    Hey bro,
    I've been sharing this with my co-workers! It's very interesting as well as amusing. Keep sending it and I'll keep sharing it. Talk to you later.


  5. amen to #48. and maybe you've noticed it's always in that unnatural for anyone "sunset" color. I don't know why they still make that color, it hasn't been popular since the golden girls.

  6. I have to say, I am impressed! You are truly an imspiration and your zest for life is utterly refreshing. I'm taking notes! :)

  7. This is great information, but you know how I feel about that Michael Ealy. Anyway, I will have to save it in case I out and I need to find you a quick gift or treat. Mounds is keeper. About the leggings, I only have one question: "Does anything ever really go out of style?" I suggest we take good care of our apparel we never know when we will need it again.


  8. I enjoyed this blog! Keep them coming!

  9. 5. Napoleon Dynamite was very funny. I agree.
    16. My sister LOVES how Joan dresses, but I prefer Lynn.
    18. I totally agree.
    32. Target and Payless totally rock.
    34. I also hate pantyhose. I dread wearing them.
    42. I love The Hills
    44. Jessica sucks. Nick rocks.
    I learned alot!

  10. I absolutely LOVE Women who wear Pantyhose, they are sooo sexy. I don't understand why women can wear and put on other things that are uncomfortable, but when it comes to Pantyhose they'd rather die :-(. I can say that from a male perspective, mostly all men like when a woman is wearing hosiery (in good taste). We find them pleasing to the eye & to the touch... The only men who don't like women to wear hosiery are 'horn-dogs' who feel like hosiery is just another barrier between them & the 'Promise-Land'
