    um so now that we're on the subject of feelings and non living things, does anyone else talk to their computer and car when it's not working? I do and I'm convinced it obeys me. I don't care what any logical T says my laptop loves me and I love my laptop. and sometimes me shouting at it is nesssecary.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Yes. About ten years ago I opened up on my vacuum cleaner in a very abusive way and then I realized that somewhere along the way I had become capable of being verbally abusive and it was a wake up call to work on other ways to express feelings like that!

    Uhhhh I don't think I asked THEM either... I just thought so because of how they act like to me. My car growls a bit... the turbo engine and all. So I went with masculine... the old car was feminine though. As to my computer... my laptop is a little 12incher... but yah I really really should have asked shouldn't I?

    Why don't the two of us visit together?

    Uhhh I'm not sure... why don't you ask my car?

    *nods to purple* All the time. I say hello to my car whenever I drive it out... say sorry and pat the steering wheel whenever I do something dumb while driving. When the computer doesn't feel like working... I ask it nicely and top it off with a please.

    I also talk to the birds and stuff outside... but yes, I'm :crazy:

    I don't count talking to birds as crazy. They are talking to us in their language all the time. Why not answer back?

    My toys when I was little were my best friends. I was really OCD about keeping the boxes and styrofoam they came in and putting them back in their respective boxes and styrofoam slots. Especially my Power Rangers (original cast) toys! My mom thought it was unhealthy and threw the boxes away and I cried and cried. One time my dad took away my catwoman toy because he said it was a doll (I still haven't forgiven him; it was only 4" tall and made of plastic... >___>) and I felt like I lost one of my best friends or something. When they didn't have boxes I would sit them all upright in my toy chest so they would be "comfortable" and all that. Toy Story really reminded me of my childhood and how I thought my toys were alive when I wasn't around. Omg I was a total nut case.

    My ENFP friend I was talking about earlier has all of the Zords in the original boxes. It's between those and Transformers for best toys of the nineties.

    This post made me feel 8 again.

    I was convinced my toys came alive whenever I turned my back and would always try to catch them moving, but never did.

    I've always considered Transformers toy's of the 80's To me there is only the originals I grew up watching, I used to make the sounds and stuff playing with them as a kid. Anything after the originals I don't consider to be true Transformers, in fact I absolutely hate the new movie that came out.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    I've never been overly attached to objects. When I was a kid, my stuffed animals were accidentally thrown out. Maybe that had some affect on my psyche because I end up throwing out a bunch of stuff every few years.

    I do have attachment to books and papers. Also, I do have a sense that technological objects have personality.

As children we both felt like these objects had "feelings", and if we threw them away we would be hurting those "feelings". We both of course know now that they don't have feelings but we still are hesitant to throw them away.

    So, anyone else have a similar story or are we just crazy?
    I tend to hold on to old assignments and worksheets, but I never keep old temporary writing utensils (meaning ones that aren't refillable or that fall apart quickly) after they run out of ink/lead.

    That's an odd tendency of mine. I never want to throw out anything that works or can be easily fixed, but when something is broken beyond repair, I throw it away.

    Even so, I've accumulated so many things that I'll be really freaked out if I ever have to move because I'll worry that something will get lost or ruined in the process (My mother and I have lived in this same apartment since at least 1999, possibly earlier).
