THIS JUST IN

Who's on Facebook? And why? What are you doing there?

Do we all really have this much time to fart around on the internet? Good lord, what did we DO with ourselves back in the dark ages? Remember board games? I miss those.

Do you have "pet names" for things in your house or food or stuff that you refer to when your kids or your significant other are around by words or names other than their real ones?

The kids call my imported sugar-free cherry Kool-Aid Mama's Saft (Mama's juice). And we call summer sausage "pricky korv" because it's prickig korv in Swedish (polka-dotted sausage). Even when speaking English, we all refer to cottage cheese by its Swedish moniker: keso. For some reason I'm only coming up with food examples, but you must get the idea.
