Reply to: Three random questions for a Monday morning by Billina
1. When someone else is talking, do you ever unintentionally mimic their facial expressions? I do this all the time, and I'm wondering if anyone else does.
No, but I have an awful habit of picking up on their accent/manner of speaking.

2. Do you think the definition of the word "gay" is changing, or do you think it still means ONE thing, and that it shouldn't be used by people to describe something weak or lame? I work with someone who uses it that way, and we got into a mini-debate over it. WDYT? What are your thoughts on words changing meaning in general?
I think it's offensive. I just don't tolerate it, the same way I don't tolerate people using the word retarded to describe something dumb. Using a word that describes and entire group of people as a put down because it is "socially acceptable" to do so is just rude and ignorant. It's just a more under the radar form of homophobia, IMO.

3. What time is it where you live?
around 6:30pm
