Yeah, so I've heard, which is really kind of interesting when you think about it. Many included cocaine in them, and Coca-Cola wasn't the only one. It shows how much has changed.

Some of these are cracking me up!

I have neglected to let my mother know I know her forgotten FaceBook password. . .

I have two confessions:

1. When I log in to Trek BBS, I never wait to be redirected, I always click link to take me back to where I was.

2. I have 13 Michael Bolton songs on my phone.

You know what? I'm gonna go buy multi-coloured sticky notes tomorrow and set myself to the task of sorting out my library this weekend.

It will require some hard thinking, as some books have been in my possession so long, I don't even remember borrowing them...
Good to hear it! Good luck with the project. Also, another thing you can do independent of choosing a specific color of the sticky note. Write a circled "B" with a marker for "borrowed" then beneath that, the name of the person. Put it on the front page, sticking up just a little so it's noticeable when looking at the book.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

I have been ducking my in-laws for weeks. I have no desire to see them at ALL; I can barely keep my temper around those crazy, stupid fuckheads, so I always have a logical reason, which hubby buys (or at least pretends to), so I don't have to be around them.

Regarding in-laws: I realized, after my divorce I might add, that my in-laws were a bunch of haughty, stuffed shirts, more conscious about image than anything else.

The fact that I don't have a PhD from an Ivy League college and don't waste money just to have the newest and most expensive clothes, gadgets, tech, etc. turned my ex and them off.

Oh well, plenty of fish out there.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

^Yeah, sounds as if you're better off without them. My in-laws are pretty much the opposite, in that they dislike me because I have the audacity to be middle-class and educated, thereby despoiling their staunchly working class, socialist labour (I'm talking WAY out in left field) household. Shame on me.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

This happened a long, long time ago. I saved up $250 to upgrade my CPU, and took it to the counter. I was bs'ing with the clerk about something or other, wrote out a check, he bagged the chip, and I left. A few weeks after enjoying my rocking new 150Mhz CPU (yes, indeed), I noticed that the check wasn't cashed. I opened my checkbook, and was greeted by the check I had written for the CPU and never even took out of the book.

I wouldn't' do this today, but at the time I was like "pshhhh! Sucks to be them!"

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

My husband is very "careful" with the heating of the house. When he's away overnight for work I put it all on full blast. It's just awesome to have a beautifully warm house for a change. Also, he wants to eat healthily so bans the "bad stuff" from the house. I still buy all that stuff but I leave it at work.

^I once lived with someone who kept the house at freezing temperatures. Whenever they were gone I would crank it up HIGH and crank it down about an hour before they were due back.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

Reminds me of my youth: Dad would sit there in his open shirt and demand of us not to waste energy on higher indoor temperatures despite mum, sis and I wearing three layers and blankets and comforters and duvets...

Oh well, the seventies and their energy crises was a different era.

^ Sounds like your dad's body thermostat is set differently than the rest of the family's. You'd hate how cool I keep my house.

It took a couple of decades, but now it's the other way 'round at my parents place
