lj socializing / surprises versus anticipation / I speak regular and Dixie American


Whew! I just responded to a ton of the comments in my journal and sprinkled a few comments around your journals... when I get anti-social, it piles up and then when I'm finally ready to communicate I have a TON of socializing to do! Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I love it. I never reply right when the first few comments come in, because I like to savor them, read them a few times before responding. And I usually read every entry on my friends page a few times -- first I skim everything to see if there is anything really exciting, then I go back and read everything completely, then later I go back and read again to prepare to comment (and then often I realize I have nothing to say). Keep in mind that I am a very, very fast reader. Most books I read about two pages per minute. Not sure how many words that is, but it's a fairly good estimate, regardless of the book's size.

By the way, I'm pretty good at responding to comments but I am TERRIBLE at email. It can easily be months before you get an emailed response, comments take two days, usually.

I'm not much for surprises. I just don't get much out of them, usually... I like to anticipate. I'd rather buy tickets for a concert three months in advance and salivate over them for that length of time than have someone give them to me as a surprise the day before. I'd still be excited, but I'd have missed all that delightful anticipation. You'd think I wouldn't be that way, as impatient as I am, but eh, I'm a walking contradiction! I do like mystery though. So telling me in advance that you are going to give me a present but not telling me what it is is a VERY good idea (though I will whine that my curiosity is killing me). Are you an anticipation or surprise type of person?
