Reasons to make the O_o Face

There are times when you read, see or hear something that just makes you  :o. This is the thread to share them on!

The other day I don't know where I stumbled on a thread discussing the Nancy Drew novels. I remembered how much I loved them and I did a little research...which led me to the original publishers, who also published the Hardy Boys and the Bobbsey Twins. All written by a cadre of ghost writers under cover names. Then I found a link to an audio book of one of the Bobbsey Twins stories, which I loved when I was a kid. I listened to it for old times' sake. The  :o happened when the author described little Flossie-aged-four's collection of dolls, among which was a black Sambo doll given to her by the family's "coloured cook Dinah, and her husband the stableman, Sam." Who had "excellent rooms above the stables." They had given her this black worsted ragdoll (named Jujube) which she kept with her other dolls..."but apart, at the other end of the shelf, and with a nice  piece of white pasteboard in between--because, well, he wasn't really family."

:o  :o
The story goes on to state that Flossie had thought about giving Jujube away but didn't want to hurt Dinah's feelings; "and after all, as Mamma said, there weren't any doll hospitals for black orphan dolls."

No wonder the Bobbsey Twins books went out of fashion. Nancy Drew is still available today...but then there was nothing like that in them.

So, VWers, what made you :o    today?

I took an insurance claim from a lady today. She was claiming she lost her ring. I asked her for the value of the ring. She said "I'm not sure. When I bought it 20 years ago, it was worth $20,000."  :o :o

Does US insurance cover things you lose yourself? I thought it had to be proven stolen. If it's insured she has the valuation paperwork somewhere, or did she lose that, too?

Good question, Yabbit. I'm sorry I can't answer your question, though. My job is so limited, I can only take the claim. I'm not told of what's covered, what's not, etc.

Obviously, he loves large hearts in animals.  They're better for sucking the blood.  You know, whenever he's outdoors and has the opportunity.

So, funny story...You know that dance comp I won last year? A friend of ours  filmed it and put it on youtube way back in September, and I posted it here, a lot of you saw.

Well last night, as M was at the friend's place to fix the car, the friend checked his youtube, and the conversation went something like this:

Friend: Weird.. have you given out the link to your dance to anyone recently?
M: No...
F: Has Theo?
M: No, don't think so...
F: Huh... well it just got over 360 views in the last...day...

Curious, they found out a youtube feature that shows where the video has been embedded and how many hits have come from it. The website responsible for 360+ hits?

"showingstockingtops.com".

Yep. I'm now an international fetish star.

Lollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll :O

I'd think fetish people are much more demanding in their stocking tops than others.

Ms Theo,
It's the legs in the stockings that make the cut!! Stockings without legs are just bags. Put a leg in there, a high-quality leg, and you've got a dream in the making...or at least a fantasy.

Yet another of my students, age 24, an engineer, has never heard of the Holocaust, or Hitler, or anything, according to her. I asked her if she'd ever heard of Anne Frank and she said, "I've heard the name." But the death of over 6 million people? "I don't know what you're talking about."  :o

I don't know which is worse, her total ignorance and don't care attitude, or the young people who think Nazi symbols etc. are "cool."
