CAUSE COFFEE--I thought I'd posted "cause coffee" before on ADS-L, but I don't see it in the archives.  It's in my e-mail in Badgett's Coffe Journal:

MALAY PICKLE--This is not in the revised OED.  It's all over Sri Lanka.  A quick "Malay pickle" google shows several Sri Lanka sites such as this one:

BANANA FRITTER--What a tremendous buffet here, with this dessert offered.  Called "donkeyo" here or something like that, but I didn't see it at in the Sri Lanka dessert section.

SNOWSTORM HITS EAST COAST--The weather here is perfect.  There are three pools here in at the Kandalama Hotel, a five-star hotel.  Boy, to think that I coulda been back in New York...My fellow tourists have been whining about staying at good hotels, saying how much better it is to stay in some roach-infested place with no running water. to be "nearer to the people."  Nah...I've been in bad hotels and good hotels, and good hotels are better.

CHESS IN SRI LANKA--I forgot to mention it, but an early chess piece was an elephant.  This is why Sri Lanka would be a better fit for the board game than China...I see just now that my old friend, Sneaky Slimy Sammy Sloan as we used to call him, put my e-mail to him on Google Groups.  Oy.
