    But sad that your word wasn't good enough until it was confirmed by Newsweek.

    I can buy board shorts for women here--they're sold more for people who are into paddling sports and stuff like that where you're in and out of the water, but I've seen women in them at the local pool too. I own a pair and would hate to swim laps in them, though--I wear them at the beach or for canoeing.

    T-shirts are generally banned in the pool here for men and women unless they're rashguards that are meant for swimming use. I've never seen a man in the pool in a t-shirt and normal shorts, and any of the more serious swimmers are in either the brief-style swimsuits or the snug swim trunks. Maybe men around here are less modest or something, but the board shorts tend to mostly be on the young guys who think they look cool. Even then, the ones in better shape seem to tend toward the European-style snug shorts.

    Something that really surprised me is the demonizing of broccoli in TV, movies and stuff
    Like the kids go "aeew" at it
    Broccoli f'ing rocks.

    Meh, she's been off wheat for a while- which has gotten my cousin and sister off wheat as well. I just thought the "Wow, it's just what you were saying!" was funny. Uh huh. Told ya I wasn't making this up.

    I read that article also. Not Newsweek, though. DH and I both got a chuckle out of it.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Lol, well thats easy to laugh at at first glance, but I cant also help but think that maybe he is genuinely hurt or handicapped in some way but still wants to do the right thing for his dog, no matter how weird it looks. If that was the case then I have to give props to that.

    As for the topic of shaving, I actually love it. Love love love. I love the ritual of lathering and smoothing and exfoliating, and how shiny and smooth everything is after. I shave all sorts of interesting patterns into my "place," as I call it euphamistically. I even go to lengths to pluck stray hairs, body and eyebrows. Yeah, it hurts, but it doesnt hurt as much as some other things I do for fun. *thoughtful pause*

    ...Anyway, this love of shaving runs counter to my early experience as a kid, as I matured rather fast in middle school but was way too much of a tomboy to be interested in doing anything remotely feminine. I didnt shave my legs, but a few other girls didnt either so I largely got off lightly, but then it came out that I didnt shave my armpits either, and then mocking became *relentless.* I finally relented around 8th grade, but it still upsets me to think how vicious and *angry* the other kids were that I wasnt doing the exact same things they were doing and expected of me. I understand it a little more intellectually now: its a base, animal instinct, coming from a drive to have a defined sense of Group. Obviously, a good chunk of our culture never becomes self aware of the reason behind such impulses and remains in such a stunted phase.

    So, anyway, to this day, I specifically try not to be judgemental of other people's body hair life choices. Luckily, though, I live in San francisco, where you can literally dye your pubes bright pink, braid them, string beads on them, and walk around fully naked in public and not be arrested. Sure youll get some looks, but then thats why people do such a thing in the first place around here.

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
