ARGH

My neck is killing me. It seemed like it was getting better the past few days but now it's just tightening up and it's driving me bonkers. I might have even twisted the other side somehow. Any ideas for remedies?

Gagh for the main course!

I just found the ultimate wedding setup in Las Vegas here. Super spiffy no? I'm thinking the next person on here to get hitched has to go and have the admiral's wedding and let the rest of us know how it goes. Will they really serve

Gagh

Willy Wonka kicks ass

Now this is going to be cool as hell. It's spiffy when companies actually are willing to make these big moves and take a risk now and then. I just recently watched willy wonka and the chocolate factory a week ago or so and aftr reading this, it makes me wanna go out and buy a packet of m&m's. If only the contest was running already. Bah, I never win anything though.


M&M's in black and white

Candy maker plans to eliminate colors temporarily during marketing contest.

NEW YORK (CNNfn) - In a marketing gimmick reminiscent of the gold ticket in "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," M&M's will run a contest in 2004 which will offer six grand prizes and for a brief period strip the world famous candy of its color.

M&M's plans to phase out color in 2004 - the "official" announcement will be made on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" on ABC - in what the company is calling the biggest transformation in its 60 year history. M&M's spokesman Jeffrey Moran said the New Year's Eve announcement is timed to "turn over a new leaf and start a new phase."

M&M's parent company Mars is privately held and therefore does not release sales figures, but overall chocolate sales have been flat in the last few years. Moran characterized M&M's sales as "stable," but added that the company is trying to gain market share.

The company will re-introduce color four to six months into the new year by running a contest in which six bags - out of the more than 100 million in retail stores - will contain colored M&M's. Each of the six will contain M&M's of the same color - one each for red, yellow, green, blue, brown and orange.

The purchasers of those bags will receive grand prizes - yet to be determined - and that "event" will trigger the re-introduction of color, but not necessarily the same color. The company spokesman would not elaborate.
