i like ann tyler and bruce springsteen.
and i want to move to baltimore.


auntie aubrey 12-06-2007 12:47 AM

somehow i get the feeling that you people already know the things that surprise my real-life associates. because in the online context, they tend to come out more easily. they seem a part of my normal persona, rather than incongruous with the rest of my personality, as experienced in an in-person encounter.

most people i know are surprised that i do open torch glass work. the biggest surprised reaction always appears when people find out that all of my childhood crushes were black actors, and that i still have a soft spot for lavar burton. that one seems to get a good stunned-silence for reasons i can't explain.

Here's my twist~ I too love to cook, and I also bake at times. Yet it is not for my pleasure that I cook & bake, for often I don't like what I make. Most is given away to family and neighbors.
I suspect I have IBS, which makes it difficult for me to eat alot of foods, like corn, beans, cabbage, etc. (still finding them), yet I make the best fat-free chili, stuffed cabbage, etc.
And never have I cared much for cookies, cakes, or candies, still, I make each often.
The truth is , I just love it when others appreciate the foods I prepare, even if I can't eat them or don't like them. Spooky fact is, it's an ego thing, and I should know better, but I do keep it as my secret (well, kinda;) ).

Hmm...like Stephi, a lot of my persona isn't centered around anything in specific, but if I were to pick one thing in particular, it would be dancing.

I almost never do it, 'cause I'm so self-conscious, but between my yoga instructor's weekly cries of "you must take up ballet, dahling!" and the few ballroom dancing lessons I took in prep. for last year's V-day dance, I'd love to get into dance if I had the time and a secure island off the coast of Australia where I know no one would watch me. At least not until I stopped tripping over my own feet. :o

Marcus Bales 12-06-2007 02:40 AM

real tree or artificial this year?

artificial here

trisherina 12-06-2007 02:54 AM

Real. And I'm going to pinch its nipples.

Stephi_B 12-06-2007 07:17 AM

Real, cos although I am the person in charge of all tree-decoration-related affairs as usual I fear I won't convince my granny (i.e. the commander-in-chief of the household ;)) to make a LED tree this year...

auntie aubrey 12-06-2007 10:37 AM

real because the environmental stance seems to be that the manufacturing of artificial trees is far more harmful to the environment than the logging of responsibly farmed pines.

the "which is greener" issue has been a topic of debate in our household.

oh, and also real trees smell real purdy.

brightpearl 12-06-2007 12:43 PM

I have a Norfolk pine in a big pot that I always bring in and decorate.

Coffee 12-06-2007 02:30 PM

There is no room in a 33 foot sailboat for a tree, real or artificial...although I'm (only slightly) thinking of pulling 6 strands of lights up the mast with the jib and main halyards and turning the whole boat into a 47 foot tree...so...i guess that would be artificial.

I would love a real tree but I think my cat, who loves to climb trees outside, would love it even more. With the exception of smacking a few ornaments around, he pretty much left my fake one alone last year... perhaps because it smelled pretty much like all the other furniture.

lukkucairi 12-06-2007 03:25 PM

quite possibly a houseplant with decorations on it.


funkytuba 12-06-2007 03:26 PM

Real. We went and cut it down.

I've never seen this happen before.

I lobbied hard to name my son Atticus, but I lost. :) I'm glad there's a critter somewhere with his erstwhile name on it.

bet he's glad you lost


auntie aubrey 12-07-2007 08:19 PM

i can't mention their names without mentioning their alternate names. because it's rare that their real names are spoken.

lilly (alt: kitty-bo, fatjack, fattypotomus, mrs fuzzums)
roger (alt: kitty-boo-boo, littlejack, swiper, ricky fitz, tony mingus)
theo (alt: puppy, buddy)

why do pets get more names than humans?
