"I'll have what she's having."

(Sorry, had to do it. "When Harry Met Sally..." was on cable yesterday.)

LittleJill / October 5, 2009 11:17 AM

A nervous breakdown.

Cheryl / October 5, 2009 11:30 AM

A hell of a time with my seasonal allergies. The doc is going to fit me in tomorrow to make sure it's not the flu, but it's not the flu. It could be an ear infection though.

printdude / October 5, 2009 12:07 PM

Coffee, Black

David / October 5, 2009 12:11 PM

I am having none of it.

Some Hipster / October 5, 2009 12:29 PM

Pabst Blue Ribbon

(old commercial reference that most folks probably won't get)

A Mai Tai at 8:30 in the morning.

(on last day of vacation in Kaua'i. vacation "rules" in effect.)

Anthony Lewellen / October 5, 2009 2:11 PM

At the moment, a slow day at the office. Later, hopefully a relaxing evening at home.

Cheryl- I f you have not heard it you should listen the this episode of Radio Lab. And then if you haven't yet, every other episode as well but the allergy cure at the end is particularly compelling.

Brubeck / October 5, 2009 2:17 PM

A lot of satisfying fantasies.

annie / October 5, 2009 2:24 PM

A case of the Mondays and probably a case of the Octobers. I'm not ready for this weather.

A. Lewellen / October 5, 2009 2:24 PM

Trouble posting to this thread.

Billy G / October 5, 2009 5:11 PM

Zywiec and a shot of Krupnik.

Steven / October 6, 2009 3:58 AM

A conniption fit.

printdude / October 6, 2009 8:05 AM

Another coffee, Black.

Baldeesh / October 6, 2009 10:08 AM

A better day than yesterday.

And homemade yogurt with honey and dried cranberries.

MERLOT mixed with
MALORT. I call it

Meems / October 6, 2009 4:14 PM

Stuffed Vidlia Onions and a big bottle of red wine. Also anxiety about where I'm going to live in a few weeks. Anyone know anyone?

Y A J / October 6, 2009 5:30 PM

I'm having dinner at my desk at work. Same place I had lunch. And breakfast.

mike-ts / October 6, 2009 10:45 PM

Tea, Earl Grey, hot.

And wow, to see someone mention Old Krupnik (pronounced kroop'-nyik). I haven't seen that thing for ages - had some Polish buds whose parents kept the stuff around. Quite yummy, as I recall, like a honey schnapps. May have to get a bottle, for the tea, of course.

fluffy / October 6, 2009 10:57 PM

kind of a mini- identity crisis. But it'll all be ok.

printdude / October 7, 2009 7:56 AM

Pie for breakfast. With my coffee, black.

jlp / October 7, 2009 2:50 PM

earl grey w/ cream and sugar and a chocolate carmello cookie, with a side of fellowship writing. delish.

Sue / October 7, 2009 6:23 PM

a cow.

Brian / October 8, 2009 1:26 PM

My fourth cup of coffee. Which will be followed by my fifth, of course.

SR / October 8, 2009 2:57 PM

I'm having none of it!

bob / October 8, 2009 3:47 PM
