    Me either. Being straight-edge has its advantages.

    No. I am stating that being the way I am is best for me. Yes, it has its advantages, but a lot of things--good or bad--do.

    Oh and incidentally, I don't smoke either. My father died from lung cancer, that was enough to encorage me against it. I do drink, but very, very rarely. I enjoy a glass of red wine now and again, as my doctor said that red wine was actually healthy in moderation.

    Wilder of course, I am one who loves the original, and Gene Wilder is one of my favorite actors. :)

    I am not a Johnny Depp fan at all ::ducks from the flying cheese that people might feel inclined to throw at me:: :D

    Lol... *slides down to the floor and ducks with Yva* I'm not a Johnny fan, either!

    That's so comforting to know. I have been in far too many places where I have seriously been outnumbered and figured that people thought I was too old to be a candidate for the super cool and groovy. :sing:

    Oh no, not at all! I think I've always been one who generally likes "uncool" things and dislikes the "cool" things. But I love being that way. After all, we all have our own personal super cool and groovy things in our lives! :D

    Exactly. I know many of my fellow fans have since moved on from the WWE business, but as a true fan, I respect the company for what it does & still enjoy it from time to time, despite problems that the company has had over the years.

    I am playing nice, I didn't throw any cheese back. I've got an even better idea...

    ::walks to Doc's house::
    ::knocks at door::

    Hi Doc, could I please borrow a custard cream pie from your stash?


    :: Doc brings a large white box::

    Thanks, I owe you!


    Mwahahahha, now look out, I have a pie and I'm not afraid to throw it. :D

    Of course, I am teasing, to each his/her own. But, it was fun to be a little fantasyful.
