Can you share that playlist with us?
Well I must be a heathen, too. I just put them in the basket like @aircircle, although it’s not entirely willy-nilly.
I had no idea what those pieces of plastic in the dishwasher were for, I took them out of mine within a week.
My GF puts bowls etc into the dishwasher face up. Now that’s unforgivable. (Jk, but…really)
Ok. I’m way late to the party, was visiting with my nephew so I read some last night but this game looked fun so I wrote out my answers before I got to the end of the thread! Lol.
#1. Worst job. Mortgage processing. It wouldn’t have been bad except I was 1 person literally handling everything for 8 branches’ mortgages and was doing them in my sleep. Took 4 people to replace me and still they ended up hiring a mortgage company because the 4 couldn’t handle it. Fuck that job!
#2. Worst Advice: Hmm. Play their game back-mom meant well but fuck all that, I love games but not mental ones. It’s bad to be selfish. Stay, it’ll get better as he gets older. Everyone else does it, it’s normal. (Fuck normal)
#3. Best advice: Live life on your own terms. Long engagements are good things, this was from my dad at age 13 right before he died. Best advice he ever gave me, I had a 14 year engagement where if we had been married, I would be paying alimony out because he was a complete bum at the end. Also, don’t own anyone else’s issues-you can never fix that, only they can. Oh and, not to drink at my grandfathers funeral because it would taint my memory of HIS day with my relapse. So true!
#4. Treating people who annoy me for no reason? I usually just avoid/ignore them as much as possible but I’m not mean about it.
#5. Who makes me laugh the most? My dog, hands down!!!
#6. How do I feel most misunderstood? I really don’t, because I really dont care what others think of me and how I roll. Hell I don’t understand it myself sometimes lol.
#7. Best trait? My eyes and my heart
#8. Goals for 2019. Live my life exactly how I want to for ME.
#9. Who is my best friend? I literally have several and many many more that call me their best friend. Like, more than 10 I would say. But my go-to people that I can tell anything to is my girlfriend @Yomomma, my BFF Jen and my other best friend Erin.
#10 Something you would like to change about yourself or improve on? My connection to me, exercising more.
#11. Who I would love to be stuck in an elevator with? Ok, I read this before bed last night and i literally dreamt we all met in an elevator lmao!
#12. If my house was on fire what would I grab? Once everyone was out, I would grab pictures and family heirlooms if possible. I’ve dreamt about this more than once.
#12a-Most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you? Ripping the ass out of my pants in 5th grade. Thank God I had a sweatshirt lmao.
#13. What job would you be terrible at? A surgeon. Cutting people open and breaking apart their bones to fix them…I’m all set. My nephew and I just had this conversation last night lol.
#14. If you could be a member of any tv sitcom family, what would it be? The old Roseanne, just like my house growing up lol.
#15. What did you last relationship teach you? Or what do you think about when you’re by yourself. I’ll answer both. It taught me how much someone else can manipulate you into controlling you and keeping you from who you are. When I’m alone, I think about ways I can stay sane and all the things I cant wait to change.
#16. 5 things you’d take in a zombie apocalypse?
My guns, my boy, food, water storage and a tent?
#17. If you were kind/queen/other royalty for a day, what would be your first rule that you would change? I would make mental healthcare more accessible. It’s a pretty serious thing and resources are constantly being cut and people are really suffering from it.
#18. Favorite toy growing up? Teddy Ruxpin.
#19. What is something you really dislike but have no good reason for disliking? Injustice and the legal system. Also arrogance and big egos.
#20. Cure for hiccups? Putting water in my mouth, while standing putting my head down by my feet and swallowing. If that doesn’t work, drinking water through a butter knife in my mouth sideways. Strange but it works!
If anyone wants to play again, I had a question where I was curious which fictional TV character is most like you?
Mine is Donna from that 70s show.
I’m supposedly exactly like Debra Morgan, Dexter Morgan’s sister from Dexter…
Hey! I’m just waking up and reading through this…loving the convo as a foodie music nerd
I think I’m a thread like “what’s up Friday night” people are just looking for a space to meet up and talk (how cool would it be if we could actually all meet up?) so sidetrack away. I think people try to stay mostly on topic if someone reaches out for specific help, but…even then things can get led astray. These side convos are what help us get to know one another! Glad you’re here
On this thread sidetracked is totally ok! On the ones where people are looking for help, we try not to sidetrack those but it does happen sometimes depending on where the conversations go. Then people more technologically smarter than I am, move it lol.
I have never watched it but now I’m going to have to look into it!
#1. Worst job. I was a receptionist/shipping at a pornography distributorship. I had to take the call, write down the order, go down to the warehouse, pick out the VHS and then wrap it in brown wrap and send it out. (Had to walk past the film set on the way.) Yikes. I was 18 and high on coke most the time.
#2. Worst Advice: “Keep doing it, even if you don’t like it.” or “Never let them see you sweat!” I don’t agree with it. Life is finite. Enough unhappiness comes without our permission. We don’t need to invite it in.
#3 “Don’t try to be perfect. Perfect is the enemy of good. Take perfect off of your horizon. It doesn’t exist. You’ll never get there. Be damn good today.” (Also my best job!)
#4. Treating people who annoy me for no reason? Death glare. I have a good one. I am generally pretty compassionate and try to remain aware that everyone has a story. Sometimes, RBF is real!
#5. Who makes me laugh the most? My best friend in California.
#6. How do I feel most misunderstood? The only time is when I am trying to talk to my ex about our kids and he reforms each and every word. Now I usually put things in writing.
#7. Best trait? My eyes.
#8. Goals for 2019. Authenticity. No hiding. 100% painful truths - which I bet don’t turn out so painful.
#9. Who is my best friend? My girlfriend who makes me laugh most. She goes by “T” and she has been in my corner since 1994.
#10 Something you would like to change about yourself or improve on? @Ifs talked about it earlier in this thread. I would like to stop the self-sabotage. I have an incredible business and continue to work for others because I don’t get out my own way. I will delete self-sabotage from my DMO.
#11. Who I would love to be stuck in an elevator with? @Yoda-Stevie - but not if he wants to fight me.
#12. If my house was on fire what would I grab? After kids and pups, rat, and rabbits, everything can go. I lost everything once. It’s not important.
#12a-Most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you? I don’t really get embarrassed. Interesting. I did poop on the table giving birth.
#13. What job would you be terrible at? h Anything to do with bodily fluids. Just - no.
#14. If you could be a member of any tv sitcom family, what would it be? Maybe Family Ties.
#15. What did your last relationship teach you? Or what do you think about when you’re by yourself. I’ll answer both. It taught me how much someone else can manipulate you into controlling you and keeping you from who you are. When I’m alone, I think about ways I can stay sane and all the things I cant wait to change. (I am just leaving @MandiH answer!) Thanks for laying out the questions for me!
#16. 5 things you’d take in a zombie apocalypse?
Bow & Arrow (because the ammo is potentially reusable), food, water,matches and a cyanide tablet (just like in spy shows).
#17. If you were kind/queen/other royalty for a day, what would be your first rule that you would change? Hmmmm. I agree in improving mental health. Demystify, decriminalize, make care accessible. Getting it done? Who knows how. It’s going to be awhile in this country.
#18. Favorite toy growing up? Definitely my Barbies. However, they were usually doing pretty crazy stuff, like crashing their RV down into a ravine, with GI Joe rappelling down to save them.
#19. What is something you really dislike but have no good reason for disliking? Repetitive sounds…clicking, breathing, chewing, tapping. I didn’t have it before I was a linguist, which meant a lot of static in my ears for hours - so maybe there is a reason.
#20. Cure for hiccups? Teaspoon of straight sugar. Gross but effective.
Oh this a sidebar type of thread! I’m happy I got to know you better
These threads and discussion protect my sobriety. I’m a wee bit isolated at the moment, I needed to shoot the shit with amazing sober peeps
Yay! That’s what I was hoping to hear happy to get to know you better too! 20 questions was so fun!
Thanks Mandi! Just starting to find my sober voice so feeling a bit more comfortable putting myself out there a little. Appreciate the feedback!
Ok, wouldn’t know how to actually share the link but the title is Northern soul, Ska, Motown and Mod classics.
Ok! Show off!
I’m going to listen to it now. I haven’t figured out how to link to threads on here, so my abilities are limited.
So I just went to do the dishes. Got the dishwasher set up and was so excited to pop those plastic silverware holders back in for use, now that I know what they’re for (organizing!)
Then I realized putting them in those slots means having to touch the part of the silverware that watery, old food is on. No thank you.
sigh the dream was nice while it lasted
Wash the dishes before you wash the dishes.
Flip up the organiser and chuck them in like a heathen.
There is only one correct answer.
I took the little separators out because they where too fussy for me! Wife didn’t like it but it stayed!
Yes. The answer is wash the dishes before you wash the dishes!
