Yes, shoes, socks, or not tell a lot, and everything in between.

New QoD, unless Brynn's great conversation starter wants more.

What does a hairstyle say?

Coffee 04-23-2012 11:51 AM

-I am disheveled and require combing
-I am combed satisfactorily
-I need a trim
-more gel please!
-less off the bangs next time
-remind haircutter about the sides sticking up if cut too short...i can't do it for you.

brightpearl 04-23-2012 04:24 PM

high maintenance

high opinion of himself


MoJoRiSin 05-04-2012 08:26 PM

where do you live?

xfox 05-08-2012 09:41 AM

Mostly on land, sometimes on sea and occasionally in the air.

New ?qotd?

Of the classic books you've read, which was your favorite?

Bman 05-08-2012 08:12 PM

The classic "books that I have read":

-ALL the zoobooks
-The Long, Dark Teatime of the soul
-ALL the books that are like zoobooks, but with planes
-Cat's Cradle

brightpearl 05-08-2012 09:59 PM

Oohhhh, like Bman, I can't pick just one.

Also like Bman, a Vonnegut is on my list, but it's Slaughterhouse Five, and the Douglas Adams for me is Hitchhiker's - a cliche perhaps, but I just love it so much.
And Catch-22, The Master and Margarita, and A Movable Feast.

YsaPur EsChomuw 05-09-2012 11:53 AM

From this list of classic books I like the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde the most.

Hyakujo's Fox 05-10-2012 06:06 AM

It's hard to say, I'd have to read them all again.

From the list, maybe Bleak House. Certainly one of my favourite first pages of a book.

MoJoRiSin 05-11-2012 10:30 PM

I am loving the Iliad at the moment
(the rendition by Alexander Pope)
maybe I haven't really actually gotten

through a classic unless the Bible counts
somewhere near the first of the iliad it states
that first the dogs will become ill
and after that... the humans
i wonder if the smartest people*
knew better than to actually think
illness meant someone had cast
a spell
on you....

*way back when :)

YsaPur EsChomuw 07-05-2012 02:16 PM

┐ Why do you read books?

Frieda 07-06-2012 06:10 AM

Either escapism or study

xfox 07-06-2012 11:48 PM

I hope to find out things I don't know. My Mom was a librarian and died on June 6 at almost 91 and she said, "Only read the best books because there isn't time to read them all."

Hyakujo's Fox 07-07-2012 11:36 AM

Yeah I think I need to take some of that advice. Reading keeps me human in some way, or maybe that was the first form of being human I knew, so it feels natural to go back to it, even though, you know, you can't read Philip JosÚ Farmer by torchlight anymore.

MoJoRiSin 07-07-2012 12:14 PM

^^ xfox,
at approximately the same time you were posting
your response i was driving
in my car thinking :
what can i possibly say besides
i love to read
when this popped in
"find stuff out"

xfox 07-10-2012 12:24 AM


Brynn 07-31-2012 02:29 AM

Sorry to hear about your mom, xfox - my condolences. That's good advice from her, too.

I guess I read fiction because I can be completely alone in silence, except for the voice of the author and the voices of the characters inside my brain. It's probably the most intimate intellectual experience, anyway, that I can have as a human being.

trisherina 07-31-2012 02:58 AM

Because the human experience is infinitely variable, and I can always learn about another.

xfox: It is nice that your mother left you the gift that you can go to the library, and it's like looking at the same moon from the same location as hers. Yours is an enviable heritage all around.

xfox 08-01-2012 11:51 PM

:) Trisherina and Brynn Thank you for your condolences. You're both so dear. The SEA-TAC airport has a free book corner & I so regret I didn't have time to go there today. I sobbed at this display because Mom would have enjoyed it, alas. But while we are here we can fin d the best things. Even thought I'm traveling for work and dread leaving home when I do home is way far away. With any luck it will be there upon my return. In the meantime I heart you two. And a few other old timers, an, of course, Mo.

xfox 08-03-2012 07:57 AM

Am I forgiven for messing up this therad?

If you don't care to answer, here's another QoD:

What era or year old you choose to be born I you had the choice?

Brynn 08-03-2012 09:31 PM

You did not mess up the thread. You showed us some of the light inside you.

Today I would like to have been born in 1989, the same age as the waitress hitting on my husband right now. I'd give her a run for her money.

Brynn 08-21-2012 06:03 PM

^ Thread-killer.

Actually, living during the Stone Ages might not have been real fun, but it certainly would have been quite the experience around the campfire.
I wonder how much b.s. they had to deal with from each other.
"Gun-gun, you forgot to collect water two sunrises in a row."
"I no like. You go."
"Baby sick now. No meat for you."
"I want meat! Shut up!" (runs off)

Bman 08-26-2012 11:40 PM


Brynn 10-01-2012 05:30 PM

New QOD:

What are all the motivations a person could have for posting long passages from books in the image association thread so people can't connect the images together?

brightpearl 10-01-2012 11:42 PM

YsaPur EsChomuw 10-02-2012 12:33 PM

To be noticed (no matter what way or at what price) is a basic human desire

originating from an even deeper need: to be appreciated, respected, loved.

It is much easier to be seen than to be.

Brynn 10-02-2012 04:38 PM

MoJoRiSin 10-02-2012 05:06 PM

Not sure if this counts for anything
or not
but I did *check*
as to whether
Stella mcCartney
even had bathing suits
In her line
prior to posting her most beauteous and flawless

Hyakujo's Fox 10-02-2012 10:43 PM

some people just like to poop on the coffee table.

Coffee 10-03-2012 08:52 PM

Precisely why I moved onto a boat...no table.

But seriously, I think we aren't all wired upstairs quite the same...which doesn't bother me in the least so long as they are "nice".
Viva la difference.

Odbe 10-04-2012 12:10 PM

^ Yep. I don't think I'll ever understand everyone or even mostly anyone.

Brynn 10-09-2012 02:27 PM

I need to stop getting triggered. I'm tired of letting everything bug me. I wish I could get off the "irritable" train.

Frieda 08-07-2013 06:11 PM

The new question of the day is.........

what are you wearing?
