Wednesday, September 5: Tell us about a time something started out badly for you, but ended well.

Most recent would be losing my job; I have a new job now, and it is one that I vastly prefer and am very happy with.

Thursday, September 6: 

What is the funniest actual name you've heard of someone having?

I've known a few:

Justin Tyme

Candace Kane. (nick-name candy)

Sorry, but there weren't really any standouts to mention here.

Oof. Sorry I'm late; fell asleep.

 

Saturday, September 8: When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about?

They'd better NOT try asking me about dinosaurs!:lol:

*When* I'm old? (Woohoo, I'm a youthful 47 year old!)

 

In the days of old, TV viewing felt worthwhile, even if screens were less 20 inches or less. Saturday morning cartoons were a sacred tradition. After that, we went outside without risking cancer causing sunburns, only regular sunburns. No Internet yet, so paper books and magazines were our sources of information. If you had an electronic toy, it would go through batteries like you wouldn't believe. When you had a hobby, you committed to it!

Yes you are young whippersnapper.  What electronic toys?  Saturdays did not have cartoons until I was older.  I can almost remember getting a TV.  I do remember the first color TV.

Had my oldest ask me if we had colour tv when I was a kid. I was born in '74. :blink:

Sunday, September 9: What is something that will always be in fashion, no matter how much time passes?

 

Don't know if I've ever been in fashion so I'm not qualified to answer this.

I was going to say painting minis, but Cyradis beat me to such an answer.  Hmmmmm.....

 

 

 

...So instead I'll say mohawks and "bondage" styled pants (think Tripp NYC).  And dancing "like a fool" in the view of outsiders, whom I don't care about their opinions because I'm having a good time!

 

Spoiler

Man I miss my mohawk.  Stupid corporate work environment not allowing 6" hot neon pink mohawks no matter how awesome they are on you....

I’ve been known to start telling credulous younglings about my pet brontosaurus ...and how much I miss him. Snif. ::(:

Hats ...nope. 

Neckties ...nope. 

Miniskirts ...nope?

Shoes ...I predict Nope. 

Belts ...not even belts.

Leggin’s ...rather hoping not. 

 

Fashion is by definition ephemeral and fleeting.

 

Gold jewelry/bling is perhaps an exception; it’s on a 7000 year and counting streak but at some point I think even the basic gold necklace disappears.

I think jeans, of one sort of another. I mean, Fry still wears them in the year 3000.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, .February 2020 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
       
      All HAIL WOOF!
