Hahahahahahaha! Loved it! This reminds me of a family story about our travels in Europe. It was me, my sister, mom and dad. We were in Monte Carlo and decided to visit a casino. We went to a table and one of the dealers addressed my sister. She asked him to repeat, which he did. She looked around blankly. He tried again, so I answereed and spoke with him. My sister looked at me with this expression of awe and said "how did you know what he was saying?" I looked at her like she was stupid and said, "uhhh...he was speaking English". I had no trouble communicating with him, but my sister didn't even know realize he was speaking the same language. Funny how differently the brain can perceive things.

Is Asian room service always female?

Great post.

Was the photo done with PhotoShop or its equivalent?

It is amazing how the mind is able to grasp things when led down the path.

Oh, they are soooo nekkid ! And covering up the best parts at that. See my eyes are still good even if after searching the photo of what must be nudist convention for some radical group worshipping the ground.

Having just got off the phone with a computer expert from India, I can certainly sympathise with "Tenjewberrymuds". I must have said, "Please speak slowly" or "Will you repeat that again." at least fifteen times.
