    I bought a Godiva Milk Chocolate at Macy's (along with 5 Waterford Crystal ornaments) while Silver was getting her hair naturalized...I'm sure this qualifies me for membership

    I agree on this. If someone doesn't want to "see it in writing", then they shouldn't "put it in writing"....

    Rest assured, if someone sends me a highly offensive PM, I have no problem with the possibility of posting it out in the 'light of day'

    ...but then, as a married man on a women's forum, I make it a point of avoiding the use of PMs

    Chocolate's good. Especially the 86% stuff I keep stashed in my drawer at work. Wine not so good. Beer good. Champagne excellent. whee, I'm beginning to look forward to Christmas parties...

    me too, CC - But i am BIG on chocolate


    This thread has certainly taken on a life of its own. I think PM's can be quoted. Is there a LAW that says you can't??
    I think men should be able to post here. Now hanging here is another thing entirely, my DH acts like I'm asking him to wear makeup whenever I suggest he read a post on here.
    But men continue to ADD to this forum, in a small way; and i think that's the way it should be.
    Now this poor guy, all HE was doing was thanking us!!!!
    I have a feeling that he doesn't have a thin skin though, so we shouldn't be so worried about one

    Interesting that your DH feels slightly uncomfortable or not in his zone. It's not the same with my partner. He views it as all good learning: ie. the more people turn to cycling, the better.

    I should add that my partner belongs in cycling advocacy groups where there are some fairly active, experienced and outspoken female cyclists. These women also have done cross-country touring in CAnada/U.S. and randoneurring. Not just cycling advocacy talk.

    Gosh, I don't drink alcohol either but I do consume a lot of chocolate to make up for my lack of drinking. Can I please stay? Please, please, please let me stay!

    Bruce, enjoy the bike, stay safe and return to those who love you. I too wish to thank you for your service. God Speed, Bruce!

    Bruce, thank you for your service to our country. I hope that you enjoy the bike and please do tell us about your riding! I especially like hearing about how many miles you have ridden. (that's a joke because I like to ride lots of miles and pretend like that's the most important thing in the world)

    silver


    well, yes, this is still a woman's forum. Where else would you hear mention of me getting my hair dyed. I'm very upset about it. the blonde is gone and I've gone back to natural mouse brown. It was required to cover up the lovely sick green that occurred after 3 years of abuse trying to be the blonde that I'm not, whilst triathlon training. she also had t cut about 4 more inches to get to healthy hair. (there that should scare away most men)

    so, it's been very nice having mr. here. you ladies have really helped us through some issues where he didn't see my/the woman's point of view. And we have made some lovely friends.

    Hmmm.....I don't drink. I will eat chocolate. I drool over bicycles. Is that good enough?

    no, but i'd never bleached them in the first place. they weren't too dark to start with.

    I've yet to decypher the next comment, so feel free to translate for me.

    lief - gladly
    pother - commotion

    I'm glad to see that any attempts at comstockery (just got this word!) have been put to rest.

    It's a shame that natation has made you have to go back to fuscous hair Silver. But I bet Mr. still thinks you're fulgurant!

    I kind of wonder about the actual usage of those last two. I bet fulgurant actually only applies to shiny objects, not people.

    Yep, I cover my eyes each time her fulgarantly fuscous locks enter the room

    I guess, she'll have to stop natating!

    But the natation experience has added so much to my quest for fitness.

    But I don't like beer or champagne!!!!

    I liked the fact that 2 TE-ers had been so generous and the fact that Bruce is a guy was kind've incidental! Hope you are following this Bruce and realise that we liked hearing about such a fabulous story


    Well... I'm off to steal everyone else's chocolate while they have their beer and champers...

    That could cause some people to get out their kris or poinard, since stealing chocolate is rather flagitous and would cause a bouleversment.
