181. all speculation --
Edited on Thu Oct-30-08 01:29 PM by xchrom
rachel and what she wears when not at work are two extraordinarily different worlds.
more you have no idea from the things she said what she likes to wear in every circumstance.

it was freudian -- to say the least -- to speculate in the OP about someone else 'tarting' her up.
it was a fucked up personal projection.
