A shared language

You sir, seem to have a knack for getting into the strangest situations.

Maybe you could grow a thick, scraggly, mountain-man-esque beard and pick your teeth a lot, that would probably…

Howdy, from the West Coast

Nah, you should get a shirt that says "LESBIAN". That would be a more confusing and fun way to announce your attraction to women. Of course, you'd probably have to spend just as much time…

Sour crop

Ye gods, I think I've just found myself simultaneously highly entertained and thouroughly appalled.

Now, if I could just figure out why the former sentiment seems to follow the latter on such…

Retro: Adventures on Speedway Boulevard

Sorry Dunstan, according to http://wafflehouse.com/, they don't have any restaurants in California. It does, however, look as though IHOP is there in full…

I can't help it. The people Dunstan has met in his recent stories remind me of exactly the sort one would meet in an IHOP or Waffle House.

I really don't care much for the food at either…

Thank you! I'm here all week. Try the embalmed pig trotter, and don't forget to tip your waitresses.

How does one determine whether their lettuce is ruffled enough to qualify as "slightly ruffled?" For that matter, how ruffled is too ruffled? What does the W3C have to say about standards for…

It seems to me that a sandwich's recipie is generally conveyed via the name of the sandwich: "peanut butter & jelly", "ham & cheese", "mayonaisse & banana", "bangers & mash", "Penn & Teller",…

Retro: Ordering food in America

Honestly, I can't remember the last time I had breakfast food for breakfast (Oh wait, it was saturday). Usually, breakfast food is more of a late-night thing for me. Stopping at the local 24-hour…

Every storyteller worth his exaggerations knows that embellishment is the difference between a good story and a great story. After all, you're entertaining, not giving testimony, right? ;) …

Welcome to the world of mass customization, my friend :)

It is interesting to see the underlying assumptions that are made about what is up for negotiation in America and what is not. …

Walking on Dartmoor

Ah, how I would have loved to be there. I love hiking.

I heard that the Appalachian Trail can be quite daunting, and although I've never hiked it, I have hiked the area of the Smoky Mountains…

Dunstan, you absolutely made my day. Your site is a real inspiration to me, and stories like this are a big reason why.
