Hahaha brilliant choice. Like when he has a son! Awwww.
It's been quiet in here for a couple days. I imagine a lot of people are frantically preparing for this week's festivities. Marc (it is with a C right?), are you addicted to anything, chemical or otherwise? Name several if applicable. Also, who is next or do we sit this week out?
It IS Marc with a C, thanks. (Bonus GTNKFBM...short for Marcus).
Addiction is a tricky word. It implies (I believe) a continued desire for something despite the negative imapcts. We've already established that I am not a "drug guy". And while I drink regularly (mostly beer), I rarely drink to excess. While I may be chemically dependent on a couple of things...namely Prilosec for my stomach and Claritin for my allergies...it's not the same thing.
Food and sex addictions are tricky too. We are all hardwired to NEED food and sex. At what point does it change into an addiction? My weight is my biggest health problem, however I don't consider myself addicted to food. I do not gorge myself, either one thing or many, at least not regularly. I simply have POOR eating habits, combined with a sedentary job and irregular workout habits. Sex addiction is a tricky area too. Yes, I have a very strong sex drive, but unless it starts to negatively impact my life, I don't see how it is an addiction. And believe me, I've been through plenty of long "dry spells" in my life and handled them all.
Finally, I guess you could say I'm addicted to things like message boards, internet chat and Facebook. However, my job entails sitting at a computer all day, with a lot of down time while animation renders or I capture footage. When I am out in the world or otherwise occupied, I don't wish I could get back to the computer. I will not be bringing my laptop to Coachella, and will probably do very little phone browsing/posting.
I'm probably in denial about all these things. Oh well.
I think we should sit this week out, but I will try to pick someone for next week today.
Maybe Caffeine. I drink a lot of Iced Tea. However, I don't really feel like I get much of an effect off it.
Do you really think there are sex addicts? I have a hard time with this new craze of celebrities going out and banging who they can, because they can, and turning around and saying they are addicted to sex. At what point does liking sex get to be considered an addiction?
i understand that as the definition, I just was wondering if he bought into the whole concept. I have a hard time accepting that as an actual addiction. I see it more as an excuse people are now using when they get caught.
According to Wikipedia, its existence is debated by experts.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
This week is a break week. Marc can select the next victim once he returns from Coachella. In the mean time he can continue to answer questions or turn the tables on someone who has asked him questions for a few days. Next week can start on Tuesday if enough people are back or care.
But David Duchovny? He's a good looking famous guy who got laid a lot. I think the real test is...would people still think you had done a bad thing if you were single? Does Duchovny get laid more than George Clooney? I doubt it.
Now that Coachella is over let's get this thread and the board back on track. Marc, who was your least favorite board member you met at Coachella this year?
least favorite. ha ha ha ha ha
Actually, no more questions for Marc, it's time for him to pick someone new, once he answers that last question of course!
Bloody hell, there was this thing. Hang on...
I want to be it. Pick me. My week was three years ago and I think I was aksed maybe 4 questions the whole time. Come on let's build bridges.
FOI would make a great pick
See? I would make a great pick.
I agree. I'm sure Marc is fine with it as well. Go.
I vehemently oppose this rapscallion and will promptly quit the boards if she is elected.
Amy I like what you've done with the font formatting on your signature. Real cool shit, that's some real cool shit.
I second foi, and I never come in this thread so this is a special moment, people.
