And you wonder why the Republican Party keeps sending you all those
donation solicitations. "Dude, check out this guy's credit card bill! He
eats like a king! He must be one of us!"
Of course, I'm not above believing that those little magnetic strips in
the $20 bills are tracking a lot more data than the Feds let on. That's
why I only pay in $1s and $5s. And quarters.

wanted to leave you something to say.

smear their eyeliner.

Did they set off the fog machine hidden in the soffit in the lobby when
you were there? Takes it to a whole 'nother level.
AND it's around the corner (well, in Cary terms) from 2 of the best
Indian restaurants in the Triangle. What more do any of us need? If Cary
rocked as hard as Charlotte, I'd move there.
p.s. I've had independent confirmation that there are people who don't
like having change brought back to them when dining. People, what the
fuck is the matter with you?
