-Which of the same habits you had as a teenager do you still have?
Coffee. Oy, frackin', vey.
-What notions about "the adult world" that you had as a teenager have you been disabused of, and how did they differ from what you thought?
That when adults (especially teachers or professors) act like they know what they're talking about, they actually know what they're talking about. BWAHAHAHAHA!
-Do you still listen to the same tapes you listened to at 16--not just the same music, but the same tapes? Which ones?
You betcha. I love cassettes. I still have some of the tapes my friend Chuck made for me, including a demo for Leigh Gregory's band (of which Chuck was a member).
-In Googling/Myspace searching your high school crushes (I'm not going to even bother asking whether you have, because of course you have), what have you found out about them?
Nothing. Actually I've very rarely googled my high school crushes because I still have these very juvenile crushes in adult life.
-What have you done as an adult that as a teenager you never thought you'd do?
Hmmm .... that's be a post in itself.
-How do you feel about the fact that the mainstream world views LiveJournal as the province of teenagers, and you're your age and on LJ?
Ummm, this should worry me?
-Do you think there is a certain type of adult that does LJ? If so, what type is that?
No idea. One of the things that's changed is that as a teen I copped an attitude of "I don't care what other people think of me" ... but now as an adult I REALLY AND TRULY DON'T GIVE A FUCK except that I like to have friends, so I focus on the things that matter - people skills, relationship skills, and so on - and forget about the BS.
-Do you have more money or less money than you did as a teenager?
Lots more. But there's this thing called "rent", that I don't recall having to worry about when I was sixteen ....
-Of the things that you didn't like about yourself as a teenager, which ones have changed, and in what way?
I'm a lot more comfortable around people, I find dating much easier, and I just generally feel way better about myself and about life.
-What do you think of today's top 40 music?
-What do you think of 80s top 40 music when you hear it today?
Heh. Love it. Maybe I'm biased, but I really think the songwriting was much better.
