friday pseudo-drinking game (FPDG)!


ever played "i never"?
sure you have.
you step forward (or drink, lush friends) if you HAVE done something. (opposite of what you'd think.) in this case, you'll post if you have done any of the three things below. don't be nervous - we're all friends here. plus, you can explain or not explain as much as you like.

in the vein of spirit and admittal, i have to ask questions about things that have happened to me.

1. i never had an imaginary friend.
2. i've never questioned my own religion.
3. i've never been arrested.

(* i could go on about mine for a while, but this isn't about me, it's about you - so briefly: 1. her name was sandy. lasted about a year, she was great. my brothers tortured her, later we ended everything in a very brief but collosal fight. 2. i was raised in the cath church, and i'm italian, have lots of roots there, but... garg, and 3. yep. later post. mYSteRy!)

Oh man, I always suck/rule at this game because I lead such a sheltered lifestyle. But here we go.

1 - You don't need imaginary friends when you have an older brother to beat you up. But I think I did make my stuffed dog Fred talk for a while. Come to think of it, I still do.

2 - Oh my, yes. There have been a few nights when I've lied awake in bed and wondered if the entire Christian religion was just invented to help people could sleep at night. Ironically, this inevitably leads to me not sleeping.

3 - Not yet, although if the feds ever get a hold of my hard drive, they'll probably have a few questions.

I'm so excited to hear your arrest story. Were you protesting something? I bet you were protesting something.

1. I don't remember him, but my aunt insists that I did and his name was Mr. Rosenbaum.

2. Ayup.

3. In 7th grade I was ALMOST arrested in Gold Circle (anybody remember them?) for stealing a Kleenex from an open box. I was taken into a back office by two scary men and my friend's mom, whom I was shopping with, wasn't allowed to come into the office with us. I only went back to Gold Circle once after that and I had a panic attack. I'm glad they closed. GLAD.

Thanks for the interactivity, T-Dawg!

Hi Tara, we've never been formally introduced (thanks Tim) but since you're going to be taking care of the boy I thought I should check the blog out. So yeah, I'm Rob. Hi.

1. Yes, I had a imaginary lion named Leo... the Lion. He was from a painting I had in my room when I was little.

2. Raised Catholic, I can identify. Some actions of the chuch have been "questionable" at least. So yeah...

3. Arrested? No. But I've often been told that looks as good as mine, SHOULD be illegal.

Alright... no one says that, I have low self-esteem.

Wha wha whaa? I don't post for 4 days and I find you sniffing at the door of other bloggers? You blog whore! Oh well, as long as I'm making a scene here I might as well play along.

Hi, I'm Scott. You may remember me from such productions as Bufford the Wonder Blog. I think we've more or less met. But formal introductions prevent people from digging through links for 2 hours to figure out how someone got to your blog (people like me... I don't have a lot going on right now).

1. Imaginary friends? Who am I, Dakota Fanning? I had invisible friends. Not imaginary. Just because you can't see them doesn't mean they aren't real. Because they are. Too real. So so very real. Make them stop.

2. I've questioned. The thing is, it's rare to get an answer. Especially an answer not involving one of my invisible friends.

3. Frankly I'm shocked Rob neglected to mention the myriad times he's been with me when I've averted trouble only with my wits and silver tongue. That works about 3/4ths of the time. So... yes I've been arrested. It was awesome. Surprisingly they don't really appreciate Barney Fife references, provided they even catch them.

- Scott

Tara, Rob. Rob, Tara.

Tara, scotty 2 hotty. scotty 2 hotty, Tara.

Sorry my weird friends followed me to your blog, Tara. They tend to follow me around regardless, so I'm not surprised they're tagging along electronically.

1. nope, but i did believe that my stuffed animals were sentient beings who came alive when no humans were in the room. in fact, i still believe that.
