Me: iTunes has this feature that creates playlists using your favorite songs.
Charlotte: What's it called?
Charlotte: How does it work?
Me: You find a song you like then click on the little ATOM BOMB looking deal in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.

It's enough to make even Steve Jobs turn his iPad into an iFRISBEE.
I'm sure Henrietta and Merna have their hearts in the right place, but would somebody please tell them they can't sing? Merna on the other hand, never looked happier. Guess she was upset over Henrietta getting the solo.
#9 You never regret something you didn't say.
Two pairs of lovers are having the "perfect" Hawaiian vacation until they discover that psychopaths are murdering tourists. Don't you just hate it when that happens?
After a long day fingerpainting nothing quite says refreshment like a cold, tall Hamm's beer. It's the beer that made nap time famous (and necessary!). In the spirit of full disclosure, that's me on the right.
