    PS: Some might think it inappropriate to refer to my SO as Buffy. The source of the name came when I pitted her stock picks in an online contest against Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway Co. Her logon was:

    Buffy the Berkshire Killer

    BTW: She won

    Quite honestly, I haven't read a lot of his, four books tops, and probably eight years ago, so I don't remember specifics aside from him being really witty. I moved to him as an alternative to Christopher Moore (one of my all-time faves!!!)

    My mother does this as well, giving me size 14-24 clothing when I normally wear a size 4. I get my nose out of joint a bit about it as I did lose 60lbs about 7 years ago and she kept telling me I needed the larger sized clothes "just in case" I gained it all back and then some. Talk about support. :/
