Got this and just wanted to share it because it's quite funny bear_original gotta agree with No.4 there hehe and i love No.9  :P

Non-living Things Have a Gender.........
1)  Ziploc Bags -- They are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
2)  Copiers -- They are Female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm them up again. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.
3)  Tire -- Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.
4)  Sponges -- Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.
5)  Hot Air Balloon -- Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there's the hot air part.
6)  Web Page -- Female, because it's always getting hit on.
7)  Subway -- Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.
8)  Hourglass -- Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
9)  Hammer -- Male, because it hasn't changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.
10)  Remote Control -- Female...... Ha! You thought it'd be male. But consider this --it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying

MMMMMMMMM . . . I've been sneaking in the Halloween candy.  All of is is chocolate except for the peanut butter kisses.  MMMMMMMM . . . chocolate/peanut butter - does it get any better?  Oh yes . . . the very darkest chocolate possible!!!

Funny!   bear_grin  bear_grin  That's cool that your dad worked in a chocolate factory.  Did he eat a lot of the merchandise?   bear_grin 

My great grandfather uses to own an ice cream factory that was called Illinois Valley Ice Cream.  My mom used to love to go there because he would let her pick out whatever she wanted.  I wish that company was still around (I think he sold it) so I could pick out whatever I want!  bear_grin

Penny I definatelly understand your feelings about all this Pipa's choccie. When I was a student my campus were right next to the CHOCOLATE FACTORY!!! Can you belive that! I think that was made on purpose to torture students....
I remember that chocolate smell even now. Soooo yami...

omg Sue Ann - you have exactly the same chocolate tastes as my for me, I HATE chocolate/peanut butter combination.  My sister flew back through the States this year and bought home lots of Reese's candy...I'm such a wuss that I could only nibble at the corner of a peanut butter m&m and had to throw the rest away and how big are those?????

It's bizarre, becuase I love chocolate and I love peanut butter but I don't like the two combined.  Oddly, I love peanut slabs which are a kiwi chocolate bar - roasted peanuts in whitakers chocolate = it's about an inch think and mmmmmmm.

Oh yes - wow - your sister has exquisite taste, Melissa!!  Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were what I was raiding the Halloween candy for!!!  I always buy trick or treat candy that I like . . . just in case there's a whole lot left after Halloween.  Looks like there may not be enough left before Halloween!!!   bear_rolleyes  bear_rolleyes  bear_ermm    bear_tongue

You girls have got me craving some chocies :P

I'm a dark chocolate person too.....but I'll eat milk if there's nothing else.....but.....have you had Tim Tams?????

YUMMY biscuits (cookies)

Whenever we have overseas 'Doggie people' staying and we introduce them to Tim Tams we are forever being begged to 'send us some of those chocolate things PPPLLLEASE"

I guess I can search the pantry and find SOMETHING I need down at the store so I have to go down there....and while I'm there.....

Penny - stop licking your screen the drool is running already  :lol:

Chrissie - Nope my dad didn't eat the produce. he never was a big sweet eater *Gasp*.. it must have skipped a generation and hit me instead lol.. my Ma worked in a sweet factory too for awhile, she used to eat the sweets LOL (but so did the other gals) honestly. i's no wonder im a chocoholic it's in my blood *wink*

Julia - OH how did you work with the smell of chocolate next door all day i would not be able to concentrate !!!!!!!!!

Glenys - oh no..not the dreaded Tim-Tams !!!!! LOL I've never had one but a gorup of girls in a bear gorup have been talking about them all week  hehehe

I dont like peanut butter and chocolate either. a friend of mine from america sent me some peanut butter and jam (or peanut butter and jelly) oh my that was the most awful combination i've ever ate LOL!

The only thing to be eaten with peanut butter is........


Just try it in a sandwich and you'll be hooked,
unless of course you are one of those very strange people who hate Marmite  bear_wacko

You guys are  WAY too funny.
My favorite thing is chocolate and  nuts. Any kind of nuts.
So I end up making my own chocolates.
I ALWAYS have chocolate chips around, so I melt the chips ( any kind ) and add in whole nuts that I've toasted. I call them nut clusters. hehehe sooo good.

ANd for those of you that can't eat sugar, this is perfect to use with sugar free chocolate.

Just my tip of the day.
