    ---------------------------

    Orientation : Straight
    Body type : 6' 2"

    sexual orientation: straight = not gay person = heterosexual.

    I resnt the way abbreviations reflecting a particularly limited worldview are infiltrating the world of social networking software. I'm 'in a relationship' with my desk, but no exchange of bodily fluids is involved.

Anyway, I have to disagree with you Bob, because as long as you touch your desk, your colourless saline moisture excreted by the sweat glands will remain there until the desk is cleaned. Likewise, infinitesimal parts of the keyboard, mouse, etc, gets stuck on your skin (there's also heat exchange). Of course, most of the exchanged fluid comes from you, which suggests you are the "male" in this relationship. Lucky you.

    I am just kidding.
    Have a good day.

    Sorry about the typo. It reminds me of the period in my life when I thought 'misled' was the regular past simple of the verb 'to misle' (pronounced /maɪzǝl/ )

    to mislead - misled - misled
    to misle - ?

    I found this:

    MISLE
    v. i. 1. To rain in very fine drops, like a thick mist; to mizzle; to drizzle. [imp. & p. p. Misled ; p. pr. & vb. n. Misling .]

    Could you shed some like on it?

    Thanks

    Re: orientation : straight

    When my children were in school, orientation was a class in which they learned to read a map, and using a compass when they went on a hike in the forest.

    What'd be the past tense of 'to misle'?
