Read this in a loud, militarily authoritative tone:

Stop posting and re-reading posts! You need to get to work! You have no business here!

And you over there, get that damn thin mint out of your mouth before I come over there and slap it out.

O.K. -- no need to actually respond to Deja Vu's witty post yet here I am typing away, seconds after its appearance.

"Yes, I've had a thin mint before, and it really worked out for me" or

"I know someone who had a thin-mint while riding the subway and wished she had eaten something else" or

"always use a Capital one credit card to purchase your thin mints but be sure to call first to ensure 0% transaction fees".

I just can't stop.

Stop posting compulsively,

Start posting wittily, provocatively, informatively, cussedly or sensationally. You'll feel a great deal better.

Maybe you need a more interesting job? Possibly one in the travel business...

Fishee,

If this is the worse vice you have, embrace it, covet it, and enjoy it. Rid yourself of the guilt. Strength is overrated, perspective makes one too serious!! Life is way too important to be taken seriously (thin mints are best eaten when frozen).

Oh, fishee, your "work" is suffering?Don't you know if you feel bad, there is always somebody who feels worse? Take me, for example, I have so many unanswered e-mails, and instead I'm posting here!

I don't know about you're work environment, but in mine, Big Brother computer techy is able to spy on our computers from the comfort of his office & we never know when he's watching.

Internet connection....$19.95 a month give or take

Box of Thin Mints....$ 3.50 every day or so

Valuable advice from new friends around the world who enjoy and share your travel interests....PRICELESS

Eat a thin mint and post on, my friend!

I know, I have the same disease, fishee. We here in Fodorville, (a town much nicer than Pleasantville) really enjoy each other's stories, comments, advice, and compansionship. This is the place we all come when we want to consort with others just like us that have the urge, that travel bug, that unstoppable urge to go out and experience the world, learn about other cultures, customs, eating habits, and history. We all share a common bond here, and you are always welcome here. So don't quit reading and posting ever!

(PS. I am a terrible enabler. Post on, read on and never stop!)

Robespierre LOL

fishee,
Sex..think about sex. I hear that works or Shopping..but then you will probably think about doing those nice little activities on a trip, so there you go~
I personally never think about either one but I hear others find it helpful..I prefer thin mints LOL

Thin mints, got my two cases, Yes I freeze some, maybe three boxes, they're great in the summer. That's right only three boxes, I tend to eat them by the sleeve. But it's for the kids.

And don't miss the Thin Mint ice cream, heaven.

Time for dessert.
