Don't want to take over your blog but once you mentioned the bank drive through I couldn't stop laughing. I got this great email recently and it reminded me of it. I'm posting it here but you can delete if you feel it isn't appropriate.

To all the woman out there, yes it is written by a man, yes it is exaggerated but you gotta see the funny side. (I'm a woman and i do)

A sign in the Bank Lobby reads: "Please note that this Bank is installing new Drive-through teller machines enabling customers to withdraw cash without leaving their vehicles. Customers using this new facility are requested to use the procedures outlined below when accessing their accounts. After months of careful research, MALE & FEMALE procedures have been developed. Please follow the appropriate steps for your gender."

m00kie...
not talking about atm...talking about those drive thru bank lanes..where this capsules comes flying out of this thing..and u put ur info in..and send it somehow into the bank and wait for them to send it back..with a "have a nice day"..that apparatus always reminded me of the ones in bowling alleys that bring the balls back up....

chaya - sometimes in life, we think we're gonna get one thing, but in the end, we end up with something much bigger. if we're careful to use it correctly =, if can help us become better, but if we're careless, it can hurt us badly.

morl of the story is: use your feet and walk into the bank.
