Hotel AOL, Keep Your Pants On, -and- Just Say No

Hotel AOL - man's frustrating attempt to cancel account
Keep Your Pants On - it's hard to run away in falling trousers
Just Say No - nude worm tempts World Cup fans

On this day in history: June 22, 1993

Dr. Charles Epstein of Tiburon, CA, is injured when he opens a padded manila package containing a surprise gift from the Unabomber.

The high temperature here yesterday was 101 degrees. It is forecast to be 103 today and progressively rise to a high of 112 degrees on Sunday. It was 79 degrees when I arrived at my office at 8:20 AM this morning.

Last evening, I made Cajun black beans and rice with chicken. It was most tasty. I sautéed sliced white onion and minced garlic in La Conda Ranch extra-virgin olive oil, added sliced Jalapeños, sliced red bell pepper, diced cluster tomatoes, sliced celery, shredded chicken breast (previously grilled), and Cajun seasoning. I simmered this for 90 minutes, added a can of S&W black beans, simmered another 30 minutes, added cooked rice, simmered another 10 minutes, and served. Laura scurried off to work this morning with the leftovers in tow for her lunch.
