And the quack is like a word, but no one knows what it means.

don't like: driving down the motorway at a steady 77mph on cruise control in the inside lane, approaching someone slower in the middle lane who is overtaking 2.5km of empty space, overtaking them to find they speed up when you get level so they are now doing the same speed as you side-by-side, then someone with too much testosterone in a BMW drives behind you at a distance of 6.3mm and flashes their lights whilst texting on their mobile, so you speed up to 85mph, but so does the middle laner, who won't pull over, so you crawl past at 87mph whilst the Beemer is by now bright scarlet and it doesn't take much to lip read his obscenities and you eventually get far enough past them to pull back into the middle, the inside lane and watch the BMW zoom off into the distance making rhythmic gestures and the middle-lane-moron disappear at a similar rate in the rear view mirror now they've decided to go back to 70mph.

oh, go.dot, you've just had me ROTFPIMPLOL!

don't like:  those rigid blister pouches that you get with all sorts of computer peripherals, which require garden shears or similar heavy implement (which nevertheless gets blunted) to open them.

like:  I dunno, lots of things.  Today I walked into town, and it was very grey, but the rain was a lovely delicate mist, just like when I first came to England, and it felt nice on my skin.  And then on one of the pedestrianised streets, there was someone playing something like a very complicated xylophone, and I was surprised and pleased by the range of music he was able to produce.

like: the lady sitting opposite me on the train today, very quietly singing to herself. It was barely audible but beautifully sung so I had to subtley strain to listen in. My brain imagined it to be some kind of Hungarian folk song and reminded me of the soundtrack to the English Patient.

don't like: the bloke who sat opposite me on the train yesterday, who sang loudly whilst listening to his i-pod, so he couldn't hear how out of tune he was, or how many of the words he didn't know so they slurred into mistimed yelps, but obviously the rest of the carriage could

Like:  People that reply to my posts.

Dislike:  People that give my work the cold shoulder.  (I'm talking about you, Mike!)

Well, I am a bit like you...but there is something else too. OK, now I reveal it to you all. May the moderators do whatever they want to do for this...but I swear there are no swear words in this.

OK, here we go....

Like: writing and feedback (even it may be harsh at times)
Dislike: my dark side as a writer...and it is hard to explain, but I try.

We all like feedback. I am no exception. Some crits are harsh, some are less harsh. In the beginning I was only able to say the feeling I got from the piece. I mean I said if I liked it or if I did not like it. The reason for my reaction was a mystery for me.

Then I learned the line-by-line way. I began to use it myself, and I noticed it was not that hard, even it takes a lot of patience from the reader.

Some of those who give me the line by line, give me harsh crits. The others give milder crits. I never thought I could give harsh crits, but now I have noticed I am able to do it. And I do it shamelessly, if I feel the piece is too long and won't make progress. And I won't feel pity for the writer. I just let my fingers write as my heart feels.


Now you know my dark side as a writer. But I won't let it get out often.

Whinging is good. I whinge all the time online. In real life, well - if the net isn't real life, but I suppose the physical me that lives beyond my stupid laptop and its stupid wireless connection, doesn't actually complain that much...

Like: Going home for the weekends from uni and having cups of tea made! Like going to the theatre to see Opera and ballets and plays!
Hate: People who TALK in the library really loudly - usually Asian and women, or white and blonde despite the big signs saying SILENCE and NO EATING. Yap, yap yap yap. In my little dictatorship I have planned in my head people who can't shut up in libraries, cinemas, theatres should be shot with a laser gun. I hate them It really winds me up to boiling point. Especially when people bring kids to the opera who begin singing along. Yes, singing along. Or coughing as hard as possible. I hate people who cannot shut up in the correct places or people rustling bags in cinemas when you're trying to be engrossed in the film. Many a time I have wondered what it would be like just to kick the back of their heads... obviously I wouldn't as I am a calm, gentle young person and due to society's constraints of course would not dream of accidently allowing my foot to slip! But I HATE PEOPLE like that with a passion. It is the one thing that does make me really, very very angry the simple fact people can't abide by the rules of shutting up when you're supposed to. It is called respect and decency, do people these days have no idea? If you want to talk, go to the cafeteria, not babble and talk and drink and eat in the uni library so I cannot concentrate on my work. It is just so selfish and I hate people who do not appreciate other people or specific rules of certain places - like in libraries of cinemas. It's just plain rude and is the only time when I feel like doing them some violence.

Hope I ain't scared no one.  :-X

No, not at all.  If it's not too much to ask, simply posting here the name of the cinema, film and time of showing (say 24 hours ahead of time) will, I am sure enable other MWC members to take the appropriate evasive action.  :-*

Like: Chocolate muffin for dinner
Dislike: sick feeling after stuffing face full of two chocolate muffins for dinner. I also dislike choco pop tarts for containing pork gelatin because I'm a veggie and can't eat. :( I would like to know why it has to have geletin?

Edit: I can't type. I dislike my keyboard - I have a laptop and it is horrible. It's hard using normal keyboards now especially now I'm used to the more compact laptop keyboard - or when you move onto another computer and get used to that keyboard so when I come back to my laptop my fingers are no longer used to it. Meh. Maybe it's only me. But I don't look at the keys when I type usually, so you get used to the position of the keys. I'm so much better typing on my laptop then a normal computer keyboard now.

Lol, no - although I realised I only had chocolate cake yesterday for lunch and dinner... felt sick at night. :(
