Sorry, NYCFS. As you can see from the dates, it ran hot and heavy through August, then dropped from interest for about a month.

It's always fun to wander over to the incredibly slow-moving Other Topics board to see what might pop up. I think it takes about 6 months for a post to drop off the top 50.

This was about the liveliest thread these past few months. Just never know what you'll find on "Other Topics" - come visit here more often.

I would not sit naked on a hotel's bed spread (I might get pregnant from all of the droppings left there).

SeaUrchin -

A rash or itch maybe, but "preggy" - doubt it, those critters are long dead!

See I was right, a very lively topic!

Yes you are right, hopefully the previous couple checked out early, lol.

One time in a hotel room though I turned over the pillow and it was soaked with blood, that can put off sleep at bit!

>>can put off sleep<<

more like "get me another room" better yet "get me out of here" - I don't even want to think about what the body looked like.

I think it's time this thread be expired!

I'm still laughing about the thought of getting pregnant from all the droppings left on the hotel bed spread.

She might want to bring her own toilet seat in fear of catching some type of venereal disease.

This really is the thread that won't die. Would someone please bludgeon it, wrap it in its own sheets of whatever thread count, and give it a decent burial!

I'm right there with you! I thought when I suggested that the tread be expired, that would be it - but it keeps going and going and going.
Can't someone kill this Eveready bunny?

You can't kill threads in the twilight zone of "other topics". Things move so slowly here that this sucker could sit at the top for days! If you really want to kill it, reply to 50 other threads here and watch it sink. And I won't feel guilty for posting here because this one's been at the top all day

Auntie Mame, oh I mean NYCFS, I bring my own pillow too, my ears start hurting from those hard pillows if I use the hotel's.

Small world isn't it?

Auntie Mame? I saw the movie. I knew Lucy and I know Lucie. What am I missing?

I think SeaUrchin is referring to me and trying to pin my identity onto yours, NYCFS. This forum is full of conspiracy theorists and too much negativity for me. I admire your ability to manage among them. I can't do it. Some people give thoughtful and very useful advice. I'll continue to read but my desire to post is over. Well wishes to you.

Nothing of the sort, I didn't know there was a poster here named auntie mame. I was referring to the movie and some of NYCFS's way with words remind me of Auntie Mame, a movie I like by the way.

Isn't it a little ironic that seaurchin is accused by auntie mame of insulting food snob? We have to keep our senses of humor and perspective, don't we?

I'm sorry, SeaUrchin. What a coincidence. I made a fool of myself awhile back and I guess I did it again. You see, bad omens. I'm better off keeping my mouth shut. Again, my apologies.

This thread fascinated me. Mainly because, when taken with the other concurrent threads by the original poster, I got a mental picture of a neurotic that doesn't like being in contact with anything touched by other people-- or with other people. He/she also took great umbrage when others noted this-- and hasn't posted since. Did he/she pick up his/her toys and go home...?

And for the record, although I don't find the over-bleached sheets you get at most hotels sumptuous, I think they're safe. And as long as my honey's by my side, I sleep like a baby...

Here is another thought: In a hotel corridor I caught a man urinating in his room's complimentary coffee pot.

So, probably the next morning the maid rinsed it out and put it back on the stand.

Whoa, nocinonut, I am not the squeamish type, as anyone who reads my posts can tell. I think exposure to a little dirt and germs won't kill you, and Americans in general are over the top about the subject. I don't really care what someone did in the bathtub or on the bedspread. But frankly, your last post will be permanently lodged in my brain, and it may be a long time before I use the coffeepot in any hotel room again.
