    Normally crying chicks aren’t my thing, but I think I could make an exception here.

    This is a parody of the “I love cats” eHarmony video (which itself was a put on). But yeah… bacon.

    My husband would divorce me for this woman if she were real. I mean I love bacon, but I don’t get as emotional about it as he (and she does). (weep) perhaps I am not his soul-mate after all. I’m sorry! I promised myself I wouldn’t do this…(sob)

    It’s just that he wants bacon with EVERY meal…and I (sob) am fine with having it once a day, possibly twice if there is a BLT involved.

    How can I believe that he will ever truly love me knowing that SHE is out there??!?!?!?!

    Why else would he head back to ole Virginia? It wasn’t just to tell his tale to his nephew. Actually, the backstrap of a thoat tastes a bit like bacon, but my prince gets homesick for the real thing.

    I bought my darling bride a Nook “Simple” eReader (w/WiFi) this past weekend (to replace her Sony Reader), and the first purchase was the complete works of Edgar Rice Burroughs …she’s never read Burroughs, and never heard of the Barsoom stuff. She.Is.Delighted. We have another fan! Yaay.

    And after an inquiry from her, I also “discovered” that Disney is working on a John Carter of Mars flic, due for release next Spring.

    …and in the FWIW department. The Nook Simple is THE eReader. I already like it considerably more than my Kindle 3. Smaller (the E-ink screen is the same), lighter, it has a lovely touch screen (with no appreciable decrease in screen quality) – if you’re an iPhone or Android [touch screen] user, you’ll have no problem with the UI – and it is a higher build quality than the K3.

    Very nice.

      I already have a Nook Color…so GMTA and all that! Actually, my introduction to John Carter of Mars was via Heinlein years ago, and it was only in the past couple of years that I decided to read the entire ERB series. I bought them all used online (before I had my Nook), and devoured them faster than my husband goes through a pound of bacon.

      I fear for the integrity of the movie that you speak of. Apparently, they have removed the “of Mars” from the movie title, supposedly out of fear of audience assumptions. Plus, I have no idea how they are going to make a movie with every one naked. That many swinging cods are gonna make the movie sensors break out in hives, even if there is nothing but the most chivalrous and gallant of interactions between the characters. It would truly be divine if they would stick to the book, but one could say that about all the SF movie travesties: Starship Troopers, Hitchhiker’s Guide, I, Robot, etc.*

      *Yes, that list is incomplete, but it occurred to me that it could take me hours to complete that list, and whatever point I might be trying to make would have been lost in debate over the merits of various movies and whether to include other fiction genres.

    I dunno why it keeps tagging your comments…could be worse, we could be up to our asses in Chinese spam.
