Searching for answersSat Nov 26, 2005 Miss Vicky
Like most bloggers, Miss Vicky finds it fascinating to peruse her stats every once in a while. ... OK, more than every once in a while. Among the more interesting things you can find out is the search strings people use to find their way to your blog. Miss Vicky noticed a bit of a theme.... searches in the form of questions. Obviously a lot of people are out there looking for answers. And Miss Vicky is only too happy to provide them - whether you ask her directly or not.
do massage parlour keep cctv tapes
Miss Vicky is not sure why you would need to know this, but if you feel compelled to ask, she will suggest you try more.... shall we say.... genteel forms of stress release. Like lawn bowling. Or tai chi. Or blogging.
field trip ideas that stink
Again, we're not sure why this is important. But Miss Vicky recalls one childhood visit to a sugar beet factory. I suppose it would have been fascinating were it not for the horrible odor, which stuck with her for days.
why are pharmacists disrespected?
Perhaps because there are no longer soda fountains at pharmacies. Anyone who service root beer floats and creamy milkshakes deserves the respect of their neighbours. When pharmacies began selling tacky souvenirs instead of creamy treats, they were bound to slide in peoples' regard.

You slept with the groom. Or the bride. Or both. Too many glasses of champagne inevitably result in weepy moments in the loo. Or worse, on the dance floor. I could go on.....

Easy: don't be jerks.
how to open frozen car doors This question is probably better put to the Canadian Tire Guy. When they invent cordless hair dryers Miss Vicky will let you know. The Webgeek suggests that frozen locks can be opened by dipping your key into a hot cup o' Timmy's. Or Bridgehead. Or just plain boiling water. Of course, having spent her formative years in Winnipeg, Miss Vicky recalls several instances when it wasn't just the lock that was frozen. In fact, one reader of this blog may recall a certain Christmas church event that ended with Miss Vicky crawling through the hatchback of a chilly Honda Civic to open the doors from the inside. Wasn't too easy with the vintage dress and all.
what to wear for cocktails & canapes
Speaking of vintage dresses... they would do quite nicely, assuming one does not have to crawl through the hatchback of a Honda Civic. Miss Vicky finds hers at vintage stores and has a strappy pair of black pumps suitable for most ensembles.

The Webgeek looked that one up, since he brought up melamine in the first place. It absorbs the heat and can blister, crack or soften. Eeew. See here for other handy melamine hints.
