This happened to me once...except I was on the other end. I was so used to metrics when I moved here. I hated inches and foot.
I remember asking for the 6 you want half a foot maam. Moi: NO. Just 6 inches please with a diet coke!
I sure got some look that day from that little Asian lady.

I understand that you might be frustrated over the repeated delete of your comments on Kinzi's blog. But I think this is pointless. Kinzi did not even know that this is on my blog. I appreciate your visit to my humble blog. But this is not acceptable. Sorry but I am going to delete this as I don’t wanna be part of the mishmash on kinzi's blog. All I wanted is to shoe sincerity to another female being harassed and I think I don’t need to clear any understanding about the Arab/Muslim culture as most blogger has done a good job at that although Kinzi seem to have a good background on that. Enough said on the topic

Dandoon, heh-heh, I just ran a google search on my blog name (I get such weird people!) and saw this. Ya salaam, I am so sorry you got picked out also. Thanks for caring!

Hey, I think you'll be mentioned in VIVA next month. I'll let you know if the FB quotes make the final edit. I thought they were hilarious, so did editor #1. Blessings!

But definitively I set this locate selling them as a remedy for half price. I absolutely want these [url=]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely purchase these. what can you say about it?
