Black ice is fun if you're going slow enough around the corner that you just kinda slip a bit.

When the lady reached for my clipboard of information I thought she was putting out a hand to shake so I shook hers.

Do automatic door openers mean guys think they don't need to unlock/open the car door for their lady?

I'm not sure why, but I don't seem to have the patience for Bit Torrent...ing.

Four year olds can scream loud. ly.

I don't remember the last movie I saw in the theatres. Stardust maybe?

I like chocolate. 

It made me sad when the ferry breakfast buffet didn't have bacon.

I always hold open doors for women, but come on - it's redundant to open a car door when there are automatic car locks. My Girl is secure enough to not take it personal.

I think.

Great... I'll have to check now. Thanks for the paranoia.

OMG yes - I had my first "woah boy" slip in the car last night. After riding motorcycles and some dirt, sliding in a car is semi-second-nature and semi-new.... but at that speed definitely not a panic.

No, guys who don't want to open the door for a lady make them think they don't need to open a door for a lady. I do it anyway. The real question is: Do automatic locks make a girl think she doesn't need to reach over and unlock his door after he opens hers first for her. One of my roommates called this "The door unlock test." Escort a girl to the car to take her home. Unlock her door with the key. Open it. Assist her in entering the vehicle. Walk around the car to your door. If she doesn't reach over to unlock your door by the time you get around the car, dump her. (At least according to his standards.) My ex didn't unlock. I should have listened to him.

Car door opening for the lady is nice in random fashion, but not every single time she gets in.

Yes, Four year olds are VERY loud, especially when coupled with a 2 yr old.

Chocolate tastes good. Bacon tastes good.

Hey, thanks Julie! : )

And McGone? I'm always happy to pass on the paranoia! You're welcome my man ; )

Cap, I totally know about the door unlock test. I like it. Shows reciprocal respect or chivalry or thoughtfulness or something. Automatic door locks kinda do mess stuff up. Maybe when we're in a new relationship or on a special date they automatic door locks shouldn't be used, therefore allowing both parties to do nice door opening duties? *nods wisely to self*

I agree.
Oh, and yes. I see your four year old and two year old and raise you three more four year olds and a three year old and I'll even throw in some birthday cake to the mix. I have no hearing left. You?
I think chocolate wrapped bacon wouldn't taste good, however. :(

"I believe that two year olds are louder...but maybe it's just the pitch..."I think to myself as I finish off the last of the chocolate covered almonds...

Fair point Dilling, but this was 5 at once. In a small room. And a certain spy made the mistake of opening the door.

At which point they all screamed.


Real loud.


mmmmm ch. cov. almonds........

Just to give you a glimpse into our life...we have a lot of kids in the neighborhood, and they always play together. Out of 6 families, there are 15 [FIFTEEN!!] kids, all under 6 years old.

You can imagine how the birthday parties are.

Tod, we really are. We really really are! Heh.

Slinger, I'm not sure you could pay me to be at those parties. Maybe with earplugs. And earmuffs? ; )

I have a woman friend who is so polite that when she drives, she always unlocks and opens the car door for any/all passengers.
I can think of only one guy who has ever done this for me!

Awww, I think that's sweet about your friend!

I'd like it if more guys did it, but I think many of them are unsure how "manly" we women want them to be, they've heard a lot of different things!

Ooooh, the ferry breakfast buffet! I am now officially a bit homesick... although the lack of bacon is mitigating it a bit :) How can they even call it a breakfast buffet knowing there would be no bacon??? Thats just wrong in so, so many ways.
Happy Friday from a transplanted West Coaster in seriously-snowy Halifax.

CB, I asked myself the same question "How can these people call this a buffet with no bacon!" So wrong! ; )
Sorry to have made you homesick, but you're making me jealous with the snow so we'll call it even? : )
