How does it conflict? Were you hoping to have me all to urself?

I have no clue what she's after anymore... she just wants to spend increasingly more time together.

General rule of thumb - noodles are carbs, so a meal of Pho (or pasta) while you can go a low fat route, will be high in carbs. Unless you plan on doing some cardio following a high carb meal, it's best to avoid/go with something more balanced, as those unburied carbs will convert to fat.

Do you know the 30-30-40 breakdown?

I call shenanigans since he's able to drop everything and go out and eat pho.

Conflicts as in no self respecting man with sexual needs should be spending Valentine's with a girl who has no intention of giving up the poon

So either... she needs to give up the poon or you need to give up your balls

I've heard of you guys.

We're a tough crowd, since a good chunk of us are very cheap, we have access to cheap parts, a couple of us are good with tools and have them, and some of us have BMW diagnostics equipment. Most of our car work just gets done within our group, with only things like tire mounting, alignments, and custom exhaust work being outsourced.
