Would Frangry eat a chocolate mouse?

I hate shaving...us women feel it's necessary because of an ideal society imposed on us. Like we all need to look like little girls. I say rebel!!!

I hate going through emails.

Speaking of tangled things: when you dig out the Xmas lights, and they're always a tangled mess (no matter how carefully you stored them a year ago). Then you spend ages untangling the lights, and then checking all the bulbs to find loose or broken ones. Ugh.
  Fri. 11/1/13 6:11pm MISTER JOHNNY:

Listening to Shut Up, Weirdo is my favorite brainless activity.

...everyone says chocolate is deadly for dogs - but does anyone know of a >specific< dog eating chocolate catastrophe ??...
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:12pm Caryn:

@RRN63: well, technically, chocolate is poisonous to humans too. But with us, the quantities you would have to eat to get poisoned are so big that it's not really an issue.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:13pm Eyepatch Fox:

To catch mice: get an empty paper towel tube, put some peanut butter on one end, balance it on a counter, and place a tall garbage can under it. The mouse crawls up on the counter, goes in the tube to get the food, tumbles into the bin. Live mouse caught! I just open the window and pitch the mouse out from the third floor into the yard below. Wheeee!!!
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:13pm cosmickitty:

Michelle ages like a fine wine...I would rather see her as she is, even if it's slightly hairy, rather then all bare like some girl.

Just put that hair in a sideways ponytail, and you're good to go!

I like raking leaves in the fall. The smell is wonderful.

I used to enter inventory information at the bookstore where I work, which could take hours and involved hardly any movement or thought. Most of what I do now is just packing or unpacking boxes full of books and merchandise. I miss entering the inventory.
  Fri. 11/1/13 6:15pm Latino Diablo:

I hate pooping. It takes forever n sometimes its soooo messy, I need to wipe at least 10X b4 it gets kinda clean. You hav been dia-bo-led
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:16pm Caryn:

We're talking about it because it's a menial task plenty of women dislike doing, Frangry!
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:16pm cosmickitty:

You were talking about shaving being a menial task.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...time for LED Xmas lights...
...more like - what jobs *aren't* menial brain-numbing deflating demeaning B.S. ...
...hate shaving before I start - start liking more as go on - love being shaved - that's life...
...pooping, eating, breathing - all bloody life-sentences...
  Fri. 11/1/13 6:16pm MISTER JOHNNY:

Tell us about your Halloween, Frangry and Michele...

Did you sing scary spooky karoke songs???
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...women not shaving is fine - if you've *never* shaved, it's fine hair - if you start & stop - you're LonChaney...wait - I can't prove that...

Wait, you didn't go to the Village Parade???

What would your superhero name be. You guys liked that one before.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:21pm Caryn:

I used to be in charge of the greeting card department in a store. Sorting and restocking the cards was an annoying menial task. Well, my pedantic nature enjoyed getting the messy displays sorted out, and it was nice being in charge of something, but otherwise it was a nightmare, because shoppers never put the damn cards back where they got them, so I sometimes ended up sorting cards for 9 hours straight. Sigh...

I think two chicks shaving each other is hot.

...lived next to a place someone stored masses of horse's hay, had mice - got an electric mousetrap @ K-Mart - little rectangular blackbox - has a valve so they go in but not out (peanut butter on end) - has AA batteries, they get electrocuted - little red light goes red - empty out - worked great...not a live trap though...also, you have one, you have three, is the expression, so go until you catch no more...glue trap was horrific w/ little mousy there struggling in terror w/ little feets stuck in glue - WTF - ?!?!...
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:22pm cosmickitty:

Then shaving wouldn't be a menial task.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:23pm Eyepatch Fox:

"if you start & stop - you're LonChaney...wait - I can't prove that..." Nope, it's not true. It only FEELS like thicker hair because the end of the hair is bluntly cut instead of finely pointed like a virgin hair. Shaving has no effect on the hair growth.

...so - we shaved the mouse...

Going grocery shopping is the worst. Too many people and noise and ladies that can't operate carts. And then you have to wait an hour to get cold cuts. AWFUL

I love polishing my boots
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:26pm Caryn:

@Eyepatch Fox: true. Also, if you let the hair regrow after trimming, the coarse feeling from the cut hair ends goes away, and the hair feels totally smooth again.

This topic is not great btw....nobody cares, really.
I love you ladies, but so far this show has been like gonorrhea of the ear.

@cosmickitty: they cant all be winners
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:30pm Caryn:

In my old apartment, I used to hate washing my hair, because I didn't have a showerhead of any kind. If I wanted to wash my hair, I had to do it while bathing (and you can never rinse your hair properly that way), or lean over the edge of the tub on your stomach, rest your head on the bottom of the tub, and try and wash under the tap. Sheesh.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:31pm cosmickitty:

No, no they can't. You guys still win though. Always.

I hate lifting food up to my own mouth when I'm eating. Just put the food in a bag and tie the bag to my face, already.

bubble bobble is a great game! Can't wait to play it on free play in Houston at the arcade and pinball expo.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Caryn - As kids, we didn't have a shower, either. Our mom bought an attachment that fit over the bathtub tap and it gave you a flexible spraying hose for hair rinsing.

I hate it when the Gigayacht is in for maintenance and I have to entertain on the Megayacht instead and Jeeves always forgets to stock the good caviar on it.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:33pm Caryn:

@madman: oh god, yes! Do you switch it forward, do you switch it back, have my appliances turned their clocks back or forward on their own or do I have to do it manually... A bunch of little annoyances rolled into one.

You've hit the mainstream of your demographic, Frangry. Good luck with th rest of the show ...
  Fri. 11/1/13 6:36pm Studying Korean:

Nope, nothing to see here.
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:36pm Caryn:

@Ken: yeah, I looked for one of those to no avail. Not to mention the archaic plumbing, which meant that it took half an hour to get the boiler to warm a small tank of water so you could wash up. Otherwise: freezing cold water.

Least fav menial task: Snaking clogged pipes...Last time I went to open the drain plug above me and got a face full of raw sewage, open mouthed.....disgusting!
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:50pm Caryn:

I always did wonder how guys clean their fleshlights. Does the bottom screw off so you can clean the inside properly or is it just a desperate, mostly unsuccessful attempt to rinse it out through the little top opening?

Former FMU DJ from back in the day
Avatar Fri. 11/1/13 6:54pm Danne D:

Crowe Archives: wfmu.org...

He used to have a regular show back in the 90s - I think he moved to Upstate New York which made keeping up the DJ thing at FMU difficult. Once in a while in recent years he's been an emcee during the marathon for Sarge.
