Because I had a good time on vacation, I only added one soft ball of a topic to your list. I had a couple other options, but when you have spent the week in a pop-up camper (yay for A/C!) near one of the best beaches in the country (per Dr Beach. I trust him, he's a doctor!), you tend to walk away with a good attitude. Except toward bugs. Those muthas can die.
Those mothras can also die!
The topic thread (with the #6 topic) is located: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/574285.html
and the work room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/574652.html is right along with it.
Don't forgot the Home Game (or the Motor City) http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/575725.html and all you'd need is music, sweet music, there is music everywhere...
