Loc: Louisville, Kentucky
Oh my gosh, you-all---these have had me laughing out loud!
Keeping abreast of things in the bra industry!
Names of funeral homes and cemeteries--wonderful! "Our Lord of Good Health" CEMETERY??? Not to insult your translation capabilities, Marianna, but. That one is simply unbelievable!
Pathetic View motel, indeed, and Bangs' Body Shop? HA!

The Reste (accent aigu on the secone "e") Motel used to be (maybe still is) found on route 95 in southern Virginia.

WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE AHEAD: I believe there was a short story the basis of which a funeral home next to a delicatessen.

I can't believe that I forgot this the other day, but Selma Alabama has a Funeral Home called 'Dunn Funeral Home'.
Laughter is all around us...

I'm no longer a stranger!!!!!!! Newbie is pretty cool. Makes me think of the nerdie kids on Sixteen Candles that wore the caving lights on their heads to a party. Anyone else remember that?
I hope to be an addict one day.

May I assume ChemEng1992 has been duly informed of the usual $50 charge now due from her (to defray expenses of the board), upon her promotion?
#39773 - 08/31/01 02:49 PM Re: Graduation!
Congrats, Chemeng, on your becoming. But: you're a newbie engineer and you are calling kids with lights nerdies?
What is the hierarchy for nerds, dorks, dweebs, duffises, geeks, and such? Anybody know?
#39774 - 08/31/01 03:17 PM Re: Graduation!
Sparteye, I'd be careful with the engineer comments since the term 'old' comes up whenever you post.

Loc: Rio Grande, Cape May County, N...
Motel the Tailor, the character in "Fiddler on the Roof" who I portrayed twice on stage, 20 years apart. (I never looked my age ). Motel in this case is pronounced "muttle".
Congrats on your new newbie, Chemeng! But enjoy it while it lasts. You know what they say, "first you're a newbie, then you're an addict." Where does the time go?
And speaking of odd names...we once had a doctor in this area named Dr. Kill! I'm not making this up...and his practice never really got off the ground. I wonder why? Hope he changed his name wherever he set-up again! Sheesh! Dr. Bill's gotta be howling at this one!

.we once had a doctor in this area named Dr. Kill!
I mentioned this on another thread some time back, but it fits here too: In Oregon City, Oregon some years ago, Dr. Chitty was in practice with Dr Bangs. Now if only their kids had joined them they would have had the Chitty Chitty Bangs Bangs Clinic. Also, I know a surgeon named Dr Cutter. And in Vancouver, Washington, there's a psychiatrist named Dr Mecouch. Very Freudian, eh?
