tpbm has been on a TV show before


I once appeared on a public access show as the deranged fan of a profane hand puppet named . . . Harvey, I think. Oh, and I'm visible laughing in the audience of The Daily Show some years ago, wearing an I HEART NY tank top.

The person below me acts in community theatre.

Not since I was eighteen.

TPBM prefers classical music to dubstep.

Yes, absolutely.

TPBM can tap dance.
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Sort of. I took lessons when I was a wee lass, but only for a year. I also took ballet for 13 years as a lass, and as an adult I belly dance and fire dance.

TPBM does not like PB & J.

Not as bad as you think, but would benefit from some more aggressive seasoning. They really leave that organ taste unaltered.

I have been collecting the Bond moovies as they float through the $5 bin. He was the BEST! Daniel Craig made it so much darker, but Sean made it cheeky.

TPBM has a huge VHS collection they are stressing about because the technology is going away.

Nope, already gave in. I do have a few titles left that I plan to part with when I grab the dvd version.

TPBM thinks dvd is fine and won't be switching to blu ray.

Only if getting up to check 30 seconds before the timer dings is considered genius then yes.

TPBM has a hard time thinking of PBM things.

Never. I want the words & images to form in my brain from the authors words, free from the "dramatic interpretation" of someone else.


tpbm needs to own physical books, not just check them out from the library or have electronic copies

Yes! I love real books. I do have a kindle app and use it on occasion and I've even listened to books before, but nothing beats actually holding a book in your hand.

TPBM can tell what part of the keg their beer is from at the bar

Sure can. When the tap sputters and spits - That beer is the last or bottom of the keg. The bartender then runs back in the cooler and presumably switches kegs - That beer is the first or the top of the keg. Easy Peasy!

More than don't prefer, I actively don't like it. Only place I will drink it is on the playa, and then it's just usually to be polite.



tpbm will also consume things outside of their normal diet to be polite on-playa
