I don't want them to know I listen to Ricki Martin and other pop stars. I don't want them to know my mailman has a restraining order against me and that I'm sitting here by the mailbox waiting for him as I'm "livin la vida loca." It's embarassing. Anyone else?

Wow, I'm thinking about having my extra toe removed by Dr. Rey from Dr. 90210... how about you third nipple? By the way, do you have a name for your nipple? Or is that just a perverted thing for you to do.

Me too. It gets ridiculous when I pretend to be a pilot long enough that they start giving me planes to fly. I've pulled it off every time so far, though.

Does everyone feel that way?! :eek:

I've been wondering if becoming a parent is the final step in becoming a true adult. Or is that just an act, too?

Moose, it's all an act. I wish a 'parent handbook' had popped out right after my kids. But it didn't.

I wouldn't have been in such a hurry to grow up if I knew the whole thing was going to be ad-libbed. (borrowed from Calvin & Hobbes - truer words were never spoken).

I thought you said "pooped" not "popped". I was like "ouch! She just pooped a large book". Sorry, just woke up. :sleep: :laugh:

It's weird, because as a kid I feel I was genuine, but as an adult it feels like ad-lib. What's the difference?

Something I wouldn't want them to know... my bedroom is messy-- stacks of books and paper everywhere.

Maybe I shouldn't want them to know that sometimes I'm a big, fat procrastinator but on the other hand, I kind of do!

Example:

This week I had to complete a 15-week clinical/analytical chemistry course in FOUR DAYS. Yes, I know, big procrastinator. But the impressive part was that I memorized 800+ pages of material and still got a 93%. I was pretty damn impressed with myself. I think that shows that I can be very disciplined and I have a good brain. :)

I also kind of wish that I could tell them just how squarely responsible I am: that I NEVER speed, have never gotten a ticket of any kind, had my name written on the chalkboard one time in my life (6th grade, I cried), have never done anything remotely illegal, and I even pick up other people's litter.

So square... so so square...

As a kid you've got your parents to protect you, to help you along, to praise you, to congratulate you, to guide you. When you grow up you're on your own - protect yourself, help yourself, praise yourself, congratulate yourself, and no guidance other than looking in the mirror every morning saying "what the f*&k am I doing? Is this really what I want to do every day? There has GOT to be more to life than this... this isn't what I signed up for." And then you start looking for what you really want to do in life; when you find it you feel less like you're just MSU'ing it. (MSU = Make S**t Up)

That I think much of internal medicine is an expensive sham. Give me a scalpel and something to aim it at anyday, over a parade of gomers and veggies who just need to die.

Also, reading the "strangest interviews" thread has shown me a disturbing phenomenon - the psych interviewer who spends the hour grilling you about your childhood. That happens, I'm really doomed. :scared: I don't condone lying in interviews, but if this comes up...argh, but I'm a bad liar...maybe I'll just fake a seizure.

So I think you should know: I've killed a lot of people. Some girls in the apartment uptown uh, some homeless people maybe 5 or 10 um an NYU girl I met in Central Park. I left her in a parking lot behind some donut shop. I killed Bethany, my old girlfriend, with a nail gun, and some man uh some old ****** with a dog last week. I killed another girl with a chainsaw, I had to, she almost got away and uh someone else there I can't remember maybe a model, but she's dead too. And Paul Allen. I killed Paul Allen with an axe in the face, his body is dissolving in a bathtub in Hell's Kitchen. I don't want to leave anything out here. I guess I've killed maybe 20 people, maybe 40. I have tapes of a lot of it, uh some of the girls have seen the tapes. I even, um... I ate some of their brains, and I tried to cook a little. Tonight I, uh, I just had to kill a LOT of people. And I'm not sure I'm gonna get away with it this time. I guess I'll uh, I mean, ah, I guess I'm a pretty uh, I mean I guess I'm a pretty sick guy. So, if you get back tomorrow, meet me at Harry's Bar, so you know, keep your eyes open.
