You still do Flash Mobs? If so, how's that working out?

You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.
It's that tad bit of Crazy that keeps me Sane...
In 10 years I'd like to be in a financially stronger position -If I could find a way to have my mortgage paid off by then I'd love it. I'd also like to see us invest in a recreation property or RV of some kind so it's easy for us to get away, with the dogs, to a spot near water. And I want to continue to go to as many music events as I can, no matter where they are! Since I'm not going to have any kids I intend to spend what would have been a college fund, on all the fun stuff that makes me happy. You only live once and you can't take it with you!
Why no children?
If we were to share a sandwich, what would the ingredients be?
How do you feel about meeting people from the internet? How old were you when you first met someone you knew online first?
What is your dream car?
What is your biggest vice?
Ski or snowboard?
Bike or roller blade?
It would have yummy, tangy buffalo chicken breast, nice and juicy and tender, with 2 types of melted cheese on top - mozzarella and cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and some ranch dressing, on a kaiser bun.
The first person I met from the Internet was someone I met via Classmates, in around 2007. I had a boyfriend that I met through a personals phone line before that, so meeting someone that was a stranger didn't really bother me. When I registered on Classmates and marked on it that I was single, and this guy from my high school reached out to me. He said Oh, you didn't really know me but we knew the same people, and I always had a crush on you, I would love to take you out. He sent me pictures and seemed cute, but I was surprised I couldn't remember him. When we met I was taken aback. He had a really visible nervous twitch and was very awkward, and we went to a wine tasting event, but he wouldn't even make conversation. I kept having to force the discussion and initiate everything. At one point he tried to put his arm around me while we were standing watching a demo and I moved. Then later in the evening he tried to hold my hand. I literally said, "OK. You are invading my personal space right now." He looked at me blankly and said, I'm sorry, I just really like you. But then I asked why he wouldn't talk to me and sort of called him on his weird behavior. He told me he hadn't dated much and was just really nervous. So we went for coffee and we sat while I gave him a bunch of dating pointers, and for a little while after that he used to IM me before dates for pep talks. Eventually he met a really nice girl, and we're still friends.
Biggest vice I have conquered - smoking. I quit smoking cigarettes 5 years ago and haven't had one since. I do enjoy the occasional Hooka session though.
Biggest vice I still carry - Wine. If I had to do without beer I'd be fine, but not without my red wine. After a long day there is nothing nicer than putting your feet up or having a warm bath, while sipping a vino.
Fascinating that someone has actually used ClassMates.com I always wondered. As a fellow who was definitely inept at the younger years of dating, I must say kudos to you for not letting it get overly awkward and actually letting it lead to a lesson to better the situation.
I like to bike a bit. I took a spill last summer and broke my bike so I haven't used it since. I have tried rollerskating but I am not great with it. I do like hiking a lot. We hiked up Ha Ling Peak last year and it only took us 1.15 hours to get to the top. We really hustled it and I was proud. I'm better with sports that don't call for any type of paraphenalia or equipment. Just me, moving. That's what I like.
So swimming or running?
Did you do a sport in high school?
What animal do you wish was permanently off the endangered species list?
Banff or Jasper?
I didn't do any sports growing up really, none in high school at ALL. I do remember I got on a summer soccer team in grade 5. Then I auditioned for a play and got a great part. So instantly soccer was dropped. In my house, acting was IT. You could be on a waiting list for a life saving procedure but if you got a great part when it came up, that might get put off. Sports were never a priority. I did do Irish Dancing for a while. Is that a sport?
Do you ever get bored working from home?

When I was 14 I got a role in a play written by a college student, which was performed at the theatre in the school. It was about a nuclear holocaust where a few young people survived and lived in a bunker underground. I played a 10 year old girl that was sort of adopted by this group of young men and women. The cast was all college age but they let me hang out with them and took me to a couple of their house parties. They had a band and would play in garages, basements. They'd let me have the occasional wine cooler. I was a bit of a mascot of sorts and I'm sure I was a pain in the ass but at the time I thought it was the greatest. I'm still in touch with some of them.
I think method acting is bullshit.
I love sleeping outside. When I stayed at my sister's house in the woods, it's right by the river and the sound of it moving at night while I was falling asleep was so soothing. It may sound cheeseball but I also think that giving or getting hugs is the best.
Well, Pilsner is pretty damn good.
What's your wine of choice?
The Canadian stuff in South Park is pretty funny.
Whats your favorite vocabulary word?
