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

2. Do you wear perfume? Favorite?

3. Bagels-cream cheese or butter?

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.

So?  Big deal.  She didn't have an interest in seeing LI.  I'm sure she is interested in places or things that you aren't.  You want to coinvice her she should have been interested? Well, if that's all you have to do today, ok.

<<How many times have you visited NY?>>

A few, how many times have you visited my area to confirm that the bagels are not the same quality?  Oh and bords area and everyone else?  Ah huh...that's what I thought.  Open the mind, allow for the possibility....

Enough to have your fill of bagels, pizza, chinese food and black and white cookies? lol. 
I was actually asking Bord who I was having a discussion with earlier Laughing

I prefer baseball ... especially when watching World Series champs with a great friend and a great bartender.</p>[/quote]

I also prefer baseball.    But have also seen hockey and football on the professional level.

"I guess there was no watching of sports in your home when you grew up either?" ------------ No, never. I had one school friend whose father liked and watched soccer, which was quite strange to me. He was the first person like that whom I had met

Oh ok. I can see your lack of interest in sports then if you had no involvement in some sort of way when you were younger.

"Not even the food? lol." ---------- The food is gross. I have no desire whatsoever to know anything about games. 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.

I guess there was no watching of sports in your home when you grew up either? lol
