Re: Annoying words, and Words You Hate

Point expansion: I don't know if it's just something people do around where I live or what.. People sometimes throw an extra h in words like sweet->shweet or shlimy and other stuff.

Re: Annoying words, and Words You Hate

There was a "treadmill-a-thon" at school. Whoever ran the most on the one treadmill that day was supposed to win something. I ran the most but never got anything.

Re: Skipping aka Dumpster Diving

Awesome! I love to dumpster dive and am quite thrilled to have found a thread about it / other people who like to do it too... Foodwise, my most recent acquisition was a small unopened bag of Doritos... From the same dumpster I have also in the past gotten ~46 new 20 ounce bottles of pop in two diff...
