    Whoo! I'm not too late for the party, am I? *sees that the party ended rather over two weeks ago* ...Well then. That's problematic.

    I have no suggestions whatsoever! If you hadn't noticed, mine has been the same for approximately always. This should show you my aptitude for avatar choosing abilities. That said, my username leaves me with somewhat less choice than yours...

    Pretty much the same things happen over Christmas, yes, with one significant difference: I actually like the family that I see over Christmas (it's my dad's side, as opposed to my mom's.) Regarding embarrassment, I just try not to care, on the grounds that I never really see family, so I don't...

    Well, watching a particular game is considered traditional, that game being football. I am not much of a fan... That said, there was delicious food aplenty, ranging from such traditional items as you had mentioned to considerably less standard fare. Almost makes up for having to tolerate family.

    Apologies, I am indeed horribly busy. I just got back from an unpleasant vacation, in which I spent thanksgiving with family... Eugh. That said, it went somewhat better than expected. Not fantastic, but not by any means terrible. I have heard good things about khanacademy.com for knowledgable...

    I hate that question. Whether one drives doesn't seem like it should be a fundamental part of one's identity, but it's certainly treated as such. I somewhat sympathise, because while I am of age to have my driver's license, I don't even have my permit yet. Not that I have a car I'd be able to...

    I'm too young to vote, and I'm pretty apathetic toward Obama's victory. I'm not much a fan of either of the two main candidates, although I suppose I dislike Obama less. So, woo, I suppose. I have not read the book, but I just now put it on my kindle due to your recommendation, so I'll get back...

    Whoops, it would appear that I missed the sacrificial bonfire. I would define myself as an atheist. While I don't think the existence of a god can be disproven (unless you give the god specific attributes, i.e. the abrahamic god,) I still have fairly firm belief that one does not exist. An...

    I find myself agreeing with what you've said. I mean, I feel like a given church behaves more like a business than anything. I don't have a problem with a given person being of a given religion, as it could not be less of my business who/what you choose to worship. However, and I'm not exactly...

    Meat is delightful. At some point or another, though, I intend to go vegetarian for one year. But that's really just for kicks. I love animal bits far too much to forsake them for much longer.

    Well, the universe imploded and then time stopped. You then leave nothing but my response to fill the resulting void. That's rather a lot of pressure I'm now under. ~~~ ...I recently had some delicious meatloaf.

    Indeed, the forum should forgive such a pseudo-intp member. However, it is entirely up for debate as to whether that particular pseudo-intp will forgive a given beverage for a busy week spent in his (astonishingly cozy) attic. (Really, though, whoops. I do not do this intentionally, I'm just...

    That's frighteningly relevant. I have horrific, large, wide, crooked, hairy hobbit feet. So, I wear flip flops all the time to show them off to the world at large (I actually just really hate socks.) Over three years ago, I bought some sandals for twenty bucks at some convenience store on a...

    What can I say? I'm a hooligan. A fascinating anecdote. I don't think that is a matter of concern for me, though. White pines are all over the damn place. ...I think so, anyway. If they are not, you may now be talking to a fugitive.

    Canadians indeed. O_O Anecdote requested, good miss. And it was perfectly legal. It was a white pine in somebody's back yard, which they were paying us to remove. A friend's dad was doing most of the work, and he does various tree related shenanigans for a living. This was just a small job on...

I seem to have mentioned the "hard classes" bit in both a PM and VM. ...It would be standard for me to ask you how your courses are, now that you know, but if I did so it would be yet another redundant thing. So, I'll avoid that. But still, I'm...

    When I was about twelve and younger, I always spent my money on books and games. It would be spent quickly, sure, but I still got enjoyment out of it.

    I'm absolutely baffled. I think I've spent a good twenty minutes on and off trying to see door hinges crushing an orange. Is there some clear symbolism I'm just too blind to see, sitting in plain sight? Is this an elaborate scheme, hatched by Nocturne, simply because she knew I would spend...

    I love math as much as the next guy, but generally speaking, symbols don't actually evoke a smile. Contrary to that general statement, due to the fact that I think you placed said symbols rather sillily (try saying that word, it's fun,) they did indeed make me smile. Anywho...
