Re: How Did You Two Meet?

In unrelated news of India, a friend of mine asked whether she ought to return to NYC as planned for some parties or stay an extra week at an Ayurvedic spa. After making some teeth-grinding noises, I told her that even the most glamorous parties would just be full of people complaining about the weather.

spoons, plates and dishes became weapons as wedding guests tried to force the bride to change her mind

This is why Britain was able to run India so very many fewer soldiers per person than they were able to run Ireland.

I heard of a guy who solves this problem by holding a sign reading "I have a medical condition."

2. Indeed. If the Irish wanted to start a fight at a party, they'd at least know to pick up the knives and forks rather than the spoons.

At weddings, the caterers have copied what the ball parks do. All plastic bottles.

Almost this exact series of events occurred in Satyajit Ray's World of Apu. Any lingering questions about its plausibility are now cleared up.

8. Cheap Irish whiskey such as you might get at a big party is usually sold in plastic bottles these days. I try not to speculate why (it's cheaper?).

Speaking of cheap whiskey, I tried Ezra Brooks. It was very good, especially for the price. I didn't like Evan Williams so much. I tend to confuse them because of the E***name, similar price, and them being next to each other on the shelf

Ezra Brooks sounds more like a columnist, Evan Williams sounds more like a TV commentator.

I thought it was that the phthalates emasculate the drinker and thereby curtail violence.

Even the cheap stuff I drink still comes in glass bottles. Maybe vodka comes in plastic?

Ezra Brooks sounds like Ezra Klein, Evan Williams sounds like Brian Williams.

No, Ezra Brooks sounds like David Brooks.

Ezra Brooks sounds like Ezra Klein and David Brooks each kept half their names and combined them into a single name.

20 is probably ten years too soon.

No, that's "David Klein."

Are you saying I should make sure my apocalypse bunker is fully stocked before 2025 rolls around?
