It's not going to happen, but I had considered doing a Secret Santa exchange this year between my friends. Set up four levels of dollar amounts ($0-10, $10-20, $20-30, $30+) and let each participant choose a level, then randomly assign Secret Santas within each level. It would be a neat way to get my friends involved in something new, but there would be a lot of deadbeats, and after WPS3 crashing and burning, I really don't want to get involved in something like that right now. I don't think I'll be doing any new friend-interactive things until next February when I do my annual Oscars contest. Any comments on the Secret Santa thing? Was I wrong to give up on it?

Indigestion

I came upon a hot dog guide online, and soon found a similar pizza guide. Besides making me hungry, both guides surprised me at how many varieties of each I had already tried in my life (Memphis-style dogs have been a favorite for years), and tempted me with more kinds to get out there and taste.

Promotion Poll Redux

Rock Block players: I wonder if the sidebar poll that exists now, which keeps asking whether you think artist A or artist B is greater, is an inefficient and inaccurate way to gather information about artist rankings. Go »
