The foliage is out and looking pretty nicely I might add, in my home state of Massachusetts. Do you prefer the leafs glistening golden/orangey or ruby red?
it's like midway in New York. I don't want winter to come. MAKE IT GO AWAYYYYY (throwing self on floor kicking and screaming)
"Silver and gold... silver and gold"
I love Rudolph
Yukon Cornelius,. Yahoooooooooo!!!
Pipes you're looking a little scraggly in your profile pic...
That my friend is the inspiration for nike's "just do it". I told you I was buff in history.
I'm thinking of a bi, or tri weekly history lesson through my profile pic and description.
I never doubted your historical knowledge. And you inspired me to Wikipedia Gary Gilmore extensively. Why is that your prof pic?
You basically just answered that. Interesting. Is this what you've been learning from the lovely website we like to call YouTube?
One tidbit, yes. How did you know he was Gary Gilmore? Or did you search it? I have lots more facts in the way. So many in fact, I'll just change it daily. Like titicaca, and Ohio, and William Henry Harrison, and Neil Armstrong. The list goes on.
Knowledge is a powerful tool, if there's one thing you take from talking to me on SOH, take that......
They just found all these bones in Lake Titicaca a couple weeks ago. In case you're interested and didn't already know.
Also, I had to look up Gilmore :) didn't know much about him. And why didn't you go on air tonight??!
Bones? Really? Interesting. I know the lake because it's the highest navigable lake in the world. "in case you're interested and didn't already know" ;D. I don't have a webcam, and even if I did, I'd probably be reluctant. And I can ask the same...
....question to you, miss!
But you have your iPad...that has a front facing camera, doesn't it?
And you already know I wouldn't go on soh ioa
Ya but I'd prefer a webcam. And maybe I'm just as reluctant as you. So you're in no place to judge there. I think you should go on or at least be less conservative. I myself am too shy. Pretty flowers by the way.
Thanks! And it's basically a webcam :)
And you aren't shy! You talk to me all the time! And you impart your extensive knowledge on the show of hands community all the time!
Duuuuude come on you'd do so well!
I'd prefer not to do it on my iPad. And technically you impart your info to the SOH community too. But ya, I'm shy. You'd do well too. Better that me!
Talking (typing) to someone on SOH comment sections are different than going on SOHOA.
We'd both do well, how about that? :)
I'm watching sohoa and I could've totally spiced it up! We need to have people pick up the pace, there needs to be more back and forth. I like the way rob talks, though.
Ugh, you're soo hyper, and talkative, and social. Which is ironic since your so conservative. If you want to spice things up, go ahead. Ah, so you gotta thing for rob. I see...;D
Ummmm I meant I like how rob is more combative and straightforward on sohoa. Anyway, I like people and I like talking to people and having discussions and stuff. I don't like advertising myself on the Internet.
Was making a joke. I Realized what you liked about him. Ya, I don't like that personality very much. I don't think this is really advertising yourself on the Internet. Technically this isn't even the Internet. You could do much worse.
This is totally the Internet. And that's basically my personality, pipes!!
When I put up my name and a picture of myself, that's basically advertising myself on the Internet.
I don't consider this the internet. At all. It isn't open to anyone. Less likely for creeps or criminals. I disagree. And well, I sorta like that personality. Some times it can be a little much, like in Rob's case. Its just annoying to me....
....and intimidating. You on the other hand, I don't get that vibe from just by typing with you. Maybe if we talked in person, but I doubt it. And even if I did. I probably wouldn't mind too much.
Idk, I like his arguments on SoH. Also, there's a website. Anyone can get onto this. Which is exactly why I'm so !!! about privacy.
Haha if we talked in person you'd be like geez this girl is psycho
Ahh touché, I forgot about the website. Now you have a point. But still, it's less likely here. People don't know about SOH and won't search, or find your profile. And nah, you don't seem too crazy from what I can tell. I might be wrong. Lol.
I still probably wouldnt mind. I can get psyco like that too if I really into a conversation or just having a good time.
Haha :) just you wait. You'll probably be like "what a spaz."
Nah, it'd probably grow on me over time more likely. Nah, that's a little rude. A personality can't be changed, you just gotta roll with it, and your volatile personality I could most likely roll with. You'd just have to deal with my....
...."ugh you imbeciles, just leave me be", mellow personality. At times.
Haha you and your "leave me alone I need some me-time you people annoy me"? I can totally see that happening. Based off of how angrily reluctant you were to even go to your family reunion.
Ah you remember that. That was mainly, I have a bad attitude leading up to events but don't mind them after the fact. Gotta have my me time. Lol.
Exactly. You're all grumbly before and then you're like eh that wasn't that bad but I won't admit it.
I swear, you and my sister would be best friends.
Nah, ill admit it. Reluctantly but I will. It might just be the age too.
Could be. You're all sassy.
I actually haven't been sassy recently. I can't remember a time where you called me out on being I'm. Frankly I'm proud of myself. :). And we are not all sassy! Hell, you're what, 4,5 years older? You're no better than us. You can be very sassy too.
I was actually thinking about that last week. You've been very sympathetic lately, not sassy at all. Very mature, actually. Nicely done, pipes.
And boy, please. I can be soooo sassy. And I have no shame in admitting it.
Thank you! I'm flattered. (blush emoji). Yes you may, but I really can't see it much on SOH. Which is good.
So you were thinking about it last week? Anything in particular gave you the thought?
When I was talking about going home and you sounded (as far as typed words can sound like anything) genuinely happy for me. I thought that was really sweet.
And you are up so late for a Sunday night.
Thank you. That means a lot. And ya, I was and am, genuinely happy for you. Of course I would be. Speaking of that, I hope you're having a nice time, which of course you are.
Ya I'm up late but it's a long weekend. You're actually up really late too. Using SOH in bed I bet. A question for ya, does your family have any idea about SOH?
Yes I'm having a great time!! And I totally forgot it's a long weekend for you. We never had Columbus Day off. And they don't. Well, I showed it to them way back before 2.0, but only my friends know my username. They think I'm on SoH too michA
*too much. They think I take it too seriously. And I'm actually using SoH lying upside down on the floor of my room haha I keep dropping my phone on my face.
Don't hurt yourself now. Use a bed or a couch jeez. Nah you don't use it too much. It's addicting. Especially if you talk to someone, it basically turns into texting without the price. Lol.
Haha in a way. But I can iMessage people without the price too. Anyway, I know you don't think I use it too much, but I definitely used to. Last school year it was a really bad time waster. I just saw one of my best friends today and she was like
"Ugh you still use SoH? I thought you'd be over that by now."
Lol! I'm surprised that actually came up in conversation. Wouldn't think it would. It actually seems to me like you use it now more than you've ever used it.
I have so much time on my hands now. And SoH is a huge constant in my life at the moment. It's kid of comforting in a weird, weird way.
There I go psychoanalyzing myself again...
And we talk about SoH all the time. I always bring it up, but still.
There's nothing wrong with phycoanylysing (butchered spelling) yourself. It's actually good in my opinion. An app is a huge constant in your life? Really? I didn't mean it means so much to ya. And I don't see how it's comforting but to each their own
Bringing up SOH in a conversation doesn't seem very fluid in a conversation. God damn it rlands, making me all confused, and concerned with your SOH habits/ uses. Care elaborating on any of those?
It doesn't even mean that much to me. But it's just familiar at a time when not much else is. Do you know what I'm saying?
What do you mean concerned with my SoH habits or usage? Haha I have no idea what you're asking. My friends are on SoH too, so we sometimes talk about it. And interesting polls. And interesting users. And interesting comments.
Ya. I know what you're saying. :). But You can always elaborate more though.
I think I underestimate the usage of SOH by your friends. There's my problem.
And the fact that it takes up my time is helpful. I would get so bored without SoH.
And whoa. You never use smiley faces.
They don't use it much anymore. But last school year and at the beginning of the summer they did. They used to post questions on my account sometimes and stuff like that. Whenever I sound really drunk, don't worry it's just my friends.
SAME!!!! SOH is such a time killer. I would literally never touch my iPad without it. No, not often, but occasionally, when I want to. I wonder if these friends of yours follow me, and read our conversations. Hmmm.....
Lol, you never sounded really drunk. And nice friends ya got there! ;D
Hahaha I give them permission most times! It's not like they hijack my phone. Although that has happened. I know one of my friends follows you. Not sure about the rest. If they did read our conversations they'd be like "rlands stop giving away so
"much information about yourself to random Internet strangers!!"
Which is probably good advice...
Oh come on now. I think I'm past the point of random Internet stranger. While technically I still am. But that's besides the point. But hey, you disagreed with their advice.
I know. You have to understand that the point I'm at now is wayyy outside of my comfort zone. Like, providing actual info. And I freaked myself out a little a couple days ago when I actually considered putting up a prof pic. Shot that down though.
Jeez that wouldve even given me a heart attack! I'm curious to see what you look like, but considering you're already wayy out of your comfort zone already, I don't want you to do anything with your info that you dont want to do...
If you're way out of your comfort zone, I'm surprised you even shared as much as you have so far. But I thank you for your trust. :). (see correct use of smiley face).
I really appreciate that. I honestly look pretty normal. No crazy forehead tattoos or anything haha
Haha. From what I gathered, you don't seem like the forehead tatoo type. Maybe tramp stamp..? JK!!!! JK JK JK.
So are you still laying on the floor?! It's been a couple hours now.
Haha you better be JK!!! pipes.
I'm a tattoo free kind of girl. Like I've said a ton of times, I don't do permanent cosmetic changes. No plastic surgery, I wouldn't (but this could change) dye my hair, no tattoos (obviously)...
No haha now I'm standing up leaning on the wall next to my charger. I'm trying to SoH, paint my toes, text my friend, and work on a paper. Hahahaha jk I don't do actual work. Scratch the paper part.
That's the best way to go. Dying hair might actually make you look better as long as its not lava red or something stupid. And of course I'm kidding!
Well I haven't actually started painting my toes yet. That'd be difficult to do standing up.
I'm liking your work ethic! So your charger doesn't reach your bed? For Christ sake lay on something soft or plushy!
It might make some people look better, but I love my hair. It's dirty blonde with light blonde streaks. It used to be way lighter though, so lightening it would be the only reason I'd consider dyeing it.
It does reach my bed, but that's on the other side of the room and I'm lazy haha
And my carpet is very soft and plushy, thank you very much.
You're too lazy to walk across your room? You now confirm my zero faith in humanity. Your carpet may be soft and plushy (oh how I envy you) but laying in a bed is softer and plushyer. So are you going for the sparkle look on the nails, or the.....
....neon yellow saying, look at me, I'm not a prostitute! I forget which is in style this season.... Uh oh, sassy pipes is back. See, when I get in these types of moods he comes out. "crawl back into the dark hole you came from".
Hahaha :) first of all, I knew there was a reason I didn't plug it into my bed outlet. My laptop was plugged into that outlet. And I just painted them mint green, hate it, so I'm changing it, likely to pink glitter.
Ah, best of both worlds. Prostitute, and glitter, smart choice.
And we have officially been talking for 3 hours straight. A new record, even for us and our history of long conversations. Can I sue you for sleep deprivation?
Shut up, pipes.
Actually, I am not even a little bit tired. It's weird, but I like it.
You say that in a nice ways presume?
*you say that in a nice way I presume.
Maybe you're not tired, but I am. HAPPY MONDAY!!! Anyway, my toes can stay mint for tonight, I'll redo them in the morning.
You're going to bed I presume? Jeez what a wimp. ;)
Oh 94 comments, all but 7 are irrelevant. High five. Remember when I used to freak about long convos? Ya I really don't give a shit anymore.
Eventually. I borrowed my sister's eyeliner today and it won't come off. Help meeeee!!
Haha yeah you were like STOP HIJACKING MY POLLS and I was like whoa dude I like tangents.
Now how the fuck am I supposed to know? Ask one of your lady friends who are probably still up. Or just keep the eyeliner on. I've never been a bug fame if eyeliner tbh.
"bug fame if" good lord.
Well that's great because at the moment I'm not a fan of eyeliner AT ALL!
Hey, blame your sister for terrible eye liner choice.
I think it's really old. And I think I gave it to her like last year.
Liquid...that stuff is trash.
Anyway, got it off. Going to bed soon. Night.
Good to know. Night.
You never had Columbus day off!? What kind of childhood is that?
A sad, sad existence. And I just woke up from a dream where Hillary Clinton was tutoring me on my math homework...
Lol it's that paper you didn't do last night. It's haunting your dreams.
Haha oh my gosh you're right! Better get on that...
Literally, that's probably it.
But it was math! Not a paper. Anyway, I think you're right in that I'm thinking way too much about school.
Nah, you're at a point where it needs to be really important. You're just being a good student. Me on the other hand can think less about it. You're away from home, it's a lot of work, it's a new experience. You're acting normal. :)
It's not even that much harder than high school though! I have plenty of time when I get back to deal with it. Anyway...how's your day off going?
It's not much harder? I doubt that. The days fine, it's literally 11:30. The time for "how is your day" small talk is at 1:00 at night. ;D. I'm just messing with ya. It's fine. Both the patriots and redsox had miraculous wins yesterday. How was OA?
I told you I went to a spectacular high school. College apps were harder than actual college. Actually. Anyway, on air was good. More interesting than others because of all the young people. And then zod and rob were just like hey we're young too...
Listgarten and puppy is a cute couple, ehh. I wouldn't expect her to be a conservative. Meh.
Dude she's libertarian, get it right! Haha jk
But you wouldn't expect her to be?
Young asian girl kinda goes against old white man. But now I'm just racist. And pipes is not a racist!! I think you need more friends to talk to on SOH.
Haha ok pipes. I'll get on that.
Mr.L would love to talk to you. ;D
I feel like he's probably sick of me by now. I try and be annoying sometimes :)
Why would he be sick of you? You dont seem annoying towards him. Or at any time for that matter. To me at least. Others may find your personality annoying.
Eh maybe. I can get annoying sometimes.
Maybe, but it doesn't affect me.
Good. At least I have some Internet friends :)
Oh oh must have others on SOH.
Well yeah. So do you.
Meh, not really. More like friendly acquaintances, not actual friends.
Well that's like everyone on SoH
Not necessarily. SOH has made a lot of people become pretty close friends.
Maybe. I'm just not sure you can really call yourself good friends with someone you've never met.
Touché. So you must be coming back today. That's sucks. :(
That's good news!
Do you happen to know the next time you'll visit?
Thanksgiving. But it's just as short a visit :(
Aww, that stinks. Buts it's not too far away really if you think about it.
A month and a half? Not too bad.
They're also relatively close too. Have you finished that paper?
No. I'm not gonna work on it until I get back. It's much too interesting around here for me to worry about that. And I barely have any time anyway.
Interesting? It's just saying hi to family and friends, after a day or two it gets old. ;D
Not for me :) and I still have a couple friends to see tomorrow that I haven't visited yet. Pipes I know a lot of people...it never gets boring haha
Haha. That can be both a blessing and a curse. I hope you didn't miss anyone in the couple days. Haha.
I am missing a bunch of people :/ oh well. I got to see the majority of my super super close friends and most of my family.
Damn, that's a lot of friends. And I'm impressed, I just realized you haven't wrote a text to your friends on SOH in a while. Way to go!
No pipes I did it tonight for the first time in weeks! It was on one of A-Fly's polls...on a thread that notified probably 6 or 7 people :/
Ha! They were like, wtf?
What's this guy's username?
They were like lolololol you know you're addicted to SoH when this happens lol
It's actually SpeakerAFly
Well they're right. Lol.
No!! I had to hear this from my friends today too...I need to just not talk about SoH at all.
Ya, I still don't know how it would come in conversation. You haven't seen them in a while, and you talk about SOH? Jeez you can't find better things to talk about? And I thought we were scraping the bottom of the barrel for small talk! ;D damn!
So who exactly is this "WD" you spoke of? (oooooo mysterious)
Pipes, it's not like we spent the entire time talking about SoH haha I had 8 hours with them today, we talked about SoH for a grand total of 20 seconds
None of your business ;)
Heh heh heh, oh I got my theories. And they just got reinforced with your statement.
Ok, it's honestly not what you're thinking. Really. I swear.
And how exactly do you know what I'm thinking?
Umm duh. Several reasons. 1) you're transparent 2) I can read minds 3) I know you too well
Ya this was a bit blatantly obvious. But I think I can use those same points on you as well.
Haha I didn't even realized I put a wink there. Make that a smiley face and my argument might be a little more sound. I swear.
Oh I believe you. I was more joking on my end myself. You made it sound like a 50 shades type of deal. Which I played along with. Speaking of which. I pray to god (no one. you never explained your miraculous realization btw) you've not read that book
You also made a comment on one of inge's love polls. I'm shocked.
I have not read that book and have absolutely no desire to.
And why are you shocked? It isn't sohah or anything...
No, but I compare the two to be similar.
Ok, most of the comment was about my BFF anyway. Which is what the question in part was asking. Geez do you think I'm an unemotional person or something? Haha ok I kind of am...
Haha. Key word "most". Boy do I love analyzing comments. I'm not too shabby at it either. And yes, you are. But I think I can be too at times, when I'm not in my mood swings of course.
Haha you're the moodiest person I know! And most is good enough for me haha
Oh come on now, I'm not moody. Am I?
Ahahahaha you have got to be joking.
I'm serious. I don't think I'm moody. Well idk.
:) you kind of are. In a funny way though. Or maybe you just come across that way over the Internet. And yes, this is the Internet.
I type over the "Internet" exactly as I would if I were speaking to you in person. The moodyness is probably me joking around. :P (ugh, oh god what did I just type? I feel a mix of twerking, duck faces, and complaining about my problems on FB)
Seriously though. I hate our generation. Imbeciles, all of them!
Hahaha I know! It's exactly what you might say in person (although, I don't buy that considering you think you're too shy for sohoa), but it's not interpreted the same. No facial expressions or tone of voice over typing.
Hey!! I'm not an imbecile and neither are you. Nor are any (ok, not most at least) of my friends and probably same with your friends. It'll get better, trust me.
You don't buy what? And oh I'm saying this all in a a tone of voice. But we can only infer each others. I swear to god, the day I go on SOHOA, is the day you go on as well.
None of my friends are like that, because I make sure of it. And I haven't exactly seen your Facebook, twitter, instagram , zaz, zing, or whatever the fuck theyre using now. oh ya, vine. Now what the fuck on gods green earth is that?! Good lord!
You know that's like never going to happen. Don't pull yourself into this pit of anonymous despair with me. Note: this is solely a metaphor. It is actually not total despair in this neck of the woods.
You seriously should go on. You'd do great.
Can ya get my facial expression and tone vibe? It's certainly there.
You're speaking so religiously, pipes ;)
And my fb is pretty empty. I really don't put my own pics up, I just get tagged in a ton. And my Instagram doesn't have any actual pics of me. My vine though...
Haha I don't even have a vine
What do you mean by pit of anonymous disappear? And by, this neck of the woods?I use the religious terms for emphasis. Like a swear. I give absolute 0 fucks about the food you just ate, that you post on instagram.
Yeah, I think I can get your facial expressions and tone more often than not. But what do I know, I could be totally off considering I've never even met you.
And I'm going to bed. You should too!! There's this thing called a school night...
I only have one Instagram photo of food!!!
And basically just because I've condemned myself to anonymity doesn't mean everyone should. It's just how I like to be. Anyway, night.
School? Bed? What are these things you speak of? I'm seriously not tired at all. But if you are, sure, go to sleep. Night.
Just a quick question. If SOH didn't have a website, so it wasn't out there for the world to see, and literally only your followers could see your face, and know your personal info (if you shared it) etc. would you be less conservitive?
If there was a way for me to show what I look like without anyone at all being able to duplicate the picture in some form or another, and I could guarantee none of my followers knew me personally, I would.
Also: look at this great video pipes!! It's your favorite kind, exposing republican hypocrisy.
Oh rlands. You know just what makes me happy. Thank you. :) I'm so sorry to hear about your sunburn. :( I'm surprised though, I know lots of makeup had some protection in it. I wouldn't think youd get burned. But not to worry, winter's comin.
It's not sunburn, I'm just getting a lot of freckles like on my arms and stuff. And I generally don't wear that type of makeup; the less stuff I have on my face, the better.
Freckles? Interesting. So you don't use makeup?
And yes thank goodness winter's coming! It's like 75 here :/
Well I wear makeup, but 1) not on my arms and 2) I don't usually use foundation because it feels gross on your face.
Ya, when you get back to mass it'll be much more nippy.
Ya, I have no idea what that is. I've heard of it, but don't know it. So, as I would do in person, nod and move on to the next comment. Lol.
Foundation is what you put on your face that matches your skin color and basically evens out your skin tones if you have dark under eyes or redness anywhere. I know people who wear it everyday, I don't even own any haha
Ok, I own some, but it's old.
Fascinating stuff. Really. ;) I wouldn't use that old foundation. Remember what happened with the old mascara. Why are we talking about makeup? And why do I actually care?
It was eyeliner, it eventually came off mostly, and you keep asking about it! I'd encourage you to explore new avenues such as that of makeup. Who knows, you might be the next Bobbi ;)
Uhhh, I'm gonna have to pass. Sorry, I bet you'd love to talk more about makeup. Who is this Bobbi?
Nah it's not really that interesting to talk about actually. And Bobbi Brown. You say you know history, but that's apparently not all arenas of historical information...
Oh come on. I don't know everything. Especially something stupid which I assume that is.
Haha it's not stupid! Ok, maybe to some people...my BFF loves her. Anyway...
So who is she?
She's a makeup artist. Kind of influential. She does a bunch of celebrities, writes books, stuff like that.
Ugh yourself :P
Ugh yourself! :P
Ugh I don't even know how to deal with you, pipes.
Ah so you kick me to the curb I see. Not even giving our relationship a chance. :(
Pipes, I'm sorry. Hopefully we can reconfigure our friendship and make it work this time.
How exactly are we going to reconfigure this? And we've tried this before, what, 3 times now?
I don't know. But I do know it'll be a long path to total recovery. It's gonna take dedication to the cause and willingness to cooperate (much unlike congress at the moment). Do you accept the challenge?
I do. And do you, rlands, accept this undertaking?
This is a bit too formal, so I'm just going to go with: sure, yo. Just making sure I'm not agreeing to anything I don't know I'm agreeing to.
I don't know what I'm agreeing to either. But hey, you made the contract. I hope you were getting the joke.
Yes, I was! Which is why I went with "sure, yo." Anyway...yay I think we can be friends again.
Ugh, we were and are now friends? How is that so? I thought I was random Internet dude. ;D. And Many of the jokes I make are inspired, or based off of your comments, which already included the joke. So blame yourself honey.
"Honey"? Sounds rather condescending. And you are some random Internet dude. Just as far as random Internet dudes go, you're alright.
I'm not trying to be condescending. I just wanted an adjective. I'll never call you that again. Just "alright"? I thought we were rebuilding a relationship here.
I TOLD YOU REBUILDING TAKES TIME GEEZ
^^^ that's me trying to be an emotional person. I think it's working.
And I used to call people "honey" all the time and I got so much flak for it. People were like @:&;/@;!/@,!93.
There's a difference between emotion, and one of my all caps rants. But at least you're trying. I really don't see how you're unemotional though. I see plenty of emotions. I can understand why people wouldn't like it. And apparently you dont like it
Haha no, I was kind of making fun of your all caps rants ;) and I'm also making fun of you making fun of me for answering Inge's poll. I know I'm not actually emotionless!
Through text, you seem to have emotions. But I might just be making them up with my own array of emotions. Though in person, you might just be a rock with hands. I'll never know.
Yep, that's me. A rock. With hands. Actually I only have my left hand.
What happened to the right hand? And yep, that's pretty much how I envision you.
Great. I'm glad I make that type of impression. From a 14 year old boy to a rock. At least it's a step in the right direction...
How is that actually a step in any direction for that matter. Damn, when was that? In march? it's so hard to envision SOH down the road. Like, 3, 4,10 years from now.
I was being facetious. Anyway, yeah, that's weird. I wonder if it'll still be around in 5 or 10 years. Aww you'll be out of college! They grow up so fast...
And I'm going to sleep. This poll will probably close by the morning. So night!!
Yep it probably will. And not a bad streak of like 3 consecutive nights of chatting in this poll. Have a good night. :)
I'm only 4 years younger than you. It's not that big of a gap. Remember that. I'm not a little youngster.
And hell, I act like your age, and above.
A pop of red is generally pretty nice.
I like em to stay green all year.
I like a good mix.
I prefer them to change at all which they don't really do here. I miss that from my younger years in Missouri and Oklahoma.
Red leaves are my favorite. Though the leaf peeping season is quickly passing.
Love red leaves. They are somewhat rare where I live, so seeing some is really special.
