nothing worse/nothing better
this may be a big stinking mess, but let's give it a shot. take the topic suggested by the previous poster and think of the best and worst aspect of said topic. for example, topic: email

nothing worse: when someone sends you something that's described as "the funniest thing you'll ever read" and then they stand by your desk while you read it, waiting for you to laugh. and it's just... not... funny.

nothing better: having someone you've lost touch with and really miss suddenly find your email address and send you a "how's life" message out of the blue.

make sense?

your topic: summer

Jaime 07-23-2006 12:18 AM

I like this thread!
Nothing worse: When it's so hot that you don't want to move, and you have to take a long, bus ride crammed with grumpy, sweaty people.

Nothing better: The feeling of wet grass under your feet as you run through a sprinkler.

your topic: Music

Coffee 07-23-2006 12:56 AM


Ooops. didnt see the topic directive. I am currently blank on a music topic...pass.

ambo 07-23-2006 01:35 AM

Nothing worse: Hearing a classic rock piece being watered down into "muzak" and piped into an elevator.

Nothing better:
This one is a tie:
1) When a piece of music is so connected with an event that you can smell and taste just what it felt like the first time you heard it.
2) When the lyrics to a song are so beautiful that you cry when you sing them.

your topic: The internet

Anna 07-23-2006 02:28 AM

Nothing worse:
WindowsXP (nuff said)

Nothing better:
zefrank ;)

your topic: Food

lapietra 07-23-2006 05:05 AM

Nothing worse:
Pretentious and overpriced restaurants that insult your intelligence & palate while emptying your wallet.

Nothing better:
Figuring out how to make your favorite dishes at home (and having them come out better than the restaurant version!)

your topic: Room/ or housemates

Frieda 07-23-2006 06:29 AM


nothing worse: when my idea of clean doesnt match the room/housemate's idea of clean

nothing better: having no roommate or housemate

new topic: sports

Coffee 07-23-2006 01:33 PM

Nothing worse: Rabid sports fans making asses of themselves just cuz "their team" (usually composed of 90% out of towners imported to their city to boost a crappy performing team) just happens to pull their heads out of their arses long enough to win a pennant.

Nothing better: A ball field full of happy kids playing a game of "any sport" with the support of their parents...support with out pressure to win but rather encouragement to have fun.

Your topic: Party

Brynn 07-23-2006 06:33 PM

Nothing worse: wandering around a generic hall full of trial lawyers who have never met each other, drinks in hand, eating bad appetizers out of complete and utter boredom while a very loud 70's cover band plays.

Nothing better: a spontaneous get-together around a patio table with candles, beer, wine, good tunes, playing "two truths and a lie" with fellow actors. This inevitably turns into an evening of non-stop laughing, storytelling and dancing, with drunk friends sleeping over on the couch or in hammock. The next morning, all who are still moving eat breakfast together and go for a hike in the Gorge.

a new crush

Anna 07-23-2006 07:54 PM

Nothing worse: voicing all the smart and brilliant things you have to say, but end up sounding like George Bush.

Nothing better: anticipation - distance - chance meetings.

Your topic: Books

auntie aubrey 07-24-2006 10:44 AM

nothing worse: absolutely loving a book from start to near-finish, only to find out in the denouement that the author has no skill for resolution.

nothing better: a long luxurious visit to the bookstore, browsing and reading and picking up anything at random that seems appealing, finally settling on a title, taking it home, and enjoying your selection so much that you finish it in a day.

your topic: grocery shopping

zero 07-24-2006 11:25 AM

nothing worse: than finding out that your grocer, mister simon castleton, is in fact a brainmatter-eating alien bat sex-zombie from the andromeda galaxy

nothing better: peas. and brussel sprutos. and maybe a packet of biscuits.

now someone tell us please all about what there's nothing better than and nothing worse than when it comes to socks

12"razormix 07-24-2006 11:36 AM

nothing worse: socks that slide under your heels no matter what you do.

nothing better: socks somewhere far away in a hamper.

your topic: world peace

ambo 07-24-2006 11:55 AM

nothing worse: realizing that since the human race is flawed in almost every possible way, is loaded with wanton greed, makes war and war heroes into something to be revered instead of disdained, and is full of politicians that don't care about anything other than power, world peace is probably something none of us will see in our lifetime
nothing better: closing your eyes and visualizing what it would be like if humans could only learn that violence for any reason, and in any uniform, is not a solution for anything, anytime, anywhere; imagining what global problems could be conquered if only we'd learn to work together

your topic: fire

Frieda 07-24-2006 12:42 PM

nothing worse: when it's YOUR house

nothing better: fire! FIRE! FIRE!! mehehehe!

your topic: laundry
