Do your kids like Radiohead? Are they going to be able to survive three 10+ hour days at Coachella?
For the record, you are way cooler than my parents, who took me to see Garth Brooks for my first concert.
My kids do like Radiohead -- my daughter Cerys LOVES "Idioteque," for example. I think they both like the Kid A album a lot. Regarding Coachella, I'm worried about them getting through the long days; I mean, my own husband can't handle more than 1 day anymore. I try to take them to concerts for bands they have expressed interest in like The White Stripes (back in 2005), Deathcab for Cutie, Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand, Gorillaz and Eisley. I would never force them to go to a show they wouldn't want to see, like NIN.
Amy, who on this board have you met that you find to be surprisingly pleasant in person? Maybe someone you thought was a total asshole / imbecile on here, but later met in person and totally changed your perspective of them.

I regret a few instances of taking drugs that adversely affected me and my life. I can't really go into details. One time I missed Thom Yorke because of drugs though. That sucked.

I avoid a lot of the music threads because I haven't listened to enough new music lately.

When I was a kid. I think I was walking home from school and couldn't wait.

I have no idea how I'll feel in 10 years. I'm afraid that Jacob doesn't really want to go anymore, and I need someone to go with, so I don't know. I'm taking my kids next year, but my kids won't always want to hang with mom. I absolutely won't be partying with my kids in tow though, so we will see how that goes.

I'd change my middle name from Zenobia to Dolores. (kidding, that's not my middle name)

I don't really have plans other than maybe watching 127 hours tonight. I'm working today.

Physical pain, I guess I'll go with the obligatory childbirth answer. I remember screaming as my second child was born, but it was a joyous scream (and screaming DOES help with the pain). My doctor told me to quiet down so that I didn't scare the other expectant mothers.
Best Disneyland ride is Splash Mountain. I love the details (brer rabbit's, brer fox's, and brer bear's houses), the characters, the SONGS, that section in the middle with the black lights and bee hives, I like how in the beginning there's a part where you're outside so you can get hot and ready to get splashed later on in the ride, and you NEVER KNOW for sure how much you'll get splashed. KEEP AWAY FROM THE LAUGHIN' PLACE, YOU MUST BEWARE THE FOX IS THERE, DON'T GO IN!~

1. Literary character: Bathsheba Everdene from Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy, who is very capricious and falls for the wrong sort of man. She's much more attractive than I am though. (I named my pig after her because of her black hair).
2. I'll have to come back to this one. All I can think of now is Animal Collective.
3. I just got an orange Volkswagen GTI (hand-me-down from Jacob), and I really like it, but I've only gotten to use it for a month so far. We don't have much history together yet, but it's as cute as a button. It goes so much faster so much more easily than my minivan did, and I get a lot of compliments on it. We had it lowered too.
Too rough a crowd? I feel you. Everybody clamoring for a minute to forget their Monday to Friday by soaking themselves in liquor and strangers with an almost fevered dismissal of substance. It's almost like the neon only flickers on Saturday nights.
