    If by some stroke of the gods, the person who has the power of this decision resting in his or her hands is a straight male (or a gay female, for that matter), I have been told, by both genders, that I am a VHW (very hot woman), and I will flirt shamelessly with you all evening. If, on the other hand, fate is not with me and the decider is a straight female (or a gay male), I will find a hot single guy to invite (sexual orientation to be determined) to flirt shamelessly with you all evening. How’s that for flexibility?

  60. Austin May 31, 2013 at 10:35 #

    I defend my masters thesis on the 6th, and this would be the perfect way to celebrate!

  61. Kristi May 31, 2013 at 11:04 #
