Interesting that some of you suffer from penis fixation...

That image used to describe the arm scye problem was the slouchy figure version. The slouchy posture includes slightly forward loins, a limb butt and a shrunk penis.

The erect figure (like myself) is the total opposite.

Some of us use our penis every day, so there's that to consider.

Eat the steak ... and play-up your enjoyment ... even if it is tough and tasteless. This is what I imagine that Vox would do.

I brought my own to college ... my own chef that is.

During RSS's first marriage women were not allowed to be chefs.

And ... I insisted on doing the grilling myself. Nothing beats a well-grilled piece of pterodactyl.

Now you young folks will not remember this.

Seriously ... I did not bring my own chef ... neither did I bring Number One. I'm at year 27 with No. 1 ... so if you do the numbers you'll see that I was single. But I will admit that I was helpless when it came to "keeping" house.

My school had recently stopped taking care of the students' laundry ... and I remember calling home to ask the housekeeper how I was to accomplish the goal of keeping my clothing clean. She was certain that there must be a self-service laundry in my dorm ... but knowing that I was one to tackle most things without reading the directions/instructions ... suggested a commercial laundry.

I did my own laundry at school, but Brown had a laundry service with pick-up and delivery. Never made much sense to me, since it was far more convenient and far cheaper to do it yourself; every dorm had its own laundry facilities. I was surprised by the number of boarding school kids who didn't know how to operate a washing machine. A real eye-opener to a different world for me.

The two of you should jointly start a collegiate laundry thread.

Pterodactyl steak is delicious.

A Yale grad I worked with recently, probably in her early 40's, did not know where to put the soap in her new washing machine.

Wow. I just thought it was funny how befuddled and scared some of my friends were of washing their own clothes--as if everything would come out in rags.

Hey ... I once washed my favorite cashmere scarf. I forgot all about it being a part of the load ... so when it came out of the dryer I had no recollection of having washed a tiny white rag made of some absurdly dense fiber. I was thinking it looked like a little piece of vacuum packed Angora. Three days later it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Why am I not surprised?
