    ETA: Actually, there is bright side to his endless computer talk. I now have no compunction about boring him silly with tales of The Amazing Race. I want to talk about it, so he now has to listen .
    For me it is Big Brother. He hates it! But when I want to talk about what is going on in the house, he must listen at least for 30 minutes. He won't remember a darn thing about it but at least he pretends to listen!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Well, yeah, BB for me too . And a little Survivor (I actually made him watch a YouTube clip when those four alpha males got sidelined a couple of seasons back - oh, their faces ). And I should have said "pretend" - I know he's not listening.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Rattus, I have the opposite problem being deaf in my left ear. Any time I'm a passenger, the driver always complains because I can't hear them. But most of the time I am content with that, but amazingly enough, I can always hear them complain about me not hearing them. THEN they speak up!

    My husband hates it when I've discovered a new topic in history that has caught my interest. He's so over hearing me go on about President Truman, but I'm also over hearing him talk about work. Just think 20 years ago, I had no idea what a gabled roof was or a hip joint (other than the 2 I happen to have. ) and now I even know the difference between the kinds of nails you use for different projects. And that knowledge is SO very important to me let me tell you!

    Amy Lee, I really wish you'd learn to enjoy YOURSELF. We have, and it's very rewading. The day you learn that there is no one more rewarding to you than you are.....you will be one happy camper!

    And, mrd, I hear the control freak coming out in you! I've been there, too...that's how I know.

    I know 'someone ' who used to go to Rocky Horror quite a bit and not only did the time warp but dressed as a Transylvanian to do it. And carried a big bag so as to have a newspaper, toast, toilet paper, and so forth, as needed during the movie.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    I never got into the midnight Rocky Horror shows when I was younger, but apparantly my husband did. He used to go see that and Heavy Metal at the midnight movies almost every weekend apparantly. (I was busy doing other things at midnight on Sat. than going to the movies. )

    About 5 years ago, we went to a special Halloween showing at the local college (I had never been with him to see it. I had seen it years ago, but it wasn't my thing at the time) and he packed a big bag full of stuff to take. Well this man who doesn't dance. Doesn't really attract too much attention to himself, who usually comes across in public as fairly staid. Got up and did stuff I had never in my life imagined he'd do. I was so jaw gapping stunned, that I couldn't believe he was stone cold sober and actually doing the time warp and other stuff UP ON THE STAGE IN FRONT OF THE SCREEN!!!!!
    He literally got out of his seat and RAN up there with people half his age.
    This is so unlike him that I couldn't believe it. I laughed my butt off that night.
