Good morning! I was busy yesterday, anyway ;-). 50 and cloudy this morning. The children are bratty and the pets are scowling. We’ll go to the library later.

Is your house all clean for Advent? I hope you have plenty of Restorative and pretzels!

Reasonably clean, or at least it was a week ago ;-). And I do have some pink drink and pretzels, currently.

No, you didn’t miss anything - I’m just being chirpy, so I don’t dismember anyone or commit other armed mayhem.

We won’t get above 45 today, and there is a breeze, so I doubt I will go anywhere.

I have to try and muck out some papers that are taking up much needed space, but I’m not sure my brems are up to it.

My sister wants me to go to St. George (UT) with them for Christmas, but it’s going to be three days of rowdy mayhem with at least six families. I’m just not too sure I can deal with it, but she said she had already rented a car, just so I could go, but I don’t think I want to spend that much time with so many noisy people. *sigh*

My bad.

Busdaddy went to the Top Gear website and found lots of stuff sporting The Stig. I was hoping they would have a T-shirt that said, “The Stig is my son,” but the closest they came was, “The Stig is my dad.” Ohwell...

Fraud because they thought they were going to get sex after the meal?

Certainly there was the implicit understanding that she was somehow interested in a relationship, on some level. Most guys over the age of 15 know the type.

I could do that, too! I did find a website that makes T-Shirts to order, and tried out a few styles and colors, including a hoodie, but it will have to wait till after Christmas. I may weigh even less by then...

45 with rain now, turning to snow later when it drops a few degrees before freezing.

Is it spring yet?

Jeeze, Girl...I went out this AM and even at 1030, the wind chill was at 23 degrees. I don’t have enough winter clothing for that...

I was afraid the wind tears would freeze to my cheeks.

*sigh*

I’m not equipped for LV winters, even though I’ve been here since 1987...

This thread sort of took a weird turn towards the end but after reading through all the posts, not one person questioned why on a dating site, the man would be required to pay for the woman as well.

All these women yapping about women's lib and how they need equal treatment and all that but all of that gets tossed to the side when a man offers to take them out for dinner. They just seem to assume that the man will pay. The women libbers also never complain about not having to register for the draft and they never fight with the man over who gets to deal with the overflowing toilet either, but I digress.

Now I can see the man being expected to pay for dinner if he actively courts a woman in order to win her affections. But we are talking about an online dating site, in which both parties are presumably hard up. In this case, protocol would seem to dictate that at least for the first date, that both man and woman share in the dinner bill equally.

Heh. Reminds me of the interchange between the guy who held the door for The Independent Woman. She fixed him with an icy look and said, “Tell me you aren’t holding that door because I’m a woman.” He replied, “No, Ma’am. I’m holding this door because I am a gentleman.”

Would appreciate prayers Tuesday. Am out of town for a court date dealing with a dispute on the disposition of my FIL’s assets. There’s real potential for things to turn very ugly. Pray we get through, no continuance necessary, and that the black robe in the room is inhabited by a righteous person.

I know!

I was introduced to them over the weekend. If you buy the puff pastry they are super simple to make.

Cut dough into rectangles about three inches wide and six inches long.

Wrap dough around a quarter of a chocolate bar and bake until golden brown and delicious.

Warning: they are addictive. But they make you so happy that you don't care.

Yeah.
But that’s also the state of dating in New York.
It’s pretty much “buy me stuff and I’ll do [insert activity here] for you.”

I feel sad each time I see people say that. Many very young women, nowdays, have lost all morals. Take me back to better days, lol.

Happiness is in giving, not using others, but they haven’t learned that.

I used the Pepperidge Farm brand. It was buy one get one and I had a coupon. :)

You can also make the dough but I am lazy.

Dating these days has been reduced to “mutual prostitution” pretty much.
Especially in New York where they are taught that nothing and no-one matters but them and their feelings/ self esteem.
A fine generation of sociopaths are in the works.
We’re seeing the first waves of them.

[nothing and no-one matters but them and their feelings/ self esteem.]

As you say, it is a sign of sociopaths. Those who care not a bit about others and what they are feeling. I’ve read up on that a number of times.

Obviously it must be worse in liberal areas, I’m in South Texas and it’s still pretty conservative here. I have three daughters and they are not like that.

I, unfortunately, live in New York.
Hence one reason why I asked Slings if this could be the Undead Thread for December.
Though I haven’t done the “official” ping yet.
I figured I’d let the thread go through a page or two first.

Dating In NY is... interesting.
And sometimes economically dangerous to your credit report and bottom line.
Former coworker of mine was the epitome of “psycho”.
She’d trade sex for trinkets, ‘date’ her ‘guy’ for a couple days, and be ‘seeing’ multiple men at the same time.
And she saw nothing wrong with such unhygienic behavior.
Heck, she reveled in how much of a witch she could be to everyone she worked with.
She would also call out sick to go out on her ‘dates’.
That her behavior was similar to a hookers never crossed her mind.

"- What a thread!"

It's the Undead Thread. The same one that was started by jjfate back in June of 2004.

Just like my great-uncle John's axe that once belonged to George Washington. The very same axe, although the handle had been replaced fourteen times and the head no more than five.
