Re: Incredibly Lonely... Is This Normal?

Okay, uh... what if I have no idea how to.. um, make friends? Upon looking back, I realize I've never really done it. All of my friendships have either resulted from them making the initiative or meeting the friends of my friends. Otherwise, never. And this is the sort of skill I need to acquire, as...

Re: Words that require a certain partner

To my chagrin. I did a search on google - wait, who says that anymore? I googled "chagrin -to -my" and only got place names.

What IS a chagrin? I didn't know I had one until I used that sentence.

Re: Books you loved as a child, do they stand the test of time?

I still find myself in the children's section at libraries. There seems to be a lower ratio of crap:good books there. Elsewhere I need direction, a recommendation to find. I can't just browse or I'll be lost among the shit. ("Help, I'm lost among the shit!") Louis Sachar was my favourite a...

Re: Has Anyone Ever Mistaken You for High? (When You Weren't.)

Because of all that people tend to look at me strangely, call me a stoner and avoid me. I once had someone point me out in a restaurant and ask his kid: "Look at her. Do you want to end up like that? Because that's what drugs do to you." I also had a lady see me on the sidewalk and pull h...

Re: Underrated and Unknown movies

I'd have to say The Fisher King.

Nanowrimo is really helping me see that I'd much prefer to make a movie or write a play. I have no interest in writing descriptions, so what's the point?
