Jin, I think you might have asked on the OMG thread, but since the hair discussion is here .... I think it is mainly a lighting issue ... it was blonde and dark this time and was last time. I have a little more blonde, but only in places you couldn't see in the previous avatar since it was such a close up. I still have the dark, but it was a much brighter place.

I dated a guy who looked like a cross between John Stamos and Charlie Sheen ... really good looking guy. :)

Tom, do you really want to know if the gentle glide are gentler??? I don't think you do .... I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt.

Now we know why Patti likes Halloween. :)

Okay, okay okay...we do NOT have the Gentle Glider classification here in Canada. I know this, because I have travelled the country and likely shopped for these things in each province. Now why is that? Alex, have you seen these anywhere up here? Canadian women would appreciate gently gliding things as much as in any other country. Nikki, are they available in the UK? When I was over there I did NOT see them, nor in Paris...strictly an American thing? Man, we likely need a gentle glider more than anybody else, as it can be bloody cold through winter...And we could advertise MUCH better up here..."I'm an active woman, and I need the Gentle Glider," says a robust Canadian woman as she glides down a ski hill. :lol:

Carla- I think your hair looks great! Just for the record! :)

Yes- I know what a GENTLE GLIDE TAMPON IS. I'm a GIRL you goof (Tom) what I meant was I didn't know how King Richard knew. But not he has explained himself.

#1 - Married man

#2 - Have been sent to store a time or 2 before with VERY SPECIFIC grocery list

#3 - Prefer the manly blue box

#4 - Can never buy just what's on list...must bury said unmentionables under a stack of innocuous items.

#5 - Refuse to use coupons

#6 - Have been annointed "worlds Greatest Husband" on numerous occaisions rolleyes.gif (even awarded several distinguished service medals for meritorious achievement and going over and above the call of duty)

Hee hee!!!!!!!!!! When I was on my honeymonn in Costa rica I was accompanied by my friend which was NOT due anytime soon (I was told that getting closer to the equator whacks your body out :huh: ). Unfortunately the owner of the inn's wife was preggers at the time so no supplies so they sent Roberto out for "supplies". Try being SPECIFIC in espanol :o

Thanks. :)

I've heard of the gentle glide ones ... they've also changed the regular ones here ... Morgan and I are both upset they took the string out of the paper overwrap ... they're much more difficult to open. :P

No no no!! . . ...the angle I was interested in is whether it's another bloody obvious (to the women) marketing ploy thought up by a man.

(There'd been something similar discussed on OMG quite a while back, in which I was surprised at the unanimity of disgust at some tv comm'l)

At the risk of revealing too much personal information, I can vouch for the fact that the gentle glide are more gentle.

And the cardboard applicators are HEINOUS.

. . . . you goof (Tom)

Whoa! 1st I read it as "goob". :D

Yoohoo! Pseu-zee!! Whatever happened to calling everyone a goob. :blink:

I think it's a fine word & and a nice reminder of Mayberry & Gomer's cousin.

(Ack!! Why the HECK do I remember that Goob was played by George Lindsay? Can trivia be much more trivial than THAT?) :o

<tom now regrets the gentle query into the presumed men's marketing of women's products> <_<

Yup--I agree. Of course, since I've had my hysters removed, I no longer have a need for them. B)

Stupid, pinchy cardboard :angry:

No 'Gentle gliders' here in the UK :(

At the risk of freaking Tom out (Richard can take it - he's married) I am strictly a Tampax brand girl .Do NOT like the plastic applicator types (doesn't flush)

Stupid, pinchy cardboard :angry:

:lol: Ooooer, yes, ...OUCH !!!! :lol:

I'm a cardboard girl myself. You just flush it away...gone forever, and totally biodegradable. Don't find it pinchy. So, are the Gentle Gliders (sounds like a freaking Olympic syncronized swim team) cardboard or plasic? Bev, did Roberto find you gliders in Costa Rica?

Me, too, but I've clogged too many plumbing pipes with the applicators, so stopped trying to flush them about 20 years ago!

That was the one thing my mom harped about the most when we lived at home. My sisters and I all used tampons, religously. My moms biggest thing was they are not flushable even if the box says they are.

Yeah, the most mortifying time was when I was staying at my step-aunt's while my mom and step-father were gone. I flushed ... I even waiting till it discintegrated ... a few minuted later, the ceiling started leaking in the first-floor dining room out of where the light fixture was. I don't know if they ever figured out what caused it, but based on the timing, it was apparent that I had. :ph34r: It was a newly-renovated historic house.

OMG- I take a nap and wake up in Tampon Hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, I have a confession, I hate them all, even the gentle gliders (that synchronized Olympic team). Just don't feel like THOSE belong THERE :ph34r:

You are ALL invited to my party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And while I was sleeping, Uncle ray was at it:

Choosing A Wife

A man wanted to get married. He was having trouble choosing

among three likely candidates. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money.

The first does a total make over. She goes to a fancy beauty salon gets her hair done, new make up and buys several new outfits and dresses up very nicely for the man. She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much.

The man was impressed.

The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts. She gets him a new set of golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on him because she loves him so much.

Again, the man is impressed.

The third invests the money in the stock market. She earns several times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5,000 and reinvests the remainder in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future because she loves him so much.

Obviously, the man was impressed.

The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money he'd given her.

Then, he married the one with the biggest boobs.

Men are like that,

you know.

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them. :D
