AdamG of Boston Common is back.

In the Gone East comments area he reports, "Ayup! Xmas in Illinois with the in-laws. A word to the wise: Do NOT book a flight that involves transferring from US Airways to United or vice-versa. It just sucks and you will end up at home missing a suitcase or two."

You're pandering to the lazy.

If they don't go digging into the comments, they don't deserve to read the good stuff. It's sorta okay to lure them into the comments section with references to chocolate pudding and unclothed cellular phone companies trios, but if the only way the masses will read the comments is to have them boosted into a front page story is doing too much for them, imho.

IMHO means "In my humble opinion"

Yeah, right.

Thanks Jack for telling me that Adam is back.

I've been going through a massive Adam withdrawal!

Hey, Steve:

1) Aw shucks!

2) Robitussin helps sooth withdrawal symptoms - and has the amazing side effect of making you just not care at all when the plane hits sudden turbulence.

My solution to withdrawal is to not stop injesting whatever it is you are withdrawing from.

Works for me. Although I have having cravings for chocolate pudding on top of a three-layer cake.

The dealer held back on the juice over the holidays so I couldn't get my fix!

Steve, Steve, Steve. You're not on campus anymore. It's not like you can run across to Chi Phi at all hours of the night and find several options for providers. Or have that great 24 hour All-Star Dairy at your service. (I loved the late-night runs to that place. I once went with CP and his future wife Jolene -- who Jack met and drooooooooooooled over --- and needless to say, this is an Uncle Ellis story ((don't all CP stories feature Uncle Ellis?)) and it ends with me and CP on the floor of one of the aisles laughing uncontrollably at Jolene while the guy at the register gives us this "Oh great, more stoners to deal with -- I hate my job" look.)

Anyway, you have to plan in advance. Stock up when you know the store will be closed. Or else face the withdrawals.

Jolene... oooohhhhhh!
