    Don't do it. The doll will only end up dragging 'Joy' down to her level.

    ...ask brittney...

    I'll let you in on something: d'ya know why Paris Hilton doesn't do it 'doggy-style'?

    'Cause they can't find a dog that'll do it with her.

    dang, i thought of you as older, too.

    online personalities are so hard to judge, though. And it's very difficult to judge age, especially if some adults write in chat-speak and some juniors write educated and spell out their words, etc.

    I don't use chat-speak because I feel like I have to translate it into normal English. Why should you need to translate your own language?

    sorry for the ramble. I tend to do that.

    I get to go to lab today. Yet another day I put off going to the PO. Decided not to cause of lab. Wanted a little "me time". I'll do it Thursday morning, however.

    In this thread everyone is the same age, no worries. I'll even contribute to the delinquency of a minor (a term used in bars quite frequently) and turn my back from the bar occassionally. Besides, someone has to do bathroom checks to make sure no one has fallen in for two days (yeah, a different poster knows what I'm referring to). ;)

    Oh no - I wait for Dedan's response with both hesitation and anticipation. lol.

    Cafe people, I need a soap box. CC - pls toss me the one to your left? Thanks.

    If Sharapova wins this match (she's playing Chakvatadze now, and no, there's no spoiler here), save for watching Federer, I've almost decided I'm not watching tennis for the forseeable future.

    I'm sick of watching larger players survive purely due to physical gifts. Sick of watching naturally gifted athletes beat shorter, struggling players. I've had enough. Murray simply ran out of gas against Nadal, he played a much better match (that may change in the future, but still). Screamapova survives 90% based entirely on her serve, as do many other players. If poor Camille Pin wasn't 2 foot 3, she would have won the very first round. Serena, an arrogant woman with the work ethic of a lazy brick, should have lost a bunch of the last matches if only she wasn't physically gifted.

    Sick of it. I also don't know why most of the above - naturally gifted athletes, naturally talented players, feel the need to play games, to scream, to cheat, to take dodgy time-outs, and why they get away with it all too. If you're naturally luckier, better, bigger... why not take a leaf out of Fed's book and play fairly?
    [/WHINGE]

    Now - could I please have a Vodka/Lime/Soda? Actually - maybe just a double-shot of Stoli on the rocks? ;)

    I'm 6 foot 2.5 inches, so I am too.

    But I watch pro to see challenge and fight, and all I see is players beating up on others due to natural gifts. It's not their fault, I know that, but I'm almost at the point of hunting for a more neutral sport to watch and support.

    Hell, many 'games' like Chess, Darts, Snooker - all are much less based on natural physical attributes than sports like tennis. Maybe it's time to support a neutral car-racing format for me, like A1GP.

    I don't know, but as much as I love playing it, I'm almost sick to death of watching it.

    Adopted son ;). I must have left the Bistro right after I posted, I just saw your post now. Headaches come and go, other than that I am doing okay. Not great, just okay.

    Prince Triple Threat Warrior. When I play, and I haven't played since last year.

    He loves to hear that from the ladies (but don't tell his wife)

    Why thank you, he needs a good male influence. Or just a male influence. ;)

    It works fine for me, but I suck at tennis so who am I to give racquet advice? My coach was a Prince guy at the time I got it, so the price was GREAT ($100). I pretend to be a serve and volley player, so it works for me at the net (most of the time). Next time I hit with it, I'll give you a better review.

    Hey Fee, I knew I was too late by the time I posted - and I do stand corrected - "adopted" son. ;)

    Hey Voltron, what kind of mischief have you been up to since last night?? Any posters in need of the assistance of the good guys gang?

    Haven't seen any Trolls recently, and I think SS is gone for good unfortunately, so sad. :(

    I hope to see a review Fee, have you noticed I like reviews?

    Nope Voltron, he'll be back. He does this occassionally when his feelings are hurt. He'll be back in a week or two.

    So sad? Hmmmm. If you're really missing him I could always just find some negative press about a quasi-gay-related-issue once each day and post a thread about it with an ambiguous title?

    Superstition, and SER is the full name. SER used to be a troll but we got him over to the good side. So far he's been real good, and TTW decided against banning him because of it.

    I don't think he's gone for good. Everyone needs a break from this place once in a while. I left for almost two months once, as did Rabbit and Dedans.

    There are reviews of the TT Warrior on the TW site that are better than I could write (and most of them proved to be true for me too). Perhaps I'll try to write one for you next time I play, whenever that will be.

    Of course he is, SER was trying to use SS in a subtle way to satisfy his 'curiosity.' He'll just have to explore the internet on his to find those answers...

    HEY! I also helped you with sunscreen, I just used far less technical language.

    I'm rolling over to MTf to catch up on my reading there. Back in a few hours (after dinner and such).

    Drakkie you may have an ice cold Carlsbad (on V's tab) shhhhh. Why do you insist on hurting me this way? Was I not always kind and accommodating to my favourite Yoda? Tell me please, what do I need to do to get that avatar changed? I offered you free drinks for a month, I sweet-talked you, I complimented you, we were all "punished" with an extended stay of the vomit queen. What will it take to make you change it??? Pretty please (a clump of bananas would be great). :)

    By the way, the spider monkey continues to quote me. Now, since I made fun of him, he is not quoting me, rather paraphrasing some posts I made. LOL

    Drakulie I am a troll now. That's the very first time I've been called one - I do believe I'll wear it as a badge of honour. Can I have a cookie please?

    Did I ever tell you, my fellow patrons about the time some guy came up to me and offered to introduce me to a couple of hookers that wanted to use me as a prop?

    So there I was standing by a vending machine as innocently as a guy can with a dollar in his hand as this guy walks up to me, he says that he has noticed my "nice strong" legs. The man continues to tell me that with my legs and large strong shoulders I would make a great prop...for hookers, to hold them up. I think it was the look in my eyes, a cross between terror and curiosity that signaled him to further explain. I was either incredibly relieved or disappointed to find out that it was about Rugby.

    I never said you didn't, you helped, and confused me far less that he did. Overall though, you two helped a ton, and for that I am grateful.

    Apparently in Rugby Hookers are kickers of some kind, and two props are needed to stand on one side and the other of the Hooker to prop him up.

    Err, not quite. To be honest, i'm not a union fan, but I know enough to know that one sounded slightly wrong. It's support in the scrum, not in kicking.

    What you have to understand is when I start having to describe contact sports, I turn into a stereo type woman that just doesn't get it.
