Rissreads You sound like a very interesting person! 😊 2mo
kgriffith Would love to know more about 16 🤓 2mo
Fridameetslucy @kgriffith I taught undergrad courses on cultural patrimony and memory (cultural property/cultural memory ), fairytales as cultural discourse and the design history of childhood. Plus a zillion years ago I taught the first design history of tattoo course in NYC (a weird claim to fame) you can see my work on Instagram under same name as in Litsy. (edited) 2mo
kgriffith @Fridameetslucy I would register for all of those classes! 2mo
Fridameetslucy @kgriffith ME TOO!! But then I always realized that I had to teach them :) I‘ve been updating and writing up my lectures from my “fairytales as cultural discourse” lectures to turn them into a blog or a book. Would love to hear your thoughts on a few chapters (edited) 2mo

@MrsMalaprop @Rissreads Took me ages to master but I‘ve done it after a fashion! Now you will need to explain hash tags to me and why I would use them!

Jeg I see number 1 not there it‘s I‘m a Rod Stewart fan! 3mo
MrsMalaprop 👏👏👏💕💕💕🤗🤗🤗 3mo
vumblereads I love swimming too though right now I‘m not as fit as I want to be. Anxiety also bothers me. 3mo

vumblereads Hashtags are great for letting your post be known when someone searches for a specific topic. 😃 not sure if I explained that well 3mo
Rissreads Well done @Jeg ! You did it! I loved reading more about you 💜 It‘s nice to know another Rod Stewart fan. (edited) 3mo
CarolynM Great list! It's nice to get to know a bit more about our Litsy friends. I'm with you on Rod Stewart's music in the '70's, not so sure about his later output. (edited) 3mo
Suet624 I loved reading your list. I tried making a list and could only think of 6 things! I‘ll have to try again. 😁 you and I share many traits. 💕 3mo

NoConcernsForCarol I‘m with you on not liking fish I‘m scared of every animal that lives in water I love the beach the few times I‘ve been to it but am afraid of everything in the water I‘m glad I‘m not alone in this fear 3mo
mellissimo @Tanisha_A Of course! If I will ever finish it 😅 The most difficult thing I crocheted before was a scarf ;) 3mo
mellissimo @NoConcernsForCarol Good to know I'm not alone. I actually only developed it over time. I had an aquarium as a teenager and the longer I watched the fish and had to clean it and get rid of the dead ones the more disgusted I got by them 😅 3mo
mabell Fashion designer! What a cool job! 3mo
Reggie Don‘t worry about 20. Lol I can‘t tell you how many times I‘ve used the wrong words for something. Meh, we‘re all human. 3mo
UwannaPublishme Loud noises make me crazy too, especially those garden blowers. As for #20, no need to feel anxious. We‘re all fallible friends. 😊💕 3mo
Erofan Wow! 👍👍👍 2mo
Rissreads This was great! And yes don‘t worry about #20, littens are not judgemental at all, only amazingly supportive! 😊 2mo

@Rissreads I‘m cheating a bit here. I knew I‘d done this challenge before. So I scrolled back through my posts & found it from about 2 years ago 😁.

Rissreads I‘ve learnt a few new things about you x 3mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I cheated too!! Someone from #LitsyLove asked me to do it so I used my first one! Not much had changed 😉 3mo

Carla How do you become ordained? Being a run of the mill Scottish-Episcopalian who is fascinated by comparative religion studies, I hope you don‘t mind my asking. (I‘m of course open to why-do-Christians-do-that and is-that-awful-thing-they‘re-claiming-really-Christian (answer‘s probably no) questions in return. 😎) 3mo

Carla @TheReadingMermaid I surely will, and I appreciate it! Look for chufstedler@icloud.com 3mo
mysterygirl818 I love it 3mo
BethM What does #9 mean? We got married by a Wiccan and my mother in law was sooooooo pissed at me 😂 3mo
TheReadingMermaid @BethM sorry that kind of got cut off a little bit. I'm studying for my second degree ordination. There are three degrees total that I can be ordained in. I am currently a first-degree and studying for my second. 3mo
BethM Cool good for you! That sounds totally awesome! 3mo
TheReadingMermaid @BethM I will have to have you email me the story of how you got married by a Wiccan Priestess. That sounds very interesting 🤔 3mo

CindyMyLifeIsLit @Lcsmcat So your anniversary is the 7th? I guess it was a good year, although we were two idiots who just got lucky! I was 21 and he was 22, we‘d been dating less than a year, and we were both college dropouts, barely making enough to live on! 🤪 We turned out okay, though. 5mo

Number 21: I found it really difficult coming up with 20 things 😊

Mitch I‘m addicted to Australian Masterchef! 5mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego If you don't already follow dswt on Instagram (Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya). It's an elephant rehabilitation centre. We fostered one last Xmas (Enkesha) and then went to visit her last summer. Such an amazing experience! 🐘 5mo
sudi I love Masterchef too, my favorites are Australia and USA 5mo

Marina_h @Mitch @sudi Australian Masterchef is my favourite as well! But we have to wait half a year or so before it's shown in Tv here, so I've only just started the 2018 series. 5mo
Marina_h @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego that sounds amazing! I already follow them and I love what they do to help elephants. I have a soft spot for Maarifa the baby rhino 😍 5mo
sudi @Marina_h same here, it's so weird, we get to view game of thrones within 12 hours of it's USA premiere but they can't show Masterchef that early 😒 5mo
Eggs Welcome to Litsy 🌺 5mo
hilded You‘ve never read Harry Potter?! Wow! 😂 I‘ve only read it once myself (when they came out), so I think I need to re-read soon! 5mo
Marina_h @hilded yeah I'm one of the few. I plan on reading them one day so I can get an idea of what everybody is raving about 😁 5mo
hilded Maybe 2019 is the year, most of them should fit well with your chonk plan this year I think 😊 5mo
Marina_h @hilded There's an idea 👍 I'll have to see if I can borrow them from the library 5mo

Blaire @LibrarianJen yes! The 5:15 is so I get a little alone time before kids get up and day really starts. But I tend to stick to that time on weekends as well. 7 is majorly sleeping in. 5mo

justanothermusing I'm glad to know someone else loved that movie as a kid. Its where I learned what incest was and felt the need to educate everyone else. I'm pretty sure there was a parent teacher as a result. 5mo
LibrarianRyan #9. Love it. 👍🏻😁🤓 5mo
CaroPi @justanothermusing Well my parents are very liberal so I didn't understood why the other kids couldn't know about this great movie. I wanted to talk about the twist... My mom and I talked about it recently. It seems that was not a good parents teacher meeting (edited) 5mo

CaroPi @TheBookHippie and can you believe that I still didn't read the book? That movie is so important to me that I don't want to get disappointed (with the movie) after reading the book. 5mo

squirrelbrain Well done for being so brave and don‘t be embarrassed.... Many of us share many of your ‘20 things‘ and we‘re all here for each other. ❤️ 5mo
Crazeedi I did the same thing , I'm so tech challenged I still cant figure out how to get all mine on one blurb, but I'm working on it 5mo

gradcat @Crazeedi And thank you very much, by the way! You‘re wonderful! 5mo
gradcat @Crazeedi I see your text re smoking on my page, but not on this post. I did do it cold turkey. At first I tried e-cigarettes, but they made me cough so much, that I stopped that after two or three days. At the time, e-cigs were all the rage—I guess now some folks think they are as bad as regular cigarettes, so who knows anymore? But good luck & and if you do it, I‘ll be a cheerleader 📣 for you! ❤️ 5mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego That's for sharing!! Nothing to be embarrassed about. 💖 5mo
Trashcanman Hugs thanks for sharing and don't be embarrassed! I understand being agoraphobic and where in Los Angeles did you live? That's where I'm from. What's your favorite cocktail? What's your real name? How tall are you with shoes on? Are you right or left handed? 5mo
sixgun @gradcat what do you think of Britbox... I really want it but I need to justify it. Vera, Doc Martin, Upstairs Downstairs, Are you being served?, Keeping up appearances, Etc... I need these in my life. But does Britbox do classics? 5mo

gradcat @sixgun Okay...just checking for you...Britbox has Vera, Doctor Who (but not Doc Martin), Upstairs, Downstairs (the original), Are You Being Served? & Keeping up Appearances. Doc Martin is on Acorn. Not sure exactly what you mean by classics, but they definitely have some old Agatha Christie mysteries. Anything else? I can easily check for you, so just let me know. 😊👌🏻 5mo
gradcat @Trashcanman Okay, here goes: First, Hollywood, then West Hollywood, and finally Silver Lake. I absolutely love martinis 🍸 with vodka & olives. My name is Minette Watkins, and depending on the heel size, I usually top 6 feet. Lastly, right-handed...does this tell you anything interesting? 😂👍😍 5mo
Trashcanman @gradcat this all goes in my files that I have on various Littens. Thank you 5mo
gradcat @Trashcanman Okay, how much blackmail money do you want? 💸😂 5mo
Trashcanman @gradcat Lmao 🤣🤣🤣 and congrats on quitting smoking. I smoked from 17-24 and still want a cigarette after dinner sometimes 5mo
Itchyfeetreader Thanks for sharing - I find I am more open on Litsy than elsewhere - people are super friendly and kind. 5mo
gradcat @Trashcanman For me, giving up cigarettes is, without a doubt, the hardest thing I‘ve ever done...and the worst thing about it? I‘m still quitting, because not a single day goes by that I don‘t want one. Truly, I don‘t know how I did it! 🤷🏽‍♀️🚭😂 5mo
Trashcanman @gradcat you know how you did it? You did it because you are a bad ass. Simple as that 5mo
gradcat @Itchyfeetreader Isn‘t it the truth? There‘s some unwritten code of deferring to others‘ wishes, and/or an instinctive golden rule....👍❤️ 5mo
gradcat @Trashcanman Thanks! You are the nicest person!! 😊❤️👍 Keep it up!! 😂🤣 5mo
sixgun @gradcat... Oh my goodness, oh my goodness. I think I may go that way over Netflix. But I think the only way to watch Good Omens is on Amazon. So much Tennant, so little time. 5mo
Freespirit You sound awesome @gradcat 5mo
gradcat @Freespirit Wow! Thank you SO much for saying that...you cannot possibly know how much that means to me...thank you, thank you, just—thank you! 🙏🥰 5mo
gradcat @sixgun If you have Amazon Prime on Roku, is it offering you the option to get Britbox through them? Oh, and by the way, Netflix is about to increase their subscription price, the bastards!! 😱 5mo
sixgun I saw that about Netflix. I get an email daily asking me to come back. Ummmm.... No. I have 2 fire sticks, I am looking for the box that has the remotes. Mother of God! I've seen commercials for Britbox on cable. Why do I have cable? I don't know, honestly. The dh said we needed cable. So, we have cable. 5mo
gradcat @sixgun I‘ve seen those ads with Alan Davies...he was in one of my favorite shows from the ‘90s called “Jonathan Creek.” Did you ever watch that show? It‘s sooo good! Anyway, they seem to be pushing the ads for subscriptions at the moment. Personally, I love it 🥰! 5mo
sixgun He looked familiar, but I've not seen the show. I'm going to have to go find it. 5mo
gradcat @sixgun If you google him, you‘ll find he‘s been in loads of shows. At the moment, he runs a panel show called “As Yet Untitled”...it‘s hilarious! 😂🤣😆 5mo

sixgun We need to compare #4... Scared just prove a love of life! 5mo
MaGoose I can sympathize with #13. I am overweight and have a hard time losing it. 5mo
gradcat @robinb My mom and I affectionately (very) call him the elephant...Okay, so obvious, but it‘s become shorthand for sooo sexy!! 😂😍🤣 5mo
gradcat @MaGoose If you‘ve got any great ideas or recipes, let me know. I utterly hate it, but I‘m not sure I want to quit eating the things I love! 😢🍰🍷 5mo
gradcat @sixgun Exactly!! I have them everywhere, plus loads of healed-over broken bones 🦴 😂😱 5mo
robinb @gradcat I love it! 🤣🤣 He‘s just so yummy (and of course a talented actor as well)!!! 😊🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo
Purrfectpages Congrats on kicking the habit! 5mo
gradcat @Purrfectpages Thanks for saying that!! 😊❤️ 5mo
sixgun @gradcat yup... Me too. But my husband who served in the Corps for years and years has never broken a bone, and has exactly one scar, where a round ricocheted into his face. I broke an ankle getting on the school bus once. 5mo
gradcat 😂 Sorry to laugh, but you sound like you‘re as clumsy as I am...I once fell going down those few steps (about 3?) outside the front door 🚪 🤕 😂, and broke two bones 🦴 in my wrist!! (edited) 5mo

gradcat Super Mario mascot—I love it 😍! But I‘m so sorry that you‘re allergic to cats 🐈, but fish are nice, too 🐠 ❤️! 5mo
AlobelThee @Maewyn Thanks! 🤓💛 5mo
AlobelThee @gradcat I do love cats, to take my meds while visiting friends. 😹 We'd like to eventually get a dog, once seeing how the house move goes for pet opportunities. 5mo
gradcat I hope your move goes well, and for selfish reasons (because I love, love, love all of the Litsy pets pix!), I hope you are able to get a dog!! 🐕 🏡 👍 5mo
LeahBergen Awesome! 5mo

Kaye #13. I have notice LOTS of Litsy people with this answer. May I just say that I think it‘s great for those that choose not to have kids. I like that there‘s more freedom, I guess you‘d call it, for females to decide that they‘d rather not have kids, and rather have a career. In my younger years, you could make that choice, but I personally don‘t know very many who did. It was a struggle to choose how to do both, or which to choose. 5mo
TheLibrarian @kaye Agree! Years ago it was expected of females to have children which I don‘t think is fair. Thankfully my husband is 100% on board with not having children. I also don‘t know how I‘d handle pregnancy with my mental health issues and between mine and my husband‘s family history, our kid would most likely have a lot of problems. 5mo
LibrarianRyan ⭐️🤓👍 5mo

Kaye I just remember struggling with the choice. We were expected to have families, so most did. I also had a career that I loved more than life itself. When we had kids, it became too hard to juggle both, as your husband was the “ main breadwinner” of the family, even though our wages at that time were about the same. I was expected to sacrifice my career to be the parent. I‘m not saying I‘m sorry I had kids. I just wish I could have the choice you do 5mo
wanderinglynn 💜💜💜 Love my Subaru! I named her Slyvie. 😉 5mo
TheLibrarian @wanderinglynn Cute name! When my old one got totaled, my husband made fun of me for only test driving Subaru‘s. 5mo
Krisjericho So interesting that you are a librarian at a seminary. I am also non-religious, and religion fascinates me. 5mo
nudibranch Yessss subarus!! 🤘 5mo
shadowspeak17 #9 You should visit Hutto, TX. Hippos are the city‘s mascot, and they are more than a little proud of it. 😂 There are hippo statues all over the place. 🦛🧡 5mo
TheLibrarian @shadowspeak17 OMG that has to be one of the best places in the U.S. and is going on my travel list! 5mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz No 16!!!😱😱That's just way too awesome!! Show us a pic pleeeeease??? ☺️☺️If you don't mind, that is :) 5mo
TheLibrarian @Jee_HookedOnBookz I‘ll try and post one tonight. It‘s really small and disorganized. 5mo
GypsyKat I also used to be addicted to WoW! I took a four year break from it and now I just play casually. ❤️ 5mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @TheLibrarian oh! Don't bother if it's too much work :) I just love seeing other book lovers' libraries! Plus I don't have one, and would love to have one, one day. Meanwhile, I live vicariously through other ppl's home libraries :) 5mo
