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 :)

I must admit, my day was also the kind where I just wanted to go home and get a hug!

Well, I gotta confess...

When I fish, I do the catch and release thing. Except for fried catfish, I don't really like to eat fish. So, not gonna catch & keep something I won't eat.

but I have to disagree with ozark.... and I just have to say she doesn't get it. Out on the water, fishing, nothing like it, whether its the river, a lake, a pond, deep sea, whatever.

haha, I like "out on the water" but not so much after that. Only one time I've been fishing that I liked, sunset, and every time I put the line in the water, I came out with a fish. Every other time, I read a book.

Hey I am a man after all. I do try to be a lot more reserved and traditional than most, but I am still a man. NOT a metrosexual, or any other such caca!
Heck, it was even suggested that "maybe I am in the closet" today. That one made me feel real good!! The fur flew over that one!!

(Besides, I thought to liberals, that was a good thing, anyway!!)

I can't remember, but it sounds familiar...

There was one with the local priest trying to save everyone and parents worrying about molestation and the priest taking the molestation issue to the top and everyone thinking it is normal and it was just so wrong...

The Finnish girl came down the hill in the Giant Slolum and knocked 0.4 off of the best score.

Then the American girl came down the hill and knocked 0.7 off of the Finnish girl's score.

The American girl, Julia Mancuso, WON THE GOLD MEDAL!!!

She really kicked butt and I am so proud of her!

Good grief! I am stuck in a time warp! I still like rock music. I still am having to battle my love for food, especially cookies and chocolate. I still love to flirt. I still think I am 25!!!!!!!!! I used to be a cat person though, and now I am more of a dog person. I still love cats and have one, but Harm rules my life now.

Osama and his camel were in the desert. Osama had a table set for dinner with flowers on it. The camel had a veil on and was batting eyes with long lashes at Osama.

It was hilarious!

I have a burmese! She's great! Quite the princess.

I miss Muffin, she was my aunt's cat until my aunt got cancer and asked us a few day before she died to "Take care of Muffin." Muffin was born in Round Rock, Texas and she was a Texas cat all the way. She developed kidney problems at 14 and we kept her going for 2 and a half years. I would consider that a victory, but had she lived a month, she would have made it to 17. I'm glad for one thing, she passed away on July 9th, a day after my birthday. She held on, I think she knew how bummed I would be had she passed away on my birthday.

The calico, Pansy, she does have a hyperactive thyroid (common in older cats, well, she is 18 B-)) and left untreated, she could develop high blood pressure, blindless, weight loss, heart problems and molting of her fur but since we have her on meds, she is doing fine and gained a little weight back and acting like a kitten like she always has.

Me, too. I am really into James Patterson murder mysteries now and Jan Karon's Mitford Series. I used to be into Pride and Prejudice as a teen and still like Jane Austin's books.

"sunset"

nothing like a sunset, no matter where you are. And, reading a book, out on the water is good too.

Sounds like you were on a "hole", catching fish everytime you put the line in. Lucky girl

So, not gonna catch & keep something I won't eat.

That's a good thing. I'm all for hunting and fishing but if you don't plan on eating, better to release.

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

Sometimes, it's hard for me to see myself having a passion for anything anymore. Real life seems to have stolen much of my passion. When I can escape from real life, I still like photography which I started in 1984. I still like hiking, and I've done hiking to some extent or another for most of my life. I don't work out as much as I should, but I still have and use a cheapie weight bench that my father bought for me 30 years ago when I was a kid. When I was a little kid, I liked to watch birds in the back yard. When we had a snow, we'd put seed on the back porch, and I'd sit by the window watching them come to eat. I didn't pay that much attention to birds for years, but I started birdwatching about five years ago. Some of that passion has waned in the past year, but I still like seeing them and watching them.

An interesting twist on this question is how long I've waited to start some hobbies. I've been interested in ocean/recreational kayaking since about 1987 when a roommate suggested that I might like this sport. I had some unsuccessful attempts to try kayaking throughout the 90's, but my situation in life always made purchase of a kayak a bad choice. I kept looking for a chance, and in 2000, I was finally in a situation where I could buy a kayak. I don't go as much as I'd like, but I went kayaking half a dozen or so times last year.

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

There's nothing that really fits that definition precisely. When I was younger, I was very involved in cave exploration. Today, I've developed claustrophobia and sometimes cringe just thinking about places that I used to go. However, I still see why caving appealed to me, and I could still visit many caves that don't have tight places. This sport was good for me, and I don't regret that pursuit.

In the early 90's, I was an avid cyclist. I regret that I no longer live where I can easily ride from home, but I just don't feel safe on area roads. I miss cycling very much.

Through most of the 80's and early 90's, I was a dedicated and practicing Christian. If you'd told me then that I'd someday go ten years without going to church, I'd have told you that you were crazy. I think it's now been almost eleven years since I attended church. I see how church is good for many people. There were things about my involvement in church that were good for me. On the other hand, there were many things about that involvement that were very bad for me. I wouldn't say that I can't believe that I used to like that life, but I don't long to go back.

What was your favorite band/song in highschool, then early adulthood compared to now?

This question is somewhat related to the last one. In my teen and early adult years, I was a fan of Christian music because I was very dedicated to practicing Christianity. Now, I don't really have "favorite" music with which I identify.

Is there anything in your interests, hobbies or life that would surprise people who know you?

People who know me are no longer surprised by anything. However, I'm certainly unconventional in many respects. I'm an engineer who writes a great deal and generally writes well. I've dabbled in some fiction, and my acquaintances would be shocked to think of me writing these stories. My pets are a ball python and a California kingsnake.

Well, that's enough. These are good questions. Thanks for asking.

Bill

Yep, frankly that was the only time I really enjoyed fishing. It can be terribly boring at times. So can hunting, been twice deer hunting, nothing yet. Obviously you enjoy fishing (I envy you being on the water), have you experienced hunting deer yet, I hope you've had better luck than I have!! I think the deer laugh when they see me coming.

I'm not THAT old either. However, I am not driven anymore, if you know what I mean. I want a more relaxed life style. Since I am a widow, I do as I please. I want to travel some, enjoy my family, meet new people; but I still want to be at home for a great deal of the time. I am a homebody at heart I guess. I just like the simple life most of the time.
