    Thanks! I'll try to do that. Yeah I have a really good imagination which can sometimes be a problem. When I was still living at home after college, my little brother would sometimes sleep on the floor in my room and I would tell a humorous story about a little kid and his uncle. I would simultaneously record them to listen to later. By the time I moved out we had 106 hour-long stories I'd told!! :eek::D

    Apparently in the Catholic church it's not even possible to get married if you're unable to have intercourse... Or you will have to get it annulled retroactively. Never knew that before. :scratch: I don't belong to the the Catholic church, but I just found that interesting.

    I was told by one girl that looking directly into the face of a man (which is often the case with me) is just weird and she hates it. That kind of discouraged me for a bit, but I got over it.

    That’s neat. Do you plan to record them?

    Yes, it has to be consummated. Bur there are many ways to address that in situations like his.

    Well, I've copied most to mp3 for now. Originally they were on cassette tapes just because it was convenient and our dad was throwing out his old 80's music. ^_^ I'm working on typing them up, too, since my brother and I practically speak our own language and we're the only ones who understand what we're saying half the time.

    I'm not even joking. We'll be talking to each other and our parents have no idea what we're saying. It's kind of like we developed our own dialect somehow. :scratch: I try not to do it at work, but it's slips out once in awhile!

    People, by and large, have always tended to draw the wrong conclusions about me. At one point I would protest their false assumptions, but I just don't bother anymore.

    At one time, I cared way too much what other people thought of me. I grew indifferent to it. I'll concede that I am, personally, more than a little odd. However, this doesn't say anything about my character as a person.

    Yeah I’m 29 and I’ve only had one ex boyfriend for a couple of months and my mom was asking if I was really just gay or something by the time I was 28. It sucks.

    It's just interesting how things change... In the past a girl who wasn't married by her late twenties might have been considered an "old maid" if anything. Now, people wonder if you're gay... It's pretty sad.
