    And One Not So Cool Death

    I overdosed on Methamphetamine and Ephedrine once, I died from it. Some very gifted EMT's brought me back to life. Dying is not cool when you have so much **** to do! *13 yrs. sober*

    Boredom Is Not In My Lexicon

    Plan to keep on adding to my life experiences. It's not who has the most toys that wins, it is who has the most fun and can live to tell some one about it...if you can find some one interested.
