I, too, am an introvert. However, I'm also the kind of person who is terrified of doing anything by myself, and I can be very outgoing with my closest friends and family. (And on the forum, as I'm sure you all can tell. a-hard-days-night-george-10)

@ewe2 your cat is... actually there are no words to describe her beauty a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

No one thinks you're crazy if you talk to a cat all day a-hard-days-night-paul-7

She is pretty but I think all cats are pretty and their personalities are unique. She doesn't just like boxes, she likes chewing on them. She doesn't just use a scratching post, she uses me as a scratching post to get my attention when she wants something (that's a very tortie/calico thing). She doesn't just miaow when I come over to give her a pat, she miaows when she's done her business from the bathroom to let me know she's finished and I have no idea why. And she doesn't just play with toys she finds random things like rubber bands, or a hair tie or those little round competition things that you get with condiment jars and plays with those. She's a bright, easily bored kitty and headbutts me and licks my nose to wake me up in the morning because its 5am and you feed cats then apparently.

She sounds incredibly precious. heart (as for the wanting-food-at-5am thing, I have to lock my door at night so my cat doesn't eat me, because if I don't feed him every time he looks at me that is what he will do.)

It is a a slightly worrying thing with obligate carnivores that they'll quite happily eat you if you're dead enough. They do try to wake you up first though. The early mornings are my fault, it's how I try and keep insomnia at bay which doesn't always work, and now she's used to an early breakfast. But in summer that's a good thing, she gets useful moisture to get her through the day. Winter is going to get interesting paul-mccartney

Oh no he likes live prey as well.

True. The only problem is that my kitty chooses to wake me up by biting me. Which I do not appreciate. (still jealous Beatlebug? 😉 )

Some cats genuinely don't get that you're not another cat that doesn't mind biting. Noot always wants to play-bite and gets over-enthusiastic at times, but she's just a kitty, she doesn't know.

I'm just seeing the gist of this conversation, and I would like to add that lucy wakes me up to let me know she wants to be let out of my room by knocking everything off my shelves, usually at six oclock in the morning.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Can we trade?

only joking of course, I wouldn't trade Mattisse for anything. He may be evil but I still love him ahdn_george_08

And it's about time this thread had another question: What is your favorite game from the Forum Games section? 

I literally joined the forum to play Hangman but I prefer the guess-the-song-based-on-the-picture game and the Beatles Trivia- Even Easier! thread.

Beatles trivia (Even Easier) because it's so funny. making ridiculous jokes about my favourite bands is what i live for.

a kindred spirit! 

Originally I was playing this but it was too easy and frankly a little boring, and I was on the BB homepage and noticed a little link that said "Beatles hangman" so I clicked it and the rest is history.

It's a three-way tie between Caption It, Bakers Dozen and Smiley Adventures. a-hard-days-night-george-9I'll admit I've completely gone off the A-Z game though in recent months, and have only ever contributed letters to Beatles Hangman twice, I think. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

I have three burning questions which I desperately need answers to.

Just kidding a-hard-days-night-george-10

Here's my real question: Do you have any siblings?

I have a younger brother. He's about two years younger but is almost as tall as I am. (almost. almost dammit!)

I ran out of inspiration for Beatles trivia and persistence for Beatles hangman. My new game is Beatles jellyfish: you listen to Beatles, and bloop BLOOP bloop BLOOP.

addendum: I have a younger brother and sister, by 4 and 6 years respectively. bloop BLOOP bloop.

One brother who was 10 years younger than me. He was killed in a car wreck on his 26th birthday.

I have 2 half-brothers (my dad's sons with his first wife) who are 10+ years older than me.
