@Gerard 

Me too! Unfortunately I bought a Fender Strat as my first guitar ages ago, when I didn't know much about electric guitars. But if things go well in a year I'll buy my second guitar, and choose one with a sweeter and fuller sound. Cheers, Oudis.

Allright, here goes:

 

  1. I am a hair dye addict… already this year it's been about 6 different colours.
  2. I am Canadian.
  3. I am really close with my mom, we talk daily.
  4. I have been with my dude for 11 years now.  We been "living in sin" for 8 years and are "happily unmarried".  heart
  5. I still don't like to "step on the cracks"...
  6. I am not a fan of the summer heat.  I have been anxiously awaiting fall since summer started.  I also have a slight sweater addiction...
  7. I love my Macbook, I don't care about the haters.  They are superior IMO.
  8. I am turning 31 years old this month.
  9. I am currently quitting smoking for about the 15th time. 

That's it.

That's fabulous, LHL. The first three weeks are the toughest. If it's been a month, you are doing great. Take it from someone who quit smoking twice!

Are you still keeping it up @LongHairedLady ?

 

1. I love Halloween/ Samhain despite my brother dying around that time.The  first few years were difficult.

2. I live about 2 hours from New Orleans in the next state over.

3. Speaking of which, I survived Hurricane Katrina. Woo Hoo!

4. I have a hiatal hernia which means I can't have citrus based foods/ drinks, tomato base foods (ketchup is ok with me), large amounts of chocolate, caffeine, greasy food, spicy food, alcohol or tobacco, and I have to watch it around fried foods. Milk is my best friend.

5. I was addicted to coffee before I was diagnosed with my hernia. I still love the smell of coffee. According, to my friends I make a good cup of coffee. Not bad for someone who has not drank it in 6 years.

6. Tea is my new addiction. I have drank sweet tea most of my life, a southern thing don't you know, but this summer tasted different kinds of tea. I have slowly weaned off sodas. 

7. I own three cats. They are like my family especially my oldest one. I have owned her for 11 years. I even evacuate them for hurricanes.

8. I found 2 of my cats near Halloween. Actually, one of them I did found on Halloween night while trick or treating. :)

9. I use drive for a living, delivering food. I love driving and going places. I have traveled to several states by car; however, I did not drive to most of them (too young to drive). Several people in my family have drove for a living. It must be in my blood.

@Sky999:

That sounds serious, isn’t there anything you can do about it but watch your diet? Take care of yourself,

Oudis.

I take medication for it, course watch my diet, make sure I don't gain too much weight, and sleep in a upright position which is a bit strange at first. There is surgery I believe; however, the doctors feel that since I am pretty young it will close up on its own. It has gotten a bit better over the years because I have learned my symptoms and learned how to regulate.

I hope it does close up on its own @Sky999, and I mean it. I can relate to your situation: I have a disk hernia (motorcycle accident) which bothers me a lot, and surgery isn’t an option (too risky). I also have a bad knee (another accident, this time because of, ironically, my Golden Retriever) and a bad ankle (a memento from the good old days when I practiced Martial Arts). I’m afraid I might end up using a cane.

1. Zombies really creep me out.

2. I have a birthmark that is shaped like a crescent on the tip of my pinky finger.

3. I slept in the Physics lesson yesterday.

4. I still use my iPod shuffle, even though I upgraded now.

5. I think Elton John is a little peculiar.

6. I broke my cycle chain last week.

7. My parents aren't entirely fond of my obsession with the Beatles. ahdn_paul_01

8. My class teacher hates me.

9. I have a hat like Micheal Jackson's.

@LittleBeatlemaniac, what is your class studying in physics now? When will you get your cycle chain fixed?

Thank you, I'm hoping it does too. I hope you don't have to use a cane. Is there any options for the knee and ankle injuries? I wish you luck.

Well, my knee got much better after physiotherapy, and stretching regularly is important too. As for my ankle, after a year of conventional medical treatment I found the closest thing to a cure in acupuncture. Both injuries bother me every now and then, though. Thanks for asking, @Sky999.

1. Got obsessed over the Beatles through Roy Orbison (knew who and how big they were before Roy, but never become obsessed until then)

2. Been playing flute for 4 years

3. Twin

4. Absolutely love watching movies, but I'm not movie expert (yet)

5. Canadian, but live in USA

6. 13 years old

7. Also obsessing over David Bowie (but when I was little, I used to think that he was really scary, like Marilyn Manson scary (who I still find enormously terrifying), but now I absolutely adore him)

8. Best experience was camp - even if it was educational (but we also got to do fun camp stuff, go to the movies, baseball game, dances, etc). Three weeks of hanging out with amazing people!!!

9. Able to understand Chinese, but have a terrible American accent if I speak it. Sucks when I have to talk to relatives and they start laughing at my broken Chinese :(

I could never find Marilyn Manson scary having grown up watching him play Paul in 'The Wonder Years'. Hard to take him seriously after watching him as a dweeb for so long. Oh, and his music was laughable.

The cycle has gone for repairs. We're learning about Motion now. I'm not really a science person.
