Am I the only one who wants to shower in the evening but finds it more convenient in the morning because I like having hot water?

there is no way i could go to work feeling clean if i didn't fully shower. an evening shower is more of a relaxation ordeal. the morning shower is a necessity for not feeling like the stinky kid.


and what's up with the lack of hot water in the evenings?

I occasionally think I want to work on one of those crab boats in the arctic / north pacific / north atlantic where they work their butts off for 20 hours, get a couple hours rest on rolling seas, then do it again and again until the cargo hold is full. Just to see if I can hack it.

But the prospect of being dragged down to the bottom of the sea and passing out from hypothermia, before I drown because my leg got caught on a crab pot line as it was cast overboard, really makes me want to reconsider the venture... if only a little.



I've also wondered if I could ever be calm enough to wear a "beard of bees".
I'll ask Santa next week to add it to my Christmas wish list.

You watched the "Deadliest Catch" marathon last weekend.

I've been watching Discovery Channel's Everest show (I've always had a fascination with it) and have wondered for a while if I'd be able to do it.

I've seen some shows on A&E or whatever channel in the past couple years. Don't know if it was that show or "dirtiest jobs". But I had read about it before then.

IDK. Honestly, Planet of the Apes, when originally made, was pretty cutting edge commentary on not only racial relations, but also the conflict between the military-industrial complex vs. the intellectual class, hawk vs. dove, etc.

I remember planet of the apes action figures - smaller versions of "Big Jim" and "GI Joe".

I'd wear a planet of the apes halloween costume in a heartbeat.

Hmmm... I suppose my wife and I are odd then. I can count on both hands the times we have been apart for a night (or more) since the birth of our eldest. But prior to that... travel, work, excursion fun. Kids make it less so, but heck, I've been to Atlanta, Vegas, NY, Jersey and Toronto on my own since our daughter was born. Then throw in the wife going to NYC, Charleston, and Toronto on her own.... heck, if she hadn't gone to see her best friend with our son in tow, I would have never resurfaced our hardwood.

There's something you can do BGM: resurface a floor.

I shower in the morning. Long curly hair does not allow for evening showering.

Yeah, I have to shower in the morning, even if I'm going to the gym immediately after.



You all haven't seen my hair in the morning - it's a necessity. And no - I really don't like wearing hats to the gym.


I transitioned from a before-bed shower-er-er to a wakeup shower-er-er in high school.

Done it, no thanks. Plus, we have fake wood floors. They need mopping, not resurfacing.

Believe me, I'd much rather have real wood floors. Those are sweet. But, for somewhere between 1/3 and 1/4 the price, we went with fake.

routine....

coffee and smoke

electric razor, brush teeth

Shower and finish shaving w/ a straight razor ...

In the last 2 years Ive traveled a ton for work, we had hoped that HG could tag along because she works from home, but it hasnt really worked out.. If I am still w/ this company when I am retirement age, the plan is to get a traveling job and we just travel the country on the company dime..

I used to shower in the morning but now that I am unemployed I shower whenever I ****ing feel like it.

Which is odd because sometimes I shower at 4 and go to the gym at 5:30 with my hair still wet.

Yep. I can't get a brush through my hair unless it's wet and been conditioned...and I sleep with braids.

If I didn't shower in the "morning" (ok, some days it's 1 in the afternoon, but I don't leave the house un-showered.) I'd be paranoid that I smelled bad all day long. If I could, I'd also take a long hot bath every evening.

Same here. I'd rather shower, workout, then shower again. And I used to be the shower before bed, so I could sleep until 10 minutes before the bus came in High School. I can't even imagine that anymore.

Continuing a discussion from the old OT thread, I just downloaded the No Scripts thingy for Firefox and a pop-up blocker because I just tried to access HF and this PDF thing just came onto my browser and totally locked up my computer.

Probably should run a virus scan too. Sigh.

This about sums it up for me. Being a student and having long hair, it's a hassle to shower in the morning because then I go to class with wet hair or I have to wake up earlier to dry it. I generally shower after class or in the evenings.

welcome zenwolf. you mentioned the term "sums" in your first post evar, and since it's a math term, you're AOK in my book.


and i can deduct from your post that you are either a college female OR michael bolton's son.
