  2. I always thought the brunette in yellow was the prettiest.... of course she was probably closer to my mother's age back then... but I didn't care.
  3. Sorry... wasn't sure if this club was meant for women only... so I figured I would share this here.... You won't see me trying e-mancipate men's nylons anytime soon. LOL

  5. Do you know what tetraphobia means? It means ‘fear of four’ in Greek: a combination of the Greek words tetra (the number 4) and phobia (fear). You might be shocked to find that tetraphobia is fairly common throughout the many Asian countries such as, China Japan, and Korea. As some believe the number 13 has the unlucky connotation in the western cultures, many have 미신 (superstitions) about the number 4 in 한국 (South Korea). 4자 기피 [sa-jja-gi-pi] – tetraphobia: fear of the number four 13 층 [sip-sam-cheung] – 13th floor 호텔 엘리베이터 [ho-tel-el-li-be-ee-tuh] – hotel elevator 12층 [sip-ee-cheung] – 12th floor 14 층 [sip-sa-cheung] – 14th floor 미신 [mi-shin] – superstition 한국 [han-gook] – South Korea Why do Korean people have 4자 기피 (tetraphobia) As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, many Asian countries, including South Korea, consider the number 4 as unlucky. The reason for 4자 기피 (tetraphobia) is because ‘사 (the number 4 in Sino-Korean)’ and the Sino-Korean word for ‘사 (death)’ are homophones. 사 [sa] – ‘the number 4’ in Sino-Korean 사 [sa] – Sino-Korean word for ‘death’ Whether you are living or traveling in South Korea, you will notice 4자 기피 (tetraphobia) is permeated in many dimensions of the South Korean culture. Especially many elevators in the South Korean 병원 (hospitals) do not have the 4th floor; or the English letter ‘F’ represents the 4th floor in the buildings. People also avoid giving four blocks of gifts for celebratory occasions, such as 결혼 (weddings), 생일 (birthdays), and 집들이 (housewarmings) 파티 (parties). I remember how shocked my Korean friend was when she saw a license plate number with 4444 in the U.S. 병원 [byeong-won] – hospital 결혼 [gyeol-hon] – wedding 생일 [sang-il] – birthday 집들이 [jip-deul-ee]– housewarming 파티 [pa-tee] – party The reason for Korean people’s 4자 기피 (tetraphobia) might sound irrational to your ears, however, it will be helpful for you to understand why there are no 4th floors in certain buildings in South Korea, and why people avoid giving gifts in a group of fours in many occasions. Since many Korean people consider the number 4 is associated with misfortunes or death, understanding this aspect of the Korean culture might help you to avoid possible cultural sensitivity. 감사합니다!
  6. "In a Different Light" (sometimes shortened to "Different Light") is a song written by Bob McDill, Dickey Lee and Bucky Jones, and recorded by American country music artist Doug Stone. It was released in February 1991 as the fourth and final single from his self-titled debut album. It peaked at number 1 in both the United States and Canada, thus becoming his first number one hit. The song is about a male office worker who has a fantasy-come-true about one of his female co-workers, who -- despite her apparent youthful appearance -- is always bespectacled, her hair in a bun and conservatively dressed in business attire. The protagonist takes note of his male co-workers' lack of interest in the woman, while not letting on (to them) about his social encounters with the woman. It is during these encounters that the protagonist reveals that "I see you (the co-worker) in a different light," remarking that he had seen the woman with her hair worn long and with "love in [her] eyes," revealing her physical beauty to him.
  7. Every morning I watch you walk into the office, you're business suit and matching shoes With your hair put up neatly, you tug at your glasses and you sit down, just three desks down. I watch you in the flourescent glare, and my mind drifts away somewhere And I see you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light, Just the way I saw you last night. There's girls at the office, the guys always notice when they walk by, but you're not the type. They don't know what I know, while some things just don't show in tailored tweeds, that's fine with me. Let them all think what they want to, as for me when I look at you I see you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes. In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light Just the way I saw you last night. Baby it's you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes. In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light. Just the way I saw you last night.
