Re: Swears, curses, oaths

Piffle Fribbits! It's my own creation, well not "piffle" since that's an actual word, but the "fribbits" is all me. Sometimes I say the whole thing, sometimes just the "piffle" part. Frequently if I just say the first half friends will say the second half (which amuses ...

Re: Woman thread - NO HOMERS CLUB

My doctor back home always took me at my word for everything sex/drugs/alcohol/smoking/etc related, but I don't know how much of that is because she knows me outside of the doctor/patient relationship.

Re: Woman thread - NO HOMERS CLUB

OK either I am underinformed or your doctor is full of shit. You cannot be exposed to the paploma virus if you haven't had penetrative intercourse. You're supposed to get a pap smear in the first (one? two? it's different in the UK to what I was taught) years of becoming sexually active . There's n...

Re: "Scrabble" Discussion

I gathered from that that she assumed I was homosexual (in actuality, asexual, but whatever). *waves* me too, have had a couple really odd conversations trying to explain that one. And back to the topic... We've had family game nights since my brother and I were little. We're now both living far fr...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

knit frequently (usually while reading ...) how does one achieve this? do you put the book on a stand or do you have a beefy third arm sticking out of your stomach like in those ballpark franks commercials? I tried a number of different book holder-open thingies that didn't work very well before di...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

*waves* Hello to the fora. I'm Laura. I'm 29 and a director/technical director at one of the local TV stations here in Rhode Island. I tend to register as very geeky when around "normal" folk, but not quite as much when in 100% geek groups. I read a lot, watch more TV than is probably heal...
