Re: Women's self defense

I took a Model Mugging course in Boston back in the '80s. It was very intense, but very empowering. They're still in business, but only in certain areas. Worth a google!

Re: What animals are you afraid of?

Spiders, also from seeing a scene from a movie on TV when I was really young. Except in my case the movie was "Tarantula." Because I am old. I can still see that giant bristly leg crashing in through the ceiling. Hairy spiders cause me to make that visceral animal sound of fear. I'm okay w...

Re: When are you superstitious?

I muttered "please be an igglybuff" at several points during my 2km Pokémon Go egg's incubation cycle, and it hatched into an igglybuff, so I did that with my mind. Wait, you have to do that during the incubation cycle? I've only been doing it during the actual hatching. Well that explain...

Re: What do you hate to peel?

1. The sticker that my local dump makes me stick directly on the outside of the car window because god forbid I should merely TAPE it to the window from the inside so it will be easier to peel off next year. 2. Price tags that just won't come off. Or those little gold oval "Made in China" ...

Re: have you had surgery?

Appendectomy, removal of a knife tip from the bone in the top of my foot (now there's a story), wisdom teeth, thyroidectomy, which is too a word, spellcheck, dammit, and lasik eye surgery. Which didn't feel very surgical, to be honest, but it IS called "surgery" so I'm totally counting it.

Re: have you been to a protest?

I used to go to protests and marches quite a bit back in the '80s and '90s. I was in my teens and more into the bonding than the politics, though. Do Pride Parades count? I spent a summer in a percussion group called the Batucada Belles and we went to Pride Parades all over New England.

Crossword puzzle dictionaries, which I think should be against the law. And also the number two. Because I like prime numbers, and odd numbers, and it just bugs me that the number two is both even and prime. Also, grammar pedants who publicly correct others, especially those who do so during real-ti...
