You are all a riot!!!! Personally i like to say, "I have to go powder my nose." In such a coarse way that it leaves no doubt what I am REALLY going to do!!!
My Granny once asked my sister (when she was little) if she wanted to "spend a penny." My sister said "SURE!!" thinking some candy was in the offing...was SHE ever surprised to be taken into the public restroom!!!

I always ask the server at a restaurant or a store clerk where the "ladies room" is...they seem to know what I am talking about so hey

Good for you Mauvais!

Ellis - were you born in England? I was born in London, came to Canada at age 5. One thing about us brits - we have plenty of euphamisms for "the loo".

Hi girls,
quick pit stop before heading to the beach...my DP and DD left yesterday and DP will be home in a few minutes to pick me up to join them...I had lots of work to finish up. But the good news is...I'm here for weighin
starting weight 183
last week 180.5
this week 179 !!!!!

yahoo!!! total loss so far 4 pounds...
6 more pounds to go and 6 more weeks to go!
I can do it! (so can you...well, except for Lidian's wish for 15 pounds by next week...that is, unless you want to remove a body part Lidian...I mean, who needs two kidneys and have you had your appendix and gall bladder removed...then there's always liposuction...gotta go pack quickly!! )
love you girls,
Soozie

Yes, Karen... we moved here when I was two. Needless to say I don't have many memories of my birthplace.

I am up for the toffee challenge mentioned a while back. I did, however, fail the leftover Pepperidge Farm Cookie challenge. Yum. Burp. Back on wagon... and besides the company that cme Saturday ate most of them!

Lidian: Re library/lavatory confusion -- my father always said he was going to "the library" whenever he was going to be a particularly long time in the bathroom. I'm sorry you didn't hear the librarian's comment directly, too... because as a former librarian, I can promise you that we always enjoyed someone who would laugh like a wild hyena!!!

Default I am on the wagon

Excercising, watching my food. Who knows if I will lose any weight, once I start to really move I tend to creep up instead of go down. The upside I feel great.

I have considered organ donation before to lose pounds. But all that recovery time, who has time for it?

My dad use to always say he was going to visit Mrs. Murphy. I still don't know what it means except he is going to be in the bathroom A LONG TIME!

Miss Chris

Hahahaha! You girls are so funny, you put a big smile on my face on this rainy day cooped up with 2 slightly (slightly?) bored young ladies (& two insolent cats)...

My family did not have any special washroom euphemisms but my great aunt had pink and silver poodles-in-Paris wallpaper in her washroom, which I thought was fabulous when I was a kid. And a loo-shaped ashtray on top of the toilet which read 'rest your tired ash', which I was mystified by until much older...

In E.F. Benson's "Mapp and Lucia" books, one of the characters calls coloring his hair "being busy indoors", which could also be a good euphemism for washroom activity I guess!

Children of course are totally direct, aren't they? No puches pulled. The urgent whisper to mom, the indoor busyness to follow...

I'm not discouraged...going to the gym today

taken it a bit easier...today I'll do cardio and then come home

Nice to be back girlies.

HI SOOZIE!! It is GREAT to stay the same on vacation!!! I have stalled a bit, so I went back on phase 1 of South Beach Diet. I have 4 pounds to go to reach my September goal.
