priceless

as i was getting ready this morning, i looked out of my
front living room window and could
see the silhouette of mt. st. helen's.
now, how cool is that?
we ordered in dinner last night from P backwards K.
tom kah rocks which is
coconut milk soup with lemon grass, galanga root,
kaffir lime leaves and mushrooms.
2.5 out of 5 was all the spice we could take!

"Write your little brother a letter" is a comment. I've always thought that dying in a pyroclastic flow would be a good way to go -- especially if I was permanently frozen in time. Ideally, I'd want to see it coming and be brave. Man, would that be an amazing sight to see.

dying. where, what, eh? did that come from, crouton? oh... snap, i get it, from that mushy crap i cut and pasted a few comments back. personally, i would like for it to be short and sweet. i have to be brave everyday i'm alive. i'd like to think i'd get a break at the end. but sure, i'll watch it happen to you... ;)

i'm totally frothing at the mouth -word of the day, pyroclastic flow - http://www.answers.com/topic/pyroclastic, have you seen the plume over mt. st. helen. its a active!

more: the word pyroclast is derived from the greek πῦρ, meaning fire, and κλαστός, meaning broken. another name for a pyroclastic flow is a nuée ardente (french for "burning cloud"). love it, die by burning cloud!

Dude, burning clouds are awesome! I've always been fascinated with volcanoes, so pyroclastic flows are right down my alley. Okay, I'm done for the day. Got a hearing tomorrow, so wish me luck.
