Alright, so I'm finally back on the internet after a long hiatus of being grounded, though I imagine that story won't be of interest to you all.
So, hello guys [Smile]

I sure hope it has something to do with beer and nudity. Otherwise it wasn't worth it [Wink]

Ugh, grounded? How old are you that you're still being grounded?

Time to give your parent or guardian an uppercut to the jaw...you won't be hearing any of that "grounded" nonsense anymore. (Or, grow up and move out.)

Age helps with that.

I'm sure age can have some effect on the outcome of the other as well.

Ironically it sorta does.

Lets keep in mind that my parents essentially portray the typical Dateline watching over protective parents. Lets also keep in account that at the end of this summer I was being moved to Las Vegas in the middle of high school. So as the summer ended I finally decided to have some high school fun. By which I mean I enjoyed the last week or so with Vodka, Rum, and Wine. Then we flew to Vegas, we then went to Minnesota, my parents had VIP Invitations to the PGA Finals or whatever so we stayed at my grandparents home. At ten o' clock in the morning one of those nights my parents called me and started yelling at me for, *ahem*, having a 'Space. I was going to have EVERYTHING, I mean EVERYTHING taken away for this. So being a reasonably minded teenager, late at night and extremely frustrated, I ran away, en route to Minneapolis, bout 3 AM I decided to hitchhike, first car I put my thumb to is a police officer, I'm escorted home. My grandparents tell my parents, they fly from Chicago back and a three day interrogation ensues, all my summer activities were revealed, that fact that I, well, hard to say this, but used to cut came out. After some honest openheartedness the yelling stop and I just had internet and texting taken away until they decided to return it. I just got it back. I honestly think I deserved it.

Speaking of which, I put my full name on the (EDIT: Not Flickr) Frappr thing, how would I remove that?

Am I already so old and "out of it" to not know what "having a 'space" means? Maybe I just was never "in to it"

Anyways I hope you learned something, not that drinking is wrong mind you. I hope you take something good away from this experience.

I'm very familiar with this scenario. Not first hand , but still very familiar.

It's a common one, it seems to me, in the past and presently.

Nonetheless, you erupt from the other side of the apple sauce and now you're in gravy. If you really can imagine the sensations involved with that, thoroughly, you'll get what I'm saying.

Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.

Dang! It sure makes what went on during my teenage years very tame! H*ll! We didn't really have the Internet back then! That only happened when I got into Uni. THEN the trouble started. ;-)

I'm glad to be back, I feel like I haven't had a meaningful (or entertainingly meaningless) conversation in forever. So I hope to try to pop back into discussions.

I'm not sure though, on GC or Frappr? I don't remember my Frappr account at all. I just need it deleted

On Frappr. If you don't remember your information, you can put in your email address (that you used to register) and they will email your password to you. (Mine was a random combination of letters and numbers.) I don't know any other way to tell you how to correct the issue, other than logging in and removing yourself. I guess if you don't have that email address, you might be able to contact Frappr somehow and have them delete you. /shrug
