type in something you have or have not done;

" I've never been water skiing"

Then type;
But the person below me has ________
( hikied the himalayas or grows giant sunflowers or whatever you like)

The next person then says yes I have or no I haven't but the person below me ......

(you can shorten it to TPBM if you like, so I'll begin;

I've never been to Alaska but the person below me has a water garden

Jul 24, 2013, 10:16pm Top

Alas, I do not have a water garden, but I do have a potted garden.  I should go water that, now.

I've never gone sky-diving, but TPBM is a thrill-seeker.

Jul 24, 2013, 10:57pm Top

Um...does juggling knives and torches count?

I've never been stranded on a deserted island, but the person below me has cracked open a coconut.

Jul 25, 2013, 7:33am Top

I've never cracked open a coconut but TPBM has more than one pet

Jul 25, 2013, 2:19pm Top

Only if the dust bunnies count!

I can't spend all day in the sun without burning, but TPBM knows how to sail a boat.

Jul 26, 2013, 7:13pm Top

No, but I can paddle a canoe!

TPBM cans their own fruits and/or veggies

Jul 31, 2013, 11:02am Top

No, but I wish I knew how.

TPBM is currently (re)reading a Harry Potter book.

Aug 4, 2013, 8:45pm Top

I'm not currently rereading a Harry Potter book, but TPBM has hiked in the Himalayas.

Aug 5, 2013, 7:11pm Top

Luna! We have missed you in the Who am I thread! We thought you were eaten by Smaug!

No Never hiked the Himalayas, going upstairs is enough for me.
TPBM has taken fencing lessons

Aug 6, 2013, 6:35am Top

Does stage combat count? I used a broadsword.

TPBM has been president.

Aug 7, 2013, 6:13pm Top

I was once president of my storytelling guild. I am currently the president of my church's United Methodist Women, but would gladly give it up if someone else wanted it. That's pretty much it...I really don't like being in charge of stuff.

Sep 22, 2013, 2:44pm Top

I was president of my youth group.

TPBM has more than one cell phone

Sep 22, 2013, 6:11pm Top

I do actually, a virgin mobile and a Iphone 4, the virgin needs some minutes bought so I'll do that soon
TPBM has the new Iphone 5

Sep 23, 2013, 4:54pm Top

nope, a desktop is sufficient; and it is awfully hard to lose/misplace it.

// there is a LONG RUNNING TPBM game at:
http://www.librarything.com/topic/158713 //

TPBM waterskis

Edited: Sep 23, 2013, 5:14pm Top

I don't, nor ever have.

TPBM also plays TPBM at the other long running game (which is now on its ... 79th? incarnation) (my mistake - 80th!)

Sep 24, 2013, 1:19am Top

I haven't posted in that group yet, but I'm also just returning from an almost two-year-long self-imposed hiatus from the internet. I oughtta be asleep but insomnia has kicked in again tonight.

TPBM is, like me, an insomniac.

Sep 24, 2013, 1:19pm Top

Fortunately, no, although I have had two episodes of insomnia since April - not pleasant.

TPBM gets (overly) excited about a new pair of socks!

Sep 24, 2013, 2:02pm Top

How can one get excited about something as mundane as socks? It usually means that one must replace* the ones that are worn out (*ah, for a girlfriend who practices the lost art of darning socks!).

TPBM likes durability in their purchases.

Sep 28, 2013, 2:31pm Top

To a point, but shopping for new stuff is fun!

TPBM enjoys walks in the woods

Sep 28, 2013, 5:38pm Top

18: Why don't you learn how to mend your own socks?

19: Not unless I have mosquito repellant. Those little six-legged vampires are *awful* here.

TPBM prefers walks on the beach.

Sep 28, 2013, 8:29pm Top

#18: I was replacing my favorite pair, which were a fun multi-color stripped pair, that had finally worn out after 7 years. So, although socks are generally mundane, these weren't, and my new stripped pair aren't either!

No, while I do enjoy beach walks, I much prefer the shade of the woods - I'm too fair-skinned for much beach time!

TPBM prefers hot tea to hot chocolate.

Oct 3, 2013, 11:30am Top

I can do either, with a slight edge on tea....

TPBM can't live without caffeine

Oct 3, 2013, 12:10pm Top

I have to, it's embargoed! Sad really, as I just love the smell of fresh roast coffee.

TPBM rebels at putting sugar in coffee.

Oct 3, 2013, 4:10pm Top

I take my coffee black. And cold-brewed. Caffeine rules.

TPBM has started thinking about Halloween costumes.

Edited: Oct 3, 2013, 5:21pm Top

Yes, namely that I think we probably won't do them again this year. We live in an area that just doesn't have a lot of kids and there aren't any kid-friendly Halloween things around here. And my kids don't seem to care about them anyway. (Sad for me, I love dressing up fr Halloween!) We didn't do costumes last year either (but we had also just moved in and were still unpacking/settling) and there were no trick-or-treaters at ALL. Maybe next year we'll have the funds to take a trip somewhere more kid-friendly for Halloween.

TPBM is waiting for November 1st to stock up on cheap candy and next year's Halloween decorations/supplies.

Oct 20, 2013, 8:25am Top

well of course!

TPBM is ready to put up christmas decorations already

Oct 20, 2013, 11:31am Top

No, at our house, Christmas decorations go up after Thanksgiving.

TPBM is enjoying not having to run the heat or the air conditioning.

Oct 20, 2013, 9:38pm Top

Yes! Yesterday was the first day with no a/c, and not yet cool enough fof the heat. This being Texas, it could go either way for the next few weeks. Sometime we use both on the same day.

TPBM has a fireplace and has used it recently.

Nov 1, 2013, 6:47pm Top

I have a fireplace but am cleaning it currently. I will probably use it soon.

TPBM Went trick- or -Treating last night

Edited: Nov 2, 2013, 8:28pm Top

I did take my daughter trick or treating. I'm a wee bit too old... ;o)

TPBM is about to sneeze! Wait, no... TPBM is about to yawn!

Nov 5, 2013, 9:51am Top

Well, I am *now*, JP! :P

TPBM is also on LT while at work (ahem). I should go now...

Nov 16, 2013, 12:38am Top

No, but I did use it at school today.

TPBM should probably got to bed right about now.

Nov 16, 2013, 9:28pm Top

It's not even 8:30 and I am in bed. I had 2 glasses of wine at dinner tonight and feeling quite....mellow. Sadly, 2 glasses of wine is all it takes these days...

TPBM is made of sterner stuff.

Nov 17, 2013, 7:03am Top

I don't think so as I haven't had alcoholic drinks for at least five years: I had a tendency (understatement) to overdo it and it is cheaper this way (both financially and healthwise)...

TPBM is the picture of good health.

Edited: Nov 17, 2013, 2:26pm Top

But I am in better shape than I used to be.

TPBM is starting a new craft project.

Nov 17, 2013, 4:02pm Top

well I'm thinking about it....sewing for christmas

Dec 3, 2013, 11:07am Top

I'm making a doctor's scrubs costume for my granddaughter. Her mom is making her a doctor's kit for Christmas. Just finished a Christmas stocking for my new granddaughter Sarah. Hooking a rag rug. Three or four quilts started. At least two embroidery projects underway and in the workbasket. Mulling a scrapbook project in my mind. Half a dozen ideas/projects for school in process.

TPBM always finishes one project before starting another.

Dec 5, 2013, 9:09pm Top

Um, no. I should, but I don't!

TPBM is finished decorating for the holidays.

Dec 7, 2013, 6:21pm Top

barely begun!

TPBM adds new decorations every year

Dec 8, 2013, 12:52am Top

Does buying new ornaments count? A lot of times I get ornaments for christmas, like these little ones shaped like birds that clip on instead of hang. I also sometimes buy them for myself.

TPBM has clip on ornaments.

Dec 10, 2013, 1:17pm Top

I've dissected one to use in a craft. Does that count?

TPBM has made a new craft this week.

Edited: Jan 24, 2014, 11:04am Top

This message has been deleted by its author.

Jan 24, 2014, 11:17am Top

I do a new craft in class with my kids every day. The person below me is a birdwatcher

Jan 24, 2014, 2:44pm Top

Very true. I consider them low-maintenance pets. :o)

The person below me needs to put on a sweater.

Jan 24, 2014, 11:05pm Top

No, it's actually fairly hot where I am.

The person bellow me enjoys nature hikes.

Jan 25, 2014, 1:12pm Top

If by hikes you mean leasurly walks alone or with the dogs, then yes.

The person below me just got a new puppy!

Jan 25, 2014, 9:15pm Top

No, but I got new books today. Doesn't that rank somewhere close to new puppies?! ;)

TPBM was also in pajamas before 9pm on Saturday night.

Jan 25, 2014, 9:20pm Top

#47 New puppies and new books do have a certain smell to them, don't they.

Well since it's not 9pm here yet, I can say that I plan to be.

The person below me is procrastinating.

Jan 26, 2014, 10:40am Top

about lots of things...sigh!

TPBM is tired of the snow

Feb 1, 2014, 10:31am Top

Not here. I love winter. We're hurting for any type of moisture right now. We're supposed to get some type of ice/snow tonight, tomorrow, Tuesday, and Friday.

TPBM has homework to finish.

Feb 1, 2014, 5:21pm Top

Lesson plans to write; is that close enough?

TPBM has purchased something interesting or unusual this week.

Edited: Feb 1, 2014, 10:31pm Top

Mustache (sun)glasses-for my boy's Valentine's party. Since I teach all boys, I have to be creative with this party. So we're having a mustache bash instead of a heart and flowers shindig.

TPBM is settling down for the night.

Feb 1, 2014, 10:46pm Top

Just as soon as I get off LT! ;)

TPBM is attending a Super Bowl party.

Feb 2, 2014, 8:26am Top

No not me, but tonight i'll be watching DA

TPBM wonders what DA stands for?

Feb 2, 2014, 4:18pm Top

Pff. It stands for Dumbledore's Army.

TPBM is now confused.

Feb 2, 2014, 4:42pm Top

Not about Dumbledore's Army; although being more pragmatic my first take on DA is ordinarily District Attorney. Life is confusing enough without multiple meanings for acronyms.

Speaking of acronyms, TPBM is or was in the military.

Feb 2, 2014, 5:06pm Top

No But two of my son's were and DA my dear freinds stands for Downton Abbey!

TPBM has never watched Downton Abbey

Feb 2, 2014, 10:44pm Top

Nope, but I would like too. Just have to find the time t start at the beginning.

TPBM is watching or has watched the Big Game tonight.

Feb 12, 2014, 1:31am Top

I DID watch the "Big Game", mostly for the commercials.

Along with many others across the globe, TPBM has watched at least one event in the Sochi 2014 Olympics.

Feb 12, 2014, 1:16pm Top

I've watched bits and pieces; some figure skating, snowboarding and skiing events.

TPBM has actually participated in a winter Olympic sport (extra points if it was something really crazy like luge!). (I've skiied, but wasn't really crazy about it. I'm unathletic, hate the cold, and terrified of heights)

Feb 12, 2014, 7:36pm Top

Ummm....I made a bobsled yesterday after school...out of cardboard....
That sort of counts. Right? We're using to teach our kids synergy in Friday's character assembly. It should be pretty funny. Then again we do funny skits. We'll, they're funny to us.

TPBM is doing a craft right now.

Feb 25, 2014, 3:50pm Top

I sing often!

The person below me would rather be in Australia.

Feb 25, 2014, 4:04pm Top

Boy would I!

The person below me is about to go on vacation.

Mar 13, 2014, 4:48am Top

No vacation for me :(
I've never been to America.
The person below me loves cats :)

Mar 15, 2014, 11:23am Top


The person below me has a funny story to tell us.

Mar 19, 2014, 9:30pm Top

I wish I could think of one. I have loads from the grandkids but my mind isn't pulling up the necessary files! But the person below me is contemplating a nice bubble bath right now!

Mar 19, 2014, 9:45pm Top

Well, now that you mention it, I am! ;)

TPBM recently caught up with a long-time friend.

Edited: May 15, 2016, 8:19pm Top

I've just been catching up with this group, which feels like catching up with a bunch of old friends!

TPBM has exciting summer plans (and will tell us a bit about them)!

Jun 7, 2016, 10:18am Top

We've scheduled our annual fishing trip to Port Aransas (red snapper, yum!) for later this month We've also made plans for our yearly family get together in Branson in July. We go to Branson because it's a place my parents enjoy going. Perhaps not exciting....but nice to have family together.

TPBM is experiencing a beautiful summer day.

Jun 7, 2016, 8:57pm Top

It was a lovely summer day. But I do look forward to it returning to the 70's tomorrow! I like having spring between my winter and summer!

TPBM is reading the most interesting book and can't wait to finish (but really doesn't want it to end)

Jun 8, 2016, 11:41am Top

I am! I'm about two chapters from the end of The Likeness by Tana French, and it is gripping. I stayed up much too late last night reading, and am anxious for my lunchtime to arrive so I can keep reading!

TPBM is torn about wanting to know if early reviews of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" are positive (previews opened last night in London), but also not wanting to read spoilers.

Edited: Nov 8, 2016, 4:57am Top

No interest whatever in Harry Potter. Ever! ETA: Oops. I've just realised this game is within a group called Hogwarts Express. Gulp. What time must I turn up to be blindfolded and shot?

TPBM has read Bill Bryson's The Road To Little Dribbling and will tell us if he or she enjoyed it.

Nov 10, 2017, 4:28pm Top

I've read other Bryson books (and enjoyed them), but not that one. I thought I'd restart the game, though! Here's one to get the game going again:

TPBM has seen all 8 of the Harry Potter movies, as well as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Nov 24, 2017, 11:31am Top

I have seen all the HP movies.

TPBM has already made plans to see The Last Jedi on opening night.

Jan 10, 5:09pm Top

Alas, I have yet to see The Last Jedi.

TPBM prefers Star Trek to Star Wars.

Jan 11, 5:39am Top

I do! But perhaps the Classic Trek is now a bit dated, and TNG is a bit self-consciously PC. I guess my favourites were DS9 and Voyager. Oh, and the movies.

TPBM disagrees.

Jun 12, 11:19am Top

Couldn't get into the reboot of the movies, but my favorite ST movie is the one with the whales.

TPBM can think of another film franchise they prefer.

Jun 14, 7:54pm Top

I'm not sure this is a franchise, exactly, but when I was very woozy post-surgery last year I watched a few episodes of the Phryne Fisher mystery series and enjoyed them quite a bit. I think there might have been a couple that I enjoyed more than once without knowing it.

TPBM has a favorite mystery series, either in print or on TV. If we're lucky, s/he will tell us what it is.

Jun 15, 7:30am Top

Currently, my favourite is The Bridge (Swedish/Danish TV series) which features a lead detective with a difference - she has Aspergers and finds it very difficult to get along with people, though she is an excellent detective.

TPBM also enjoys 'Scandi-noir'.

Sep 18, 2:41pm Top

Eh, it's a little too dark for me. Speaking of dark mysteries:

TPBM is excited to read Lethal White, Rowling's newest Cormoran Strike mystery (written as Robert Galbraith, of course).
