    So we've all been around for awhile, thought we should share some stuff about ourselves other then glass. How about ten things, non glass related. I know it's hard to think of non glass stuff, but I bet we could get some funny responses! Here it goes....

    2. I've had grey hair since I was 12.
    3. I'm obsessed with body art but only have 3 tattoos.
    4. I have 14 body piercings.
    5. I ride dirt bikes and skateboards.
    6. I'm into cars as much as most guys.
    7. I get buzzed off one beer, but I can drink 12 without puking.
    8. I like internet friends better because I can shut em up with the click of an X.
    9. I'm scared of the dark.
    10. I'm addicted to Chai tea.

    Re: damn..
    I like this topic, not only do the 10 things tell so much, but also which 10 things are shared reveals something also. It's hard to think of 10 that are good... I feel for ya Jude, I've had that happen before. Type out long posts in Word/Notepad and save them, them cut and paste....

    4. I've been single since I started working with glass, somewhat by choice.
    5. I'm gifted with mad computer skillz, but despise working in that field, so I don't any more.

    Re: 10 things
    1. All the survival skills and practical how-to-make-it -work-with-what you've got, and what to do, life skills that I needed and use to this day, I learned in Girl Scouts....really, this is true.

    2. All the rest of what-not-to-do-in life, I learned after I was requested to leave the Girl Scouts......

    3. I was actually quite attractive when I was your age, but luckily my husband still likes me now.

    4. I always told my kids they could tell me anything....I now know far too much........

    5. Benjamin Franklin was my 10th cousin. Charlemaine is in the family tree as well as Queen Elizabeth, but I still don't see how that does me much good since none of the crown jewels are on my dresser.

    6. I began college (nursing school) when my kids were 2 years old and 2 months old. And I did it all on scholarships and food stamps, graduated with honors and took care of little ones at the same time, so I'm not much up on hearing any excuses on why someone can't do something.

    7. I met my husband in a bar where he was playing music while I was moonlighting at my former occupation(cocktail waitress) for the evening. He liked me cause that wasn't my real job and because I had a sewing machine. I liked him cause he had a cool camper-truck held together with about a million interesting bumper-stickers. I saw the truck outside before I saw him inside, and I knew I would like whoever owned it.

    8. We don't have a living room or a bedroom anymore, we just have one room that we sleep and eat in, cause I threw out the living room furniture, and moved the bedroom into the living room so I could have a room for my glass workshop. Luckily for me Eddie is easy to get along with, cause I did the household rearrangement while he was at work one day. Surprise honey, you're home!!!

    9. I was alive when it was unusual to have 2 holes pierced in one ear, and one in the other. Which of course I did.

    10. Quite often, opinions and pointed words just fall out of my mouth, so I try to keep it shut for the sake of politeness, and I really do not like conflict, I just like to be happy.

He said "but don't you think that some kid could put a joint or something in the hole." I said "what's a joint" and was on my way into sunny CA.

    Re: 10 things
    Sorry peeps, i tried to narrow it down and 25 was the best i could do.

    1 I went to my first underground party at a HUGE warehouse in Queens NY in new years eve of 1994 and met my best friend Dave that day/night. We've been tight since.

    2 I have done lots of drugs of all kinds (no heroin) mostly at old school underground parties

    3 I joined the army in time of war (desert storm)

    4 I watched as all my friends turned into DJ's but somehow managed not to turn into one myself.

    5 i love to dance good Deep HOUSE and i am good at it.

    6 I am a religious pothead. In fact I have *fired* 3 of my nug dealers for being unreliable...No joke! They never saw another dime from me!

    7 Somehow i ended up with a high end tech job at a big Co. People think that i have a real job but i dont think so.

    8 I often give people the wrong impression of who i really am. This is not intentional.

    9 I like handguns and small arms, but i dont own any and I would never hurt a fly.

    10 I was born in the caribean

    11 I am often generous when i should be selfish and sometimes the other way around.

    12 I only say things that i think are important enough to be said. As a result, i am quiet most of the time.

    13 I dont care about cars or sports as much as other guys do.

    14 I enjoy ignoring the popular and conducting myself in unexpected ways.


    16 I never watch TV, its a waste of time.

    17 I am a morning person. I wake up much earlier than i have to because i absolutely hate rushing in the morning.

    18 I think slow drivers are the root of all road rage and should be fined accordingly.

    29 I love the sound of music soundtrack.

    20 I grew up in 3 different countries

    21 I think in 2 different languages

    22 Im one of the only straight guys i know who can have fun in a gay bar.

    23 The only big band i have seen live is U N D E R W O R L D and since that will never be topped, why bother trying.

    24 While some other men pay to get a hardon (Viagra) I'd pay to never have one again. (yes you read right and there is no typo) and no im not gay.

    25 I chose the red pill!
    (3/16/04 11:14 pm)
    Re: 10 things
    Sorry, but ten's an unlucky number for me, so I'll have to do thirteen.....

    1. I died when I was twelve, but woke up in the hospital where I stayed tied up to a medival toture device for nine more weeks, then tortured in physical therapy for the next year to learn to walk again. Decide then that life's only purpose was to gather memories that you can take with you when you begin your journey on the otherside.

    2. Became very rich at seventeen due to court settlement, got kickked out of highschool same year for selling LSD. (they said I was head of a drug ring, but really I was just having fun with my friends.) Went to an art school after that so it really was a blessing of some sort.

    3. Left collage less than a month to from graduation to find out what the real world looked like.Hitch hiked across the country six times to make sure I could remember what it looked like.

    4. Am still married (as far as I know) to my highscholl sweethart because I refuse to pay for the divorce again after giving her the money to take care of it. We havn't seen each other in over 10 yrs. She told me to go find myself, and I got lost somewhere along the way. OH Well....

    5. Discovered a group of people as lost as me (rainbow gatherings) and decided to hang out with them non stop for three or four years.

    6. The only time I'm really comfortable in a crowd is when my mind is so gone that everyone looks like they are held up by puppet strings. (actually, that's when I do my best vending.)

    7. Only saw Jerry play once(95), but have been a devoted Deadhead ever since.

    8. Only thing that keeps me from being lost now is my son.

    9. Drove a phsycadelic school bus across the country hoping to find my way home, got lost because the map was upside down.

    10. Am forever addicted to the yellow lines flashing by on the highway, only time I feel totally comfortable with my existence is when I'm travelling around the country aimlessly.

    11. Oh Ya, Me and my son (4 yrs old) are going on the road this summer to do an art project togethor cald "land that I love" a photo essay of all the great things we do when we get lost.

    12. My first memory as a kid (4 or 5issh) is hitchhiking through the desert with my dad, I think we were lost.

    13. I'm broke now, but not as broke as I've been before and I refuse work more than I have to. Amazingly, every time I need money, it manifest itself somehow. When it comes to understanding finances, I am lost.

    (3/17/04 3:48 pm)
    Re: 10 things Okay so...
    1. I am a 23 yr old married female.
    2. I LOVE the ocean, and the way the waves tickle my toes.
    3. I am pregnant and think that it is one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever been through.
    4. Non family related, I have loved three men very deeply throughougt my life.
    5. Only one of them has truly loved me in return.
    6. Magick facinates me, I would like to know more about it.
    7. I think that old men are so cute (like teddy bears).
    8. I rarely get a hangover.
    9. Sometimes I am dissapointed over how small the world really is.
    10. But then I think of all there is that is other than this world and I am blown away.

    he dont want boners no more, cause sumtimes they arrise unexpectidly, and maybe he likes hangin out in gay bars ,but he keeps gettin an unexpected bone everythime hes their . now everyones thinkin hes a raging flamer. walkin around a gay bar with a boner.

    wait.. he does rage the flame so he is a raging flamer, WAIT your all raging flamers.

    im outta here,.

    Re: 10 things oh oh..

    peeps, dont take it the wrong way k.. i was just pissed at my now ex girfriend when i wrote that.

    and about the gay bar,.. i have been in the past long ago and had a decent time (without a hardon!)

    If gay means that you are sexually attracted to people of the same gender as you then i dont qualify to be gay. I am not attracted to men in the least bit. And you are right, there is nothing wrong with being gay. so there is no reason to deny it if you are anymore.

    If gay means you like to dance and you have a best friend and you like a place without the meat market feel to it .. well, then i guess im gay.

    make your own judgement.

    i didn't mean to start any confusion... despite the impression, there is no confusion here.

    hope this helps.

    10 things--

    1. I am married to my Jr. High, High School and College sweetheart. (no I don't have three wives )

    2. I love energy healing, meditation, Astral Travel and most New Age things.

    3. I am into most outdoor sports, but mostly hiking, whitewater kayaking and rafting. I used to be really into rock climbing. I downhill ski quit a bit (the ski resort is 15 minutes from here).

    4. I am a pretty decent slackliner. (my record is 33 times back and forth across a 45 ft line- and then a friends kid came over and I lost my concentration)

    5. I am an environmentalist and consider the well being of our environment a major concern.

    6. I am lazy

    7. I am not afraid to die (I do it every night), but I am afraid of missing out on the rest of this particular life.

    8. I play the didjeridoo

    9. I like Texas Hold'em poker

    10. I've learned that the best way to get a deal at a bar in a foreign country is to say that you are a Grad student at Stanford and as your final project (thesis) you have decided to write a guide book about bars and nightclubs of the particular country you are in. Of course you can't afford to pay at all of the places you have to go to. Believe me...every bar owner wants to be in a guide book so you will get free drinks all night. Just be sure to skip out before he starts asking too many questions.

    This is fun

    4 I am a recovering crystal meth addict (2 yrs 1 month 9 hrs 8 min and 37 seconds)

    5 I have sole custody of my son who is 12

    6 I met my girlfriend of a yr and a half online(not thru a dating site) and have been looking at rings

    7 If I don't get enough coffee in my system I am NO fun (prolly something to do with the ol meth thing)

    8 I used to spend a great deal of time seeking the approval of others because I didn't approve of myself

    9 I am closing on a house

    10 I am opening a school in a warehouse space in the late spring. If I'm lucky maybe some of the kind folks at this forum will come thru for guest spots and teach. Hell; maybe some of the newbies will even take classes from me

    Okay, I'll do ten more if that is allowed (I am trying to avoid cleaning the house).

    1. I understand that it is better to keep my mouth shut and let people think that I am stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

    2. But that doesn't stop me from opening it.

    3. I have been collecting and reading Louis L'Amour books since gradeschool. I finally bought the last one about 3 months ago. I think I have like 130 or 140 of them. They're all the same after a while. "Cowboy fights outlaws and wins girl in the midst of it all". But damn, I just like them.

    4. My wife is way smarter than I am. I think she got straight A's from kindergarten through college with the exception of 2 or 3 B's.

    5. As a result, she is my sugar momma and I blow glass.

    6. I love hammocks, but I don't have a nice one (I only have a small backpacking one).

    7. I know just enough about mixed martial arts to get my assed kick in a fight. You know what I mean. The guy that pulls out his sick moves, but gets his head punched in in the mean time. But luckily I'm not a fighter. I'd rather talk myself out of it anyday. Or just let people think I'm a pussy. My face is too pretty to get F'd up over some drunk ass.

    8. My last job was extremely interesting. I was in Crisis Intervention and Transporting. In fact I may have taken some of you younger folks to a program. Basically I showed up in a kids bedroom at about 3 am, woke him up and took him to a program (rehab, boarding school, desert boot camp, pych hospital, etc.). I have been in many fights (me restraining them, and them trying to kill me) because of this job. And let me just say that there are some big strong 17 year old kids out there. Especially when they are still high when you show up. I traveled all over North America for this. But I had to quit. It was too hard when I had to take someone somewhere that I didn't think really needed to go. Some of the parents were the ones that needed to go instead of the kid. (the worst was when kids got sent away for a year because the parents found a joint) But some kids really really did need the help.

    9. Napolean Dynomite is exactly what my school was like.

    10. I used to do a lot of things really well. Now I just talk about how cool I was.

    Now I am going to have to find something else to do to avoid cleaning the house (I told you I'm lazy)

    hmmmm i guess ill try

    1.there are 2 of us, jeff and cristi, when we met, jeff was engaged. now we are married to each other....

    2.because nobody likes either of us

    3.we have 2 kids, ( 4 and 1) both of wich skateboard...the baby's just learning...we do too, and a bullmastiff named miss bella (yea were dorks)

    4.we're 25 and 24, both used to be fiends as well(no, not while we had the children). now were vegan (fuckin vegetarians) and so are our kids...and yes we ARE all very healthy. except jeff because hes a smoker

    5. the 4 yr old is not jeff's kid but his dad decided hed rather be a stupid hippie instead of a father so he became jeff's

    6. we're not hippies, but i will admit that i used to do tour (sweetpea)... we were, however, both squatters for years (until the cops threatened to take the kid).

    7. cristi quit smoking after 14 years of smoking a pack a day (yea, i started lots of things at a very young age)....its been almost 5 months...yeah!!!

    8. we are homeschoolers(montessori style) because we are both poster children for the evils of the public schooling system (very high iq's very low grades) and believe that public schools focus on very few skills, mainly taking tests and memorization, instead of exposing children to a multitude of skills to find out what they are good at

    9. one time i got into a fight with sol in santa cruz and threw all of his stuff out of the van like the emotional woman i was at the time (my sons dad just left me). we love him though, even though he is a hippie, and he taught us how to play with glass....weve only been doin it for like 6 months...

    10. if you want to get rid of us, put the dead or phish in and we will clear the room quickly(i guess we just overkilled it as kids.) we do love music though. mostly hiphop, punk and reggae. or start talking about religion. we are both very spiritual, but have a problem with organized religion

    ok now im done.....

    1) Name's Jim

    2) Very laid back semi-recluse & generally happy to just stay in my own world most of the time

    3) Did 4yrs hard time in the USAF, but @least they let me hang out in Germany the whole time (w/o wars & hostile assignments to worry about) done w/ that mess since 2000

    4) Married to my highschool sweetheart since Dec 2003

    5) own a TV but never use it. Overcame that addiction late 2003. am so much happier without my daily programming & have so much more time

    6) have 3 dogs, all shetland sheep dogs; no kids

    7) Have a "real" job as a tech at a motorola repair shop. Wish I didn't have to pimp myself out to da man but unfortunately, @this stage in my life, I see no alternative. Current deal's 10hrs of my life per weekday in return for keepin the mortgage paid & my glass studio (workshop) growing

    8) spiritually oriented, religiously repulsed, don't believe in imposing views on others

    9) college (physics major) dropout w/ 2 semesters to go, but not before taking an offhand glass class which got me looking into lampworking (thought of glassin @home, a dream realized in 2004)

    10) Never met another lampworker, but that'll change this august @AGI06!!!

    It will be hard to do this without mixing up Andy and my stuff...

    1a. I lived in 8 different places before out of high school cause my mom got married and divorced a lot.
    1b. Andy on the other hand lived in the same town until he left home.

    2a. I have a wicked step mother that regularly makes me feel like a pile of shit even though I try to convince myself that I am a grown up now.
    2b. Andy's parents were divorced and then re married...

    3a. I used to write (have been published), paint, sculpt & draw constantly. Went to college with a major in creative writing and a minor in art.
    3b. Now I do none of that and Andy blows glass....

    4a. I am very sarcastic, but hold my tongue a lot cause I don't want people to take me wrong. Especially on the internet cause you can't see my grins!
    4b. Andy takes me wrong a lot....I'm good at hurting his feelings...

    5a. I love traveling and road tripping have been doing it since I was little
    5b. When I met Andy he had never left Minnesota

    6a. I am often hard on myself and dislike myself, but I know what I need to change and am just to lazy to do it
    6b. Andy just tells me he loves me how I am. (I tell him to stop being selfish, it's not about you )

    7. Andy and I were neighbors in Minneapolis for over a year before we met. I met his roomates before him cause in his mind he didn't need any more friends. We lived together ever since.

    8. Andy and I were together for 7 years and 2 children before we got married.

    9a. I grew up with a mom who only listened to show tunes. So technically I have only been listening to good music since college....therefore I can not name anyone, any song name, any album name and sometimes any band name.
    9b. Andy's dad has been in the same band for 20 years and used to wake Andy up at 3 in the morning and make him go in the basement and listen/play music/guitar. Andy has played guitar for 14 years, his brother plays guitar and his dad still plays guitar. Andy names all the people, bands, albums, songs for me

    10. My desk is a mess, my house is a mess, my brain is often a mess, my basement is a mess and my garage is a mess. But I am sitting on this computer typing this instead of cleaning any of that. The mess drives me absolutely crazy, yet I do nothing about it (maybe I just need a psychiatrist instead of a be continued)

    I guess Ill update my 10 things list, so here goes:

    1) I like to drink ayahuasca in the amazonian rainforest with my teacher and good Friend Juan. I drink it for the science of it and for the healing it provides.

    2)I love to play with yo yos.

    3)I can solve the rubiks cube in less than 2 minutes.

    4)I own a cruiser bucycle with ape-hanger handlebars and a three speed internal gear hub. It has an old school roller brake as well.

    5)I can tie a cherry stem into a knot with my tounge.

    6)I think I have found my soulmate.

    7)I have been witness to a real live exorcism.

    8)I've killed a chicken with my bare hands, and then ate it after it was cooked.

    9)I like to go to ragga-jungle and drum'n'bass events.

    10)I have had more than one out of body experience.
