10/19   Anyone have this experience before? A girl recently helped me
        out in buying clothes, getting a haircut, etc. with the presumption
        that she's trying to help me meet other girls. I've been alone
        for a while now, but I've had long term girlfriends in the past,
        so my instinct tells me that this girl isn't really that interested
        in "helping" me more than she might be interested in me. There are
        a couple of things she said that seem to be indicative of this,
        i.e. giving me positive comments about certain attributes, etc.
        Am I reading too much into this? Or should I just ask her out and
        be done with it? I mean, why would a girl help out a guy get another
        girl if she likes him and she's available?
        \_ Why?  Maybe she's bored and wants a project.  It *does* sound like
           she's into you though.  Pay attention to other subtle cues to tell
           if she's flirting with you or just needs a hobby.
        \_ It could be she thinks of you more as a pet.
        \_ it doesn't mean anything.
        \_ buying clothes? haircut? my god. She thinks you're her girlfriend.
           If she has real interests in you she will not ask you to
           do things she knows that most straight men hate-- shopping.
           She's asking you because you seem to have good taste
           and/or that you're more well refined than most men out
           there (this is a euphemism that she doesn't think you're
           manly). Buddy, go ahead and waste your time on her. Hope
           for the best but be prepared to be nothing than a shopping
           bag carrier.                     -been there done that
           \_ Speak for yourself. OP describes something like where I was 3 yrs
              ago with a girl. We got married last year.
                \_ Hope she doesn't like shopping for heavy items too much.
              \_ Congrats!
           \_ Yeah, I had a situation like that which eventually turned
              into a fun fling. She had a b/f when we first met though,
              so I didn't think anything of it. But eventually she broke
              up with him and we went out for a while.
              up with him and we went out for a while when she was on the
              rebound. Nothing serious came of it though.
        \_ It's 50/50.  Could be she wants you, could be you're just a little
           pet project for a bored chick.  Give it a shot.  We can't tell you
           more not knowing either of you.
        \_ The answer to all motd dating questions: Ask her out!
           Seriously. Otherwise, you will never know. Heck, even if she's
           not interested you may end up doing her when she's feeling more
           desperate and she remembers you were interested. If you don't
           show interest you're definitely not getting laid.

3/21    Is there a reason why women love junk mail and spam mail? I helped
        my family members get rid of Red Plum, Valassis, DMA, etc and
        everyone's junk mail has decreased significantly, however all the
        women in my life (wife, sister, mother) are pissed at me. Ditto with
        email spam: through their permissions I unsubscribed mailing lists,
        but now they want them back again because they're missing out on some

8/2     Where's the closest Chick-Fil-A to San Francisco? I need to
        go there and make out with my boyfriend.        -gay
        \_ Chick-Fil-A is a place for people who want to Fil(l)-A-Chick. :-)
        \_ Why do you want to watch a bunch of fat White Trash eating
           greasy food?

        "One boy is serving six to 18 months in a non-secure facility in
        Westchester, while the other is doing six to 16 months in a
        therapeutic group home."

1/21    I have never been to the Caribbean. My gf has been to Puerto Rico
        and the Dominican Republic only. We'd like to vacation there as
        we'll be in Florida for another reason anyway and it's a quick
        flight over. Does anyone here have recommendations for which
        island to visit? Barbados? Aruba? Virgin Islands? I realize timing
        is bad with the disaster in Haiti, but I can't help that.

10/11   Are there any CSUA'ers in NYC, or who know things to do in NYC? steven
        and I are doing the tourist thing.
        \_ I thought the Empire State Building was much better than I
           expected it to be. The museums are all stellar, especially the
           Met, MoMA, and Natural History Museum.  Lots of good
           plays/shows/concerts. Top notch restaurants. Worth seeing the Statue

5/30    I've got 15 hours in Paris (2pm to 5am their time) on a layover.
        I have never been to Paris. What should I do with my time? The
        Orsay Museum is open until 10pm Thursdays and I will be there on
        a Thursday, so that is one option. I heard a Seine cruise is nice.
        Any other ideas?
        \_ The Musee D'Orsay is great (and reminiscent of Doe Library,

5/17    Has anyone else noticed that today's teenaged girls are freakishly
        tall? The stats may not bear that out because of changing demographics
        in this nation (influx of shorter peoples) but even traditionally
        short races like Asian are taller than they were. Today I noticed
        at least 4 girls over 6' tall at the grocery store (two different
        stores) doing shopping with their dads. (I guessed these women were
