I am a person who has probably the most weird metabolism ever. There are tons of sweets which I could eat without gaining weight, but as soon as I eat some healthy stuff I gain weight. (but nevertheless, I've managed to lose 15 kilos xD):sly:

My cat, Hotspur, gets fascinated when I flush the toilet for him, and he's almost learned to do it himself.  He presses the handle down enough to make the water trickle.  One of these days, he'll realize he needs to push just a little harder.  :laugh:

I have three kitties!  :NOwhy: didn't start out that way... I have a brother/sister and then one that was a stray that wouldn't go away and we finally caved in... they pretty much think I'm the cat sofa/bed, they try and sit where they please and I do mean where THEY please... back in April my mom adopted a dog and I puppy sit him during the day... which can make for a very entertaining day.

hihi
compared to my last cat it's all rather innocent!
my last kitty, liked to steal cigarettes! yep, my mom usually makes the ciggis herself and just puts them in a glass on the table in the living room and one night we noticed our cat jumping up the table nicking a cig and runaway with it in her mouth, she wouldn't eat them or something just to play around with them we tried to unlearn her that, but it never really worked, every morning the whole floor would be full with cigs the cat got out of the holder during the night, we even got pic's of her nicking one!  :- lols

Too many things to do... :tired::wopedo:

I’m hesitating on whether I design and made my own made-to-measure library&desk or I just buy these items since it’ll take me a lot of time to do it.  Plus, I need to redo too some new interior design  after just finishing to put new floor into the desk room.

I just took some books put on the floor into the dustbin local of the building. :shy:  But hey!  They were new (!!) and some of them were about J.Lennon.  I couldn’t resist neither understand why people would just throw out books - in particularly these ones!

Current fact about myself...

I have been snowed in for 4 nearly 5 days and I think I am starting to go a bit loopy  :screaming:  :nervous:  :oooh:  :KEZZA:

I am also running out of food  :xmasruined:

Poor Mousie!  I hope it stops snowing and melts soon! 

My brother just returned from active duty in Iraq this week!  He surprised my family by saying he wanted Skype with us; so I go to my room, grab my laptop, then I  go to the den with my mom, dad, and Dave (my older brother).  As soon as I get it set up, Dave calls Chris on his phone, then 3 seconds later Chris walks into the room!!!  We are all so happy!  :reindeerdance: 


Another note:  I *despise* finals week.

That semi fluid kraft thing the sell in spray cans that smells like cheese but isn't real cheese?
You're right that stuff is rather icky it's full of fat and chemicals it's as far from actual cheese as a steak!


Title: Re: State a fact about yourself
Post by: AlisVolatPropriis on December 06, 2010, 12:01:47 pm
Current fact:
I *despise* when it snows here because people freak out and school is canceled over a light dusting, which always seems to happen when I've stayed up the night before baking cookies or cupcakes for my daughter's preschool.
Last year there was a storm here which the weather guy classified as a Blizzard, where I grew up it would've been classified a regular snow storm and schools would still be open.


Title: Re: State a fact about yourself
Post by: mousiekins on December 06, 2010, 01:28:20 pm
There is always an overreaction

With schools ( I work in one ) it's about health and safety and the fear of a child getting hurt. There is also the dilemma of teachers travelling in from various parts.

Although it really is bad here there is a truck parked across the road which I cannot see because the snow comes to above it and if I open my door I will be buried in snow because it comes to 3/4 up the door.


Title: Re: State a fact about yourself

I most certainly went through a phase in my life where I did some "wild" things, but it was never my lifestyle and I grew up! I'm not perfect and I don't expect William or Kate to be perfect either. :angel: However, I am disappointed they have not strived to set a better example for young people, by keeping their "shenanigans" in check and behind closed doors. In their quest to be seen as down to earth, they've lost the common sense they should have with others of high social stature, imo. To me, the young royals have simply become commoners and I've lost interest in their lives. :chill: ...

I usually do a Christmas Brunch at my house for the immediate family, then dinner at the grandparents, but my mother insisted she do the brunch, beginning last year.

A few facts~
I have a 1 year old Yorkie that my son refers to as my purse dog. We're planning an upcoming family vacation and while the adults were discussing today I overheard my daughter talking to the dog saying~ "If our plane crashes, don't worry, I won't let anyone eat you!"  :-    ...  Out of the mouths of babes! Sometimes I wonder where she comes up with some of the things she says!? lol

Sorry for the double post, but I live in "The Snow Belt" of NYS and I'm snowed in. :winter: Our area gets reported on the national news and those of us in the arctic are commonly referred to as "winter warriors" for battling the elements. Most of the time we go on, business as usual, unlike NYC. ...

No plow has gone down my road since earlier today and another vehicle got stuck in the road, trying to drive down it, and needed to be dug out from in the middle of the road! Now I'm probably going to have plows going up and down my road in the middle of the night!  :Kate:

Wow Fernanda, she's got some huge muscles! When I was into weight lifting/training with a fitness trainer I ended up with no curves and very muscular legs. I'm a jogger/runner and soccer player, currently on hiatus and out of shape, but I've always had muscular legs. However, the fitness trainer morphed me into a machine. Yet this ladies legs (and biceps) are some huge muscles!

Hello my angels! Well I just wanted to say I feel very, very, very scared! I have a litmus test within days, and I know I'm not in full use of my cognitive abilities in order to win this!! In fact, last year due to overwork, sorry I a nervous breakdown, which luckily was not of those who made me unable ... the only thing I did was take me to utter frustration .. they had everything ready for this year finishes up my Masters degree and be eligible for a PhD ....
 Now in addition to struggling to make a discipline that is my horror I find myself doing a therapy (psychoanalysis) and I am actually a little scared of what I find ...

 And to make matters worse when I look at when I was at the peak of my career, despite all the awards I have received (ok I know that there were only 2) I never felt completely happy ...

 I'm starting to think I'm never going to be happy, and I've never been happier I'll never make another person be happy! This means I can be alone the rest of my life (which is my biggest fear !!!!)

 Sorry but already had enough ..... I feel I have so much pressure on me, and I'll fail and I'm so afraid of that.

Byechoc -  :there:  Unfortunately, I understand all too well.  A lot of things came to a head during the holidays and my stress level went through the roof.  Am on my way to my grief counselor this morning.  There are some days that I just don't think I can make it.  Then, some good ones, but lately?  OY!

Within one year, I lost my husband, my home, my job, my circle of friends from work who were supportive (natural dispersion), and have a 92-year old mother from he## to take care of who's got two forms of cancer but there is no end in sight.  It's a horrible thing to actually despise your own mother, but trust me, I'm not alone in the family on that score, but it's all on my shoulders.  Daughter's job and all that nonsense.  I don't have much left in the tank and I know it, so I hug you and send massive amounts of hope your way that things will improve.  They will, kiddo.  They HAVE to.   :sorry: :sorry: :sorry:

And thank you for the kind thoughts about my mother who can just evaporate any time now, please.  Elder Care is at the top of the Stress List.  I checked.  Then death.  Then loss of job.  Then divorce.  It's a miracle I'm not in a strait-jacket.   :runforhills:

Byechoc: Sometimes it's scary to realize what's lurking in the depths and unconscious of the human mind! It was scary for me at first too, however, it will become enlightening after awhile. In 2004, I first enrolled in graduate school with the goal of becoming a play therapist (a form of psychotherapy, but I withdrew before finishing the program, as life got in the way). I believe psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are some of the best forms in keeping a healthy mind. We all need "tune ups" once in awhile when life gets overwhelming and too much for any one person to face alone. Stick with it and you will come out the otherside stronger, having experienced much personal growth. ...

I send you good thoughts and intellectual power to make it through your upcoming test(s). You are very intelligent and you will pull through this!  :me2you:

In October, I finished my capstone project for a master's degree in business management. I agonized and stressed over it, but when it came right down to the end, I did a "rise to the occasion" job, overcoming the stress, as you will too!

Think of the accomplishment it will be to have gotten through this tough time!  :stars: Better days are ahead!

Yoopers: I wish you the best in dealing with your mother & her situation. It's never easy to care for a loved one as they deteriorate, especially when they insist on making life a living hell for those taking care of them! :me2you:

My thoughts and prayers are with you both!  kisss

One day I hope you all have the lives you want - just like I do.
I said this to my hubby one night, it was late and the boys were just getting home from wherever they'd been and I said, 'The best part of the day is when everyone is tucked up safely in their beds. I know they're home safe and sound'.
I hope you all stay safe and sound with your lives too.

My clothing is still Gothic like but more rock chick then Victorian nowadays

I love it when people dare to be different! I like the look of corsets myself, but I've never worn a hoop skirt. ...

 :thankyou:  Scarlet Flowers, having tri-colored hair wasn't so fantastic as a child, so I've been getting my hair specially treated to cover the white/platinum blonde, since I was a teenager. It doesn't hold onto hair color very well. Maybe someday I'll be daring enough to let it show through again!

Actually yes I have  :P

I am similar to you in a love gothic and rock. Not to mention Steam Punk (again corsets, why do I torture myself by not being able to breath). I never dyed my hair black but I have not been blonde since my teens and have been more of a brunette although I did have purple streaks for a while.  :KEZZA:

Obviously I do not wear my corsets, metal band t-shirts, dog collars and metal studs to school as I may traumatise my little 5 years old. I also think the headteacher would get a heart attack as she is very conservative.

I tried toto have the the body of this woman ,then I thought I was a giant biceps had more of my boyfriend , now I 'mback to normal  :spy:

Wow Fernanda, she's got some huge muscles! When I was into weight lifting/training with a fitness trainer I ended up with no curves and very muscular legs. I'm a jogger/runner and soccer player, currently on hiatus and out of shape, but I've always had muscular legs. However, the fitness trainer morphed me into a machine. Yet this ladies legs (and biceps) are some huge muscles!

Here in Brazil the concept of beauty is a little different. No wonder the extremely thin women, it is as if these women lacked health in accordance with the concept of Brazilians. You walk some beaches of Rio de Janeiro and finds women with the body so much muscle and little fat, but they are certain is that you look at them and can not predict how old these women really have, women have 40 years that you would not believe .... No way, the law of gravity is relentless. Add to it a slower metabolism, and we have problems. That's why after 30 years the woman begins to see a back fat in your body here and there, that did not exist before.  According to the book "Perfect Measures," at age 30 the metabolic rate begins to fall about 1% each year, making the weight loss. To speed up the metabolism efficiently, you must eat regularly during the day, doing exercises to build muscle and eat protein, fiber, calcium and seasonings. The importance of weight training to prevent loss of lean body mass and speeding up metabolism, with special attention to exercises that work the chest. It's not just aesthetics. When we talk about it all, we're also talking about health, what is even more important. You have to try to get as much muscle mass before thirty years because then you'll start to lose that weight and your metabolism slows down. As these women have a very heavy muscle workout you do not realize both the time difference in them, you almost do not notice anything different on account of the muscles, and many of them already had children. The idea in Brazil is that the more muscle you have the faster the metabolism and consequently less fat you have. If you have the idea that beauty means being skeletal, not here, because often a very thin woman has a much higher percentage of fat than a woman worked. Brazilians mostly consider that a skeletal woman passes the message of disease, already a well-kept woman and muscle tone is a health message. That's very cultural, I do not know .... I saw a person in Italy still suffered immeasurably thin and because she wanted to lose weight, here are some girls who may be so, but is rare because the media always pumping with healthy bodies...

Maybe I should move to Brazil! I've never been stick thin and do not find such attractive. I like my curves and some muscles! I think my metabolism's been slow my whole entire life and I eat 4-6 small "meals" a day, most days to keep my metabolism going. I understand what you are saying and I think the picture of the woman you posted in this most recent post seems more womanly than the other. Personally, I prefer to have the curves and softness of a goddess body figure, but the men around here seem to prefer the stick figures!

Kate, a goddess?!  :sly: She's too unshapely so I don't know what those fashion designers are talking about!

I still don't know if what i did was right,he was very old,without teeth and blind.Somehow i wish to know if what i did was the correct thing because as any animal when they are sick they don't tell us until they can't resist the pain.

 :sorry: For both of you: Mia and Raisie  :(     My Yorkie is like my child and I cannot even think about losing a loved one right now (animals included)! I had a Scottish Terrier mix growing up and one of the hardest things to do was put him to sleep, as he was very old & suffering. I tried to look at it like we were easing his suffering and I believe animals have souls too! I don't know if you two are religious or spiritual but when my children's Black Lab died a few years ago, my daughter found consolation in a book that even I, as an adult have found comfort in:

http://www.amazon.com/All-Gods-Creatures-Go-Heaven/dp/0965253104#reader_0965253104

All Dogs Go To Heaven   :flower:

All dogs go to heaven, this surely must be.
For they’re not as selfish as you or me.
They don’t hold a grudge, but are loyal and true.
Forgiving us mortals for all that we do.
Somehow I feel my dog I’ll meet.
Romping someday on Heaven’s street.
For if love counts and if God is fair,
Our faithful dogs will all be there.

I am in complete shock!
I must say that I had as a model husband, a person who for more than 29 years has made his wife the happiest on the planet ... who did not want a husband like this? Together they built a huge empire ... their house was like being in a fairy tail, I never saw such house, Never in the celebrity magazines, from the great houses of the magnates to those of great artists, anyone had the beauty that had... They have two wonderful children who always were the best in everything and studied at major universities not just degree but pos graduates...

He said today that he wanted to live his life, that he never lived until now (they made 4 vacations along the year, 1 for the carabeans, one to the slopes, one to Africa and they always went to NYC) ... now at 57, and the worst is that this happened one day to another ... without anyone ever suspicions if there is anyone .... But he say that he does not have anyone? 

How is it possible this happens .... with this I begin to wonder what really is the marriage ...

I've been married forEVER, I was very young, so after 26 years of marriage, if my hubby turned around and said he wanted to leave me, I'd say, AND YOU CAN KEEP GOING.
But he won't, no-one else would have him.
And he loves me too much and I love him too much and now everybody say awwwwww.

I found out yesterday that a woman I went to highschool with committed suicide a few days ago. We weren't friends per se and I hadn't seen her in a few years, but I knew her well enough to know she was genuinely a sweet, caring, gentle, & vibrant person, with a good career and living an upstanding life. Her suicide makes no sense to anyone, even those that knew her better than myself!  :cry:

Yeah, it's awful! Just tragic. ... She had gotten a better job in a neighboring community, went in her own direction, and was engaged to be married. And she had a very stable, happy upbringing. ... The impression she gave people was that all was great with her and heading in the direction she wanted. She was a beautiful person inside and out, but obviously suffering silently. :bye:

With that out the way, fact about myself, I can eat sweets, chocolates, ice cream junk food and not gain an ounce of weight, which angers my female colleagues who keep ranting "if I just look at a chocolate I get fat", well thanks to high metabolism I will always stay "slim", never had to go to the gym or exercise in my entire life, another fact I am way too straightforward which sometimes gets me into a lot of trouble, you know the kind that speaks before thinking lol lol

I can stand on the top tier of a water-skiing pyramid (in Wisconsin, USA).  If I've already said this, kill me.  But, it was quite an endurance test.  And I didn't fall of or nothin'.  I can also thread a water-skiing group of 6 and not fall.

I can also stretch my hands to an octave and a half on a piano and still play without annoying people - hopefully.

Let's see....I won many, many, many Twisting contests.  No one has beat me yet.

Every dog I ever met likes me.

I can body surf with a short board and, well, a boogie and my own body.  Seriously, this is a lame addition.  Well, maybe not.  My children stand at the shore and scream.  They're terrified of the ocean, tho.  Wussies.

I can knit, crochet, and embroider.

The best rose grower in my section of California.  Yessss!

Make the best beef and chicken gravy - ever.  AND potatoes.  I have a secret for the world's best mashed potatoes.

Can decorate a cake by making roses and using buttercream perfectly.  Not so good with the other fancy stuff like fondant.  But if you want a white/chocolate cake with awesome roses?  Call me.

I always win at marbles.

NEVER had a traffic violation (knock, knock).  In FACT, I was stopped for speeding.  I was 10 miles over the speed limit and I said, "PLEASE don't spoil my perfect record!"  He didn't.

Great snorkeler.  No biggie, but it takes some talent to know how to dive down a lot and still breathe, I suppose.  You see some amazing things that way.

I can sail my own skim.  That's a single-person sailboat.  Never did the big stuff.

I can swamp a canoe alone and survive for three days in water/on land and build a fire anywhere, anytime and for any reason.

I play:  tennis, archery, can ride a horse (yecch), canoe (and swamp it and survive), pitch a tent and live for 10 days, golf (bore), and shoot a .21 the eye out of a needle.  I have won more sharp shooting badges than any woman in Wisconsin for year 1975.

That's about it.  OH, I can dance anything.

Not much.  But something.

yooper!  :o you can sail, that is so cool!
hmm lemme see,  :think:
I speak four languages (Dutch,German,English&French)
I'm good at history (top of my class) and geography (give me a map and compass and I'll find my way home no biggy)
I'm good with most animals (except for spiders, *despise* those creeps!)
I'm good with ppl (I'm not too shy to ask a stranger for directions, or to chat up a good looking fella! lol)
I'm a very calm person, it takes a lot to anger me. (but once I'm p*ssed.... Run! Run far, Run fast! Because  :bat:)
I smoke  :hide: (I know, I know, I'm trying to quit)
I like to think of my self as independent I make my own living and I can cook, clean, iron, fix a broken lamp, paint or paper the walls, repair a stuffed sink and mow the lawn (who needs a man anyway! :tehe:)
I'm hopeless with paperwork and redtape (I'm just to messy with that stuff (which reminds me I still have to fill in my taxes!  :wopedo:)

That all I can think of for now

 ^^ lol Yes Y. me too! many years of yearning to figure out what the paper on the given authority figure's desk or in hand said. After awhile ( like by the end of elementary school), nothing was getting by me without my knowing exactly what was going on! I wasn't going to settle for doing as I was told without knowing the complete picture even though I wasn't being told things in their entirety! No one keeps me in the dark if I can help it!  kisss

I speak 3 languages.  Total lie.  I speak 1 perfectly and two sort of.  French and Finnish.  I can tell you how to sweep your floor in Finnish and French, well, nobody ever gets French right enough but I get it enough that they treat me with no contempt.  And I can fix anything, too, because of my first a$$hole husband, but would be delighted to show someone else where the blow torch was for the frozen pipes.

Me?  Sailing?  I said I could sail a skim.  Although I know what all the parts of a real sailboat are and my dad and I messed with all the parts, so if we were stuck out in the ocean, I could get it, but mostly I know how to keep things clean.

QUIT SMOKING!!!!!  I'm only being brassy about that because I've lost too many people to it, ok?  Hey, I used to be an addict.  I understand, but dump it.  It's bad sh#t.

 :AWW: I love you too Y. :loveshower: However, I'm interested in men & believe my meant to be intimate partner is a MAN and that's my fact! If only we'd cross pathes, sooner rather than later. :flirt: ...

:AWW: I wooove you twoo honey!  :BFF:
Next time I go on a holiday I'm soo gonna pass by San Diego!  ;) (hmm a 10 day trip to California, why not :think:..gotta check those prices!)
I'm a Sagittarius BTW (I don't know if that mixes well with a Virgo  :dontknow:)
I'm interested in alternative stuff like herb lore, Wicca and runes but somehow astrology is too much detail for me (all those calculations :smashed:)
And yes mum, I'll try to quit and be good  :hide:

You wanna make a fortune, Akasha?  California's your place.

Just set up a table with all your wicca, herb, and anything 'alternative' stuff and you're a HIT!

Go to Garnet Street, turn right, hit the beach, have a table and you'll make money.  I PROMISE!

OR, come live with me while you get your act together.  A bathroom and kitchen are helpful.  Where I live is total surf world so you're lost here.  All we do is surf here.  SERIOUS surfing, however, not just a half mile south?  TOURISTS.

Do me a favor.  Look up Windansea.   Then look up Mission and Pacific Beach.  Two different dealios.

But, I'm gone a lot so who know???? I'd love to see your art!!!!!  Then there's the La Jolla Opem Aire Market.  Gold Mine, sweetie.

Thanks honey I'll think about it!  :tehe: hmm now where did I put that crystal ball and my tarot cards again? :think: lol
Oh guess I'll have to learn how to surf then, huh? You don't happen to know a nice teacher?  :whistle:  ;) ;)
yeah ok I'll check out Windansea and the others.
You really love socal don't ya!  :sigh: mind you, I don't blame ya! Sounds like a nice place to live.


Title: Re: State a fact about yourself

Windansea?  Wouldn't live anywhere else.  Ever.  If I can help it.  I've taken on some hateful jobs just to live here.

However, it's worth it.  Imagine waking up to crashing waves, coffee (never touch it myself) and a patio to eat your oatmeal with fresh blueberries and tea.  Then go to work.

Now that we have the solstice, the sun doesn't go down until 8 or maybe near 9.  December?  Enjoy the palm tree lights.

No, it's not the perfect place, but I'll be darned if I can find anything to discourage you. 

1.  336 days of sunshine
2.  NO bugs (on the coast where I live)
3.  NO snow unless you want it, then there's Big Bear and Mammoth Mtn.
4.  Amazing museums, outdoor activities (a super learn-to-surf-wave) thing in Mission Beach
5.  The best people in the world.  I'm serious about this.  The most laid-back and go-to people ever,
6.  Are ya a fancy lady?  Home Shoppers.  Free.
7.  Hair/Nails/Massages - Unsurpassed anywhere
8.  Employment - higher than average.  The industries are:  bio med, medical (anything in medical), fundraising, tourism.
9.  Exercise - you can't be fat.  And, by fat, I mean over-fat.  It's just not gonna happen for you here.  Too many FREE people who will walk, eat, YMCA, swim, whatever.  You're gonna be healthy here.  I am and and I'm not a healthy person.

I will say this:  When I arrived in SoCal, I was a pretty physical mess.  Well, I was.  Now?  I'm a lean machine.  Well, almost.  No normal person can keep up with these people and the standards by the medical community are high.  So, I suggest before coming to California, get your body in better shape or you're gonna get IT.

I did.

When I arrived in CA I was 15 lbs overweight.  I honestly was.  But, that wasn't their problem.  My cholesterol!!!!!!  My hormones!!!!!!!!!!  My overall body fat!!!!!!!!!

That was 5 years ago.  I hated them at the time.  I really did.  Now?  I'm 22 pounds lighter, I exercise 4 days a week, which is mostly swimming laps, and my cholesteral?  140.   Brutal, but right.

Y'know what they don't know?  I swim every day in the ocean, sideways.  Well, almost every day.  My thighs will testify.  No machine does what the water does, but they don't buy into it.  They're wrong.

yooper: hmm tourism is a main branch you say?
I did study that as a mayor in highschool....I really have to check out socal out I guess. :think: god it sounds so tempting! :sigh: (I'm so tired of Belgium. How much does a green card cost again?)
How are the real estate and/or renting prices over there?
As far as body fitness goes well.... :shy: I'm a bit lazy 'bout sport.
But with my 5f I weigh only 108lbs so I guess that's fine, no? I have no idea about my cholesterol, hormones or body fat index  :dontknow:
And I really have to quit smoking huh, in your healthy neighbourhood I'd get crucified I think! :KEZZA:

contessa: I've been doing that for the last two day's :P I love the fact that I don't have to work for four day's straight!  :spooky:

I love dressing in 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s style clothes esp ankle and mid calve length dresses. I design my own capes, dresses, clothes. ... I also wear modern fare. But my all time favourite is thevelvet cape with matching gloves! :thumbsup: 1930s style hats are the best!

^They truly are.  I love hats and would love to see them make a comeback.  They just truly finish and polish an outfit, if done right.  If I could, I'd burn every fascinator on the planet. 

A fact about myself.  Let's see.  I'm a licensed Lifeguard.  And I use my late husband's ice hockey referee whistle (if you don't know what that is, it's ear-splitting).  No running at my pool!   :tehe:

^ I'll strike the match. :tehe: Gosh, I simply *despise* those stupid fascinators and no, they are not real hats.  :snob: They look like someone just walked up to a woman and slapped something on the side of her head. Utterly ridiculous.  :o
