I don't really have time for tv. I'm old. I love reading. Every hour spent watching tv is one less hour to do something I love. Not really about shame.

tpbm thinks cheese with ginger or dried apricots is an offense to god and man and a sign of too much foodie.

If you're talking about being on a cheese plate together I'm fine with it (depending on the cheese used, of course)
Inside the cheese? Foul, repugnant, and stupid.




tpbm feels the same about bacon being added to everything because: trendy

there aren't many cheeses I don't like, and bacon is yummy but I'll take it plain.

Nope. Dropped out after a semester due to boredom, and have taught myself everything I've wanted to know.

Yes, thats me. I was bored with high school, got a GED, and joined the Air Force, retiring after 26 years.

I have been a substitute teacher going on 9 years now. I teach pre-k to 8th grades and will teach high school band only. (my kid is a fellow band geek) I love teaching and the kids love me, but that's not what I'm going to college for. Too much politics in teaching these days.

TPBM was a 'good kid' in school

About 20 years ago we went to Atlanta for a vacation. Went to the Coke "factory" but I really liked Stone Mountain. Columbus is nice too.

TPBM got news recently that they will be getting a pay increase this year :D

Yup. I was the guy who got stuck dispensing goldfish in bags to kids who threw ping pong balls into floating cups.

It looks great on a resume. (Go with it)

The person below me wants to pretend they are a floating cup in an olympic-sized pool. :mrgreen:
