^not for me, plastic money makes me lose overview of how much money I spend, just use my EC card when I have no cash handy or for bigger sums which I don't wanna carry around on the streets, don't have a credit card (I couldn't travel to the US or?)

At the moment only something like 12 € - spent much this weekend...

Marcus Bales 12-17-2007 10:28 AM

In relationships, are you Canine or Feline?

That is are you pursuer or pursued?

Stephi_B 12-17-2007 10:42 AM


daverbee 12-17-2007 10:47 AM

Canine sometimes, feline others.

Angry Kid Hoyt 12-17-2007 12:15 PM

Always been the pursued.
Must be my charming wit and charismatic way.

lukkucairi 12-17-2007 12:39 PM

avian (flighty) :p

12"razormix 12-17-2007 03:49 PM

human ( not susceptible to chasing )

Thanks for that.
I'm still sweeping out the cynicism, but I'm actually doing much better.

Earthling 12-17-2007 04:18 PM

I take offense to the whole stereotypical Canine/Feline bigotted remarks.
Me, I just like to horse around.;)

Bman 12-17-2007 08:18 PM

ferret (squirmy)

auntie aubrey 12-17-2007 11:42 PM

i don't understand the question. canine is the pursuer and feline is the pursued? but cats are great hunters.

i neither hunt nor desire to be hunted. the way i've always seen it, if someone has to be pursued, they're not worth the chase.

i'd rather be a duck, waddling next to another duck, both of us muttering insane sub-vocal nonsense quacks.

trisherina 12-18-2007 02:09 AM

I guess maybe I did it wrong, the whole falling in love thing, but it's all clicks and buzzes to me, baby.

^sounds like an early adopter of robo-lovin.

madasacutsnake 12-18-2007 07:09 AM

Pursue me hard, baby.

Marcus Bales 12-18-2007 10:01 AM

Who was your first non-parent non-teacher role model, and why?

trisherina 12-18-2007 10:47 AM

A 14 year old girl in the hospital bed next to mine in paeds who needed skin grafting to her leg because she had been sniffing gasoline from a motorcycle tank, spilled some on her leg, and then lit a cigarette while stoned. Why? Because she seemed pretty happy and had a lot of friends.

lukkucairi 12-18-2007 11:11 AM

Anne Tetley-Jones.

taught me how to garden. chain smoked. didn't give a shit about the world, really, and was very happy that way.

brightpearl 12-18-2007 11:34 AM

my best friend of many years
so tough
so kind
and so alive

and she loves sock monkeys, so what's not to like?

Frieda 12-18-2007 11:37 AM

when i was 8: my teacher Gerdien-- always nice, very kind and fair. she made sure everybody felt comfortable. she really cared about us kids.

Stephi_B 12-18-2007 05:40 PM

Apart from my grandma, who pretty much falls in the parental category (and about whom you have heard already some things ;)) I'd say my former colleague and close friend Vanya (whom I met when I was 21) because he knows much about life, is tough, cool, clever, honest and an extremely good fella towards those that came through his protective shell!

12"razormix 12-18-2007 05:44 PM


what he said made sense to me.

zero 12-18-2007 09:04 PM

... been thinking about this on & off throughout the day. maybe there's something wrong with me but honestly, acannie for the life of me think of anyone i personally have regarded in the terms described below:

in fact having read that^, the very phrase "role model" now makes me feel quite queezy

Hyakujo's Fox 12-18-2007 10:14 PM

yeah, apparently you've got to aspire to a social role.

auntie aubrey 12-18-2007 10:16 PM

i was in college before anyone non-parental or non-teacheriffical qualified as a role model.

i wrote up a description of the guy three times before i finally decided there was no way to do it in any kind of short quip kind of way appropriate for this thread.

so. yeah. some guy i knew when i was in college.

Tunesmith 12-18-2007 11:33 PM

My cousin Nat. He's a junior in college, and some of my best memories are of exploring my grandparents' attic with him and finding old WWII helmets, a flashbulb camera, and a box full of love letters from two unknown relatives.

He's without a doubt one of the most intelligent and funny people I know, and has never had anything but the best advice.

That explains so much.

madasacutsnake 12-19-2007 06:51 AM

I never liked any-one enough to want to role model from them.

Frieda 12-19-2007 09:56 AM

question of wednesday 19 december:

what's the last thing you bought at IKEA?

Stephi_B 12-19-2007 10:04 AM

Bedclothes - somewhen in the long ago, don't buy much at IKEA.

T.I.P. 12-19-2007 10:29 AM

drapes - to block out the vis--vis from my neighbors' apartment

trisherina 12-19-2007 10:42 AM

a power outlet brick

brightpearl 12-19-2007 11:43 AM

knight and dragon printed storage boxes and a bed tent for my son's room

Frieda 12-19-2007 12:19 PM

2 ornaments for my christmas tree (glass white birds with red printed pattern), 2 rolls of gift wrap and a box of gift labels shaped as a gnome

Marcus Bales 12-19-2007 12:37 PM

Neither do I -- and for, I think, the same reason: we know that 90% of the universe is made up of dark matter, and almost all of it is kept in warehouses at Ikea!

Frieda 12-19-2007 12:42 PM

i like to think of it as parallel universes-- every IKEA warehouse in the world has the same 50 rooms set up. i mean, what would happen if i sit down on an EKTORP in amsterdam and you do the exact same at the exact same time--it might open a wormhole or something :eek:

madasacutsnake 12-19-2007 05:15 PM

I don't do Ikea. No way.

lukkucairi 12-19-2007 05:41 PM

$144 worth of battery powered LED xmas light strings that were selling at $1.60 ea.

That's 85 sets :)

auntie aubrey 12-19-2007 10:15 PM

ikea is still a novelty to me so i shop there as often as i can stomach the idea of grappling with the crowds. it's such a bizarro shopping experience that i can't get enough of.

last weekend we bought a down pillow and a roll of gift wrap for this enormous present we bought for a 4 year old that demanded its own roll of wrap just to cover the damn thing.
