Supervisor: Nope, sorry.
Caller: Oh, darn, okay bye.

Nothing to report. The TV broke, we need a new one. Suggestions?
Also, creepy death masks.

I think $12.99 + $2.75 (S&H) is quite reasonable for your safe return should you in fact be abducted by aliens.

Well, they ended up showing the top two Doritos spots and "Power of the Crunch" was one of the ones shown. YAY! Congrats to my friend's friend.
