The Christmas when I got my Holly Hobbie cardboard playhouse, my Holly Hobbie doll and my Raggedy Ann.

I think it was around 1974-1975.

It's been all downhill from there. :wink:

One of my favourite memories is playing Smash Bros. with my brother.

Are you a deep or light sleeper?

Yes. I’m afraid of everything in general.

Hyper-vigilance is my default state.

Same question

Yes. I thought that I was just afraid of impending social interactions with people but have recently discovered that it goes much deeper than that - I am afraid for my life around people; apparently, no matter how incapable they are of physically harming me. i.e. A deaf/blind 97-year-old using a walker coming around a blind corner will send me into a blind panic. A panic, I would note, that I've hidden from the world so well that even I didn't see it until very recently.

(By the way, I just want to interject here how unique of an experience it is for me to share that and NOT expect to be made fun of, or humiliated, or yelled at for saying so. It is amazing and I'm grateful to WP and the people who make it up)

Speaking of gratitude, my question is: What are you grateful for today?

I'm grateful my church has been able to replace our former minister, a wonderful woman whose leadership was extraordinary and progressive. Our new priest is an openly gay man. He and his husband have worked in community mental health and long-term psychiatric care settings since being ordained nearly 40 years ago.

Bravo.

I'm grateful for cats.

And I'm glad that your surgery went well, kraftie, and I hope you continue to recover well!

Do you like when animals meow/bark/whatever at you?

I love when cats meow at me and when dogs bark at me. Having animals acknowledge me like that is cute.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair cats?

I prefer long hair cats.

What is your favorite pet (regardless of whether or not you have one)?

We had a bunny but it didn't live up to expectations...I think he was neurotypical. We don't currently have, or want, a pet but we very much like cats.

What is some unusual experience you've had? (i.e. I once went thirty days without food, went down the Yukon river in an inner tube almost 1400 miles of it anyway, etc.

I spent an hour of my last birthday sawing open a human skull for my anatomy class.

Do you have a favorite loanword, and if so, what is it?
