Bad 'Stache, Double Shirted, Closed Mouth Chewer..
Sunday, 09 January 2011 04:00
WARNING! There's a really gross picture of a girl playing the "See Food" game on the next page.
Going Off Course - Katie Weaver does not chew with her mouth open. If she did, her boyfriend Mark Evenson would dump her. Sure, she may dabble with open-mouth mastication when Mark's not around, but we suspect that she doesn't. She knows that just one slip in his presence would end an otherwise beautiful relationship.
Triathlete / former ditch digger / bad 'stache grower Mark Evenson is really a totally cool guy in spite of his inflexible position on open mouth chewing. A man of varied eccentricities, Mark almost always wears two shirts at the same time, has a double-pierced left ear, has a 'thing" for demonically possessed defunct cars, is passionate about pug riding (what is that?), worships the articulate matricidal infant Stewie Griffin and lives in a corn field.
Otherwise he's a pretty normal guy....
No Good Guys...

Movie Review - If you like movies with happy endings or the ones where Good triumphs over Evil, DON'T RENT the 2005 psychological thriller Hard Candy. Know right up front, there are no good guys in this twisted character study.
But, if you love world class acting AND can handle difficult, sometimes totally yucky, subject matter, then by all means rent this movie.
The themes of this film are pedophilia, revenge, rage and torture. Good turbo training fare? Not sure. At the end of this movie, one Evil is vanquished by another Evil. Is it up to the viewer to decide which one was worse? No. If in the end you find yourself siding with either the victimizer-turned-victim or his diabolically ingenius revenge-seeking torturer, then we suggest to get professional help as soon as possible. Seriously....
Gelly Girl Got Shushed...

Going Off Course - MTN's Hawaiian researcher Wiki Pedia sent us this: "Gelachter syndrome (GS) is a neuro-genetic disorder characterized by ...frequent laughter or smiling, and an unusually happy demeanor.
"GS is a classic example of genomic imprinting in that it is usually caused by deletion or inactivation of genes on the maternally inherited chromosome 47 while the paternal copy, which may be of normal sequence, is imprinted and therefore silenced. ....GS is named after Austrian geneticist Dr. Kichert Gelachter, who first described the syndrome in 1962....One who has GS is sometimes known as a "Gelly" because of the syndrome's name; the patient is distinguishable from non-sufferers by their remarkably youthful, happy appearance."
It would be wrong for us, as total non-doctors, to diagnose someone. BUT, were kinda-sorta convinced that triathlete / chronic smiler / terminally happy Anne Hartman has Gelachter syndrome....

Body odor tops the list as one of the most embarrassing public discussions. Most people are embarrassed to talk about body odor because they don't want to admit they have it.
Others don't want to admit they smell body odor on someone else. This article is designed so that you don't have to discuss your body odor, just read about ways to prevent it. There are several steps you can take to severely reduce or completely rid yourself of your body odor problems.
You have probably heard it preached over and over again to drink 6-8 glasses of water. This not only improves your overall health, but also your body odor. The more water you drink, the more apocrine sweat..

Going Off Course - Building model ships is one of Steve Paladie's passions. The 68-year-old triathlete / nordic skier / retired guy / Juicy Lucy and Papa Murphy's "Cowboy" lovin' Bloomington resident who claims that he's actually from Eden Prairie 'cuz EP is a more prestigious place, DID NOT build the model ship that is pictured here. We don't have photos of the ships he has built, but we can say with relative certainty that the model ships Steve has built are every bit as intricate and cool-looking as the one you see here.
How do we know, you ask?
Because Steve is a VERY smart guy who is good at stuff. If he does something, you can be sure that he did it real good.
What else do we know about Steve?...
