I had a crush on Frenchy when I was little.

She was always my favorite character in Grease! I think I dyed my hair pink as an adult because I was influenced by her. :heart:

I had a crush on Sandy and Marty too. :D I spent a lot of time watching the movie and listening to the album over and over. I also had a thing for Kristy McNichol in The Pirate Movie.

I pronounce the 'h' in words like 'white' and 'when'.


A buddy of mine used to actually pronounce the word "women" the way it's spelled.

I would do a double take when he would say "woe - men" when I expected him to say "wimmen" (the way most folks say it) because it wasn't obvious whether he was saying the singular, or the plural, version of "woman" (the way it WOULD be obvious if it had said the way most folks say it).

One cab driver in NYC who was interviewed as a witness to something on the TV news also said the word "women" the way my buddy says it. The two of them are probably the ONLY two individuals in the entire English speaking world who actually say the word the way it's spelled. Never heard anyone from the USA, Canada, the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Caribbean, nor even anyone from a non English speaking country who spoke English as a second language say the word that way!

At my current age posting this message I have roughly slept 14 years of my total life span thus far.

I’m very vain and obsessed with putting on makeup and wearing put together outfits.

I have a lump at the base of my neck on the right side that my doctor said is a cluster of swollen lymph nodes. I had several tests to make sure it wasn’t lymphoma or anything, and it appears to just be something my body did just because it could. It turned up I think at least two years ago and has stayed the same ever since.

When you try to assume, it makes an a** out of u and me.

I have increasing memory issues, and a tendency to forget that I forget everything. Please don't take it personally if I forget something, it probably says absolutely nothing about how important the thing is/isn’t to me.

As a general rule, I do not discuss politics and avoid political debates. Anyone who tries to talk politics with me will most likely not get any reply about it, except perhaps an emphasis of the above. Political discussion can get very heated very quickly, and I know I don’t handle that well.

It seems I have two main speaking patterns:

One that concentrates in words and meaning, primarily 'patterns' English, and non-social contexts.
It's where I'd get English pronunciations right, able to control my speech patterns and accents with.
With enough practice, I might able to voice act with this.
Whenever I'm using this 'mode' of language, the tension is at the back of my head.

The other one focuses on speaking, and is dominated by my native language and thinking -- which happened to be socially favored.
With this, I'd end up speaking accented English and able to speak in native on semi-auto.
The accent mixed in English is... No different from those who speaks the same native language as I do. But still out of place from where I grew up, with poor voice modulation and even poorer repetition of words -- not recommended for singing.
Whenever this mode of language 'happens', the tension is somewhere at the front of my head.


I wonder if it's the same with others, or if they can notice it and able to tell the difference...

But from what I can notice was that people's speech don't always reflect their singing.

I strongly believe in labels.

When I go to bed, I have to find just the right position for my feet (and it isn’t the same position every night), or either I stim with my feet and the motion keeps me up, or it takes enough mental effort to not stim that I can’t sleep.
