My mom doesn't want to pay $50 a month for DSL, but she's willing to try a cable modem for $30-35 a month. But AOLTimeWarner, her cable TV provider, doesn't offer cable modem access in Sarasota, only Tampa and Orlando. Strangely, they offer digital cable, with dozens of movie channels and over a hundred radio stations built in. How do I know this? My mom pays for digital cable TV every month, even though she doesn't use it. The only time that I know of in the past year when she watched TV was on the evening of September 11th.

Spring Break, Day One

Left Macomb at 4:15. Kelly was getting off work in Galesburg at 5:30 and really wanted me to meet her boss, so I was happy to be leaving early for a change. Go »

A Different Pepsi Challenge

Do any soda-drinkers here refuse to drink the caffeine-free varieties? I have known a number of people who defiantly take that stance, and it always baffles me. Go »

Sonic

Is anybody else here a fan of America's Drive-In? Personally I don't care for it much, but Kelly loves their cranberry limeade and we go about once a week late at night. Go »
