    So many of the couples I know could have paid off student loans, or put a down payment on a house, with the money they spent on elaborate weddings.
    Dina sometimes watches Say Yes to the Dress and what I've seen of it makes me incredibly sad.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Even been invited to a dinner at a friend's house, and then thinking, "Sweet! I'll save money tonight!" And then, "I should probably bring wine as thanks..." And then realizing that the wine cost more than what your original dinner plan would have been?

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    It's really not necessary to break the bank on wine, 8.

    Well, the original dinner would have been ramen, or a Popeye's meal.

    Ah, understood.

    I was thinking that you were planning to bring a $50 bottle of wine to the dinner or something.

    But seriously, D is right. There are some fantastic bottles of wine out there for $10, $12 and $15.

    I remember eating at one of their establishments that's in Chicago. I'm a sucker for shrimp, so of course I enjoyed it.

    Great story behind Two-Buck Chuck. The reason it's so cheap is that the owner of Trader Joe's (I think his name is Joe), as part of the divorce settlement to his wife, has to give her all profits from wine sales. So he sells the wine at cost just to throw mud in her eye.

    Got transfered to a new account at work and has to make friends with reps from a host of new vendors. One of them is FoxNews.com, who I am now emailing my phone number.

    I feel unclean.

    I've officially sold out.

    Well, first of all, it was about Charles Shaw aka Chuck, not "Trader" Joe. He was engaged in divorce and had to divvy up his assets, so he put out cheap wines to lower the value of his winery.

    But, you know, since it's all bullshit urban legends anyway, I suppose the details don't really matter.

    I checked Snopes. It's just cheap wine, is all.

    Anyone ever gotten a call on their cell phone from a phone number that doesn't exist?

    I got a call at about 4:30 this afternoon from a number in area code 403 (which is western Canada apparently). I called it back and got a "this number is not in service" message.

    Google the number - I bet you'll find lots of people have.

    I always Google unknown numbers, only to find that they are all some kind of marketing.

    Just took the online Jeopardy qualifying test. Don't think you'll be seeing me in Sony Pictures Studios any time soon.
