I started laughing the second we opened the door. You could have put a pool table in there if you wanted it was so big.
Pool table would have been more fun.

Nebo, if you are using a Windows machine you should have either Notepad or Wordpad (or both).

You can type your stuff in there and save it to your hard drive before you paste it into the DIS. I usually paste the image links in and all.

As for the formatting thing, I am not sure if it will transfer over using notepad or wordpad. Sorry, I do use Word when I do this. Experiment with this and try it, see what works.

I love that Smidgy ripped the microwave up...that is awesome.
Nebo, I have to go to the DMV on Saturday - want to come? I bet you could even make that interesting

Nebo - try Walgreens, I think they carry both BC and Goody Powders. They are with the aspirin. I know a couple of folks at work who swear by them.

[QUOTE][QUOTE=nebo;22518122] For those of you wondering, yes, Diane drives, she just doesn't drive on expressways or highways. She's a good driver otherwise, so I never push that issue. [/QUOTE

I know several people like that. My oldest sister Mia doesn't do any of the driving to Florida. My second oldest sister Judi does, but after a trip a couple of years ago she said she was done driving. She needs drugs to get on a plane but she's done driving. My younger sister Jaime will drive if I need to close my eyes for a while, but 99.9% of the time I do 100% of the driving. It's a good thing I like to drive.

I did the polite head nod, which he countered with, "Heading out to the pool are ya?"

I wanted to say, "Nope, got a job interview, here's your sign."
Instead, I said, "Nope, the beach, which is warmer, the Gulf side or Atlantic?"


Quote:
Then found out he was the pilot.

I lovingly referred to him as Pontius, the Pilot.



Quote:
Our buddy was there, too.

Looking into the mostly still packed Santa Fe, he said, "You guys must be on vacation."

Yeah, no getting one over on this guy.

"Nope, just taking our luggage for a drive."
As Bill Engvall would have said there just wasn't enough signs for this guy.




Quote:
Upon the return trip from Macdonalds, of course I'm carrying the big white bags with the big M on them.

Wanna guess what's coming up?

You got it!

"Hi again." "Went to the ol Mickeyds', huh?"

By now I'm thinking we are his sole entertainment in life.
"Nope,went to Microsoft, just had dinner with Bill Gates and he let us take home the leftovers."


Quote:
Back in the room, I put the whole bag in the microwave. It stays pretty warm in there, and when it's all together, you only need to zap the whole bag for about 40 seconds.

One problem though.
It's not plugged in.
And the cord comes two feet short of the outlet.

Ok, I'll just move the microwave.

Uh uh. It is totally and completely bolted down to the top of the dresser.

Ok, I'll just pull the dresser over.

Uh uh. It is totally and completely bolted to the wall.

So, it boiled down to :
I can't heat the food, that's in the micro, that's bolted to the dresser, that's bolted to the wall, ,,,

That lived in the house that Jack, built.

The guy at the counter told us our room had a working microwave, so I didn't understand this, unless somebody stole the extension cord.

I explained the dilemma to Diane, and of course, she had to go and check out all the variables to see for herself, because, you know, I can't be trusted.
Oh my God, I laughed so hard when I read this because I would have done EXACTLY the same thing to my DH! It's not that you can't be trusted, it is just such and unbelieveable situation we have to check it out for ourselves


Quote:
After she saw everything I said was true, she stood back and looked at it, then she solved the problem.

SHE RIPPED IT OFF THE TOP OF THE DRESSER!
I would have done this too

Thanks for writing,

Missy in MN

I'm not sure if the margins will all be messed up, and if the pictures will then go through, no what I mean, Jean? Has anybody tried it this way? No, I don't have "Word", I've never used it. I just sit here and type, then hit submit. So, any thought on posting a chapter from an email, just in case? Thanks, neebs
Do you have any kind of Word Processing Program. Works, Corel, anything..help a girl out here

open whatever "doc" program your computer has, type your reply in "advanced" mode. copy what is in your post and paste it to your doc program, save it "as" something before you hit "post"

*ahem*

Yea, what Colleen said.... not sure I'd even try to email it to myself, should just be able to save it to your computer ("save as") before you try to post it.

p.s. - remind me to not anger Smidgy, I've seen my wife move logs around but I really don't think she'd have it in here to rip off something that was bolted down! But I guess that's why I usually just say "yes ma'am" and move on
