Where do you fall on the scale of ROCK evolution? Are you stuck in a cave in the middle of a Nordic tundra with nothing but a shield and sword to defend yourself, or are you armed and ready with your AXE and the sheer power of a killer lick to take on the Pop enemy who is lurking in the distance like a Liger searching for a tasty hyena? Let's find out...

About me:Our baby Wesley
Face it... you sing too when you're driving in the car. Only I would be crazy enough to put a camera on the dashboard and tape it
Jokers: An Adventure in Food
(in crap-ass quality because youtube won't let me upload anything bigger!)
I look better on myspace
I want to be the one who walks into the room and sparks a sense of confusion. I want to disrupt whatever is going on, and throw a wrench in the everyday monotonous flow. I'm the kind of person who likes it when I'm not gotten... so if you don't get me, good.
I'm totally opposed to anyone who blames their irresponsibility on any one other than themselves.
I am not impressed by drug use or users. (Unless, of course it's "Synth Coke")
I am not impressed with people who claim to be open minded, because usually those are the same people who refuse to listen to a view point that is different from their own.
I have NO guilty pleasures, just pleasures.
I love my friends and family, so much, too much... but I prefer solitude.
Here's some stuff I like:
music, kitties, singing karaoke, drawing, roller skating, scoping out garbage houses, Galaga, sewing, wasting time on myspace, making jewelry, cooking, all sorts of art, taking long bubble baths, playing our antique upright piano, figuring out how to play my favorite songs, make-up, taking pictures, cheap pilsner (Pabst, Old Milwaukee, Grain Belt, etc.), hanging with my Dad, The State Fair, American Idol, graphic design, tattoos, talk radio, playing the guitar, dying my hair assorted colors, being married, all you can eat, living in Iowa, shopping, painting little pictures on my fingernails, reading horrible gossip rags, crocheting, reading in general, being the person that I am, without apologies or regrets!
I've been married to Chuck since February of 2000,
and we have been together since July of 1997.
I LOVE him, oh dang!!!
Chuck always has something interesting to say,
and his blog is proof of that.
He's a talented writer, musician, computer guy, and husband!
He makes me giddy, even after 10 years!!!
The coffee cup proves it... he IS the "#1 Husband"!!!
A very dear friend of mine passed
away in January of 2007. I will miss him and love him forever.
Rest in peace, Esoteric.
I like taking personality quizzes and all...
but they only tend to prove how much of an ass I am.
|Your Birthdate: June 22|
You tend to be understated and under appreciated.
You have a hidden force to do amazing things, doing them your own way.

Your unconventional ways have more power than they (and even you) know.
Your strength: Standing up for what you know is true
Your weakness: You tend to be picky and rigid
Your power color: Silver
Your power symbol: Square
Your power month: April
(what's with all these red x boxes? Where did my pictures go?)
<"border= 0"> <"MySpace"/>....
Here's a quiz I made:
I love to play Lottso!
Make matches bingo-style and earn scratchers for big token payouts.
Who I'd like to meet:
I'd like to meet some folks I'd like to get to know again.
Myspace is great for that.
So far I've found several people I've lost contact with,
for which I am very thankful.
