    How about eat a blood sausage?

    I've had haggis when in Scotland...from what we were told, traditional haggis has blood in it. I dunno...maybe LittleToe can enlighten us.

  • Ingenuous

    Stand up to/openly disagree with my parents.

    Be honest about negative characteristics of the Org.

    Love myself instead of constantly stewing in guilt.

    Like/Love/Pray for non-JWs - especially doing such without the ulterior motive of ultimately converting them.

    I wear short or shorter skirts now. (Nothing really outrageous just more comfortable lengths like kneelength or a little shorter).

    I went through my closet and got rid of practically everything long and dowdy . To think, I wore dowdy uncomfortable clothing so other people could feel good? I only kept a few long ones that were more stylish. I also do some of the things that Undercover mentions except for the cigars and strip clubs ha, ha.

  • Finally-Free

    I don't do anything now that I didn't do as a JW. I must have been a very bad JW.

    -I have certainly been changing my wardrobe (I look at some of those things and wonder- what was i thinking?!?)

    -Have sex- lots of it, in all different positions (even some of the "naughty" things- which I really never understood- seriously, must you be involved in everything every single person does!)

    -I get drunk- and it's fun- last New Year's Eve I walked around NYC saying hi to everyone- including the police- even struck up a conversation with some random guy walking down the street. And I got drunk in a club.

    -Swear if I feel like it (oh wait, did that before)

    -Hubby and I like to make fun of the porn we see on tv- which means I must be watching it.

    -Buffy the Vampire Slayer became one of my all time favorite shows, and I have watched lots and lots of vampire and R-rated movies.

    -Meet wonderful people on this wonderful apostate site and try to learn what I was being told. (gasp!)

    -Celebrate every possible holiday and birthday- I have 13 cousins on my mom's side and the past couple of years it's been my goal to catch all of their birthdays!

    -Going back to COLLEGE in september to get myself a Career that does not involve knocking on people's doors.

    Oh my, where do I begin? hmmm...

    I refuse to go door-to-door for anything, no matter what. I party when and how I want, eat what I want, wear what I want, say what is on my mind without censoring, defy authority, watch whatever movies I want, read whatever books I want, choose my own friends, vote, do absolutely nothing on Sundays, live without guilt or shame, leave religion to others, that's all I can think of right now.
