Randomness was her name-o!

6 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME
1. I put alcohol in almost everything I cook, especially white wine.
2. I learned to swim when I was 1 and jumped into the deep end of a pool.
3. My first cat was a cowkitty named Jerry. Growing up, I thought Jerry was the name of cat instead of Tom.
4. I adore reading urban fantasy, which more often than not ends up shelved in romance because of publishers desire to sell even when it's the wrong genre . And no, that doesn't include the Anita Blake series. I like more plot, less porn please.
5. Growing up, I had a huge crush on JTT. JTT being Jonathon Taylor Thomas. Aka Randy from Home Improvement.
6. I collect anything with dragons, unicorns, bottle-nose dolphins and orcas on it. I always wear a dragon silver ring, in an effort to protect myself. Fire always facing out to the world.

You know, you sound a LOT like my cousin Dani - I bet if you met each other you'd hit it off really great. She loves to swim, loves cats, loves reading fantasy, I'm pretty sure she thought Jonathan Taylor Thomas was hot, and loves loves loves getting dragon/unicorn/dolphin stuff. She's also a big fan of daggers, swords - stuff from the old days, especially Japanese stuff. I would love to find an actually decent dragon statue - what I would really really love is to GET a awesome dragon tattoo on my arm. Of course, then I'd have to cut it off because no law firm would be very happy about hiring an attorney with a Japanese dragon covered arm. :) So blah.

*grins* I love to swim, but you know, I'm not one of those fat people that's all about swimsuits, so I miss it. It's really difficult for me to drown, I'm so buoyant. It's awesome. And I think everyone thought JTT was hot. I mean, come on. Okay, so he's a little funky looking now, but back in the day....yum. Speaking of, did you hear? Brad Renfro croaked.

I tend to not go around swords or daggers, but I really want to learn how to use daggers. Not for defense, but self-confidence.

You should try a new age store, most large cities have at least one. In Atlanta it's Phoenix and Dragon out on Roswell Rd. It's where I got my ring, pendant and earrings. (I prefer Celtic dragon design, myself.) If you can't get the tat on your arm, for obvious reasons, what about somewhere concealable?

Yep, heard Brad died - overdose, is what I heard. I'll never understand why so many young Hollywood actors use drugs. I get peer pressure, but geez, I've been offered everything, and I just don't have the slightest interest in trying it out. It's so out of my mind I'd never even consider it, like having sex with a donkey. You know it's done (sometimes, by strange people), but you'd never contemplate doing it.

You know, I never thought of checking out a new age store for dragon stuff - but now I will. :) As cool as learning how to use daggers sounds, I'd prefer something like kung fu - although I'm SO out of shape I'd kill myself trying to learn. :P

As for the tat, I guess I could get it on my back, but my current tat is already taking up substantial space on my spinal area, while my arm has absolutely nothing there. And also, a dragon wrapped around your arm seems SO much more aesthetically pleasing than on your back. But, well, we'll see.

Pug Mom, it's wild that so many die, isn't it? It's call "huh" inspiring, but I can see why they do. I mean, look at how the parents act, a la Joe Simpson, Lynne Spears, and Lohan's mom. It makes sense, really. With no reins, they do a lot of stupid stuff. Of course, I had such a childhood (minus the Hollywood bit) and I ended up being fairly normal. I've never had a drug, and I drink moderately with the ability to go months without having anything. I think we just have way more sense than these fools.

I would like to learn mostly because it'd be new ways my body could move. Of course, I really like wanna learn to use a chakra, but you know, I'd end up being in Jessie parts. New age stores tend to have a lot, especially if they've got some books on wicca and such. I got this beautiful piece of a dragon taking care of her baby and it plays music. Love that thing. And it's purple, which is like my color.

You could always get it on your leg, couldn't you? Like, have it wrap around your lower half? Or along the back of the calf? I've seen those around.

I think most celebrities have no excuse for their behavior - there are so many normal people who have had crazy childhoods, and problems beyond that of most actors, and they're not acting like Britney Spears. And there are a few celebrities who still manage to act normal and NICE, like Johnny Depp. The only other person I can possibly blame for bad celebrity behavior is the public - especially parapazzi and people from talk shows, media, etc. They facilitate this whole "You're the greatest person ever and we should put up with your BS!" idea. If someone just stood up to a celebrity and said, "Hey, you know what? I'm not getting you water from that one stream in Iceland, because you can't deign to drink normal bottled water," then maybe a lot more celebrities would start to act more humble. But that's my opinion (Yeah, you can tell I want to punch Paris, Lindsay, Britney, and all those other drama queens in the nose, dontcha? :)
As for the dragon tattoo on my leg, I'd never thought about putting it there, but it's a good idea. :) I'm contemplating going back to my tattoist and getting an extension of my current tattoo with blue, turquoise, and green flowers to balance out my orange, purple, and red ones. I'm so addicted :) But anyway, gots ta go. Toodles!

I think there are exceptions to the rules, though. Like the people who have celebrity-whore parents. Because think about it: if you're not even a teen, and your main parent is whoring you out so they can get famous, there's not much guidance on right and wrong. Hello Lou Perlman. Ya know? I mean, I'm still not convinced Lynn Spears didn't know what a leech he was, considering I saw him once and fled in terror. Combine that with a couple years later and you're in teenage years with the public watching every single thing you do...at that age when you tried to get into the business, no one explained what all you *really* signed up for. As much as I loathe Brit-Brit's actions, I can't blame her entirely. After all, her mom is the one that put her out there, we the public were the ones that put her up only to tear down a couple years later. I can't totally blame her. Much as I'd like to. Before we expect them to take responsibility, the other guilty parties have to admit to it, too.

Now one person I loathe fully on is Tyra Banks. Occasionally I'll be getting ready about 1, and her talkshow will be on. Added to that, ANTM and you've got a totally self-involved woman. If there was a drinking game to how many times she compared something to her life, you'd be passed out in ten minutes.

I don't have much excuse for Lohan and Paris, though. Well, Lohan gets more since she's been in the business half her life and we know what happens to child stars, but Paris is just trash. She purposely liked the attention Page Six and all the tabloids got her, so she created more buzz....without doing anything to earn it. Much like whatshisface, Firecrotch dude. I'd probably give Paris more leeway if I thought she was doing anything to enhance the world around her. Besides flashing her vagina, I mean. And that's another topic: looking at someone's coochie is NOT cute. I'm just saying.

There's a guy in my math class that has two tats on his legs, where they intertwine. One is a koi, and the other is a dragon. It's really quite well done. The balanced colors would good. The cool and warm colors.
