Hm, I guess I thought they were like swamps, which I also assume have a bad odor to them, though I've never been to one of them either.

I think it's because where I grew up, we had a "pond", and in the summer when it was hot, the "pond" would smell because it was attached to the sewers somehow. I guess from that I associate all non-oceanian or big lakes with that smell. Curious. I never knew that until just now. New York = Gross.


ETA - Is that a leprachaun mass grave? How awful.

lol!!

The Great Lakes are actually pretty cool. I was dreading moving here when we moved as I thought I would feel claustrophobic never having been this far from the ocean (not a word smart asses, to me it makes sense), but the lakes are great, they smell nice, they are relatively clean, no jelly fish or sea weed..my little cousins love them and call them "the clean sea, the one that doesn't sting"

Yeah, the first time I saw a great lake (the one in Cleveland) I was amazed you couldn't see the other side. It's like looking at an ocean.

I understand about the ocean and feeling claustrophobic. I just like knowing it's there. I remember after we spent a rough few days in Phoenix and Vegas, my friends and I drove to San Diego, we straight right to the beach and stared at the ocean for a bit.

They are really dangerous places (no whimis there!!), but really cool plant and animal life, and a really cool sense of how ancient they are.
I plan on doing that to my children Not that I had to do it but so they can see how hard their grandma had to work. while their OC counterparts are picking out new noses mine will be mucking around in bogs

Beav I'm fairly certain you can find a bog while you're in scotland. In Ireland I think my uncles house is one of the few still using turf.

Cool - I'll have that kid carting dead leprachauns as well then. Seems to have worked out for you two, that gives me hope for my daughter.

Wait, does Scotland have leprachauns? If not, I'll find some elves, or gnomes perhaps.

Kat - I it - they will be well grounded!!

My grandparents still use turf, and my nana still uses a range, no stove. no washing machine either, still boiling the clothes ...just idiocy, their house is lovely, but they are old and are just being stubborn and at this point looking like fools.

My other nana is awesome, and thinks this one is demented




Thanks for understanding that ocean thing Beav - most people just think it's confirmation that I am in fact, a moron.

I'm confused.....why do you want to shut the Temple Bar down? I like that pub, I've never found anything wrong with it.

My mom is like that and she lives in CA where it is more noticable that she is... odd. She's nearing 70 (she was old when she had me) and she single handedly painted the entire outside or our house not that long ago The woman likes hard labor I tell you. The smell of bleach always reminds me of her, that's her scent she cleans everything with it
