    Yes, but seasonally. Black flies own the woods north of here for the next month or so! But we're into Cyp season!!!

    TPBM likes a good game of poker, even if he/she hasn't played one in a while.

    Nope, never played poker. Am not very good at any card games, and certainly cannot maintain a poker face.

    TPBM wants to pull a sickie at work today!

    Really want to, but can't cos we have compusory stuff that we have to go to. Also, the lectures are pretty important.

    Funnily enough, i woke up this morning with a sore throat and a back in total agony.

    TPBM loves full blown thunder storms that whip out of nowhere.

    Oh yeah, baby. We had a storm blow in last night (is it Summer yet?) and I was REALLY hoping for a bomber of a show.

    Total disappointment. Just rain (terribly needed) and a bunch of evil wind. 27+ mph predicted.

    The person below me has base jumped. (I live near Twin Falls where there is the only LEGAL bridge (Perine Bridge) in the US from which people can hurl themseves.)

    False, but I would love to do it! I was lucky enough to go to an amusement park in the very far north of Ohio and get on the world's highest (at the time) free-falling ride, 'the rip cord'. It is a machine where you get attached to a cable on the center of your back and lifted 150+ feet into the air. Once in position, you pull your own 'rip cord' and release yourself and free fall to within 6 or 8 feet of the ground. As the cable catches, you are swung out over the great lake and feel like superman! Just as you reach the point of zero gravity, you can turn your body and head back down towards earth again. I got up to over 60 mph on my 'swing'. It was knee shaking scary, but I loved it!!

    TPBM eats pineapple on her/his pizza.

    Cheers,
    BD

    False. I learned piano, flute, saxaphone and drums. I don't play any of them now.
