1. Are you wearing purple for North America Lupus Awareness Day today?

2. Do you wear perfume? Favorite?

3. Bagels-cream cheese or butter?

I like them as well, baseball is my favorite but I enjoy most sports.  But I totally understand that others don't like sports, I'm open to differences...well except, the American league, it's not real baseball and you can't convince me otherwise.  ;)

Well your day is almost over, mine is just starting.  And I unfortunately have something worse than rain going on.  IT'S FREAKIN' SNOWING & HAS BEEN ALL NIGHT AND IT'S ACTUALLY STICKING, WE HAVE A COUPLE INCHES OF ACCUMULATION.   And yes this is usually when we plant our flowers, 2nd to 3rd week in May.  It's so depressing, I've lived here over 25 years now & this is not normal & it is disgusting.

Sorry, had to say that.  On a good note, my wordly aunt is in town and coming to stay at my house for the next 2 days.  She is my favorite favorite aunt--we've seen her a few times over the last week for family events, but is going to stay here for the rest of this vist.  And I told her yesterday she is my favorite aunt, EVAH!

Major league stadiums the food is often overpriced and blech, now minor league and spring training...not to bad, at least in my experiences.

ITA with you. We have only been to 3 minor league stadiums (in 2 different states, one that does spring training) but the food is much cheaper.

That is kind of why I have no desire to watch them either. I simply can't bring myself to care which group of large men manage to hit/kick/catch the ball more times than the other group of large men.</span></p><p><strong><span style="font-size:13px">I guess there was no watching of sports in your home when you grew up either? lol</span></strong></p>

People live different lives, I'm not so sure why that is laugh out loud funny or why one can't understand the simple notion that someone doesn't like or watch sports.

"That's nice. I have been to NJ plenty of times. Just there for a Giants game a few months ago." --------- Again, good for you. I did go to one baseball game in NY, just because I ought to see it, I thought. Never again. I detest sports at least as much as I detest driving in cars, except the sports are more boring (nothing to look at).

See...the problem was you saw one in NY and not baseball heaven.  :)

That's a good point, I'm not fond of suburbs or subdivisions either as they all tend to be the same, same houses and etc.  When we went on a cruise years ago, that was our main complaint, the limited time in a place and feeling more like a vistor than trying to find things off the beaten path.  I've found that I really enjoy the road less traveled so to speak.  I want to do a cruise in Alaska because it's my understanding that the view of the glaciers and coast are beautiful, but I also want to spend time on land exploring the cities.

You need to find a local then and have them take you around. Not only will you see the things that everyone else sees on excursions and by themselves, they will show you around places that the average excursion will not. Or find a cruise to someplace that doesn't just stay a few hours. Bermuda is like that. You have 2 days on land and can come and go as you please or you can stay overnight in a hotel, cottage, etc. if you don't want to go back to the ship.

And now you want to convince her she would be interested in sports, if she just new how they worked?  And that she'd love the food, if she went & basically doesn't know what she's missing out on.  Ok, Roll, you understand that?  Yes, ok you might want to move on Spring.  Roll understands the differences are beautful thing.  AKA Different strokes for different folks.
