    Good news, MoN. :thumb: And with a ratio like that, you can't lose in the find-love department. :D

    Doesn't matter ... when MoN starts his new job in the Sex Department at the Dutch Revenue Service, he's sure to find love. :p

    So if you're a male in an all-female department, then the odds will be good... but are the goods odd?

    :lol: Hahaha! This is funny! :D

    I asked a similar question during my interview :p Appears that Finding Love Dep't is part of Human Resource and Finding Sex Dep't is part of Facility Management, which is my department.

    :D Merlanni, I've done that for years at a health insurance company and an energy supplier. I decided I wanted something else and applied at the revenue service. :D

    Congtats MoN, good for you ! Disposable income is so awesome.

    I'm in a similar situation at Uni, there's way more female students then male in linguistics for some reason. In one class in particular, there's only 5 dudes (including me) compared to 30 girls. Most teacher knows my name only because there's so few men.

    And I thought they knew it because I was clever and awesome and handsome, that was en ego crush :lol:

    not that I'm not all those thing :p

    I bet you are, Flix. :D

    I know since today what I am not: One of the few men. Don't worry: I'm still male. I'm just not the only one. There's a lot of old geezers where I work. So that makes me one of the younger men. The femmes in the building don't seem to mind some fresh meat and since quite some of them are not too bad (not bad at all!), things should be quite alright. :p

    Helped my buddy move a large pile of firewood and brush last weekend. Now I have Poison Ivy all over my body. I HATE poison ivy. My hands are covered in it so much that I couldn't shoot in my weekly pool game last night. I started to give him a ton of grief about it, but apparently he has it worse off than I do. His boys are itching. His new nickname is..... "Scratchy Balls". Which is ironic as he sucks at pool as well. :D

    Wine flu ? You mean like, a hangover ? Yeah I rarely get those, It's like I'm missing out on an essential part of life.

    Well I'm so compassionate Silvery that I will give myself a hangover for tomorrow just to share in your misery ... I swear I'm Mother Theresa incarnated with all these good deeds I do.

    The best method against hangovers that I know is to drink lots of water before going to bed.

    Just saw an add for a receptionist job at a cat hotel -- what is wrong with people ? Why would you even do such a thing ? Oh and I hate cats and I'm allergic to them. At first I thought "Meh I could work in a hotel for the time being, until I graduate" but that was before I noticed it was for cats. The hell ?

    Aren't cat hotels just some sort of boarding kennels? Those need receptionists, too, I guess. Or someone to answer the phone and welcome people at their desk. I find dog masseurs far more disturbing...
