Alright, my turn.

1. I'm from a very small farm town in Ohio, when I was younger, we had chickens, pigs and 60 acres of land.
2. Besides my two tanks and a couple bettas, I have a black and white English Springer Spaniel named Leah back home, as well as a beautiful grey cat named Raider (I'm a big Oakland fan).
3. I've played musical instruments all my life but the only one that stuck with me was guitar. I've also played piano, sax and drums.
4. I'm big. About 6'5", 290. People are intimidated by the piercings and goatee but everyone who really knows me, knows that I am a gentle giant.
5. I've loved metal all my life. Tops on the list would be Metallica (pre-1995), Pantera, Sevendust, Tool, Godsmack, Flaw. However, I am not the typical "metalhead", in my cd collection you'll also find just about every Coltrane/Davis recording ever, classic rock, A LOT of rap, jazz, a LITTLE bit of country, and some classical.
6. I'm a big hockey fan (obviously), a die hard Devils fan, and used to play every day for many years.
7. Favorite movie of all time is in my sig.
8. I'm going into my 5th year at Miami University here in Oxford, Ohio. I might graduate about this time next year. Took a year off in there cause I got sick of school.
9. I work at a German bar here at school. We have 17 German beers on tap as well as some great authentic food. My drinks are gin/tonics, jager and good old AMERICAN beer though.
10. Confessed computer/electronics/audio geek. Don't you hate fixing friends computers for no tips, or even a beer?

Ryan

Wow, very interesting thread!

Okay... here goes nothing ... 10 things ....

(1) I read "War & Peace", and "Crime & Punishment" in Russian, "Les Miserables, and "Swans Way" in French. In high school/college, I also took several years of German & Latin.

(2) I LOVE football (NFL). My husband refers to himself as the "football widow" during the f'ball season.

(3)I love to go camping. We have a 24' trailer, but also still have our tents, and I'll still "rough it" with the best of them.

(4) Both my husband and I are certified scuba divers. I hate cold water though, so I only dive when I get to go *south*.

(5) I'm way too much of a perfectionist at times. I'll re-start a grocery list if I've mis-spelled something, or have to cross something out.

(6) I'm an avid reader. Usually mystery/thriller/serial-killer psycological novels. I've been reading about a book a week for the last 20-25 years.

(7) I love the country, love solitude - mountains, waterfalls, tress. Would love a rustic log cabin (NO TV!!) in the middle of 100 acres of land.

(8 ) I've never lived more than 1/2 hour from the ocean, and never will (if I can help it).

(9) I was recently laid off (January) from my job of 15 years. So, I'm just-turned-40, with no idea of what I want to be when I grow up.

(10) I love cars, especially old muscle cars. I love to drive - it's my own "Private Idaho". I once went to visit a friend in Syracuse just for a "heck of it" day trip. Seven hours one way, spent 5 hours there. Left at 5am, got home at midnight.

Reef Lady, I think you are one of the coolest people ever. If you said you were a republican anywhere in there, I wouldnt think it, I would know
Is it just me, or are those like awesome qualities?

d9hp,

I'm flattered! I just read over your list though, and in reading it, I suspect you probably would NOT like me if you really knew me. LOL Why?

--> I just don't *get* hockey. Don't understand it, don't have any desire to. My husband does have a ton of hockey trophies knocking around though.

--> I'm an ex-smoker (last Oct.) and still want to go back every day (no, I won't!)

--> I love politics, but hate all politicians, especially republicans.

--> Oh, and you probably wouldn't like my kids!

Okay, okay, I'll concede....pork rinds are awesome!

LOL!!

Well, by your definition, we're ALL (take your pick):
a) nuts
b) psychos
c) lunatics
d) all of the above
. . . and therefore need to be taken away in straightjackets to cozy little padded rooms! LOL!
(Personally, I prefer option b. Don't want to be taken for a c, definitely, although it is quite plausible that I am d . . . although *muses* I didn't think I was related to cashews . . . j/k )

1. Sagittarius - good humored, crazy, blindly optomistic, honest but sometimes as subtle as a sledge hammer & impatient.
2. Love all kinds of music but especially the blues.
3. Would love to be able to play guitar but my patience lets me down. I have tried on numerous occassions to learn and own 2 electric guitars (a fender strat type and a gibson style) plus a steel string accoustic. Just tab would be great.
4. My husband and I live in a one room flat with only the bathroom being seperate from the rest of the room. It's what I call "open plan" living
5. Work from home.
6. Love food esp Thai.
7. Favourite holiday destination - Thailand.
8. Love travelling and have been to at least 11 different countries.
9. I love gardening and cannot wait to have my own place to do what I want in the yard ie. have a heap chooks, and a couple of my fav dogs
10. Favourite dog - staffodshire bull terrier
