I've only lost my sanity
Posted by Social Neanderthal on Thu, 01/08/2004 - 11:59am.
I guess one of the advantages of being married for 20 years is I still have most of my stuff, just not my sanity. [which could be another advantage, depending upon your point of view]

I'll just have to live with my 'Stud for Hire' tee shirt mysteriously vanishing into the clothes hamper, never to be seen or heard from again.
Losing it
Posted by marinerd on Tue, 01/06/2004 - 3:57pm.
I lost a house once, but I got some Pink Floyd LPs.
I have...
Posted by paul on Tue, 01/06/2004 - 4:49pm.
...several Pink Floyd bootlegs, from their pre-Dark Side days. And I have a CD burner.

If you want to know more, email me. *gryn*
Missing items
Posted by Monk on Tue, 01/06/2004 - 2:14pm.
Well, personally I have lost two irons, one hair dryer, one dustvac and almost a car (luckily i was able to get out of that contract).

In exchange, I have been left numerous t-shirts, several mismatched earrings and more panties than I care to remember.

The latter items of course make for some interesting discoveries by new young ladies....

Posted by paul on Tue, 01/06/2004 - 3:15pm.
I also have discovered earrings left behind. What do you do with them?

BTW, Monk, welcome back. You've been missed.
Posted by Monk on Tue, 01/06/2004 - 3:40pm.
eventually have to dump them. The calls get to be somewhat caddy

"Britney, I found your earrings....Oh....not yours?"

"Frieda, ummmm...did you lose an earring?"

And, of course if they can't remember whom to call about a lost earring, well then that says something too. Not to mention the 'ewwww' factor of giving them to someone else to wear.

In one go, I lost the Best of Tom Petty video collection, American Beauty Deluxe Edition, a handful of books, and a couple CDs.

And I gained the knowledge that if you think she's the perfect girl for you, chances are damn good that you're into her waaaay more than she's into you.
The skirt was for a Halloween
Posted by Obsidiana on Sun, 01/04/2004 - 2:40pm.
The skirt was for a Halloween costume, but the make-up was for day-to-day wear.

My ex never gave me back all

My ex never gave me back all the make-up I loaned him. Or the skirt. Okay, granted, I told him he could keep the skirt, but I would think that when he dumped me for my best friend and probably got rid of it anyway I might've gotten it back.
Posted by ParU on Fri, 01/02/2004 - 2:13pm.
Boy am I out of touch...
Obs you loaned your ex-BF make-up and a skirt????
Methinks I'm seriously out in left field. No guy, in my experience (or my kids experience either, that I know of), wears make-up unless he's in a play or it's 'Zit' make-up. But then I guess them New Yorkers were always a little different from us old-fashioned Californians.
Why next thing you know those liberals in New York City will allow women to vote and get jobs and who knows what that'll lead to?
Posted by peegee on Fri, 01/02/2004 - 2:43pm.
ParU, remember that Obs is somewhat intrigued with all things gothic, which, at times, calls for gender independent, mostly black and white facial make-up, afair. And even skirts for (not necessarily scottish ?) boys.

Here, ParU. A crash course for ya. (Work safe, if somewhat bizzarre.)
Partial friday song
Posted by steff on Fri, 01/02/2004 - 10:53am.
i realize it's probably being overplayed to distraction across the country, and just because i tend not to listen to the radio is no reason to subject the rest of you to a tune you've probably heard 3 times in the last hour or so.

but, i do SO like audioslave. *grin*

i am not your rolling wheels, i am the highway.
i am not your carpet ride, i am the sky.
i am not your blowing wind, i am the lightning.
i am not your autumn moon, i am the night.

besides, this is the one that finally got don henley's "heart of the matter" outta my head. gah!

happy first friday, everyone!

Is the sequence of events supposed to help in determining the cause of it?
What if he stole it before---does that mean he's a cheapskate and if after, he's vindictive? O_o

How'd She Know?

If woman #1 blurted "he stole your blowdryer!" just by looking at woman #2's hair style, the emotional trauma present here might be extremely high.

When did Whole Foods start selling hair dryers?
Posted by ParU on Wed, 12/31/2003 - 10:53am.
oogie - women talk about their hair constantly, even in places where they don't sell hair accoutrements.
Why yes, yes we do.
Posted by Kris the Girl on Wed, 12/31/2003 - 11:21am.
Or, you know, not. Plus, nothing in the quote is about "hair" so much as "he stole something of mine."

I bet he's going to invent a toaster that delivers toast to the breakfast table by means of a simple pneumatic tube system. I'd like one of those.
Posted by brian65401 on Tue, 12/30/2003 - 2:57pm.
I've got one of those!!! I yell "Honey! We need more toast!"

That is usually followed by flying toast and a blast of hot air.

Trust me, it is easier and safer to go get the toast.

Reminds me of the guy in the bar who was telling the bar tender about how embarrassed he was because he'd been to the train station and went to buy tickets to pittsburgh. He was confronted by a gorgeous attendant and said "Can I please have two tickets to tittsburgh."

The next guy overheard him and said, "Yeah, I've done that. I was sitting at the breakfast table and went to ask her to pass me the butter, but what came out was 'you're ruining my F&%^$#! Life!'"

Cap'n brian, cute. (And so is your toast delivery system too, I'll bet). 0.5 cool pts.
Blow dryer?

Ooohh, this is a subject near and dear to some people's heart... And FP!
