I will NEVER understand how people can throw waste into nature while going for a stroll or even hiking. Never never never. This mindlessness simply CAN'T be excisting but it is, I don't get it.

I will never understand this fascination with cheese. People put cheese on everything I order from a restaurant. E Pluribus Gad, people! Cheese was invented to keep the tomato paste from sliding off the pizza. It serves no other purpose!

So I've heard. And how are the gods doing these days? I'm seeing a very real cause-and-effect here.

Haha, that's great. They're doing wonderful I must say. Why, just the other day I was blessed with the most amazing blue cheese and bacon burger. Ahhh great stuff.

Sorry for your lactose intolerance! (There's someone else around here who's also lactase(-), I forget who.)

One of our favorite pizzas (that we make ourselves) is: sliced plum tomatoes INSTEAD of sauce, fresh basil, and Brie cheese. Yummy.

Ok, on topic: I fail to understand how someone, looking at the login name "sfuess" could possibly imagine that that login belonged to me, when there's another person in the group named Sally Fuess.

I'll never understand most of the films heralded in the news as "The Number One Movie in America!!!!!!!!!"

Not that I'd actually want to, of course. . .

Speaking of live theater...

a) I'll never understand why the drama teacher at my high school started a new classical theater group (which I of course joined) the day before rehearsals started for the school play (which I am not involved with), thereby eliminating any opportunity for the classical theater group to actually meet between now and January.

b) I'll never understand why Hamlet is performed three thousand times a year while Cymbeline is ignored completely. *GEEK*

c) I'll never understand why I just tried to write "Hamelt" instead of "Hamlet." Sounds like a new sandwich at Denny's, doesn't it?

And if MacDonald's instead of Denny's served it, it would be the sandwich we're not allowed to say aloud. . .

There's a theater tradition that says Shakespeare's play Macbeth is cursed, and that you will bring down disaster on yourself (or your production of the show) if you say its name, specifically within a theatrical setting.
