I came on this thread, when searching for something on VB, and remembered how fun it was reading about everyone's random goofiness. Since we have a lot of newbies, I thought we might give it another go.



So, dish....



ETA: There is also this thread https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ad.php?t=24735

and this thread; https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ad.php?t=47183, but they're both old.

don't think I've ever posted in those

I'll try to think of something ... I'm afraid I'm rather boring!

Hmmm... will these do?



--I talk to myself incessently. Recently I've given over to speaking to myself in Spanish rather than English.



--I have three Celtic-knot rings I wear most of the time, two on my left ring finger and one on my right ring finger. I tried doing it the other way around, but my fingers didn't want to switch.



--I love hugs.



--I abhor Henry Higgins' character in My Fair Lady and think Eliza was absolutely stupid to go back to him.



--I very rarely sit with my legs just out in front of me. I have to have them tucked somewhere.



--Some movies/musicals I like for the music but think the storyline sucks. Examples are Grease and The Phantom of the Opera.



--I didn't like soccer because of a childhood embarassment in connection with the sport until a student I was tutoring in my last semester of college was on the school's soccer team, and I thought if I proved I could be interested in a sport he loved, he might be able to find something valuable and interesting in the academics I was trying to tutor him in. My plan worked, sort of. He dropped out of school, and I now love soccer.

Oh, I just looked at the queue and it said that she made a post 1 minute ago. (in the Slut Thread, I think), so you must've done it wicked fast.

I've been in love with David Duchovny for about 10 years.



I sometimes run five miles and then don't shower before bed.



I spend more time on Veggieboards than my employers would be happy with.

- I can't sleep unless the fan is on. Also, I can only sleep if I am face down, with my forehead propped up with a pillow. And, I can't sleep unless I have "Bobo", the king of all pillows.



- When I was 5, I peed my pants at Disneyland because I was scared of the people who walked around in character costumes. I turned around and was caught off guard by Pluto, who was standing right behind me, and had a meltdown.

I am also uncomfortable around people in costumes.

- I can go through an entire meal without drinking water (or anything else).



- I've never drank anything alcoholic and never will.



- I always sleep with these two little pillows with my head sandwiched between them.



That's all I can think of for now.

- I watch movies on my computer, over, and over, and over again if i have nothing to do that day. I don't change movies, I just watch the same movie, over, and over again.



- Doing the above, I have seen 50 first dates dozens of times, and I'm still not tired of it.



- I'm afraid of moths.

I wonder if I can do this... I'll try. I skimmed through some of the other threads. Very interesting



~ I can't decide what I want to be when I grow up... and I'm already grown up.

~ I love dancing outside... huge fields are great.

~ I'm not cheap but also not-materialistic.

~ I've never been stung by a bee, or hornet, or anything stingy. Which makes me petrified of all stingy critters.

~ When I was much younger, I did a lot of drugs. A lot. And I don't regret it.

~ I'm incredibly passionate about my Husband.

~ I'm Kinky.

~ I was one of the best writers in all of my english classes.

~ I love the beach but I hate hot weather.

~ I always try and do the right thing. Intent matters to me.

~ I'm ridiculously easy to scare. My Husband places silly putty on the wall in random places to hear me scream and then laugh at myself.

~ I love knee high socks.

~ I sneeze like a cat.

~ This was way easier than I thought and actually a whole lot of fun! I want to keep going but I'll stop

-I love to drive. I know I'm supposed to be all enviro about it and I really try, but I deeply love travelling and seeing all the small towns/tourist attractions etc.

-Alternately, flying is so terrifying to me that I don't think I'd hesitate to skydive, just so I could get out of the plane!

-When I was younger, I was incredibly injury prone. I broke my leg, broke my ankle, tore ligements in my ankle, dislocated my kneecap and needed a fairly serious knee operation. All on my left leg. And all playing basketball, which should be considerably more harmless then that!!

-I have a master's degee is history, but don't use it at all.

-I'm gonna steal one from beachbunny, I too sampled several illicit substances when I was younger and don't regret it a bit.

-I hate talking on the phone, but have a job that requires a ton of time on the phone.

-I don't like where I live and want to move, but I don't know where to go. So I routinely make excuses about money or the standard of living or not having a job there, so that I can not take the chance of moving.

-The only class I ever failed was a college course in fencing.

-I read constantly and always have. I'm usually reading 3-5 books at any one time. I prolly own 500 books or so and go to the library weekly.



I think thats good for now.

- I hate drinking through a straw.

- I'm a pretty severely claustrophobic (again, not a secret but not everyone probably knows that)

- I'm ridiculously allergic to wool

- I once drove my mother to the hospital when I was 12, on the highway. VERY fast.

- I've seen a dead human. (the flies and the smell will never leave my memory)

- I still have my wisdom teeth, and my appendix

- I (like beachbnny and kingsnorkie) did my share of substances.

- I can roll my eyes independently of one another.

- I was a licensed barber, worked at it for 7 years.

- I secretly have a soft spot for very cheesy 70's disco music.



I could go on but that's probably enough.

  • I was in a coma for a week after hitting my head on the concrete driveway one of those times.

  • I'm a drummer who hates drum solos (well, most of them).

-When alone in bed, I love to sleep either diagonally across the bed or on my side at a 90 degree angle with my legs out in front of me. I also try to do this with the boy in the bed, which means my legs are on top of him a lot.



-Along with Isabelle, I have never done any "illicit substances" before. But some seem to think I have. Once I was asked if I had composed a piece of writing while on acid (which appeared to be a compliment). No, that's just me, people!



-Two toes on my left foot are fused together. Not all of the way, but enough so that I could never wear those annoying 'toe socks'. And apparently, it's not all that uncommon.



-And I am also 'kinky'. And I have a large naughty drawer with a lot of things that could scare a few people.



-My eyes are very dark brown but there are tiny, tiny flecks of gold 'glitter' in them when viewed under a magnifying lense.



-I'm obsessed with lotion and lip gloss (and all other primping materials). If you visit my house, there's [at least] one tube of lip gloss and probably a small bottle of lotion in every room. I'm like a kid in a candy store in places like Sephora or The Body Shop.

- Like some other posters, I have done my fair share of substances.

- I sing really loud, (and actually try to sound good) when I am driving alone in my car... I sound terrible though, and I know it

- When I was 19, my boyfriend was hit by a car and killed.

- I can lucid dream

- My husband & I call each other "Stinker" and "Monkey" (and every possible version of those - Stinky, Stinkbutt, MonkeyLove, MonkeyButt, etc)

- I am in University, going for my B.Ed

- I am nearsighted in one eye, far sighted in the other

- I am INSANELY PASSIONATE about music! It really effects me on a very deep level. Whenever my life feels unhappy, I realize it's because I have been neglecting my music collection.

- I can read spanish fluently, but for some reason, It takes me A LOT of effort to speak it or write it. (Strange, eh?? Some defect in brain wiring)

- I like doing charcoal drawings, even though I'm not very good.

- I drink 3-5L of water per day, every day!!

- I've lost 90lbs in the past 14 months. (intentionally, Im not sick!)

- I love photographing my cat

- I live on a beautiful island off the coast of BC, and I wake up every day knowing that I live in the one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

- I am allergic to quick temperature change! If I go from a really cold room into a warm room, or warm to cold, if Im hot and I jump in a cold pool, come into a warm house from the snow, etc etc.. I break out in hives!



OK - Enough about me!! Sorry, I guess I got really into it!

-Even though I'm only 18, me and my girlfriend will be celebrating our 4th Anniversary soon. When people ask how long we've been together, sometimes I refuse to tell them I think I'm well weird.

-I love zombie films but I'm so terrified of zombies that I hate walking from my car to my door in the dark alone, I yell "hello" to my dad and wait for a response before going in the house if I can hear him in there (zombies can't talk) and I was scared watching Shaun of the Dead.

-I am more geeky than ALL my friends, and less geeky than ALL my coworkers. So I get confused about my geek-ness.

-I have wanted a tattoo "as soon as I turned 18" since I was 12. It has been over 6 months since I turned 18, and I haven't got one yet.

- I find it extremely hard to fall asleep on my back. So I always sleep on my side.



- I caught a pickpocket once. He was a kid, around 10 - and he was picking my dad's pocket in a crowded mall.



- I have moderate hearing loss. =S My ENT told me to stop listening to music via headphones, so I've sworn off them since.



- I've been in 2 car accidents.



- Like Isabelle and Hang~Ten~Honey, I've never done drugs.



- I tan easily and I hate it.



- I'm often mistaken for being Korean.



- I had a short stint in Starbucks during my last year as a university student. I hate coffee, but I just wanted to try being a barista for kicks.

I love soul music like the Temptations.

I have been in one car accident. We were going 90 mph around a curve..broke both axels...and was in the back seat and with no seat belt and escaped with only a scratch and 6 stiches. Amazing.

My hair was blonde for years..It's turning brown now but I keep dying it blonde to cover it up.

I am the definition of "Such a Blonde".

I have a split uvula.

I plan to do everything in my power to live to 100..just to see how the world has changed.

I have never broke any bones or had a cavity.

I am legally blind. Everthing after six inches or so from my face is blurry.

I still watch cartoons..like Sponge Bob Square Pants..alot alot. LOL.

I was put in foster care when I was 9.

I think so outside the box in so many ways I have invented my own box.

I am scared s***less of worms. Even writing the word made me shiver.

There are many more..but I'll stop there.
