No writeup this week, Drew was up half the night in Las Vegas at his combined birthday party/Fark party/Super Bowl party. He'll probably be back after the hangover subsides.

Until then, here are some of the better headlines from last week:

Headlines Of The Week for Sun 2010-01-31 to Sat 2010-02-06:  Scientists find that overeating is as addictive as cocaine.

Everyone was in fine form this week!

Hey, speaking of recovery from last night:

Drew: sorry I was so late. I was wondering what brand you brought them, since I missed it. I've never tried to order a whiskey they haven't had, so I just assumed they had every brand that has ever existed (and a few that don't).

Wow, re-reading that didn't make it make any more sense than it already made. Stupid Mondays.
