Seattle baristas universally used "split shot" to describe half decaf. When I say it in San Francisco, they stare at me as if I just spoke Klingon. Is this a conspiracy by the Seattle baristas to make me look like a tool? Or am I a tool simply by virtue of ordering a half decaf in the first place? Discuss.

After a cumulative 9 hours over two days, we have California license plates! There's gotta be a way to make that faster... Still, everyone we met all along the way was incredibly friendly - from the insurance office to the smog check to the DMV.

I found a 20 sided die on the pavement on my morning run and pocketed it. Let me know if you need to make any saving throws today.

Okay, that's interesting feedback. Tyrannosaurus rex arms I had heard, giant pipe I had not. :)

So if I buy this I can't get my son an iPhone (he is only 10), and I can't admit to actually buying legos for myself (even though my wife bought me mindstorm a couple years ago). It'll have to be a "family" gift.
