Eggsplosion I started again after 3 months off. It kinda sucks but I'm planning to get back on the wagon very soon. I have to wait till Thursday when I get paid though. I'll have enough money to buy nicotine lozenges.<br />
<br />
Mello I do have some tracks on myspace...send me a message if you wanna hear it. I'm anxious to do another demo cause I'm not real proud of this one but at least one of the songs is tolerable LOL. The songs on my myspace page are pretty mellow melodic rock. I'm terrible with genres. I've been told it sounds 'indie' which I guess it does somewhat.

You inspired my new name redheadsrule :-)<br />
<br />
Toadlilly I grow whatever is in season according to how much room I have in the garden. In the summer I mostly love to grow several kinds of peppers spicy and mild, roma tomatoes and some other variety as well, herbs like basil, dill, and lemon balm. Here in central Texas we have a year round growing season which is nice. In central Texas we have a year-round growing season which is so nice. There are things to plant every month of the year. Some new things I wanna try are garlic, potatoes, and peanuts. I wouldn't want a big crop of peanuts, I just wanna see how they do their thing. They are an interesting plant :-)

Are you still smoke free??

Have you seen naked animals? I saw a naked cat .

That is awesome and the best part is watching kids!

Wow that was a long time ago. I didn't exchange any gifts with my family last year. We were all pretty broke and decided to just buy gifts for my niece and nephew. It's really nice seeing them open their gifts. Especially my 3 year old nephew.

What did you get for christmas ?

Redheadsrule, I guess I wear socks that are somewhere in between. They are higher than the ankle but not more than halfway to the knee. <br />
<br />
Tbayfinn, I would eliminate desire for power and control from all humans.

Ankel socks or knee highs?

Well the only thing I've used in the last month is pot. So not so bad. I tried quitting that last week but it backfired and I started smoking cigarettes again after 3 months without them. I can't afford the nicotine lozenges I used to quit until next week unfortunately so I'm gonna have another week of smoking cigs. One day at a time is my mantra. Even one moment at a time. I can't get too far ahead of myself.

People always tell us that they feel sorry for us pulling them around but me and most of my co-workers love pedicabbing. It's great exercise and really gets your endorphins going. <br />
<br />
I most admire intelligence and genuiness in women. I like women who are active and have lots of interests. Open-mindedness is important. I mostly like women who are 25-35 but there are always exceptions. I am 32.<br />
<br />
The music question is a doozy and I don't have time to properly answer that. Rock music is my favorite genre. Pinback is currently the band I'm listening to the most. The types of songs that inspire me most usually start out slow and build up to a peak of some sort and then slow back down again towards the end. I've heard the name Jackson Pollock but I have no idea who that is.

I discovered it kinda randomly like most other people. It came up when I googled something. I was working a desk job and had lots of free time so I started writing stories on EP.

Okay, first day here on this site, not really sure why I am here. So to ask you your question, what got you to this website?

I do sometimes jump in puddles, I can't tell a lie. Not often enough though.<br />
<br />
I was intimidated too blueavocado but once you start reading it you realize that it is written for the common man to be able to read. It is not that difficult of a read vocabulary wise. It's just extremely detailed and quite repetitive at times. That's part of the reason I haven't finished it. It does get quite complicated as well.

yeah you said "belongings" so I wasn't thinking people...you listed 5 belongings BTW haha<br />
<br />
I think I would like to change my choices a little...I'd bring a guitar, a water purifier, and a knife.

Those were the first things that came to mind, definitely not the best choices LOL

hmmmm...I would want a pillow, a knife, and a lighter.

Dopeygirl, I hate Jello...seriously I never eat the stuff. Not sure what that reveals about me LOL. But grape Gatorade is my favorite if that helps :-)<br />
<br />
Alli44... I lied a little bit. I read the first 700 pages 2 years ago but I put it down and haven't finished it. The book did rock my world though and has changed my views significantly. I have moved on to reading other books on economic theory which a few years ago would have never interested me. Thanks for the reference, I'll check that out.

It is very long and you would probably hate it. But it radically changed my outlook on life.

i love sandals too.......best summer shoes! <br />
never read karl marx capital, but it sounds interesting!

Best book...Karl Marx Capital<br />
Favorite movie...not too sure, I loved Dumb and Dummer<br />
Favorite Food....cereal<br />
Favorite kind of shoe...sandals<br />
I don't wear Hanes or Fruit of the Loom...just boxers in general, I don't care who makes them

what's the best book you ever read?<br />
what's your favorite movie?<br />
what's your favorite food?<br />

Hanes or Fruit of the Loom?

Well it is really challenging at first. It took me a couple of months before my legs got strong enough to not be extremely sore after every shift. I've been doing it for 1 1/2 years now and it's gotten easier. It still is challenging when we're really busy and riding for hours on end. I am definitely in the best shape I've ever been in.

Well if you consider music art then I do all the time. I just got a new gig lined up for Nov 16th. I'll be playing a short set and simple set. Just me and a drummer opening up a show for 3 other bands. Should be fun. <br />
<br />
I also paint and use chalk occassionally. I enjoy it and I've created some things that I really like. I can't say I have any real talent with painting but it's fun and a good release.

I've always loved animals so eating them has become less fanciful for me. I guess getting to know a lot of vegetarians and seeing how healthy they are. And learning about how disgusting conditions are for most animals being raised for slaughter not to mention the conditions of the slaughterhouse. Also all the hormones and antibiotics these animals are filled with. <br />
<br />
I've also started organic gardening in the last 3 years so I can taste such a difference in locally grown produce as opposed to things you buy at the supermarket. I have never felt more healthy or clear-headed as when I was not eating meat. And getting a good balanced diet of veggies, whole grains, protein, etc.<br />
<br />
So it's really health issues and moral issues that have brought me to want to be vegetarian. I'm still not there yet but it is my next goal in line. I just quit smoking 2 months ago so I'm still kinda "reeling" from that one. I think by next year I'll be vegetarian.

Snakes are my favorite of all animals. I started liking them at a very young age. I would go to the library in first grade and read about snakes.

I hadn't either until they came to my town 6 years ago. I didn't even know they were here until maybe 3 years ago. It's the most fun job I've ever had. Kinda stressful too at times dealing with traffic. It's dangerous too. I've been hit by a car once, a hit and run by a drunk driver. I had passengers in the cab too. They were thrown out and I was thrown off my bike. They said they were okay and wouldn't wait for the police. They still gave me a $25 tip which I tried to refuse but they left it on my cab. My hip was sore for about a month after that but it got better.

that is an interesting sounding 2nd job you've got....i've never heard of such a concept..

I'm a substitute teacher and I am a pedicab chauffer on the weekends. For those who don't know a pedicab is a human powered vehicle. It is a bicycle attached to a cab that transports humans (usually drunk ones) to their destination with the help of a driver (that's what I do)
