11am Trapper:

I like the new Hope album. And there's a song called 'Trouble!'
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:13am steven:

The girl downtown is workin' hard and doing swell...
Mazzy's She Hangs Brightly is being reissued on yellow vinyl, only 1000 copies
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:15am trouble:

good morning modern folk
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:15am BSI:

Annie: likewise!

Although this week is completely wacky, due to FURLOUGH FRIDAY, thus, today is effectively friday, which means I missed Trouble yesterday, but Trouble's on now, and at this point the room starts to spin...
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:16am steven:

wooden ships on that gaslight killer kicks ass...

it's amazing how this early bee gees with the mellotron goes into pastoral strrawbs or incredible string band territory. if only i hadn't vowed to buy more cd's...
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:31am jg:


I have been thinking about this czukay song for a while. thanks!
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:39am still b/p:

The SONG is the greatest.
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:41am jg:

I love you birds! Don't loose them!

  Thu. 10/8/09 9:43am trs:

more birds
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:44am Trappy:

I wonder how many of those horrible new buildings we could have been spared here in JC without all the corruption... Though Mayor Schundler was just as bad if not worse, no?
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:45am Dan B:

I'm in a woodworking shop in a basement every day. I look foward to Thursdays when I turn off the saw and the dust collector and hear birds birds birds.
  Thu. 10/8/09 9:47am Chris:

Cool, this Kieran White song was on an old Ptolemaic Terrascope comp.Good to hear it widely available.

  Thu. 10/8/09 10:08am depilatrix:

just tuned in. What article on hamburger??
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:09am dc pat:

stay ...away...from ....the ...hamburger....
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:10am Cecile:

I get my hamburger from little local butchers whose floor I can eat off on the busiest day of the week.

Or grind your own.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:11am north guinea hills:

My back is still recovering from carrying books and records around all day Saturday. I couldn't even get up to go to work on Monday. Man, getting old sucks....
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:11am BSI:

Lethally unsafe or not, anything is better if doused in hellish-intense volumes of Huy Fong (tm) chili-garlic sauce.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:11am texas scott:

just cook the crap out of the burger before you eat it.
nice tunes for a rainy day,Trouble
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:12am Cecile:

I took a spill two weeks ago at my Ma's house, and the ankle to knee bruises are finally beginning to fade.

NGH is right.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:15am Cecile:

YAY, le disco! Need this today!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:15am Murray:

Daft Punk? I don't know who he is!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:15am jaypee:

Woah, Daft Punk.. this album defined my ravey summer that year.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:15am trouble:

hey miss pseu!

and the article i was talking about was on the front page of sunday's new york times. it's on their web site...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:16am BSI:

ha. I was just gonna confess, this album was a bit of a guilty pleasure, so many moons ago.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:17am north guinea hills:

Cecile, exactly. 10 years ago, i'd be minor inconvenienced by the pain for a day and nothing else. I'd heal rather quickly. These days, not so much. Which is why I don't play competitive soccer any more, I can't miss the 9-5.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:18am annie:

yeah, i'm blessed to live in an area that can feed me year round.. and cecile, sorry to hear about your leg... it's not too late to take some homeopathic arnica.. works great..
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:19am jaypee:

I remember seeing these guys at an outdoor rave in 1996. I thought they were weird but I do remember dancing my arse off.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:19am Cecile:

I know. I've already had one knee 'scoped, I dread the day when #2 happens. So no running for me, but my old bones love the pool and the stationary bike.

Damn, Annie, I had Weleda arnica oil and gave it away. I should grab some at the health food store.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:19am Cecile:

BSI - do you know about the wonder that is Grace Hot Sauce?
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:21am Bill W:

E. coli, take a chance on me!

Trouble, do you own a Queen Mother memorial tea towel?
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:22am stingy d:

ride bikes!

i just found an automated breakfast machine.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:23am dc pat:

burger = no
run = now
bike = yes
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:23am dc pat:

run = no

  Thu. 10/8/09 10:23am trouble:

no bill W i do not! sad but true...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:24am trs:

Hey, I have a food question - avocado in a curried squash/yam soup ?
Good idea or not ? I can't find a recipe reference and don't want to ruin an otherwise decent soup
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:24am gumby:

Sorry for being late to the comments. But Trouble I just wanted to say that I find it deliciously refreshing that bird sounds do not translate well into MP3. I just pointed out to my 2 teenage sons that a picture of wilderness, while nice, is in no way comparable to standing in wilderness.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:25am Cecile:

NO. No avocado.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:26am BSI:

Cecile: I know NOT of this "grace hot sauce" of which you speak! But I'm foolish enough to try anything once! I got started on the sriracha, & quickly moved up to the Huy Fong chili/garlic (with the seed hulls in the mix) -- it's nowhere near the hottest stuff on earth, but makes magic!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:26am depilatrix:

trs: Great idea. Avocado will not withstand the heat however, so you need to add it after the soup is done to individual bowls. Either as whipped or chunks.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:26am annie:

trs- side dish, garnish to dip maybe..
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:27am north guinea hills:

Grace is a wonderful basic Jamaican vinegary hot sauce that kicks most commercial hot sauces arses.... Jamaican choice sauces are also purty darn good if you're going for decent heat w/ flavor. I usually make my own sauces w/ fresh habanero & garlic + whatever else I have lying around, depending on the dish I'm making...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:27am Priscilla:

No - the avocado will mess up the texture of the soup. Mash it up & spread it on some toast.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:27am depilatrix:

I freak out every time I have to add two digits to post. I never get them right the first try either. Math-trauma anyone?
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:27am dc pat:

yeah, I don't know if I'd mix avocado with anything but salt

Hot sauces: El Yucateca, Sriracha, Tabasco
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:28am trs:

Thanks. Got it. Avocado's only good cold/room temp. Gazpacho-y
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:28am BSI:

Cecile: nevermind!
Quick google image search & I know that Grace stuff! The skinny bottle, etc... If memory serves, I've had my share of the stuff...

EGAD, hungry for some reason.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:28am Cecile:

Grace is a Jamaican hot sauce like Tabasco. But SOOOO flavorful. We got some 3 wks ago and have 1/2 of a 6 oz bottle gone.

ITA with Priscilla. Also I think it's too oily for the squash.

DCP: if you can find Grace, I think you'd lilke it.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:29am trs:

or as garnish -- thanks dep. thanks all
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:30am dc pat:

  Thu. 10/8/09 10:30am dc pat:

I think they're Peel stuff is better than the official album
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:31am dc pat:

can't type/spell today. "their"

  Thu. 10/8/09 10:32am Cecile:

I actually liked that Slits song. I usually respect them, but turn them down.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:33am annie:

  Thu. 10/8/09 10:34am dc pat:

I think the studio album was cleaned up too much. Peel sessions are more punk rock.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:35am annie:

  Thu. 10/8/09 10:36am Carmichael:

Good morning, Trouble and modern listeners.

Cholula sauce is wonderful. So is any chili garlic sauce.

Scott is right. Cook the dickens out of your meat and you're OK.
No avocado.
Odessa is the best box set I've ever purchased.
I had both knees repaired at different times, one arthro'ed and one laid open. I still run 10k races, but it's because I'm an eejit.
It's Johnny Ramone's birthday.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:36am Cecile:

I ordered mine from Amigo Foods in Miami. Ok prices and great service. I also got my favorite mango chutney, Matouk's there. (had to round out a minimum order)
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:37am GP:

Good morning Trouble and everyone.
Thanks Annie for the hot-sauce tip..always on the lookout for more fire.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:38am Carmichael:

Yes, Grace is on my list now. And Matouk's is the ONLY mango chutney! Just had it on Saturday, slathered all over my homemade somozas.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:40am Cecile:

I keep forgetting how much I like it. I should have ordered like 5 bottles.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:41am doug from DC:

Good for you, Carmichael. I had hernia surgery last year and still run 5K two or three times a week. I'm an ijit too.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:42am dc pat:

I had to give up running cuz of knees...but now I'm going to start road bike races. in training this winter...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:42am Gj Pj:

  Thu. 10/8/09 10:43am annie:

and... today is national pierogi day!!!!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:44am doug from DC:

And for hot sauce, I like to buy canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and use the sauce for enchiladas, etc.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:45am GP:

mmmmm Pierogis....Helped to have a Czech grandma.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:45am dc pat:

doug: I use those in marinades but they can be REALLY hot. 2 or 3 plus a little sauce will do it...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:45am Cecile:

I must find some

chiles in adobo are great.too
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:45am annie:

i love hot sauce, vinegar-free is hard to find, but i'm gonna try to make my own, now that i've stocked up on spices..
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:45am Chris:

Wow national pierogi day? Didn't know that. I miss my sainted grandmother's homemade pierogi, still the best I've ever had or will have. Never been able to get kielbasi anywhere near as good as what she used to buy either.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:46am dc pat:

I recently found some ground chipotle powder and put that on EVERYthing...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:46am Carmichael:

Doug, I make crock pot chicken tacos with chipotle/adobo. Super hot and tasty.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:47am Cecile:

Yes! I use Penzey's! Tis wonderful
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:48am still b/p:

Recalling one of the best hot sauce names I'd heard -- Slap My Ass and Call me Sally -- and when I just looked it up, found a collection with a bunch (an ass-load) of...umm, irreverent, impolite, caution-and-clench-inducing monikers. How many stars of brash d'ya like?
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:48am Cecile:

hmmmm. Carm, how do you do the chicken? You cook it before, or in the sauce?
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:48am BSI:

This tune is plunging my thursday morning brain into a crock-pot of rainbow tacos and carpets of hot-sauce freakybeeps. Nice.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:49am north guinea hills:

I got some excellent Nigerian chili powder from one of the West African markets in Harlem...., easy to mix w/ many things....
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:49am GP:

There is a Penzey's store near my office. I love just going in there and being thankful for my nose.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:49am annie:

now i want to go out and find a mexican restaurant.. hmmm.. yumm.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:50am north guinea hills:

Although for extreme heat w/ decent flavor, Blaire's hot sauce is my favorite. Dave's is just heat w/ no real flavor.....
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:50am Carmichael:

I put thighs right in the crockpot, along with the sauce and 2 or 3 peppers. A dash of granulated garlic if you wish, and put it on low until I get home from work. The house smells great, too ...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:51am trs:

creuset (or clone) or crock pot (or clone) ??
You can put the first one in the oven or on the stove. Or can you do the same w/ the liner of the crock pot? Eyes on one of the two.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:51am doug from DC:

Yes, I need to get a crockpot. My neighborhood has a large Ethiopean population. Have you tried berbere powder?
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:52am dc pat:

this cheval fou thing is workin for me
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:52am Carmichael:

Hmmm, no. Tell me more!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:53am Trap:

I was thinking about getting a 'crock pot' but I want it to look like the one my mother had in the 70's. Wanted to use it for brisket? Only because I have this marinade, left over from the AMAZING 'smokra' from Rick's Picks pickles (from NY).
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:54am fishmonkeystew:

I ate at an Ethiopian restaurant in Seattle once a few years ago. Amazing food. Good good good!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:55am annie:

now that the woodstove is partially fired up i can use the oven part to cook something all day. today i'll get it really hot and try to make rye crackers.. ahh. ethiopian food; i always think of the red sea..
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:55am Cecile:

then you shred the meat into the sauce.

trs - it's completely up to you. I wouldn't put a liner into the stove with the ones I have, although there are some you can. Creuset is great, but it's too heavy for my wrists - so I go with a crock pot many times or use a thinner pan.

AND you can still get great ones at thrift stores, Trap. I still have the two I got for my wedding 28+ years ago.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:55am north guinea hills:

yeah, dc pat, this cheval fou is phonomenal!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:55am Chris:

God, I'm starving now.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:56am Cecile:

I love the raw kitfo, but haven't eaten it in a while.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:56am north guinea hills:

I need to go out and get some food after cheval fou.....
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:57am trs:

oh, i guess a creuset is the same thing as a dutch oven. Dutch? French? Shows you what I know.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:57am dc pat:

yeah, DC is packed full of good Ethiopian food, thank gods...
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:57am BSI:

chris: no kidding.
& I was planning to sacrifice lunch today to go spelunking at yonder record store..... may have to re-think everything now.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:57am annie:

wow!!!! great gift for the recycling newlyweds!!! gift certificates to flea markets!!!
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:58am trouble:

this is a fabulous hot sauce resource! i can add my secret weapon is pimenton: a spanish smoked paprika that you can find stateside now. it comes in hot and sweet ( which is still hot) and they are so deep and tasty. I just added some to a split pea soup i made yesterday in the crack pot.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:58am Cecile:

The Le Creuset is enameled cast iron.
You can get Lodge pre-seasoned cast iron, it's cheaper and if you clean it right, it is non-stick.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:59am Cecile:

Trouble, that sounds scrumptious.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:59am doug from DC:

Berbere (pron. bear-bear) is a cross between chili powder and curry powder. It is dark red, from the chilis, but also contains ginger, corriander, allspice, etc., and something called ajwain, which tastes like thyme. It is ferociously hot and deliciously spicy.
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:59am Carmichael:

Cecile: I leave the thighs whole until ready to eat, and shred them in the sauce. I use thighs because the meat's a little sturdier than breast meat, and a little greasier, which helps the sauce (I think).

Doug: Try to get an oval crockpot, as opposed to the little round ones. You can do so much more with them, like cook a rack of ribs, or a sizable pot roast, etc ....
  Thu. 10/8/09 10:59am Jennique:

Oh la la la. Il fait chaud dans mon office.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:01am BSI:

Jeezus effing CRISCO that sounds marvelous. You're in the 'hood now, so where do you find this marvelous bear-bear?
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:03am Cecile:

I did get an oval one, so now I have three...:/
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:03am trs:

I think I'll go with the option that allows stove and oven. Flexibility in range gets me every time.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:03am dc pat:

Carm: yer makin' me want to eat dead chicken parts
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:04am Cecile:

Carm, one last question bone-in or boneless? Or whatever's on sale?
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:04am dc pat:

actually, if I ate meat, I'd do Carm's thing with turkey.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:04am chris:

Holy Tortoise!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:04am Carmichael:

Berbere it is! Thanks Doug.

I have a set of old Le Creuset (the brown enamel), and while they are excellent at evenness of heat and are very sturdy, decades of use have beat the crap out of them. And they are a bit hard to clean. I still use them to make stews or soups, but I do everything else with Calphalon pans.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:05am dc pat:

I cook everything in iron skillets. They rule and you NEVER have to replace them.

I normally get boneless thighs (from Whole Foods down the street), but I suppose bone-in may be just as good.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:06am doug from DC:

There may be some at Mom's on 14th just south of Buchanan. That's my fave tiny grocery. They have all of these signs about values, honesty and character, I think to deter holdups, but they might also be affiliated with the Ethiopean Orthodox church around the corner. But there are plenty of Ethiopean markets around 14th and Buchanan and in Adams Morgan, too.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:07am Carmichael:

YMA!!!!! Thanks, Trouble!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:09am Cecile:

they have the boneless on sale a lot.
my husband doesn't like them plain, but in chili or other things that disquise the look/flavor he's fine.

Great, a new recipe!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:11am trs:

hard to clean - bleah. Reading on a 'vs' google search that the old ones weren't enameled. I don'know.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:14am Cecile:

I know, Trouble.
*pours good Cabernet into the gutter in honor of dead homie*
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:15am dc pat:

I wonder if the Gourmet recipe archives will exist online in the future.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:16am Cecile:

epicurious has loads of their old recipes.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:17am laurabella:

is there really a soundway comp panama 3 trouble? i thought they were only up to #2 ??
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:18am BSI:

re: the death of Gourmet mag., it was inevitable. Conde Nast bought up several titles which were totally redundant vs. their existing stuff; Gourmet and Bon Apetit were destined for a cage-match in the conference-room of death. Two go in, only one comes out...
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:18am doug from DC:

Yeah, being in a publishing group that does a lot of magazines, this is a tough time for the industry. Read more magazines, everyone! Sure you can read articles on the internet, but it will never be the same as having bookcase shelves of back issues of The Wire.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:20am annie:

the chef for my small cafe swore by epicurious, but always changed the recipes... her cooking rocks!!! if you ever come down this way, i can show you where she works now..
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:20am Sweetchef:

Her voice sounds like a weak version of J. Foster
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:22am GP:

How about "Cook's Illustrated" Anyone here like that one or their "America's Test Kitchen" T.V. show?

I used to really look forward to Christopher Kimbles editorials in every issue...rarely about cooking but a lot about life.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:22am annie:

trouble, did i hear you say that scott wasn't coming in today and you were here til three?? ;) oh, you didn't? rats!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:23am dc pat:

my favorite cooking mag is La Cucina Italian. they have a great online recipe archive.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:24am Sweetchef:

As a chef I go with Cook's gourmet and and Bon are fluff, dc pat right on!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:27am BSI:

Doug is right, although in my scene (controlled-circ. trade magazines) it ain't about readers as much as it is about advertisers. So buy some 12x contracts, y'all! Keep your local BSI commenter in veggieburgers & chili-garlic sauce for another year!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:27am annie:

just bookmarked la cucina italian. the photos are to die for
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:28am kris:

this time I'm writing just to add to your immense writing audience and again show my appree-shah-sheesh-a-shee-hee-sheeaytion !
OH, YAY a belly dancing tune YAY !!!!!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:30am doug from DC:

Just read that DC has the country's largest population of Ethiopean-Americans (between 150,000 and 200,000). And the guy who invented the Bowflex machine was Ethiopean. The things you can find on Wikipedia.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:30am stu:

Hi Trouble

Great visit, too short, back to Muumiland today! see ya
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:34am dc pat:

doug: did you see the Ex w/ Mekuria? The audience was about half Ethiopian.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:35am Dominick:

Amanda guest vocal?
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:35am dc pat:

that is to say, half the audience was 100% Ethiopian....and about 75% drunk...
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:37am BSI:

Trouble: infinite thanks for the bolly tune.
Always a perfect additive to the thursday soup...
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:37am v k:

i love the looks on the faces of my co-workers when the come in my office and overhear tunes like "#2"
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:37am doug from DC:

Yes, that was a fantastic show. I need to hit up the local rekkid shops for some of his other albums.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:37am GP:

She is everywhere!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:38am Ike:

I never get a chance to try D.C.'s excellent Ethiopian restaurants anymore. I never visit D.C. without area relatives -- who dislike African food (but they do like spicy Asian food, to their credit). NY's Ethiopian places are just not quite as good.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:38am Baba:

Why does this music make me salivate? And now my stomach's grumbling ...
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:39am Cecile:

I don't even read the mags anymore.
I find the best recipes of late from Indian home cooks who post their curries on the 'net. They're cheap, easy and delicious.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:42am Baba:

Sounds like the perfect date.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:43am Cecile:

  Thu. 10/8/09 11:43am doug from DC:

Here it is, one of my current faves: http://www.abolethiopiancuisine.com/
If your in Silver Spring, MD, check it out.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:44am GP:

I like this Brazilian Girls song
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:46am annie:

doug looks like about a quarter mile from the metro?? not bad!! i used to deliver flowers in that area.. getting pretty cool there to have an ethiopian rest.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:49am Chris:

Yes, Abol is incredible. Worth a stop before a Pyrmid show, Doug.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:49am Ike:

There's a lot of interesting restaurants around there. I've been to Mandalay (Burmese) in S.S. a couple of times.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:49am Chris:

Ack. Pyramid.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:49am GP:

Emmanuelle Seigner can sing me to sleep anytime..did I just say that out loud?
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:49am BSI:

I'll heartily second Doug's suggestion.
That place kicks superior foodie arse.
Approved & endorsed!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:52am Carmichael:

Thanks, Trouble!! I think we're all headed off to a hearty and spicy lunch!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:54am doug from DC:

Annie, Silver Spring has completely changed. If you haven't been there in a few years, you likely won't recognize it. A lot of it is kind of mall-ish now, but there are some good restaurants, and of course the American Film Institute's AFI Silver Theater. Also Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center, where Sonic Circuits-related events continue throughout the year.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:54am Cecile:

I know I am!
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:55am trs:

Great food + music. Warming curried squash yam onion garlic potato carrot soup with some avocado'd toast on the side..happy lunch.
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:55am Baba:

Je crève de faim !
  Thu. 10/8/09 11:56am annie:

i sure hope scott's had his breakfast/lunch.....
