    flashing - I sometimes flash Mr. Cloud when we are in Lowe's. Only in Lowe's. Not sure why. Probably because we go there for long periods of time and I get bored.

    setting someone on fire - I haven't done this, but when I was in high school there was a girl whose hair caught on fire during the senior assembly (all the seniors were carrying candles). Think big, poofy, late 1980's hairstyles with several quarts of hairspray. The girl was fine, but it sure stunk up the gym.

    Midge, our resolution is going to be very hard. I just so love to leave without making my bed. However, I got a gorgeous new bedspread on Saturday (a real bedspread, not a comforter), which means that it will force me to do a proper made bed every day.

    If I just had one big empty closet where I could fling things into, I'd be happy.

    On a separate note, while heading to the barn the other day I made a big swining detour to South Coast Plaza and saw the most DIVINE shoes in the window at Armani (even nicer than the ones at Jimmy Choo a few stores down). And then I thought, "Where the hell would I wear those to?" So another resolution is to get out more in 2003. I think I spent too much of this year being a hermit. It was a phase thing, that phase is now over.

    You can't measure the cost of the shoes against board; rather, amortize the cost against the number of years that you'll wear them. I've justified many a purchase that way and can happily chortle, 'hey, it only cost me a $100 a year!".

    Heineken, I hear ya. I've often been known to take my dresses out on dates. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Speaking of hair bands, our best friend's brother (and childhood chum of Hans') was in several in Toronto and has since reloked to L.A. with his wife. They've a band, Powder, whose self-released CD has just been voted one of the best of 2002 by Rolling Stone magazine. The wife, BTW, used to be a dancer-of-the-nude-arts and wears a leather bustier with built-in headlights - and we ain't talking any headlights but those from a '70's Mustang. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hey! Buy the shoes and wear it to one of their L.A. gigs!

    No, Coreene! No, No, no!!!! Let me tell you the 'big' closet story.

    Mr. Midge and I move into a house with big, albeit porrly designed closets, a spare room, an office and a greenhouse.

    We have now lived here six years. In that time, we have filled the closets, the office, the spare room and the greenhouse with STUFF! We have also built a storage shed for tools and Mr. Midge's hobbies that is just as full. The rule is you will fill all available space!

    Now, back to being on topic. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] I have danced on bars and in bars and in the back of a pickup truck, among other places. I have flashed Mr. Midge, but never in Lowe's. I'll have to think about that...

    Wasn't that one of the running gags in the movie, "This is Spinal Tap"? No wait, it was just the drummers, not the entire band.

    I have danced on a bar.
    I have danced in a car.
    I have danced in the rain.
    I have danced 'til I'm insane.
    I do not like green eggs and ham,
    I do not like them, Sa....

    Hey, wait a minute. Who does this chick think she's fooling? She'll eat green eggs and ham. She'll eat anything, as long as it's dead first, and even then it's a toss up. But I'll give her one thing. She can dance.

    I've been meaning to email you the breast-placement instructions.

    Here ya go.

    Put bra on, bend at waist, stick your hand into the cup, grab one of the puppies and hoist 'em up.

    Alternatively, you can duct tape the fallen heroes from the underside and put the bra on - resulting in a nice little Mount Decolletage. Just don't duct tape should you decide to venture on a flash-and-procure mission at Lowe's.

    Why, my lil' melons are, as Willem would say, "gefixed" at least a few times a day by sticking both hands into bra and moving 'em into place.

    Of course, it is so embarrassing when my coworker walks past my Work Stall to his and sees it, but he is used to it by now. I just shout "Adjust, adjust!"

    Maybe we need to start attaching photos of cute men as well.

    My roomate owns 7 pairs of skis. Everytime you open our big closet ski poles beyond counting rain down upon your head while the ski themselves all slither out past your feet and head for parts unknown across the linoleum floor.

    Our other big closet houses, primarily, a vast array of duffle bags, backpacks, stuff bags and tents. So basically we store storage there.

    Our other other big closet has nothing in it b/c it makes everyhting smell like mothballs. I recently discovered that this was because my roomate has been storing mothballs on the bottom shelf [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Our two other other other big closets are more tunnel like tha anything and have tiny hobbit size doors so we can only put small things in them and we can't get anything back out without getting a headlamp and going crawling. So they are full of empty cardboard boxes and spiders for the most part.

    Everything else lives in big piles in the living room where we can find it.

    Random fact of HN73's household.

    We have three headlights.

    Two people, but three headlights.

    Well Coreene, nothing wrong with that, considering how many men *SCRATCH* their nether-regions in PLAIN VIEW of anyone and everyone.

    So why can't we women *adjust*?

    All right, I have to admit I'm very curious about this duct tape thing. Seeing as how I'm fairly well endowed, 'the girls' could use a little extra support now and then - but I'm a little afraid - how do you get the darn stuff off without mucho pain???

    Danced on a bar? No (would probably knock my 5'11" coconut on something).

    Danced on tables in a club? You bet.

    Another secret confession. In between my usual shows this year I showed western pleasure for a lark with a friend's horse [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    Confession part II: I loved the Swarovski crystals on the black vest with red ultrasuede patterned yoke and zebra piping, not to mention the fringy chaps! Swank! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

    There are 3 brand new riding/boarding/training stables with indoor arenas up or going up this year within 10 minutes drive of where I board.

    It's a good thing I live in Canada, earning Canadian dollars, with a Canadian shipping address, as that ethically limits the amount of crap I can acquire off of Ebay in US dollars.

    Why is it that, as a freelance 'artist' of sorts, my contracts are always keeping me totally consumed when there are other fun things to do with life? There's never any exciting times to be had during business lulls.

    My car resembles a Tim Horton's cup graveyard. Even though I swore up and down that "the new car deserves some respect - I'll never let it look the way the old 1985-mobile does". Right.

    My home office does not have enough filing space and I've resorted to the strategic piling method of paper sorting. My tack box has a spot for everything.

    Men playing guitars-I always thought that the look on their face while they did this was probably the same look on their face they would have during sex.

    As far as flashing, lets just say I have a bead or two from Mardi Gras.
