Titanic Nominations
1. Worst Toilet Seoul. It was essentially a trough. For women!  You straddled it – it was pretty low – and tried to miss your underwear. I thought it couldn’t get any worse until the old lady behind me rested her elbow on my back for support.
2. Worst Meal Rome, no joke. It was like microwaved Chef Boyardee. That’s what you get for eating right on Piazza Navona.
3. Worst Airline Cubana, Yucatan to Havana. All the overheard bins flew open. Some of the seats came loose. And the flight crew – like 8 of them for a 22-seater – kept coming in and out of the cockpit like it was a swingers party in there.
4. Worst Boat Ride Punta Arenas to Isla Magdelena (a.k.a. Penguin Island). The “45-minute” boat ride took 3 hours. The rough waters of the Strait of Magellan are like a spin cycle. Then when you get there, it reeks of penguin poo.
5. Worst Cocktail Lucky Cheng’s in NYC. Total tourist trap (I went with tourists). The “Orgasm in a Bowl” is sticky sweet, Windex-blue and tastes like melted Mr. Freezes spiked with cheap bathtub rum.

    Pastry brush I picked 1 up for a $1 at target and have been hooked ever since I employ it for everything it seems. It�s great for spreading the marinades about meat evenly, placing olive oil about bread or homemade pizza so you receive that golden crisis and even for its original use pastries!

    At this time it appears like Wordpress is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

    Activity�� This one is fairly simple and most of us perform it in our daily lives. It is subjected to performing something that relieves the mind from the pressure whether it is personal, related to work or any other endeavors.
