    Amy Lee, handcuffs? Metal, to boot? The visions won't go away. Gervase and the handcuffs. Was the comped meal any good? Would you go back? Would you ever stay at the Clarion again when it's completed?

    prhoshay and queenb: Send me the hot summer weather please! It's been in the 60's, rainy, windy and just cold. The sun is peeping out today, but it's supposed to rain again.

    Marleybone, Lucy, AJane: I am so jealous of all the outlet stores you have there and the fabulous prices! Mind you, I have no money for clothes these days so it's all good I guess.

    Amylee: That sounds like a very frustrating trip.

    myrosiedog: Please post a photo of those peach butt water tanks!

    snarkattack: I'm with you. I'm sooooooo done with Brittany, Paris, Lindsay, yada yada yada.

    I'm having my first coffee in days with leftover Tim Hortons strudel!

    Geez....we're at 20+ days of 90 and higher (and I know this may be minor compared to some areas)......I would gladly trade you weather....Summer can really suck! I actually would like to have it legislated away!!!!

    Answering beyond this point might incriminate me.


    Gervase and the handcuffs. (i'm still laughing at this)
    Oh, he and the 'cuffs are a non sequitur, didnt even meet.

    Was the comped meal any good? Would you go back? Would you ever stay at the Clarion again when it's completed?
    It probably wouldn've been good had i not had pizza prior. It was a nice Vegetable sandwich with fries on the side(i brought them home). I like the idea of AC in general, it's the unforeseen that bugs because that i cant control. The Clarion was a ways away from the casino's so unless it was the dead of night and i had no alternative, i'd stay there at the Egg Harbor Township Clarion.

    I think its important to be polite, but sometimes people can be pretty rude and they don't even realize it. For some reason, I seem like a magnet for people to talk to, but sometimes I just do what I want to do without the hassle. I think sometimes when someone starts talking I still engage, so it keeps them going that is part of my problem. But sometimes I do nothing and still get it.

    I went to the bank today and I asked for a withdraw of $66. Teller says why do you want such an odd amount?? Well, in truth I was going to pay my therapist, but I didn't really want to tell her.

    I really didn't know what to say and I am not the type of person to say none of your business, because she was truly just trying to be nice. I said I am getting a money order. She said well we have money orders here for free. I said I need a postal money order, because the person on ebay wants it that way. She said that's strange. I'm thinking what is strange is you asking me what I am taking the money out for. I mean after all you are a bank and I am sure you deal with odd amounts all day long. (sigh)

    Next:

    Another thing that happened that was even more rude, and this time I really could of said something, but I didn't. My doctor told me this was REALLY RUDE. I suffer with OCD and was buying a book on the subject, and when I am purchasing the book the lady that rings me up recommended a book on depression for me. All I said to her was hello and wanted to buy the book. I thought you got to be kidding. I said I have ocd and its for that. She said I have a friend who has ocd and she is down at the clinic. I was like okay.

    Then she says to me I don't know that many people with ocd and its great to have met me. I later went to the bookstore and I was going to buy a magazine, but I didn't want to because she was the only clerk ringing people up. I didn't want more comments on other things I read.

    Next:
    This one didn't bother me at all, but is kind of funny, because she was truly just making conversation. I was at chick-fil-lay I just wanted was an Iced Tea and the lady ringing me up says you look REALLY wet. I was wet. Well, I was very polite and said its pouring out. She says is it suppose to rain all day.?? I said I think so. She said "wow" I then wasn't being sarcastic, & said there is even lightining out. I said there are some flood warnings in the some of the southern counties. Im thinking Cleveland is not new to rain or snow. She then gets my tea and said sorry for the wait, but I poured a little too high. I was like "ok, thanks"

    I like being approachable but some days, I just think I am the wrong person in the shrinks office.

    That's very clever, misskitty!

    It doesn't make any sense, but people began using the phrase to reference an episode of "Happy Days." Fonzie--wearing trunks and his leather jacket--literally jumped a shark while on waterskis. For many viewers, that's when the quality of "Happy Days" began its quick descent!

    oh wow... muscle relaxers knock me out! I sprained my back somehow on friday, and I went to the doctor's yesterday, and they gave me muscle relaxers and vicodin. I only took a muscle relaxer, and I took a lovely 5 hour nap Getting home from the hospital at 3 am probably helped that in some way though....

    (hilarious story I received in my email today!)

    The Bathing Suit

    Get ready for a good laugh. Women can really relate. Men, print this for your wife to read.

    When I was a child in the 1960s the bathing suit for the mature figure was boned, trussed and reinforced, not so much sewn as engineered.

    They were built to hold back and uplift and they did a good job. Today's stretch fabrics are designed for the prepubescent girl with a figure carved from a potato chip.

    The mature woman has a choice-she can either go up front to the maternity department and try on a floral suit with a skirt, coming away looking like a hippopotamus who escaped from Disney's Fantasia or she can wander around every run of the mill department store trying to make a sensible choice from what amounts to a designer range of florescent rubber bands.

    What choice did I have? I wandered around, made my sensible choice and entered the chamber of horrors known as the fitting room.

    The first thing I noticed was the extraordinary tensile strength of the stretch material. The Lycra used in bathing costumes was developed, I believe, by NASA to launch small rockets from a slingshot, which give the added bonus that if you manage to actually lever yourself into one, you are protected from shark attacks as any shark taking a swipe at your passing midriff would immediately suffer whiplash. I fought my way into the bathing suit, but as I twanged the shoulder strap in place, I gasped in horror-my boobs had disappeared!

    Eventually, I found one boob cowering under my left armpit. It took a while to find the other. At last, I located it flattened beside my seventh rib.

    The problem is that modern bathing suits have no bra cups. The mature woman is meant to wear her boobs spread across her chest like a speed bump. I realigned my speed bump and lurched toward the mirror to take a full view assessment.

    The bathing suit fit all right, but unfortunately it only fit those bits of me willing to stay inside it. The rest of me oozed out rebelliously from top, bottom, and sides. I looked like a lump of play dough wearing undersized cling wrap.

    As I tried to work out where all those extra bits had come from, the prepubescent sales girl popped her head through the curtain, "Oh, there you are", she said, admiring the bathing suit.

    I replied that I wasn't so sure and asked what else she had to show me. I tried on a cream crinkled one that made me look like a lump of masking tape, and a floral two piece which gave the appearance of an oversized napkin in a serving ring.

    I struggled into a pair of leopard skin bathers with ragged frills and came out looking like Tarzan's Jane, pregnant with triplets and having a rough day.

    I tried on a black number with a midriff and looked like a jellyfish in mourning.

    I tried on a bright pink pair with such a high cut leg I thought I would have to wax my eyebrows to wear them.

    Finally, I found a suit that fit...a two-piece affair with a shorts style bottom and a loose blouse-type top.

    It was cheap, comfortable, and bulge-friendly, so I bought it. My ridiculous search had a successful outcome, I figured. When I got home, I found a label which read -- "Material might become transparent in water."

    So, if you happen to be on the beach or near any other body of water this year and I'm there too ... I'll be the one in cut off jeans and a t-shirt!

    snarkattack: Wow. That bookstore clerk should mind her own business. Look up The Law of Attraction or The Secret. That might help you break this run of rude people!

    LoisLane: Thanks for the explanation! It makes a bit more sense now.

    SuperBrat: I hope you feel better soon!

    bbnbama: I just had that experience trying to get something to wear earlier this summer at my sweeties neighborhood lake! I'm not so comfortable in a bikini these days. I ended up with a pair of men's swim shorts (bright colored and comfy) and a matching women's swim tank top from the sales mismatch rack! Worked great! I've done the t-shirt and shorts thing but the hold a lot of water.

    That was hilarious

    Reminds me of the time my sister excitedly showed me the new suit she had bought that day. She proudly showed me the tag which claimed that the suit would make you look 5 pounds thinner. She truely looked confused when I asked "what if you wear two suits....will it make you look 10 pounds thinner?"
