No, I'm not saying you're crazy. :smile: And please, don't beat me, since the last thing I need is to be beaten up by a Christmas tree. :biggrin:

You've just got to see if you can add a couple of strings of battery-operated LEDs to that outfit, Ruth! The more you resemble a Christmas tree, the larger the pile of gifts heaped around you. :biggrin:

Which you will use for..? :biggrin:
I thought it might be good for those new members who only post once and run away. It would slow them down a little.

They're quicker than you, at least I assume they are. :biggrin:

I also wouldn't mind a new boyfriend, one that is intelligent for once, that I can talk to.
There's a longer waiting list for those than for the PS3! If you weren't so fussy, demanding one that's both intelligent AND you can talk to, Santa might be able to scrounge up something for under your tree, but if you're going to ask for the impossible, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed yet again. :rolleyes:

Now, let's not overdo things. :wink:

OK, now I want a time machine and a round-trip ticket to NZ to cover that similarly unsatisfactory gap from my junior year of HS to my sophomore year of college. I've got to come back in time to meet my wife, though. :biggrin:


I think I can find a DeLorean....

I'm debating whether to buy for myself the new 8gig iPod nano, or a new 30gig iPod video. They both share the same cost. Hmm

EDIT: What am I still doing on PF? It's 1:46am and I have loads of homework left.

:surprised Surely it isn't that impossible and that maybe I can just get bumped up the waiting list

It was a weird time for me. I had girlfriends (one of which was a Miss Maine runner-up) during that period that were attractive and were nice to me, but were no fun to talk to. When I got to college, I sometimes found girlfriends that were as smart as hell and fun to talk to, but we didn't really click. It's a mystery. Maybe my biological and real ages didn't line up...who knows?

Anyway, I would love to travel down-under, but I have a severe sensitivity to the chemicals in fragranced perfumes, colognes, and personal-care products, as well as detergents and fabric softeners (respiratory difficulty, migraines, extreme hypertension, and severe joint pain.) My cousin and his wife spent 5-6 years in the Melbourne area and wanted us to share vacations with them in New Guinea, New Zealand, and Tasmania, and I would dearly have loved for us to join them, except that I would have been taken off the plane in a body bag. Their photographs made me ache to join them.

So what sort of woman did you end up marrying?
I always end up with the real boys boy and it never works out. I don't want to just be there to show off to his mates and clean up after him.

Thats a shame! So can't you travel overseas at all? I couldn't imagine my life with out travelling Have you always been so sensitive to chemicals?

I found a nice local girl that shared a lot of my interests. We've been together for 31 years, now. This picture is from 1976.

I can't even go into a supermarket, with all the fragranced cosmetics and cleaning supplies they sell. Getting on an airplane with the general public would be suicide. The problem started about ten years ago, when I had to share office space with a woman who doused herself in fragrances every day, and work with other women throughout the day that did likewise. I found a new job, but eventually I needed an assistant, so the boss saddled me with his girlfriend who came to work made up like Barbie every day, and pretty soon I was VERY sick. I couldn't get her to stop wearing fragranced cosmetics and the boss wouldn't make her stop. I tried to hang in there because I needed the job and it paid well (incentives for performance), but that was a stupid thing to do. Now years later, my immune system "turns on me" when I get anywhere near fragrances. BTW, many "unscented" products are loaded with masking fragrances, and those are particularly nasty. Anybody that wonders why children seem to have more asthma and behavioral problems these days ought to look at this list:

We are soul-mates and look forward to all of our time together. If you cannot find a guy that makes you that happy, DON'T SETTLE. Keep your own council, mix, and keep it light. It will happen.

Best regards.

One more thing...if your BF/GF (for both men or women) cannot keep your confidences, cannot treat you with special care as a friend, and does not think of YOUR best interests when planning a trip, party, or even a casual get-together, you should ditch them ASAP. Your relationship is only as solid as their need, and that is a pitiful way to live.

My Christmas wish is for:

- Brazilian base drums, congas
- New clients thru my business
- Brain surgery, a new shunt that works as advertised
- A long long roll in the hay with a hottie
- A trip to a place such as Rio
