This is my attempt at fluff.  Sorry in advance if it's not fluffy enough.

1) What's the biggest event (Work, Social, Volunteef) you have ever organized? Do you like creating/hosting events, or would you rather just be an attendee?

2). What's the biggest home improvement kind of project you've ever attempted?  How did it go?  

3). Are you crafty?  Are you working on a project right now?  Tell us about it!

4)  What are you reading?

That would be the Mean Girl Telescope that you use when you are so confused that when someone's dh is accused of being gay Jam basically says, well Sav must have told us that....  Wow, I wouldn't let my kids get away with talking that kind of crap about anyone.  We aren't even Christians and they know better than to speak maliciously about their "neighbors" just for the pure joy of Meanness.  It's so ridiculous that it makes one have to come to understand that neither one of them understand pretty much...any of the drivel they talk about.

Apropos gay husbands, I should add that I usually have a gay husband in addition to the regular one, IOW a close male, gay friend. It is a necessity from the shoe angle, for example. My grandpa was totally hetero but had a real eye for good shoes. The only adequate replacement is a gay friend. Then there is dancing. I have no straight, male friends who dance, except one and he is 82. But all my gay friends are good and willing dancers and the bonus is that they don't try to cop a feel.

I know, right? I was kind of stunned when I turned it inside out and realized it was sewn w/a straight stitch and not serged. The fabric had completely frayed and given out. So I reinforced the seam w/a zigzag stitch. DD has grown 3 inches since Christmas, so I don't think she'll be wearing it much longer anyway...EPIC growth spurt for that one right now.

1) What's the biggest event (Work, Social, Volunteef) you have ever organized? Do you like creating/hosting events, or would you rather just be an attendee? I've done multiple class reunions, I do events for my alma mater regularly. I enjoy creating and hosting events, although usually not until the day of the actual event! ;)

2). What's the biggest home improvement kind of project you've ever attempted?  How did it go?

We've done a lot of little stuff to this house (lots of painting, refinishing floors, etc), finishing the basement was probably our biggest project here. I've basically gutted a rental and put it back together. That was pretty major, too. I'm addicted to the show Rehab Addict and would love to gut an old house like she does... My spring project is looking like replacing all of the carpeting on the 2nd floor w/hardwoods, putting new tile in two bathrooms and I'd like to repaint the majority of the first floor. After 10 yrs, it is just time to repaint.

3). Are you crafty?  Are you working on a project right now?  Tell us about it!

A little. I repaired DD's favorite dress yesterday. It was a t-shirt dress from Etsy. The vendor didn't use a serger so the seam separated b/c DD has worn the heck out of that dress.

4)  What are you reading?

I've got four books for OT class. So I'm reading a lot of OT & OT commentary right now.

So you've based this whole, "Oh yeah, ur husband is gay" thing on this one statement? 

Is English your second language?

When I was 22, my brother asked me if I was gay because I was very selective in who I dated. I wasn't/am not. I don't really think that comments or questions like that are a big deal, really.

You have to look at it through a super special magic telescope first then it will change what is actually said into the made up comments.

Nothing in that quote from 2004 says he's gay.
