What is it with the ladies' locker room?

I love going to the gym. I'm not a gym rat and I'm not chiseled to perfection.  But I do enjoy going.  I feel better, look better and it's a great way to unwind.  However, ladies, please be aware of your conduct in the locker room.  We have the young babblers who apparently think everyone cares about their teenage troubles.  We have the rude space hogs who think they own the whole room. Pick up your crap and move it!  I'm standing at my locker and your stuff is everywhere.  Then there are the paraders.  Seriously, I do not want to see your naked body parading all over the locker room.  You don't look that good.  The other day there was a woman, I'm guessing in her mid to late 40s, who I know thought that she was it.  As I was leaving she was (at first) standing buck naked facing her locker.  She was so skinny, I thought she was just a spine.  Then it got worse....she turned around.  And there she was...a spine with nipples.  Come on, picture it.  A spine with nipples...HUGE nipples because her breasts were emaciated.  This is an image that has burned its way thru my brain and will be there always.  Ladies, please be aware...some modesty is a good thing for all of us.  It's good for you and it is most definitely good for the rest of us.  When going to or coming from the shower, steam room or sauna...cover up.  I don't ever want to see anything more than I already have.

Why I Love

We're all looking to save money...I clip coupons, look for bargains, buy low, sell high, pay myself first and don't splurge all that much.  Until recently I was shopping a one of the warehouse stores and paying $35 a year for the privilege.  Then along comes Amazon Subscribe and Save.  Basically anything you can find in Sam's, Costco or BJs is at Amazon's Subscribe and Save section.  Here's how it works.... Visit the section and find what you need...say 2,500 Bounty Napkins.  You click on them and indicate how often you need them delivered to your house.  Every month, two months, three months or six months.  Then hit subscribe.  The item will be delivered to you FOR FREE.  And the savings on most items is between 3 and 4 dollars.  Some more, some a little less.  I really love this.  I love it so much, I've added Amazon to my blog.  Click on my Amazon store Robin's Amazon Store or go to the Amazon search box and see for yourself.  Amazon made it easy for me, so I'm making it easy for you.  It's all about saving money, saving time and ultimately, saving the precious minute or two you may have to yourself.

Let me know what you think.  And let me know how much you saved!

This will be interesting...

To blog, or not to blog.  I've always wanted to, so why not?  But what to write about.  Food, dogs, work-place incidents, sports...why not all of them?  "People, please be aware" was a phrase I used often in a former work place.  People really needed to be aware of many things.  Like their own ridiculousness. Now I work at a decent place...but my office is adjacent to the kitchen...and some of the things I overhear are, indeed, ridiculous.  This is as good a place as any to start the blog.  Entry number one:  "If our bodies were perfect, they wouldn't smell."

Think about the funny things YOU'VE overheard in your office.  Feel free to post them. Come on, this is gonna be fun!
