Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I only want friends that harbor secrets and surprises.

Scratch that. I only HAVE friends that harbor secrets and surprises.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I don't like Pearl Jam.

That is all.

No, I've had some friends reveal some intense surprises. I have a close friend, one who many people thought had it all together, etc., tell me he had cheated on his wife multiple times with prostitutes. He's worked through it, etc. but I think of him every time a politician gets busted.

I think all of us have secrets. I don't like explaining goodreads to most of my friends...so I guess this is a secret. Shh.

message 3: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i want a friend who is secretly a CIA hitman and who i recognize in a fake mustache with a violin case when i am traveling internationally somewhere

message 4: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i like pearl jam the first 20 minutes they came out and then they did that eddie and the cruisers song thing and totally fell out of like with them. now nirvana gets better each time i hear an old song teen spirit makes me sorta wanna kick a hole in an amplifier.

RA - when i tell someone that my new social network is a book readers cult they look at me with a look that i misinterpret as envy but i think must really be disbelief

message 5: by Danielle (new)

Danielle (dreamelis) | 53 comments I actually think I'm going to be able to get quite a few people into Good Reads. I sent out invites yesterday and three people have already joined. We'll see.

But yeah, I take a long time to get really comfortable/close with someone, so I have a lot of people I'd almost consider friends, who I don't actually know that well. I have one very close friend, though, who I think once in a while tries to keep a secret, but they almost all eventually come out. My last ex, though, is now one of my best friends. We became very close very fast and had a pretty intense relationship. I know he trusts me more than he trusts most people, and still, every once in a while he'll mention something that makes me go, "I can't believe you never told me that!"

I don't think there's any such thing as full disclosure. Sometimes people intentionally hide things and sometimes they just never come up, but between the two, it's a pretty sure bet that there will always be some surprises.

message 6: by Danielle (new)

Danielle (dreamelis) | 53 comments And I don't like Pearl Jam either :)

message 7: by [deleted user] (last edited Jan 12, 2009 06:06PM) (new)

I don't, either, but I sure did in 1995! See my shirt:

On the back it said, "9 out of 10 children prefer crayons to guns." I have no idea if that's true or what, but I sure loved it at the time!

message 8: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments yes! best pic i have seen in awhile. i had my senior pic taken in a Queen concert tee shirt. crimper was working O.T. that night. this pic reminds me of the song Stacey's Mom

message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

The crimper was a throw-back, of course. We were at camp, so we went crazy! Watch out!

I love my huge glasses.

How old were you in 1995 Montambo? You look young here, but I thought you were the same age as me. I graduated high school in 1996.

Danielle, I'm like you. I have many friends, but few who are so close that there aren't many things they don't know about me. My two closest friends have seen me through my darkest days, and I just couldn't not tell them some things. In general, though, the people that I know only know me from the outside, and I let them believe what they may about me. I used to go around telling every new friend I met all that I could about myself. But in the past ten years I've discovered that people come and go, and the more I disclose about myself, the more they take with them about me when they go.

message 11: by [deleted user] (last edited Jan 12, 2009 06:53PM) (new)

I graduated in 1994, Sally. So I was almost 19, here.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
Oh wowza! You're, like, my elder!

message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

You're my sister's age (pat, pat).

message 14: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i was gonna put a pic in here from when i was about that age but i didn't know how to paste one. you will just have to trust me that i was a total dork

message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

Yay KD! Now, everybody share!

message 16: by Dave (new)

Dave Russell Me in 1995:


I looked really young for my age.

message 17: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments how the heck do you paste in a pic?

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Click above the comment box where it says (some html is ok) and it will explain how to post a picture.

Except that first you have to locate the picture on the internet and right-click (or ctrl-click on an apple) and then select copy image location.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
Seriously, peepers, I don't have a scanner at home. Do you all? How do you do this?

message 20: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) KD, I love that pic of you circa 1994.

Something tells me you'd still strike that same pose today.

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

My printer is an all-in-one.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17319 comments Mod
KD, I would have had a crush on you in 1994.

message 23: by Kevin (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I'm waiting for Gus to chime in with when he graduated from high school.

Me - '91. I'm older than youse (so far). :)

Our class song was Garth Brooks' The Dance. Thank god it beat out Whitney Houston's Greatest Love of All. The Dance is way cooler.

message 26: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments yikes. i wore a tux like on My Cousin Vinny to the prom in high school. that tells you how old i am

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Oh, I'm sure Gus has you beat, too, Mindy. He's REALLY old. :)

Well Kevin, I was out of high school in 1980, and Mindy 1989 don't make me laugh.

Matthieu | 1009 comments Ha, I'll graduate in June. I'm a baby.

message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

I'd take it, but I can't see it.

message 35: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I also graduated in 1989. I didn't go to my prom, sported a mullet, and saw Genesis at Giants Stadium. Hah!

Heidi, have you been talking to my wife again? She loves to call me an old geezer.

message 36: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments :) Jaime rocks.

message 37: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments My first concert was Cyndi Lauper in New Orleans (where I was living at the time). Opening act - The Bangles.

Montambo, I saw Pearl Jam in concert, too. I was in college... prolly around 92ish.

message 38: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments what was the last concert you went to?

message 39: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments I think there's a thread about concerts, isn't there?

message 40: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Hmmm... Brandi Carlile/Indigo Girls at Robinson Auditorium. I have to be honest, though. I was there to see Brandi Carlile perform. I didn't know any Indigo Girls songs. Brandi Carlile stole the show. :)

Before that, I saw Joan Jett at Riverfest Amphitheatre (she was awesome) - an outdoor concert venue.

message 41: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments I saw Brandi Carlile with the Indigo Girls, and yes, she was fabulous, but I DO know a lot of Indigo Girls songs, and I thought they were just amazing. And then the finale was "Closer to Fine," and Brandi and the twins came out and joined them on that one, and it was... oh, I'm choking up right now just thinking about it.

message 42: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i saw kenny wayne shepherd late last fall at the Indy Rib Fest. very good.

message 43: by Heidi (last edited Jan 13, 2009 07:36AM) (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Mindy, I was told the Indigo Girls are great in concert! One of the gals was v. sick, though... as in she-should've-been-in-a-hospital sick. Some of the gals I was with who are diehard fans told me that it affected their performance and that it was unusual. The concert itself had a great energy... it was sooo different from what I've experienced at other concerts. Maybe it was the audience?

OH! I forgot about the Blue October concert... I saw them after Joan Jett. They were great, too.

message 44: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments You must've seen them not too long after I did, Heidi, b/c Amy was sick during the show here, too, but it wasn't so bad that her performance was affected. Lol, her voice did crack on the intro to one song (which begins with just her voice kinda shouting-singing something), so she had to restart it. It was CUTE! All this time I have NEVER thought Amy or Emily was attractive, but especially not Amy. But when I saw them live (and we were very close to the stage, so I got a good view), I thought she was totally ADORABLE!

message 45: by Dave (new)

Dave Russell You caught me Heidi. That picture is actually from 1990. I always lie about my age.

message 46: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I think you're fibbing again, Dave.

message 47: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Mindy... cute, eh? Is that what it takes... a voice crack? :)

message 48: by Meen (last edited Jan 13, 2009 11:23AM) (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments Well, I'd never seen her in person, and I didn't realize she was so tall and thin. (Of course, she may have just looked tall b/c she was on stage.) But it was more like just her personality, the ease with which she performed. And yeah, the voice crack was cute. She blushed!

Sandy (FoggedIn) | 138 comments Y'all are so funny. I'm so old I saw The Everly Brothers in Honolulu when I was 13. I think I'm your great grandmother. :-)
