10 things I'd like you to know about me
« on: April 23, 2008, 02:28:39 PM »
10 Things I'd like you to know about me

1) I'm great at holding people's private thoughts and fears with the strictest of confidence
2) I'm loyal, loving, and at times I'm idealistic to my own detriment
3) One of my earliest and greatest heartbreaks to date was when I was 8 years old and found out that Snow White wasn't real but just a fairy tale
4) I hang up on solicitors before they can even get a word out
5) I refer to testing positive as my Joan of Ark moment and don't even really know what the hell I mean by that
6) I can't stand the Grateful Dead
7) I believe that one of the most healing words in the English language is FUCK
8) I couldn't hook up my own VCR with my life dependent upon it
9) It took me a long time to trust that God isn't punishing me with my HIV
10) I love Indian food and Sushi, and if I get to have sex and one of those food choices on the same day I consider myself truly blessed
BONUS) I can't spell worth a shit and I was an English major in college...go figure...and thank God for spell check on this thing.

How about you?  Tell me ten things you want me and others to know about you...

Bethelove, it would take me some time to think of 10 things I would want people to know about me.  But you made me smile, and I thank you for that. :-*

Betty Tracy,

I can't remember who it is on this site who quotes you, but I love the quote about having one foot in yesterday, one foot in tommorow--and pissing all over today...  If I had a dime for every moment I wasn't living in the present I'd be a millionaire.

Thanks Wishful,

Question:  If you were a song what song would you be?  What song best illustrates your greatness?

And in regards to #4 on your list, check out this website that will give your take on procrastination a totally new twist.  www.freerice.com It's lots of fun and makes me feel good about myself,...especially when I use it to ward off the procrastination guilt.

Peace out- BTL

wow, can almost copy Wishful's list 1:1, but will write my own

1) someone who hates to see people upset or sad
2) who loves animals
3) loves traveling and being outdoors
4) & loves to love
5) wants to write a book even if no one ever reads it
6) has a foul mouth (but much less in writing)
7) battles lots of anxieties, sleep disorders, bad memories, all that crap
8) is homesick but sick of home when was still there
9) misses my parents a lot and worry about them pretty constantly
10) a procrastinator if there ever was one...

also got a 8) instead of an 8...

3.)    I love my cat Moe more than I love most people
4.)    I regret never having children, I would have made an awesome mother

6.)    I could hibernate for days without ever leaving my house and be completely content
7.)    I wish my brothers and sisters were proud of me
8.)    I am shy, but if you asked anyone who knew me, they would tell you differently
9.)    I fear I will be alone for the rest of my life
10.)  I push people away so as not to inflict my life on them
