We went to Chipotle for dinner tonight with our youngest four kids ... behind us in line was a guy wearing a breast cancer awareness shirt, you know, with a pink ribbon on it. Well, the words on the shirt said, "Save the boobies." :lol: Our 14 year old daughter was totally cracking up! Funny shirt.

That actually sounds like a very good use for wheat! :lol: :lol:

:lol: Yea--I've seen that. Can you imagine the kitties scratching around in there, like they love to do, and then proceeding to walk on every surface in the house--as they also love to do!

Yep--I'd gasp and run the other way, too :D ;)

Greetings sillies - back from my Turkish adventures!! :)

Allow me to elaborate somewhat on my experience with the lushes of London (that would make a good band name, now wouldn't it?). Something considered SO ordinary, SO acceptable in downtown London (Nikki, I'm dying to hear you on this one) and something we saw every night as we wandered through the Theatre District and Trafalgar Square: at about six o'clock, the restaurants and bars are overspilled out onto the streets with staggering young professionals (6 pm!). By 8 pm, we notice these large, fibreglass things being unfolded and set up every few blocks. I thought they were barricades of some kind. But no...by ten o'clock, we see five, six inebriated blokes crowding around these things and peeing into what was obviously a portable reservoir in the centre. An hour later, men and women were finding their way there to deposit some vomit, as well. Wow. Then, by two am (my estimate), they are dismantled. This is quite a measure by the city to keep things clean. And propogate some unbelievable behavior. Exactly the opposite feel in Paris. I guess I'm just an unworldly Canadian who was very due to see the real world! :o


:o :huh: :huh: :huh:
Ok, I don't often go uptown but WTH is that all about - how disgusting!!!!! :unsure: ......I shall investigate......



While we're on the topic of body parts, I can do some neat tying in with my time in Europe. The English, while often drunkards, have got some stupendous vocabulary for these things. I love what the Brits do with our language, and here is no exception. Their expressions that refer to the male...part...are fantastic. My dh's old great aunt, who we visited in her little cottage in Winchester, educated me on the different ways to speak of...this. My favorite is "Horizontal Henry", followed by "Negligible Asset" and "Horn o'plenty". She had an entire dictionary of them, it seemed. What a lady...we just don't hear great stuff like that over here. :lol: :lol:


Horizontal Henry?? ... :lol: ......never called it that before!!
What it's known as in these parts is probably too crude for this thread .......and yes....there are alot of drunks in England! :lol:


Did I see Steve some pages back???
..and Jestgar has (Meth) kitties!!!!!!!.....WANT ONE
Oh..and 34B here and no-ones looking ;)

Well, gfp, you'll have plenty of readily accessible spots to urinate and throw up, should the need arise. :blink: Nikki, we were staying right in Trafalgar Square, and these lovely city constructions were put up every couple of blocks, right into the theatre district. I wish I'd taken a pic of them in use, but I must have been too shocked to think of it...

Not new, but entertaining nonetheless.

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on
nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those
conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION

Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Bev!! Good stuff! :lol:

Yeah Emily, I wondered what's happened too! :(
Only ~ a page added in a week & a 1/2? That's not right I tell ya!! :angry:


Nikki's back!!
But no telling of Turkish tales?
C'mon - throw us a bone. What was coolest or weirdest or anything-est thing about the trip?



OMG - - limpid pools and maudlin regret and ogling of the assets...and no time to address any of it!

Still?


the regret over the lost years......that does take a while to process, but somehow, it did work itself out, and the grief is gone for me now. More on this later - - -

Promises, promises . . . . .
