You'd think all that chowdah would get Boston on the list, but I guess all the whining about the Sox and the weather burns it off.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

His boyfriend fed me well. He cooked for me everyday! Joao, treated me well eventhough he walked my feet off.


*edit--I'm so embarrased. I called Joao's boyfriend it. That was a total typo. He was the sweetest cutest thing..Gosh I'm glad Joao doesn't read non-tennis...with my luck this will be the first thread.

A book I was reading contains a humorous "map of the US by body weight", which is really cute. Pity I can't draw it here.

It looks kinda like a big blubbery seal - tapered at its tail and nose ends (salad-eating California and New York) and fat in the middle.

There was a TV show on in the UK last night about last years (and the past 3 years) #1 fattest city Houston. There were some HUGE people on that show who would eat and eat and eat and eat til there was no more food left within a 3 mile radius. And I'm sure they explained why people seemed to be so fat in Texas but I wasn't listening... I was too stunned by what I was seeing to hear... And I thought I was greedy.

I seen that last night too
They said at the end of the programme that the people of Houston are starting to realize how unhealthy they are and are taking up exercise and such.
When it cut to the shot of HUGE people jogging in the park, I thought it won't be long until Houston is the earthquake capital of America! I jest (honest)
