I don't have a favorite episode or moment but my favorite season was probably #2.  One of my least favorite moments was when Andrea died.  I hated the way they made her fall for the Governor.  But she was always one of my favorite characters.  My current favorite is Daryl.

Tell me about it. There was a time in my life when I didn't have a cat  :\'( :\'( (was living with my mother & step-father in an apartment). When I was finally on my own and got married at a SUPER young age (19), I told my husband that I wanted a cat. He looked at me and said, "A cat?" I thought he was going to ask me what a cat was. lol. Then one led to 2 which led to 3 and finally 4. Then my marriage ended and I got custody of all 4 cats and suddenly I became the "Crazy Cat Lady." lol. Now, we have 2 and I convinced my wonderful husband to get a 3rd one. I am waiting for that special one to come along before adopting one-even though just about ALL of them would be that special one.

My favorite TV show is The Walking Dead because I am a fan of zombie stuff.  Plus I love how it is a good mix of horror and drama.  It shows great character relationships that we don't normally see in the zombie or even other apocalyptic films. 

My least favorite music is most of the stuff on the radio today, of most genres.  I'm a huge fan of 90's and 80's (especially 90's) music.  It was so much better than present music.  I've always favored Rock music.  Different kinds of rock.  Another genre I have always enjoyed is Electronica/Dance, especially the House music of the 90's.  My most favorite music is Alternative-Metal. 

Ripley (Ellen Ripley) is the lead character of the Alien films.  She's a bad ass and I would love to be just like her! Since it's one of my favorite franchises and she is one of my favorite characters, also because I didn't know what else to call myself, I chose that name. 

I'm not related to the Ripley guy.  :D

I can break a record for how many times I stub my toe or hit my arm on something in one day.  ;D

Alligator.  It was nasty! 

What are some of your favorite cuisines?
I love pasta!  Alfredo with no meat is the best sauce.  Pizza.  Tacos with mild seasoning (I'm not a spicy food fan).  I like the TexMex ones.  I have tried authentic and I didn't like it.  Chili cheese burritos are good too.  I love homemade chicken and noodles.  My mom makes the noodles from scratch and it's amazing!  Roast with boiled potatoes, crockpot is the best way.  Bacon cheeseburgers and French fries with seasoning. 

What food have you tried that u were surprised you liked it?
I can't think of anything off hand because I'm weary of trying new foods.  :P

This would be a good option but before I never thought about it much.

Cox Communications.  They're expensive!  We have thought about trying a different company but it usually costs to transfer plus we would have to buy the boxes.  Maybe in the future though.  They do have DVRs but we just had to cut our bill down so I know it would bring it back up again, for buying the dvr at least.  But do you have to pay monthly to use it?

Ah; thanks for the update. :) Sorry to hear about losing your job, that must be frustrating. My dad was abruptly laid off from his job a few months ago, along with the rest of his staff, and that was a huge disappointment because he'd been working for the same company for 23 years, and he really enjoyed the work he was doing.

We've missed you here too.

Subject: Re: Ripley

Sorry about your dad being laid off, that's a long time to work at a place. I was at mine for 8 years. But it contributed to anxiey I've had plus they didn't care about my personal problems. So I look at this as a fresh start. I don't have any income yet I'm trying to move soon. So it has been stressful in addition to other things. But I'm being possitive about it. I have really missed this place and all of you. Its nice to have great people to talk to!

Subject: Re: Ripley

Written By: nally on 02/28/15 at 5:20 pm

That's good. Similarly, my dad is trying to deal with his situation positively as well. For example, he is grateful to not have to commute long hours on the train each day (it was fine at first, since he didn't have to sit in traffic), but during the last year or two, it was starting to get very stressful, due to many delays occurring. He is especially grateful that he didn't have to be on the train this past Tuesday, as there was an early-morning crash on the tracks just a few short miles away from where we live. (No one was killed, thank goodness, but about half the people on that train got injured...and my dad might have been among those people if he were still commuting to downtown L.A. every day.)

I've always enjoyed song and story writing. Before I did it as a hobby but it would be nice to make something happen with it.

I've been having a lot of things going on with my family. And I lost my job cause I was having problems. I've really been re-evaluating my life too. But I have missed this place a lot.

Are things better now?

Are things better now?

Yes and no.  Some things are better.  I do have a job at least its not much better than the last but at least I get a long with my co-workers better and the place is a bit better company.  But its still retail.  I tried and tried to find other work before settling.  I was hoping to get a job at this hotel.  But hopefully something better comes up soon.  I'm part time and have mixed feelings about it.  I need more hours for sure as I'm far behind.  But I also am relieved when I have short hours.  As far as my family goes.  I'm also a caregiver to my SO.  I won't get into details but its a full time job.  Plus now my grandfather is developing alzheimers.  So my mom has to take care of my grandmother who has some trouble getting around but she is mostly lonely as my grandfather is now in a nursing home.  More things stress me out then this stuff but that's just part of it so you all know what's going on. 

I apologize that I have not been on.  I really do enjoy this place and to me its like an extended family.  We all are there for eachother.  I genuinely care for the well being of everyone here.  I have just had so much going on that I rarely have time to sleep even.  Plus I have back pains that are terrible.  And I can't always concentrate.  Eventually it will get better.  But I will try to get on here some.  I would like to every day but I can't guarantee it will be possible.  I do hope everyone here is doing alright.  I'm going to be reading through your latest posts today to try and catch up with what's been going on.

As far as me and working, I have no Idea what I want to do.  Even if it's just volanter work.  Have I ever told anyone here that I had a medaloblastona brain tumor when I was 7?  My brain these days just seems to blank out a lot and things take me at least an hour or longer to do.  Try not to feel too sad about me though because I can still write parody's and do things I love doing.

If writing is what makes you happy keep doing it!  ;) I'm a writer myself.  I have tried in the past to make a career out of it.  I had given up but I've since learned not to give up on something you love.  Who knows, maybe one day I will make something of it and be a success.

I'm not sure about that one though I usually throw it out after two days just to be safe. But for the most part I make sweets/desserts. So I'm not the best person to ask. 😛

Ah yes, the days of TVs of that nature. I also have one that isn't flat screen; it's bulky and has a smaller picture screen (NOT of the HD aspect ratio).

Hmm I'm not sure. All I remember is that it looked like the one in the pic but we had a remote. But since my memory is foggy, maybe it didn't have knobs lol I do remember a lot of things from childhood, but some details I'm not sure on.

I really like early spring. With warm showers. Sitting on the porch watching it, smelling it. And all the flowers. I use to always prefer fall/autumn with the chill in the air, the leaves and Halloween. I always will but now I favor spring the same.
