Hi- fit attractive successful businessman ,single dad with kids in college ,I am fun,witty,smary,and playful -lets meet for lynch and see
what happens ,must be a non smoker and have a healthy libido-your pic and contact info gets mine -thanks

Oh, hello there, god guy. Why, yes … you do appear to be smary. And I suppose you look fit as well, although I can’t quite tell with that large white sheet covering up your entire body and head. No, thanks, I’m not in the mood for a lynch; I just had a stoning earlier today, and you know how that fills a person up. What I’d really like to talk to you about is a letter of reference …

Thanks, Lindy and Sara!

    First to Snark!
    Sparky #1 Well I’m not sure I can be seriou is it like playfou and talentiou? I can do pleasee but not on Wednesdays (don’t ask).

    I’m just the ladyeee for Sparky #2 since I adore Hi-fit and smary men and love a good lynching (or guillotining) since I’m very good at knitting healthy libidos from the hair and fur of murd / kille / dead / ex-living things.

    I do love me some good lynching. Although I prefer the more traditional ‘burning torches and pitchforks’ with villageware over the stuffy formal sheet wearing crowd.

    Also do you think it matters which God I get to write my recommendation letter? Like could I just call up ol’ Thor and ask him to fax one over or what?

        Although I guess being a blanket wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing. (Unless it(I?) was a wet blanket square.)

          Kara, I now judge potential employers by whether they can open a pdf sent by email. Which is why, sadly, so many now insist upon Word documents.

          Which typically means they are using the link from Outlook (or worse yet, Outlook Express), which means any formatting or page information and, heaven help you, links or emails, will be lost.

          I did a consulting job as a place where the HR department was convinced no online applicant was worth considering. After all, they all had no typing skills and all used Courier monospaced 18pt.

      I would say if it lives behind the fridge, is fuzzy, sings show tunes, with the moon full, and the wind blowing to the west, the tide ebbing, and a hula girl dancing-it’s probably a small resentful dust bunny that hates it’s life and aspires to be on Broadway.

          [corey]The real sad thing is that “Immaculate Conception” is really what I would term a “colloquialy accepted fuzzy definition.” It has two meanings that depend on how you use it AND by which interpretation of the Bible your faith accepts.

          Basically, both sides of that argument are correct because originally, yes Immaculate Conception was Mary; however, by common colloquial use and more modern interpretations of the Bible, it’s acceptable to use it to refer to Jesus.[/corey]

          I think it’s the existance of the corey tag that allows us to plop in similar discourse without seeming self righteous. And when we really want to go to town we have the matt/matte tags.

          The best thing about that freshener was not the terrible, kitch art or the fact that it was also artificially scented, but that there was a warning on the packaging against hanging it too close to paint or varnish, lest the chemicals it exuded mar the surface.
