Writer's Block: Long ago and far away

Jul. 28th, 2010 | 09:09 am

Do you wish you had grown up in another time and/or place? if so, when, where, and why?


I like things like tampons, civil rights and indoor plumbing, so growing up in a different time is out. I wish I'd grown up with more Americanized parents that hadn't left me to fend for myself. Public schools in big cities don't raise a girl right.

people that are too consumed with their own importance to be kind to others

growing

32) Do you believe/appreciate romance?

fav: red caviar; least fav: it's another russian food but i don't know how to say it in english. it's basically fish jello. flavorless gelatin with fish and hardboiled eggs in it that you eat with horseradish sauce. just thinking of it makes me a little queasy

no

35) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
