Now that I've caught up... it's time for memewhoring  
"I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself, anything at all, it doesn't have to be inspiring or anything like that, just something I might not know. I'd be utterly gobsmacked it if every single person who friended me did this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal."

I grew up without Cable TV. Then I had it for a while.

I prefer life without it.

I grew up without cable TV, and now have more channels than I can keep track of. But I'm starting to question whether it's getting in the way of the rest of my life too much.
Eric Franklin: phoenixgamethyme on December 15th, 2003 04:04 pm (UTC)
... which is precisely why I got rid of it.

No TV = More Time For Gaming
And reading.
And writing.

Complete agreement.

I miss very few things about TV in general.
And most of those shows got canned.
The rest are getting DVDs.
So really. Not missing it.

i'm tired of being pregnant and having to be responsible. i want to go out and get good and drunk; just once i'd like to have someone drive ME around while i'm drinking. then again, i only have untilf ebruary, and i'm giving life to something beautiful, so i guess i shouldn't complain.

i whine too much, but it doesn't take genius to figure that out, does it? *grin*

From what I can tell, whining too much is what most of LJ is FOR.

No stranger has ever purchased a drink for me in a bar. I had my first offer about a month ago.
St. Sean the Amusedseanb on December 15th, 2003 03:55 pm (UTC)
Well, no stranger has ever bought ME a drink either. And I've never bought a drink for a stranger....

I guess I'm just not the proper barfly type.

I got treated like the DUFF for so many years, I just got used to it I guess. Someone offered a few weeks ago and I about peed my pants.

I am currently on hold at the UW Extension advising officce about setting up an apointment to go back to school.
Lady Doomlithera on December 15th, 2003 04:05 pm (UTC)
I have this intense desire to go back to school and learn more things. Part of it is from an extreme love of learning and another part of it is from a fear that I will never find anything again that I am as good at as I was at school.

If I had the choice, I would spend my days being in school and doing artsy fartsy things with clay.

My family, as a kid, lived off of spaghetti for about 2 months while my dad was out of work. I remember my folks fighting a lot back then, but everything worked out eventually.

I didn't eat my first Twinkie until I was fifteen. I didn't have a happy meal until I was nine. I drank my first Coke when I was six.

This one is a fairly easy question to answer since I do not know you that well.
I grew up on an Indian Reservation and lived there until I was 22 and moved to Bellingham. I'm barely Native American though, not enough to be considered Tribe. Just was the random white chick.

when we lived in Spokane, I was in... 1st or 2nd grade. we made potatoes at school (no clue why) and I ate a bite of mine. It was burning hot, but rather than spit it out, I swallowed it. Burned the crap out of my throat, and I ended uphaving to eat nothing but yogurt for a few days.

I never seem to be able to do anything just once, even stuff I'd rather not repeat.

I walked over hot coals three times (but that was by choice, and I'm looking forward to it again). I fell hiking in the Pyrennes three times, and fractured my wrist. And when I was rear-ended more than a year ago, the truck hit me twice.

I am frightened of public speaking. If it's in a play, that's all good. But the instant it gets into my own words in front of an audience, I freak.

I've always wanted to live in a hut in the mountains, with furs all over my bed. Basicly a shotgun shack and me, alone in the woods.

The summers between ages 16-20 I would have nosebleeds very frequently. They were quite annoying, but eventually stopped on their own accord. Later, when I was 26 I started getting seasonal allergies. Feh.

When I was young I was a My-Little-Pony girl. I still have some of them in a box in storage at my sister's place now, but when I was an early teen I sold a number of them at a garage sale along with the giant pink Pony Mansion complete with swimming pool and dishes. When I think back, it makes me very sad that I don't have them all anymore, I was very proud of my gigantic collection. They were a giant part of my life then, we even have a family photo (professional) with me proudly holding one of my favorites, all dressed up in her best saddle. I don't think I would sell them for any amount of money now.

Unlike so many people I know, I'm not scared of spiders.

The only major annoyances about being married: Joint checking, and I miss listening to a good thrid of my music because I know my husband won't like it or ask me to turn it off immediately following listening to it.
