@sandwiches I loved In the Woods! I wasn't as enamored with The Likeness, but really enjoyed Faithful Place.
@Anne Helen Petersen I think my high school might have been 100% The Hicks? FFA, Tractor Driving Team, Skeet Shooting on campus, etc.
Betty Miles! I loved The Real Me, which is about a girl that wants to play tennis instead of taking slimnastics and be a paper deliverer, but isn't allowed to.
I remember being so confused by the fact that she couldn't do these things, and my mom explaining to me about Title IX.
@flanhoodles And the subset to the first 50% is:
90% Grateful that no one can tell what book I'm reading.
10% Sad that no cute person will strike up a conversation about the book I am reading.
50% Silently being thankful that I have a chance to read my book on the Kindle app.
50% Seething irately
@sophia_h My aunt worked for Disney during this time period and has some framed animation cels from that movie...even the stills are terrifying!
@Bgwee I had Fiddler on the Roof that was split into two vhs tapes like that. I probably watched the first tape 200 times, second tape 3 times.
95% Excuse to hire an 80s cover band.
5% Potential to convince (non-existant) fiance to change both our last names to "Spectacular".
My neighbors weren't very good about securing their garbage, so I have been woken up a couple times by bears knocking over their garbage cans. I reported them (the neighbors, not the bears) to the bear police, and it has been better since then.
Come on, people. Garbage is not bear food.
@Emby I grew up in Washington state and we always called it "the 5" and "the 405". Now I live in a weird part of northern California that has almost no native northern Californians, and I feel like we all say different things.
Calling highways/freeways "interstates" bugs me though.
