The ***OFFICIAL*** Friday/Saturday Night Singles' Thread February 24th and 25th, 2006
Me ^ | February 24, 2006 | Me

Posted on 02/24/2006 5:11:41 PM PST by najida

Guess who's hosting this edition of the singles thread!?! Scary, ain't it folks.

Anyhow, in the process of cleaning out boxes, it came to me....the questions that we all ask ourselves as we uncover chunks of our long lost past.....

What WAS I thinking!?!

So, my questions to all of you are:

What hobby or interest did you have when you were younger that you still have a passion for?

Ok, now....is there something you used to do that you now think "I can't believe I used to like that!"

Same with music---
What was your favorite band/song in highschool, then early adulthood compared to now? (Those still in early adulthood have only 2 questions to answer. Or maybe just one ;))

Is there anything in your interests, hobbies or life that would surprise people who know you? (Nothing weird, just.....) And if it invovles being on wanted posters, you can skip the question :)

They were my own feelings on it. I didn't realize I was also speaking for so many others.

I know it's early, but I'd better hit the sack. Big day tomorrow--early estate sale; then Sean Hannity is coming to town and I have second-row seats. Enjoy the rest of the evening!

I am quite comfortable going in the woods (bring toilet paper and dispose of discreetly, a shovel is handy if necessary). The commonly used ones stink incredibly! No one should be forced to use those.

I have a friend who after graduating from Law School spent a year body surfing around the world before he got to work. His fiance joined him for a few months of it and she tells the story of the holes in the ground that are hillarious now. There was one point where they had not eaten in several days and finally found a hole in the wall place one night that served soup. He realized it was cockroach soup, but would not tell her, becuase they needed nourishment and she was already getting really sick. Then she had to use the bathroom and they sent her to the stumps outside, and told her to be sure to stand on them and watch out for the rocket pigs. It was dark, but as soon as it hit the floor, the pigs came from nowhere and ate the droppings. She STILL married him after months of these types of experiences.

Sure, I'd share ANYTHING with you. I'd even get you the alcoholic drink of you choice, special for you!

The pizza is great, from an Italian shop that has been in business for many years. Best pizza I ever ate. Ancient recipe. Homemade dough and special sauce. Yum!

I want to see if they could produce a version even more authentic, where they transport people back to the Neolithic Age, where they'd be forced to survive for a month or so.

Only, all of the participants would have to be selected from groups like GreenPeace and Friends of the Earth.

I think you know, if they were selected from Greenpiece, etc. they would not be here to tell us about it. Greenpiece folks are not survivors. They would die out in the first generation.

It would of course be terrible, they probably were the kindest and most humane and would be sorely missed.

Margaritas used to be one of my favorite drinks. Then, a few times, I had way too many and I found out the old saying was true..."Margaritas are not Senoritas".

What's a cosmos? Anything like a Kamikazi?

I am not really in the partying mood tonight.

First, I am tired. will probably go to bed soon.

Secondly, I guess the"honeymoon period" of this job is over. Today the boss REALLY rubbed me the wrong way, several times.

It started when my sinuses started acting up a bit, and I coughed a couple of times, when he was speaking spanish gibberish over the phone, to a customer.

His carping about me not being able to control my coughing and such, put my nerves on edge, and so they soon flared up too, and I coughed even more, as we loaded a big screen tv set.

This opened up the whole "Pandora's box" about the subject. I was totally open when I started there, about my nerve problem, and the coughing it sometimes produces. but somehow, it went over his head. what followed was a dialogue between him and me about the matter, with me reminding him that this is why I can't do a "road tech job" and such, to him saying he didn't see why I can't just suppress it and so on. But this time the nerves had subsided and the anger and hurt in me was taking over.

A bit later, I want to a customers house with him. My sinuses and nerves were fine. We were checking out a tv set, where the Picture tube was weak, and I had "boosted it" about a month ago. Now, it is totally bad. I let him know this, after checking out the set. The customer heard me. BUT, It seems that he had told the customer that we put a NEW tube in last month, and it had failed, ans now, since his service contract was expired, he was SOOL. But then, he decided to "make it right"out of fear of a complaint to CC about the matter, which would expose the lie) and we took the set in to REALLY replace the tube. Well, he got mad at ME for saying that the tube was bad.. How was I supposed to know he had lied to the customer before, I was just being honest. By now, I felt, and SAID, "I should had stayed home today". He then tried to smooth things over but a bit later, got into a rant about how I should "try to be more hip, , go with the flow more, and change with the times". I repeatedly told him not to worry about what I do away from work, as long as I do my job, but he continued, with the "I'm just trying to help you" shit. THIS, COMING FROM A KERRY SUPPORTER, WHO IS GOING TO SEE SPRINGER TAKE ON HANNITY TOMORROW NIGHT!!

Then I get home........ and I see that one of the sharks here, has followed me over to CM, where my screenname is NOT the same, and "kept tabs" on what I was dong there, and then, came back here, and criticized me for bad grammar, OVER SOMETHING I SPOKE ABOUT ON CM!!!!!!

SO, needeless to say, I am not a happy camper right now.....In fact, I would like to kick someone in the nuts!!!

It's now known as Yangon, and it is in Burma.

Man, those cities and countries in Asia change their names more often than I change my underwear. B-) Well, I did have a Burmese cat, very beautiful cats:

Muffin: b. 8-21-1987 - d. 7-09-2004

I still have a cat from 1987, she will be 19 in August:

Pansy: b. 8-19-1987

Unfortunatly, she has the same birthdate (8-19) as Bill Clinton and Tipper Gore but that's also the birthdate of my grandfather on Dad's side so I think things cancel out. B-)

I got drunk on Manhattan's one time. I was in the Air Force and some sweet young lady broke my heart. I was working 4-12 and had a few in the afternoon before I went to work.

Well, I started feeling pretty high by the time I got to work. Turns out it was a Friday and they had some wine and beer at the shop. They were having a party for some reason, but I forget what the reason was. I had a glass of wine and got to work in the computer room.

I got very drunk in about half an hour. Those Manhattan's really hit me hard. I threw up all over the place. I passed out.

My buddy cleaned up for me and ran my shift for me. He worked daylight and was still there.

No one said a word to me about it. They had alcohol at the shop themselves, the Colonel too, and that was against the rules.

Dodged a bullet. Dodged many bullets in the Air Force.

I could use a nice warm hug, from a nice, soft, caring lady, right now.

But alas, I will have to "suffer in silence" as usual. I am probably condemned to do so, for the rest of my life.............
