    Thanks! So are you.
    I was just playing Reach, but I walked into a grenade which I don't normally do. I figured it was time to quit for the day. I'll go back and kill 'em all tomorrow.

Instead I found myself aiming at the streetlight, thinking, "oh, I'll NEVER actually hit it!" Needless to say I did not share this tidbit with the power company. I just said, "You know, there's a hole in the outside glass. Kind of looks like someone shot it!"
    Best confession yet!
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    Coworker posted on FB that she ate the whole pie at once.

    Me I would NEVER do that. Post it that is.

    A few weeks ago I got a(nother) garnish notice for someone I cant STAND. She said it was all a mistake & she needed to talk to them. Right. I made sure to set that garnish up right away & made double SURE it came out. Even asked the PR co if it was set up for sure. Well I had to, right?

    I have a Pottermore account.


    And when I got sorted into Hufflepuff, I created a new account so I could be somewhere else.

    I have a Pottermore account and I'm a Ravenclaw.

    I play Riding Club Championships.

    I'm klutzy enough that I just tripped over my backpack and suspect I broke one of my toes in the process.

    I like physics.

    I watch the movies because it's fun to see which actors are taking the bad movie seriously (I think Michael Sheen may have cornered the market on this) and which are actively attempting to sabotage/send messages for help (Robert Pattinson, who's openly admitted to hating Edward and TRYING to get fired after the first movie.) Also, the movies are somewhat better than the books. At least the first book; it's the only one I read and I'm glad I didn't pay for it myself.

    Confession: I refuse to read "Fifty Shades of Grey" not because I have any objection to BDSM but because if I wanted to read Twilight smutfic I can get thousands of them for free on Fanfiction.net. Not that I read Twilight smutfic. (I'm too busy reading alternate-universe Hunger Games fic.)

    Related confession: I love vampires as a concept, to the point of having taken a 300-level university course on the subject (no, seriously, I even requested and got one of my academic-concentration question for my MA comprehensive exams from it). I do NOT love animalistic monster vamps, and I HATE HATE HATE broody complaining teenage/twentysomething-type vampires. Needless to say finding books to read on the subject can be tricky.

    All my friends are kinda mean, not to me, but that's why I love them.

    And I love to leave a piping hot bucket with pine-sol out to make it smell like I clean everyday.

    I absolutely LOVE to wash my hardwood floors just to smell the Pine-sol.

    Lol! I love that idea...the hot bucket of pine-sol...may have to steal this one
    Also, my friends sound a lot like yours. It's why I love them! (And I'm sure if you asked them, that's why they love me too )

    Seriously? That's awesome. I can see how being told to be broody and emo yet again would be tiresome beyond belief. Not to mention the stalkerishly possessive thing!

    A can of spray polish is good to keep on hand for the same reason, a few squirts in the air and it smells like you polished...

    I have a friend who wanted to try a saddle I have for sale on her mare, I was going to drive over to her place with said saddle for the trial. She then phones out of the blue and says it's not fair me to drive to her, she will trailer over to me AGHHHH.

    I would far rather have spent 2 hours driving there and back, rather than 2 hours trying to make my house look like I hadn't bothered to clean up before she got there.

    I'm KBC, and I do not do housework
    I'm not sure if I grew out of stupid or ran out of brave.

    He called Edward a creepy messed-up stalking 108-year-old virgin, deliberately tried to play him as a mentally-unhealthy stalker in the first movie, and said Stephenie Meyer is crazy.

    Yet, they kept him. Of course, as they probably have to delivery the money the movies make by semi truck, one cannot blame them....

    I confess. I have a COTH alter. I forgot her name. She's lost.

    If you can remember which e-mail you used to register your alter I think you can plug that in somewhere and have it e-mailed to you.

    On the Robert Pattinson thing, the fact that he apparently doesn't like the character and is trying to be cheesy redeems him somewhat in my view...

    To be fair, that's the Edward character to a "T" and whoever wrote it is, in fact, crazy. Makes me like this Robert Pattinson fellow!

    I would bet they kept him so the 13 year old girl fan base didn't have a collective heart attack.

    I am also a Twilight fan. *sigh* Although when Edward was shirtless in the second one I gagged a little bit at his yuckyness and I do not find him attractive in the least. I am Team Jacob.

    I am sitting on my couch at the moment, listening to my child whine upstairs in her crib, trying to convince myself that it's naptime for her, when in reality, I'm just sick of her clinging to me.

    The dog is also on the couch with me, and that is a huge no-no, according to Mr. Minon.

    Finally, I dis-like my MIL but I can never say anything to anybody. She hates our dog, and I fear that she has no soul.

    Ha! I did the same thing. Got stuck at work for 38 hours straight and I've cut off most of my soda consumption. But I was going have some mountain dew and sugary things darn it! Stuck at work forever equals eating terrible things.

    I got put into Slytherin and when I tried to be somebody else, I STILL got sorted into Slytherin.

    I actually used the creepy Edward/dumbass Bella relationship to talk to my daughter about the dangers of controlling boyfriends and about getting too hung up on a boy at an early age.

    I buy lottery tickets and then go on the internet looking at real estate far far away from here. I like the Northeast, cold weather, moderate mountains. My daughter favors the tropics. We argue about this.
