16. Officially stated dress codes you can always bend: Black-tie, business casual, casual. Official dress codes you can't: Cocktail formal, white-tie, morning dress.
What is cocktail formal? If you can't bend it, there must be some Rules...

I'd have to take issue with the rule about not wearing a silken square to a funeral. As long as it is in a suitably muted color and not too flamboyantly "puffed," it would seem okay to me.

As to Rosario Dawson being "hot," that almost seems like understatement to me. I have sometimes joked that that dusky beauty (I think she's Afro-Cuban) could convert an Imperial Wizard to the cause of race-mixing!

I will give up sex before having children. You can put money on it.

Luckily we won't have to go to such lengths. No kids.

I felt the same way, at 29.

er, actually not quite. I don't think that the phrase "I will give up sex..." has ever crossed my mind.

Hilarious. I'm not sure it has actually crossed my mind either, but the emphasis is well-placed.

I turn 35 this year so apparently just about to hit my prime time. And we have absolutely no intentions of having kids--I'm set for life apparently.

+100 on that. Children will only cut into our precious clothing-disposable-income. 2 weinerdogs will replace our need for kids.

I'll second the notion of JM Weston (Saphir?) shoe polish smelling absolutely divine. I use a tin of tan quite liberally on all my brown and burgundy colored shoes. I dont get the black polish thing. A dark brown might suffice... but black?

VERY subtle.

Don't know if anyone knows the Canadian fashion entrepreneur Harry Rosen. He always wears mismatched cufflinks. I saw him in a convention last fall and talked to him about it, he said no more than 20 people ever noticed it during his years.

Also, there's a Canadian line of cufflinks, called GreenShag. Pretty interesting.

I'm always curious about others' reasons to not have kids.
Even among my younger friends, they give me strange looks when I express my distaste for children.

Honestly, I'm reluctant to get into a discussion of why I do not want children. I don't dislike children, I should say that upfront. I love my niece and nephews and enjoy spending time with friends' kids. But I have my own reasons beyond that which always draw the same reation: "Oh, you'd feel differently if they were your children." I don't want to feel differently; I like my life how it is.

I hear and understand you. I'm viewed as the alien in my family for holding the same beliefs.

Am I the only one who thinks Rosario Dawson "isn't all that"? I never found her particularly attractive.

If by "isn't all that" you mean that she's slightly less attractive than Eva Longoria, but nonetheless hot enough to seriously consider pulling a Van Gogh, then, yeah, I'm with you...
