We rented Treasure Planet the other day. Must resist saying it…
Aarrrgh, the nerd comes through! HOW DO THEY BREATHE IN SPACE?
This reminds me, watch those gift cards…they’re designed to expire

Well, we gamed Saturday. I had a scare with my hard drive.
I suspect that it may die on me and I no longer trust it. It booted

icing and nearly twice the size of the former. Bigger, bolder, rougher,
tougher. In other words there is no other.
Grrr…at work, they never replaced the
good coffee container and now someone hid the decaf coffee container
so the Caffeinites can’t lay hold on it. Where’s me treasure? Arrr!
