One Year later ...... Posted on Sat, May 05, 2007 21:48
Dear friends .... On May 4, 2006 I joined MM Blogland ..... through all this 12 months that has gone by, I have had the opportunity of getting to know fantastic and beautiful persons, which I can refer is one of the best things that has happened to Me. Some are not longer visible, whether because they have quit the Site or because they have taken the decision to stay in the shadow, although they are still here (but silently). I have been contacted or started friendly relations through a "wink" or "mail" from places all around the World. Most of my "MM" friends live in the States and Canada, but England, Holland, Belgium, South Africa, Australia, Argentina, Costa Rica, Korea, Japan, Spain, Chile, Peru, Mexico and Dominican Republic (hope I don't forget some) are also now in my daily agenda of mailing interchange. I will not mention names, because I do not want to leave someone without mention. I would like to express my gratitude for every time you have spent some time on reading my Blogs or some comment I made, also for the times you have add a comment on mine. Still fresh in my mind are some events that we have lived through this months, like when "Bond-007" had play a role on helping identifying "Blogs disappearing" ..., or when we planned the trip to Dominican Republic .... or when I met my ducky friend "Ferrariduck2006", .... or by sharing some interactive interaction through some Blogs ... or just by participating giving some words of support to someone crossing a personal problem. Other times suffering with some trolls .... Do you remember the "Troll Patrol"? Blogland has evolved from a simple dating site tool, to a very special community where good, nice, eloquent, happy, beautiful people interact daily. I will finish this short argument, by expressing my gratitude again to all of YOU, for having had the patience to accept me as a friend. My heart is open to all of You, and I wish the best to all, not only in your love search, but also in your daily life. May only good things happen to all of you in the next and far future!!! Sincerely, Sixtilio

Old Maserati Posted on Fri, May 04, 2007 17:24
A friend of mine was living in the mountains above Denver when his college buddy, Gary, arrived in his ancient Maserati sports car. He had just driven it from Ohio, and as he pulled into his driveway, the car broke down. Calls to auto-supply houses and garages in search of replacement parts proved futile. The 1962 model was simply too rare. Responses ranged from "Mas-a-what?" to "You've got to be kidding." One guy just laughed. My friend was at the end of the listings in the Yellow Pages when he dialed Victor's Garage. "Vic," he said, "you're my last hope. Do you carry any parts for a 1962 Maserati?" There was a long pause. Finally, Victor cleared his throat. "Yes," he replied. "Oil."

Rolls Royce (Humorous) Posted on Wed, Apr 25, 2007 23:08
Moshe was at his golf club and went into the clubhouse to see whether anyone could offer him a lift to Hendon. His own car was off the road being serviced. "Sure," said Morry, "I'll give you a lift. My Rolls Royce is just outside." As they're driving along, Moshe says, "Morry, what's that thing on the dashboard ticking all the time?" "That's my digital clock." A few minutes later, Moshe asks, "And what's that thing on the dashboard moving up and down?" "That's my tachometer," says Morry. Then a few minutes after that, Moshe starts to ask, "But what's that...." "Hold on a minute, Moshe," says Morry, "I can see you've never been in a Rolls Royce before." "Never in the front seat." says Moshe.

Blessings !!! Posted on Sun, Nov 19, 2006 13:40
For those "We" have already reached .... They will know !!! I hope this goes through, Millionaires in search of Million Blessings ... Just imagine what would happen if everyone involved in this experiment -- all the million plus people who have viewed the movie thus far, and all those who will view in the future -- if all of us spent just 24 hours letting our lives be a blessing to others. Just imagine the changes that would occur if in each and every encounter, we offered a blessing of hope and joy and love. Imagine what would happen if in every situation, even those perceived as difficult or bad, we insisted on recognizing the good within and began to bless that good into being. Just imagine what a powerful difference that would make. In 24 hours, we could make an impact that would shake the world. One million plus blessings going out moment by moment, over and over again, hour after hour after hour. Just imagine the impact such a crescendo of blessings would have. Blessing another person or a situation is not difficult, in fact, it is the easiest thing to do. It takes only the time necessary to think a good thought, which is little time indeed. Despite its simplicity, however, it has a ripple effect that will continue long after the initial blessing has been forgotten. With enough of us actively blessing others, the ripple could be immensely strengthened, building with each blessing until it becomes a quake of goodness strong enough to be felt across the universe. We have the ability to cause a true tsunami of blessings. Right now at this very moment, with nothing more than our silent agreement to band together, we can begin to radically and forever change the world. Sixtilio & Ferrariduck

What It Means ... Posted on Thu, Mar 01, 2007 12:04
WHAT IT MEANS Five year old Becky answered the door when the Census taker came by. She told the Census taker that her daddy was a doctor and wasn't home, because he was performing an appendectomy. "My," said the census taker, "that sure is a big word for such a little girl. Do you know what it means?" "Sure! Fifteen hundred bucks, and that doesn't even include the anaesthesiologist!"

Elderly ..... Posted on Fri, Feb 09, 2007 15:25
EXCITED ABOUT MARRIAGE Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding and on the way they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they go in. Jacob addresses the man behind the counter: 'Are you the owner?' The pharmacist answers yes. Says Jacob: 'We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?' Pharmacist: 'Of course we do.' Jacob: 'How about medicine for circulation?' Pharmacist: 'All kinds.' Jacob: 'Medicine for rheumatism, scoliosis? ' Pharmacist: 'Definitely.' Jacob: 'How about Viagra?' Pharmacist: 'Of course.' Jacob: 'Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, jaundice?' Pharmacist: 'Yes, a large variety. The works.' Jacob: 'What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?' Pharmacist: 'Absolutely.' Jacob: 'You sell wheelchairs and walkers?' Pharmacist: 'All speeds and sizes.' Jacob says to the pharmacist: 'We'd like to register here for our wedding gifts, please.' ____________________ AN ELDERLY WOMAN'S PORTRAIT An elderly woman decided to have her portrait painted. She instructed the artist, "Paint me with diamond earrings, an emerald necklace, a ruby bracelet, and a Rolex watch." "But you're not wearing any of those things!" the artist said. "I know," she replied. "But if I should die before my husband, I'm sure he'll remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewelry!"
A Billion Dollar Site Posted on Mon, Aug 07, 2006 13:54
This is a Billion Dollar Site !!! Yes, ... If we consider the NET GROWTH of the 6,500 Members, this Site reaches the US$ 975 Millions, considering just everybody with an income of US$ 150,000. OK, having said the above (sorry if my English is not the best), I will come up with the following idea: I joined this Site in the beginning of May. I became a "Blog Reader Addict", have learned more and understand better some concepts related to dating experiences. I have tried in my comments and Blogs to share ideas and most of the times post funny things, just to participate in a good way and also by trying to understand the rules under how this Site was working. Concepts like "Wanna be's", "Rich","Wealthy" and "Millionaire" are all related to this Site, based on the name of the Site. I will not talk about the "Wanna be's" because I will not put or consider anyone of the members that participate here under this concept or category. Being "Rich" is a concept that could be defined for a person that has win the Lottery. It does not require intelligence, good character, good feelings or other good concepts you can be willing to find in a match. Being "Rich" is just an opportunity of getting Money just by Luck. Being "Wealthy", here the concept became richer. I define a "wealthy" person as a consequence of not only having money, but also other qualities that surround the person with good health, good life style and good friends and family. Now, the word "Millionaire", the principal concept because we all have joined this Site, goes farther than just simple having Money or being Wealthy. It is a mental attitude. If you think Big, walk and behave with strong personality, like being a Giver, ... what do you are? ... You are a !!! Millionaire !!! The Concept of living and thinking under the definition of "Millionaire", opens our "Soul" to identify a different way of behavior in comparison of people that do not think these way. I per example was born in a "wealthy" family structure, became "rich" by my own effort, but being "millionaire" this is a "genetic plus" that is inside of every cell I have in my body. I can be one day without Money or Wealth, but I will remain always Millionaire, because this is an "ATTITUDE". So, I think that we all are here, not only searching for a match or fulfilling a stage of loneliness; we really are here because we identify that we have a way of thinking that differs from regular persons and we can express that feeling without being considered "weird persons". Here we can talk to each other without limits on how our imagination wants to travel. We just do it. This "ATTITUDE" of defining ourselves as "Millionaires" is a special characteristic of our very special way of behavior. So I propose to all of you to open this Concept and lets identify ourselves as the owners of this special kind of feelings, which is by no comparison an ideal way of living. SO I defined a "Millionaire" because of their "ATTITUDE". YES THIS IS ALL ABOUT "ATTITUDE" Thanks ...

On Love and Marriage Posted on Sat, Dec 09, 2006 18:17
HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? "You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming." Alan, age 10 "No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with." Kirsten, age 10 WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? "Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then." Camille, age 10 "No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married." Freddie, age 6 HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED? "Married people usually look happy to talk to other people." Eddie, age 6 "You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids." Derrick, age 8 WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON? "Both don't want no more kids." Lori, age 8 WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE? "Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough." Lynnette, age 8 "On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." Martin, age 10 WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR? "I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns." Craig, age 9 WHEN IS IT OK TO KISS SOMEONE? "When they're rich." Pam, age 7 "The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that." Curt, age 7 "The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do." Howard, age 8 IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? "I don't know which is better, but I'll tell you one thing. I'm never going to have sex with my wife. I don't want to be all grossed out." Theodore, age 8 "It's better for girls to be single, but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them." Anita, age 9 "Single is better, for the simple reason that I wouldn't want to change no diapers. Of course, if I did get married, I'd just phone my mother and have her come over for some coffee and diaper-changing." Kirsten, age 10 HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED? "There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?" Kelvin, age 8 "You can be sure of one thing - the boys would come chasing after us just the same as they do now." Roberta, age 7 HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? "If you want to last with your man, you should wear a lot of sexy clothes, especially underwear that is red and maybe has a few diamonds on it." Lori, age 8 "Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck." Ricky, age 10
Perspective Posted on Sat, Nov 25, 2006 18:08
An English professor wrote the words, "A woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and directed the students to punctuate it correctly. The men wrote: "A woman, without her man, is nothing." The women wrote: "A woman: without her, man is nothing." _______________ NEWSPAPER BLOOPERS Here are a few genuine news bloopers gleaned from American newspapers. These were taken from an article by Richard Lederer, author of "Anguished English." - On behalf of Barbara Rutledge and her family, our sincere thanks go out to those sending flowers, cards and contributing to the death of her husband. - The airplane was only a few feet from the ground when it crashed, witnesses said. - With the exception of victimless crimes (which need not concern us here), every single crime committed in this nation of ours involves a victim. - A purple lady's bicycle was missing from Serendipity Lane recently. - Chairman Billings asked Board members to muster support from parent-teacher groups to support the governor's task force on driving while intoxicated. - He hasn't even had his day in court yet, but Simon Wynne has been kicked off the ESU basketball team after being arrested and accused of driving a parked car while intoxicated. - Montreal police don't hesitate to use whatever laws, regulations or persuasion they feel they need to control morality in the city and prevent it from getting a foothold. - A college friendship that began a year ago ended in matrimony yesterday. ______________ HUNTING FLIES A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter. "What are you doing?" she asked. "Hunting Flies," he responded. "Oh!, Killed any?" she asked. "Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied. Intrigued, she asked. "How can you tell?" He responded, "3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone."

Life in the 1500s Posted on Sat, Nov 25, 2006 17:56
The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s: Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May and still smelled pretty good by the next month. Even so, they were starting to stink, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children - last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty someone could actually get lost in it! Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater." Houses had thatched roofs - thick straw piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the dogs, cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs." There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house in those days. This posed a real problem in the bedroom, where bugs and other droppings could really mess up a nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence. The floors were dirt, and only the wealthy had something other than dirt, from which came the saying "dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on the floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they kept adding more thresh until when the door was opened it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway to prevent this, hence the saying a "thresh hold."

OK, .... this is a proof that most of us do not follow instructions. And ... I guess that you are not going to read the next lines either or am I wrong? Some JOKES to refresh: The patient awakened after the operation to find herself in a room with all the blinds drawn. "Why are all the blinds closed?" she asked her doctor. "Well," the surgeon responded, "They're fighting a huge fire across the street, and we didn't want you to wake up and think the operation had failed." __________________________ Ponder This: The difference between a neurotic and a psychotic is that, while a psychotic thinks that 2 + 2 = 5, a neurotic knows the answer is 4, but it worries him. ____________________________ A mother and her daughter were at the gynecologist's office. The mother asked the doctor to examine her daughter. "She has been having some strange symptoms and I'm worried about her," the mother said. The doctor examined the daughter carefully and then announced, "Madam, I believe your daughter is pregnant." The mother gasped, "That's nonsense! Why, my little girl has nothing whatsoever to do with men." She turned to the girl. "You don't, do you, dear?" "No, mummy," said the girl. "Why, you know that I have never so much as kissed a man!" The doctor looked from mother to daughter, and back again. Then, silently he stood up and walked to the window, staring out. He continued staring until the mother felt compelled to ask, "Doctor, is there something wrong out there?" "No, Madam," said the doctor, and continued rather wryly, "It's just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the East... I was just looking to see if another one was going to show up." _______________________________ New addition to the periodic table of elements: Element Name: WOMANIUM Symbol: WO Atomic Weight: (don't even go there) Physical properties: Generally soft and round in form. Boils at nothing and may freeze any time. Melts when treated properly. Very bitter if not used well. Chemical properties: Very active. Highly unstable. Possesses strong affinity with gold, silver, platinum, and precious stones. Violent when left alone. Able to absorb great amounts of exotic food. Turns slightly green when placed next to a better specimen. Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for dispersion of wealth. Probably the most powerful income reducing agent known. Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands!
Please MM Producers: Reconsider !!! Posted on Wed, Sep 27, 2006 17:08
Today the order of comments have change positions. Now we can start reading from the older to the newer. In some way this is better, but there is a problem. Good Blogs have comments that goes through several pages, which means that to read the last comment, you have to go through several pages of search. Other solution could be that all comments appear in one page (no matter how long it goes down). These could also work. I think this will not work. I think that "MM Producers" should reconsider and get back to the opposite concept, as it has been apearing for months. Could they also add a second column where amount of comments is also rated???
Ode to Willprt Posted on Mon, Sep 18, 2006 07:00
Ok Will ... I am coming back with an answer to yours. I have to call to all of you for your attention!!! Blogland is funny !!!! sometimes not so much, ... but we have become in some way ... a virtual family. During this months there have been some fights, because of different personalities coming together ... too fast. But after some apologies or aclarations ... the interaction has become better. Yes, there are some "trolls" around, but do they do any harm? Everybody need some time to put their feet on ground, some need more time, but sooner or later, they will do. So I am writing this Blog because I have a question to "MM Producers": Where is the Blog " ALL MM VOTE!! WHO IS THE CLASSIEST BACHELORETTE? " gone ??? In less than 10 days Will's Blog runned up to 4000 views (all a record). There are only 10 pages at the Blogs and it doesn't appear anymore !!! .... but ... If I search by his name, it appear under the 17 of september. Good subjects are going out !!! So here am I "Willprt", giving a tribute to the best Blog written ever. More than 4000 hits. And I also guess is the one with the more amount of comments. So now that "MM Producers" have decided to "colapse" the good mood of Blogland, I have to stand up and publicly make a tribute to the best Blog written ever!!!
De Ninia a Mujer Posted on Fri, Aug 11, 2006 20:49
Que bella la epoca de la pureza e inocencia ! Eras ninia de largos silencios y ya me querias bien tu mirada buscaba la mia jugabas a ser mujer. Pocos anios ganados al tiempo, vestidos con otra piel, y mi vida que nada esperaba tambien te queria bien. Te extraniaba ya tanto que al no verte a mi lado ya soniaba con volverte a ver y entretanto te estaba inventando de ninia a mujer. Y esa ninia de largos silencios volaba tan alto que mi mirada queria alcanzarla y no la podia ver. La paraba en el tiempo pensando que no deberia crecer, pero el tiempo me estaba enganiando mi ninia se hacia mujer. La queria ya tanto que al partir de mi lado ya sabia que la iba a perder y es que el alma le estaba cambiando de ninia a mujer. PS. Hay veces que es mejor no recordar un hecho o una fecha!

SAMPLE OF A MODERN LOVE LETTER Dearest Samantha, I am very happy to inform you that I have fallen in love with you since Tuesday, the 17th of August 2005. With reference to the meeting held between us on the 17th of August 2005 at 1500 hours, I would like to present myself as a prospective lover. Our love affair would be on probation for a period of no less than three months and depending on compatibility, would be made permanent. Of course, upon completion of probation, there will be continuous relationship training and relationship appraisal schemes leading up to promotion from lover to spouse. The expenses incurred for coffee and entertainment would initially be shared equally between us. Later, based on your performance, I might take up a larger share of the expenses. However I am broad-minded enough, to be taken care of, on your expense account. I request you to kindly respond within 30 days of receiving this letter, failing which, this offer would be canceled without further notice and I shall be considering someone else. I would be happy, if you could forward this letter to your sister, if you do not wish to take up this offer. Thanking you in anticipation. Yours sincerely, Max MODERN REPLY TO MODERN LOVE LETTER Dear Max, Please refer to your letter dated today. I am pleased to inform you that I hope to accept your proposal for romance. However, you should be informed that there are certain conditions of acceptance. Promotional prospects are to my satisfaction. However, please enlighten me as to your retirement benefits. Gratuity should be generous. I also need to be assured that there is sufficient security with regards to this commitment. If there is any chance at all of retrenchment or consequent disinterest on your part, then I should receive monetary compensation according to union standards. Due to the nature of my position, I am sure you will agree that an expense account should be arranged for my access in light of the 'VIP'. I shall be entertaining. In addition, housing and transport allowances should be in order and nothing less than a Jaguar is in order. Please also note that there should be no moonlighting restrictions placed on myself. If you are still interested in the relationship, please reply on an urgent basis as other prospective lovers have sent indications of interest. Please also note that my sister is happily employed. Yours perhaps, Samantha!
"Dating Sites Never Die" (final comments) Posted on Tue, May 23, 2006 20:39
(New Member on MM) James Bond Wanna-Be Fingered to Be the Next 007 Sixtilio - Shaken, Not Stirred After Blowing out a knee and cracking a rib in 'To Die Another Day', Pierce Brosnan had seconds thoughts about continuing his role as Secret Agent 007. This week, it was confirmed that the next James Bond film will feature a new lead. Sources suggest that the new Bond may be the little-known Sixtilio. Sixtilio, whose film credits are presently unknown, may seem an unlikely choice for a high-profile film star. But sources closely involved in the next Bond film production seem keen on having Sixtilio. Given the role, Sixtilio will be the sixth actor in over thirty years to portray the fictional Secret Agent 007. He will follow in the prodigious footsteps of past Bonds Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan. "It seems to work to his [Sixtilio's] advantage that he's not quite a professional actor," said Lee Tamahori, director of To 'Die Another Day' and the forthcoming 'Doctor Death Kitten'. "On camera, Sixtilio comes across raw and direct. Not slick and artificial" Those who have seen Sixtilio's screen tests agree. "Also in his favor," added Tamahori, "Sixtilio works a lot cheaper than Brosnan and Daltry." Actors Ewan McGregor and Alan Cumming are also being considered for the next Bond role. E-Celebrity columnist Lori Russell, points to Sixtilio as the odds-on favorite. "He's new. He's fresh. He's the one everyone is whispering about," said Russell. "He's likely to be the first Bond since Sean Connery that audience can truly relate to." Others are more cynical about the role changes. Entertainment Weekly critic Andrew Sherman wrote, "I think the special effects are now the real stars of the Bond movies. It hardly matters who plays 007. They might as well give the role to an American for all anyone cares." According to Tamahori, though, this is all the more reason to cast Sixtilio. "Special effects can only move the film along so far. At some point you need someone who knows how to kiss. And, believe me, Sixtilio knows how to kiss." Have a nice Day. (SMILE and BE HAPPY)

Stuck On The Island Posted on Tue, Jun 20, 2006 14:43
An ambitious yuppie finally decided to take a vacation. He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life... until the boat sank! The man found himself swept up on the shore of an island with no other people, no supplies... Nothing. Only bananas and coconuts. After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to him. In disbelief he asks her: "Where did you come from? How did you get here?" "I rowed from the other side of the island," she says. "I landed here when my cruise ship sank." "Amazing," he says. "You were really lucky to have a rowboat wash up with you." "Oh, this?" replies the woman. "I made the rowboat out of raw material that I found on the island; the oars were whittled from gum tree branches; I wove the bottom from palm branches; and the sides and stern came from a Eucalyptus tree." "But-but, that's impossible," stutters the man. "You had no tools or hardware. How did you manage?" "Oh, that was no problem," replies the woman. "On the south side of the island, there is a very unusual strata of alluvial rock exposed. I found that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into forgeable ductile iron. I used that for tools and used the tools to make the hardware. The guy is stunned. "Let's row over to my place, " she says. After a few minutes of rowing, she docks the boat at a small wharf. As the man looks onto shore, he nearly falls out of the boat. Before him is a stone walk leading to an exquisite bungalow painted in blue and white. While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope, the man can only stare ahead, dumb-struck. As they walk into the house, her beautiful breasts bouncing with each step, she says casually, "It's not much, but I call it home. Sit down please; would you like to have a drink?" "No thank you," he says, still dazed. "Can't take any more coconut juice." "It's not coconut juice," the woman replies. "I have a still. How about a Pina Colada?" Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they sit down on her couch to talk. After they have exchanged their stories, the woman announces, "I'm going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There is a razor upstairs in the cabinet in the bathroom." No longer questioning anything, the man goes into the bathroom. There, in the cabinet, is a razor made from a bone handle. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are fastened onto its end, inside of a swivel mechanism. "This woman is amazing," he muses. "What next?" When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing but vines and a shell necklace-strategically positioned-and smelling faintly of gardenias. She beckons for him to sit down next to her. "Tell me," she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him, "we've been out here for a very long time. You've been lonely. I've been lonely. There's something I'm sure you really feel like doing right about now, something you've been longing for all these months? You know... " She stares into his eyes. He can't believe what he's hearing. His heart begins to pound. He's truly in luck: "You mean...", he gasps, "...I can actually check my e-mail from here?"
