Hello crew,

I was writing in response to your episode 78. The reason people use color hangers if for easier categorizing.
Just like people use different color folder when filing or using different color tabs when marking something in outlook.

There is no illness that is directly tied to the act. (That is what the 7 voices in my head say.)

A new site just popped up that I read about on MSN, it’s a nifty little single serving website with a simple idea that just works.

I couldn’t believe it when I heard you comment on the skin eating fish! On a recent trip to Japan my best friend was taken to one of these pools by her friend in what I had previously assumed was an iconic Japanese thing. I ran right over to her and made her tell me all about it again. She said it was almost indescribable but I made her so here it what she said: Apparently it’s pretty uncomfortable.
It wasn’t painful but tickled too the point of discomfort like being scratched. Apparently it’s popular for women to go in groups and get this treatment to shoot the breeze. There was a sign saying it was an ancient Turkish tradition.

She still has all her toenails.

Hi Gadgettes,

I loved episode #78, but I do have one complaint. Kelly implied (well, more like stated) that anyone who has an iPhone is a show off. I totally disagree. My partner has an iPhone. He lives in a rural area where AT&T is his only available cell provider. Being AT&T, they have great business phones, but fairly lousy consumer phones, especially if you want a phone with data access. The iPhone was really his only available option to have data access on a consumer phone in the AT&T network without it totally sucking or without getting a business phone like a crackberry. He is so NOT a show off.

Now, on the other hand, I have an iPod Touch, and that’s totally about showing off. LOI.

Otherwise, great show.

Joe
