Well hot diggitydawg, slap me with a brush & paint me sideways, will you look at that?
The posted link in the details shows a happy, pleasant, friendly, but above all SOCIAL thread.
People more than happy to share personal stuff & learn more about their jelly pals, even our sainted ex manager states her joy at such a social gathering of minds.
All this done way back in early 2009, almost a whole year before the much maligned introduction of us Answerbag refugees, long since blamed for the sites drop in standards.
Funny dat :)

I answered this back in the day. I’ll give a quick answer to this one.

1. I miss 25 former users who answered that old question.

Mariah's avatar

1. I have grapheme-color synesthesia which means that, inside my weird brain, numbers and letters and other symbols have innate “colors.” For example, 3 is a green number and if you disagree you’re wrong.
2. I once went 2 months without eating.
3. I really want to learn to weld for some reason. I looove to solder.
4. This fall I will be taking a class to get certified as a first responder.
5. I am stupidly obsessed with birds and quite good at identifying them. People think it’s weird.
6. I have performed stand-up comedy twice and probably will do it a third time next year.
7. I have received 12 blood transfusions. One of my most important bucket list items is to donate enough to at least break even but hopefully reach a positive contribution.
8. However I have yet to get within 10 pounds of the weight limit for donation, so that goal is not going too well.
9. My interests and skills are diverse and I wish I could find some way to make a living by being a “jill of all trades” instead of trying to master my major field.
10. I’m stupidly in love for the first time. He’s napping next to me right now.
11. I was valedictorian of my high school class, but my overachieving days are over.
12. I am really uncoordinated and bad at every sport except, strangely, I am a great skier. This would not be so if my parents hadn’t started me out young.
13. I work as a tutor of differential equations during the school year.
14. I met my best friend at the beginning of pre-school, so we have now been friends for 19 years.
15. I never went through the “rebellious teenager” phase and have always considered my parents to be two of my best friends.
16. I have written one novel and am midway through its sequel. I don’t have any formal training in writing so it may be a long shot, but I’d like to get them published someday maybe.
17. I never touched alcohol until I was 19 but it’s kind of been a love affair ever since.
18. I have migrated friend groups three times in as many years at college. I’m not sure what this says about me.
19. I was a physics major, and then I let myself get intimidated by it it, and I switched to computer science, which is not as much of a passion for me but probably a smarter life choice. I still hope to get a physics degree someday.
20. I paint digitally. My boyfriend does too, and we paint some really cool collaborations at times. It’s great fun.
21. I was very introverted in high school, but I have changed a lot in college. I’m not sure what to call myself anymore. I’m a weird introvert-extrovert mix now.
22. My best friend at college is my roommate. We have waaaayyyyy too much fun at our apartment.
23. I’ve played piano since I was five but I’m still not good at it. I recently realized that learning from sheet music, which is what I was taught, is not my learning style. I’ve been practicing playing by ear for a few years now and I’m getting a lot better (though still not great).
24. I also play oboe. I’m better at that, but don’t find it as fun.
25. I make all my own jewelry. It’s fun to do, cheaper, and I like the results more than store-bought stuff.

Kardamom's avatar

1. I love old kitchen utensils and seek them out at thrift stores (you know, like tea balls and potato mashers and hand held egg beaters)

2. I love wet dog noses.

3. I love to draw, but rarely do it anymore.

4. I’ve been known to have people who are driving me somewhere (mostly my brother) to pull over because I just saw something neato that I have to photograph.

5. Even though I’m not thrilled with okra, I will keep trying it in new presentations and preparations, and so far I’ve actually found two that I liked.

6. Although I am not a Christian, I love Christian Choir music like This

7. In addition to finding recipes for people, I also make up my own recipes, in fact I just entered one into a contest. Cross your fingers!

8. I’d rather watch British period dramas than a baseball game or any other sport for that matter, except for figure skating. This is one of the best figure skating programs I’ve ever seen.

9. I’m a pretty healthy eater, but sometimes I just crave cheesy nachos with jalapeños (and I hope I don’t get modded for using a foreign term)

10. Cat and dog tummies are some of my favorite things.

11. Every now and then, I have to get up into the mountains or else I fear I shall go mad.

12. Like last night, I sometimes dream that I am ice skating (I skated as a kid) but mostly I have nightmares about completely random stuff, but then I forget about them when I wake up. But the ice skating dream was divine, there was also a cute guy involved : P He was wearing burgundy colored corduroy pants, with a brown leather belt. I could just see a sliver of a white dress shirt peaking out above his belt. The he was wearing a plaid sweater vest and he kind of looked like This Guy, but not exactly.

13. Whenever I go out to eat, I always photograph my meal and write mini restaurant reviews on my Facebook page. Most of my relatives and friends are into food, just like I am. I love looking at pictures of good food almost as much as I love eating good food.

14. I enjoy going on day trips with my brother. We usually pick a place within 100 miles of our town, that we either went to as kids, or someplace we’ve never been. We like to look at and photograph architecture, gardens, and public art. We usually figure out a bunch of places to eat, ahead of time, and wherever we find ourselves at lunchtime, we pick one of those places. Unless of course, if we spot some place that’s really keen along the way. When we’re driving along the interstate, we often play This Game. Hilarity ensues.

15. I actually enjoy talking with people while waiting in a long line at the grocery store. I’ve met some really nice people that way.

16. My best friend, who lives in another city, and I will often show up to meet each other wearing an almost identical outfit. We never plan it that way, but it happens most of the time.

17. My Mom and I binge watched Monarch of the Glen and Doc Martin and thanks to @gailcalled Midsomer Murders

18. I watch The Big Bang Theory in re-runs with my Dad, over and over and over, and we both still laugh hysterically. It’s probably the funniest show I’ve ever seen.

19. My dream vacation is to both camp at Yosemite, and then stay at the Ahwahnee Hotel

20. The idea of being in a cabin in the woods with a tin roof, while it’s raining, with a cup of hot Earl Grey tea, a good book, and a kitty actually makes me giddy.

21. I buy most of my clothes from thrift stores.

22. I’d like to have one of These

23. I am a vegetarian, an Anglophile, and a cunning linguist and I’m not afraid to admit it.

24. I never want to travel into space, nor do I ever plan to fly on a plane again. I love me some terra firma (and I hope not to get modded for this foreign term, either).

25. For dinner tonight I’m going to make some homemade baked macaroni and cheese with Trader Joe’s Caramelized Onion Cheddar Cheese, and mushrooms sautéed with shallots.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I like vintage kitchen stuff too!

Coloma's avatar

@Kardamom I LOVE those vintage Airstreams too!

Kardamom's avatar

@Coloma I found this artist called David Lloyd that made a series of paintings of Airstream Trailers. I just can’t believe how he is able to make them look so shiny.

@Dutchess_III I’ve been on the lookout for one of these Egg Beaters. My Grandma had one, with the pink handle just like this one, and my brother inherited it when she passed away around 1983. He’s moved several times since then, and no one knows what happened to it : (

Dutchess_III's avatar

We used to have one of those! They’re cool. Hey. I’ll keep my eyes open at auction. That’s the best place to find stuff like that.

8. I have seen Barbra Streisand in concert four times (just seeing her once was a dream come true for me, I feel blessed to have been able to see her more than that though!)

9. I was bullied at school because of my music taste. I am currently feeling rather smug that Dolly Parton (one of the reasons that kids at school picked on me) was such a success at Glastonbury. I hope the bullies saw her and enjoyed it!!!

10. In case no. 9 didn’t give you a clue, I love country music and wish it was more popular over here in the UK.

25. I have always been indifferent to the idea of marriage, I would even go so far as to say that I don’t really agree with marriage. However, my boyfriend and I have recently found ourselves discussing marriage and I hate to say it but I’m excited about it!

So, would that be one step above steak tartar and one step below rare?

27. I like mayo on my hamburger, along with ketchup and onions.
28. I only like mustard on hamburgers and in potato salads. I also use a little in my baked beans.

OpryLeigh's avatar

Seriously, you guys have never heard of people having their steak blue? Here’s a pretty good explanation.

livelaughlove21's avatar

^That picture nearly made me gag.

I’ve never eaten steak with anyone that ordered theirs any less cooked than medium rare. Even that grosses me out. I don’t eat meat that’s still bleeding.

Coloma's avatar

@livelaughlove21 Agreed, medium well is my style too, more well than medium, I don’t want to see any pink at all.

Dutchess_III's avatar

@Leanne1986….that was simply a rare steak. That looked good. I eat my medium rare, though. I want the center to be at least a little warm.
