Got a strange urge to be ripped off? Try this: For Sale: Acre Lots on Moon With Earth View, $19.99. Want to own a little piece of heaven? It's yours, starting at $19.99 an acre--on the moon. If you prefer, you can buy property on Venus or Mercury. Now considering they don't own the moon, or any part of it, that's about as blatant a ripoff as one can get! If you want to be ripped even further, you can pay to name a star. Of course, the star won't be given the name you choose, but hey, what do you want for a couple hundred dollars?
Saturday, Robb invited a long-time friend for lunch. We went to the Alibi (it used to be called Georgie's Alibi, but the owner sold it and allowed the new owner to use Alibi, but not Georgie's, although everyone still calls it Georgie's) where we attempted to sit on the patio. The music was so loud we had to shout at each other to be heard, so we moved inside. It was somewhat better, but the longer we were there, the louder it got. The waiter found it immensely funny that we are all named Robert (Robb's friend is named Roberta). Georgie's has very good snack foods, although we have gone there for dinner a few times. I had the Coconut Shrimp, Robb had the Veggie Burger, and Roberta had something that for the life of me I cannot remember.
