Years and years ago (before I lived in FL) I was visiting, and apparently I had a habit of looking at my watch. My buddy was like "WTF you looking at your watch for? You're on vacation." So I took my watch off and did not put one back on until that same buddy gave me a Seiko some 17 years later. Waterproof to like 8 atmospheres or something. Said he never expected me to do something like that. So now I wear that watch when I go out or visit him, part of the bling package and all that. But as habit, I still dont wear one.

I have a watch that needs a battery. It's needed one for at least three years. I keep forgetting to take it with me when I go to the mall. Apparently it's the only place in town that replaces Fossil batteries. I don't know why. <shrug> I have a bunch of other watches too. They all need batteries. There's a Seiko (which I love btw) that I want for a graduation gift. It's like 600.00. Every time I mention it people look at me like I'm speaking Martian. <shrug again>

My kids tell me that is a generational marker.People who have grown up with cell phones don't wear watches.
Thank your buddy for taking 20 years off your age.

I never have worn a watch. Well, maybe not never, but rarely. The first cell phone I got was when I was 35. I'm left handed but I tend to use both hands for various things. I think most lefties are like this. So a watch always bothered me.(mimi shrug) Guess I'm just different.:) Like THAT comes as a surprise.

Hey, Mimi. A friend of mine mentioned she was invited to a Muslim wedding. A coworker is getting married. She wants to go out of respectful curiosity and doesn't know what to expect. She hasn't responded yet because the coworker is a PITA and that's a reason she really doesn't want to go.

The curiosity and learning experience is pushing her towards it.

How does a Muslim wedding (usually) differ from other weddings/ceremonies? And the reception as well?

No. If you don't know where the numbers on a clock belong by now, you've gone through life completely clueless.

I know where the numbers go, but it's a spacial (spatial?) thing. At least give me notches where the numbers go.

I went to a Muslim reception once. I'd say dress conservatively and go have fun. Don't expect booze, though. Definitely one of the biggest and most expensive receptions I've ever been to.

It isn't. We're suppose to get up to 83 today. Warm weather has to be coming your way soon.

It's called "ads by zinc" or something. it slides out from the left side, then slides back, then out again, then back, then.....

I have flash turned off, so when I clicked the x it minimized, and since then has dissapeared.
