Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

You've actually said, in this very thread, that you only work for the money.

And? That was NOT her original question.

You're right, boys clothes are cut differently than girls too.  Not rocket science nor does it refute my statement about a boyish figure.

Well, what's written about here is only a snippet of people's lives, so you really can't make any conclusions about the use of one's degree -- or really about much of anything.

Oh my gosh, totally.  There's just no comparison.  I hate to be an expert on something so mundane, but there it is!!!   I am.  First, PKA only has sons, older sons, so that means shopping in the mens department.  Regardless, she wouldn't know from the girls department.  And my children obviously all wear clothes from the kids department.  For my older dd there is no room ~ no room ~ in tops and dresses for Queenwannabees' wanna-have C cups!!  That was never a possibility!  My oldest is tall and skinny!  They're children's clothes.   Basically, even with all of the pretending on the internet, a short petite woman cannot invent things.  If someone volunteers and wants to compliment herself for still fitting into clothes from the kids department, then there's just no pretending she has some voluptuous womanly figure with womanly breasts!  Too funny!  

And the many, many photos on the internet don't lie.  I don't understand why someone would volunteer and ?? brag for pages and pages and pages here that she still wears kids clothes.  But there's no way the other allegations were ever gonna pass the smell test!

Thardy, I didn't realize you were transgendered and in a fraternity as an undergrad. Since, as you clearly do NOT know, an alumnus by definition has a penis. Which means there was no alumnus pulling strings for $$$ from your "sorority" nationals. Your whole story is so far removed from any sort of reality as to how sorority (or fraternity life) works that it is beyond laughable and really just sad.

Thank you for getting what I meant.  His work is different, yes but that doesn't dismiss the fact that many(most?) people with advanced degrees are doing a lot more than what people write about here.

Well, I didn't say you said it.  I said that's how it can be interpreted.  

Assumptions, assumptions. You know what assume means, I am sure Laughing
