Alright, okay, good. Now it’s a deal. Stop crying. All right, rub my hand, do my hand. Good. I like that. That means that you have to rub it longer. Do you, do you mind? Rub it harder, though.

I am going to make a major investment into an apartment and half of the investment, although I really want to do it, is to do it with somebody and do it with you, otherwise we could probably get an apartment for six, seven hundred dollars, you know by myself but I probably wouldn’t get it if it was by myself, so it’s one of those things.

You know … you can’t be so wired. You can’t, you have to just break the steel wall, not even brick wall, a little bit. And I know you can’t, so we’ll leave it at that.

And, to your credit, wearing the shoes and buttoning your blouse, you know, I think it looks much nicer in general, and for you to do that, to me that was really nice, that was a really nice gesture, it really was, and I think you look much nicer in high heels than you don’t.

I really believe the work that you do or can do and have done, and if you get caught up in it, we could do a lot. But I want that intensity, and I want it to be a little bit adventurous, all right?

I probably have an attraction to you, and I have to deal with that, just like you said. That might sound terrible to you, but that is not the worst thing. If I thought you were terrible and ugly that might even be worse, or you might like that better, but that is something I will deal with, like you said.

Call Grimm on VAWA — TODAY!
We need YOU to call Grimm’s office today to make sure that he does! The good news is that CongressmanMichael Grimm signed onto a letter with 18 other Republicans urging the House leadership to take action on the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and pass a bill that “reaches all victims.”
The bad news
is that the House is considering another watered down version of VAWA
that will negatively impact protections for Native American women and strip out anti-discrimination language for LGBT individuals. This weakened version of the bill we be voted on THIS THURSDAY, February 28th!
Please, take a few minutes to call Grimm’s office (202.225.3371/local phone numbers below).
Here’s what you can say: I am a constituent from [Borough], New York, and my name is [______]. I’m calling about the Violence Against Women Act. I want to thank Congressman Grimm for signing a letter to demand action on VAWA and passing a bill that will reach all victims. I urge Congressman Grimm to stick to his convictions and vote NO on the House substitute bill and YES on the bipartisan Senate version of VAWA S.47. VAWA can and must protect all victims.

House Ethics Committee to Investigate Grimm
The House Ethics Committee said Monday that it would begin an inquiry into whether Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) violated campaign finance laws.
First though, the committee will defer to a separate investigation from the Justice Department, which is also looking into whether Grimm, who recently won reelection over Democrat Mark Murphy, is guilty of a number of infractions.
