Great velcro factoid … and that’s one heck of a pizza slice …. I’ve already forgot the closing word.
Yeah, that’s my kind of pizza 🙂
GRRR! The velcro thing is bugging me to no end. Mind verifying your source on that one? I do see online rumors about it, but according to NASA…..
Hey, come on, do you REALLY think NASA is going to tell you everything?

Welcome to my world – it’s great in here 🙂

Excellent. Timing is everything 🙂
Man, have I got that lexiconic …. lethargic … leprotic … that word thing going on! Though I think your pizza “area” might be short an acre or two, considering it’s (yes, I’m not kidding) pizza for dinner. 😀
I’m jealous, I love pizza!
I tell ya, anybody who’d ever tell me they don’t, I wouldn’t trust ’em for a SECOND!
