The perspective makes it look like I’m about 3 times bigger than her.

She and her other cohorts were handing out pamphlets to some sort of den of iniquity and perversion. We wisely stayed away.

She’s dressed up as a French maid, with a bodice piece and everything.

That doesn’t scream out “fetish” to you?

You’re not that naive. A flock of young girls dressed up as maids standing on conspicuous corners in the busy “electronics” area of Tokyo on a Saturday afternoon, handing out pamphlets featuring pictures of girls as maids and directions to their shop.

I’m not sure what they are selling, but it’s not cleaning services.

did anyone see glenn yesterday? med students with bleeding hearts all in favor of obams care so as to cover as many uninsured as possible. the grizzled headed experienced docs were all agin’ it, having a better idea of what gov’t involvement means.

I got home just as Glenn Beck was coming on-I was blown away by how clueless and starry-eyed the students were compared to the veteran docs. I’d be interested in hearing what they’ll have to say on the subject after a few years in the medical practice, paying malpractice insurance and a threatened lawsuit or two...

My brother is bringing his carpenter neighbor over to (hopefully) buy the heavy duty woodworking equipment Mr.T5 used to make cabinets and furniture. I’m selling all those big saws and stuff that I don’t know how to use, and are dangerous for anyone who isn’t a pro. The planers, skill saws, sanders, scroll saw, etc I have mastered and will keep-they will be needed when building another house.

Bro called to say he and the neighbor are on the way, and that the neighbor is towing his shop trailer, so I guess he means to buy-yippee!

That is good news indeed. You want that well-loved and used equipment to go where they will be used and cared for appropriately. Plus, it will free up a lot of space for you.
It feels like winter here today. It is gray and in the 40s, with a chill wind. The spouse is mowing for what he hopes will be the second to last time until spring.

i don’t know, i guess i didn’t expect all med students to be sheeple and that some might have some political savvy so as to realize that the gov’t is not the answer to all problems.
