Ответ задачки очень прост:
коль болен - грелку во весь рост...

Вот другая версия ответа:
...Источник всех болезней - мысли,
учись же мыслью управлять,
Я говорю в прямом здесь смысле,
попробуй тут меня понять:

когда в груди от злобы пламя,
и желчь сжигает всё внутри,
получишь вмиг ты в почки камень,
и желчный камень впереди...

потерян смысл - до рака близко,
о том сказал бы и Платон:
не опускайтесь в мыслях низко -
жалеть не будете потом....

Have you ever had a secret admirer? What happened?

Prompt:

Have you ever had a secret admirer? What happened?



Secret Admirer fessed up and i was placed in the unfortunate position of being responsible and letting her down as easily as I could.

One of the few times where I wished that we had met many years ago and one of the few times I really hated life.

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?
"What was the most embarrassing day of your life?"

Good question.

I no longer experience embarrassment like I did when I was an adolescent or college student.

The only occasion which caused me embarrassment was public speaking for class assignments. I would've rather died than to speak in front of my classroom peers and teachers.

When I reached my late twenties this dissipated quickly.

My mother always told me that I wouldn't give a shit about such unsubstantial things once I experienced enough of life's malarchy...and she was right!!

Once I became pissed off enough, pissed off at corporate America for several reasons, pissed off at my husband (now ex-husband), pissed off at my relatives who lacked humanity, and pissed off at the world in general for it's outright idioticness, I soon forgot about the embarrassment I would have during public speaking engagements.

Although the events that led me to a place of "comfort" were fucked up, I wouldn't have had it any other way now.

From these events I learned to express myself whether people liked it or not!! I learned that caring what others thought is like growing a tumor in your brain that slowly is ultimately going to sooner or later kill you. I learned that holding things in was toxic. I grew thick thick skin and with this I became "unembarrased"....

Have you ever had a secret admirer? What happened?

I chuckled when i read this question. Back in 2nd grade a friend of mine was getting secret admirer notes, and then another girl in class was getting some too. I felt like i wasn't special and was kind of jealous so i wrote fake secret admirer notes to myself and told everyone that they were from someone else.

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?


I was around 12 or 13 and had recently been visited by the tit fairy who had been very very kind to me. I had gone to the swimming pool and had worn my swim suit under a pair of shorts and a tee shirt. Afterwards I just put the shorts and tee shirt back on. On the way home we stopped by The Tasty Freeze to get ice cream cones.

It was a very hot day and I thought that I was still wearing my swimsuit and yanked my tee-shirt off and flashed the counter guy.

I was very embarrassed and here it is almost 35 years later and I still feel my cheeks getting a little warm.

On a positive note, my icecream come was free. ;)

Have you ever had a secret admirer? What happened?
I myself is the secret admirer to someone that I really liked. He's my senior and yeah, he's my brother's friend. We're 4 years apart. When I was still dreaming of him, stalking on him like a mad, freak obessesive stalker and wishing he's mine, my brother came into the line telling me cut off my interest in him and to just leave him alone.
I was so surprised by the fact that my brother doesn't like me being all nice-y to him and.... I finally decided to stop being his admirer and all. I've kept that feeling longgg buried in my heart. At first, I really hate my brother because of that but to think of it, it would be shameful for my brother that he had to see his little sister being with someone who's the same age as his :)
That's why I don't want to keep this hope anymore. My friends have also make so many attempts of breaking the fruit of reality to me saying that 'he's off with someone better than me' , 'He probably think that I'm just a little girl and was too young to preoccupied with someone like him' and so on. I really cried a lot because of that. However I soon felt that it's useless to waste my tears on a GUY. Better if I wasted it on my family whom cared me for all these years.


You and I
didn't agree from the beginning
without doubt, it is a war without an end.
Passion, pain is a bad combination.

P.S: What I really wanted to say is, love will come to ourselves eventually we just need to wait for love to make its magic to us :)

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?
When I was in pre-first me and my family, for some reason, went to a school concert thing. When I was there I ran into my friend so we sat by each other on the ground. We both knew all the words to the song so we were quietly singing along. Then it got to the point in the song where they yelled out the lyric and I yelled it out too.. real loud.  The entire gymnasium looked at me at the same time, seriously all there heads turned at exactly the same time. The audience, the kids on stage even stopped and looked at me, along with the teachers. I was so embarrassed I made my mom take me home. 

The Most Embaressing Day of My Life

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?


The most embarassing day of my life was when Jeremiah Fry Wells told the whole fucking school that we had slept together and that was right after I had taken my very first hit of weed in my life, ever. He told everyone that we had done all kinds of crazy shit and we diddent. He got on top of me was all fat with tits and long hair, and a short tiny dick so I cried and went home.

The next day every idiot at school was trying to get at me, most embaressing day, ever.

Вопрос дня: Простуда

Профилактика - это вообще и по отдельности прекрасно!
конечно теплая одежда, согревающие напитки!  можно и горячительные, и лучше в гомеопатических дозах. Впрочем определите сами.
Лично в список моих предпочтений входит глинтвейн. как правило, домашний(лучше Вас никто это не сделает). Кстати это настоящий элексир, имела счастье и несчастье одновременно убедиться!
Далее стандартный набор: витаминные комплексы, правельное питание и, если позволяет время, спорт. Конечно есть тонкости! Подстраивайте абсолютно все рекомендации под себя, и врач - лучший помошник.

А когда, так сказать, СВЕРШИЛОСЬ! Важно остаться дома в первый день! Если не упустить драгоценное время- сэкономите от 5 дней до 2х недель! Но придется взяться за гнустное полоскание носоглотки. Лучше раствоом фурацилина с хлоргексидином. ну и еще таблетированные формы. Плюс врач. Но боюсь это лирика.... подобными советами изобилует любой сайт.

Для меня простуда- состояние души. канечно это связано с физиологическим аспектом переохлаждения, авитаминозом и инфекцией.
Но иногда тянет просто поболеть. А это влечет за собой заботу близких, комфорт и уют. Тепло дома, прискорбное понимание знакомых. это не плюсы. все они нивелируются плохим самочувствие, сорванными планами на работу, учебу и отдых.

Тем более, что такое состояние отнюдь не душевно, т.е. не назовешь приятным. Это является симптомом болезни и плохого самочувствия. В этот момент сбивается и обмен веществ, и привычный ритм. Организм переживает стресс. Понятно что создать идеальные условия не возможно, но можно подготовить его. Меры не должны быть радикальными. Обычные закаливания вполне подойдут. Достаточно начать с умывания еле прохладной водой,а все остальное Вам подскажет Ваше тело! И это супер!
Это не гонка, не состязание. Не нужно выше(здесь ниже))) ,сильнее,быстрее! С кем соревноваться? Со своим телом? зачем себя изнурять? жизнь и условия жизни справляются на раз без Вашей помощи? Позаботьтесь о теле, и Вам воздасться это хорошим самочувствием. Важно продумать стратегию индтвидуально, но по принципу наименьших раздражителей и постепенно.

Конечно, что не убивает-делает сильнее. Но в данном случае не стоит искать эту грань.

Эти советы тривиальны, но если начинать- большего не нужно.
Получите удовольствие от осени,и даже от самых ненастных дней.!

На сколько для Вас важны предстоящие выборы?
Для меня важны любые выборы, потому что я оппозиционно настроеный человек и считаю, что оппозиция должна сущевствовать. Не только в России, на Украине, в Беларуси, а где-либо.
Но всё же результат выборов в РФ дано уже предугаданы и известны. И это очень печально...

What’s your biggest pet peeve?


My Biggest Pet Peeve? Wow I have so many I could probably write a novel full of them... but here is a few that really stand out in my mind:
- People who drive too slow / or cut you off in traffic
- People who park their cars in the driving lane of a parking lot instead of just moving down further into an actually parking spot.
- People who talk in movie theatres
- The phrase "If You're Not Mad?" when I'm serving someone at the store and they ask for something, followed by that evil and annoying phrase. Like seriously, you are making me mad with that sentence. And even if I was mad, I'd still have to serve you cause that's kinda my job.

Вопрос дня: Первая любовь

Когда вы влюбились в первый раз?
В детском саду) Я призналась мальчику, что он мне нравится, а он меня, как говорится, отшил))
Потом было мне шесть лет и был один вымышленный персонаж, в которого я была влюблена без памяти и которому посвящала тогдашние деццкие стихи.
Потом мне было девять, и был ещё один вымышленный персонаж, в честь которого я переделала известную на тот момент песню.
Потом мне было одиннадцать, и был другой вымышленный персонаж, которому я посвящала менее деццкие, но более аццкие стихи.
Потом мне было тринадцать, и был третий вымышленный персонаж, которому я до сих пор посвящаю стихи и песни. Самый мой первый серьёзный "муз".
Потом мне было четырнадцать, и мне наконец-то понравился кто-то реальный... Но чисто внешне, потому что наши интересы совпадали даже менее, чем совсем никак. Хотя приподнятое от влюблённости настроение присутствовало))
Потом мне было шестнадцать, и я завела себе второго муза. Что удивительно, не блондина.
Сейчас мне восемнадцать, и музов у меня то три, то четыре, а то и все пять. А реального никого так и нет. И не надо, пока, чесслово, ни с кем меня знакомить! Захочет - сам появится. ;)

Have you ever had a secret admirer? What happened?


When i was at a very young age, i was just very shocked because every single day i receive various gifts at different times of the day. As for example, in the morning, there paper roses, in the noon, there were paper cards with origami and in the afternoon, there were, not anymore paper anything but there were chocolates on my desk. I kept on wondering who that was and when i knew who that person was, i burst in laughter because i never expected that person to be so desperate just to have a person to be with at various times of the day. He said that the gifts represent at what time of the day does he need the most attention. So, basically, we did not end up together but we stayed to be really good friends.

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?


It's really hard to say which day was the most embarrassing day of my life is, since I've had so many. The one that really sticks out, however, was an incident that occurred when I was thirteen years old. I was at Kmart wearing my Sunday best (well, it was actually my friend's Sunday best, as I was borrowing it) when a bad can of Alpo exploded as I was walking down the pet food aisle. While most of the mess landed on the poor girl stocking the shelves, I ended up with quite a bit of it on myself... and my friend's lovely dress. Wet dog food smells bad enough. Rotten wet dog food... ugh. It was a very smelly journey home.

This is incredibly unorthodox, but I'm actually responding to today's WB to look for some help. A family that holds a very special place in my heart is at risk of losing their home and is in dire need of help. I'm turning to the LJ community to help me help them. If my readers can, at the very least, use their social media outlets to get the word out, I would be ever so grateful, and so would this wonderful family.

I have so many to choose from but I'd have to go with the one that really stuck out the most.

I was in 3rd grade (so long ago) and we were at lunch, a friend was saying something funny and I laughed so hard that milk came flying out of my nose. Silence reigned for all of 2 seconds before everyone was laughing and pointing at me. I ran from the lunch room and actually left the school and went home (thankfully I only lived across the street). My teacher came to get me and insisted that sometimes things happen but that it was important to be able to laugh about it after. When we got back to school she asked that every kid in my class tell something embarrassing that they've done that made others laugh. She explained that we will do things that are embarrassing that's how things go sometimes but we need to realize that EVERYONE else will also; and that being able to laugh at something we've done will help to take the sting out of it.

This was a valuable lesson for me, I'm extremely clumsy. I've tripped walking up stairs, over my own two feet and have even walked into a wall and I've also laughed at myself and not feel the need to run for cover.

The most embarrassing day of my life would have to have been when I walked in the State Fair parade.  It had gotten dark by the end of the parade, and I'd somehow gotten separaded from the group I was walking with.  Luckily, they'd found me, and I explained that I couldn't really see where I was going because I can't really see too well in the dark.

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?


Looking back, I don't know that that is one embarrassing moment that was worse than the others, but there were several that come to mind at the moment. Nothing major, but they were always those moments that never seemed to fade away, even though I really wanted them to. Let's start at the beginning:

Preschool: At the end of each day the kids would sit down in the hallway by the door and wait for the parents to drive by and pick them up. My mom arrives, and as I start to get up and walk to the door I realize that I have to pee. I'm torn because my mom is there and I want to leave, but I also need to use the bathroom. This must have been really obvious because a teacher comes up to me and asks me if I'm okay and if I need to use the bathroom. At this point I'm embarrassed and tell her no, and then proceed to wet myself as I walk to the door.

Kindergarten: In Kindergarten we always had these alphabet workbooks that we needed to do activities in. The teacher would make sure that everyone was in different areas of the classroom so that we couldn't cheat off eachother. I was always next to these cuboard doors and this kid Mike sat around the corner. He would always poke his head around the corner and we would help eachother with the answers that we couldn't figure out. One day I couldn;t figure out the answer and I couldn't tell what answer Mike was trying to give me, and I started crying. I think I was pretty embarrassed when my teacher found my crying because I couldn't figure out the answer to the problem. I put way too much pressure on myself in school didn't I?

1st Grade: I was sitting in class totally zoning out, but apparently I must have been zoning out in the general direction of Brant Ullery, because I'm sitting there not thinking about anything when all of a sudden he turns around and shouts at me: "WHAT?!" I was mortified. I don't think I ever looked in his direction ever again.

2nd Grade: In gym class we had a parachute unit, where we would do different parachute games. One of them was called Jaws. A couple kids would be under the parachute (the sharks), a couple kids would be standing around the outside edge of the parachute (the life guards), and then the rest of us would sit around the edge of the parachute with our legs underneath. We would wave the parachute up and down, and then the sharks would crawl around, grab our legs, and try to pull us under the parachute. The life guards then had to try and save us from being caught by the sharks. Why was this embarassing? Cause one time while we were playing this game the shark ended up grabbing my sweatpants instead of my feet, and the life guard ended up grabbing the sleeves of my sweatshirt instead of my hands.... yeah... in this tug of war game they practically took my clothes off. I have no idea who the shark was, but the clearly got to see what kind of underwear I wore to school that day. The teacher made it very clear after that moment that you should always grab hands and feet, never the clothes. Oy.

3rd grade: That was when we had our CPR unit, and everyone had to go up in front of the class and perform CPR on a dummy. I have absolutely no idea what I did, but somehow when I exhaled into the dummy's mounth, I ended up making some kind of really strange noise... kind of a coughing/honking noise. I don't know what it was and could probably never duplicate it if I tried, but to do that in front of the entire class? Embarrassing.

4th grade: I already wrote about this moment a while back. I was sledding with my friend Milena and my hat flew off of my head. And who picked it up? [Crush #1]. I had to beg my friend to get the hat for me, because I was too terrified to go anywhere near him. It was pretty embarrassing.

5th grade: There was some unit where we had these big plastic pipes that we had to fill with water. Depending on how high the water was filled, and how big the pipe was, when you blew over the top of it the pipe would make a sound. We then had to break into groups and try to do a song. My little trio decided to do Hot Cross Buns, and we had to perform that in front of the ENTIRE 5th grade. When we practiced it, we sounded just fine, but when we went up in front of everyone...
Girl #1: Toot
Girl #2: TOOT
Me: puff
Girl #1: Toot
Girl #2: TOOT
Me: puff... puff...puff...

6th grade: Our family went to San Diego for a 3rd Recon reunion for my dad. Me and my sister decided to go swim at the pool for a while by ourselves, since we had some time to kill before the reunion dinner. After we were done we headed back to the door, I put my room card in the card slot, and the door didn't open. I tried again, and again, and again. The door wouldn't open. I'm jerking on the door when all of a sudden it opens up and atanding there is some dude who just stepped out of the shower with a towel wrapped around his waist. I had the wrong room! I immediately appologized to the guy and explained that I had the wrong room, and his response was "No problem babe." I turned bright red and immediately walked away.

7th or 8th grade: I was terrible at giving speeches. I would get all this adrenaline running through me, and then my hands would tremble. I was giving a speech while holding a piece of paper with my notes on it, and you could clearly see my hands shaking. I look down, and I see [Crush #2] and Ben Chaya mocking me by shaking their hands. [Crush #2] was always my least favorite of my crushes.

9th grade: We had a bus evacuation drill and I when it was my turn to jump off the back of the bus I fell and books flew everywhere. Embarrassed.

12th grade: I alresdy wrote about this one as well. Me and [Crush #4] went to see two movies together. One of the movies that we had tickets for we didn't intend on seeing. We were planning on sneaking into a different one. We got busted and had to go back to buy tickets for the correct movie. [Crush #4] decided to look all cool and take a short cut back to the ticket window to buy the tickets by hopping over the velvet rope. I tried to copy, but hooked the rope with my foot and crashed. Embarrassed.

Summer after 12th grade: I think I probably wrote about this one as well. I snuck out of the house late at night to go drive around with [Crush #4] cause I was bored. My car ended up dying at his house and I had to call my parents at 3am to come pick me up.

Then there was the time I was with a friend at Walmart. She tried to purchase condoms through the self check-out line and as she left the little siren went off. It was probably more embarrassing for her than it was for me, but still embarrassing.

3rd moment from that summer (seriously, what was up with that summer??), me and the same friend went to a second hand golf store because the guy who worked there was going to be roommates with her ex-boyfriend. Somehow, if we showed up to the store looking all hot (we were wearing backless shirts), he would then tell her ex-boyfriend how hot we were, which would then make him feel bad for breaking up with her. Well we walk into store, and then's when we realize... what on earth are we supposed to do?! It's a store that sells second hand golf equipement! I tried to think fast and told the guy that I wanted to buy my mom a new set of golf clubs. Once he asked which clubs I wanted (cause I didn't realize you don't just have entire sets of golf clubs for purchase) I realized I couldn't pull off the bluff, and just muttered something like "Maybe I'll just get her golf balls instead" and we left. Oh that was embarrassing.

Sophomore Year of College: The first dinner where my mom got to meet Tim. I figured she liked him and incorrectly assumed that now that my mom had met Tim she wouldn't care if I spent the night over at his place. I assumed wrong. At 3am my mom calls me and tells me that she isn't happy and that I need to come home right now. I didn't have my car there though, so at 3am Tim had to get up and drive me all the way home back to Apple Valley. Embarrassed.

Thankfully I don't think I have had any other embarrassing moments after that (or if I have, I have blocked them out), but looking back on all of that, I think I have had more than enough!

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?
I guess one that kind of stuck out when I was a kid was when me and my brother were waiting with my family through the queue line at a movie theater and we had these bang snaps/popper snapper things we were setting off outside, and we had the bright idea of setting off a whole bunch at once. It was so loud and sounded enough like a gun going off that everyone in line turned around and stared at us, and for some reason it was embarrassing as all hell.

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?
It's kind of hard to pinpoint a particular time in which I was more embarrassed than others. I guess one of my most embarrassing moments was when I was 14, probably the first time I ever experimented with alcohol. When I came home I was trying really hard to be quiet, and as soon as I walked in and closed the door, a flimsy end table fell completely over and fell apart, making a lot of noise. Pictures fell from the wall due to all of the movement and I was so flustered that my cover was blown. My mother didn't punish me, she just laughed her ass off because it was hilarious. To this day she brings it up. It's very embarrassing to think about! :P

Easy one. When "Flo" came to town the day my junior high class when to Cedar Point (or was it King's Island?) and I didn't realize there was a problem until I got off a water ride. I was wearing a white and maroon-striped shirt and white shorts. Yeah, not a pretty site. I had to wear a jacket tied around my waist for the rest of the trip...

Вопрос дня: Волонтерство

Как вы относитесь к волонтерству? Есть ли у него будущее в России?

Если для хорошего дела, помощь старикам, детским домам, больницам - замечательно.
Будущего нет, я думаю, для этого нужно иметь много свободного времени, а значит деньги, А народ в подавляющем большинстве в России занят добыванием хлеба насущьного и прокормом безмерного и жадного чиновничества. И конца-края этому не видно.

Вопрос дня: Простуда

Все очень просто.
Мне подсказала этот способ лечения знакомая - врачь.
Мощнейший иммуностимулятор.
Берете чайную ложку меда, перемешиваете его с 3 столовыми локами теплой воды, тудаже кладете 1 таблетку аскорбинки (глюкоза и витамин С), и добавляете столовую ложку водки или другого крепкого алкоголя (я добавляю РОМ) и залпом выпиваете. Действие начинается почти мгновенно. Через полчаса вы уже облеваетесь потом, а к утру (если на ночь пили) состояни на много лучше, а может даже и совсем хорошеее.
Года 4 уже пользую рецепт и всегда работает безотказно.

Writer's Block: Secret love

Have you ever had a secret admirer? What happened?

A funny thing happened to my Secret Admirer on her way to meeting me for the first time ever. You see, the poor girl was so saddened by the lack of Saw Part 8 that she started to drink beer like a fish. She felt suicidal because the world was deprived of the annual Saw film (An annual October tradition since October 2004) that she wouldn't stop drinking beer like a fish. She realized that she was late for her first meeting with me so she got into her car and slammed into an eight wheeled beer delivery truck. To make a short story even shorter, my Secret Admirer died. Since I never met my Secret Admirer, I have no idea which hospital she died in. Oh well, I guess I'm a single Bachelor once again.

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?
Well, there have been plenty, but what springs to mind is the first "Mother's Helper" job I had at 16. I spent weekends in the suburbs, watching three kids while the Jewish Mom shopped or cooked or in the evening, went out with her husband.
They lived in a split level ranch with an open floor plan. The front door opened at the main floor and there was a big stairway down to the 'rec room', study and play area. To the left was the living room and directly across from this entrance was the kitchen and bathroom and the start of the hall to the bedrooms.
The youngest child was 2 yrs. old. It was a big Jewish holiday, and the grandparents were coming for dinner. I stepped into the bathroom, and while sitting, the doorbell rang. I could hear the grandparents being greeted, and just then the 2 yr. old flung open the bathroom door and said in a loud voice, "Granma's here!!" Suddenly every eye was on me!! All I could do is quickly throw a towel over my lap and wait for someone to close the door again!! I think my face was red for hours!!

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?


None. Oh, there have been moments where I want to crawl under my bed, want to cover my face with my shirt but not a whole day.

I think we have to look at ourselves and wonder why we become embarrassed. I know that what makes me run and hide is a lack of confidence an a fear of failure. These things block the way, give fuel the voices in my head that shut me down before I act. Before I can open myself to that fear of failure, of being embarrassed by what others think.

My worse critic is me. I find that I chastise myself like no other would. Patterns emerge where I don't fail because I don't start. I must get over this Dune-esque choice of failure = death. That's right Paul, I'm looking at you. =) Also, it is easier not to start, to be lazy. That is the path I know. That path is easy.

For me it is a hard road to take control of the voices in my head. There are occasions where I succeed. I've set up a table to sell my jewelery, and even sold some pieces. I've preformed stories to a crowd of people and while scared out of my head I got through it. I'm learning to read music with the help of my 9 year old son. Helping him learn is helping me cut through the fear of failure as the first time I tried to learn to read music in grade school I sabotaged myself. Being timid and lazy is something I don't want to pass on to my kids. I've started writing answers to "writers block" because when you want to be a writer you write, and you don't put your answers behind a lj cut because your timid. "Do there is no try." (See what I did there, I'm hushing the voices as I type in a positive, Yoda mentoring way.)

So what did I learn today???? In each instance I had varying degrees of success, from meh to OMG but overall I succeeded because I followed through. I took control back.For me, I can't get embarrassed if I have control over the negative voices that I create. When I tune them out or even better yet, go ahead with my plan of action even when the voices are at their loudest.

I bite my thumb at them, and mean it.

Writer's Block: Anti-bullying month

Who is the biggest bully in your life? One response chosen at random will win an Amazon Kindle. [contest details] (sponsored by )
I'm my own worst enemy or bully. I never compliment myself and when others do, I either ignore it or deny their claim. I wish I could NOT be a bully to myself, but with my early childhood and how life is right now, that would be extremely difficult to even begin to attempt. It's almost like the voices around my past and present are always nagging at me in my head and I can't seem to find the will to calm them, let alone try to stop them. It's terrifying sometimes to think that I've been digging my own grave for the past five or six years of my live. There are even times when I metaphoricly sleep in the hole I'm digging for myself and don't ever want to wake up. I feel like I'm going to die of some kind of heart failure or maybe a knife through the heart one day, but you never know. I might get better with this stuff eventually. Let's hope so.

Writer's Block: Happily ever after

What is your favorite childhood fairytale?

I don't know if I should be embrassed by this or not. My standard answer would be Peter Pan. I... I think Peter Pan was the first boy I was ever obessed with, honestly I collected Peter Pan things.... toys, collectables, glasses, figurines, books, movies... you name it and I probably had it. I dreamed I was Wendy on one occasion, ok probably more then once but I can only remeber the one for sure. I loved Peter Pan and I was gonna marry that boy. When I got older I had to admit, those tights are awesome on him. The weren't pants, those were full on tights/leggings and they were awesome. Unforentaly, looking back... I kinda wished my parents wouldn't of gotten me so much Peter Pan crap that I wanted. I mean it's nothing big and I'm not blaming this at all but it did kinda lead the way to my Weird Al obession, and then my "boys are so awesome" obession in high school, which would lead to my WoW addiction and my current trying really really hard to not figure out where Colfer lives because that's crossing the stalker line. So my favorite childhood fairytale would be Peter Pan. For good reason as you can see.

What was the most embarrassing day of your life?
Well, that honor has to go to my 13th birthday party.  Seriously, this event contained the most embarrassing situation of my life- EVER!  Now, FTR, I tend to find most situations that have a significant amount of attention being paid to me, embarrassing.  However, this one takes the cake!  As it would happen that day, I excused myself during the party to go to the restroom.  Well, that's when I discovered that I had started my period.  Okay, no biggie.  Or so I thought.  Mom had a habit of walking into the bathroom or my room w/o knocking at that time, and that's just what she did at that moment and noticed the blood.  She got so excited that I was now a woman, that she immediately announced it to the entire party.  The next day, my grandma made me a red velvet cake to "celebrate the blessed event".  

Consequently, that is also the story of how my habit of not telling them things came about.
