How many cats does it take to become a cat lady? How many do you have now. What's the most you've ever had?
Can you give us a description of what exactly your reaction would be if someone ran over one of your cats intentionally?
I have 3 currently and my boyfriend has hinted he will move to his own place if I bring home any more. The kitties and I stayed with my mom for a few months after college and there was a total of 6 in the house. It was insane. When I'm a crotchety old lady in retirement, I'll probably have 20 and let them roam the neighborhood in jackets that I've made for them.
I will add that my dad bought me a Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure when I moved into my current house...
Reading about Cat Lady makes me want to sneeze.
This is the best video I could find, unfortunately some retard added music to it.
Tell us a little about your worldview, guiding philosophies, enlightenment moments etc. etc...
I don't remember ever reading a single post of yours. Who are you and why should we care about you?
Also, there's a full-on balls-out war between the Aryan Nation and the Nation of Islam. Who are you pulling for and why?
But, when you weigh out the odds of what could have happened had you not walked away, it doesn't hurt so bad. Many times I've often thought it was a blessing that since I didn't walk away, I was taken away. Weird, I know...I had an extremely close group of friends when I was in my very early '20s. There were like 7 of us that hung out almost every day, smoking pot, drinking beers, going to shows, just generally having a blast. At one point my buddy got turned onto crytal meth and introduced it to the whole group.
It was fun at first, but I never really got out of control with it. I was working full time and going to school, so it was strictly a weekend thing, and I never stayed up for longer than 24 hours. It was like that with everybody for the most part in the beginning, but soon enough shit got out of control.
it's really scary and sad to watch your close friends drastically change and turn into different people in front of your eyes. The only thing that really occurred to me was to simply walk away from it and completely cut them all off. It was too much fort me. i said some really nasty shit.
I wish there could have been a different way, but I feel like the people I miss don't really exist anymore, so it might not have mattered anyway.
You're not alone there/ So, now that it's the end of your week, I guess I'll never get the honest truth about whether it was a long knee length sock or one of those booty sized socks with the little balls on the heel, huh? LOLHonesty has long time been both a blessing and curse for me.
BTW... Tommy! I was wondering about you the other day. Hope all is well and that you're headed west next month!
Name, age, and picture por favor.
Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.
The Dive Poets
Guiding philosophies: I strongly believe that life should't be lived according to anyone else's plan and that it's a journey, as cliché as that sounds. The college at 18, white collar job, marriage, kids, country club membership, and retirement to Boca route works for some people; that path shouldn't be forced down anyone's throat. I have a lot of friends following this trajectory and while they have the material things that they think they are supposed to have, they are completely miserable I am trying to see as much, meet as many people, and do as many things as I can in this very short life that I have. I do what makes me happy and hope I end up with a lot of stories later in life. That said, I did go to college but it was on my terms and I chose a career that will make me happy as well as make me a little money.
Enlightenment moments: I think my most enlightening moment was when I realized that religion wasn't for me. I was in a church play when I was 13 and after a day of not eating and the hot stage lights, I passed out in the middle of the performance and fell from a 4 foot platform. Church leaders tried to pray the evil spirits away instead of get me to a doctor. Their blind faith put my health at risk; I had a concussion and was really dehydrated. That caused me to ask a lot of questions that couldn't be logically answered, and start thinking for myself. Paging Michael Stipe...
Coachella is by far the furthest, but I did fly from Raleigh to Austin for ACL last October. My company cut everyone's salary by 20% right before Coachella tickets went on sale, so I was unable to afford to go. Once I recovered financially I decided to get tickets to ACL to satisfy my craving for a festival because it's cheap and I could save money by staying with my granddad in Austin. By no means was it the best trip I've ever taken. I messed up my back a few days before so I was in pain the entire time, some jerk slammed into the back of my rental car, I got eaten alive by mosquitoes, the sound bleed from stage to stage was rotten, it rained a lot, and I twisted my knee in the ankle deep mud. Luckily I was with a really good friend that is fun to travel with so we decided to ditch most of the last day of the festival for some serious sightseeing. The trip confirmed for me that I should just stick to Coachella if I'm going to travel thousands of miles for music.

But yes, I do have a distinct memory of lizzing in the manner you are referring to. I blame the booze.
Hell, I guess I should do less lurking and more posting.
I'm Liz, or ELIZABETH NICOLE when my mother is mad at me, and I came into this world on a snowy night in Alaska on the night of John Lennon's death. That would make me 29. I was born to a couple of pot-heads that were stationed in Juneau for a few years while in the Coast Guard. After they became civilians again, we spent a majority of my childhood moving from state to state. In addition to Alaska, I've lived in Kentucky, Missouri, 4 cities in Virginia, Florida, and North Carolina. The closest thing I have to a hometown is Northern Virginia, where I spent about 12 years on and off.
I was a nerdy kid that had an affinity for hair bands, Legos, building things, and art. I was bored at school and fucked off a lot in my teenage years. I worked really hard after high school as a drafter and started my own company at 22, offering my super sweet AutoCAD skills to the masses. Well, to steel cable companies. I went back to college on my own dime at 23, getting a degree in interior design. While I'd like to still be my own boss and designing extravagant things for people with too much money, I work at an architectural firm that lacks any sort of aesthetic vision and will continue to do so until the economy rebounds, I pass my certification tests and have enough technical experience to go out on my own. I travel as much as possible when not tending to my herd of cats. I'm saving for a world ticket and have even thrown around the idea of joining the peace corps to experience life from another perspective. And to satisfy my nerdy side, I've been researching my geneology and recently discovered that my ancestors came over on the Mayflower and my greatx9 grandfather was executed in the Salem Witch Trials.
Oh, and I like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
