Getting to know each other.....part 3 - Page 3

post #61 of 105
I lost a dear friend a few years. I did re-establish contact and he seemed willing to be back in touch, but we weren't able to get back to where we were. He is still in my heart but we don't talk any more. he hasn't returned my last few calls. it's too long to go into the whole story here (plus it's pretty boring) but I don't regret trying to re-connect with him.

you have to be true to your heart, and when your heart aches over 'unfinished' business, or just the loss of that friend in general, I think you owe it to yourself to see if you can bridge the waters. I wasn't able to make a lasting connection but I don't regret it one bit. Now I will never have any regrets for letting it slip away because I know that I tried. and at the end of the day isn't that all that matters?

Wow that's an amazing thread I wonder how I could have missed it for so long!!!!
OK I'll try to answer all questions that I remember.
Music is deffinitely something I can't possibly live without - I go with Mr. Cat for Bjork, Blue for Tori Amos and MeowMAn for Portishead
BTW MeowMan have you heard their other album?? It's just perfect. I like music that makes me a bit sad.
I watch ER sometimes, Providence sometimes, mmmm can't think of anything really as I'm not a big TV fan
I'd like to live in my own house rather than in a rented aprtment.
I'd like to have at least three cats
Right now I'm reading the Ninth Buddha by Daniel Easterman (nothing special) and some of my ever lasting favourites is Terry Pratchet. he he he I read serious books too but I'm such a book addict that I can't really pick up just one.
I love looking at the clouds and try to figure out what they look like. I like long summer days when I can go and enjoy my absolutely number one favourite - mountains ( I'va always tried to go into rock climbing but seems I'm a bit overwheight for it ).
OOOps I seem to have gone on fo rtoo long.
Now my question: Would you change your profession if you had a chance to and what would you take up doing?

Blue....please let us know how it goes with trying to make amends with this woman...was she the one who asked you to marry her? I hope you are truley ready for this...it could go either way, rejection, or she may want to pick up right where you left off, and either way...are you sure you are ready? I don't want to see my little Blue get hurt....I might have to fly up there and kick some butt!!

Mr. Cat....were you by any chance talking about Tanya....I know how badly that whole thing hurt you.

Colby....you are right...you tried, and when you go to bed at night that IS all that really matters.

I too lost the friendship of someone I loved VERY much...she was my close friend. I will never forget the fun we had together...we were friends for 3 and a half years, and then she just got so possessive of me, didn't like me spending time with other friends, was even jealous of the time I spent with my husband!!! She tried to control me even though I don't think she even knew she was doing it.
She and I had words, and both said things that hurt the other, and that is it. We have not spoken since March 7th. And we even work together. I would like to make amends, but I feel she owes me an apology first, and why can't she make amends??? Plus I am afraid if I try to make amends, she will reject me and tell me to get lost...and I don't think I can take that blow.

Billie....glad you found this thread! Your question was a good one...so I will leave it as stands...

: Would you change your profession if you had a chance to and what would you take up doing?
post #64 of 105
As I'm currently staying at home to raise my kids, I wouldn't change that for all the money in the world. And I do consider it my current profession.

But before I quit my job, I was a technical writer and instructional designer for a consulting firm in Fort Worth. While I enjoyed my work, especially creating computer-based training courses, I had a hard time dealing with the fact that I spent at least 8 or 9 hours a day benefit corporations, not individuals. I have a degree in technical writing. If I could go back and do it all again, I'd probably get a degree in animal behavior and become an animal psychologist. But that's not going to happen in my lifetime! If I ever return to work, I'd like to do something involved with animals. I'm just not sure what it would be. I have thought about having a pet sitting business when the kids are both in school. I have years till that happens though.

Here's my question. Sorry if it's been asked. I read this thread a long time ago. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?

post #65 of 105
I would live where I grew up: Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey. (Permission granted to chuckle, Sandie). I was up there last weekend for my high school reunion. The people from town that went to the reunion all agreed. It was the best place in the whoe world to be a kid.

I also greatly miss the northeast. There is nothing as beautiful to me. And the food.....Don't even go there.

Finally I miss being so close to New York City and New England. There are so many reminders of US history up there. I love it.

I'll let the question stand.
post #66 of 105

yes, same woman, we had a kindred spark, definitley, but i was too young and the
timing was very off.

i am not looking to pick up where we left off, just to know her again; get to know
her all over again.

i miss her.

thanks Colby for sharing that, i have to agree.

Now I will never have any regrets for letting it slip away because I know that I tried. and at the end of the day isn't that all that matters?

very well said, and very much appreciated. thank you.

Answer: if i could live anywhere, right now, i would be in Victoria, B.C. -
other then that, i would have to think about it, and travel a lot before i could
decide where i'd like to spend the rest of my life

thank you also to Mr.Cat and Deb for your responses, thank you
post #68 of 105
alright, new question ( are you guys out of questions, or what?!
we've only had about a few hundred )

Question: what is your favourite song of the moment?

my favourite song right now is 'Angel' by Dave Matthews Band
post #69 of 105
My favorite some of the moment is "I do love you" by Leann Rimes (spelling?) from the Sound Track of Coyote Ugly. My all time favorite is "You're all I need to get by" by Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrell.

post #70 of 105
My favorite song of the moment is the new song by LifeHouse, but as soon as I came on to post about it I forgot the name. Help me out here, Colby!!! I have only heard it a few times and I saw the video for it just this morning. . . . Oh, gosh this muscle I call a BRAIN is not in shape today. . . .
post #71 of 105

Lifehouse, 'Hanging by a moment'

post #72 of 105
post #73 of 105
Right now my favorite song is by Point of Grace. I think it's called something like "Blue Skies."
post #74 of 105
Uh, I don't think I have a current song of the moment because I have about given up listening to current music. This week I am mostly listening to a CD I burned of obscure stuff from the late '60s and early '70s, including, among other things: Taxi by Harry Chapin and the Theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

New question:

What do you wish you were eating right this minute?

Think I could go for some Buffalo Wings and bleu cheese dressing.
post #75 of 105
Right NOW I wish I were eating CHEESE POPCORN
But Buffalo Wings sounds good too. (I wuld rather have "Honey-Bar-b-que" sauce though. . .
post #76 of 105
Okay, I've some catching-up to do here.

Debby, yes that was Tonya I was referring to. Mind, it wasn't an erotic relationship. It was filial with a bit of agape thrown in, but any lost friendship is a tragedy in my book.

Favorite song of the moment: "Pictures of Matchstick Men," by Status Quo (1968).

What I'd like to be eating just now: Anything which requires chewing, such as meat (it's the end of the month).

post #77 of 105
Well, Joe there's always the ever-popular SPAM .

That qualifies as meat, sort of...
post #78 of 105

tell me you did not just go there! now we may have to endure more lovely
photographs of that simply amazing & delicious product

please Mr.Cat, spare us this time 'round

i wish i was eating a sesame bagel with loads of cream cheese
post #79 of 105

This is a payback for starting that whole shaving thread.
post #80 of 105
lmao!!! i sure hope i didnt offend your homecoming ears with my raunchy thread, Deb!!

i know how you Queens can be about that kind of thing
post #81 of 105
A Bagel and Cream Cheese sounds but so is FRIED SPAM & EGGS!!!!

(sorry, blue, but I HAD to go there)

The made me do it. . . . .

Joe and I have this sort of "I Double-Hound Dog-Dare You" type thing going on when it comes to SPAM
post #82 of 105

how did i know you would be right in here with the Spam lingo?!

and what a delightful way to spend my 1000th post, talking about Spam!
post #83 of 105

Your 1000th post will now be forever etched in your memory. If I had access I'd make you "Spam Cat". Hmm, that gives me an idea for mine........
post #84 of 105
alright, alright!! new question? okay...

Question: if you could go on spending spree right now, where would you go, and what would you buy?

for me, i'm torn between Electronics (dvd player, new laptop, digital camera, and so on)
and clothes! seeing as how i havent actually bought new clothes in 3? years

i can dream though
post #85 of 105
Aside from an entire case of SPAM!, I'd opt for an entire new wardrobe, a new computer, a DVD player, new furniture, patio furniture, and a remodeled kitchen.

The spam will not die easily.
post #86 of 105

i can try though, Deb, i know how easily distracted some of you oldtimers can get :LOL:

*runs out the door before she is hit with fried spam & eggs*

post #87 of 105
One more accomplishment for the Spam, blue. It got you out of the house. See, was that so bad?
post #88 of 105
Yes, that's what I'd buy if I could afford such a luxury. Sure, the SPAM would be welcome right about now; but I need new clothes. Oh, well — I'm off to the army-surplus store as soon as possible.

Actually, Wal Mart will have to do! Or, maybe, one of those used-clothing places the goth/grunge/punk/riot-grrl people frequent. There's got to be something there which fits me.

post #89 of 105
If I had "Unlimited Funds" this OLD TIMER would buy 2 of those "Fancy Cat Trees" for my babies. and also some equiptment to add to my WebTV so I could print and scan and post images the way MR.CAT does!

Also, a DVD player would be nice!!!
I don't need any new clothes; 'cause I dont go anywhere. . . . ::jarswim:

(but that is okay 'cause I got SIX FLAGS in my bedroom!!! _V_
post #90 of 105
I officially need new clothes because I have burned an infinite number of calories laughing at these posts today.

Darlene: Was Winston Churchill making that now famous "V" sign, not for victory, but to indicate he had a bed like yours at home?
