you're off too!!! damn.

anyway, she probably isn't using a recipe. like almost all our meals we just improvise as we go along. both of us love to cook, and we actually have been known to fight over who gets to make dinner. loser has to do dishes.

I'm not sure a "dessert" discussion is appropriate here.

You can't put lycra in the dryer? <confused jyo look>

Tim, don't ever marry her. She's perfect the way she is.

What time should I be over for dinner?

Well, for one, I haven't had a working dryer in about 8 years. But even if I did, I follow the label's advice. I don't dare risk messin' up the fit, or my chamois. Would result in unhappy bits!

Besides, they air-dry rather quickly.

jyo! You have learned well from Vega-look-master. <serious Vega look>

I'm not sure what you have on your mind Ron, but I like whipped cream on my dessert.

My wife just brought our 5 year old to eat lunch with me. It was the best lunch I have had in a long time.

Um.....why not?

I've been washing my bike clothes (jerseys and lycra pants) in normal wash and dryer for a few years and never had a problem.

Interesting....I've never had a problem.

Then again, I'm probably a tad smaller than when I bought them so I may not have noticed.
