    My son set up a new bar-be-cue grill last weekend. I didn't go to the grocery store for hamburger meat because I hate going. I didn't go all week.

    I stopped by Burger King yesterday, told them I wanted the burgers plain, and to put the cheese in a separate container....

    Yes, you know what I did.

    I hate to watch TV, and I never do.

    However, I watch Ugly Betty and Scrubs on Hulu every Sunday night, after everybody's gone to bed.

    And, I buy the season DVD's for both shows, and MASH, and I rewatch them all the time. Nothing else.

    I've never ever watched Oprah or a single reality show. No "idols" or Dancing with the Stars. Nothing but Hulu, and those two shows.

    Also? If I'm visiting someone and he/she turns on the TV, I leave. How RUUUUUUDE! I include my mother in this.

    I figure, if a TV show is more important than conversation with guests, so be it. Let them watch in solitude! That's apparently what they want anyway.

    I don't know what Twitter is. I just figured out what I think Blue Ray is. I have no clue how to check the voice mail on my cell phone that I've had for years and have no desire to learn how. (mainly cause it ticks off the in-laws that I don't check it.) :lol:

    I don't know how to charge the digital camera. :whistle: Hubby maintains that. :) Yet, I can find anything I want on the computer and figure out computer stuff fairly easily and he never questions it.

    And I too, stay in pj's till hubby calls and says he's on the way. Then I scramble like crazy. or I watch tv till he pulls up and then I go running and unload the dishwasher like a wild woman. :unsure:

    I secretly erase hubby's old Cops shows that he Dvr's every single episode and act like it was a power failure or something wrong with DVR.

    I forgot one - for almost a year I acted like I couldn't figure out how to check the messages on the new home phone that my husband bought. I would just check the caller ID and call people back because I hate listening to all the junk phone calls and long messages that end with "call me back". Sadly it ended one day when my husband got rather irritated and insisted that I "learn" in case he ever left an emergency message. My flip "leave it on my cell phone" didn't go over so well :( :lol

    Jem- treat yourself!! An at home pedi is easy, cheap and looks almost as good as the salon ones...


    Me...I'm addicted to reality television (I have dreams of going on The Amazing Race-my family laughs at that one) and also watch 'Nancy Grace' EVERY night...I own at least 20 pairs of sandals, more than 8 pairs of black shoes and admit to buying a pair of shoes that were a 1/2 size too small because they were on sale, sexy and out of my size...I figure they're good if my husband drops me AT THE DOOR of a restaurant and then sit all night...:whistle:

    Hmm... lol. Don't think too badly of me ;)

    DF and I once staged a fake fight/break up and bet a sushi dinner to see how long it would take one of our female "friends" to move in on him (he's very cute and personable).

    I won. She invited him back to her place that night

    From the time my children were tiny, I've kept candy in the freezer, in foil bags marked "chicken fat." I got the idea from Erma Bombeck. It works.

    Sounds so simple... I have huge sensory issues. I can't STAND the sound or feel of the nail file. During my last pedi/mani, the lady wore these rubber gloves and I almost threw up. They had powder all over the outside, and I could hardly take it when she touched my skin. I can't stand to file my own nails. Usually I just grow my fingernails out until they break. I peel my toenails off because I can't stand the sound of the clippers.

    I don't think my secret is TOO bad. My husband is a real brand snob but some of the things he wants me to buy are way too expensive. I have bought the brands he likes in the past and kept the containers/boxes. I refill them with cheaper brands. He never notices. :rolleyes:

    Maybe if you did it yourself you could work on de-sensitizing yourself. Pedicures are actually a part of good health care. Ignoring nail growth can lead to ingrown nails and infection. Dead skin should be sloughed off to prevent bunions and corns. Foot massage improves circulation....Plus you live in California!! Sandal weather is around the corner and you're going to have to put those Merrels away in favor of some cute flip flops (do you know my shoe obsession?) ...Go get a color of nail enamel that you love...It's a cheap and healthy indulgence...

    My SO and I would NEVER have sex if that was the case. haha. He has a CPAP so he is pumped full of air all night. He farts almost constantly. He did fart during one time though, and he learned his lesson never to do that again. lol.

    I can't let this thread die, I love it. And I just thought of another one...

    I love reading graffitti in the school bathroom. I am often very tempted to write my own or at least correct the grammar on the student's graffitt. Maybe I will make a coffee table book of graffitti one day... Hmmm...

    Colors have texture and textures have color to me. I have to be really careful when describing something since I will often substitute one for the other.

    That is a very neat and unusual quality to have GoldenPoppy. I can't even imagine how things must appear to you, I find myself jealous from an art teacher's perspective.

    I purposefully don't listen to my voice mails, and I let my box fill up. I just hate listening to them.

    Golden poppy, I think that is called Synaesthesia. I had a student do a speech on it. It's when your circles are crunchy, and blue is sweet, something like that!

    Exactly. I've learned to be very exact and think about what I need to say before I say it since my descriptions don't make sense to many people. The first time I ever described the sky to DH as crunchy (there were lots of little clouds) he thought I was crazy. He's learned to ask me again if something doesn't make sense to him.

    I have a phobia of squirrels. Always HAVE had it. Once...in full view of the eyes of MANY students of mine- in front of the school, there was a black squirrel in my way. :eek:

    I tried to hold my head up straight and keep moving forward...but I was crying and begging the squirrel to run away.

    I swear the little bugger was taunting me.

    I have seriously done that too! My secret: I am very grossed out by veins. I just try not to look at the top of my hand too much. I don't know what I'll do when I have a baby. I guess it will just wear a hat or a wig until it gets enough hair! Ha! Just joking....maybe... :whistle:

    A sad secret: I used to be very depressed in high school because my peers thought I was anorexic (sp?). I just couldn't gain any weight. I would sneak into the kitchen at night and eat as much junk food as I could. Still, I was just so skinny!! Now I don't have that problem anymore! But in high school it was a really big deal. I was actually jealous of girls that were a little overweight.

    Ok--i hope my media specialist (the copyright law mafia queen) isn't reading this. :mad:

    I whited out the part that says "copying if forbidden by law" on some test practice papers today. It was only 2 papers and I only used them in my small group with some students. They just needed the extra practice and it was reading passages. I know that it isn't right, but I mean if it is for the kids................ :whistle:

    I did say a little prayer and apology as I hit the print button. :eek:

    I think Mr I is very sexy. One day he wore jeans and a boxer to school and while in the teacher lounge, he bent over and all I saw was a nice set of ass.

    Just looking though....I have a SO.

    Definitely not. We decided to do it because she was making me so uncomfortable and DF thought I was overreacting. I know my man is totally hot and super-awesome to boot, but seriously... flirting with him when I'm sitting RIGHT THERE? I wasn't born yesterday.

    Of course, there was a certain satisfaction in proving him wrong :whistle:

    :spitwater: OMG, that's awesome!!! HAHAHAHAHAA!!! :lol:

    I never really had a boyfriend before I started dating my husband when I was 19, but there was a guy in HS I went out with a few times (and was the first guy I kissed). He had it BAAAAD for me, but the feeling just wasn't mutual. Anyway, we recently reconnected on Facebook and I saw he has a girlfriend. Is it bad that I took pleasure in the fact that I'm so much better looking than she is? :angel:

    I have tried to stalk my ex-fiance online, but he is no where to be found. No myspace, facebook, linkedin, twitter, etc. Nothing.

    A mutual friend is still really good friends with him, however, and posted a few pictures of him on their facebook account. His new gf is in them as well. I have spent hours scrutinizing her looks, trying to figure out her personality, etc. Stupid, I know. But we were together for 4 years (dh and i just surpassed that amount of time), and I'm morbidly curious. He looks exactly the same.

    I was severely underweight in my 20's. I was a size 0. I used to pray to gain weight.

    Now, I'm 32 and I'm fat:mad: In 2007, I went from a 2 to a 4 (I loved being a 4), and I went from a 4 to a 10 in 2 months. Something ain't right about that. I hate being overweight.
