7. I smoke a little marijuana - only a small bit- but it helps round the sharp edges of the day.
8. I have 2 cats - storm, a long haired tortoiseshell female, and shadow, a semi-long haired ginger
9. I'm a workaholic - I have a part time eve job in a local bingo hall, where I cashier, and I run my own tv and home entertainment installation service
10. My elderly parents need a lot of help from me, so, most days, I spend round their house, shopping, tidying, and cooking etc- this takes up about 5-6 hours of each day.
11. Im 44 years old
12. I have OCD in so many parts of my life.
13. I hate lateness- if u say 10 o'clock, then be there for five to ten, not quarter past!!
14. I hate laziness - if you can do- then bloody well do it, don't leave it for someone else- sorry, rant over.

16. Noone noticed I used 16. Twice
17. I love cooking, and baking
18. I need to go to the shop to get tobacco in a moment. '!!
19. Err yes please, sorry, wife asked if I want more coffee- as if I would say no!!
20. My parents divorced about 30+ years ago, but still live in the same house together- now I know it sounds weird, but they still sort-of get along, but mum sits in her room, and dad sits in his room- now it does get Akward when dad says - ask mum for- and she says tell him---and he says- why is she---, and she says tell him - well you get the picture - me running backward an forwards - tell him this - tell her that- but I've lived with it for 30 years- and it's my sort-of normal now
21. I live in the south-east of england- Essex- Southend- and the towns claim to fame is that we have the longest pier in the WORLD !!
22. I sometimes feel very low and not worth anything- my depression comes and goes- but lately, it's been around lots.
23. I'm back from the corner shop now - I've bought my tobacco- and I've just smoked a small joint- so things may get a bit weird now onwards !!
24. I only ever shower- haven't got time to run a bath, lay there, soak, wash, wipe bath over - no thanks - a quick shower- all done.
25. I'm a quarter of the way through this list- Im a very keen photographer- lots of my pics are on picyou, and streamzoo- if you want details - msg me- I only photograph nature and wildlife- so pervs - dont bother !! Lol
26. I try to post a new story on Ep- every day- but some days it's difficult to find time. - and yes - I've got a free morning today - hence this post.
27. I hate, loath, HATE bad spelling and grammar - especially if it's in an important letter. - when I get a letter in the post- if it has spelling and grammar issues, I let them know about it. I don't mind accrinoms - btw, ATM, lol, even cu l8r is ok in msgs, but not in the real world please.
28. I don't drink alcohol - maybe at Christmas, but otherwise, no thanks
29. I dislike drunkenness
30. I found Ep by accident.

32. I love the sound of rain, falling on my corrigated plastic roof in my concervatory.
33. I'm a very keen gardener- love growing all sorts of seeds, and flowers, and bulbs.
34. I once grew a shed full of marijuana- but the smell - you could smell it from outside the shed- so I cropped and smoked what I could- before the police got wind of it!!
35. I'm very adventurous sexually, but only with women. Got no problems with gay men, two of my very best friends are gay, and I've worked with two gay men In one of my first jobs. They are all sooo funny with the things they say and do- but I'm afraid my bum is exit only. Don't like the thought of it I'm afraid. - well there goes a few more viewers. - sorry guys - I love u all really - but just not for me.
36. I love true blood- the tv series- brilliant.

40. I don't get a lot of sleep these days.

52. I ride my pushbike everywhere
53. I had nearly two years of counciling after a nervous breakdown.

55. It's taken me an hour so far- I love pasta and spaghetti.

57. I once solved the rubiks cube in 1min-16 seconds
58. I'm not that keen on dining out in restaurants - you've got to dress up, get there, wait ages for your food. I get so little free time, eating is a need, not a luxury.
59. I love going out clubbing - 4/4 beats banging away, girls dancing, the feel and the sound of the music.
60. I've seen all of the original star wars movies - new hope, empire, Jedi, - so many times, I think I know the script for each film

66. Two thirds of the way through - I sleep on the left side of the king size bed i own.
67. I think the world is a cruel place sometimes - wars, destruction, murders.
68. My younger brother was killed by girlfriends lover - in fact - he murdered them both. - that's made you stop in your tracks, hasn't it?

68. Every day - I miss Steve, my brother.
69. - oh now there's a nice number- hmm naughty thoughts - lol
70. I write and compose club music on my PC, using a piece of software called "reason"
71. I have a huge collection of vinyl Lp's and singles
72. I download music and don't always buy the cd- and I know the artist doesnt get paid etc, but it's the way if things now days- in my youth, we used to record Lp's to cassette, what's the difference??
73. I have a magical gift for numbers - I can work out the cost of my weekly shopping, to within a couple of pounds - I can add many numbers together in my head- in fact, to me, math is sooo easy- I really can't see why anybody has a problem giving me change in a shop, if I give them the odd 21pence
74. Im addicted to these 24 hour news channels - when I was young, you had to wait for the evening news on the tv- now it's there all day, every day- an if there a news story like the super storm in the USA recently, I'm glued to the tv all the time

89. Christine by stephen king is my favorite book.
90. Nearly there - I grow mustard and cress, on a saucer, with tissue paper, on my window ledge.
91. I ask lots of silly questions on Ep
92. I don't always get answers from my silly questions - and then I think nobody can be bothered - and then I feel I can't be bothered any more, and then I post some more.
93. I wonder if my life is complicated - and I wonder if other people have the same issues as me.

Have a good Christmas and happy holidays

Very good!
Though I've noticed that you said you don't like spelling errors etc, and I noticed a couple after :-) I believe it was number 73 and a couple after that number.

The way I see heaven and hell, we live in hell and in the after life if deserving we go to heaven. I'm a strong believer in god and angels.

Most share the same issues.
I also have depression problems, they come and go lately I've been in a good place. And wish better for you :-)
cats are amazing friends I used to have two Buddy who is no longer with me. He was my best friend! And my other is Furface -ginger short hair. Love him to bits! I also have a dog named Tonka he's a pure black lab. Also a great fun loving friend!

I put those there on purpoise to see if ne 1 wood notice!! Lol

Thanks for you're great comments - I must find more time to chat with you.

Thank you again four replying !! Lol

I love #31....awesome! Lol

Thanx for the comment-
Yeah - that's one of my favorites
Mark xx

Very interesting. You are obviously very smart. By the way when holding your wee, wearing a nappy actually makes it harder because you give in to the pressure soorner. For me anyway, the need comes in waves. So long as I can concentrate and hold on then the need goes away and I can then function again without consciously concentrating but then there is another wave and of course more concentration required.

Thank you for your comments - will chat if u online when I get home from work


Wow. You know. Your life is not insignificant at all. It's jam packed! Thank you so much for sharing your world. Xx

Thank YOU for reading and commenting
Thanx edwina xx
Mark. Xx

Very interesting! Now I have a much better picture of you. We are quite different in many ways, but with some similarities.

Perhaps each of us should list our own 100 facts.

What a great idea - thanx for reading and putting down your thoughts
Mark xx
