I called her at work Monday to tell her HVD and that I left her a message on facebook. She replied "What? that's all I'm getting?" I let her think that, but brought her gifts over later in the day. I told her 4 times "Happy Valentine's Day" and every time I barely got a thank you. I asked what was up with that, she said, "it's not leap year, you don't get to celebrate until then" I was like "WTF?" I'm still pissed about it! Tonight's bullshit dinner at Red Lobster is NOT going to make up for it! That's why she's not coming to my real birthday dinner Saturday night at PF Chang's! Sorry, I had to vent.

    So again, my answer is NO!
    ...Exactly why are you dating her? You always make her sound so unappealing.

    She's hood rich, beautiful, classy and accepted by my family, some of my others weren't. She's ALWAYS there for me whenever I need her and she's intelligent. Arguing with her ass is a lot of fun, our friends call us "the Bickersons".

    What does that say about his tastes?

    No, I like "Revenge of the Sith" get it right, and at least I've had sex this week. All you prolly had was the buffet dinner at Golden Coral.

    This poll confirms what polls of this type usually reveals, that a person who isn't part of the "affected" group, "doesn't see a problem"! What did you hope to achieve by this?

    I don't see that at all, both male options for Yes and No have the same amount of votes so I don't see any confirmation that not being a part of the "affected" group has any impact on whether or not they see sexism as a problem. The results are wholly inconclusive in that regard, and I see no way for it to be interpreted any other way. I'm not going to say gender doesn't influence ones perception of the issue, only that this poll doesn't illustrate that at all.

    I ALSO like the STAR WARS: PREQUEL TRILOGY! The onlyone I had a problem with was The Phantam Menace and that was due to Jar-Jar Binks! But guess, what? When I bought the DVD and activated the close caption function, I found that when I read his dialogue, HE WAS very funny! Lucas scrwewed up by not giving Jar-Jar and the other Gundams sub-titles the way he did with Jabba the Hut!

    What does it say about the contributer's tastes? It shows that he can think for himself and not give a crap about what the rest of "the herd" thinks!
    For years I used to say that "Empire" was the best of the Original Trilogy and would always have to debate somebody--now many people agree with me!


    By the way, REVENGE OF THE SITH is now my favorite of the Six!

    I misread the results. Thanks, good call on that one!

    I have to agree. Anyone who thinks otherwise is either kidding themselves or painfully unaware.
