*Note to self: Wear panties before climbing up on any pedastal.*

Actually, from the book I have been reading a lot of your list would fit a typical Leo. Although what you should find out what your rising sign is and then read it too. I never thought I was a completely typical Gemini, and then read something that mentioned rising sign and, well, it explains a lot. (Now I probably sound flighty. )

Aside from the fact that I have a really big penis (actually I don't but whos checking?) I may actually be that evil twin of yours, the one that turned Republican after 40+ years of poisoning my mind with Massachusetts liberals. Ugh.

Not all conservatives are greedy. I am, but I'm sure some of em aren't.

Hey ru, I've seen pictures of your penis. It's pretty big, for a Republican that is.. Did you have to get it reduced so you could turn Republican? That's what I hear. From women, anyway..

You'd feel right at home here in Colorado Springs. Damn I gotta move to Boulder!

Catch ya later evil twin.

You still are an unruly child.
So am I.
Where were you stationed?
Maybe our paths crossed and we were looking the other way.

Hi Candy, thanks for stopping by. "Unruly child" is a formal designation by the juvenile court (in Ohio anyway) for someone who isn't quite a juvenlie delinquent, but is also a bad boy.. I kinda like it!

Watching your blog now,
