@KathleenD@twitter yes, this. i love how they write but it's kind of like playing a game of hot potato: when are they going to explode ink all over my stuff??
i could read about this all. day. tell me everything! teach me how to live!
Ugh, Time Warner is the only cable option for my house and I've only ever heard terrible things about them which is why I stick with my inferior Verizon DSL. I mean, not terrible, but there is a sometimes noticeable speed dip if multiple people are using the connection and someone is downloading.
I blogged about a vaguely similar experience, but you sound like such a nice person with actual compunctions about this while I just made myself sound like an asshole.
1-ply toilet paper and store-brand tissues! i will say, though, that the kirkland brand tissues from costco are actually very good (i would say, comparable to kleenex) but puffs are BY FAR the best.
“one some more”! i had to reread that many times.
the comments on TNR site are downers.
i hope the next wave of reality shows deliberately casts someone who does actually want to make friends and constantly tries to bond with everyone.
I just buy those AMC Silver/Gold passes that cost $6-8 and hoarde them. For the type of moviegoer that I am, it works out way better than this would. I don't have to feel guilty about not making use of my monthly fee and I can offer to take a friend out sometimes.
I had a similar experience with fiction when I was a kid! Our assignments were to write horror stories for Halloween, and when I sat down to write it I remember thinking that I finally understood how to use language. I read it in class, and the next day my teacher called me in to read it to one of her other classes. I no longer want to write professionally, but it was very formative for my high school and early college experiences.
