You got that right. Wow-- did you just leave a comment? That's gotta be a first.

Oh-- can't wait to go the dentist this afternoon. That'll be fun.

HA! Oh my goodness, what fun! I am right there with you on Almost Famous. Love that one...especially Billy Crudup.
How was the dentist?
I had to go to SS office (that's social security not secret service) then the DMV office.
Kickass way to spend my Saturday.
ARGH!!

Damn dentist...(mumbles something that sounds like gestapotrucker). I have to go and get a root canal, a new post, a new crown and deep cleaning. Fun...All of this has gotten worse in the years since I've been serious about flossing...I think we know what the culprit is...

Just popped over from Mona's Apple. Great looking smoker, I'm jealous. Cool site too.

Thanks, Greg! The cooker is new-- we've had it about 2 months. She's a beauty. Those Klose pits are no joke.

I checked out your blog a few times-- I'll have to add a link.

To that anonymous poster-- I will continue to delete your pointless comments. You are just looking for attention and will get no more from me. You came along to insult people and started right off the bat with nasty remarks.

Damn Matt, you are a trouble maker. I wish I was here earlier and got a chance to read all the annon. posts. Sounds like she got in your craw good.

Deleting annon's post is one way to deal with it, but there is another. A great advantage to that BYC you purchased is the fact that the horizontal chamber is just about the right size for a human body. Could be smoked in about 12 hours and makes great dog food.

I'm not leaving my name becuase I don't want to be stalked and forced to commit murder. But I think you know who I be.

I don't need any more encouragement...I'm there.

Troublemaker.

Oh rats...I'm getting to this point slowly but surely, but so far I'm actually getting a kick out of this moron anon. She's putting up a doggone good fight I'll give her /him that much!

Hilarious, I'm out for two days and have a blog-ebrity death match to read up on.

Awesome!

I just responded to her, can't believe she started jumping on your and heels blogs. Absolutely ridiculous.
