Guess who is at this very moment finishing off a 22 oz container of Rice Pudding? With LOTS and LOTS of cinnamon?

Oh yeah. The answer to that would be me--a very happy Chimera.  ;D

$35 to renew a car registration every year in Ohio.  When I compare that to Utah I want to weep for joy, plus no annual safety check and e-check to pay for (not in our county anyway).

I was searching for something and came across some fun old threads, including an old Geek Girl (that I hadn't read and made me laugh--both the article and forum comments) and one of my own threads. I was touched by how nice everyone was to me on the "Kidnapped by Hippies" thread.

I have to say that I am happy and grateful for TWG! I'm glad I came back. I have a lot of friends on here and I appreciate all of you.  /mushy stuff

(On another note: Man, I need to get back onto a healthy diet. The hippie thread reminded me of that. It's time to recommit myself. Diet really affects my health, and I have to remember that, and actually live it.)

Well if you think about it it's kinda hard to be humble when your considered god by several thousand (million? billion?) Ninja Monkey Assassin Priests.

I went to "The Garden of the Gods" today. Very cool place. Though I didn't see E there, or any of his ninja monkey assassin priests. I guess it is only for "real" diety. Anyways, the family had lots of fun.

Of course you didn't see any of my ninjas. That's the *point*.

Any god who is a real god, shows off at the Garden of the Gods. Having hidden ninja monkeys at the Garden of the Gods would only be done by fake gods.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

It's funny that you, a mere lawyer, mired in the minutiae of mundania pretend to understand the ways of gods.

Those gods who show off at the Garden of Gods are the gods who lack the power to do anything significant. They're just media whores.
