  1. oooh, I get to be the first to comment on this episode :)


    …I mean, not for being the first to comment, but for you being here. I attribute a lot of my mental prep for my surgery to you guys!

    will definitely be checking out the pouch friendly recipe sites, am looking forward to my next stage (eating) in a couple weeks.

    Oh, and my tummy is rumbling out a “thank you” too!

    From Danielle’s biggest fan – “SPECIAL GUEST STAR! WOOHOO!”

    Hostess twinkie with a YooHoo chaser – ah, the memories!

    And one more thing – what’s up with the comments? Did we get spammed or something? It looks like English, but it’s total gibberish!

    WOOOHOOO!!!! KATE!!!! I’m so glad to see ya back here Dear. It sounds like your surgery went off without a hitch. Well minus the hotel drama. And from your post in the forum it sound like you’ve been relatively pain free. How very cool!

    Okay, now you know this means more updates in the forum to keep us all informed of how your doing, and pictures!! as you move along your journey we want pictures!!

    Congrats and a big hug your way!

    Hey T2,

    Yep, it was the dreaded spammers that got us once again. They’re like vampires that only come out at night when the rest of the world is sleeping. They descend on unsuspecting web hosts and suck the bandwidth out of them.

    This means it’ll be especially noticeable to those of you living over on the right cost that get up 3 hours earlier than we do. You get the freshest spam before we get a chance to take it off the burner.


  5. Hey T2 — Yes.. we were spammed.. I deleted them all..

    Dang Spammers!

  6. We updated the website software and some default settings were changed. sorry.

  7. I’m back!!!

    Dang computer crashes, but I now have a brand new one, so I’m baccckkk!!!!!

    Great show, once again! Gawd, I’ve missed you!

    Have a nice day!

  8. Welcome back Scott…You were sorely missed!!


  9. Hey Scott,

    Welcome back amigo. Don’t you just hate it when the computer dies? How did we ever manage before the days of the Interweb??

    Glad your back!


  10. Make that a big welcome back from all three of us! :-) Computers.. interwebs.. cell phones.. plasmas… geez… How did I ever live back in the day before remote controlled TVs and wireless phones?

  11. ROTFLMAO…I won’t spoil it too much for the rest who haven’t seen this week’s episode yet, (I see it on itunes Thursday nights after it is uploaded) but wow I’ve never seen the ladies look um..hairyer. Ew. lol..
