pshaw, i could do a week all by my lonesome standing on my head.

by contrast, the last time i visited NYC i was ready to go home by day 3. i couldn't take the proximity of so many people and all i wanted to do was hide in my hotel room and watch movies for the rest of my stay. still, since i was there for a convention, i did my share of schmoozing and attending parties so my associates would probably never peg me as an introvert.

zero 04-04-2008 12:33 PM

the ¿ question of the day ? is

what was it like?

Stephi_B 04-04-2008 12:56 PM

interesting in a somewhat weird way

YsaPur EsChomuw 04-04-2008 01:01 PM

Oh... you know... phanerogamous.

auntie aubrey 04-04-2008 01:16 PM

harder than i anticipated.

Marcus Bales 04-04-2008 02:27 PM

A good hard is unanticipated.

It was like getting on roller coaster ride when you aren't sure the tracks will meet at the other end.

It was like jumping into a river that you think will be painfully cold, but it turns out to be just cool enough to be refreshing, and the river grass is soft and flexible instead of bristly, and all the fish belong there, and there's no trash floating by, and there are no leeches whatsoever. Not even a little one.

In short, more fun than killing baby ducks with a ball peen hammer.

^you'll find a mini-sledge is more effective and you'll get a better workout too :)

for me, it was like waking up properly after having suffered through an hour's worth of sleep paralysis

humbling. I still can't believe she did that.

trisherina 04-05-2008 12:22 PM

Like being so tired and dead and bored inside that you wish anything would come along, anything, even something bad, and then something does come even while you're just toying with the notion, and grabs you up brusquely and shakes you by the collar and wrings and twists you around, and prepares to spit you out and throw you back down again, and you wish harder than anything ever that you'd never had that first fateful involuntary wish, but you did.

Earthling 04-05-2008 02:52 PM

Farts ! She took mine:(

Stephi_B 04-07-2008 07:23 AM

Q for Monday:
¿What's your goal in life?
Have you found it yet, how close to it are you?
Do you want to find one at all, or is living your life enough?

Me: still searching.... but I think there is something.

YsaPur EsChomuw 04-07-2008 07:36 AM

My life's devoid of direction or purpose.

lukkucairi 04-07-2008 10:03 AM

^ the uncarved block :)

I'd like to live in the moment.

Frieda 04-07-2008 11:42 AM

^ i dont know how to live in anything other than the moment!

my goal in life is to relax-- i'm on the far side of the ellipse right now :eek:

auntie aubrey 04-07-2008 02:42 PM

my goal is to lead a good life, "good" being how i personally define it with full rights to change the definition as i see fit.

if you'd asked this question a year ago i would have answered differently. this is my post-satori answer.

zero 04-07-2008 04:42 PM


brightpearl 04-07-2008 06:56 PM

nothing i don't have that it's possible to aim for

there's something wrong with this sentence, but i'm not sure what it is.

my answer:
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

brightpearl 04-07-2008 07:31 PM

^there's something wrong with every sentence ever penned,

but I think I can clear it up for you in this instance if I say I meant,
"(There is) nothing I don't (already) have that it's possible to aim for."
There are some things I don't have in some sense, but I can't see any way of obtaining them by aiming to get them.

Brynn 04-07-2008 10:08 PM

to always keep learning
to make the world more beautiful than I found it
to live someplace warm, by the sea

trisherina 04-08-2008 01:05 AM

world domination


Jack Flanders 04-08-2008 01:19 AM

I read four questions but

i don't know

trisherina 04-08-2008 01:26 AM

Five, if you get real persnickety:

- world domination
- not there, but I maintain a positive attitude
- not all that close, but any amount of progress is satisfying
- I am not able to examine that function of my anatomy
- sure as hell beats the alternative

Jack Flanders 04-08-2008 01:32 AM

:p ok five wench!

#1 - world domination -heh!

auntie aubrey 04-08-2008 11:13 AM

¿ question of the day ?

Which of the following do you most closely identify with, and why?

a) bigfoot
2) the loch ness monster
III) el chupacabra
$) the yeti

Stephi_B 04-08-2008 11:53 AM

Mmmh...? Loch Ness has got a long neck, me too (for a human). But, nah, not really!
El Chupacabra I do not know long enough as to identify with (just googled),
sounds interesting though: vampire-like --> vampires are beings of the night --> I love the night.

But I'll identify myself with:


cos of the neither nor quality

YsaPur EsChomuw 04-08-2008 01:18 PM

None of those. I identify myself with one of the half-human, half-animal creatures from Greek mythology. But I will not say which one. :p

Frieda 04-08-2008 01:45 PM

^you're not referring to medusa's in-the-armpit snakes, are you? :p

zero 04-08-2008 02:23 PM

after a day like i've had today there's no way i can be arsed to ponder enigmas

brightpearl 04-08-2008 04:10 PM

El Chupacabra, of course. Sometimes he really sucks. :o

YsaPur EsChomuw 04-08-2008 05:03 PM

In fact, it doesn't very much matter which. I've always thought about the Minotaur, lonely and leathal, living hidden in a dark labyrinth, imprisoned. But it can be any half-human creature, not belonging, not understanding, not understood.

auntie aubrey 04-08-2008 05:38 PM

tomorrow's question of the day will be: if you were to identify yourself with one of the half-human, half-animal creatures from greek mythology, would you want to be human top-half or human bottom-half?

lukkucairi 04-08-2008 08:13 PM


T.I.P. 04-08-2008 11:40 PM

i'd have to say the yeti - hanging out in himalayan caves all day without having to deal with the real world sounds like a plan

PS: umm...aren't bigfoot and the yeti the same thing ?

brightpearl 04-09-2008 05:57 AM

^Of course not, silly! The abominable snowman is white and eats lemon snow cones, and Bigfoot is brown and eats little boys who ask too many questions.
