    Idol fans. ******* Idol fans. I would have chosen the bus one, but I don't suffer from motion sickness or hangovers. ;)

    Is there something you need to share with us, Pulse?

    I get bus sick, even without a hangover. [face_sick] But a hangover makes it 10 times worse as after you're sick you still feel sick.

    Good thing I know a great preventer for the headache part of hangovers.

    Waiting for public transport kills me, considering that my job consists of getting up early and hanging around at stations for several hours.

    The film one came close, though.

    Ohh, I was just taking a sample survey to even out the results of the oneupmanship game that friends of mine were playing on the weekend. My contribution is the car ride with judgemental family members [face_sick] and I have dealt with the sunny milk bus incident too.


    Why I get cravings for milkshakes when I'm hungover I have no idea...

    As much as reality TV blows, I had to say the birthday one.

    Damn Straight.

    All three Lord of The Rings Films, front row center. I almost screamed when I realized it was the only seat I could get into in Return of the King.

    Ender's quite right. Calling it a "choice" is misleading. In that your choice is work to those conditions or get fired.

    Being on a 27 hour flight ..... there might have been something else written after that but just the start of that question was enough.

    The Birthday one sucks. It's funny that some people would prefer to miss they're own birthday and get fired rather than getting a neck cramp. Heh.

    Idol fans for sure.I'd love to be on another 27 hour flight if it means I can get away from Idol..and the rest of that reality crap.
    You want reality? It's needing to pee at 32,000 feet at 980kmph and the toilets all not working and it's 20+ hours untill you reach Heathrow. [face_plain]

    Still beats teenyboppers talking about people who can't sing.
