Always "no." Even a diplomatic "She's okay, I guess" is not good enough in this situation.

Practice this one folks, until it's a Pavlovian response.  It may save your life one day.  The response must be immediate and without a thoughtful pause.  She is not asking "Does she look pretty?"  She is asking you how quickly you can pronounce the word "No."

You probably know this, but what SHE wants to hear is that SHE is pretty.

So, answer the question she is actually asking:

"Honey, you're the woman I want."

That sort of thing.

Anyway....no charge for that.  8)

Tomorrow is July 4th....

Most Americans will, of course, be drunk.  However, most of us also will be at fireworks displays or other patriotic venues.  It looks like I'll be missing my first weekly chat ever as I re-inact something patriotic by eating hotdogs, drinking alcohol, and watching some Chinese fireworks explode.  In deference to that, if anyone wants to start the weekend early, I'll be on the chat tonight (and if I"M not enough of a draw, who is??????) to make up for missing tomorrow night (or perhaps the entire weekend, I may be watching a Team America: World Police 24 hour marathon or something....)

Most Americans....dont lump me in with that crowd.  :wink:   I will be getting drunk tonight....on German beer no less!  And I'll celebrate Independence Day tomorrow by getting up early and having breakfast at a French bistro and drinking coffee from Ethiopia, Columbia, or Guatemala.  And I think Greek food may be on the menu for tomorrow night.

And to think, if Americans colonists had just paid their taxes and acted like good little settlers, I would most likely be drinking tea, eating spotted dick, and biscuits with NO GRAVY!!!  The horror!  8O

:P

I might stop by the chat tonight if I can still feel my fingers.

Hey now! We didn't have a revolution in Canada and we don't eat things like spotted dick.

We do have the abomination in eastern and Atlantic Canada of "Cretons". :P

Not bad, but I would rather have bacon or sausage.

Just joking.  We actually talk about D&D, beer, women, comics, Gen Con, Coug and anybody who doesn't show at the forums :twisted:


"Does this make me look fat?"

It is of course a trick, because there is No good answer to that one.......

I was there for a while alone, then killjoy and I hooked up and began talking about a possible trade.
We got to the point where others joined and could not get much into the conversation.
We were obviously monopolizing the chat room and no one else could get a sentence in edgewise, so Alan called me up and we talked for a long while.

I feel a bit bad though, July 4th is not exactly a holiday in the UK and it was 2 am (his time) before I finally let him go. :oops:

In my defense the last bit of the call was spent with me enjoying the actual DM's account of the "Tail of the Killer Shrew" :lol:
(Pun intended). Tale could also have been used instead......

I almost split a gut laughing.
Just HEARING the lead in and the entire story of that fierce battle over the phone was incredibly hillarious.
I truly wish I had been there to witness that momentous occasion in person.

Sorry for getting all bent out of shape over nothing.

Apparently, I had my melodrama feature turned up to 11 this afternoon.

I'd pay money to see a picture of that.  On second thought, no, I wouldn't.  :)

I always seem to be in chat when no-one else is.

Time to change the deoderant, methinks...
