  4. Once-at a now defunct department store-they actually sold small rolls of this labeled as stress reliever. Pop the bubbles. I bought some for my sister. It didn't work. She's still an ass.

  13. I remembered getting excited about Farrah being in Playboy. Didn't know she did another shoot, this time with the wrap. I was a boy when that famous '77 poster was released...so imagine harboring a crush for so long. ;)
