I was just talking in general, I agree though.


Hmmm, how do you know I'm not gay?

It really depends, but intelligence can be sexy but not vice versa so intelligence...

I don't, but I also couldn't know you were about to post (it could be someone else) and the majority on these boards I think will be straight and male.

Dissing Star Trek I could ignore (despite the fact that my dad has written for Trek), but this LOTR insult is the last straw.  Were you a man, I'd have to challenge you to pistols at dawn.

Funny, in my mind the two are linked. The last two times I saw pink flamingos were both with a Canadian friend of mine. Can't clearly remember any other encounter with the animals.

Anyway, if either species had to disappear completely in the rapture, I'd rather keep the Canadians here.

Reading an actual book, or listening to the audiobook?

Reading an actual book.  You can't fold down the corner of the cd to keep your place.  And real books have texture and smell that I find integral to the experience of reading.

Musical theatre or Improv theatre?

CD? What the hell is this mysterious "CD" thing you're describing? Try an iPod which remembers where in the audiobook you were, even if you listen to music or other books or podcasts and then return to the book  :wink:

As for the experience of reading - since I got hooked on audiobooks, hiking, camping, running, train travel etc. became linked to the experience of 'reading' for me.

Heh.  See, you kids with your baggy pants and mp3 players . . .

When I read, I like that to be the only activity I'm concentrating on.  I love the feeling of paper under my fingers, of a book binding stretching, the smell of the pages, even the sound the paper makes when I turn a page.  

When I do other activities, like hiking or whatever, I like to concentrate on just THAT experience.  I don't want to be distracted by other sensory input.  Likewise, I don't want to miss out an important part of a story because my attention is elsewhere.

A lot of this stems from the fact that my parents are both authors, and our house was absolutely packed with books.  

Plus, when I read the book, all the voices of the characters sound the way I want them to sound, not someone else's interpretation.  Not such a big deal with nonfiction, but when you include fiction it really does make a difference.
