kk <BR>there's a queenship opening on the " elite" club! I'm giving it up cause I wasn't able to give my attention to such trivial messages! I appreciate folks who like silly as well as real!

L Feb 8th, 2001 12:10 PM

This threas is wreck. Do any of you folks actually travel ... if so, what's with the toe nail bit? Really, what a disgusting thread. Does nayone really find this humorous? Ciao.

Amy Feb 8th, 2001 12:16 PM

Hello, L, dear. <BR>Travel back to the top and read all the way through...Ok? Now do you see? <BR>I think it's kinda nice that people can have a happy time with fairly silly travel topics, myself. <BR>And as for the traveling, itself--once or twice a year to Europe, starting with the USSR in 1984, plus various other spots. Do my credentials pass?

M Feb 8th, 2001 12:19 PM

I totally agree with L. Toe nail clipping is just awful and disgusting. I can't believe you people can even bring yourselves to talk about it, let alone do it. <BR> <BR>L, have you ever witnessed anyone flossing in economy? Give it some thought and get back to us.

Which of the following do you wish hotels would always provide (check all that apply): 1. bath mat for the floor; 2. oversized bath sheet; 3. not one but two bath towels per person; 4. separate hand towels in addition to bath towel; 5. a face cloth (flannel/washcloth/washrag, whatever). <BR> <BR>If someone offered you a first-class ticket, would you prefer to go a)by train, b) by plane, c) by boat? <BR> <BR>Which is the worst problem to have with a seat mate? 1.heavy perfume; 2. a cough or a cold; 3. inebriation; 4. gas. <BR> <BR>

Here's another candidate: <BR> <BR>Has a flight attendant ever come on to you? <BR> <BR>Yes <BR>No <BR>I think so (if asking for my phone number and plying me with drinks counts) <BR>

Way to go, Pam. You're famous!

howard Feb 9th, 2001 05:50 AM

I add my compliments to Pam. As the original poster of this thread, I want to thank you, Fodors! It sort of makes my life that much more worthwhile! <BR>Who says the Fodor editors don't list to us!!

Judy Feb 9th, 2001 05:59 AM

Wow! I am very proud of you all! I wish I was that witty! Judy :-) <BR>

pam Feb 9th, 2001 07:25 AM

Ohmigod! I'm PUBLISHED!!!! <BR> <BR>And if I AM caught dead clipping my toenails, it will be behind a closed door in my own bathroom, just so you all know. Thanks for defending my honor, kk.

pam Feb 9th, 2001 07:32 AM

Whoops, meant to add: <BR>Thanks for the compliments, and thanks to Howard for starting this thread. I haven't gotten so many laughs from a thread in a long time! <BR> <BR>And thanks, as always, to Fodor's.... and I'd like to thank the Academy, and my parents, and my second-grade teacher who really believed in me, and....

howard Feb 9th, 2001 09:56 AM

Pam, glad to help out on your road to fame. Just don't forget the ones who gave you your start as you continue up the ladder of success. But, I'm sure you wouldn't! <BR>I am certainly honored to be among the very few--your parents and second-grade teacher were the others--to be publicly thanked. I am truly humbled by your generosity!

Gary Feb 9th, 2001 05:55 PM

<BR> <BR>What standard announcement do you find most annoying: (a) Ladies and gentlemen, this flight is VERY full; (b) Please find your seats; we would like to maintain our high percentage of on-time departures; (c) Some overhead contents might have become dislogded when we hit the airpocket over Topeka and dropped 10,000 feet in twenty seconds.

cleanliness Feb 9th, 2001 06:04 PM

How do you use the bidet? <BR>1. soaking laundry <BR>2. washing feet <BR>3. keeping bouquet of flowers fresh <BR>4. extra urinal <BR>5. other... <BR> <BR>

hate smokers Feb 9th, 2001 06:09 PM

Who would you LEAST want to have sitting in your row on a plane? <BR>1. a smoker <BR>2. person with a bad cold <BR>3. screaming baby <BR>4. unbathed jogger

xxx Feb 9th, 2001 06:13 PM

Another vote for Danna's "baby" question - THE BEST.

mk Feb 9th, 2001 06:29 PM

How do you keep from getting wet in an airplane toilet? <BR>1. don't drink anything all day <BR>2. stand on the seat <BR>3. wear shorts, not long pants <BR>4. wear a skirt or a kilt, not pants

Dade Feb 9th, 2001 06:31 PM

Re: hate smokers <BR> <BR>1) "hate smokers [email protected]" <BR>2) anyone who hates other people <BR>3) everyone is is OK <BR> <BR>seriously

stacey Feb 9th, 2001 06:53 PM

I think we should all be relieved that Pam and/her seat mate (who may or may not have been Elvira's spouse/lover) was clipping his toenails and not biting them. Now that would have to have been a contortionist. <BR> <BR>Which of the following would you prefer next to you in a hotel with thin walls. <BR>A) 4 Rugby players the night after they win the finals. <BR>B) the chatty nun with a sister in Maine. <BR>C)A Honey moon couple <BR>D) Your spouse or lover
