Some Men Would Do Just About Anything To Be Invited to This

At the Robin Hood Foundation's charity auction in New York last year, the most coveted prize wasn't the slumber party with Britney Spears, or the skating lessons from Olympic gold medalist Sarah Hughes. It was a package called "Yeah, Baby!" that included a trip to the Bahamas and a dozen tickets to the annual Victoria's Secret lingerie fashion show. The winning bid, from five couples, was $560,000.

OK, call me anything you like, I would have gone for the slumber party with Britney.

I will leave now, with that thought dancing in my head, pushing all thoughts of work out of my mind until at least lunchtime...

Yep... VERY sexy underwear. I would think a guy would like a woman more with some decolletage than her being completely in the buff. After all, something should be left to one's imagination BEFORE turning up the heat in bed... :)

"Some Men Would Do Just About Anything To Be Invited to This"

Bah I ain't saying I would do anything for a ticket.

However, "whacking" (as in the Soprano's context) Michael Moore or some other Hollywood lefty is not necessarily a deal-breaker either.

One is half-way in already. Just push her in, jump in after and lock the doors.
Less of a hassel than trying to talk the other girls into getting in.

well let's see. one could ride on your lap, and two or three could sit on each others lap in the passenger seat, so you'd have to choose which two you want to leave behind.

Of course in that car, you could get to your destination, drop off the four, and get back for the other two in no time at all.

It would be a fun ride no matter how you worked it.

:-))

C'mon, after parties are always the most fun - whether it's movie shoots, recording sessions, lingerie modeling, or concrete pours.

Most of my experience is with the latter.

Awwww, hell, give me an gutsy, intelligent, conservative honey like US Rep. Katherine Harris and I would be in serious heaven...Man, I am still stunned how good looking she's become since 2000 elections. She's done some serious makeover since then. Yeah, yeah, I know she's married.

Just looking at these poor girls makes me so unhappy, they are so thin, nearly malnourished. I'd like to volunteer my time to
personally to cook for them... As a Chef, I am uniquely qualified to handle them myself, it's a sacrifice, but I'm willing to do it.. :)

Now, don't get me started...

That's no fun! Wrapping up a major pour at 11 PM with a crew of Newfies and natives somehow lends itself to a party atmosphere.

And don't forget roof parties - I remember a few big ones in my salad days. No semi-clad damselles, however. ;^)

Could these be the pearly gates we've heard so much about?

OK, snap out of it: We present these items for your consideration:

* * *

A man dies and goes to heaven.

As he's standing in line, the pearly gates slam open and a man charges out.

He's dressed in a scrub suit and a white lab-coat, with a stethoscope around his neck.

He knocks over most of the people standing in line in his rush to move through the crowd.

The man asked St. Peter, "Who was that?"

St. Peter answered "That's just God. Sometimes he likes to play doctor."

* * *

Three doctors died and went to the Pearly Gates to be interviewed to see
where they would end up.

St. Peter asked the first one what he did on earth, and he said he was an obstetrician.
St. Peter asked what an obstetrician did and the doctor told him.
"Sounds pretty good; okay you can go in to Heaven."

The second doctor said he was a pediatrician and had to explain what that involved.
St. Peter said, "Sounds very useful, very good. You can go in, too."

The third doctor said he was the chief man in charge of a whole HMO conglomerate.
"Well, what's that?" asked St. Peter. So the doctor told him exactly what that involved.
"Sounds very important, very useful. You can go in, too."

So the third doctor goes through the Gates and starts to walk up the stairs.
St. Peter turns and calls after him, "Oh, by the way, you can only stay three days."

* * *

Three nuns who had recently died where on their way to heaven.

At the pearly gates they were met by St. Peter.

Around the gates there was a collection of lights and bells.

St. Peter stopped them and told them that they would each have to answer a question
before they could enter through the pearly gates.

St. Paul: "What were the names of the two people in the garden of Eden?"
1st nun: "Adam and Eve"
The lights flashed, the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates.

St. Paul: "What did Adam eat from the forbidden tree?"
2nd nun: "An apple"
The lights flashed, the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates.

And finally it came the turn of the last nun.

St. Paul: "What was the first thing Eve said to Adam?"
After a few minutes thinking, she says "Gosh, that's a hard one!"
The lights flashed, the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates!

I'll take that as an endorsement, if I may. Incidentally, but cognizant of the need not to overwhelm,
I do have an encore -- should you find the time and inclination:

"Feelings

"Autumn Leaves"

"Come Fly With Me"

"The Folsom Prison Blues"

"I'm Lookin' Over a Four Leaf Clover"

And BTW, I really appreciated the help you gave me with Netscape fonts! Happy Cooking!
