John wonders about up-talk greetings, and Merlin confesses to some recent situational imbibing.
Follow-up addresses the "Too-Rye-Ay" question, the enumeration of pasta shapes, and how many kinds of beetles there actually are. Tangents include celebrity biographies, Adam and the Ants video casting, Alta Vista search operators, and the actresses that Merlin collects.
The main topic concerns Merlin's recent turn as Mr. Mom.
