Title: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: a_r2006 on May 21, 2006, 04:36:05 pm
I saw this on another board - looked like fun

1) You write something like: "The person below me wears Jesus Loves Me skinny briefs."

2) The person below them reads it and replies: either TRUE or FALSE - then makes their own statement for the person below them. They reply either TRUE or FALSE and so on and so on.

I'll start
"The person below me finds Heath Ledger hot !"
Title: Re: "The Person Below me "-Game
Post by: Toast on May 21, 2006, 04:50:23 pm
TRUE:    Wow, Yes I find Heath Legger so hot.
Not Ennis, but Heath.
There is a big difference between the two.
Heath is so twitchy, verbal and his eyes are so expressive.
When I saw him on Charlie Rose, I was amazed that he was so different than the promo pics I had seen of Ennis.  Such a smart and I think cuddly man.

But he is married, and we have to respect that - for now.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
The person below me finds Jake Gyllenhaal so hot.

Post by: Toast on May 21, 2006, 10:46:48 pm
Yes I have played the ABCs Game and I love it.
Pretty good at it too.
Made some errors, but that is the fun of it.

True!  Oh, yeah! That's one of the funniest threads around, ain't it?

The person below me is still waiting for his very own Jack or Ennis...   ???

The person below me is a member of the original Mile High Club.   :o
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JulietteMontague on May 23, 2006, 10:36:05 am
Not yet!

The person below me purchased BBM DVDs for friends or relatives who were too embarrassed to do it themselves.   :D
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on May 23, 2006, 10:57:18 am
True!  I don't know for sure that they were too embarassed, but for whatever reasons, I'm reasonably sure they'd have never bought it for themselves.  One was for my parents (who didn't like it  >:() and one for for a good friend (who did - very much).

The person below me has never eaten caviar.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: moremojo on May 23, 2006, 11:26:14 am
True--never tasted the stuff. Not particularly keen to do so, either, though I'm game if it were ever to be offered me. I've always been a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy when it comes to food (even like the beans, like Ennis!).

The person below me has never set foot on Antarctica.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Fran on May 23, 2006, 11:44:14 am

The person below me has smoked grass and maybe something a little stronger during a camping trip.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

The person below me has actually been to Wyoming.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: serious crayons on May 23, 2006, 02:57:00 pm
A bunch of times. It's beautiful and only about seven people live there. If you ever worry the country's getting overpopulated, it's a comfort to know they still have a lot of room left in Wyoming.

The person below me has spent a lot of time ahorseback.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: DeeDee on May 23, 2006, 03:34:53 pm

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Sashca1007 on May 23, 2006, 03:58:50 pm
TRUE, Deedee--  I just attended a rodeo two days ago (not my first, I love 'em!) and it was great--  rained all day, so the cowboys were HOT and WET!

The person below me ..... has mastered the art of harmonica playing---    ;D

Post by: Lumière on May 23, 2006, 04:27:42 pm

The person below me owns a pair of 30X42 binoculaurs...

Hell no! I'm not a crazy movie fan, am I??  :P I saw it only four times...

The person below me doesn't know what it's like being broke all the time.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on May 24, 2006, 11:14:48 am
False.  When I was a kid, my Mom once had to choose between electricity and food and opted for the latter.  My Dad sent her child support and paid the mortgage, but she didn't get any alimony from him and didn't work outside the home (his lawyer raped her, figuratively speaking), and she wasn't the greatest money manager in the world.  I often felt like the sky was falling growing up because we were all literally living hand-to-mouth and one check away from the street.  Then at 13, I went from that to living with my father in what seemed like the Taj Mahal in comparison - he had done very well with his business and was a millionaire by that time.  I feel like I've lived on the opposite ends of the spectrum.

More information than you required?  ;)

The person below me knows what a "Wacky Pack" (in the 70s) was.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: DeeDee on May 24, 2006, 01:29:17 pm
OMG!  I haven't heard Wacky Pack in ages..They were sheets of stickers that had real products parodied, I believe.  Like Campbells soup, Ajax cleaner etc.

And thanks for aging me ;)

Post by: moremojo on May 24, 2006, 01:35:35 pm
True--my mother and I attended a kite flying contest many, many years ago, and that evening saw ourselves on the televised evening news. And this isn't counting the increasingly ubiquitous use of surveillance cameras that we all see ourselves on nowadays.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on May 25, 2006, 04:18:59 pm
False, but I was one at a Chase-Pitkin, which was a mini-chain of huge hardware-type stores in Western New York in the 80s and 90s.  Don't know if they still exist now, what with all the Home Depots and Loweses.

The person below me has commuted four hours a day.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on May 25, 2006, 04:32:01 pm

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on May 28, 2006, 07:10:33 pm
Depends on what your definition of "rude" is.  ;)

Seriously, I'm very sorry to say that's false.  Maybe if I had some anxiety associated with either one of them, I could manage to get them into my dreams!  Have had visits from Jack and Ennis in several about a month ago, but always kind of in the background.  Meanwhile, I seem to be dreaming quite a bit about a challenging project at work.   :-\

No, thankfully & I hope I never have to.

The person below me thinks it it were real (it is really real though isn't it??) , Ennis would be alive today with plenty of grandkids he loves to bits, no partner, maybe one or two pals & still thinking on Jack every single day & night...
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Toast on May 29, 2006, 12:51:43 pm
Sad to say, I think so.  But many people don't even have a memory of such a love.

Sorta - I listen to the BBM soundtrack at work (in its entirety) day after day after day after day.  I don't know why, and I have no idea how I can possibly to do this without getting sick of it, but do it I do.  I know the sound so well that I hardly hear it in some ways, so it's doesn't move me to tears.  But I somehow am comforted by it nonetheless.

False - I was Ennis so very much.  Now I'm learning more about Jack & realise I've been a teeny bit Jack too, but mainly Ennis.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 01, 2006, 03:17:31 pm

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on June 02, 2006, 09:07:37 am
False, I'm sorry to say.  I was a voracious reader as a child and adolescent - the quintessential "bookworm."  I always had my nose in one.  They, and music, were my only means of escape.  But discovering movies in my teens and then having to read *so* much *all the time* in college ruined it for me.  I do still read occasionally, but the only time I have for it is while my son is napping or after he goes to bed.  And if I'm not so exhausted that I just fall into bed at those times, myself, I'm either watching a movie or visiting this board.

Maybe when he's older and/or I ever get over this movie...

False.  Obsessive?!  What do you mean by that anyway?  I mean, are you saying it like it's a bad thing?  Maybe obsessive is just misunderstood....but no, of course I'm not obsessive!  Who told you that?  What did they say anyway?

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on June 02, 2006, 02:08:45 pm
True-ish.  I don't find them in my dreams, but they come to me while I'm sleeping.  I've woken up many times when I had some problem that had been weighing on my mind when I went to sleep, whether work-, school-, or personal life-related, and suddenly knew exactly how to solve it.  One time in college, I could not figure out for the life of me where the logic of one area of a computer system I was coding was wrong.  I woke up at about 2:00 a.m., sat bolt upright, and exclaimed, "Oh, MY GOD!  I've GOT IT!"  About scared the bejesus out of my poor roommate.  I rushed to the restroom to write it down on a notepad (so as not to turn the light on and mess her up all the more) before I forgot it.  I tried it the next morning, and lo and behold, the whole system worked like a good plan.

I dream in color, too.  Exclusively.  Can't remember ever having a black and white one, but my husband says his all are.

Whoops - Pipedream - you beat me to it.

True - I always have beer in my refrigerator.  Coors Light for Ed and Honey Brown for me (and guests who don't like light beer).

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: moremojo on June 02, 2006, 06:46:03 pm
Yes! I probably ought to be ashamed to admit it, but I actually "wrang it out" once in the woods in Kerrville one summer evening. This was back in my teenage years; I had been hiking in the woods alone, it was starting to get dark, and I just had the impulse to try out this sudden fantasy of indulging myself in the bosom of Mother Nature. I was nervous as all-get-out, and it didn't help when a curious deer wandered over to me to see what I was up to. I finished safely, though, and made it back to the house, with no one the wiser (until now, perhaps ;))!

True.  It changed when my son was born, but has been the same wish every year since.

The person below me is feeling restless tonight for some reason.

haha - I have 7!  It was fun growing up with so many brothers and sisters.


Haha, I was wondering if the person will answer true to most of the questions they asked.

Millie, do you own a pair of shoe that costs more than $500?  :o


"The person below me is feeling restless tonight for some reason."
False.  It's still afternoon on the west coast ;D.  So far, I am doing ok.  I will let you know if I feel restless tonight.


The person below me loves science fiction when they grew up.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 02, 2006, 08:57:27 pm
False.  Science fiction has mostly just been uninteresting to me...too much to learn to understand the stories.


The person below me would love to eat a wonderful, old-fashioned home-cooked meal every night - but doesn't want to be the one to do the cooking.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on June 02, 2006, 09:09:00 pm
*So* true, Celeste.  I'd kill for a man who can cook.  And enjoys it.  Seriously.

I can cook, by the way.  I just don't enjoy it.  I think it comes from being a short-order cook starting at the age of six.  I cooked for my brothers and mother and myself from that age on.  Long, sad, already-told story.  I'd have one of my brothers start up the gas stove - you had to strike a match and light the "pilot light" - scared the shite outta me - and I would do the rest.  When I moved in with my Dad and stepmom at 13, she was a master, especially of Italian dishes (she's Sicilian), but she wanted no part of having anyone in the kitchen with her.  Cooking was and still is her therapy.  Fine by me - we couldn't stand each other, anyway.

I have a few dishes I like to make that always turn out especially good.  No one, and I mean *no one* makes lasagne like I do.  Even my stepmother has conceded it's the best she's ever had (hers is crap in comparison).  I also make a mean chicken cacciatore - my Mom taught me, not her - Southern style chicken and dumplings, chicken parmesan, and baked salmon.  But those are all special occasion type deals.  To work all day and then come home and whip something like that up - I'm sorry, but no.

Fortunately, Ed is a big fan of Mexican and Chinese take-out.  Those are weekly staples.  I cook the other two nights he's home, then take the three he's not off - I just make something nutritious for Will and nibble on what's left over when he's flying.

The person below me is *way* too prolific in her or his responses.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 02, 2006, 09:46:30 pm
TRUE.  TRUE.  TRUE.  TRUE.  TRUE.  TRUE.  Why do I enjoy this little game?  Could not begin to tell you even, and I never play games.  But I'm not sure if "way" too prolific is right, or just the right amount of prolific...

Haha Jenny - I have never spent that much on a pair of shoes - most I have spent is $200.  ;) (And that was because I am a shoe freak and I absolutely had to have that pair..) :P

False.  Not because I have used other lines, but I have not yet had the opportunity :P.  I probably used similar lines to reject some guys, but I have only dated one guy and married him.  See, I have told you that I am boring ;).  My life experience probably is quite different from the people grew up here, but you do appreciate the diversity, right? ;)

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on June 03, 2006, 07:01:28 pm
False.  Vodka is my poison.  Svedka is my favorite.

I once got so drunk on Jack Daniels that I threw up all over the top concrete step leading down to my and my parents' house (I was 18 - it was the summer before I went off to college, and my boyfriend and I had gone to a party for a longtime friend who was going off to boot camp the next day - don't worry - he was driving that night).  Staggered down to the house and then upstairs again to my bedroom.  Was coherent enough to set my alarm for 5:30 so I'd get up before my Dad did and hose it down the next morning.  Passed out fully clothed, shoes and all.  Woke up at 5:30.  Merrily hosed away on the top step for about five minutes until all trace was obliterated and staggered back down to the house.  And there was my Dad, sitting at the kitchen table in his bathrobe and slippers, reading the paper he had to have walked right past me to get out of the box across the road.  Chuckling.  I looked at him, figuring he was gonna let me have it for being so stupid.  He goes, "I'm thinkin' that headache you got about now is punishment enough.  Why don't you go back up to bed and sleep it off?"

I didn't come back down until about noon.  He was still chuckling.

I hate birds that fly over my head, especially seaguls and pigeons. Plus the sea air makes my hair go curly and I end up doing my best Cassie impression.

False.  Here in Chicago, they're not called wheelie bins but garbage carts, and the City supplies them for free.  I admit that I do avoid walking past them at night because there's a good chance a rat will be lurking nearby.  (I do have a "rationa"l fear of rats.)

SO, true, Celeste.  Always loved that Glenn Frey song, "You Belong to the City" - concrete under your feet - it's in your moves, it's in your blood, you're a man of the street.

I've never felt so alive in all my life as I have walking the streets of London and Manhattan.  Even doing that in downtown Rochester, NY, as a teenager gave me a buzz like no other.

False.  I don't believe there is previous life.  I do wonder what my life will turn out to be had I made different decisions a few times.

Regarding the Thai food, I am going to break the rule here.  Yep, I love Thai food.  Nipith is the expert here, but if you ask me, Pad Thai always looks good to me anytime if I don’t know what to order.  I actually made Pad Thai for potluck a few times and people loved it.  I like Thai Curry, medium spicy please  :).  Love the combined taste of sweet coconut milk and spicy seasoning.

The person below me has a few reoccurring dreams.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 05, 2006, 03:01:24 pm
True!  I have one where I'm discovering new rooms in my house.  And I used to have one where I was driving very fast down a long runway - I actually learned how to drive in that dream.  And then one  haven't had in a long while, thankfully, where I'm driving and the road becomes so steep that I can't drive over it, and my car falls right off of it.  And then sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night to a loud knocking on my door (there is no front door to knock on where I live - just a buzzer from the lobby).

Are you going to tell me what all of it means now?


The person below me hits the snooze button every morning and goes back to sleep at least for a few minutes no matter what.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on June 05, 2006, 03:18:17 pm
True!  I always set the alarm clock (my cell in this case) 30 minutes earlier than the time that I have to get off bed.  It rings every 9 minutes.  If I snooze, after 3 times, I am still 3 minutes ahead of the schedule. ;D

Unfortunately I am no Freud.  Maybe we can ask Dr. Melfi. :)  I just find dreams fascinating, as I am trying to figure out some of my dreams.
Here is one regarding dreams about accident.  http://www.dreamsleep.net/commondreams/meaning-of-accident-dream.html (http://www.dreamsleep.net/commondreams/meaning-of-accident-dream.html)

lol. that's very Asian. so yes that's true for me. I do enjoy wine, but beer and hard alcohol still baffles me.
 *correction, I enjoy the feeling of drunkenness, but I don't get the enjoyment of the taste of beer and hard alcohol. (wine and dirty martinis are exception)

The person below me has at least once flirted with a celebrity.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

yes. that is true. I enjoy movies, period. with friends, by myself. as long as it's good, i enjoy it. I do think there is a special enjoyment in seeing a movie by yourself though. you see what you want, no worries or judgement about how you'll react to the film. no pressure to give intelligent response to why you enjoyed Kill Bill.

does BetterMost forum count? I haven't really been a journaling type of person, but I do find putting my thoughts down in this forum to help me process my feeling a lot. It's even better than journaling because I get other people's perspectives too.

False.  I used to but now don't like it, not so much of the taste but cos it gets everywhere & is no doubt full of unwholesome stuff. I take chocolate raisins now.  Yummy, but a disaster if you drop one & it melts onto your clothes  >:(

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

The person below me listens to the BBM soundtrack non-stop.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on June 06, 2006, 01:09:09 pm
True.  I don't have the entire BBN soundtrack on my computer, but I have "A love that will never grow old" played repeatedly on my computer.  I don't think I will get tired of that song any time soon.

The person below me has fixed their ex with other people.  Ex here is loosely defined as ex girl/boy friend, ex wife/husband, or people that showed interest in pursuing a relationship with you but you have never developed a relationship with them.  Any kind of ex counts.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on June 06, 2006, 02:14:02 pm

The person below me has a good sense of direction.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on June 06, 2006, 03:34:59 pm
Yes, indeed.  I don’t know where that comes from.  You know people always talk about how women do not have a good sense of direction.  Not me.  I like to picture map in my mind when I go to a new place.  As long as I have a map, I am not afraid to go anywhere.

The person below me wears glasses or contact lenses.

Post by: YaadPyar on June 06, 2006, 04:18:26 pm

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Becky on June 06, 2006, 06:24:57 pm
Not really. My hair is kind of long it reaches just below my shoulders. Although I am not sure about gorgeous! ;D My hair just does it's own thing, I used to try and tame it but it never worked so I just go with the flow. Although at the moment I am being a Cassie as my hair has decided it wants to be in perfect curls so I'm just letting it be.

Post by: JennyC on June 06, 2006, 07:17:08 pm
I don’t know if I should say true or false.  I always love to learn. I hated school when I was in school and couldn’t wait to get out.  Now I miss the time I was in school terribly.  Some of my best times and worst times were when I was in schools.  If I can relive part of my life, I would choose to stay longer in school and cherish the time more.

The person below me has cared for someone dying.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Toast on June 07, 2006, 12:23:27 am
No I have never cared for a dying person, but I enjoy the chance to visit dying friends.  I think it is part of life.  Recently my aunt died quickly of cancer.  I visited her and was shocked that her eyes wre so piercing, but then I realized her face was paralyzed and all that moved was her eyes.  I could see her in there and I talked to her.  Other visitors talked around her, but I talked to her.  One afternoon I said something funny and a bit brazen to her, and her daughter in law laughed and said would you like to thow this facecloth at him.  Her arm pivoted on the elbow, and she raised her hand.  and I knew she enjoyed my flippant remark and threw a facecloth at me.  She passed the next morinig, and I am sure I am the last one that she communicated with.  I think dealing with the visitors can be harder than dealing with the dying person.  I miss my aunt, but her time had come.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 07, 2006, 08:39:36 am
Oh my, yes!!!  I think that's why I miss driving so much (now that I live in the city) - not nearly as much time to drive and listen to music and sing.  And I like the music loud enough to drown out my vvoice completely, just as a courtesy to others.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 07, 2006, 09:31:21 am
False.  I was denied a job once because I flunked a lie detector test.  The great irony is that I answered every question totally honestly, which was probably not that good of an idea.  I was so glad not to get that job.  I would never fit in a place with that level of suspicion anyway.

Now, I just got a BBM in an oval euro-style bumper sticker ordered by a fellow Brokie here at BetterMost. Only those in the know will know.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on June 07, 2006, 04:45:27 pm
True.  My family members except for my husband and sister-in-law know *not* to talk to me about "that movie," some because they have no intention of ever seeing it and I've chastised them for it, and others because they've seen it and "didn't think it was all that great."  My co-workers think I'm more than a little bit nutty because of it (if they didn't already), but all of them who've seen it liked or loved it, so I'll still talk to them.  ;)  Then there are two online friends who don't talk to me at all anymore.  Good riddance - we really didn't see eye to eye on a lot of other important stuff, either.

A thousand times, but more about BM than anything. It is all about me spending to long on the computer and them wanting to stop me...like that has worked so far. As I am having one right at this moment about the computer. God sometime I really just want to punch my sister, calling me sad and that I am waisting my life talking to you guys, so far it is better than getting drunk and having sex with a load of chavy boys which she did at my age...sorry that is too much information but I am still mad with her cause every time I see her it is "Your just so sad!". Infact she has just said that now  :laugh: she is so predictable.

The person below me own electric carving knife.  ;D

Oh double question ummm we did but we never used it so I think my mum gave it to some random charity shop, but if we still had it now I would use it all the time on sandwiches and all kinds of things it wasn't supposed to be used for.

The person below me is a frequent visitor to Jake and Heath related sites.(Go and look at Jake watch's new design, it's briliant and it means I get to be a bond girl) ;D

The person below me absolutely loves Macaroni and cheese (home-made of course)  :)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Becky on June 07, 2006, 06:30:17 pm
Ewwwww no! I have always and always will hate Mac and cheese of course I don't mean the one that was in friends that was hilarious. I have never ever liked it out of a can, that is just disgusting but I am rather fond of cheese and pasta, but I like the cheese grated not all gloupy. Also I think the fact that my sister has Mac and cheese with Marmite has put me off it aswel.

Post by: Penthesilea on June 08, 2006, 11:02:43 am

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 08, 2006, 12:29:39 pm
I do like the original, not Miami & New York.  But they use so much blue lighting - cold feel, cold sets, cold characters...I like the show, but can't handle too much blue.

The person below me loves to fly.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: serious crayons on June 08, 2006, 01:20:17 pm
Yes and no. Sitting in the actual airplane, especially during takeoffs and landings, makes me kind of sick, but I love going places on planes. (I even love hanging out in airports between flights -- I think it must be the freedom from household/childcare responsibilities.) I'm flying somewhere tomorrow, in fact!


The person below me keeps a journal.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 08, 2006, 01:24:11 pm
Yep.  Mostly it's on-line here now, in Daily Thoughts.  I've kept journals for years, and periodically get rid of all of them...don't want to leave any evidence behind you know.  Sometimes when I leave the house in the morning, I look around with the thought, "Ok.  If I don't make it home today, and the police have to investigate, what don't I want them to find."  Makes it sound like I've got something to hide, but in actuality it just inspires to me to tidy up a bit.  I ain't got a single interesting secret to tell....


The person below me, much like Barbara Streisand, has a side from which they always preferr to be photographed.

I means that someone is pretty skilled with tools, can renovate a house, fix things up, does the most repairs himself and so on.

Back on topic:

To be honest: I haven't talked to DeeDe personally yet. Although I vote true. I appreciate everyone's thoughts on this board. That's one of the the differences betwen BM and IMDB: you don't have to agree with everything said, but you don't have to feel annoyed because there's no rudeness. And you know that you have at least one thing in common with every other person here: the admiration for BBM.

I didn't used to think that, but I've been opening the sunroof on my 4-runner lately (not actually opening it and letting the Africa hot air in - just opening the cover) because I discovered that Will likes to look up at the sky as we're driving to school every morning.  And damned if my mood hasn't been noticeably elevated the last couple of weeks because of it.  I can feel it elevating, almost, as I feel the sunlight on my face each morning.

The person below me loves to drive.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

True.  My husband was the opposite, until I asked him one day if he was just planning to sit on all that money in the bank like it was a big egg.  We still loathe being in debt because we both grew up with parents who always were and it scared the hell out of us, but we don't keep giant sums of money in the bank anymore.

The person below me loves the heat (above 30°C).
I like sunshine but not heat, it is 30+ here now and with all the football hooligans about and the heat I have a massive headache. Also because we have no AC in our house(why would we, we live in England) it is absolutely boiling eventhough the fans have been on full speed. Plus I am upstairs at the moment so it is extra hot up here but thank god I don't have to sleep up here and my bedroom is on the ground floor.

Ohh double post!


The person below loves to go south where it's warm for a summer holiday.  :)

Well I am going to belguim this summer so I suppose that counts as a little bit south. We usually go to somewhere in Europe in the summer and save our big holidays for the half terms and stuff. Although next year I am going to Alberta for the summer so that is more west than it is south.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on June 16, 2006, 05:01:40 pm
Definitely no racist. I really don’t know about homophobe.  I never feel comfortable to discuss anything related to sex or sex-orientation with my parents.  I would like to think they are not.  I think they won’t discriminate anyone because of sex-orientation.  Given their age, culture background and their exposure to homosexuality, it’s safe to assume that they probably will feel uncomfortable and may feel it’s unnatural.  But they are not the people who could voice their disgust.

No, not me. I didn't even know what that is until you mentioned it. I googled and it looks to be something I might want to join though.

the person below me has lived in more than 5 different cities.

Post by: ednbarby on June 17, 2006, 10:18:54 am
True.  Rochester, Canandaigua, Potsdam (all New York), Dayton, Columbus (Georgia), Boca Raton.  OK, the second and third ones are a bit of a stretch, but Canandaigua is officially a city.  I think Potsdam (where I went to college) may still be only a town.

The person below me has been on strike/marched to support (political) causes.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: cmr107 on June 17, 2006, 01:49:37 pm
Hahaha, well it wasn't exactly political, but in my senior year of high school, the teachers threatened to go on strike to support the janitors who were about to all be replaced by some firm the school had contracted. That would have made the school close, making our graduation much later than it should have been. A lot of the seniors got really organized and protested the strike, getting to school at 6am with signs and stuff for about a week before the decision was made. We were on all the news channels, it was great. (They didn't go on strike.)

Hardly any surprisingly, seeing how old my giant chunky computer is I am really surprised it hasn't crashed so far with me on it basically 24/7, but I suppose it proves the point "They don't make 'em like they used to!" And it's a good job they don't, that's all I can say. ;D

False.  Three times - the first when I was 14 and had extensive oral surgery to ready myself for the four years of braces I then got to wear, the second was when I went into pre-term labor with Will at 31 weeks, and the third was when he finally came into this world 6 weeks after that.  I'm hoping the third time's the charm.

I hate my hair most of the time, but I like it when it decides to look nice. I swear my hair was some sort of evil person in it's past life as it never likes me to look good, and when ever I try to do something with it it decides to do the opposite.

False.  But I like bowling when they put the kiddie-proof inflatable things in the gutters.  As long as the balls can't go in the gutters, I'm an amazing bowler.  Well - I can at least get over 70.  Sometimes.  But only with the kiddie-proof thingies. 

I suck at bowling.

true. but liking and actually getting a neat work space is entirely two different things. my desk is a mess most of the time. it's all the print outs I have to make for each tweaking of designs i do. and then on top of that all the notes that clients make. for each revisions. sigh.

LOL, Celeste.  False.  My favorite animal in the world is quite specifically my German shepherd, Layla, who I still refer to as Best. Dog. Ever.  In general, it is German shepherds.  There are quite a few of them living in my neighborhood, and my heart just leaps every time I see one of them out walking his or her human.

True! I hated Peter, a team mate of mine, when I first met him. He was arrogant, brash and confrontational. I later regard him as one of my best friends. By the end of college, I felt like I had learned so much from his being confrontational and brash. He is what I'd call a sand paper. Hurts to be rubbed the wrong way at first, but you end up more polished because of it.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on June 20, 2006, 09:43:52 am
Drove the other kids crazy, I think, but the teachers liked my chatterboxing.  I remember one of my favorite ones wrote in my year book that he loved having me in his class because I was the only one who got his jokes.  I can remember so many times he'd say something clever as hell and I'd look at him and smile and he'd wink at me.  Don't worry - it was nothing untowards - he was gay and had a longtime partner who was another of my favorite teachers.

No, but trying to.  It's just a yard really & I've been trying to plant up borders but now we've got a drought so with that, cats that like to dig, my gardening skills (lack of) plus slugs = not a flourishing garden  >:(

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 20, 2006, 12:46:11 pm
I have Netflix so I don't have to worry about this stuff, and I never get library books for the same reason.  I've had the same three DVDs for 5 weeks now, and predict I shall never watch any of them anyway.  Pathetic, I know.


The person below me has favorite foods that they eat meal after meal until they're sick of them, and move onto another favorite food for a while.

Post by: YaadPyar on June 20, 2006, 12:53:58 pm
OMG - never.  Never.  Never.  Never.  If you're in the neighborhood (say, just dropping in from France) do call in advance.  Otherwise you will get the very cold and inquisitive "hello" on the intercom, wondering why you would just drop by unannounced.  I'm delighted however to get the unexpected phone call.


The person below me loves to be exposed to new music.

Anyhow, you all, I don't particularly like unexpected visits either! Now you're warned.

I *like* being exposed to new music.

I feel like I travel through space and time every day.  Outer space seems scary to me - too easy for everything to go wrong, and it seems like it would be cold and dark and lonely...enough of that here on this planet for my tastes!

True.  It's part two of my "Always drink heavily within crawling distance of your bed" rule.

Seriously, we have a little tradition of staying in and watching our favorite classic movie, "Holiday."  Then we crack open the champagne at midnight, have a little kiss-kiss, and head to the pod.  Boring and incredibly dorky, but true.  I don't see that changing at least until Will's old enough not to need a sitter.

True. As a perspective perfectionist, I often provide far more information than anybody wants or asks for. I've tried to become more aware of when I'm doing it and so have changed a little, but the desire to do it crops up far more often than not.

I was always afraid of them, but my brother worked at Disney World last year and when I visited him, he forced me to go on Rockin' Roller Coaster (and we got to skip the line and go through the back door  ;D). It was actually really fun! I haven't been on one since that though.

Everything reminds me of BBM.  I saw something today actually that reminded me of BetterMost.net, and laughed out loud as I walked down the street.  Eric posted this a long while back (http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php?topic=1467.0 (http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php?topic=1467.0)), and for some reason it stuck in my mind:

Gaylights -- an unnatural highlighting of the hair that no straight man would be caught dead with.

Plus cause we were in Wales there are alot of quiet places to sit and have private talks, me and my friend Joanna had a lot of these about certain things and shared alot of secrets, but we both agreed that "What is said on the mountain stays on the mountain" I don't know where I got this idea from. ::)

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 26, 2006, 03:12:30 pm
It is highly unlikely that I will attend a film festival, unless you include watching a few movies back-to-back on a slow weekend day at my own place.  But I don't think you can really include that.


The person below me loves technology and gadets that actually improve the quality of his/her life, and is willing to spend money on them.

True.  Though I am not a big fan on gadgets (at lease I don’t think so), I have some gadgets that I am so depended on.  I have spent some money on the gadgets, but I didn’t pay top dollars for them when they just came out.

The person below me hates job interviews.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on June 27, 2006, 01:11:32 am
I actually don't mind it. being in the creative industry, job interviews are usually not so up tight and formal. especially in LA, wearing suit and tie is overdressing. I go in with my portfolio, and I get feedback on my work at the very least, so I actually enjoy the process.

the person below me bought a new piece of clothing over the weekend.

True! When I was little I had a whole conversation with my mom in my sleep about how I was sick. In the morning she asked me how I was feeling, and I had no idea what she was talking about. Last year my roommate said I talked in my sleep a few times, but there wasn't a conversation because she didn't talk back (not that I know of, anyway).

The person below me can't live without tea...
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Becky on June 27, 2006, 02:01:58 pm

Becky, if you are going to flatter me (saying I'm wonderful), how can I refuse to help? ;D No problem, you can PM me your work if you like, and I'll check on it for you! But I DO expect my Daniel Day-Lewis as a reward  :P

I don't talk to her much anymore (I'm in school in Chicago, her school is in Washington DC) but whenever we do talk, we just pick up where we left off and it's like we had just seen each other yesterday. It's wonderful.

I lied! My girlfriend when I lived in the UK was HALF American, and half Belgian. But she hardly ever lived in the US, does that count?

And Chrissi, what I meant was, if I went for a German, it has to mean the French (males ;D) are not such a big deal. And that's right, they aren't (ok, except one...)

The person below me has a guilty pleasure (please specify!)...
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JulietteMontague on June 29, 2006, 04:05:04 pm
True, shoes.  I always buy shoes whenever I'm shopping.  My Daddy passed away before he could wear the special shoes he needed, so it comforts me somewhat to buy footwear.  I have enough shoes to put Imelda to shame, and I still can't stop purchasing them.   :)

The person below me has had a tooth knocked out.   :)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on June 29, 2006, 04:47:11 pm
Not out, but loose enough that I had to have it capped when I was in my early twenties.  It's my left top front one, and it got knocked loose when a girl friend and I were having a happy tussle (we were seven) one summer evening.  Actually, we were attempting to imitate the World Wrestling Championships.  I ended up bloodying her nose and she ended up damn near knocking my tooth out.  So that was the first and last time we ever did that.

The person below me is *really* wishing they were in Atlanta right now.  :)

I would love to be there.  I did speak with Lynne a few hours ago who arrived safe and sound and was going to be picking up Daniel soon, and then off to dinner and the movie!!!  It was nice to sorta be connected at least.

Nope, haven't been flying much lately.  My miles won't get me an international ticket anyway.

The person below has offered a ride to a hitchhiker.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on June 29, 2006, 05:11:11 pm
Never.  Never would, either.


The person below me gives money to the homeless.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on June 29, 2006, 05:24:52 pm
True.  If they are close and asking for money.

Regarding hitchhiker, I have offered twice under the circumstance that I am 100% sure the person is not threatening the safety of me or my families.  Other times I really want to help, but didn't have that 100% confidence, then I won't risk.  The recent one was in Yosemite park where a couple hike down a trail (4 hours hike I think) but missed the bus to go back to their car.  Since we only have one spare sit in the car, the wife went with us.  It was one hour drive back to Glacier Point (where they left their car).  We had a very nice conversation during the drive.  Somehow we started to talk about politics and she was furious about the current administration and the war.  Needless to say, we enjoyed that conversation, and exchanged phone no.   :)

So now turn the table around, the person below me has successfully hitchhiked.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on June 29, 2006, 05:35:09 pm
Yes, and that's why I give lifts to hitch-hikers unless they look threatening. (You in the US make it sound very scary and dangerous indeed to take hitchhikers :-\)

Hey Jenny, did you go back for the hubby afterwards, or did the wife take this opportunity to go back to being single? ;D
The husband took shuttle bus back to their campground.  I think they were trying to be considerate to let wife come with us since she is female and less threatening by default.  But I wouldn't mind to have the husband ride with us either.  They all look like decent people.

The person below me loves to wear a particular scent/fragrance.
Is the person above me going to think less of me if I don't wear any scent/fragrance? 
And please the person two posts above don't think less of me as I don't know who Ernst Lubitsch is either.

Certainly not! He was a German Jewish film-maker who had to emigrate to the US like so many others in the 1930's, and he was hilarious! Try watching "To Be Or Not To Be" (especially that one, in which he manages to make you laugh about concentration camps, or at least those who ran them, and to make a total fool out of Hitler, made in 1941 or 42), "Ninotchka" (in which a grim Soviet spy ends up being able to actually laugh...), "The Shop Around The Corner"... Check him up!

Yes, I love one particular perfume called Vetiver (Givenchy makes it). I also like Musk.

Double post, sorry! I'll leave the shooting star to the person below me.

Post by: ThePirateBride on June 30, 2006, 10:53:55 am
True.  I don't know how someone can kill animals with such innocent faces.  I do like leather shoes, handbags and well done steak though.  It’s a bit hypocritical, but then I’m not looking into their eyes when they’re killed.   :'(

The person below me had champagne last night.   :D

Wish I could say that was true.  But I do plan on having some sparkling wine tonight - some old friends are coming over for dinner, and got a very nice one after a wine tasting about a month ago we've been saving.

The person below me really hates hot weather.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Penthesilea on June 30, 2006, 12:24:02 pm
False. I love the summer, hot weather, the sun, going to our public bath (we have season cards), lounging in the kiddies pool in the garden, eating in the garden, having no or almost no clothes on, BBQ-ing, sitting outside in the late evening,... Ahhh, the whole world is fine for me as long as it's summer.

I am! I flunked German at school and am having a go at learning it from a great set of Michel Thomas "Es tut mir leid. Ich cann sie nicht verstehen". I expect that's spelt all wrong, but I figured as long as I knew that phrase I'd be okay  :P

Not yet but I am shoe crazy. Plus being a broke teenager(why is that always my excuse, maybe cause it's true) I don't have that money, but if I asked nicely I suppose my mum could get me them(that is could, not would). But my best guy friend has more pairs of shoes that me and he absolutely freaked when I showed him my new converse shoes, although he is more of a Vans guy.

Converse and Vans are both types of shoes. My friend Jonny likes Vans more than converse and I like converse more than Vans shoes. If you google it you should understand what they look like. It doesn't judge what type of person you are, it just lets the person know your tastes! Sorry if I confused you, it is just a personal joke thing, I really shouldn't have bought it on to here.

(I have much prettier ones than these, I just can't find a picture of them!)

The person below me is going to miss alot of people this week!
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Sheyne on July 02, 2006, 02:53:24 am

Very true, Becky!

I'm on school holidays this week and being a teacher, I am very attached to my little ones. I'm actually very glad to have run into a few of them over the break and gotten my fix of little cuddles!


The person below me has paid more than $100 for a pair of sunglasses.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 02, 2006, 03:09:06 am
Yeah - only because they were my regular glasses until I had laser eye surgery, and then I had wonderful polarized lenses put in them to make them into sunglasses.  If you're gonna spend the money, do it on the lenses!


The person below me is learning more about themselves that they knew they ever could, and it's scary and wonderful all at the same time.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: dmmb_Mandy on July 02, 2006, 04:28:19 am
Yes, true. Scary? Yes. Wonderful? It will be, in time. I have to hold onto that.

I'm new to this game and haven't read through all 88 pages of it, so forgive me if this has been said:

The person below me said "I love you" to someone today.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on July 02, 2006, 06:09:07 am
Welcome to the game Mandy!

I was going to, and didn't. Not the right time. I was wrong, but it's not too late  ;)

The person below me sleeps till after 12 noon on their days off.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 02, 2006, 07:18:09 am
False.  The only time I've slept 'til noon (and then it wasn't really sleeping but rolling around in agony) was that time I drank *way* too much white wine at a friend's Christmas party the night before.

The person below me woke up to the sound of thunder and rain (and loved it) this morning.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on July 02, 2006, 08:12:40 am
I wish! Wanna know what sound I woke up to this morning? Make sure you ain't eatin': to the sound of my daughter howling 'cos she'd stepped into cat pooh in the living room. Her father had forgotten to either put the cat outside, or take its "cat toilet" inside  >:(

The person below me has 3 kids or more.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 02, 2006, 08:22:15 am
False.  Just one.  And for a variety of reasons I won't go into here, one is the right number for us.  (Thank goodness he seems to have no interest whatsoever in having a little brother or sister - that would tear me up.)

The person below me has wind-surfed.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Sheyne on July 02, 2006, 08:37:11 am

Nope.. I reckon I would throw up if I did something like that...  Might get the stomach to try it one day but not today!  ;D

The person below me thinks the guy in the new Superman film is stunningly gorgeous... *sigh*  :-*
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 02, 2006, 08:39:28 am
False.  He's handsome, no doubt.  But a little too flawless, if that makes any sense - it's like there's no soul behind that face plate.  Haven't seen the movie yet - maybe I'd change my mind if I did.

The person below me can't drink coffee black.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 02, 2006, 09:06:00 am
I can too.  I can drink it black or most any way that it gets served.  But if I drink it black I liked it diluted with a bit of cool water to cut the bitterness and make it less hot.


The person below me spends too much money at Starbucks on...coffee, tea, whatever else.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 02, 2006, 10:52:24 am
nah. I actually don't go to Starbucks nor Coffee Beans all that often. I like them just fine, but I usually will buy from local mom-n-pops if I can. I believe in entrepreneurship and will encourage it with my bucks.

the person below me owns more than 5 pairs of sunglasses.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 02, 2006, 12:33:42 pm
Oh, easily.  I seem to collect those.  Along with (cheap) hand bags, belts, and shampoo.

The person below me is currently using Suave ("Smoother," in my case) shampoo.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: dmmb_Mandy on July 02, 2006, 12:55:51 pm
False. I just use regular Dove shampoo at the moment.

The person below me is having chicken for supper tonight.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on July 02, 2006, 12:59:24 pm
No, vegetarian here!

The person below me has met fellow Bettermostians in person.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: dmmb_Mandy on July 02, 2006, 01:05:32 pm
False. Not yet, but soon!  ;)

*grumbles about living so far away*

The person below me is about to make a huge change in their life.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 02, 2006, 01:17:27 pm
Oh my yes - set things in motion just yesterday, and waiting to see what happens next.  Too bad I'm not sleeping well these days.  I could probably really, really use the rest!


The person below me likes to talk things through.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on July 02, 2006, 01:30:21 pm
Probably not, I like to run things in my head, rather than talk them through.  I want to make sure I know what I am talking before I start talking. :)

The person below me is excited about the new space shuttle launch and will be watching it on July 4th (if it's not further postponed, that is).

p.s.  Welcome, Sheyne and Mandy, our new players. Hope you enjoy this game as much as we do. :)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: dannyboy on July 02, 2006, 07:10:16 pm

no, not excited but i doon't live in america so i don't know mcuh about it  :-\  i love these cowboy heads  :)

the person below me has been confused about their sexuality
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 02, 2006, 07:34:13 pm
Had been confused in many ways.  I finally gave it up, and it seems much less confusing now.  Bit of a dramatic choice, but seems like the right one for me.


The person below me downloads music from the Internet.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Sheyne on July 02, 2006, 07:41:34 pm

Boy, do I ever!!  ;D  Most of my mp3 library comes from the net (all legal channels of course)  :P   I would be lost without my iPod, truly lost.

The person below me has been told that their smile is their best feature..  ;D
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Midnight24 on July 02, 2006, 07:43:26 pm
I've been told that, once, but usually people say that about my upperface (eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows haha)

The person below me spends more time on the internet then they would like to.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 03, 2006, 11:03:05 am
Well - I spend more time on the Internet than I think I should, but not actually more than I'd like!


The person below me can't believe it's July already!
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 03, 2006, 11:41:41 am
True!  In fact I just changed my wall calendar to reflect that, shaking my head all the while.  Crap.  It's just like my Dad said - it goes exponentially faster the older you get.

The person below me is going to see a new movie with friends sometime this week.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 03, 2006, 12:08:12 pm
well, I went and saw The Devil Wears Prada with friends on Saturday. I'm going to go see Superman today (today's still part of the long weekend, right?)

the person below me wears contact lenses.

(btw - Welcome to the board dannyboy.)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Penthesilea on July 03, 2006, 01:56:00 pm
False. And neither glasses. But maybe this will change over the next months. I've noticed that almost every sripture at the tv screen is way too little for me to read. I guess I should see an optician or oculist.

The person below me will meet a very dear friend today.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 03, 2006, 02:23:12 pm
Likely only on-line....


The person below me has friends around the world.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 03, 2006, 03:34:58 pm
well, I went and saw The Devil Wears Prada with friends on Saturday.

Did ya like it?  That's what I'm gonna go see tonight.  :)

Oh, and true.  If Canada counts.  I did have one who lived for a long time in London (Islington, actually), but she's back in San Francisco now.

The person below me had to work today.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JulietteMontague on July 03, 2006, 07:14:32 pm
True, and I also have to work tomorrow!   :(

The person below me likes BBQ potato chips.   :D

Post by: starboardlight on July 03, 2006, 08:41:16 pm
Did ya like it?  That's what I'm gonna go see tonight.  :)

Yes, Devil Wears Prada was a lot of fun. Streep is deliciously evil. She just purrs her hatefulness. I loved her performance. Anne has some winning moments though when her character is able to get ahead of Streep's. And the fashion was fun to look at too.

The person below me likes BBQ potato chips.   :D

I like most kinds of chips. I tried Hawaiian style BBQ chips the other day though, it was a bit too sweet.

the person below me sleeps naked.

Just got back.  That's how I'd describe it, too.  Great minds.  :)

And false - I don't sleep naked.  Even if I :ahem: start off that way, I like to have a T-shirt or tank top and undies on when I sleep.  Don't know why - just always have.

i don't sleep naked. can't do it. always boxers or something and it sometimes gets so hot here that i dont' always wear a shirt either

the person below me can put their feet behind their head
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Sheyne on July 04, 2006, 03:44:18 am

Actually yes I can!  ;D *preen*

Thanks to my years of taekwondo and yoga, not to mention good old-fashioned genetic flexibility, I can put both feet behind my head, do the splits etc.

The person below me prefers big cities to small towns.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on July 04, 2006, 03:53:19 am
There's NO doubt about that!

Post by: YaadPyar on July 04, 2006, 08:40:31 am
I think I actually wish instead they would hve something worht saying.


The person below me is mostly warm most of the time.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Sheyne on July 04, 2006, 10:23:11 am

Hmm.. i'm guessing this one is open to interpretation? Cause warm could mean personality or temperature. And I think I'm "yes" for both. I live in sunny Australia, which is smack bang in the middle of Winter as I type this, but its a lovely temperature - no snow, just the occasional spot of rain and wind.

And personality... yes, i think I'm a pretty warm person most of the time - I have my moments, like everybody, but generally yeah, I'm a warm sort of creature.

The person below me dreams in colour.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 04, 2006, 11:00:55 am
yes, i do dream in colors. My most vivid one is my flying through a desert canyon that was brilliantly orange (think Valley of Fire) below me with a purple whale swimming next to me.

and Shayne, from what I know about you, I imagine that you are warm most of the time. I bet you'd make a great cuddle buddy.  ;)

thanks starboardlight (although i think i've read your real name is Nipith?? am i right?  :-\ )
yes, dannyboy, folks here call me Nipith.

the person below me owns an iPod (any model, any generation).

True, but I always forget to lug it along!    :laugh:

The person below me has special BBQ cooking utensils that will be put to use today.   :)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on July 04, 2006, 11:07:57 am
Yes, I love my iPod.  Only problem, listening songs on my iPod is interfering with listening to NPR on my daily commute. :)

Oops, doulble post.

Nope, I don't have special BBQ utensils.  I like to eat BBQ, but don't BBQ that much at all.

The person below plans to go swimming today.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JulietteMontague on July 04, 2006, 11:14:10 am
False.  I don't swim, besides, I'm at work today.   :(

The person below me loves potato salad.   :)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Snowflakes on July 04, 2006, 01:22:51 pm
True, but it has to be the mayo variety, not the mustard type! 8)

The person below me likes seasoned french fries. :D
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on July 04, 2006, 01:30:06 pm
I do (I'm as French as the fries), but it's my German boyfriend who got me to try them seasoned!

The person below me now calls those fries "freedom fries"  :P

Post by: ThePirateBride on July 04, 2006, 01:33:41 pm
False.  That type of sweeping generalization makes me crazy!   :D

Yes, I love my iPod.  Only problem, listening songs on my iPod is interfering with listening to NPR on my daily commute. :)

you do know that you can download NPR programs for to listen on your iPod, yes? You can use iTunes Music Store to find the programs or down load them from you NPR station websites. Even better you can listen to NPR programs from other cities. I love Boston's WGBH's Morning Stories. I also like listening Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, during my workouts.


The person below me has ridden the new version of "Pirates of the Caribbean" at a Disney resort.   ;D

False. I haven't been to a Disney Resort in years.

The person below me loves eating tacos at a catering truck.

I LOVE cuddles!!  ;D  Bring them ON I say!   :D

And false to the tacos.. I only braved them once in my life and that was at the mercy of a friend who had the misfortune to cook meat that was slightly past its use-by date and promptly put me off for LIFE...   :-X

I didn't know that.  Have to try it next time.  I like to listen to Forum with Michael Krasny.  It's quite long, so most of the time I can only listen to part of the program.  It's a local program that covers a wide-ranging of topics.  Many interesting perspectives, and in-depth analysis.

The person below me can explain why its 3:47am here in Brisbane and I'm STILL on this board?!?!?!?!?
Because we are too damn special, and you just can't quit us. ;D  And I guess it's also because that you are on break so you don't have to get up early in the morning.


Ok, I am late again.

The person below me is planning to watch BBM tonight...

Nope, not tonight.  Just saw it again a few days ago.  Tonight will be Glory Road.

Post by: Becky on July 04, 2006, 06:39:25 pm
Sorry I went in the shower and missed my que!
"Well earlier today I was castratin' cats!"
Sorry I have been waiting to say that to someone who would get it all day! I am doing 2 weeks work experience at a veterinary surgery, so I get to do all the fun things like assisting castrations, bitch spays and even today a birth! It is really fun so far and is much better that what my other friends are doing which is mainly office jobs. But yeah, no cows to castrate yet.

The person below me wanted to be a vet when they were younger.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 04, 2006, 06:50:34 pm
True.  I wanted to be a vet, and then I realized I would have to do things like give shots, perform surgeries, and put animals down.  I knew I couldn't do any of that.  So I just love my kitty a lot.

The person below me has a real crush on somebody else on this board.
Sheyne, what a tricky question! If someone has a real crush, they may not want to admit it here ;).  As to me, given most of the members here are either female or gay, and I being a straight female and happily married, we are unavailable to each other on so many levels.  So really crush, none, pseudo crush, plenty. ;D

The person below me is going to meet a fellow Brokie in person soon.

p.s. You are all welcome to answer Sheyne’s question again.  I am just trying to save everyone the embarrassment here. ;D

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 05, 2006, 02:11:35 am
I do consider my job interesting. I'm a freelance graphic designer, which isn't all that unique. I do find that it challenges me often.

the person below me loves crossword puzzles.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Midnight24 on July 05, 2006, 03:39:52 am
No, I'm not much of a crossword puzzle lover. I used to like them but not much anymore sadly :-\

The person below me has a fondness for antiques.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Sheyne on July 05, 2006, 04:49:20 am

Depends really on antique what? Antique cars? No. Antique furniture? Yes.  I think there is a beauty and a "vibe" about old furniture. Depending on exactly HOW old, you can bet that it was hand-made, not factory produced like the stuff we got around today. And when people create things by hand, its very personal and special. I got an antique chest at my place that I occasionally like to just touch with my fingertips. It has a really beautiful energy to it.  I probably sound like someone who's only had an hour's sleep, hunh? Well, by a staggering co-incidence...  :laugh:

The person below me has cried over something wonderful in the last 5 days.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: saucycobblers on July 05, 2006, 07:16:19 am
Well, I watched BBM for the first time in 6 weeks (gasp!) last night. I was okay until Jack says the "Sometimes I miss you so much..." line and the floodgates opened. Needless to say my eyes are now puffy slits... plus I was watching it in bed with my laptop next to me, so somehow it seemed even more intimate with the boys  :'( (I know that's not the kinda thing you meant, but...)

The person below me is having / going to a party this weekend...
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Penthesilea on July 05, 2006, 07:56:46 am
False. No party this weekend. But it'll be the first weekend in 4 or 5 weeks that is not fully booked. And I will enjoy this fact very much, don't need no party right now.

The person below me is frightened of at least one animal.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 05, 2006, 08:06:23 am
False.  At least not any animal I've ever seen.  Snakes don't bother me unless they're in my pool, which did happen once.  It was a garter snake only about a foot long and very skinny - a baby - and the thing came at me like an anaconda when I tried to net it.

Important Safety Tip: Never try to net a snake, no matter how small and "harmless," while you are actually *in* the pool.

The person below me is fighting a cold today.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: nic on July 05, 2006, 08:39:48 am
False.  I'm sending you a bunch of get well vibes - hope you feel better soon.  A summer cold is just awful (well, it's summer here).

Nope.  11.  I did hate it, though.  I liked the kid, but not how he kissed.  Thought he knew what he was doing because he was a little bit "older" (13 - ha).  He didn't.

Oops - double post.  No, I don't grind 'em myself unless it's a special occasion - too lazy.  I buy the pre-ground stuff.

I remember he was horrified to hear I was an atheist, and kept telling me to join a cult/ church, just ANY church, but not to remain faithless! Now, over 20 years on, I wish I could meet him and discuss this in person with him. Still in love with India. Not been there, but to Ireland and Germany, I have.

The person below me prefers tea to coffee.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

The person below me does not follow any recipes when cooking.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 06, 2006, 05:16:24 pm
I usually don't. I'll only follow a recipe when I'm trying something new. After the first time, I can usually get the essence of it and will go freestyle after that. The thing is, as a single man living alone, I can't keep my fridge stocked, or most of it'll go bad before I can even get to them. The market structure is not single person friendly. Even a head of lettuce is more than I can finish in a week. So I don't have all the ingredients to recipes. I will improvise with what I ever I have for the most part.

the person below me prefers to cook at home as oppose to going out.

Most people hate the taste, think it’s very stinky and smelly.  But the people who enjoy the taste love it, and can not get enough of it.  I guess they don’t call that the King of the Fruit for no reason.  As to me, I am not brave enough to try it.

Yes I have. And I'll will get to do that again in August when I go to Thailand (Woowiee!!)

(A note about Durian, the taste of the meat itself is sweet, it's the scent that turns people off. I lived in Thailand until I was 10, so I get used to it, and really love the fruit. I'm fortunate enough to live in LA where they do import some when it's in season. The scent is reminiscent of cooking gas, if you're curious, but a little stronger. If you get the chance I would recommend you trying a bite. It won't kill you. Plus you'll know and be able to tell people that you had the King of Fruits.)

The person below knows how to ride a horse.

False.  I went riding once as a kid, but it was basically just being led around by a handler on one while inside a paddock (is that even the right word?), so I doubt that qualifies.

The person below me is having pizza for lunch.

Surprisingly I do now, the Brokeback references do it for me I think!

Isabelle: The first piece is from the exorcist(tubular bells to be exact) and the second piece is from Psycho.(Bernard Herrmann score for the Hitchcock film) So I guess you guys think the film is random, yes? ;D

The person below me has experienced culture shock.  (Care to give a few examples?)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 09, 2006, 07:10:27 pm
True. I'm Chinese by ancestry, born and lived until 10 in Thailand and Laos, then lived in Georgia, Washington, and finally SoCal. You bet I've had many culture shocks. My last moment was at Big Foot Lodge, a bar in Silverlake. It's a hunting theme bar, that at present is very popular among the urban hipsters of LA. Having not done much hunting as a family tradition, it was such a whole other world for me. I didn't get why there was saw dust all over the floor. The wooden horn chandelier struck me as odd too. The moment of shock came when I headed for the men's room. I had had several beers and was rather tipsy. I stumbled in to the restroom area and found two doors; one labled "stag" the other "doe". Being drunk and so slow on the uptake, I could not figure out which one was men's and women's. After all I have absolutely no connection with hunting and hunting terms. So here I am in the most straight and macho of places, and all the sudden I experience the "gayest" moment of my life. My head started singing (I might have been singing out loud too, being kinda drunk) along with Julie Andrews, the song from "The Sound of Music". Ah! That's how I was able to tell which door to choose.

Yup. Very true. I'm not a "horder". I will gladly chuck out things I don't use. The sole exception is clothes, for some reason I find it hard to let clothes go unless they're very ugly and I'm ashamed of buying them in the first place.

False, I don’t know how to roller skates.

the person below me plays Sudoku.
Regarding Sudoku, I played a few as part of the brain teaser challenge we used to have on my last project.  We had a few people enjoy playing brain teaser games, any kind. And we always bought new ones that we collect to work. Everyone’s favorite is the wire puzzles where you have to remove a piece of intertwined wires. Like this one
(http://www.puzzlemaster.ca/puzzles/images/beetle_bug.gif)

We also had a few Japanese puzzle boxes.

False! I normally have TOO much spare time cause all I have is school and that is hardly exhausting. But now I am at work I never stop, and being a honourary vet nurse is tough work: So now I wish I had more time! Plus I really need to talk to one of my friends about something and our quittin' times clash so I never get to see my friend and I am really missing all of my friends.

The person below me knows someone that snorts like Davey Jones in Dead Man's Chest.   :laugh:
I am not sure how he snorts, although I have seen the film but I don't think I was paying attention to those bits cause Johnny Depp wasn't in them. Although I did have a very serious discussion with a friend about how Davy Jones(even if he is a fictional character I can still discuss it as if he was real) is in my blood line and how he should really be Welsh rather than Scottish. ::)

Usually True. I normally do my hair at night and then sleep on it cause that doesn't seem to affect it that much. But when I was in Wales with my school I had to leave it to dry naturally and it looked like I had been dragged through a bush backwards, so yeah, that's the last time I try that!  ;D

I don't usually really cry at movies, but I often get teary. I haven't seen Lion King in years, but I'm sure there were a few tears. I just saw Monsters Inc. again the other day, and there were tears. I'm pretty much a big sap and get tears at everything.  :'(  ;D

(I orange a favorite color!)

The person below me is a big sap like me!  ;D

Hell yes, and at most Disney films too! Well, at least that was true when my kids were very young. Especially Robin Hood.  Now I can take it!
Think I'll be ok next month when I take them to Euro Disneyland? ::)

Ok, sorry about the double post but... What on earth is a sap, please?

The hero of the person below me as a child was Robin Hood (mine was :))

Nope, not that I remember. Although I did have imaginary friends with the names of Disney characters such as peter pan who lived under our dinning table and wanted Pasta for tea every night: I was one messed up kid. So not so much with the Robin Hood, but I did enjoy going to Nottingham when I was little(my mum comes from there) and learning about Robin hood and going to sherwood forest. Of course being bought up on Disney I was surprised that the real Robin Hood wasn't a fox, but I got over it quickly.

The person below me is listening to one of their favourite songs as you type(please elaborate)

Post by: isabelle on July 10, 2006, 05:39:53 pm
Well, more or less, yes! Mostly because my son (12) is very serious about it (tears in his eyes last night  :'(). But this time round I did enjoy it (was totally not in the mood 8 years ago even though France won!).

The person below me has played or plays football, even as an amateur.

false. my good ideas comes while I'm driving, which is a pain, cause my hands aren't free to write the ideas down.

the person below me makes his/her bed every morning.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: cmr107 on July 11, 2006, 01:29:44 pm
Nope, never. Don't see the point. In my dorm room last year I would throw the comforter over the bed to make it flat, because it was really thick and looked terrible if it was all bunched up. Plus, it's pretty, so I wanted to be able to see it. Does that count as making the bed?


Sometimes books make the person below me cry.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Becky on July 11, 2006, 04:45:29 pm
False, my real grandma on my mum's side died even before I was born so I never got to see her. You wanna know how old she was? 40 odd and you wanna know how she died? Heart attack because of all the smoking she did. So if that isn't a warning I don't know what is.

The person below me stood up to someone today.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 11, 2006, 05:03:04 pm
No - I didn't stand up to anyone today, but I didn't need to either.  I don't often find myself in situations requiring me to "stand-up" to anyone.


The person below me wants to re-decorate.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: cmr107 on July 11, 2006, 05:23:48 pm
Yes, I would love to. My house could use some freshening up. I'll be going back to the same dorm room in August, but with a different roommate, so hopefully we can make that nicer than my room was last year. Can't wait!  ;D

Post by: Sheyne on July 12, 2006, 05:25:40 am

No, actually I don't.  I like Christmas for the joy it brings those close to me but for me its a time of the year I just don't like and not just cause of all the hip-fattening goodies available!

The person below me saw "Star Wars" at the cinema when it first came out in the 70's.

Post by: starboardlight on July 12, 2006, 12:31:49 pm
I did. Ah the fun times we had walking to and from school.

the person below me, at least once a week, made a detour from their walk home from school to get some ice cream.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JulietteMontague on July 12, 2006, 12:48:39 pm
True, although it wasn't a big detour.  There was a little store on the route and I was the only one the owner trusted to return the glass bottles of soda.  Everyone else had to drink them on the premises.  I loved those huge nutty buttys in those days!   ;)

The person below me still chews Double Bubble bubblegum.   ;D

the person below me always carry their business card with them everywhere. (I don't. I don't always remember to, but I'm getting new ones printed and they're really cool, so maybe I'll remember to take these along with me.)

Post by: cmr107 on July 12, 2006, 02:13:18 pm
I don't have business cards, but if I did, I would probably carry them around. Keep a stack in my bag or something.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on July 12, 2006, 02:15:58 pm
Sure do.  This is why my alarm clock (my cell phone) is always set to 30 minutes ahead of the time I really need to get up.

The person below me can pin point some defining moments of his/her character.  (Maybe you want to tell us a story of that defining moment.  Sorry if it’s a loaded question.)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ThePirateBride on July 12, 2006, 04:05:19 pm
True.  I was raised in fairytale land with the perfect family, perfect life, no problems and no worries.  I decided to marry the most wonderful man and continue my idyllic life.  When my wedding day came along, my fiancé was killed by a drunk driver on the way to church.  He was dead when I reached the scene and I knew I would never find another perfect partner in crime.  Recently another man entered my realm and although things aren’t working out, I realized I’m going to be just fine on my own.  I accept my self-sufficiency, now and always.   ;)

The person below me has been on a jury.   :)

Post by: JennyC on July 12, 2006, 06:06:02 pm
ThePirateBride, thanks for sharing your story.  Sorry for your loss, but glad that you accept your "self-sufficiency".

Nope, I have not been on a jury.  Definitely don't want to be on jury for a case like Peterson's case.

The person below me sometimes feels the urge to say something, but bites their lips instead because it’s probably the best not to say things you may regret later even with the good intentions.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 12, 2006, 06:21:07 pm
My lips are blissfully free of bite marks.  I don't censor myself much.  If I think something should be said I try hard to find the right way to say it much more than keeping the words to myself...I try to find the good intention inside of me and speak from there.  If I can't find the good intention, then I don't say it.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: cmr107 on July 12, 2006, 06:57:58 pm
Unfortunately, it's kinda true. As some of you know, I still haven't found a summer job. I've been out of school for about 6 weeks now, and I'm sick of it. I'm used to being really busy, so I hate having nothing to do. It doesn't help that about half of my friends are gone for the summer, and the other half have jobs and work a lot. Sorry, enough complaining.

The person below me had a good day today!  ;D

Post by: YaadPyar on July 12, 2006, 07:02:05 pm
I've had a pretty wonderful day actually.  Feel like I've got my mojo back some.  I hate when it just runs off like that - soooooo inconvenient!


The person below me knows they have a special gift/talent/purpose in this life, and even knows what it is (and might reveal it to us here!).  I'm just going to keep asking this until someone answers it the right way!!!!

The person below me knows they have a special gift/talent/purpose in this life, and even knows what it is (and might reveal it to us here!).  

I think one of my gifts/talents is twisting words like so many long, skinny balloons, into shapes that delight.  I don't know if itreaches the level of purpose or calling, and I hope not because I haven't done a whole hell of a lot with it, but it's certainly a talent.  If I may say so.  See Celeste... I entrapped myself in self-tooting.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 13, 2006, 02:34:05 pm
That is true.  I am a big fan of this type of cooking.  Oil and spices, especially in a way that crisps and browns food without overcooking is wonderful!

I don't like any type of wet cooking - boiling, simmering, poaching, steaming...just don't like it at all.  Water seems like a very poor conveyance for flavor.  Why am I telling you this?  I have no idea!

True!  I'm celebrating by making a North-African-inspired curry chicken salad and eating it and grilled vegetables with friends.  So... a thin connection to France there.  We may eat a baguette as well, but our wine will be from New Zealand.

I hadn't really planned on it, but maybe I will (without the wine).

Yes, Celeste, as you know...

And Milli, YES to you too! Haven't watched BBM for weeks (can hardly believe how long it's been). I have just put my daughter to bed (talk of a hectic day), her father's away till tomorrow, and I have a bit of wine left... Just turning this computer off and going to sit in front of my darlings... :D

The person below me can explain what Bastille day is all about (date and names too, please!). 1 or 2 sentences should do the trick.

Post by: DeeDee on July 14, 2006, 09:41:52 pm
Okay, from what I remember, Bastille was a prison, circa 1700's in France.  One day the citizens stormed the prison, where people were sent who diagreed with the King? Queen?  I believe it started the French revolution.   Am I close?


The person below me loves Global History.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 14, 2006, 10:18:31 pm

The person below me has type A+ blood (common as dirt, wonderful red dirt).
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on July 15, 2006, 03:54:01 am
NO! I have O+. So if any of you need a blood trasfusion, PM me, and I'll come flying ;D. I can give blood to everyone else.

Deedee, not bad: Bastille Day indeed refers to July 14th 1789, when that prison called Bastille was stormed and the prisoners were freed (including political prisoners). The unrest had been going on for a while in France, but apparently that event remained symbolic of the beginning of the French Revolution, which overthrew King Louis 16th (and his wife Marie Antoinette).
Side note: there never was a ruling queen in France, women were not allowed to rule!

Oh, isn't it right that O+ is the "universal donor"? I thought so!

Tower of London, Tower of London... I meant a present day prison :laugh:

Petty crime: the worst I ever did was steal a magazine from a Newsagent's when I was 13. The guy looked at me suspiciously, and that was enough to keep me away from that part of town for about 10 years. I was so ashamed of myself I never did anything "wrong" again in my life. :-\

The person below me has visited (or been an inmate in??) a present-day prison.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: henrypie on July 15, 2006, 11:30:48 am
False:  I have never visited a prison, although I have visited a few psychiatric hospitals.  There's an odd sort of overlap there....

O-negative is the universal donor -- it has none of the factors (expressed A, B or +) to which one could be allergic.
Anke, are you a blood donor?

The person below me might get desperate and and grab any old thing to read on the way to the toilet -- Bed Bath and Beyond flyer, blender instructions, husband's impossibly boring computer magazine, etc. -- you know, just in case.

I don't think so.  My life is completely shaped by matters of the soul and G*d, but I can't begin to think of myself as religious.  I think of myself as someone with a certain understanding and experience instead of a belief system.


The person below me is religious....
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ThePirateBride on July 15, 2006, 03:18:54 pm
True, to some extent.  I have the faith requirement fulfilled, however, presenting myself every Sunday at the same time to hear the same thing and make the same responses is my stumbling block.   ;)

I haven't got round to doing this on a daily basis yet, but I start the day with a look at my messages, which usually lead to these boards. And to me, it is like meditative silence: there are no voices here to be heard, but plenty to meditate upon, especially if there is a new message to Yaadpyar's very short stories!

Growing up with my jalopy-addict dad I thought it was normal only to buy used cars, and considering the astronomical cost of owning a car it's sure one way of keeping it more palatable, but I bought myself a new car 'cause there weren't any used Prii.  Now there are but good luck finding one!

If by diet you mean The National Diet of Japan, as in Japan's legislature, which consists of two houses: the House of Representatives and the House of Councillors, then no.  While both houses of the Diet are directly elected under a parallel voting system, and formally select the Prime Minister, I don't serve in either house as I'm a US citizen.  Wow - what complicated questions you ask Anke!!!!

 ;) You're wonderful for saying so. I'll miss you all too.

The person below me has a very unusual name of surname.

 ;) even in Thailand my name is unique. Here's the back story on my name, so far. My aunt named me. It's a word in the ancient Siamese language. The meaning of the word, she has forgotten, and I don't have the resources to find out. Maybe during my trip, I'll spend a day in a library and try to track it down. So far though, there is a modern Thai word that sounds like it. It's Nimith, which means "new beginning", or "tomorrow's sunrise". It's possible the two words are related. The meaning sounds wonderful and all, but then it begs the question "What was wrong with my older brother?"

The person below me has met members of their favorite band.

No, but only because I don't have a favorite band....


The person below me falls in love with songs more than artists.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Katie77 on July 18, 2006, 06:56:03 pm
True...oh so true......

Love the words of songs, and the meanings of them to my life, loves and memories...

If I hear a song i like by a new artist, I then look for more of that artist to see if there are any others that put me in the same mood.....For example...when I heard Norah Jones...Come Away With Me....found more of hers that were great...


The person below me looks at men now and wonders if they are gay....
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 18, 2006, 09:19:52 pm
he he. I don't wonder any more. My gay-dar is actually pretty accurate. I can usually tell. Beside, I don't bother trying to figure it out either, since it's doesn't matter much.

the person below me has secret wish they could try a career other than the one they're working now. (and tell us what that is)

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: YaadPyar on July 18, 2006, 09:55:12 pm
I don't have a secret career wish, but do think my life is moving in interesting new directions, and so think I'll be doing new stuff soon, but not instead of my job.  I want to start volunteering with Hospice again for certain.  A few other things on the horizon, but nothing to tell yet.


The person below me developed gay-dar before they even knew what they were picking-up from others.

Post by: ednbarby on July 19, 2006, 09:22:51 am
False.  I don't watch much TV in general, but when I do, it's just "Lost," "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," (though lately that's been vaguely pissing me off), and sports.  Well, and Noggin (educational TV from Canada) when I'm watching with Will.

The person below me is in kind of a crappy mood today.

Post by: henrypie on July 19, 2006, 03:50:11 pm
FALSE!!

I love much, much else of Depeche Mode's, and "Personal Jesus" is actually not one of my favorites.

Depeche Mode is the band, by the way, some of whose members I have met.  Oh Lord, I love them so.  But you know Celeste, it is thrilling to hear of another's affection even for a song that's not one of my favorites.

Nope, I infact didn't end up having lunch cause I was having too much fun. There was this giant waterfight after school cause it was a half day. But it was so fun and I of course got soaked to the skin cause all the guys have it in for me for being evil to them for the most of this year, and this was there only chance to get me back.

Post by: starboardlight on July 19, 2006, 08:32:25 pm
almost true. for the longest time, I refused to get an AC, so i was running fans every summer. this year, I broke down and got an energy star AC and guess what, my electric bill is less than when i was without it, and this year's been hotter than the last two. hrm! all that suffering and I was wasting more energy! The AC is great, it's keeping my loft comfortable, but not entirely cool.

the person below me knows to defrost their freezer every so often to keep it running efficiently.

I'm answering this just 'cause, and the answer is yes.  It's an amazing thing.  The allergy pharmaceuticals business would be in bad shape if everyone knew about the magic of the neti pot!



The person below me has both everyday flatware and sterling silverware.   :D


Nope.  I just have a wonderful brushed stainless steel set wtih the name of "Now & Zen".  It is sensuously curved and very heavy, and I love it.

I wish! I mean there were some indiscretions that are now wonderful memories, but my past is not nearly full of them. I was too much a coward in my 20's. I'm trying to catch up now though.

Sort of true. I love cats, and have had at least one my whole life, but am ever so slightly allergic to them. I also found out the hard way that I'm allergic to rabbits (my cousin had a pet rabbit when I was little). Oh, and I'm allergic to dust mites, but I don't love those, so I don't mind that one.

Post by: YaadPyar on July 20, 2006, 10:55:39 pm
I can't remember the last time I wore a raincoat.  But everyone was soaked coming into work 'cause the rain fell hard and sideways, and umbrellas don't protect against that.  So it would have been a good idea to have a raincoat actually!

Post by: henrypie on July 22, 2006, 10:40:28 am
False: I didn't get my license till I was 17, or a year older than is legal.  However, I was a pretty good driver by the time I got my license, having had my learner's permit for a long time.  In fact, I think it's absolutely nuts that 16-year-olds can drive in this country.  There are a few other nutty things about this country....


The person below me has seen Citizen Kane on the big screen.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: JennyC on July 22, 2006, 11:32:03 am
Nope :(  I actually have never seen the movie.  (I know I know...)  I have seen a movie about making Citizen Kane, but not the actual movie.  I know it's No. 1 on the list of the best movies, but is it really worth that title?  If so, I will get the DVD.

The person below me has been put in a very arkward situation lately by a friend/ family member.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: henrypie on July 22, 2006, 03:10:06 pm
True.  My stepmother tried to invite her son along to my small birthday dinner recently.  She laments that he and I (and her other children) are "not closer."  This is very annoying to me.  We're all adults; we were teenagers with independent lives when we became step-siblings; we get along fine; what more does she expect, and how did she think it was okay to do her own inviting to my party?  And she thinks I'm a sourpuss-hardass for telling her it would not be okay to invite him.  (Fortunately I nipped it in the bud so he never found out.)

Very, very vexing.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

I'm afraid this will be a "no". I have been watching the "Lord of the Rings" films with my 12 year old son this week, and didn't enjoy it at all. Not my kind of movie at all. And so serious!

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game

I have no idea what that means. How were you "receiving replies"? Were you getting them emailed to you?

the person below me will explain what I'm not understanding.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: isabelle on July 23, 2006, 01:14:48 pm
Well yes, don't you? I get an E-mail telling me so and so has posted a new reply to such and such thread (that I've either been reading only, or posting in), and then I must click on the link provided in order to get on the actual thread at the place of the new post. If I only read the reply post on my E-mail without going onto the Bettermost forum, I stop receiving the new replies. Which might be what I did, but I do not think so.

The person below me will tell me whether I am the only one getting E-mails notifying me of the new replies to threads I've read or posted in.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 23, 2006, 01:56:23 pm
I don't really know if you're the only one who get email notifications. I see how it works, now. If I hit the "notify" button, then BetterMost will keep track of that thread and let me know when a new reply is posted. I forgot that this is a feature. It's very useful. I haven't used it. Did you by any chance or accident, turned off the notification?

I have had manicures done by nail technicians, and always prefer to do my own.  I've got some skill in making sure my mails are well-cared for, and don't really like any part of having someone else do it except for the massage part.  Sorry Nicky - can't convince you to re-think your opinoin.

True! I love the smell of new books most, especially a new novel where the smell is on every page. Although I hate the smell of new cars. And of course being me the smell of new money is especially appealing. ;D

I was at an emotional cross roads just after seeing the film, or rather BBM jolted me to confront myself and thus puts me at that cross roads. I have decided, however, what to do, and I'm heading toward living the life I've imagined for myself. I'm confronting my fears everyday and I'm getting a little better at it every time.

the person below me will tell us about the last time he/she fell in love.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: henrypie on July 26, 2006, 09:50:14 am
True!

That would be with Ruediger.  I love him because he is affectionate, funny, smart, silly in just the right ways, curious, and did I mention sexy and cute as a button in a masculine, strong-featured way?

But that's not "how I fell in love" with him.  I don't know how.  We talked at a wedding; I babbled; he listened; he rolled his eyes and made me nervous; I babbled some more and thought "Oh my God, I'm babbling."  One of the things that impresses me daily about him is his facility and creativity with English, which is not his native tongue.  How can this be?  He whips out funny substitute names for things when he can't quite remember the name, for example "crepe myrtle" (the tree) once became "crap maple."  And the tv show "Crossing Jordan" became "Chasing Gordon."  Oh man, I love him.


The person below me believes dreams are a great way of working out the subconscious tension of monogamy.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 26, 2006, 10:05:12 am
Subconscious tension?  What about the conscious tension?  I find daydreaming/fantasizing helps relieve that quite a bit, too.  I know I'm only serving to self-medicate, but dammit, it's so much fun.

The person below me has an Excedrin headache.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: cmr107 on July 26, 2006, 11:16:37 am
No, I don't really get headaches, and when I do, they're not too bad.

The person below me is sad and worried about Chris (mod of Chez Tremblay).  :'(
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: henrypie on July 26, 2006, 11:17:24 am
Yes, I am very concerned about Chris.  C'mon boy!

(btw Barb, have we talked about a possible correlation between sleep distubances, like night-terrors and narcolepsy, with migraine headaches?  Do you get migraines?)


The person below me has invented animals in her/his dreams.  For example, the Delta Cat.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 26, 2006, 11:40:59 am
I usually never remember my dreams, so I don't know if I have invented animals while dreaming. I did invent a new hotel concept though. If only I could remember all the details.

btw, Sarah, thank you for sharing your story about Ruediger. "Crap maple" lol. He sounds like such a cute and fun guy to be around.

the person below me still keeps a memento of their high school prom (or non-American equivalent).
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on July 26, 2006, 11:46:59 am
True.  I still have one prom picture from my high school boyfriend's junior prom and senior ball, as it was called in our school.  And he was the only one who really knew me at all.  Ah, first love.

Sarah - yes, I do have migraine headaches, but not severe enough to require prescription medication.  I get a kinder, gentler version of those.  But they do affect my vision - things do take on an "aura" right before I get one.  The vision disturbance is more unsettling than the headache itself, usually, so I'm lucky there.  And yes, I've read of a correlation between those and night terrors.  Makes perfect sense, really.  Sadly, Will woke up last night screaming at about 1:00 a.m. and was inconsolable for about a half hour.  Man, I hope he hasn't inherited all that from me, but I worry he probably has.   :'(

The person below me appreciates his or her relative good health today more than usual in light of what we've learned about our dear Chris.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: henrypie on July 26, 2006, 01:48:09 pm
Oh my goodness yes, I am grateful every day that I can get up and walk, and especially in light of Chris's dire situation.

(Barb-- my mom is a full-strength narcoleptic and full-strength migraine-haver, and I inherited little innocent baby versions of both -- so there's a good shot for Will, I should think.)

The person below me loves the book Mr. Rabbit and the Lovely Present by Charlotte Zolotow and Maurice Sendak.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on July 26, 2006, 02:13:28 pm
TRUE!!! Maurice Sendak is one of my heroes. He's is one of the people who inspired me to go into design and illustration. My style is nothing like his, but my imagination is free to go where they may because of his.

the person below me has a favorite Children's book store that they visit every so often. (you have to check out Storyopolis if you ever find yourself in LA)
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: henrypie on July 26, 2006, 03:46:09 pm
No, I don't have a favorite children's bookstore, but I do go every so often to the children's department of the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore -- the main library downtown.  It's a magnificent 1930 building, and the children's department has a marble goldfish pond at one end and a fireplace at the other.

The person below me has recently seen a nest of baby birds.

Sorry - never heard of it.  Going back to the question about children's books, I love, love, love the Phantom Tollbooth.  An all-time favorite along with The Giving Tree and The Little Prince.


The person below me knows that:

"What!"

"Draw me a sheep!"

There was a really beautiful one here a couple of hours ago: amazing oranges and pinks streaked the sky and clashed with the grey as the lightning danced across the sky and then evetually struck down to earth, but no rain! I knew that rain dance wouldn't work! ;D

The person below me knew the answer to Yaadpyar's question even though they didn't answer because they thought it was too late:

Yes, and it's on the (only)* intelligent* free tv channel we get in France: Arte (French-German channel), and the programme's called Karambolage; they take a German or French word/expression and tell its history (I love etymology), and also talk about the differences between Germany and France, and there is a lot of humor.

Nope. I'm gonna be outside for the most part. My dad's in town, so we're running errands tomorrow. Then Sunday I promised to help Kirk with his final move in to his place in the LB.

btw I've never heard of the word "teetotal". From C's response, I gather it means "not drinking alcohol"?

nope. that I haven't. and I keep forgetting to count. although, in general I just freeze up when I get upset, so there's really not much danger of me saying or writing things when I'm upset.

False. I have tried. And while many would call it a gateway drug, my reaction is "It was fun, but not all that interesting." I certainly would not go out of my way to do it again. For me the effect slowed reality down. I felt like I was in slow motion world. The heaviest effect I had; I felt like I was seeing life one frame at a time, which made it hard to follow what people were talking about when I would try to have a conversation. I found that I was not very social when I was high. I preferred to just sit and enjoy music, instead. Yeah, I'm already a recluse by nature. A drug that makes me complete anti-social is not especially good for me.

I love the Card Captor Sakura series from Japan. The mythology aspect is great fun, but it's also a sweet tale of a girl coming of age, dealing with love and attraction. There's also a side story of homo-erotic love between her older brother and his best friend. Over all, it's just great fun.

LOL @ Sarah.  Exactly why I'm not a gambler, either.

And Nipith, I have had one of those experiences.  Only difference was it was a "What happens in Daytona stays in Daytona" experience.   :o
(Thank God.)

No, no thrift store visits this past weekend.  But I did find a great toy for Will for 10 bucks at Toys 'R Us, though.  A "full" mini-drum set, complete with stool, foot pedal, cymbal and "kid-friendly" drumsticks (i.e., rubberized so not too hatefully loud - parent-friendly, really).  Now he has all the elements of a rock band except for the rock stars.  Oh, well.  You can't have everything.

False.  But I do have two sets of 1000-count cotton sheets that are to die for.  Nothing like slipping into those at the end of a long day, especially when they're fresh out of the laundry that day and extra, EXTRA soft.  They always feel cool - that's one thing I imagine silk sheets wouldn't do for me.

If the bars are tasty and you feel they are better for you than other snack bars....enjoy them......but I think the "peaceworks" thing, is a sales publicity thing, and not as good as it seems.

True.  Like the song goes, wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face...  It's one of those days.  I actually just got my hair trimmed in my current "long layers" style last Wednesday and my stylist went a little overboard on the length (or lack thereof).  It'll take a few weeks for it to come into its own again, I think.  Then I'll love it for about five days.  Then I'll want to get it trimmed again.

Okay, I googled it, but still can't figure out what Tim Tam Explosions are. Some kind of candy? Please explain!

Yeah, I know how to be alone. Never understand people who say they get bored when they are alone. I think I could be in solitary confinement and still not be bored. Active mind, I guess.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on August 01, 2006, 11:13:56 am
I got a taste of Tim Tams when my Aussie cousiin came to visit. It is a sweet snack consisting of two biscuits with a layer of chocolate cream between, than the whole thing is covered in chocolate. See the link below.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Tam
The "Tim Tam Explosion" as she called it (Wiki calls it "Tim Tam Slam") is when you bite one corner off, then bite the opposite corner off. Then use the biscuit like a strawl, you suck up some hot tea or cocoa, so that the hot liquid fills out the Tim Tam. Then you pop the whole thing into your mouth. As you bite down the melting chocolate cream, the melting biscuit and the tea, all explode inside you mouth. It's heavenly!

as for the AC. nope I broke down a while back.

the person below me now wants to try some Tim Tams.

Nope.  Just one.  Same old stupid one I'm in all the time.  Solid.

The other day a few of us at work were discussing how we'd like to be interred when we die (don't ask me why - you don't want to know).  My next-cube neighbor said she wants to be cremated and have her ashes placed in a lovely urn and left in her house.  She *really* loves that house.  I said I don't mind if I'm cremated, but please take my ashes ANYWHERE but Florida.  I get the feeling I ain't getting out of here alive, so it's my only hope.

False.  I like my water for swimming to be refreshing.  But not cold.  Ideal temps for me range from about 76-82F.  Our pool is up to 94F.  I won't go in it.  It's beyond being just like bath water - it's like hot tub water now.  Even Himself last night goes, "OK, I guess I should take the solar cover off for a while."  YA THINK?

I used to go swimming in the lake our house was on as soon as the temp got up to 68F.  Back then, I'd have thought 76-82F was like bath water.

To be honest, I don't have a clue. I looked up the German Wikipedia and it says that popcorn is either sugared or caramelized or salted. So sugared is different from caramelized. If people make popcorn at home, they usually just sprinkle sugar on it. I've tried it, but don't like it because the sugar does not adhere to the popcorn and most of it gathers at the bottom of the bowl.
If you buy popcorn it is either sweet or (rarely) salty. But I don't have a clue how popcorn machines manage it to make the whole popcorn taste sweet. Maybe you are right and they caramelizise it.

Post by: JennyC on August 07, 2006, 11:49:50 pm
No.  Don't have a funny animal as a pet.  When I was young I raised silkworm for a few seasons, not sure if that counts as funny animal (probably not).

The person below me only drinks bottled water.

Well I usually drink water out of a bottle, but I'd be totally broke if I bought a new bottle every time. I drink a lot of water, so I refill bottles a lot.

False, I don't really use IM.


The person below me has a "crap table."  This is a table that's supposed to be a work table but it takes on a mountain shape and has to be cleared before work can commence.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Penthesilea on August 08, 2006, 09:59:58 am
OMG, so true! This is my desk. I never write anything at my desk, because there is simply no space. It's not only covered, there's a mountain of unnecessary things on it. I clean it every now and then, but it lasts only a couple of days until it is magically back to it's usual shape  :-\
When I have to write something, I use mostly the kitchen table.


The person below me has seen other movies with Heath or Jake after BBM, only because one of them is in it (I saw Donnie Darko two days ago for this reason, but actually liked it a lot).

Post by: Becky on August 08, 2006, 10:23:48 am
Many a time for Jake! I mean have you seen Lovely and Amazing?! There is only one reason to see that film and that is Jake. I haven't done it with Heath yet though, but I am sure next time a Heath film comes out here I will be on it...Trust me!  ;D

Sure do.  We grew up together, 6 of us.  Have known each other for over 25 years or longer. One guy disappeared on us for a quite some years after college and no one knew what was going on with him.  He resumed contact with us last year.  We picked up where we left off as if he never left us even when we have taken on different directions in our life. In some way, I feel that they are like my family to me.

Yep, have been doing that for some time.

absolutely terrified. I get paralyzed with fear just at the site. Don't expect to see Snakes on a Plane for that reason.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on August 08, 2006, 09:58:30 pm
I wish I were!  I *love* Amelie.  Absolutely one of my favorite movies.  I just adore the character.  I love how she survived her awful childhood by creating a rich internal life for herself, and how she just assumes she's the only one who will ever live in that world.  But then it turns out there's another, very much like her...  LOVE it.  And I love how she's always secretly doing things for other people.  It's just a delight from start to finish.

Oh... the game...

Billy Sive is the fiction character in "The Front Runner".  Highly recommend the book.  Since we all love Brokeback Mountain, I think the chance is you will like "The Front Runner".

Nope.  On the contratary I have seen Caché, which has received high reviews, but the movie is weird.  I thought I figured out the big mystery, but a lot things don't add up to my theory.  Maybe I don't get the movie after all.  Anyway I had high hope for the movie, but the movie fell flat for me.

The person below me read their friends blogs.

False. I don't read any blogs at all. And I don't know anyone who writes one.


The person below me was recently pleasantly surprised by a movie they were fairly certain would suck.  But didn't.  At all.

Do you allude to me and Donnie Darko? I sure never would have watched it if it weren't for Jake. But I had not thought it would suck, because I read many positive comments about it before watching it. But it was definately a weird movie. But weird in a good way.

The person below me thinks Katharine Hepburn was drop-dead gorgeous.

Yes, I do, she was beautiful and such a great actress and she too had a love story, with Spencer Tracy, that was nearly as touching as Ennis and Jack.

I am not sure if they are necessarily secrets.  I have quite a few things and many thoughts that I don’t share with others.  Just don’t feel the need to and some things are best to just remain private.

The person below me sometimes falls into sleep while watching TV.

I dont get annoyed but my husband gets annoyed, because i often fall asleep watching tv...and i also snore......so he has to wake me up and send me to bed so he can hear the tv..........true story.....I am a terrible snorer....in fact if my six year old grandson sleeps over, he wont sleep with me, cause my snoring keeps him awake.....so any ideas from anyone how to cure snoring would be very much appreciated.......

anyway, back to what we are supposed to be doing here.....

I used to, but after some incidents of apnea--which is truly terrifying (you wake up feeling like your drowning)--I trained myself to sleep on my side. That works. I think there's a commercial product (D-snore?) a spray that can be used.

False, I am a summer person. For a week now we have cold and rainy weather in Germany and I hate it. Had to put a sweater on today, nearly froze my a** off only with a t-shirt.
But since the calender says "summer" I'm stubborn and stick to my flip flops, no matter how cold my feet get.

The person below me is looking forward to dinner today and will tell us the reason (nice company? favourite dish? cool beer? )

Post by: ednbarby on August 10, 2006, 04:51:19 pm
True.  And I'm three for three of your reasons.  I bought some very nice filets mignon yesterday and they have been marinating overnight in my favorite citrus marinade.  Gonna grill 'em tonight to perfection, as I am The Grillmaster (seriously - I require that everyone who ever has my flame-grilled steaks call me that) and have 'em with some baked sweet potatoes and fresh asparagus drizzled in a lemon/butter mixture and grilled on a skewer.  With cold beer.  And in the company of my husband and son, who has (thank GOD) been much better-behaved lately and is eating at the table with us regularly like the little gentleman that he is.  My son has been behaving much better, too.  :)

Nooooo way.  I will sleep throroughly tonight.  It took me years to realize that my only reliable cold-fighter is eight hours of sleep per night.  Not that I don't skimp once in a while, but all-nighters are for true emergencies.

What the heck does this mean? "to pull an all-nighter" ???
From the answer I'd say to stay up all night without sleep.

Half true. I love going on vacation, but I was never long enough away from home to enjoy coming back. Vacations are always too short. The exception from the rule: when I go on a trip without my family (approx. once in every 5 years), I love coming home.

Post by: moremojo on August 15, 2006, 06:05:26 pm
False. I haven't flown in over twenty years. Confession time: I have a nearly paralyzing fear of flying, despite the fact that I have done so maybe five times in my life. So I become a bit like Ennis--not much of a traveller.

Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on August 16, 2006, 11:25:59 am
True.  I can remember the name of my first crush, even: Teddy.  We were four.  I can still see his face just the way it was, clear as day.  Big, big, dark, dark eyes, eyelashes about a mile long, black, and thick. Thick, black eyebrows.  Thick, brown hair.  Beautiful face.  We would sit on the floor in one of our kitchens, playing in silence for hours.  Our mothers later told us they never saw anything like it.  I never saw him again after the age of five.  The name of the first boy I ever kissed was Frank (if you don't count Kirk, who grabbed me and kissed me while I was tutoring him in spelling in the second grade).  I was 13, he was (gasp) 17.  The name of my first love is Mark.  I was 15, he was 16.  Most passionate love: Joe.  I was 22, he was 24.  Last love (so far): Ed.  23, 29.  Now 41, 47.

The person below me can remember the first phone number they ever had.

Indeed the moon would be alovely place to be sometimes.  Space and time to explore the things that are intruded upon by life on this planet.  But I know my oxygen supply would run out before I was ready to leave.

The person below me states would want this more than enough oxygen to breath.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Front-Ranger on August 17, 2006, 11:18:11 am
Let's see, I'll take a stab at this. If I didn't have enough oxygen to breathe, then that would mean I'm either underwater or way up high...on top of a mountain!! But since I live halfway up the side of a mountain anyway, that would be all right with me! And the place I would most like to visit in the world is Tibet, where there is not enough air to breathe, but the people have adapted. The thing I would need more than air is sunlight, you can be pretty miserable if you don't have sunlight on top of a mountain!!

True.  And in the mid 90s, I went through a phase of going to used record sales at flea markets and art shows every chance I got looking for the albums I grew up on and buying them when I found them for 50 cents or a buck a piece.  I now have a collection of 70s and 80s era LPs in mint condition, and every now and then when I feel like hearing the music in its truest, richest form (scratches and all), I throw one on.

I have some clothes which I don't wear anymore, but I don't give them away because they mean something to me: I still have a denim jacket my husband gave to me as a birthday gift, maybe 18 (or so) years ago. I don't remember which year it was, but I remember the day very gladly. My husband made this day and this present very special for me. And so I keep the jacket, although I will never again fit in it.

I also keep a jacket with military look I wore as a teenager. I loved it because my parents hated it like hell. They thought it was "not fitting for a girl". I should have worn something more stylish, more nicely  - and so I loved this military jacket. Don't know why I still keep it, my father being long dead and my mother having dementia. No need to keep it anymore, my rebellious teenager daughter years long gone. Maybe that's why.

And I keep the sweatshirt my husband wore the night our first child was born. I will always remember how I pulled and tore on this shirt, it's a wonder it wasn't ripped apart  :).


The person below me is a sucker for sunglasses.

I dont secretly watch her, I enjoy her show.....Not keen on the room and people makeover ones, but some of the "in depth" stories I have found very amazing and interesting.......

Is there something going on over there in the U.S. against Oprah?....I thought she was very popular over there.....Can someone tell me what the stigma is about watching Oprah?


the person below me secretly watches soap operas on tv........

Oprah. Ah. Well. Oprah is Oprah. We have a love hate relationship with her. She's fabulous, but she's Oprah. It's hard to explain. There's a line in Adam and Steve that sums it up: "Oprah has made it impossible for me to have a long term relationship with anyone but Oprah."

Yeah, I'll everyonce in a while watch Dynasty when it shows up on the Soap network. And I dip into the telenovellas every once in a while--but I'm not addicted or a regular viewer of any soaps. Unless you count Desperate Housewives.

The person below me is listening to a thunder storm right now, like I am . . .

Oh I wish, we certainly need some rain over here in Australia....but it is the last month of winter here, so hopefully we will be listening to thunderstorms in a few months time  too.....

Thank you for the info on Oprah.....is it what we call in Australia "the tall poppy syndrome", where someone gets so big, that people like to pull them back down?....

And by the way, I would consider Desperate Housewives a soap....but what the hell, if you enjoy it, watch it.....We have been getting adverts of the forthcoming tv novellas on our pay tv (cable), I assume they are short stories made into short movie type shows, are they?

And by the way, dont feel funny about Desperate Housewives or Dynasty....I turn the tv on at 4.30 every afternoon and watch "Bold and the Beautiful"...(for some dramatic, true to life stories... ;)  )

the person below me loves the smell of the rain when it hits the dust.......

tall poppy syndrome kind of explains it, but really, Oprah is so much in a category by herself (kind of like Bill Gates) it doesn't tell the whole story. Maybe it's impossible to explain to a non-American. Part of it has to do with her do-gooderism, which is completely admirable, but then you have the things like when she gives everyone in the audience a new car. It's VERY American . . . .

A telenovella is a Spanish-language soap opera. Most of us in the US have at least one Spanish-language television station on their cable network. My satellite system offers several. Telenovellas are wonderfully cheesy and WAY over the top . . . (it helps to speak Spanish, of course)

No, haven't met anyone on this board in person; I hope I do some day.

Katie, didn't want you to lose your place in the sequence, so let me respond here with an emphatic yes. I've had the pleasure of meeting three of my fellow BetterMostians in person, after first having communications with one of them on the board. I've meet sfericsf, ptannen, and ohiomyown, all charming folks who are wonderful assets to BetterMost and the Brokeback community at large.

I will leave nic's next "person below me" question in place...

No, but I really want to. I'm a college student who is undecided about everything except the fact that I want to travel. Study abroad for at least a semester would be good, but I'd also like to live in another country after graduation.


The person below me is easily entertained, and happy to be so.

Yes, and yes! I feel truly blessed to be happy with so many of the simple things in life--beautiful sunsets, a soft spring breeze, the crisp, somehow ancient nip of autumn air. My idea of the perfect date is sitting before a good movie on TV, popcorn bowl on the coffee table, and my date's hand in mine on the soft, cozy sofa. I'm a man of simple tastes, to be sure, but it's all good!

Yes, fortunately or unfortunately, that is me. I'm not a crowds person. I do much better one on one, or in small gatherings. I seem unusually sensitive to sensory overload, and really big parties and other crowded situations tend to overwhelm me.

ASIDE: In the 70s, when "what sign are you?" was a standard pick up line, I could answer "One of the two signs that you aren't gonna like."

The answer would come back, "Scorpio?"

"No," I'd say.

"Yep." Then they'd make a face and go "euuuuugh . . . ." Never failed.

I wonder if Chinese astrological signs might not become a new pick up line for the 00s (how do we refer to the first decade of the twenty-first century?). A lot more knowledge of this alternate (or complementary) astrological system has been attained in the West in recent years, and I for one have been pretty impressed with my own profile--it really seems to ring true (I am a Goat, by the way, or Ram, or Sheep, depending on the translation one is using).

As a further aside, Ennis and Jack, if born (as many surmise) in 1943, were Goats as well.

The person below me loves the name Ennis Del Mar. Just the name itself (I do, and did even before I saw the movie. Especially Ennis is such a beautiful name. And I like the fact that it means island. So fitting for the character).

You bet I do! Never encountered the name Ennis before 'Brokeback', but I imagine we'll see a few more Ennises in the world in the forthcoming generations. I heard a beautiful Celtic-inflected instrumental piece yesterday called "Dark Island", and I think that is a wonderful description of our Ennis (Ennis being of Celtic origin, meaning 'island').

Definitely not enough during the work-week. I usually get by on about six hours, sometimes less, though I'm more of a nine-hours person in regard to really feeling rested. The problem is I'm a night owl--I feel my best emotionally, mentally, and physically in the evenings, and so don't want to go to bed when that would actually be in my best interests. I tend to catch up on my rest on the weekends (which I practically live for).

Oh please do tell.

I have not bought anything particularly embarrassing on a credit card, although on my statements the address for the Target I frequent always comes up, instead of "Putty Hill Avenue" as "Potty Hill Avenue."  I think that's cute.  Potty Hill, not far from Flushing Meadow.

The person below me, when traveling via Southwest airline, and has been unprepared or unfortunate enough to be in a boarding group other than "A," nerdily camps out at beginning of group "B" or "C," sitting on the floor doing crossword puzzles until blessed boarding time.

I have to admit I've done a variation of that many times.  When they call out rows on other airlines, and I know mine will probably be included in the next announcement, I try to oh-so-nonchalantly meander towards the general vicinity of the ticket taker so I'll be the very first to board for my row.  I have a real need to hurry up and wait, I guess.  (And why is it that even when you do that, you get on the plane and people are still blocking your way who are seated several rows ahead of yours???)

And Katie, we have one of those expensive cushion-topped mattresses.  And I still feel my back and knees creaking when I get up in the morning.  It's really sad.

You bet...it has kept me alive. I'm using diet in its broadest sense as meaning the food one eats (sorry, I hope you can forgive my facetiousness). But no, I've actually never been on a diet in the weight-losing meaning, unless you can count the grief-induced period immediately post-Brokeback, when, like Ennis, I couldn't stomach many slices of cherry cake, let alone much of anything else. And yes, I lost twenty pounds for it...thank you, Ang and Annie, and all the rest!

This was after by BBM experience, when my boyfriend got married. I thought maybe I should too. To my shrink's credit, he was supportive, but ever so gently steered me toward acceptance. This was, uh, 40 years ago!

The person below me realized they had same-sex attractions from early childhood . . .

Does the age of nine count? If so, then yes, that would describe me. That was the age when I had my first infatuation on another boy, a fellow classmate of mine in the fourth grade. Even before that, I remember identifying with girls and girl's traditional interests much more strongly than with boys'. I know that that is not a necessary corollary to male homosexuality, but it did seem, in my case, to be a harbinger of things to come.

The person below me loves vanilla better than chocolate.

Absolutely YES! Call me crazy (you won't be the first), but I don't like chocolate at all. My friends all make fun of me, but there you have it. I love vanilla.


The person below me eats meals at weird times.

True! Over the past few weeks I have been on a summer break and seeing as most days I didn't get up until 12ish I would have breakfast then, go out and then when I came back in I would have a lunch style snack and then end up having dinner at about 10pm. Very strange, but now I am back at school it is back to waking up at 7:00 again, damn it! ;)

The person below me would have laughed if someone had told them a year ago that they would be on something like BM.

Yeah probably. A year ago I had a lot on my mind - I was just starting college!


The person below me sometimes tries to do too many things at once, leaving no time for relaxing.  :-\

yeah, sometimes. but usually it's the opposite for me. I always like to plan for things to take more time than they really do.

Caipirinha is a Brazilian cocktail, with a simple but distinctly tangy sweet taste. Really good for warm summer evenings.

Sounds very nice, but I have never tried it........


the person below me enjoys hearing about different foods and drinks from other countries
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: starboardlight on September 09, 2006, 01:46:46 pm
I definitely do. If anyone listen to podcasts you should check out KCRW's Good Food.
http://www.kcrw.com/show/gf

Even more than hearing about food and drinks, the person below me enjoys trying them. (lucky me, being in LA, I there's actually a lot of opportunities).
btw, tell us what regions (other than your own) are some of your favorites, cuisine-wise.

I dont eat nothin' I havent tried before.......but reminds of a time my hubby had to go to Korea for a working trip, he was taken out to dinner, and treated to a Korean banquet by his Korean colleagues, he told me he had a bottle of coke beside him, and with every mouthful of food, he had to wash it down with a swig of coke...didnt want to offend anyone.....


the person below me gives the house an extra clean, when visitors are expected
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: cmr107 on September 10, 2006, 01:11:15 am
Sometimes. Depends on the visitor. And actually I don't really do that anymore, not that I'm here in a dorm. Visitors can be expected at any given time, and no matter how messy my room is, I know there are always going to be messier rooms.


The person below me is afraid they're going to be sick soon. (It seems like half the people I know are sick right now. I'm fine so far!)

well I have had a sinus headache all day!! LOL...they can turn bad on you in a heartbeat! so yeah, worried about a sinus infection and popping decongestants!!

the person below me is hoping they come out with a deluxe DVD of BBM for Christmas!
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: Katie77 on September 10, 2006, 05:01:57 am
Yes a deluxe edition would be great.....even better would be a remake of the original movie, with many more love scenes, more reunions kisses, and and "lived happily ever after" ending......


The person below me, gets depressed when they think of all the hoo haa about Christmas.....(I find it hard to get around all the fuss and bother for just a 24 hour day)

I hate that it starts so early (usually late Sept / early Oct here in th UK  ::)). My Mum says that when she was a kid everything was a done in a big rush about 3 days before Christmas and it made it really exciting. Yeah, I hate the ethos of the modern Christmas.

The person below me has phoned someone they love today...

Post by: Katie77 on September 10, 2006, 06:37:33 pm
Yes, I phoned my wonderful girlfriend who lives 800 miles away....she is upset about a love relationship on the brink of ending, and I have been trying to give her some positive and supportive words of wisdom........


the person below me has a close friend, that you know, needs you, without even contacting you......

Yes I do. And we've only been friends for 5 years! She's like my twin.

You can count yourself blessed then to have such a good friend....I have one like that too, and we love each other unconditionally.....

Something exciting,?....well, it was good, does that count....I rang the airline, to cancel a booking that I had made for my son, the fare was $400....when I rang to cancel, I was told there is no refund on that grade ticket...I thought f***).....then she said," just a minute, apparently it looks like there has been a schedule change to your original departure times, which voids the "no refund" policy, so a full refund will be credited to your credit card"......

Phew!...that was good..someone was looking after me today......


the person below me, uses plane travel a lot.......
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: cmr107 on September 13, 2006, 04:04:25 pm
Well, being a student, time and money are big issues for traveling. I wish I traveled more. I/we usually end up driving when we do travel though. I'm trying to plan on studying abroad soon though! I'm sure I'll take a plane for that!

I've been there twice as a student for very brief visits. But that was ten years ago, and I don't know the City very well.
The Euro Brokie Meeting this weekend will be my third trip to London. Yeehawww!

The person below me has been to Bavaria and drunk a "Maß" (= 1 Liter) beer.  ;D

Post by: moremojo on September 15, 2006, 05:15:40 pm
You bet I'm a teetotaller! Never been a fan of alcohol--don't find its taste pleasant, and have gotten sick from it. Getting sick from red wine when you're twelve (imbibing it because you think it's "cool") is enough to turn you off from the stuff for a lifetime. I have been buzzed once, and was glad to have the experience, but also found it scary, because I truly thought nothing of the feelings of those around me. I have seen something of the power of alcohol to destroy people's lives. Dangerous stuff, that still gets trivialized in our culture.

Okay...off my soapbox. The person below me has climbed their country's highest mountain.

Edit:A correction of a minor typo. Those things drive me batty if I leave them unmodified.

Yeah, same as me...dont like the taste and when I did, it made me sick.......

as far as our highest mountain....well compared to some it would probably amount to a "hill"...but our highest mountain is Mt.Kosiusko......one of the only areas in australia where it snows in the winter.....but I havent climbed it.....

Absolutely true.  Many of my posts are edited because I notice typos in them when I read them later, and like Scott, I can't stand the thought of them.

Not only cabbage , but brussel sprouts , peas (!)  too  ! As if nyone did not know that !

The person below me loves the fresh smell of the earth after it has rained.
Title: Re: "The Person Below Me" Game
Post by: ednbarby on September 17, 2006, 01:19:29 pm
So true.  And I love that metallic smell right before it starts, too.  We're in our rainy season down here in South Florida, so I'm enjoying those aromas a lot lately.  I also love the way the trees look right after a heavy rain - how the water darkens the trunks and makes them stand out that much more against the battleship grey sky.

The person below me loves thunder storms.

the person below me has many pets and animals in their life

Quite true! My sister and I (we live together, by the way, and are actually very good friends) have three adorable, if sometimes pesky cats (Zoot, Smooch, and Chelsea, all spayed females--never been mothers), and we sometimes feed an apparently abandoned gray male cat (not neutered) who shows up in our backyard occasionally. We also have a colony of raccoons in our walls (that is really crazy and annoying, and I don't what we are going to have to do to solve that problem), and occasional visits from scrounging opossums in our backyard at night. So we have quite the menagerie at our menage!

The person below me prefers oranges over apples.

That must be some mighty fine binoculars you have (Aguirre would be envious), to make you able to look into my bathroom all the way from Australia to Germany  ;D
*sigh* Must be around 9 loads of a full washing machine I have waiting here for me. Plus two loads on the clothesline, one in the tumbler and one in the washing machine, wich are both finished now and waiting for me to go on with my work.
