When I was a child, my sister and I shared a room and a double bed. Any time she was......[read more]
Wow. And here I was thinking all this time that romance readers preferred their heroes to be:
(Yes -- I am filing this Important Knowledge Gleaned From a Blog in the Duh! file.)
Oops. It has just occurred to me that you might think I am replying to your estimation of yourself, not to Ms. Fake's post. Cast that thought -- if you had it -- far from your mind! And quit putting yourself down!
What, you think I'm stupid or something? :)
Andrea--I've been telling him that for at least four years.
The "quit putting yourself down" part -- not that he's stupid.
By "four," she means "five or six."
I think it is closer to six years, isn't it.
*That* is scary.
And don't say something predictable like "knowing me for ANY amount of time is scary".
You know I meant the passing of time.
Charles, you do it for the attention, don't you? ;-)
What's amusing about this, of course, is that the existence of the assertion is challenged far more fiercely than its veracity.
Well, that and the fact that an eleven-word post has thus far garnered ten comments.
Ahhh, what the hell. I always believe in balance.
Chuckles is a smart guy, just slow on the uptake.. Took him HOW LONG to move out of southside? (yeah, what they said, quit picking on yourself, ya mug)
[The dividing line between north and south is, and has been, Sheridan Avenue; I haven't lived south of Sheridan since 1993. cgh]
Terkish Payne, and you still owe us dinner, A-Hole. hee hee!
I guess if you're south of I-40 and north of Sheridan, then you might believe that north-south-line-is-at-sheridan BS. Those of us not on southside pretty much score the sand around I-40. Join us. You're one of us for sure now. Buy Corn Nuts and go visit your old neighborhood.
Terkish Payne, I think it's a law or something.
I-40 turns southeastward after the I-35 North exit; at the 7400 block east, I-40 is just south of, and not quite parallel to, Southeast 29th Street. Where I lived was more than three miles north of I-40.
Nice try, though.
(I believe we have achieved Terminal Thread Drift.)
Well, wherever you were, you're in denial now.
Terkish Payne, until it scrolls off, it's Open. :)
Well, lets just make it square, hmm?
