Oops, answered the date question first. Anyway, not much to do during a blizzard, at least for me, so I stay at home, turn up the heating, cuddle up in bed, maybe listen to some music/watch a film/read a book, while also having a warming drink.
If you were to associate one fragrance note or a few/several fragrance notes with your idea of Paradise, which note/notes would this/these be?
It depends, if I don't feel comfortable and is extremely awkward then I'll just leave with friends and move on else where. Or if I have a bad feeling that something is going to happen I also leave. The answer varies greatly for me.
Eating fast food. I stopped in 2002. Actually this summer it will have been a decade since I dedcided to stop. In which I've eaten fast food only about 14 times which were out of sheer necessity. And more recently I refrain from heavy meals after the sun sets.
Its a nice story about how I came to realize I no longer want to eat fast food. I went to the states to study in 2000 and like most freshman and sophomore students I ate a lot fast food. The first two years went by fast and visits to home were mostly short so I didn't notice the difference in food. It was not until the end of the second year when I visited home for about a month did I realize how good our food was. Its in this year that I developed a taste for vegetables. Prior to that I'd mostly focus on beef, chicken and fish and rice and breads. I took vegetables for granted. But that summer it was like a revelation. Everything just tasted wonderful.
Home cooked. Fresh. Vegetables. Fruit. Healthy. Rich. REAL!. I decided then and there that I wouldn't eat fast food. It was a bit difficult because my friends still ate fast food but I managed by planning lunch/dinner with friends who preferred eating at proper restaurants or we'd cook at home.
Well, I wouldn't call it proud but feeling satisfied, drinking alcohol. I didn't drink all that much, compared to most people, but it's nice to leave it behind. The main problem was other people wanting to drink. I think I never got bought so many drinks as when I wanted to stop. I didn't stop completely and still will have a wine with the girlfriend, etc but hangovers, getting drunk down the pub and such are a thing of the past.
What was the last activity that you were thoroughly engrossed in?
Writing a post on BN! Not sure if I should be getting so engrossed in posting, but that's the truth!
One of the interesting things about people's yards in the western US is the fact many are "natural" - people just take whatever natural grasses or plants come. Others work hard to maintain some semblance of order.
What is your favorite brand and/or model of a sports car? (alternatively, if you do not like cars at all, your fave sporty type of bike, boat, plane or any other such means of transportation of sportier, faster, more recreational style)
A little of both. In my younger years I had conformed a bit and just wanted and accepted fitting in. Sticking out was something I didn't want to do, and it would raise attention. But, a part of growing up is breaking through those walls and truthfully seeing the world in your own eyes, thereby forming your own opinions.
This sounds silly . I misplaced my sunblock . I'm very particular about my sunblock - SPF 70 Neutrogena Sheer Face Fluid and I use it all over . Of course when I did find it days later , I'd already purchased another !
