department at Google might *still* have the occasional Friday e-roast.
I gotta set my sights a little higher, all I've ever gotten were a few steak
BBQs and a couple of cheap beers. We haven't had a good e-roast up here in
Vermont since they got rid of the Mammoths.
Would you drink Syrah or Pinot Noir with elephant?
