    I'm not even going to lie. I do absolutely nothing. I've got nobody in my life right now, so I just don't even bother. I might trim the, uh, length of hair, but for the most part, it's wild and untamed.

    Now I'm going to disappear for a few weeks. Heh.

    Am thrilled to see that 50% of the voting population thus far has the Vegas concrete (including myself).

    Every time I see 'fur bikini' I can't stop laughing.

    Vajazzled up for special occasions-- you know, sequins to match the cocktail dress and/or to help the drunk guy find his way after the party.

    I don't know how to answer as I'm in the process of contemplating relandscaping. You know from HGTV, that's a job that takes some forethought and prep.

    No need to hide, I keep the lawn trimmed and edged on a regular basis. Never was one for a concrete walkway, and am too cheap to pay a gardner for something I can do myself.

    Look, I'm lucky if I can keep my head on and my wits about me. If I look down I get vertigo. So I have no clue what is happening there. It's like I'm an absentee landlord.

    Okay, I'll play!


    Big fan of the landing strip here. Worst experience I ever had was with an aesthetician who either misunderstood me or I communicated wrong, because before I knew it, I was well on the way to Vegas Concrete and there was no turning back unless I wanted to have half a landing strip...Aaaaack!!!

    OMG...do a google search using the word "vajazzle". Make sure you are not in a public place when you do it...

    I had no idea, I thought MVP was making up a new word!!

    sadly, after all these years, that thing has haired up and grown over. I can't even think about using the ol' gal unless several conditions are met. Kid has to be way asleep or even better, gone. Freshly showered, shaved and within the inner limits of lawn maintenance for me. Clean sheets, air conditioning and not too late or I'm just too tired. There better be nothing on my mind to distract me or poop! I'm over here mentally while you are down there.

    Poor guy, we go in stints. But mostly, the effort is just too much. Anyone want to go over to the happy marriage thread? I swear, we have a great one but at my age, being ready for the prom just ain't on my radar most of the time. That said, when I start to look like Uncle Lou's comb over, i do crack out the brush hog and head out to the back forty for an afternoon!

    Sorry, I don't think I can edit the poll and I did the maximum number of questions. Meant to do vajazzled, but did "you kids get off my lawn instead".

    winfield, you crack me up. It's like choreographing the launch of the space shuttle. Here for me, too, but most of my other friends barely need a rocket or a launching pad (snort!) and they're good to go! Ooooh well

    If we could only do this, we could be less bothered by occasional (or permanent) untidiness of the lawn:

    no doubt, bits. Poor guy, he starts checking the forecast and preparing the crew days in advance of the launch knowing full well that the lift off might get pulled right down to the last minute. Bless him...he's so patient. I'm beginning to think that the female species could very well go without sex after child birth till death.

    Au natural... but then again, I just don't grow a lot of hair anywhere below the waist... I only shave my legs once a month or so. Be jealous!
