So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    On a more somber note, Cubs ace John Lester suffered a complete breakdown on the mound last Sunday in the 1st Inning against the Pirates
    and walked off the field to the mockery and taunts of Cub fans when he should have been applauded. We are all only too human, and Lester's failing
    ranks the annals of Baseball and he showed great courage and fortitude before and afterward. All Cub fans and fans in general should appreciate the
    game and its players; recognizing ourselves in good times and bad as being all too human.

    He'll be fine. He just needs to get some fried chicken and beer into him.

    I was going to recommend KFC, but the portions are smaller
    and the cole-slaw is not as good as it used to be.

    KFC? I'd recommend Brown's or Harold's chicken way before I recommend KFC.

    Don’t have Brown’s or Harold’s in my neck of the woods.
    But I’ll take your word if you say so.

    Will they do “take-out”? :)

    They're Chicago based chains, which is why I mentioned them. I do believe they do take out.

    Chicago?

    Now I’m thinking of “delicious” Chicago pizza.
    The other place would be New York City.

    Nowhere else do they have good pizza like Chicago
    or NYC. :p

    There are two kinds of people in this world, those that ride motorcycles, and those that I feel really sorry for!

    One more young motorcycle-rider on the road > one more organ-donor. ;)

    Is a battery-change on a Casio F91 worth it? :D

    When Brother Lester was on the Red Sox, Popeyes was his fried chicken of choice. There actually was a Popeyes franchise in the Fenway Park building, and it made regular deliveries to the clubhouse. Lester, Beckett, and Lackey would adjourn to the clubhouse to indulge -- sometimes during games, a habit which was viewed dimly by the Boston sports media.

    Ok, when you take a little walkaround after lunch, including some rollmopses, you got nice little herring-burps, circa all 30 seconds. ;)

    I loooove Popeyes. We finally got one two towns over, and I sincerely consider the 20 minute trip there worth it every time I go.

    Sometimes that easier said than done. I give some latitude to parents with toddlers (since I am one).

    What's worse to me is pulling into a parking lot to find a parking spot to get out with your baby and seeing some healthy 20-something dude jump out of his shiny new pickup with his gym clothes on after he just parked in the "Mothers with Children" parking spot.
    Or--
    Slowly cruising a parking lot to find a spot (or even leave) but you can't move because some jerk wanted to give his wife curbside drop off so he parks right in the driving lane...and sits there for 15 minutes waiting for his wife to come back out with the groceries. A lot FULL of empty spaces but this super special person can't park in a spot like the rest of us, he has to park in the lane like he's in a fire engine!

    I'm a firm believer that you should always seek to minimize your negative impact on the world around you. Use your turn signal, don't litter, and get out of everybody else's way as much as possible and as soon as possible. This isn't YOUR planet. You ain't special.

    busy texting while driving.

    Well said. There's a type of motorist that I can never fathom. You are on a multi-carriageway, there's a problem, the traffic is slowing to a crawl. There's always one or two driver's who have just got to change lanes, and not always into whichever lane is moving slightly quicker, just into another lane. Why?

    Brown's is very good, edges KFC a bit, and the fries seal the deal.

    Aah, "Yodels", mentioned in King-of-Queens, did really exist! :)
