this thread is hilarious, and Q&A is highly entertaining.
My two best girlfriends of today I have known since kindergarten and 1st grade. So that's 35 years worth. All 3 of us talk or email each other every day.
I have two iPhones currently - one I have for personal and one for work. Sadly they are both 3G but I intend to get the 5 when it comes out.
When I was a kid, about 6, I saw a commercial for the movie "It's Alive". It was about a baby that was born a killer. The ad showed a bassinet on a turnstyle, turning with that tinkly lullabye music playing, and then suddenly scary music came on and claws came up over the side of the bassinet. I ran upstairs, hid under the bed and practically peed I was so afraid. Then years later I was at the video store in the horror section, turned over a VHS case, and saw the cover and the picture for this movie. I put it down and had to go out of the store, shaking like a leaf! Apparently it's this really stupid B movie with awful effects and totally laughable. But at the time I don't remember anything that scared me more.
Which artist/band would you eliminate from existence given the opportunity?
What is your favorite Alanis Morissette album?
Which artist would you pay any amount of money to see live in concert?
Do you prefer long & skinny or average & thick?
I don't really have a favorite album of hers. I liked Jagged Little Pill when it came out. But I remember dancing to her songs in Junior High when she was just "Alanis" too.
I have already paid a lot of money to see Duran Duran on more than one occasion.
I like average and average. Too much of anything isn't good in that department.
ThatGirl, at what point do you think girls stop being "girls" and start being "women"? Do you still call yourself a "girl," as in, "bye honey I'm going out on the town with the girls tonight"? Do you ever feel offended if someone else calls you a girl, as in when the letcherous old bartender asks, "So what are you girls up to tonight?" Do you think there is a difference in appropriateness of calling an adult a "girl" in a social context as opposed to a workplace context, or is the setting irrelevant?
I am way too open and extroverted for secrets. Of course there's things my parents don't know about my day to day life but I can't think of one big secret that no one knows. I'm too open a book. Probably that my belief in Christianity had changed a long time before I stopped attending church. It would hurt my parents a lot if they knew some of my true feelings about it.
The song I would save would be the The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel. There is something magic and beautiful about it, the harmonies and the lyrics and the mystery of it is wonderful.
My perfect day would start with waking up, completely rested and feeling great, on a Saturday around 7 am in London England. My honey and I would have a lovely morning sex session followed by breakfast in bed, of coffee or tea, orange juice, fresh scones and homemade jam, cream and a bit of crisp bacon. And waffles with blueberries. We'd eat just enough to be full. I'd shower and get my hair and makeup done, slip into an adorable size 2 -4 casual dress (my ideal size) and the most comfy, sexy lace up black leather Fluevog boots. Then my 2 best girlfriends (for Courtney - woman friends) would arrive at the door to get me for a morning shopping session on Oxford Street. My honey would stay back at the hotel and sleep in.
Once arriving on Oxford Street, we stop at Selfridges and there is a huge sale at Zadig and Voltaire. I get a three gorgeous imprint tees that fit perfectly, a dress, and a cool vintage style leather jacket. From there we go to TopShop and I find several pretty lace and satin tops that are great with jeans for a night out. Next stop is Karen Millen for jersey dresses. I find two more in a size 4 that look fantastic. By this time it's lunch and we head over to Picadilly Circus for lunch in the basement of a church right across from the National Gallery. We sip wine and linger over sandwiches and salads and re-charge.
Then after lunch we head back to the hotel and all of us pack overnight bags for Paris. We have a private car to take us there so we needn't bother with the train. When we arrive we settle in the hotel quickly and stroll the city. Even though we have only most of the afternoon we manage to see all the sights that are important to us - the Louvre, the Pont Marie, followed by a lovely dinner in a private suite at Lapérouse. After the sun is down we decide to head to the top of the Eiffel Tower, and discover there is no lineup. It's been closed to the public so our group can have a private viewing. Once we get to the top we discover that Duran Duran, with all 5 original band members, is there to give us a private show, playing all the cool B side songs you rarely hear them sing live. After the 2 hour set, we sit and chat with the band over cocktails late into the night and enjoy their company until around 3 am. We head back to the hotel and collapse into the most comfortable king sized bed you can imagine for a blissful, 9 hour sleep.
What is your favorite chemical compound?
yeah, but those are elements. compounds are like... caffeine, or tetrahydrocannabinol, or capsaicin because you like spicy food and the feeling of icyhot.. or glucose bc you're a sugar tooth, etc.
however, you could like the element iron the best because you get hypoferremia often or something like that.
