RE: Amanda

Yup.

Perhaps the drama queens are the ones who want to see her as evil in every which way possible. It makes for an exciting and dangerous story...at a safe physical and emotional distance.

Never mind what damage it's done and continues to do to her.

It was always an emotional story, the investigation built on salacious ideas and prejudice, rather than practical, accurate evidence.

And let's face it, if the US legal system has protected her, the Italian legal system must be below gutter level.

RE: This has to do with car-pooling/ride-sharing

I imagine people are wary of giving a lift to a stranger.

Perhaps they wonder why work colleagues are not willing to give him a lift.

Offers of generous remuneration may fuel suspicions of desperation, or ill-intent.

Whatever, you can't control the situation. You can't make anyone give him a lift and you can't make him be proactive about getting a lift.

If it bothers you, perhaps reflect on that.

RE: When Was The Last Time?

I've got to the age where I run through the entire list of grandchildren's names before I hit on the right one, so I've given up being embarrassed about it. laugh

When was the last time you found the perfect gift for someone?

RE: Word association game

Doughnut.

(Having spelled that correctly, I don't feel I've lowered the tone as much as I could have.)

RE: What are you doing to celebrate Independence Day From Great Britain this 4th of July?

I think that film clip lacks authenticity.

"Jesus Christ!" sounds all wrong coming out of Tom Jones' mouth.

The line should have been, "Christ alive!"

giggle

RE: When Was The Last Time?

About five years ago. I miss him and my other three rescue mutts dearly, but the time isn't right for another furry friend yet.

When was the last time you sang a National Anthem and what was it?

RE: What are you doing to celebrate Independence Day From Great Britain this 4th of July?

I've had enough of listening to you two going on about who started it!

America? Britain?

Go to your rooms and I don't want to hear another peep out of either of you! rollers

RE: What are you doing to celebrate Independence Day From Great Britain this 4th of July?

Probably shed a tear for my first dog who died on 4th July at 12 noon, 15 years ago.

Unlike yourselves, I didn't want my independence and the more taxing he was, the fonder I became of him. laugh

RE: Do men require a partner in life more so than women?

I live in a very different country and culture than yourself, Mikey.

RE: Do men require a partner in life more so than women?

If the comparison is widowers versus single women, it could be grief which is causal, not living alone per se.

The reasons behind being single may have more impact than gender in terms of perceived loneliness.

RE: When Was The Last Time?

When I was a student. People tend to hire rooms for parties round here because they're cheap and peanuts don't get trodden into the carpet.

When was the last time you ate something you'd never had before? What was it and did you survive the experience? laugh

RE: When Was The Last Time?

Welcome to the forums, Joseph. wave

And you're not too slow, Catchup. These games always get into a pickle and that's half the fun of it. laugh

RE: When Was The Last Time?

So, first you ask when you'll cop off, and now you ask when you'll cop on.

My crystal ball has just crashed. laugh

RE: When Was The Last Time?

I think you missed the format of the game, Michael, but I'll have a check of my crystal ball and see if anything clears from the mists, just in case. laugh

RE: When Was The Last Time?

I'm living in 1 1/2 rooms with a makeshift kitchen at the moment, waiting for work to be finished on an attic flat. My workshop is packed up in boxes and I'm frothing at the mouth with my creativity thwarted. laugh

When was the last time you were asked a question which assumed your lifestyle was the same as the questioner's? (I've painted more rooms than you can shake a stick at. laugh )

RE: When Was The Last Time?

By the way, thankyou for this thread, Sethan. wave

RE: When Was The Last Time?

Ah, no mean feat M4. tip hat

I'm lucky to have a small handful of people around me who share and listen, but it tends to be in bits and pieces regularly, rather than heart to heart sessions.

When was the last time you painted a room and what colour was it? Did you get the effect you wanted?

RE: When Was The Last Time?

Oh golly, not for years. I prefer walking up mountains in the rain.

When was the last time you conquered a challenge, or achieved a goal?

RE: When Was The Last Time?

Last week when I had a chest infection. laugh

When was the last time you went to the cinema, or theatre and what did you see?

RE: When Was The Last Time?

It depends upon what you mean by sports, or art. laugh

My granddaughter's Christmas show springs to mind and it was certainly avant-garde. I took umbridge at the depiction of grandmas in the baby shark song (no teeth) and commented afterwards that it wasn't very focussed on the nativity. My granddaughter retorted without hesitation, "It was our Christmas show and we can do what we like."

That told me. laugh

When was the last time a child argued their case and proved you wrong?

RE: When Was The Last Time?

The first time I wished upon a star was about 30 seconds ago and I wished to get to cuddle as many dogs as Jono has just blatantly bragged about.

This star business better work otherwise you're so in trouble, Jo. scold giggle

When was the last time you teased someone?

RE: When Was The Last Time?

After 10 days avoiding passing on a virus, I've just seen my daughter working at my local Co-op. I didn't know she was working tonight, was surprised to see her and had a wee flood of emotions. laugh

When was the last time you cuddled a dog?

RE: The Princess Syndrome, or The Curse of Being Beautiful.

Yeah, I make whopping great grammatical errors at times.

It's a part of my authentic experience and identity. I hold the funny ones close to my heart and they're often associated with enriching human interaction.

RE: The Princess Syndrome, or The Curse of Being Beautiful.

And yet it is you who devotes so much time to throwing down your gauntlet, to the exclusivity of all else. dunno
