I'm here more for the sake of hurrying a paper that is hung up on 1 (well not quite) major point. Having a UV Deuterium2 lamp go out, but the diagnostic tests all say it's a circuit board led me down the wrong path for 2 days before finally getting things back up.

That would work too. At one time, my dad's work was going to transfer him there, but we went elsewhere. I would have liked to have lived there, I think. (Anchorage was another place we were considered for and never went, much to my disappointment. And then there was Australia....).

Think they were from S. California, which is probably why I saw them so many times. They were one of those bands, like No Doubt and The Toasters, that seemed to be the opening act for every show that I was at for a while.

And BTW, you can just refer to the Circle Jerks and Dead Milkmen as "Punk" bands.

Mountain Dew was invented in Tennesee by a guy from Virginia. He was a graduate of Virginia Tech and came to talk to us on orientation day. (I guess he was supposed to inspire us to go out and invent too sweet over-caffeinated beverages or something.) I don't think I've had a mellow yellow in 25 years, but I love the diet dew.

So, my co-worker was sayin', "It's weird how that kid's been to nursery school, daycare, aunt's houses and with her grandparents and yet, when she is brought into the office, she hides in the corner of her mother's cubicle!"

I said, "I think it goes down something like this: Okay, honey... now, we all know how ugly you are, so make sure you hide in the corner so you don't scare anyone. You know that screaming and running is disruptive to the workplace and mummy cannot afford to get sacked..."

No racial identification? How do you explain the Asian girl or the Latina teacher? Or look at the title character's parents and tell me they're not a mixed-race couple.

But, on more ridiculous kid's show thoughts:

On WordWorld, where everything is built out of words, what happens if, say, Frog gets addicted to crack and needs an extra "CK" and cuts up Duck? Is this murder?

What if they want to play baseball and spell "bat," but it becomes the living, flying variety of bat? Are they stuck with another stupid character and still can't play baseball?
