Any other long-distance, long-term couples out there? My boyfriend and I are coming up on our second-year anniversery, and are looking forward to however much time is left on my ticker before we can get married. We do like to talk, but sometimes we just don’t have that much to say. Does anyone have any ideas for things we can do together when we’re apart? We use Skype (may God’s blessings pour down on those who created that program!) to talk… I read aloud from books to him sometimes, and we’ve recently taken up playing World of Warcraft together, a massively-multiplayer online game. We’re geeks, what can I say? And we’re learning about each other as we play; like, I like to use the map, he doesn’t; how we react when we have to get the other’s attention fast, etc. We also have ‘movie nights’ where we both obtain a copy of the same movie, then play them on our computers simultaneously while keeping connected via Skype.
Does anyone else have ideas of other things we can DO? Things we can/should discuss pertaining to marriage, life, the universe, and everything? We’ve been through several of those online question lists. ^^;;
My second question: is it possible to cook microwave popcorn, the kind in a pre-packaged bag, without a microwave, using just an oven or stove or even a toaster? Or will the bag just burn? I’m asking because the apartment I’m subletting for the summer hasn’t gotten a microwave quite yet, though we will get one soon, and I’m craving popcorn. We have some of the microwave sort mentioned above, and I didn’t see any of the sort you can cook on the stove when I was at the grocery store earlier. So, is it possible?
