Currently punching my way through "Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase For [Abraham] Lincoln's Killer". People give me books for Christmas presents, but I'd rather go to the library.

Oh, that's right--born in '86. Well, congratulations on finally becoming fully legal! (But what was in that glass, anyway? :P )

Superman:
You are mild-mannered, good, strong and you love to help others.

Green Goblin:
Going to almost any length to achieve greatness in body and mind has led to a hard working and power hungry businessman.

I can visualize the first more than the second.

The drummer in one of my bands would pick your brain dry if he knew that. He's a major-league DT fan.

I have to say, I didn't see Curtis' death coming. Dude, I'm telling you, Tivo (or equivalent DVR). They have dual tuners so you can record two shows at the same time, you aren't burning media all the time and the quality is great. A neighbor who had Tivo told me that Tivo won't work without being co...

Now all I need is a small bass amp, any suggestions? Just one--get something that's used. I'd bet diamonds to little green apples that there are many amps on eBay, just for starters, that haven't been used much for over a year, ever since the buyer (or recepient of a gift) decided he wasn't gonna u...

Oh man. I can really empathize--Nibs and Tya are very precious to me as well. They're indoor cats, never go outside beyond the screened-in back porch, just so nothing like this will happen to them. One of 'em did get outside once and I consider myself lucky I was able to corral him. I know you won't...

At last, finally, it is a Happy New Year, personally speaking. '06 ended on a higher note than did the past several years (mostly having to do with how I spend the paid portion of my waking hours). Got a nice fire going in the fireplace right now. That's always relaxing, especially when I turn off a...

Wow. Those two pics only barely resemble the same person. :D Well, Rich Williams, a good fifteen years older than you or me, can drop some 200 pounds in his early fifties. I find this inspiring (although he had a GI bypass to help him along; he's reported to have called it the best 40K he ever spent...
