mstpbound said...

how do you judge a guy based on his eyebrows? haha you should explain! :)

Silly Billy said...

Ok, I am exhausted now.

Funny, my NY accent rears its ugly head when I drink, although some people say I have when not drinking, but I disagree

I don't eat sweets either (though I do eat chocolate) and I have a terrible short term memory - could the two be related?

Anonymous said...

JUSTIN said...

I might have to save my eyes for my 200th post, (or get a better monitor).

I've worn that hat since the ill-fated 2003 Cubs season, and I'll wear it until my boys get to the playoffs again.

Of course we Latinos are too Caliente and sabroso not to be a sexy bunch.

Happy hundredth.

Total Neat freak huh? Would never have seen that one coming! Scarily my wardrobe is organised by colout too.

I know all about the glasses. In the morning it takes me a good 10 minutes finding them.

And for pete's sake why not have this 'tip' removed from your arm. And fuck do I know all about scars - I have about 5... only four are from my youth!
