Sorry for getting off topic... re: Lutefisk I tried this one Christmas at my now-ex-boyfriend�s family's house. It wasn�t as bad as I thought. My mother�s family is from Newfoundland and salt cod is a traditional food there (it used to be the foundation of the whole economy of Newfoundland) so it reminds me of that quite a bit. Of course, the Newfoundland salt cod is not soaked in lye, so maybe that makes it a bit more palatable and less gelatinous than lutefisk. Salt cod is also popular in...

this isn't really bad behavior - but it's pretty funny. i was 8 or so and got mad at my mom - who knows for what - and said i was running away. i got my backpack, put a few things in it, and as i was walking out the door she said "here. you're going to get hungry." SHE'D PACKED ME A LUNCH! the thing was, to get anywhere, i would have had to cross a busy street, a street i was not allowed to cross alone. she knew i wouldn't do it. and she found me where she knew i'd be, about an hour later.

I send mine to SCOPE - I'm in the UK. They have sturdy plastic pre-addressed envelopes in their shops, if you're near one. All you have to do is put the cartridge in the envelope, seal it and post it. See:- Be a toner donor! They also say "All Ryman retail stores collect laser/toner cartridges." I didn't know that!

I've never met Paul in person and I've only been to one CH gig myself, but I've listened to so many fanclub cds and always loved his contribution to what was the Crowded House Live Experience. True Genius! I hope you are in a safe place now, Paul.

It's absolutely shocking news and I hope the Hester family can find some comfort in the great support they are sure to receive - we are the poorer for having lost him but infinitly richer for having known him.

I didn't hear the news until Monday night, a friend told me in the pub - with the Bank Holiday I hadn't listened to the radio or even read a paper. Totally surreal, I had enjoyed a couple of pints before I heard. We sank a few more in Paul's memory. People who didn't even know who Paul was raised their glasses, he was spoken of with such fondness, such appreciation, such love. Tuesday morning his death was mentioned on local radio - they played a snippet of DDIO - that's when it really hit.
