Let the Good Times Roll by Guy Kawasaki: "Always use the toilet in an airplane after a woman. This is getting a little vertical, or horizontal, depending on how you want to look at it. Simply put, men pee on the seat. Women don't. And if a woman follows a man who peed on the seat, then she will clean it up before she sits down. If you sit down after her, you're good to go--so to speak."

good advice for my sister and dtc!

'Brokeback' breach for repressed men / Film's message -- this could be you: "'See, now I am feeling terribly guilty. I have a beautiful wife with a brain, three incredible kids, a house the size of Rhode Island, and I risk everything to try to recapture what never even happened after the kiss I shared over 30 years ago. Are any of your clients conflicted like this, or do I just have rural attitudes toward sex that L.A. hasn't yet killed?'

The man who e-mailed me this shortly after the third time we got together probably knew the answer to his question as certainly as you do now: No.

No, he's not my first client blindsided by the drive to get beyond the perceived impossibilities of the past and the choking commitments of the present."

brokeback mountain! who wants to see it!!!

In defense of procrastination - Yahoo! News: "Interestingly enough, many procrastinators are also high achievers. Students at elite colleges tend to lollygag more than their peers at less selective institutions do. Brilliance and writer's block seem to go hand in hand. This is a topic I shall return to after I leaf through some catalogs for running gear and consider, over a piece of cake, whether to take up jogging."

this sounds like my sister... she is waiting the last minute to finish up her mba apps!!!
