    What's your favorite season, and why? As I'm walking to work this morning, I notice the air is getting cooler and crisper. The scent on the gentle breeze blowing reminds me of every other Fall past. Goddamn I love Fall. I love the smells, I love the cool air, I love the crispness in the air...

    Spiders and getting rid of them

    Okay, first off let me say that spiders don't really bother me per se. I have no issue with them, I don't get squeamish, I don't scream and run. Usually, I just ignore them. I don't even bother killing them. They can actually help keep down other bugs in the home. However! My place has...

    Freezing Corn

    Doing things by yourself

    So, I'm a bit of a loner. I require time to myself or else I go nutso and turn into the super bitch from hell. As my mom says, I "enjoy my own company". :lol: I fully understand that other people require being around other people in order to 'have fun', or whatever. Hey, we're all different...

    Sexy male body parts

    Inspired by another thread where people insisted that men's chests weren't "sexual" yet women's were, I decided to put it to a vote. Because personally... I find men's chests to be one of - if not THE - most sexually appealing body part. Now, don't say "brains", I didn't make that an option...

    WoW Mods

    Okay all you WoW players, what mods do you find indispensable? Particularly class-based mods, since I'm leveling a hunter, warlock and mage. For me, Auctioneer is a must have. As well as a mod that remembers all the nodes that I've gathered (like Gatherer or Carbonite) I've also come to rely...
