I'm not sure where I even got the idea of organised protest from, but i had the notion that if we all ran around avoiding the nuns when they came out with the sleep mats, it would be harder for them to catch us and make us sit down. To add insult to injury, I had apparently learned the unexpurgated lyrics to "What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor" and taught them to my fellow nursery school inmates to sing while we ran around.

    My mother was thrilled.

    After that, I spent my days while my mother worked with two very nice Hungarian immigrants named Frank and Eva, who were, I believe, refugees from the suppression of the uprising of 1956. I believe my mother met them through her work with the YMHA (my mother had just begun her long flirtation with conversion to Judaism). They fed me delicious little pastries for tea and played 'liberate the masses' with me and my toys. I remember both these things quite well, especially charging the Mecchano battlements with my stuffed animals.

    I worked (and still occasionally work) in an establishment which, apart from the owner and myself, is staffed entirely by females (there was also a homosexual male manager until a few months ago which is when he moved city). All the entertainers are also female. In one of the 2 positions I work in, I oversee the entertainers, their requirements and safety. You very quickly become inured and conditioned to what many others would consider the 'largest attraction' to the job. Due to this, I'm treated as 'one of the girls' at that workplace.

    During secondary school, my core group of friends was predominantly female. I also studied a number of classes which had a greater proportion of females to males; chemistry and advanced mathematics being 2 such examples.
    On top of this, my tennis coach gave me the nickname of J.Lea while I was training with him and the rest of the tournament squad. At one point, he slipped and called out J.Lo instead. That nickname stuck around the courts and still persists.

    Looking elsewhere, I'm in a number of skype rooms where I am one of a few (i.e. 1 of 2) or the only male.

    The entertainment industry is one where full or partial nudity in certain circumstances becomes invisible. I have been both actor and stage manager with travelling rep companies, small theatres with not much privacy backstage, and so on. When you don't have private dressing rooms, or you have to do a quick change in the closest spot to your exit/entrance, you rapidly get used to just getting on with it, and nit caring who's nearby. And you equally get used to seeing people in various stages of undress, and it becomes completely unremarkable - because it's not erotic, it's getting on with the business.

    I remember working with one actor who used to "reassure" newer members of the company who were perhaps not quite acclimatised to dropping trou and changing costume with others around by saying "Don't worry, if I see something I've never seen before, I'll let you know."

    I tend to rural operations rather than urban.

    Scarecrow does not condone arson.

    I think that's a crime.

    But in Italian there's an expression: "La colpa dei nostri occhi," or "It's the fault of my eyes." It's for tfw you do something bad by accident because you were distracted by someone's good looking-ness. Is there an English expression to that effect?

    That doesn't also marginally-rudely imply that you were distracted by the other person's appearance, specifically, though!

    I request that we listen to good music rather than "digging" it.

    How about some Steely Dan?

    You're allowed to dislike them -- but that does make sense. I hope I never have this happen to me; there are some songs that are tied to particular times in my life, but none that are exceptionally negative.

    I was overreacting because I was being facetious

    It's very strange. It has been.... at least 30 years, but whenever I see or hear the name Steely Dan, I flash on an argument we had over their name. I had been listening to an album by the British folk-rock group Steeleye Span, and when he asked who they were and I told him, he started dissing them for ripping off Steely Dan - and he just kept on nagging me about liking a group of ripoff artists - despite the fact that Steeleye Span was formed three years before Steely Dan.

    Some things just stay in one's head. Maybe that was a turning point in our relationship, him showing how obnoxious he could be.

    Excel! So glad you could join us. Oven-fresh bread, butter, jam, and good company.... What a lovely little get-together.

    Anyone thirsty? I'm thinking of a tall glass of cold milk, but we have juice, tea, coffee....

    Brunch! Good at any time of day.

    And now I'll tell you what's against us, an art that's lived for centuries. Go through the years and you will find what's blackened all of history. Against us is the law with its immensity of strength and power - against us is the law! Police know how to make a man a guilty or an innocent. Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told will ever more be paid in gold - against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred and the simple fact that we are poor.
