This isn't the post I was thinking of making last night. That post was going to be about my grandmother's Suzy Damn Doll. To be a Suzy Damn Doll is to be the thing somebody kicks around when they're mad about something or someone else. I gather my grandmother had a doll called Suzy who served this purpose for her, but by the time I was in the picture the expression was applied to people, usually in a context of defiantly saying "I'm not going to be your Suzy Damn Doll," or suggesting that someone not stand for being someone else's Suzy Damn Doll.
I thought of that stuff after hearing atleastdefiant talk of having had such a relationship to her stuffed animals at some point (presumably years ago) (ha!).
But tonight I'm wondering about fun, and what you think is fun, and how you know when you're having fun or how you define fun, and how much fun you think you have, and stuff like that there. So here's a poll, and feel free to comment, of course. Me, though---I may not get back here much before the weekend's over, as I'm aiming to have some fun of sorts one doesn't have on a computer.
Off the top of your head, what do you like to do for fun?
Which of the following conditions would you say are generally necessary for your favorite kind(s) of good solid fun?
Which of the following conditions would you say are in themselves practically sufficient for one of your favorite kinds of good solid fun?
