They gave the photo of Obama a moustache.

THAT moustache.

*gasp*

They were comparing President Obama to. . .Magnum, P.I.???  The nerve!

Friend of mine actually took them to task over what they had against facial hair. They were *totally* unprepared for this line of accusation, and he nearly reduced one of the folks working the booth to tears.

If they aren’t gonna argue from a position of logic, why should you?

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

I would have loved to see that discussion.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

So…I’m in Germany…among the Germs.  We’re in temporary lodging for now…a very cute 2 bedroom apartment.  I left all the information about bus routes & times (and one of Eric’s important documents) on the bus that brought us to Landstuhl.  but I thought I’d make sure if you don’t have me on FB that you know I’m “about” again.  For now.  This temp lodging has WiFi…so for as long as we’re here…I’ve got internet.  Not sure what our next step will be…but for now…we’re here.

I’ve got an absolutely horrendous headache today. sick

It’s my own stupid fault, though. I’ve not been drinking enough and let myself get really dehydrated.

*grumbles*

Generally, I like my e-reader and reading ebooks.  However, I’m not happy when something goes wrong with the publisher’s formatting, and the book won’t load on my e-reader.  Especially when it’s a Terry Pratchett novel. blank stare

Yes…I’m within visiting range for Edinburgh!!  I’m in visiting range of a LOT of places!!  :D

I’ve had a headache, too.  Even threw up early in the morning…Think it might actually be a caffeine thing.  I’ve been drinking a lot more coffee during our travels…But haven’t had any since we got to Frankfurt.  Not much in the area, either…so I can’t pop in to a shop & find something.  I also have no euros…But I do have a credit card…so if I found an ATM…I spose I could get some.  Anywho…

I’m glad you’re having fun even if you’re feeling a bit ill right now.  I think it’s also because of excitement-stress which is normal.  Rest and take everything a little slower maybe?  Enjoy Maegan…you deserve it!
