Wore this last week to have dinner with a couple of co-workers at Dolce Vita.  Dinner was mellow and pleasant with some wine, pizza, and truffled egg toast.  You know, I had a good time until I found out my car got towed.

"Where is my car?  It was there right?!"
"Yes, it was where that Altima is now."
"Then WHERE IS IT!?  Where's the No Parking sign?"

Turns out the no-parking-tow-away-zone sign was down the block on the OTHER CORNER.  How am I supposed to see that from THIS corner?!

ugh.

OH, but not only did they tow my car, I also got a parking citation.  Come on now, SRSLY?!

If the sign is not posted on that side of the street where you can see it, you shouldn't get a parking citation. It needs to be on that same block. WHAT THE FUCK?

Traffic rules and cops are stupid.

You look great, I loves it when you smile!! And oh, yeah, your eye brows are perfect. I've been putting so much work into mine. I'm frustrated with 'em.

Sorry for the tow and citation! Been there, done that. Houston is NOTORIOUS for its awful misleading, misplaced signage. Any excuse to make you not want to go contest your ticket and pay. Now, I ALWAYS contest the ticket (out of principle) of course.

Love the simplicity of this look and I love your hair put up in a bun like that. Very sleek and it goes well with the outfit ;)

Phentermine resin became available in the United States in 1959 and Phentermine Hydrochloride in the early 1970s.

Why is this phentermine prescribed?

Phentermine is used, in combination with diet and exercise, to help you lose weight. It works by decreasing your appetite.

This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Most people take the drug for 3-6 weeks; the length of treatment depends on how you respond to phentermine. Phentermine can be habit-forming. Do not take a larger dose, take it more often, or for a longer period than your doctor tells you to.

To prevent side effects, phentermine should be taken with meals. If you are taking an extended-release (long-acting) product, do not chew or crush the tablet. There are some tablets that can be crushed and mixed with food.

However, you should not discount the pre-season altogether. These games are good for information gathering purposes -- learning more about new players and coaches -- but not good for wagering. Be sure to pass on the pre-season and save your bankroll for the games that count.

3.) Every card poses the same chance or game odds of winning at a game of online bingo. Hence, if you play with more cards, you are increasing your game odds and winning chances.

Online bingo is a game of chance. However, you can develop specific bingo systems to turn the game odds in your favor. The simplicity of the game offers extensive scope for you to employ winning bingo systems. Normally, every bingo player tries to match the called numbers on the screen with those in his bingo card in little time. This helps you call out 'bingo' earlier to ensure your win at the game.

With so many different casino and gaming sites on the Internet, it is difficult to know which ones are legitimate and which ones are not. After all, if you want to join the gaming community, you have to decide whether you want to play for money or for fun and prizes. If the former, it is more pertinent to find out what sites are legitimate since you do not want to invest cash into something that is not going to give you a return on your investment.

Your aim would be to cover the prescribed pattern with the bingo letters, by coordinating the letters and numbers called. The patterns can be anything like, u shape, t shape, etc, though it usually is horizontal or vertical. As soon as you get the pattern, you should shout bingo and you get the prize. In case there are others who shouted at the same time as you, the prize will be shared among all winners.
