Probably from the internet. If she didn't make it up out of thin air, she probably heard about it there. And believed it, because she's gullible like that. :roll:

Not me, but I used to be able to flip my eyelids over when I was in grade school.

tpbm is also decompressing after a most amazing Lakes of Fire.

that's right: i have never been engaged. been (happily) dating the same guy for the last 7.5 years, and we even live together, and STILL waiting for him to come around on the whole marriage thing. very frustrating :(

TPBM plans to remain celibate on the Playa.

I have no one lined up, I'm not good at making that kind of connection, no one on eplaya has offered to pimp me, and I'm worried about logistics.
But planned, no.

The cake is a LIE, I prefer pi.

I don't have many dreams, period. I actually remembered one this week. I think it involved empty dresses.
TPBM interprets dreams Jungian style.

I was really into Jung when I was way too young (no, really, no pun intended, for real!) to "get" it. My parents got a "LIFE Atlas of the Body" for subscribing to a magazine (oddly not LIFE. I think it was Discover...?), and it had a chapter on psychology with a heavy focus on dreams. It gave an example of a dream and then interpreted it first Freud-style, then Jung-style. Both ways were incestuous and terrifying for me as a kid, but also kind of compelling. I wanted to understand these psychologists' theories. I read that chapter over and over, but I never really understood. There were references to Oedipus. I looked that up and became even more terrified. Around the same time, my Mum took some kind of Jungian psychology course at, like, church or something (?!) and got really into dreams and their interpretations. I remember her trying to explain to me about archetypes, and trying to fit that in with the analysis in the LIFE book...

Wait, this isn't the "awkward" thread?

TPBM is trying to decide whether to admire or resent a new acquaintance.

Nope. A little too much wine.

Slippery Fishy! With that kind of skill at avoiding questions, you must be a politician! Or a spy.... I still kinda think you're CIA, not EPA.

TPBM is worried about that slippery patch on the road today.

No. I'm not. because I don't have my power chair. And I can't drive without the ez-lock. And I'm much more worried about finding good driveways than I am about problems in the actual road, on the push chair.
TPBM has been knitting lately.

No. I don't knit. I lack the dexterity to find it anything other than stressful and exhausting.
TPBM is learning tatting.

No, but my grandmother tatted. Mom crocheted. I embroider. Thread art devolving by generation.

TPBM knits for relaxation.

My sister and niece do. I know how, but I do other stuff for expression. Maybe if I watched tv.
TPBM agrees that embroidery is not a devolved form.

Indeed, from my great aunt I never met. And a needlepoint chair from um, maybe my grandmother. I did not take notes as a child, so some of the family heirlooms have a fuzzy history. Too bad, I can't ask anyone now.

TPBM knows less about their family tree than they would like.
