    It's Valerie, we're very possessive (yet we can be sharing, too) about our computers. See, that just goes to show you cats know. (Sorry to hear about the vase.) Now, if ours could just differentiate between what is allowed in the house & what is strictly outdoor activity, he would be curled up on the couch instead of the back porch...

    Ok well I guess it's time to put things into perspective, and I feel I'm the man to do it. Ladies a good tip from Rhett Butler is if you'r man leaves the seat up and you fall in, in the middle of the night promptly wipe your butt of on his face. Men please aquaint yourself with my rules. Please note... these are all numbered "1"
    ON PURPOSE!
    guy's Rules for girls

    1. Learn to work the toilet seat.
    You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.
    We need it up, you need it down.
    You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

    1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon
    or the changing of the tides.
    Let it be.

    1. Shopping is NOT a sport.
    And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

    1. Crying is blackmail.

    1. Ask for what you want.
    Let us be clear on this one:
    Subtle hints do not work!
    Strong hints do not work!
    Obvious hints do not work!
    Just say it!

    1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

    1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it.
    That's what we do.
    Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

    1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem.
    See a doctor.

    1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.
    In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

    1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls,
    don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

    1. If you think you're fat, you probably are.
    Don't ask us.

    1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways
    and one of the ways makes you sad or angry,
    we meant the other one.

    1. You can either ask us to do something
    or tell us how you want it done.
    Not both.
    If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

    1. Whenever possible,
    please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

    1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.

    1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.
    Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit.
    We have no idea what mauve is.

    1. If it itches, it will be scratched.
    We do that.

    1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing,"
    we will act like nothing's wrong.
    We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

    1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to,
    expect an answer you don't want to hear.

    1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear
    is fine...Really.

    1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are
    prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation,
    or monster trucks.

    1. You have enough clothes.

    1. You have too many shoes.

    1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

    1. Thank you for reading this.
    Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;
    but did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive

    Times fun when you're having flys

    Did you take a poll of my wife for all those #1's? Man, that sounded way too familiar! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Getting back to toilets, since they are so near and dear to me, we ahd one that developed a leak, somewhere in the j-trap. I did the bucket thing for awhile and then decided to take things a part as well as use various adhesives. Nothing solved the problem. I called a friend who was well-versed in home improvement matters. He took it apart and we found several holes. I suggested we weld it. While putting the tank back on it slipped from his hand, falling on the porcelain bowl, taking out a couple pieces of it, right where the bolt holes for the seat came in. He suggsted epoxy, but it only held a couple days. Duct tape didn't work. I called every hardware and bathroom place around and most suggested just getting a new toilet or buying a clamp that no one had in stock. Since I don't like admitting defeat. I cam up with my own solution. I bought two bungie cords and wrapped them around the bowl. I epoxied and emplaced the two broken pieces. I then tied a shoestring to the bungie cords and trap to make sure the cords didn't slip, taking care of all the x, y, and z axis. It held together for six months. I would have continued had not my wife work out a deal with afriend to purchase a new toilet. The Philistines!! But the bungie cords and shoelace worked!

    Well! god's garden, I think that's a perfect example of male whining. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    jimscott, you just cited a perfect example of #1 - needing to fix something. Sounds like you did an excellent job! (I probably would have preferred a new toilet, too.)

    A color that won't be outdated in five years. Have you seen bathrooms that still have the seventies pea green toilets and tubs, yuck!
