And my Amazing Zoink-Meter (I explain this in my first prediction article) has decided to continually relive those special moments of the past like the high school football studs that do the same. It replays those times of inspiration ? babes in bikinis, chilled babes wearing wet bikini tops, Elisabeth and Amber kissing and fondling each other (ok, we added this one on our own), babes washing themselves, and babes eating gross stuff (because if a babe can swallow cow intestines and worms, she can swallow anything, if you know what I mean).

Ever since the Web spawned the vision of a vast digital mall, entrepreneurs and engineers have been scrambling to invent correspondingly new forms of digital currency and cash-like payment systems. But the credit card-hitched as it is to Byzantine bank and credit authorization networks-today accounts for more than 90 percent of online purchases, and most of these innovations have bombed. Back in 1995, First Virtual Holdings began offering a clunky form of digital money through credit cards, allowing consumers to use approved account codes to buy online goods.

Rachel handed me a piece of notebook paper. On it she and Hugh had listed the exact time of every contraction. Now, you have to remember that I’m a maternity nurse. Labor doesn’t make me as nervous as it does most people. I smiled, noted that they had been regular for less than an hour, and went back to bed. I would be needing whatever sleep I could get.
