Unrequited
If you could have returned the love of someone you rejected in the past, who would it be?

Hobbies
List your hobbies.

Word Use
If you could prevent someone you know from overusing one word, what would the word be?


Unrequited

I don't recall ever rejecting anyone (knowingly). Although once, at a party, a casual (VERY casual) acquaintance mentioned to me that it was "too bad" I was taken or he'd be "after" me. Yech! I immediately went to find Spouse and gave him a big hug and told him how very glad I was that he was in my life! I wouldn't go back and pick up with anyone in my past. I'm quite content with Spouse and life as it is.

Cityscape

San Francisco fits both Spouse and self well. Seattle has good vibes but poor weather. Vancouver might be nice, but again, the weather give it lower marks. We both like the "live and let live" attitude of San Francisco and the SF Bay Area in general. That said, I'm not a City person; I don't like the noise, the congestion, the smells, the parking. So the _region_ that best suits my personality is... the SF Bay Area, the Peninsula in particular. And what ho! That's where we live.

Hobbies

My hobbies include reading, playing with the cats, programming, snuggling with the cats, reading, creating web pages, chasing the cats, going for walks with Spouse, hugging the cats, writing for my Journal or one of my weblogs, creating weblog entries for the cats, reading, sending email, taking photos of the cats, and reading (with the cats).

Word Use

I'm not a fan of either sh*t or f*ck. I don't use either; I don't like hearing them. I'd be happy to prevent anyone within my circle of friends and acquaintances from uttering those two "words" in casual conversation. If you need an expletive, there are many more interesting choices. If you simply need a filler word... you really don't need a filler word.
