"Who is danzig138? He seems like a totally awesome guy, so smart and clever, and cool as can be, but what do I really know about him? How can I aspire to be more like him if I know nothing of him?"

MOST OFTEN USED EXPRESSIONS: Throw a bunch of curse words together and you have it, "Will you kids PLEASE be quite for a minute?", "What'd I do?", "Shhh. X-Files.", "If I only talked when people asked me questions, I'd never say anything.", "Quit screaming, jeez."
Years ago, we got a boxer/beagle puppy. Since then, "You stupid m*$%!r f&*$%(* dog!" has become a common expression of mine. We had a second dog , named Jayne, the Big Damned Dog. He was as dumb as a rock and lovable. Unfortunately, he was crazy from the time before we got him, and he attacked my son (four tooth holes in his head) so we had to have him killed.
With the cancellation of Joss Whedon's Firefly, another common expression has become "That's still on?" when I'm passing pretty much any program I can't stand, like any reality show, or Dawson's Creek (I have to amend this - I caught hooked on Dawson's Creek when it was on TBS every freaking day, and now I'm looking to get it on DVD).
OCCUPATION: "Homemaker" is what I put on forms. I don't get paid enough for what I do. For those interested. I'm also ordained. So you can call me Reverend. I've had some work published, so I'd like to think I can now add part-time semi-professional writer guy.
