Want to ban the perfume ads, too?

Just kidding; I'm a fragrance addict.

I don't have a functioning TV, so I don't know about fragrance ads, but the radio is overrun with jewelry ads.

Well, I just deleted my account with OK Cupid. They sent me an email tonight suggesting that I "go out with a bang," pun intended, since the world is ending tomorrow. Stay classy, guys.  ::) Also: way to rub salt in the wound. We're done. (I'm sure that upsets them terribly.)

Oh, ew. I will rethink using them.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

LOL. Awesome, maybe they just save it for the really hopeless cases.

I'd be honored to join the group, being happily single for over a year now and with no burning desire to change my status. I am a project manager in a large manufacturing facility, I perform my own home repairs, I installed my own car stereo (over 500 Watts), and I own more power tools than most construction contractors. I'm a woman who has become the man I used to want to marry  ;D

Welcome!  I salute you!  Don't know if I'll ever install my own car stereo, but I do dream of owning a bunch of power tools, (I'm currently dreaming of a hand held drill), as I just got started building my collection of tools up last year.  I never thought I would need my own set because when I did share living space with a boyfriend he always had a set.  All I ever had was a small set geared towards women, with a small hammer, screwdrivers, etc.  My first thing to snag was a normal hammer, and man do I love it.

You've got a good start on the tool collection! I started out by getting the Sears Craftsman Club card and watching for sales on their tools. First it was a hammer, screwdriver sets, then a collection of wrenches, a level, an electric drill, and more and more until I had to buy a tool chest for everything. Oh, and the shop vac, which can also be used as a leaf blower.

I, uh, definitely own more tools and have more construction/home improvement/car repair skills than any of my male friends. 

However, while dating, I've noticed that many men actually find this to be attractive.

Merry Christmas to my fellow spinsters who celebrate today!  :)  I hope you're all doing OK - or better than OK! 

My holidays this year turned out to be the "alone but not lonely" kind, for which I'm thankful, because if ever I get down in the dumps about being single, it almost always happens at Christmas time, and it's No Fun At All when that happens.  I've had a lot of interesting things happen lately and am starting some new projects, which are keeping me occupied and happy.  I'll be with friends later in the day for their dinner and gift exchange, and they don't make me feel like a fifth wheel, so - this holiday season gets a B+/A- from me.  :)

Home alone with a cold.  Called Brunhilde yesterday afternoon to let her know and didn't realize then that I would feel even worse today.

Off to make more tea.

Had to work all day today, and have to work tomorrow, preventing me from visiting my family (partly my own fault, because I volunteered to work to avoid the extended family, only to find out that my immediate family also had enough of them and aren't going there this holiday either.)

I am spending my holiday with my favorite boys:  my cats and Dean and Sam Winchester (I've gotten two episodes behind on Supernatural!)

Well I am not in a relationsh!p again.  Just two busy people that can't/won't commit to more but I am okay with it.  Will probably try again in the spring when we both slow down a bit.

Spent Christmas day with my daughters & grandsons.  We all cooked a little and cleaned up a little so none of us were overwhelmed with cooking or cleaning.  We all got a good nap, the weather was horrendous so we all stayed indoors, it was pleasant. 

So for us three - the only males in sight are 6 months and 3 years old, ha,ha.
