Middle East peace talks would be more productive over Starbucks Coffee. * While I am quite productive with three hours of windshield time and a blackberry, I am even more productive when I am the passenger. * At 3:30am, a pocket 4 and 2 of spades seems like a great time to go all in, but rarely does that straight draw pan out. * The best time to go to a brand new bar and get face time with the owner is at 7:30pm. He is there, but no one else is. * Despite Halloween only being on the 31st of October, some women at the Ritz in Dallas think it should last all year long as evidence by their choice of make up. * Despite Halloween only being on the 31st of October, some men at the Ritz in Dallas think it should last all year long as evidence by their choice of pick ups lines. * Without being a animal rights activist or caring to greatly about Japan's whaling trade, Whale Wars on the Animal Planet is still a fascinating show. * The difference between a martini with blue cheese stuffed olives and regular olives is earth shattering and should be explored more often. * Some observations, while true, are better left unsaid as they reveal the depth, or lack there of, of your intellect and social prowess. * ESPN.com is a great website, but the real genius is the pop up adds.

They will stare and debate whether you are fashionable or gay.
