    I love using the elliptical machine, but I always drop my weight by 10-20 pounds on all of the cardio machines in order to improve my calorie estimates. I still think they are high, but not completely unreasonable.

    The square watermelons were strange enough…the other shaped produce is downright creepy. I’m not sure why. Just is. Funky!!!

    Ha! Those public radio stations really are turning up the fire under their listeners. Even funnier is during pledge drive days when the hosts start losing their marbles from pressuring you so much. :P

    I’m not on Metafilter, so can’t post a comment there, but my own truly 100% reliable cure for hiccups is to swallow a teaspoonful of vinegar. It works EVERY time…
