What do you think guys is she hot or what?

Welcome to my party -- now pay up!

Think twice before accepting an invitation to a party. That's the lesson Tonya Bowman, 39, learned recently after a birthday bash for a newfound acquaintance at a pricey sushi restaurant.
While Bowman ordered economically -- rice, miso soup and tea -- everyone else acted as if money were no object.
"When the bill came," Bowman says, the birthday girl "smiled and made a big production by way of a toast, saying, 'Thank you all so much for my lovely birthday dinner. I really do appreciate it. You guys are great. Here's to you!' Then she just sat there, waiting for us to decide how to split the bill."
The bill for the birthday girl and her seven "guests" came to a whopping $3,450, which someone suggested splitting evenly. That worked out to $500 per person, plus tip.
"I almost started crying," says Bowman, a municipal employee in Oakland, California. "My heart was racing; my face felt hot. I was embarrassed, humiliated and angry for having been put in that position in the first place. I wasn't told that I would be helping to pay for her dinner."
When the bill was being passed around, Bowman panicked. "I simply put down $50 near my plate and excused myself to go to the restroom," she says. "I walked right by the restroom and out the front door."
The acquaintance sent Bowman an angry e-mail.
"She wanted me to know that I totally ruined her birthday dinner because she ended up having to cover the $450 that I was supposed to pay. She said she had planned to use that money on a spa day for her birthday and now she couldn't because of me. She asked if I could please pay her back, and if I didn't have the money right now, that was OK, because she would be willing to make payment arrangements with me.

Man Refuses To Move Toilets
Hank Robar sees the toilets and urinals as a form of art.
But Code Enforcement Officer John Hill says the toilets pose a safety risk and violate the village’s bulky waste law.
"I’m going to write the ticket and let the judge take care of it." said Hill.
Hill says while he thinks the toilet issue is "being blown way out proportion", he says Robar is "being treated no different than anyone else in the village."
When you drive along Potsdam’s Market Street, there’s a row of nine porcelain toilets on Fred "Hank" Robar’s lawn.
There are also five urinals attached to a multi-colored garage.
He claims the village is singling him out.
"As far as Mr. Robar being singled out, absolutely not. I think we’ll be going after everyone to meet the law," said Potsdam Mayor Ron Tischler.
Two years ago, Robar wanted the property rezoned from residential to commercial so it could be used for a convenience store or fast food outlet.
But village officials refused and his plans went down the toilet.

Puppy Eats Six Pounds Of Rocks, Lives
A dog in Bangor, Maine, ate six pounds of rocks and lived to bark about it.
The owners of the dog "Chester" said the rocks were around their new grill. The food drippings attracted him, but they didn't realize it until it was too late.
Chester's owners rushed him to the veterinarian.
"I didn't think he'd survive, they said his chances of survival were very slim," Chester's owner said.
The vet said she has seen dogs eat a rock or two, but never six pounds.
Chester passed all the rocks naturally and is now at home safe.
"I hope he sticks to dog food," the owner's son said.
