Hmm, maybe I'll call the corner store and see if they deliver new ideas in under 30 minutes...

If they cant, then tell them to bring icecream instead.

I am frowning because ignorance is still legal.
Is there any excuse for it with all the information available to us these days?:(

well said
standing in a queue for half an hour just to be told i had to stand in another queue of about 200 people at the high commission today getting my visa
but frowning is so negative so i think more of the positive points like
i got my visa
now back to the frowning bit
i was frowning on the way to the visa office because i had to ride my bike 100 miles in heavy rain, and found out my waterproof gear isnt as waterproof as it seemed to be yesterday
buit to reinstate the clever/dumb balance or karma as its commonly known
while i was up there i managed to meet up with a friend who was nice enough to offer to throw my clothes in the drier ready for the trip home
then i frowned again on the way home because the motorway was packed so tight i had to stop 5 times in different places and slow down to under 30mph for about 3 miles at a time also on several occasions and for no reason but the fact that certain people have a habit of flashing their brake lights causing the domino effect
or they just wanted to rubberneck a broken down car on the other side of the motorway
this made my trip home last 2 hours, and its cold out there, and my back is playing up again
and then when i got home i booked my flights, so that made karma become ever truer
now im frowning because all this facial excercise going from frown to smile to frown to smile has given me a headache and im getting frown lines
hopefully ill get up tomorrow and it 'wont' be raining
ill get all the things done what i have planned
and the sun will be shining
and ...... oh forget it
its england im talking about
ill probably frown tomorrow too
ill be back with more news tomorrow lol

Customer service at the pharmacy made me seriously frown today.
I walked in just after I’d been to the gym/showered and since I had forgotten to bring some moisturizer my face was really dry. I wasn’t going home anytime soon so I thought I’d quickly use a sample at the pharmacy to solve the problem.
The shop assistants were standing at the other end of the shop, hardly blinking when I walked in and continued chatting away; therefore I went to the first shelf and tried a random sample. As it turns out it made my skin even dryer and I decided to give another moisturizer a go (that also clearly was labeled as a sample) when all of a sudden one of the girls stands in front of me saying “What are you doing here, first you use some moisturizer for wrinkles, now some for extra dry skin.” And then she stares at me accusingly. No, “Hi, can I help you”, “Are you looking for something in particular?” but instead she made me feel like I was a shoplifter. After a few seconds of frowning and thinking whether she was for real, I asked her if she had a problem that I as a customer tried a few more things. You should have seen her frowning then .
Was it just me being unlucky or have you ever come across such ludicrous customer service?

Welcome to Berlin.

HA! Welcome to my world... At least you don't have to shovel it all out of your driveway. Though, it was an entertaining sight to see a little purple Neon plowing through 7+ inches of snow this morning. While I was out shoveling, our friend called to say her husband would be by about noon to plow the drive. Too late - it was done by 8:30. I knew I should have waited longer...

Q - drive behind the snow plow.

It's been snowing non-stop here since late last night. Two to five centimetres my... eye!!! Every time they forecast snow, the dang stuff comes down at least double.
