    You don't remember the time she attempted a death drop and fell through the chimney of that small family dwelling? I'm amazed that she could walk out the door with such a beatific smile.

    Santa Rosa.

    a few pieces of music that Elizabeth Manley skated to:

    Snowflakes Are Dancing
    The Stone Flower
    When the Saints Go Marching In
    Murder on the Oriental Express
    Irma la Douce
    Canadian Concerto

    How Asian. :D

    I loathe both of them.

    If abandoned on an island together, who would eat who?*
    Alice eats Paula (with a pretentious sprinkling of organic African rosemary :drama:)
    Paula eats Alice (deep fried with extra Maiyonaaaaaaaiiiiizzzz and served atop a slave child's head)
    The island eats both of them
    purple lesbian cannibalism

    *and get your mind out of the gutter :mad:

    Anthony Bourdain arrives on the island, uniting the two in struggle against him before the ghost of John Hess arrives and alerts them all to the presence of the the Cradocken, from whom they escape on several dhoni of finest coconut wood.

    Traveling down to the trench; that's infinitely more difficult IMHO.

    Exchange rate crisis
    or
