Cats like to watch things moving... some cats like a TV, others like to watch out the window. Then, toys. If she's the smart sort, she might like one of those toys where she can stick her paw into holes and look to see where the little ball inside has gone. Or one of the fishing-rod type toys (actu...

Prediction: One day Myspace, Twitter, & Facebook will all merge into one big social networking site. It will be called "MyTwitFace". Everyone will be limited to one word postings such as "happy", "sad", "comatose", etc. Also, everyone will be required by law to put up numerous photos of themsel...

Cats are good at making people understand what they want, often using behaviors out of the norm in cat/cat interactions. If they could actually say "give me a bite of that delicious tuna sandwich", they would. I guess we will have to settle for rubbing on our ankles, reaching of paws, and "meowmeowm...

I know that when I was in elementary school, most of my friends were in the lower grades. I could get along with a few kids that were my own age but I generally had an easier time with the younger kids. They were always much more willing to play with me and much less judgmental. When I was in the lo...

Yes that is pretty much it. I still remember things that were done to me back when I was a kid and they still bring up the old feelings. I even still remember embarrassing things I did when I was a kid and the negative reactions I got from them. I've been wondering, though... We all have this issue...

Ha ha. Never... I have been asked out before though, lucky me I guess. I even said yes once, it wasn't a disaster it even went pretty well, but still can't work up the courage to ask others out. I don't know how to bridge the gap from small talk to asking someone out properly. They pretty much have ...

14 is a little to early to start worrying about being a late bloomer. That said don't give up. Make it a habit to stay social and keep trying, it gets much harder to develop good social habits the older you get so don't get out of practice. To answer the question, I could be considered a late bloome...

I have. It was not a positive experience but I was given it at age 14. What happened to me is it essentially made me a blank slate. So much so that I have very little memory from the time I was on it, but my parents saw what was happening and took me off of it. They said I was like a robot while on ...

Sure I do. I don't even know where to begin when it comes to relationships. Not even just romantic relationships but interpersonal relationships in general. That in and of itself is a lot of baggage for someone else to have to deal with. Who wants to be involved with someone who they would have to t...

Hot. Like really really hot. Not the good "Jessica Alba is so" kind of hot. The drenched in sweat, choking in high humidity, dreading my power bill, "did I just get a third degree burn from my seat belt buckle", can't wait until fall kind of HOT.

I lost confidence after failing my second test. First one I flunked because I hit the curb while parallel parking. I completely screwed up the second one, not knowing how to do a three point turn and phantom cars coming out of nowhere. Haven't practiced in awhile though. Don't have a car that isn't...

Thinking back on this recently I noticed that even in environments where I more or less "thrived" I didn't have many friends. I typically had 1 or 2 friends that I would talk to or play with(when I was a child) and that is it. In early adulthood I had a few friends at one point but it started out wi...
