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 :)

Are you on dialup,
or are you saying the pictures are hard to look at?

Heres the questions without pictures. :)

What hobby/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---

No, I'm not on dial-up. What I meant was that the pictures are so weird they distract from the questions.

Well, here are mine...

a. I've loved horses my whole life.

b. The strangest thing I ever took up was appliquing sweatshirts, they were SO tacky....I just didn't have the knack I guess.

c. Highschool was band...OK>>>>David Cassidy, Partridge Family.
College was Billy Joel and Disco (OK, shoot me!)
Now it's World Music and Country and Western.
The only consistant is I've always loved classical.

d. I own everything Nine Inch Nails has ever recorded.
I write really bad science fiction for a hobby.
I can't play the piano no matter how many lessons I have.

A flaming, bleeding-heart liberal on another board was surprised to learn that I'm a Tom Chapin fan.

I guess people don't assume that conservatives are folk aficionados.

Edit to previously posted comment:

Correction, a HARRY Chapin fan, not a fan of his younger, significantly less-talented brother.

D'oh!

How could I make that mistake?!

My older brother is a huge fan of NIN.

He even has a t-shirt proclaiming his admiration for that band, believe it or not.

Might have gotten rid of it though; not sure.

I'll have to ask him the next time I go over to his apt.

I should probably also give him back the DVD copies of ATHF that he loaned to me about a year ago.

=)

My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. If I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds. Pretty standard stuff, really.

That's what I thought, anyway, but the official website of the US Embassy there still says "Rangoon, Burma."

Since you asked:

Favorite hobby way back when: Shooting guns.

Favorite hobby now: Shooting guns.

I can't believe I used to like that: Nothing. I like the everything about the old days better than I like everything now, except I like music CD's better than the old vinyl records.

Favorite band in the old days: The Beatles (from when She Loves You and I Want To Hold Your Hand first came out).

Favorite band now: Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (the more thing change the more they stay the same, a mid to late 60's band).

No surprises other than I seem quiet and shy at first, but only at first. Then I seem loud and annoying.

Hi, najida & All: Nice pics! This took some thought, but here goes:

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

Books. When I was 10, I started collecting them from library booksales, used bookstores and the like--I even cataloged them on little index cards like the library (this was before computers, I have to admit). I still love books, though I'm not quite as obsessive about them now.

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

The Bump. Ugh!

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

High School/Early Adulthood = Foreigner Now = Vivaldi

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

I have this "thing" for Weird Al Yankovic.

Yikes! Now everyone knows!!

Amen to that. Although it's only been my favorite for a few years. In HS, I didn't know squat about guns.

"You don't have to be single to hang out on this thread."

That's good. I'm single but there was a time that I was actually Two. Then I became Three and so on and so on.

But like that old song goes,

"I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now."
