I really, really like spinning around, as fast as I can, until I make myself sick.  Then I run fast as I can, face first into walls.  It's clean family fun.

I also collect Pez dispensers.

Nothing to see here.

one of my obsessions...which im quite ashamed of is...*deep breath in* watching documentaries...(i see one of u can empathize tongue.gif) this is getting worse...b4, i was only a casual watcher, i just watched the nature ones, then, i started to become more serious, and actually watch to learn, and the nature ones werent always on so id go to discovery health and watch the ones about physiology, then, i started to abuse it, (ex. telling others of what i learned on the programs, and sometimes being surprised that others did not know this) and now, i am a full blown addict...i know this, because i just downloaded part of a NOVA docu. on string theory off of their website...among my friends i am somewhat known as a 'freakin genius' and these docu's are the true secret behind it all...  and after watching all of these shows, and reading a brief history of time (cant wait til i get universe in a nutshell [im a total nerd...)) this is a face i see from ppl i talk to, quite often... eek7.gif

Documentaries rock and they are much better than reality TV

documentaries - various . Yes , they must be watched .

I climb redwood trees by nailing into them in the spots between the bark ( redwoods have extremely thick bark and you need to be carefull you dont nail into more bark then you do tree . ) with extra large nails then using the nails as a ladder nailing them in as I climb . Not easy , but few view's of the world are better then the top of a 130 ft redwood ! Especially at night . Its also not too hard once you get up to 25 ft or so because then you can just climb the branches as they are high up .

As far as I know , nobody else even attempts that .

for you who live outside of where redwoods grow , here is a pic .

I used to have two redwoods (though one branched off into the equivilant of two trees. . .thus being three. . .) in my front yard. My friend liked to climb them and them jump onto his roof. . . . anyway. . . .

I too have a thing for vampires. I can't wait until I can get a good set of fangs. I don't think I'll have them made permanent, but custom ones would be good (as opposed to the weird ones you get at Hot Topic. . .) And no, it's not really a fetish. . . though I don't know how to describe it. . . .

I write obsessively because I don't like anything that I read. Since I can't find a good book to read, I write one. Does that count?

Pill bug races ?

  Moe once had a pillbug. His name was Harry. Harry won many pill bug races. We had much fame and fortune. Then one fatefull day ( i think it was a tuesday) Moe accidently squashed poor Harry and his Lil wife Esther. They had been celebrating one of his victories in my left shoe. They must have gotten drunk and passed out there instead of returning to theri little pill bug hole.
  Poor Harry. A master Pill Bug racer, reduced to nothing but a smear on my sock.

For you Harry :
