roundup

sumfin different today, hope the links work:

* Mcdonald’s just figured out that people are drinking bevs other than Coke, and is testing alternatives from coke’s competitors in some Texas outlets. (But don’t worry, they say; maybe if people come in to buy an iced tea, they’ll get a coke too!)
* Houlihan’s is coming back to Dallas, sez the Dallas Biz Journal. (Unfortunately, the CEO says the following: "it’s not your father’s Houlihan’s". a certain pompous, old-coot writer at the dallas morning snews uses that "it’s not your father’s blah-blah" cliche all-the-time. it's the ultimate in hackery. But I digress.) W/ this big "comeback" (snicker) Houlihan's will tout a "foodie-oriented menu": goat chz bruschetta, pan-seared tilapia, and mustard-encrusted salmon. whooHOO. & instedda golden oldies, the music'll be "indie sounds". (Not making this up) the D branch will be across from northpark.
* Whole Foods is trying to figure out humane ways to sell live lobster. by giving them little "condos". if that doesn’t work, they may stop selling them altogether. If you don't really give a shit about how horridly most supermarket chicken-pork-beef has been treated, then maybe you’ll respond to this: humane processing makes the food taste better.
* 1 cup of coffee a day cut the risk of cirrhosis by 20%, sez a study of more than 125K people. Four cups /day cut it by 80 %.

I like this. I like your regular items but this is a good change.

Trying to hit your blog hasn't been easy lately.

Goddammit. If I wasn't so addicted to coffee I could be an alcoholic.

I'd rather give up lobster than give up coffee. In fact, from here on out, no more lobster. Unless I'm in Maine where I hear they eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner, whether it lives in a condo or a town home or a trailer.

1 cup = 20%
4 cups = 80%
Why not just go for the whole, 100% cure, and have 5 cups a day?
