RE: Passport And Visa To Enter A Nightclub?

I regularly get asked to show my passport when going out in NYC (has happened on each trip there to date), but I rarely have it on my person so have often been denied entry. If, however, I have tickets to a gig or some such event, then I try to ensure I have it on me... and spend the whole night fee...

RE: Vancouver 2010 Olympics - Post-Olympic Withdrawal?

I often (and do) feel the same, although there's the World Cup to look forward to this year, which for me eclipses the Olympics. My worst case of Major Sporting Tournament Withdrawal (MSTW... ?) was after attending the Sydney Olympics in 2000. That was perhaps less because of Olympic sport itself an...

Best: Apple iPhone (resisted it for the longest time, didn't want to be a sheep, but adore the thing now), Panasonic Lumix TZ7 camera, trip to Alaska (oh Alaska, how I miss you). Worst: not sure, although I did buy various CDs throughout the year that I've listened to once and then promptly forgotten.
