Say It. I Dare You.

The original name of the company was "Zayre Gut," which means "very good" in Yiddish. Not having enough money to pay for a sign that included both words, ownership instead installed the first word "ZAYRE" to the front of their building with the intentions of adding the "GUT" later. However, the company became branded as "ZAYRE" and the owners feared that adding the second half of the name might confuse customers.

They should have feared that addding the second half would FREAK customers OUT.

"goin' to Zayre Guts"

hmmm. "I hate your Zayre guts!!!" Does sound a little nicer than just the standard "I hate your guts!"
Maybe the name would have caught on.

We used to have a department store called 3D or something like that. anyone remember that? I used to go there all the time when I was kid because it was like a block from my house and they had big lollypops and ac.
oh my WORD!!!

Yagotta, I'm DYING over here!! That's the freakin' same ones I had!!! I yelled out loud when I saw the picture and I'm so glad I explained to my husband what we'd been talking about already so he didn't think I'd totally lost it!

How awesome that you have that picture, such memories!

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Dear VS:

Where the ef are my things? Did you send them by carrier pigeon? Oh wait, they would have been here already if you had.

That was the toughest spider ever. I bashed it literally to pieces with my shoe and a boot. And it got up and walked away without one of its legs and pieces of the rest of its legs. So I bashed it some more and it got up again - after playing possum for a minute. I bashed it some more and off came another leg or two. And it moved away again. Thank goodness the vacuum cleaner was nearby.

I non-ironically like suspenders. I wish they would come back into style.
They sort of are. Or were....? You can buy them in all different colors and patterns in Hot Topic....

I had pinstriped pants with suspenders that I wore a lot in 6th grade (circa 1994-5) because I thought they were so cool. There's a really, really funny picture my friend put on FB from 6th grade where both of us are wearing suspenders.
Well, doc, you said this test had to be done, so I sucked it up and braced for the cost and had it done. Whatdayaknow? Everything looks fine. Except the problem is still there, so you're going to recommend yet another test, but there's an issue: This one might not be physically possible on me. So, uh, now what? I'm about to get four medical bills for no answers, and this seems like the end of the road.

And I still have the problem. That you say is abnormal, especially for someone my age.

Maybe by some stroke of luck, the three biopsies will indicate something, but I doubt it. You've sent me for about six tests now, and only one yielded a positive result. You weren't lying when you said I'd be a difficult one to diagnose and treat.

I would just like my body to function again. Kthx.
Under construction.
Why take potshots at people (yes, I mean me) instead of putting them/me on Ignore? I mean, I use Ignore, so maybe I'm just being paranoid here. But I'm starting to feel a little stalked.

I'm not posting this here to be passive aggressive or something. I'm kind of creeped out, I need a little bit of an outlet, and I'm embarrassed to talk about message board drama with my friends. But, I also don't want to disrupt any threads. So this post goes here.

But I'm honestly confused about why someone would complain repeatedly about another poster (any poster), instead of using Ignore.

I try pretty hard to avoid the board drama. I learned a while ago that while I'm intelligent enough to debate I lack the wit to keep up and respond without taking it personally. That's ok. I'll leave the intelligence and witty banter to you, MM, and RCW (just to name a few).

I'm gonna have to stalk you now, 'cause I love me some drama.

Plus, airing your gripes on-board gives people a chance to jump on the bandwagon and do that gang-up thing that some nc.com'ers like to do. Your "stalker" is probably hoping other boardies will back her up.
