    There's nothing wrong with getting paid to be sexy.

    Lucky for me there are other professions, too, though.

    Yeah, work in fast food and you have the same complaints. Get told what to wear, even if you hate it and it's unattractive and feels demeaning. Get told what to do and dumb shit to say. Sex workers have potentially more autonomy than fast food workers, but a JOB is for most people being paid to do whatever you are ordered to do.

    ^^ Exactly. It's just that society is still hung up about sex.

    What do you mean: "just" ?! Making a really good pizza is an art!


    Rick, I think you shouldn't underrate yourself. The most sexy part of a male is well developed in you: the brains =)

    Well most jobs fufil a need from making Pizza to working in an office bulding. Though we don't always see the need for each others roles.

    I thought MacLeod was ancient?

    :: pats MacLeod gently ::

    And truly, some of us have a very broad definition of sexy. But when you look around it seems you don't actually meet people or see media messages which tell you this.

    True. The mass media always reduces everything to the lowest common denominator.

    Duncan MacLeod was born on winter solstice 1598, Connor MacLeod was roughly 200 years older - babies compared to Amanda Darieux who was born around 1150 or Methos who's 5000+

    (never challenge a Highlander [the series, not the movies] fan :D )

    I wish someone would make me a sandwich. Or 300 sandwiches. I like rye.

    how about starting a sandwich recipe thread? Sandwiches aren't that popular in my country but as they make a good office or picknick food they are certainly interesting for many of us foreigners.

    Rye WITH caraway seeds. Jarlsberg or similar cheese. Mustard, preferably dijon style. Thin roast beef or pastrami or similar. Excellent lettuce (not iceberg) or thin cucumber.

    Ooh, does that have a name?

    I'm just going to post a recipe for a Cuban Sandwich, since it's a common sandwich but very good (and perhaps not known elsewhere):

    Mustard
    Dill Pickles
    Baked Ham
    Roast Pork
    Swiss Cheese

    Butter the outside of the bread and grill each side until golden brown (ideally in a Panini press).

    Obligatory pic found on the internet:

    It's more of a Cuban Club. It has three pieces of toast and apparently bacon too.

    Sandwiches don't have names in Australia :lol: That's just my ideal nosh.

    I love all those pickles on that sandwich! Not a fan of panini pressing things personally, I'd probably put that one on rye or sourdough thin toast. That thing looks delicious.

    I will make you 300 sandwiches, teacake, as long as you don't ask for Vegemite on them.

    You haven't lived until you've had grilled cheese and vegemite. That's just a fact.

    So does that mean I'm posting this message while not alive? :eek:

    Ok...teacake, do you like pastrami? I'm totally up for that.
