More of the same

I "borrowed" this survey from Heather.

( ) snuck out of the house – Nah, I was too damn scared of my father to sneak out. Although when I was about 6, I think, I slept walked (how do you write the past tense of sleepwalk) out of the house and went next door to see if Lisa could come out and play. My parents discovered me as I walked back into the house (still asleep).
( ) gotten lost in your city – Probably way back when, but not recently. I believe if you just keep driving, you'll figure out where you are eventually.
(x) seen a shooting star – My paternal grandparents lived in AZ and I remember hanging out in their backyard because that area was known for them or something
(x) been to any other countries besides Canada – Mexico, British Virgin Isles, Egypt
(x) had a serious surgery – cervical diskectomy and spinal fusion
(x) gone out in public in your pajamas – I've taken the garbage out in my PJs, does that count?
(x) kissed a stranger
(x) hugged a stranger
( ) been in a fist fight – Hell no, I would lose.
( ) been arrested
(x) laughed and had milk/coke come out of your nose
( ) pushed all the buttons on an elevator – I've accidentally pushed more than the one I wanted and got really annoyed, so I wouldn't do that.
(x) swore at your parents – Oh yeah, that's one of Former Father's favorite things to use against me.
( ) been in love
(x) been close to love
(x) been to a casino – Yes, but I don't actually gamble. I do enjoy (mostly) watching my friends gamble though.
( ) been skydiving – Cliché, I know, but I will never jump out of a perfectly good airplane.
( ) skinny dipped – It's an intriguing thought, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to do it.
( ) skipped school – And risk the wrath of Former Father? Hell no! Like Heather, I don't count college.
(x) seen a therapist
( ) done the splits – I am completely inflexible (you should see me in yoga).
(x) played spin the bottle – I was at a party in college and people discovered I had never played, so we got a game going. It wasn't as decadent as I thought it would be.
(x) gotten stitches – Near my right eye when I was 3, still have the scar. And then when I chopped the tip of my finger off.
( ) drank a whole gallon of milk in one hour – I'm not sure why anybody would want to.
( ) bitten someone -
(x) been to Niagara Falls
(x) gotten the chicken pox – I'm so lucky I managed to get shingles too.
(x) kissed a member of the opposite sex
( ) kissed a member of the same sex
( ) crashed into a friend's car
( ) been to Japan
(x) ridden in a taxi – In SF, of course. In Detroit? Heck no! This is the Motor City! We don't believe in public transportation.
(x) been dumped
( ) shoplifted – Again, the threat of Former Father's wrath was enough to keep me on the straight and narrow.
( ) been fired
( ) had a crush on someone of the same sex
(x) had feelings for someone who didn't have them back – Who the hell hasn't?
(x) gone on a blind date – Unfortunately.
(x) lied to a friend
(x) had a crush on a teacher – Mr. Gavin, 9th grade Honors English – damn, he was cute.
( ) celebrated Mardi-Gras in New Orleans
( ) been to Europe
(x) slept with a co-worker
( ) been married
( ) gotten divorced
( ) had children
( ) seen someone die
(x) had a close friend die
(x) been to Africa - Egypt
(x) driven over 400 miles in one day – Just last week – twice. I'm not quite why this is an accomplishment of any sort.
(x) been to US - I live in the US!
(x) been to Mexico – I love and adore Mexico and have been twice already this year.
( ) been to India
(x) been on a plane
( ) seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show – Sadly no. When everybody I knew was going I wasn't allowed out that late. And now it's not showing anywhere. I suppose I could Netflix it.
( ) thrown up in a bar
( ) purposely set a part of myself on fire
(x) eaten sushi – vegetarian sushi, obviously
(x) been skiing/snowboarding – And hated every minute of it.
(x) met someone in person from the internet – They're my best friends.
( ) lost a child
(x) gone to college/university
(x) graduated college/university
( ) fired a gun – I'm a pacifist and always worried that it would blow my CO status.
( ) purposely hurt yourself
(x) taken painkillers – You get a broken rib, cramps or shingles and try not taking painkillers
( ) been intimate with someone of the same gender

Kat you need to get out more. You've never been arrested? never bitten someone? and never thrown up in a bar????? That you've never been in love is sadly disturbing. And just because you fire a gun at someone, i mean a can, doesn't mean you aren't a CO anymore (no i can't spell it either). But yes, they can tell if you have fired a gun, muuaaaahhhahahaahahhaaa.

Wow! Someone that knows my town! how rare! What did she say about it? Anything interesting? "God, that little town sucks..there's just a stupid castle on a hill, that's the bulk of it. Boring..boring..small.. insignificant little nowhere town in Germany" :). I like this survey, I may have to snag it! Hope you're having a good day and thank you so much for your last E-mail. That was really comforting.. Things are getting better, or at least, I'm learning to handle everything a little better.

Rik - You're funny. I have spent many many nights in a bar, but oh wait...I so lied. Yes, I have puked in a bar - it wasn't my usual bar so I had forgotten. And I know how to spell conscientious objector, it was just easier to type CO. ;-)

Clarity - She said it was small, of about 50,000 people. That was about it. She's very German - quiet, not overly demonstrative (i.e., my sister commented that she never smiled or laughed).
