No, I don't think there's any ambiguity. In one set of circumstances, I'd unambiguously choose one thing, and in a different set of circumstances I'd unambiguously choose a different thing. (If the guy had called me honey, I would have purchased from him. But he didn't. Maybe he will learn a lesson from that, but probably not. Unless he reads SF.)

Damn but our little "Blue Guy" is cute. He's about 15 months now, a "blue" (really greyish) Siberian and he's got the sunniest, happiest personality I've ever seen in a cat.

Would he have needed to use a Chinese accent?

Maybe I would have required a Chinese accent from other guys, but not from this one. Even if he had a Dutch accent, that would have been fine.

Not a dealbreaker for this guy!

If he said it in a creepy Vincent Price kind of way, that might ruin it for me though.

How about a constant stream of self deprecating remarks to the point you begin to entertain the notion he may have psychological issues?*

The trees look so pretty with their leaves changing colors; this makes my 100 mile commute a little less boring.

The part about self deprecation just reminded me of something, which probably shouldn't go in the happy thread, except that it is a little bit funny. Sometimes I feel I am committing a moral wrong when I give compliments to my romantic partners. Why is that? Well, because the norm of reciprocity suggests that they should return some kind of compliment. Therefore, by complimenting them I am putting them in a position where they have to invent a lie, since I don't have any qualities that merit compliments. shog[1].gif

(I should add that I don't think that all the time. But it has occurred to me more than once.)

And yes, I am aware I'm gay.

crochet knitting or single point?

not gay but attempted to learn crochet knitting. My eyes were telling me that surfing the net wasn't a hobby.

you did good, z.

Her cousins are the Streisands, as in Barbara. Babs was invited but didn't attend, and I am disappointed.
Me and the bride. BB Golden Fleece suit, BB pink shirt, Panta tie, Allen Edmonds captoes.

She asked if there was anything she could help me with, and when I told her she said (yelled) "OH YOU LIKE TOM FORD THAT'S VERY GOOD ONE!" But that's not the odd part yet; the odd part was at the end of every sentence she called me honey, but in that same aggressive voice: "SMELLS GOOD, DON'T YOU THINK, HONEY?" Since she was also very beautiful, and had called me honey probably six or seven times, I decided to purchase my fragrances there rather than at Neimans, where I had planned to buy them. (I should add that there is an outrageously good looking guy who works at the fragrance counter at Neimans, but he was at the wrong counter and (unfortunately) has never called me honey.)

steleotype chinese woman? that is lacist! angry.gif
