      Givemetomatoes, I hope you won't take this wrong, but your last three posts are the most spelling challenged that I have seen in a while! I think you're talking about bread here (bagels) and not cute little dogs (beagles)...at least I hope so!

        I know givemetomatoes in real life so I get treated to emails from this person. Believe it or not the emails are even worse. Way worse. And he sounds more like a valley girl in real life too. Totally. But we had fun on sunday and I drank the strongest margarita I've ever had the pleasure of imbibing at Woody's. The shrimp bisque soup was very tasty there too.

      There's a tiger eating contest?

      that's awesome.

      Maybe the zoo has some extras.

        sorry, I was really drunk when writing these posts and I was using a search engine as a online dictionary. Of course I ment bagels, not beagels. And wile I would be amused at a beagle eating contest, I think the furry yappyness of it all would just be too much for me. Any more conducive answers to the question stated would be much appreciated.

        Finally for the spelling dictators of the world, a little fun.

        "Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
        In the forests of the night,
        What immortal hand or eye
        Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"

        Tygers are yummy.

        Just try finding a spelling mistake.

          Call me a skeptic, but, givemetomatos - givemecarbs, do we have a split personality at work here?

            Nooooooooo! John spells just fine when he has a mind to. And he can be more lucid after he has done a few jello shots. We did a couple of team reviews of bars in the 'burbs early last summer. But John is my LDC and he decided to riff on my user name last spring when we had the whole tomato scare. He is very original like that. He also claims to be a shrimp hater even though he loves crabs. So I watched him order the shrimp bisque on sunday, at Woody's, copying me as usual. After he had slurped up every last bit I asked him what kind of soup he ordered. He told me crab bisque or something and I had the pleasure of informing him that the soup he so enjoyed was in fact shrimp bisque. Ha ha! Which led to a long boring discussion of his history with shrimp. We concluded that he just had never had decent shrimp before, poor dear. John does have a split personality when it comes to spelling though.

                Oh sorry. I don't really like acronyms myself but I couldn't resist. It is the term Mitch uses, Lovely Dining Companion. He he.
