I was trying to keep that question as open-ended as possible to see how you'd interpret it. I think I meant something similar to "what were you like in high school?", but you said you were basically the same. I was most curious as to whether you were a partier, because I definitely wasn't/am not. I don't dislike alcohol, but I rarely drink (every couple of months or so) and it's rarer that I really get *drunk* (a couple of times a year). I don't understand the appeal of drinking til you puke every weekend. I like being in control of myself too much.Could you be a little more specific? :confused: Kind of a broad question...
But I'm not a partier.
THIS IS HUGE FOR ME. I would rather stay up all night having a great conversation than spend the evening at a bar geting smashed. In fact, I dont like bars, because I hate small talk and because I hate being around drunk people.My social events are usually of the sort where you can hear yourself (and other people) talk, without having to yell. I just chatting, you know? I don't want to give it up for the sake of alcohol...
One of my former coworkers has made me believe that I'm weird (in a bad way) because of this. He said that most people talk about their weekends in terms of where they went and what they did, whereas I talk about who I saw and the conversations I had. I love my chatty tendencies and my love of deep conversations, but that conversation with him left me feeling like I'm doing it wrong.
Right? I was thinking about this because I just started doing a 30-day meme on livejournal, and I was all like ZOMG A WHOLE MONTH OF SURVEY!Surveys are the bestest things ever.
I like Advice Dog and his ilk, but I don't get pedobear, really.But some of them I just don't get - e.g. "pedobear" and "advice dog".
That, my friend, is SO MUCH more fun than alcohol!If it's a funny story that I'm telling, and if most people are responding the right way, then I absolutely LOVE being the center of attention.
Interesting! This is a way in which we are different. I am not a good actor, like, at all. I was in a couple of plays in high school, but I sucked at it and started doing stagecraft and being a techie instead. I just find it hard to be anything other than myself!Also, I get the feeling that I'm a good enough actor that, if I wrote out an internal script for myself (since I can't improvise worth crap), I could tell very convincing lies about very serious things. But I would feel so guilty about it afterwards, if I did. So I haven't, I don't, and I probably won't.
I was just curious. I have SO little patience for nonfiction and sci-fi, but we are still similar. Some of my favorites are biographies told in a funny way. Have you read "Kick Me"? That kind of thing.History, adventure, sci-fi, humor, true crime, biographies... As long as the book isn't boring, obtuse, or pretentious, I'm okay with it, for the most part.
