Gael?s slight tendency to talk to her as if she was stupid was rather irritating. The longer she was near her, the more she found her presence irritating. She didn?t really want to talk to the new comers either, especial
  2. It sounds like you're really sad about your own youth slipping away. You're noticing things in your friend that didn't use to occur, like the makeup and such. It's perfectly normal to feel a little uncomfortable or even sad about change. It's just part of growing up and like my daughter said, look at yourself and you'll find that you've changed too. I'd recommend finding the things you liked about it, like how you enjoyed seeing your friend again. Just as there are sad things about it, there are fun positive things too. ^_~
  3. Goodness, kids advising another kid on how to approach parenthood. For starters I?ll outright say it, ignore Odin M Yggdrasi?s advice completely, about the only good thing they told you was about making sure your kid gets sex education and that?s it. I assure you, I?m not overlooking the marriage bit, I?ll get to that in a moment here. Now it?s been said, but aid is there for a reason so don?t overlook a possible resource that can help you take care of your family. It?s also been said, but the idea that pregnancy means no working for the mother is absolutely absurd. Let the doctor d
  4. I'd have to think about this, but I can think of one immediately. I'm not sure how many people know who Alan Ashton is. For those who don't he's the co-creator of WordPerfect. I know him for the simple reason that he worked at Brigham Young University, so he knew my ex husband who also teaches.
  5. [quote name='Raiha'][COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Times New Roman"]See this is where I get to kill myself laughing because I have the books.[/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE]As do I since they were required for school when I was taking college classes in music. My health kept me from finishing and getting my degree, but I still learned to play quite a few pieces from those books. I don't take the time to fully learn them anymore, but my sight reading is more than up to the task to play any of them at any given time. And having just read about them, I think I'll listen to my own copies of Bach's The We
  6. I don't have smoothie's very often but when I do I like this paticular recipe. STRAWBERRY-BLACKBERRY SMOOTHY 6-8 strawberries (fresh or frozen) 6-8 blackberries (fresh or frozen) 8 ice cubes 2 1/2 cups lowfat or non-fat milk 1 scoop whey powder Rinse and cut tops of strawberries, and rinse blackberries. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy. Perfect for dieting, or leave out whey powder and add ice cream for a delicious smoothy drink. Makes about 3-5 cups.
  7. Usually when I have tea, it's a form of iced tea that I grew up on. It's made with orange pekoe. I have to really watch my sugar intake though so I don't have it anywhere as often as I use to, which is a shame, it's good stuff.
  8. I usually have some form of hot cereal. It's either oatmeal, cream of wheat or if cold then something like grapenuts or shredded wheat with slices of bananas mixed in. Some times I fix other stuff like eggs and toast or sausage. However, that is only occasionally. Oh and I always have either milk or a bit of juice with it.
  9. [quote name='Nerdsy'][color=deeppink]Well, there [I]was[/I] this one time I spun around a circle real fast for a whole minute. The room was totally spinning and it was so [I]awesome,[/I] I about passed out.[/color][/QUOTE]I remember doing that as a child. We'd spin in circles until we were so dizzy that we fell over on the grass in the back yard. I remember thinking it was the funniest thing, at least until I became a teenager. Now as for under the influence, I was a boring child and adult so I don't have any stories to tell. My older brother however did some really stupid stuff from basi

Natalia said as she moved to open the door leading out of the storage room. Viktor didn?t give her the chance as he opened the door for all of them. ?[B]Maybe the computers are still on,[/B]?

  11. [QUOTE][FONT=Arial]Amusing? Well, I [I]suppose[/I]...in the sense that watching a sizzling ant writhe under the light from my magnifying glass could be considered amusing. So we'll all laugh and cringe and have a grand ole' time together, but keep in mind that interrogation is srius bizniss, and so I plan on being quite....ehh, [I]thorough[/I] about it. [/FONT][/QUOTE]I still say you'll be amusing to watch in action, even if you intend to be [I]thorough[/I] about it young man. Anyway... This is what I get for not paying attention but... what's with all the speculation on how long
  12. ?[B]What?s our current status Lt. Commander?[/B]? Tarika Zaidin looked up from where she was sitting at one of the computer stations on the bridge of the[I] Liberator[/I]. Since Greydon Kreid had managed to make off with the Transcendence and Commander Landers, the crew had been working around the clock to replace personnel as well as finish up the repairs. She halted the system checks for security that she was running and turned to answer Commander Spencer?s question. ?[B]The repairs are nearly complete sir. All that?s left is to finish running all the system checks.[/B]? ?[

How long had it been since she had any sort of time away from others? Even as a little girl she had always been surrounded by other people, constantly reminded of her duty to be responsible and dutiful. Her family was not as well off as others were but still more than enough to have a comfortable living in one of the richer areas of
  14. [quote name='James'][font=franklin gothic medium]The issue is how the politicians present themselves, how the media represents/misrepresents them and how large groups of people are swayed not by legitimate policy debate but by starry-eyed, quasi-religious rhetoric.[/font][/QUOTE]I don't doubt that people are swayed by [I]starry-eyed quasi-religious rhetoric[/I] as you put it James. And I can understand the concern or feel that people shouldn't allow themselves to be swayed by such things. I can at least assure you that many of us do at least try to understand the issues and make our choices ba
  15. [CENTER][B]It?s not fair[/B][/CENTER] He wanted to cry to protest, for surely others had done far worse.   True justice knows better. What your neighbor has done doesn?t matter. He finally broke as they took him away. His protests that he had done nothing wrong were empty and hollow. It was only a little thing.   He paid the bitter price.
  16. You're welcome Sabrina and congratulations are definitely in order Allamorph. You've done an excellent job with every single poem you've written.:catgirl:

Space hotel aside, people were behaving like they always did at a party. Poking their nose into places they didn?t belong, having too much to drink, and hitting on every pretty woman in sight. It was no different than if she had still been on the ground managing the massive Casino where she had been working. Once things were under sway instead of staying out on the main floor she had opted to retreat to the main security room for the Casi
  19. [CENTER][B]Fallen love[/B] I love you with all of my heart Though fate would tear us apart Like a soft whisper of endless night Stolen from by those with no sight We cry and protest that we must part Why would one ever take part In rending those who are smart With soulless eyes that give fright I love you No truer words will my voice impart Though it pains me to need a fresh start If only I could soar and take flight I would not have to face this blight It pains me for love to break apart I love you[/CENTER]

If most people think so, I don't really mind removing it.[/SIZE][/QUOTE]I'll admit that I do find it startling, but I wouldn't go so far as to remove it.

  22. Daniel stared at the picture of his mother in the tiny old fashioned locket for a while before he finally tucked it back under his uniform and leaned back against the wall of the cell he was now in. Other than to make sure he had no hand held computers or weapons, Greydon Kreid had not bothered to relieve him of any personal possessions. He was certain that once they got to wherever he was taking him to, that would change soon enough. All it meant was that Kreid would not be the one to conduct his interrogation, if he had been going to do so, he would not have left it with him. It was likely
  23. [quote name='Retribution'][font=Arial]To be frank, I'm not sure when you got the go-ahead to pontificate on the nature of online forum, and I'm offended that you're prepared to call me (and rather, not my argument) foolish. My intention was never to troll, and if confronting the logic of one's argument (and rhetorical fallacies) constitutes trolling, perhaps this entire thread should stop now. I'm not looking to spark unnecessary controversy, and I'm not arbitrarily trying to start a fight. I apologize if you view my posting as such.[/font][/QUOTE]I'll accept responsiblity for not wording
  24. [quote name='Sabrina'][FONT="Tahoma"][B]EDIT:[/B] The final thread is up! Sorry for the slight delay. Here is the thread in question for the remaining three contestants. [thread=59056][U]Aaryanna_Mom vs. Indi vs. Allamorph[/U][/thread][/FONT][/QUOTE]Thank you again for giving me that extra week since this past week was a complete disaster. I haven't even been online since last Saturday. Anyway, should be fun to see what you two come up with for the final poem.
  25. Gay marriage and a religion thread, all in the week that I'm gone... there should be some sort of OB rule against that. :animesigh I really don't have the patience to go very far into this, other than to point out that Jeremiah's answers are fairly close to my own. Except for the bit on evil, I tend to lean more towards what Indi was talking about instead of free will. Or rather a combination of the two is more what I see. If you stop and think about it... if there was no evil, there would be no concept of right and wrong. Just as there is light, there is shadow. Free will can be tied in
