We all have different needs. I personally find comfort in familiar things, so yeah, you guys would find me horribly boring. That's okay, though, because I'M not bored.

There are hunters, and there are gatherers, then one day some prehistoric genius invented farming; and nothing’s been the same since!

Many people are content to eat meatloaf every Monday, chicken every Tuesday, pasta every Wednesday, fish every Thursday, etc., etc., and always with mashed potatoes and either peas or carrots on the side (need that variety, right?) Oh... and a basket of bread on the table.
Get up at 6:30, eat breakfast (same one every day) go to work, get home at 5:30, eat dinner at 6:00, sit in front of the TV until 11pm, then go to bed. Every day. It's a good life for them. No surprises. No problems. No worries.

I'd rather stick a needle in my eye.

I'm one of these people . I like to keep the dinners interesting though by trying new recipes all the time. The rest is definitely my family. Get up at 6:10, feed kids at 6:15, leave for work at 7am, get home at 4:45, make dinner ready by 6:30 when the hubby gets home, showers/baths at 7:30, watch tv until 10pm, go to bed.

Yesterday commute was a great reminder that wearing a skirt when riding a bicycle is a good way to tell who are the jackasses that I'll encounter on my way

And yet, I had a knee length leggings under said skirt

You really don't even need to wear a skirt to get those reactions. Any tight pair of pants, shorts, capris, etc...

My husband always gives me crap for wearing low-cut tops. I keep telling him there's nothing to see anyway .

I mean do people really have to slow down, open their window and scream things that when they can be clearly heard are not supposed to be repeated in front of children?

I don't want men sharing parts of their thoughts out loud when I'm walking in the street, not that it's happening to me that often. When did that become alright?

It has never been alright.

I am sorry you encountered such rude behavior samhy.

Hear, hear!

I also think that skinny jeans are more revealing, which makes the point that it's only in their heads.
Good for you Pookeysgirl for wearing what you like and not what will make you invisible
