OK, I've got to admit it. This is one mystery that I'd like to see solved.

1) Gee, I didn't know I am that itchy.

2) I have learned to cook in recent years, and often have to fight with my wife to cook. She must feel I am an intruder into her realm or something.

3) I don't think I was bad.

4) Not my wife. She uses very little makeup.

I like cooking. It's the clean-up after cooking that I hate.

I don't even mind the cleanup if I have LOTS of room. My ideal kitchen would have 6 sinks!

Well, I guess if your RV is big enough you could install 6 sinks...

I love to cook. The dishwasher process belongs to dh2b.
For the very rare times I don't feel like cooking, I text him a message to let him know he is "cooking" tonight. Translation: pick up some take-out on the way home.

It's not that I love to cook but it is a fact of life so you might as well enjoy it and make it interesting !

Jon Stewart, Colbert, Leno, Letterman, etc., etc., and etc. have writing staffs that are 99 percent male writing their jokes for them. Maybe they just don't think women are funny, rather than funny women intimidating them.

The funniest person to come out of Saturday Night Live recently is Tina Fey, who was the head writer there when she left. The show is dominated by unfunny men right now imho.

Ouch!

Perhaps I should think of setting up these sinks with an outside kitchen. Yeah! With lights strung, and music blaring (it's got to be louder than the generator, right?)... I would drive youbet and DW totally insane.

Kevin Pollack has done very well for himself, because I knew who he was off the top of my head. He always seems like a nice guy in general to me. I gather he was...nice.
He was very professional, funny as hell, had a great stories. But he was nice in the same way that a stand up comedian is nice to the guy talking at on the cell phone during his act.

Does the adjective "real" apply to the subject of the verb "cook", or its object? Or both?




Arghhh... Ladies, please don't tar and feather me...

I've never killed anything other than insects and vegetation in my entire life

I love to cook, and share that pleasure with DW

I think I did a great job raising my kids - learned those life skills from my Dad.

DW never wears make-up except on really special occasions.

I have never considered whether men like women who are funny(or not). I would say most people like others with a sense of humor if they come across in a nice way. Some female comediennes that I like are Tracey Ullmann, Julie Kavner, and Joy Behar. I knew that the latter was on The View(which I have only watched snippets of), but I did not know until recently(when I saw her interviewed) that she started a stand up comedy routine at age 40, after her divorce. Prior to that, she was an English teacher. She grew up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in an Italian family and is very "New York" in her delivery. I saw her evening show "The Joy Behar Show" a few times. She has commentary about various events of the day and also special guests. She is funny and very appealing. I was also shocked to learn she was 67. She looks at least 15 years younger.

Joy Behar looks amazing for 67...maybe with some help but what the heck! She looks fabulous for her age!

I have met Joan Rivers when I was pregnant and huge (they thought I was having twins but just one big 10 lb. whopper). She's pretty over-the-top in person just like she is on tv. I'll bet she's had to take alot of guff from folks not being able to "handle" her over the years...mighty tough babe now I'm sure to survive like she has all these years.
I wouldn't feel threatend by Joan Rivers, but her plastic surgery is really, really, scary..

A hint from me....laughter from a woman afterwards is fine. Laughter from a woman during....not so good.
