    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I had a first today... I answered the phone and a home security telemarketer started in with her spiel. I interupted and said, "Your company has called me many times before and I wish you would stop. I'm not interested. Thank you." and I hung up. A minute later the phone rang again and the same lady said in a snippy voice, "I was going to say, before you hung up on me..." I interrupted again and said, "DO NOT CALL ME AGAIN!" and hung up. What the heck? Heckled by a telemarketer! And I really was that polite the first time - I'm not cleaning it up to make myself look good.
    Count your blessings!

    Gut -are you on the "do not call" list? We registered a long time ago with the FCC (I think it was) including our home and cell numbers. They are eligible for a nice fat fine. You cannot be solicited by someone with whom you've had no previous business relationship. I know charities and a few other categories are exempt. Try the FCC website....

    I would not wear a fragrance that smells like carrots.

    For one, it makes me think of the joke "What's invisible and smells like carrot?", "Bunny farts". I don't want people to think I'm hanging out with an invisible rabbit.

    Second, it reminds me of a story my dad told me. One of his co-workers went on a health food diet and the secretary at his office commented to my dad that the guy smelled like potting soil. I think if I smelled like carrot, people would have the same aversion to me, thinking I was one of those extreme health nuts.

    Third, I prefer to wear a scent that's appealing to the opposite sex but not food-related. I don't want them to get confused and try to take a bite out of me. So no cheese scented perfumes, eau du porterhouse steak, or chocolate chip cookie body spray.

    You might want to re-think that - scientific studies have found that pumpkin pie spice has the most potent "stimulant" effect on men.

    Fine, I'll make a pumpkin pie for him on our date. I'm still not going to slather it on my body!





    Although, maybe this is the reason why I'm 40 and still single.

    You don't have to slather it all over - get the mixed spice and dust it behind your ears.

    About girls and math, there's a book called Reviving Ophelia by, I think, Mary Pipher, that talks about the changes in girls at adolescence, both in academics and in self-image. It came out several years ago. Really insightful about why things change so much for girls right around their early teens.
    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    I just had to copy this post from a weight loss surgery forum for Gutmutter, and I realize it's been a few days, but wanted to show that your mother isn't the only hard head out there I thought of you instantly when I saw this.

    **********My mom is coming for a visit this weekend from out of town, and she is planning to make a huge pot of home made soup for my husband. (mom's soup is always better than mine lol Is it too soon for me to have some? I was told by my surgeon on last visit 6/5/11 NO CORN. I told my mom this and she told me to pick it out.********
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Strange. I would have sworn the most potent scent would be bacon.
