Here's a word I had not run across before :

Sounds tasty, makes me wish I was somewhere in the Islands, even though I've never been (except courtesy of Hollywood ;\) ). . .

Hey I used to drink Suffering Bastards back in the day. Now I finally know what made them taste so good. Falernum! \:D

What did we know in college? What is fun is fun (Fun = Fun), that was my motto.
