Félix (habitseven) Oh no, Barb!

My air conditioning broke early today. I had to pay the service tech to come out at Sunday rates to replace a $24 part. Total bill was $209.


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Barb is this a good thing for you or bad? I would like to be unemployed but I can't afford to be.

Tee hee!

Bummer about the air conditioner Larry.


message 5: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Yup. Thanks. Could've been a lot worse.

I've started painting the interior of our house this weekend, it needs a spruce up. I don't like the colour I chose. Thankful I only purchased a sample to start with. It looked nice until I started painting. The colour was Antique White USA. On the walls it looks kinda grey.


message 7: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I hate painting. I would rather have someone beat me.

Hope you find the right color colour.

Good luck, Barb. I'm glad to hear getting laid off was actually a good thing for you...

I can relate, Gail. Once you start painting it always looks different from the swatch. Painting is hard. I found that it used most of my muscle groups, which I wasn't expecting. Still, I'd rather paint than be beaten.


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I am not sure which I would prefer. I think the beating, it would be over with much faster. I hope I find the right colour quickly, the sample pots cost $11.00. :(

Félix (habitseven) The motorcycles and fireworks are quite loud in the city this evening. Stupid fireworks. Stupid motorcycles.

Isn't a little early for 4th July celebrations?


message 13: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) It goes on all weekend.

Parades will generally be tomorrow. Fireworks, tonight and tomorrow night. Picnics, constantly.

Helena | 1058 comments I'm jealous Barb! Best of luck to you & enjoy your summer. sigh.

I applied for a new job recently- it would be THE job for someone like me. Close to home, I'd rarely have to work weekends or nights, and I'd pretty much be able to make my own schedule. It's significantly more money too, plus I'd get to keep my pension & benefits. It's rare that they hire from outside, however- so I'm not holding my breath.

since the 4th falls on Monday this year, most of the big fireworks shows have already happened. wouldn't want to inconvenience someone who had to get up and go to work Tuesday am (like me!)
like LG said, pretty much the entire weekend beginning Friday afternoon has been a big party/bbq. my white trash/red neck fireworks were a blast!

Most all of my bras were purchased in the mid to late 90s, with the exception of my one bra purchased for my wedding.

My one white one just bit the dust out of nowhere, the wire came jamming into my right breast. Damn it all. Can't my bra randomly break two months AFTER my paychecks begin, not before?

Well they are nearly teenagers...

I took out an unworn bra recently that I'd bought a looooong time ago. I'm not sure how long, but more than 5 years. Possibly as long as 10 years. I cut off the tags and put it on. That night when I took it off, all the rubbery elastic bits had disintegrated onto my skin and I had to throw out the bra and cleanse myself.


message 26: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) did you even need a bra in the mid 90's Sallers?! Geez, I buy bras a couple of times a year. Maybe because I wear a uniform, I like to change up what is underneath.


message 27: by Helena (new)

Helena | 1058 comments Thanks all for your kind wishes! :D

I can’t believe your bras last that long Sally! I buy a whole slew of new bras at least every two years. I have some ‘fancier’ strapless or special occasion type bras that I’ve had longer. What kind do you buy??

I just got a few new ones from La Vie En Rose with magnetic front closures that are working out surprisingly well. Not sure if they sell them in the US, but they do have a website. They’re called magnetic attraction or something.

Did anyone else buy these Natori bras which have a clear plastic connector at the front? They actually hook in the back, though. I thought for sure the plastic part would break, but I've had two of these for at least 3 years and they're still going strong.

Well, Petra and Helena, I barely ever wear the things, or when I do I tend to wear one day in and day out for weeks.

But I did spend the last two years first gaining 50 pounds and then losing 50 pounds, so it's been a while since I've fit into this one.

We always want what we can't have, *sigh.* I spent most of my teenage years wishing I wasn't built like a boy, but I'm coming to like myself more these days. My bras last quite a while, since they don't have a lot of strain, lol. I do have a wonderbra for the occasional bit of oomph.

I'm glad I don't have tiny titties, but I can't imagine needing multiple new bras a few times a year either!

message 40: by ~Geektastic~ (new)

 ~Geektastic~ (atroskity) | 3207 comments Is there a special brain (boob?) sensor that allows guys to know when the boobs are being discussed and/or shown? Or is it just luck? I think my husband and roommate can sense it in the air one floor up and down the hall from the TV.

why can't we invent a wire bound penis holder that will prop in a horribly uncomfortably manner a man's unit up in the air so that it's length and girth is constantly on display for interested individuals to admire/analyze/enjoy at their leisure?

It would have to have some flexibility, as the length and girth change on a nearly constant basis.

Mary (merrussell) Isn't that why they invented velcro?

I thought that women wore bras in part because if everything was bouncing all around women could get uncomfortable. A penis, on the other hand, can bounce around all day without any ill effects.

Heavy haulers.

Yes and no. For those who have a lot of bounce-age to worry about, they're utilitarian. For those of us who don't, it's expected for propriety's sake more than utility. Or just to make it look like we have more than we really do, which for some guys I guess could be a plus to the penis-bra.
