anagram: aspirant. I don't ask for much, just a new exhaust pipe and a bike rack and new shoes and better weather. Honest.

A French baguette, JD? Sacre bleu!

Pia, I'm sorry about that.

It happens, TLP. I'm sure Ramses ghost understands.

Howdy, Mo'a.

Nessa, I think that's a sushi bar but I hope the meal meets your expectations regardless.

Not a noun, Quilly?

That's alright, Jim. That happens to me sitting still.

Haha, Mule. As best I can recall.

I though Limbaugh was Shinto, Amoeba.

Nifty Latin, Sauerkraut.

The party promises all that, Actonbell.

I find this word interesting because it usually means a fervent adherent of a party, but when applied to rebellious paramilitary troops it means the opposite, though if they succeed they will usually become a version of the thing they were against.
