Well, this has certainly been quite the busy week; with all the stress and awkward social interactions, we've barely had time for saucy commentary, wry facial expressions or scandalous anecdotes.

In other news, which isn't really new- or news for that matter- We Have Given Up Men for Lent, which has now been extended to a fresh and exciting 365 day *holiday of inconvenience and woe.

We have not given up on trickling out of the house for various events of sorts, and in fact are going out this evening for drinks, which may or may not have tiny umbrellas. However, we shall speak exclusively with the potted palm in the corner, in order to avoid any perilous conversations.

Pros of the "We Have Given Up Men for Lent"en Holiday:
1. ice cream for breakfast!
2. the ability to cut your hair however you want without someone throwing a fit
3. kung fu movie marathons!
4. no compromise on radio stations while driving
5. vacation wherever you want

Cons of the "We Have Given Up Men for Lent"en Holdiay:
1. no nookie
2. an alarming tendency to roam around in nothing but unfashionable socks while eating ice cream for breakfast
3. still no nookie
4. only one jar of mayonnaise, a bottle of wine, and a bag of shriveled grapes in the refrigerator
5. um, no nookie at all

*We hope to have a line of greeting cards soon.

no nookie vs. cutting your hair however you like. It's really a toss-up.

Don't sound like good gallavanting to me. For a whole year? Kung Foo reruns?
Poor baby.

As Queen Elizabeth always said "If we are supposed to be in relationships how come our hands are attached to arms that reach all the way to our crotch".
Of course she also always said " If this stables a rockin, don't come a knockin". And she also had an unhealthy fascination with zucchini. So what did she know.
Anyways, good luck with no men lent. If it's good enough for a queen it's good enough for anyone, I guess..

1) Religion

2) Lint

3) Forks, sporks, and things made of vulcanized rubber

4) Football

rhodent: who knows? perhaps not very long...

Cap'n Rich: I may be changing my mind this week perhaps

Happy and Blue: I always learn such interesting history from you!

Tickgirl: don't worry-- your friend Adam gave me a call and dragged me out to a really fun party where I met some other blues/books/anime/sci fi fans and ran into another local artist I know -- you missed a good time

negative guy: I always give up football and lint year round.... I may swith "men" with "lima beans" instead
