No automated shenans are requested. Per the long version here, "vote slamming" will be grounds for disqualification.

More on Hot Pastrami Sandwiches: -- Ryan originally saw it as a Wheel of Fortune answer, and seeing it to be a perfect game show answer, vowed to use it some day. His action was noted by the owner of a pastrami blog, who had just come from national pastrami champion Langer's Delicatessen.

Okay, I did the first two. I only have a work Twitter though.

I knew Ru$h H0lt when his main claim to fame was having been on Jeopardy.

Just voted. Also, "greatest metal bassists" has reached the semifinal stage. I voted for Steve Harris over Cliff Burton. You can vote here:

Actually, don't go to that fucking poll, where people apparently voted for the bassist from fucking Dream Theater aka worst band ever over motherfucking icon fucking Geezer Butler.

It's true that you can't really make the Harris over Burton case on technical ability alone. But come on that guy is the soul of Maiden.

I don't believe so, but I'm inexplicably unaffected - my iPad either believes I'm an international user or is failing to check where I am. A VPN might be able to reproduce these conditions, but I didn't do anything to bring them about.

(This is one reason that I have refused to update either the MLB app or my iOS.)

Bostonians/Cantabrigians. I'll be at Harvard for a work thing next week, so will be free either on the Tuesday evening or Friday if anyone fancies a meetup.

re: 25

As far as I know, Friday whenever. I fly in Tuesday early afternoon so it'd be evening only. I fly back out on Saturday evening. Work all day Wednesday, Thursday and then I'm free Friday and Saturday daytime.

Friday evening would probably be better for me than Tuesday, but I could do either.

If we met at a bar early (say, 6:00), Tweety and I could come either day for ca. an hour with the baby. We're also willing to host at our place either night (again, starting ca. 6:00), 'til whenever on Friday or until 10ish on Tuesday.

I might be able to make it over to Boston Friday evening, but I'm guessing it would take 3 hours for me to get there after work, so not before 8.

We could also do Saturday daytime pretty easily with the babby, especially if it was someplace babby friendly.

Lackey? Facing Verlander? Why, God?

Because God is fucking awesome, that's why[^1]. Oh, man, I wish I could have at least listened to this game--I could only check the score intermittently--but edging out Verlander 1-0 is so sweet.

[1]: I'd prefer not to chance a rematch, though.

Don't worry, guys, the cooking I did for you was better! But this was more colorful since it was from the garden, yellow tomatoes, red and orange peppers, yellow onions, green and purple basil. That still wasn't enough to get the girls excited, but oh well.
