Presumably the same as LesterOfPuppets - once my early guesses had wiped out most common letters (and that middle letter was two different ones - guess 3 had no chance but told me a lot about the letters) there weren't many actual possible words. The long thing (as with LOP) was figuring out actual legal words at that point!

It was great. I want to follow up for the cooking method. Not slimy at all. It almost looked flash fried. For a starter we had Bombay Rolls. They looked like cinnamon buns but were flavored with coriander.

Canít remember if youíve been here:

Went for lunch a couple of years ago. Very good, and popular with the local Indian crowd. Saw people getting spreads like the one I had for dinner last night.

People need to burnish their self esteem somewhere else and make more room for the fun people. The mods are part of the problem, we need to stop responding to people who have no sense of humor.

I've been meaning to get that off my chest for probably ... years.

Doug, if you want to start a parody thread, be my guest.

No fun allowed. This is serious business.

Excited to have some company/competition on my commute, I take the hands off my handlebars and start accelerating. Front Light goes to pass, but since Iím accelerating he passes me at about 19 mph with a small speed differential and I slot on his wheel, he glances back and sees this. A few seconds later i carried my speed and pull up next to him while riding on my top tube. Dude literally says ďwhateverĒ and I tell him to stay safe and enjoy his ride, and take off because itís clear he did not enjoy my company.

what I donít get is why would you pass someone who has his hands off his bars at 19 mph. This is obvious bait, why would he take it if he didnít want any part of it? Also he passed without as much as a hello, which tbh made me a little bit upset, might not have sat on my top tube while he was blowing up if he was more polite. I was on a hybrid with no kit and helmet hanging off my bars, so he probably thought I was a noob.

Cool story, bro.

I'm guessing whatever is inside that jigger is hot AF.

Have not been but will put on the list. We are still only doing carry-out. Not quite ready to eat in a restaurant indoors. NTTAWWT

Speaking of which, currently waiting for our carry out dinner. She is getting seafood bibimbap and I am getting Pad Thai.
