Enter me into the drawing... whatever, LOL!When I don't get the Grand Prize, I wouldn't choose

Posted in thread: Can I just never buy yeast again? on 10-17-2012 at 06:09 PM

When it comes to in-laws, I am a royal prick. When they want to be decent, I am decent . . .

Like many others, when I first read this question, my mind went totally blank. I was like,
"WTF? Is there nobody I would toss back a pint or three with?" Then my mind went on a tirade of
listing out a...
