coming up

Deepaavalii weekend. The end of Daylight Saving Time. A little Octoberfest at the workplace today -- the days building up to this have taught me a new word, bratwurst: the name is a compound German word meaning "fried sausage". Essentially, this is a fancier nominal wrapper to a larger version of a hot dog. There's more information on sausages (aka stuff that will make your stomach churn!). Reminds me of another popular Americanism, tailgating, popular during the football games (another excuse for guzzling beer, which seems like the #1 American pastime).

On a very very unrelated note, simply based on a fragment of conversation at work that went "...exploding manhole covers" (why they would talk about stuff like this is beyond me!), here's how that stuff works!
