Yes, and I do.

Does excessive noise make you tired or can you tune it out?

It depends on what I'm doing. When I am reading, it's shut out automatically. Paul in a book no longer resides in this plane. When I write, do paperwork or try to communicate, it wears me down.


Do ypu still notice what goes on around you, when you're reading a book?

Sometimes, usually when I can't get to sleep. I prefer to reading sitting, though... or relaxing in a hot bath.


Do you read one book at a time or more than one?

one book, and usually one or more stories on various sites online simultaneously


Do you prefer real books or digital?

I appreciate both digital books and hard copies, but most of the time, prefer hard copy.

A major drawback with purchasing digital books is very few of them can be shared with another person, unless the device they are loaded onto is loaned to them.
A hard copy book can be passed around to people if I wish, sold afterwards, given to the library, etc. It continues to live its life as a book, being read.

So I'd have to say, for the most part, I prefer hard copies, but not always.

Both have advantages and drawbacks. One thing I love about digital versions is the instant access to a dictionary.

Same question for the next person, do you prefer real books or digital?

I love real books because I can feel the page turning under my finger tips. But I like Audio books too if I'm working or working out or if I'm sick and can't see very well.


Will you read me a bedtime story when I'm sick?

Sure, why not?

Do you think any one will surpass me in forum posts?

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Depends on the circumstances, who finished the cake, what kind it was, how many pieces the person had already eaten...

Are you good at solving crossword puzzles and/or like doing them?

One cannot catch a unicorn. No, it either must be sought out, or summoned. In most unicorn myths, there is only one unicorn in the world, and that unicorn has the power to heal. By giving its horn, it dies, but is resurrected, thus the soul of the unicorn is immortal. You have to be worthy, though, the unicorn won't just give its life for any yob. That's where the quest comes in. That's how one would catch a unicorn.

Now that we've established that unicorns are difficult to catch, just exactly how difficult is it to catch a monkey?

Ghosts, flamingos, guitars and vodka. Don't forget Kitty and Kitten. Eclectic subjects, eccentric stories:

As difficult as for that of catching a unicorn, but not for the same reasons or in the same way.

Name something you did on the school playground when you were a kid, that landed you in trouble.

There was a row of trees at the edge of the schoolyard that only kids who walked home were allowed to go past. It was drilled into us NOT TO CROSS THAT LINE. Every day, I walked with a friend to that point, then we said our goodbyes and she kept walking home while I ran over to line up for the bus.

One day, deeply engrossed in conversation, I ended up about 20 yards on the wrong side of the trees — which the mean girls noted with delight. I was sick with worry and tearfully confessed to my mother, who took me to see the teacher. She listened to my story, told me to be more careful in the future, and assured me that I didn't need to worry about the tattletales.

So my transgression did land me in a tiny bit of trouble, but nearly as much as I had envisioned. geek

Should I have been punished?

No.. it was a ridiculous rule meant to fail.. it says more about the rulemaker than it does about the transgressor..

Would you rather live in a valley or on the hill?

Yes, but only an appropriate amount. In this case it seems you have done most of the punishment to yourself. I would imagine a reminder of the rules and a smile.

Call a friend up because she gives the best hugs of all times and she'll softly whisper in my ear "I love you my sweet friend" *Blush deeply*

Couple of slices of bacon, brake a few eggs over them, break the yokes, when they're solid flip the thing. On dark whole wheat bread.



What should I drink with that?
