    Besides when I was in St. Louis, I've never traveled west of the Mississippi.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I wish I could spend my vacations engaging in whatever behavior my id desired but experience no consequences for it afterwards.

    Don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon, but I'll let y'all know if it does.

    I like beef jerky of all flavors. I will even eat Walmart brand.

    My confession. I don't think there is any behavior that I would ever even want to engage in that would result in a negative consequence. I think I'm a fun person, just play it safe, definately nothing illegal.

    I really want to eat a Mexican meal extravaganza that has about 500 carbs in it

    I have not gone public with my bun in the oven news to my wider circle of acquaintances and friends because I don't want to answer 1001 narrow minded questions that I know will just piss me off. So I've told you fine folks, family, and close friends in the area. And I am perfectly ok with that

    I went to Sex Toy Bingo last night. Didn't win anything but it was a lot of fun

    I've caught myself several times inadvertently drinking burgundy-style wines from bordeaux-style glasses...and vice versa...but I never reported my faux pas to the appropriate authorities.

    I just spent probably two hours reading this thread at work, because I am currently working on a supremely boring project and I just can’t get back to it… after all, I spent nearly an hour on it this morning…

    I don't think that I really work very hard. I really, really don't.

    I don't think khaki pants go with blue shirts. Not an ensemble for me.

    I was a lot funnier 9 years ago.

    After we complete the purchase of our new house, a small percentage of me is ready to just walk away from our house in Grand Rapids. Even though we'd be able to afford both houses, I'm sick of basically lighting my money on fire every month when we make the house payment.

    We have two boys. I think that's preferable, because when they're old enough, with boys you only have to worry about one schlong; with girls you have to worry about all of them.

    Yeah, but girls are a lot more forward and aggressive these days. You'll find out when they are blowing up the phone and Internets with IM and texting.

    I guess I don't get the crux of what you're saying. Are you saying it's OK for boys to have as much sex as they want? Or that it's OK for boys to have sex because they're not the ones getting pregnant? I hope you're sons never have an unplanned pregnancy.

    Crushes and flirting is what makes the world fun. Nothing wrong with a little crush

    I recently changed which female coworker I have a crush on. I feel a little guilty about "dumping" the other one. But, on the other hand and being realistic and honest, neither would really care one way or the other.
