I always wanted to use that phrase.

Crazy ticketers in England.
Which anniversary is it appropriate to celebrate at this restaurant?
Bridges from around the world.
The last line of this article of a can of gravy assault made me laugh out loud.
A bedtime story Cheech Marin would love.
Hollywood Trash. If it ain't stars - it's just trash.
Speaking of Hollywood - really cool movie cars.
