Ok, she said, how do I cook the pasta?
Yes, you read that right, Ehellions, a college freshman who had no idea how to cook pasta.

Um - there are usually instructions on the back of the packet. I'd be more concerned about a high school graduate who doesn't know how to read...


I had a friend help me once w/ a cake; she'd never cooked anything at all. So I persuaded her that she could simply follow the directions on the cake mix box.

She'd read off the ingredients, and I'd say, "Oh, the butter's here; the eggs are in the fridge."

Then we got to the point where it told her to add the cake mix.

She said--kid you not--"Where's the mix?"

in the box.

I think Tallone could also have turned to those kids and said, "the *other* guys who buy pink ice cream are the ones who have hot women waiting for them."

For crying out loud, a guy can't like strawberry ice cream? 

I know. When he said pink icecream I imaged it was bubble gum or cotton candy flavor. Strawberry would have never occured to me as being a 'girly' icecream.

If anything, in my mind chocolate is more girly. Probably because strawberry is my dad's favorite flavor of ice cream, and whenever I eat chocolate he always comments that the love of chocolate is a sex-linked thing. He isn't sexist, he's just trying to get my goat, but it never works because I agree that it is.

Good for you!  ;D
Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.

That story is awesome. :D

And I don't see how strawberry ice cream is a girly flavor, either...[and the only cotton candy ice cream I've seen was at Maggie Moo's and it was blue. Probably still 'girly' though. :P ]

Let me see, most of the men in my family have always loved strawberry ice cream, and out of those men, we have several Army, Marines, Airforce, and racecar drivers in the ranks.  Gee willikers, but it's a shame they're so dad-gum un-manly  ::).
