    I just returned a rental car with several hundred dollars in accident damage and they didnt notice and signed off on the intake. This was after I ripped off all of the plastic trim so the whole car matched its "new" front... (whew!)

    Whew! That could have been way worse.

    I am borderline obsessive about vacuuming and cleaning the interior of my car. I probably vacuum 1-2 times per month and use leather conditioner 3-4 timer per year. I hate having anything in my car (papers, beverage containers, etc). and this includes the trunk I keep a couple of Swiffer dust rags in my car too because I can't stand having dust on the dashboard.

    Funny thing is, my apartment is in a constant state of disarray and is rarely clean.

    I like the Spice Girls.

    I killed two baby Robins when I was four years old.

    where is the story behind that one?
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    This will play into Seabishop's prejudices, but I sometimes allow my dogs to "visit" a nearby trash-filled vacant lot. I figure their "production" is less noxious than the fast food containers and cups dropped by the obnoxious local hellions. (The local high school is going "closed campus" soon-no more litter patrol! )

    I don't particularly like children. Indifference may be a better word.

    I/we are not real good about landscape maintenance at my condo complex. I forgot to turn the irrigation on this morning.

    a few more come to mind:
    -
    I don't particularly like children
    I second that
    -The name changes in the forum still confuse me.. Anybody mind sending me a PM with a practical chart withe the new and old names for better identification

    hmm I tend to be quite honest (or at least I don't remember my lies) so I doubt I have any more confessions... plus I'm a 'little' younger than most of the others here :P

    I must agree, they do look cute and manipulative. Mine are the same way.

    Are they Portugese Water Dogs? I have always wanted one or a puli, but my husband doesn't like them that much. I do love my Staffie bull terriers though.

    Sure, because they "tell" you things...

    I probably risk any future FAICP nomination for this one, but here goes. I do not keep my old copies of Planning Magazine in hermetically-sealed archival plastic bags. I have occassionally clipped an article for future reference, but the rest of the magazine gets recycled.

    There. It feels better to get that off my chest.

    Yuppers! Got Bailey as a puppy in Colorado, and Guinness through PWD Rescue in Palm Beach County. Despite the breed's name, my pooches don't like to swim. Bailey will run into the water, but walk on her hind legs when she gets into an area that's deep. Guinness avoids H20 altogether. Go figure.



    Seabishop ... Guinness wants a kiss! He's such a slobberpuss. C 'mon ... give Guinness a kissie-poo ...

    Especially PWDs ... they have a multi-octave voice. They tend to chortle and mumble, much like Basenjis, but they also have strange multi-pitch barks.

    My next door neighbor, though, has a dog that will mumble back to you if you mumble to it; she'll actually have a conversation with you! The dog is actually trained to say "I love you," but it sounds more like "rii raa ooo." Cute.

    Anyone hear the "Confession Line" segment on NPR's "This American Life" a few years ago? I think this is one of the most memorable things I've ever heard on that show. Some man set up a telephone line where people could call in, anonymously, and confess things to get them off their chests. The stories people told were absolutely amazing. Before the line was shut-down after a few months, a few people had confessed to accidental deaths, unsolved murders, stealing from charities, etc - it was pretty disturbing.

    My dog Harry talks as well. Sometimes, he wonít shut up because he is telling you so much. He loves to wag his tail, wink and talk to you at the same time. He is so cute that when he does this you canít help but listen. My other dog, Tina, chirps like a bird. She sounds so much like a pterodactyl (or at least what I imagine one to sound like).

    I was a terrible foreign exchange student. This one still gives me pangs of guilt, even though it was more than 10 years ago, I still think about it frequently, just before I'm falling asleep and feel really bad about it. I was homesick all the time, spent half my time with American students, speaking English, rarely went to school, instead skipping to go hang out in the city park or somewhere else in Madrid. Lied to my host parents about having boys over when they were gone. One of the most amazing experiences of my life, but also one of the most miserable.

    My wedding ring is a fake.

    It looks absolutely fabulous. We bought the ring itself from a pawn shop 4mm comfort fit gold band.
    The stone is 1 1/2 carat cushion cut Mosanite and it is set in a tall tulip head of white gold. Compares to an $8000 rings that I was looking at.

    Total price $500.

    I swore I would not tell anyone but the Mosanite is wearing so well and is so beautiful everyday. They say that jewelers can't tell the difference.
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    So is my engagement ring; however, no one knows it. I tell people that this ring is just keeping my finger warm until I get my real ring, which is true.

    When we were getting our wedding rings engraved, I wanted mine to read: "If found, please return to......."

    My wife failed to see the humor in that.

    okay, that is funny. If it would fit I'd put "you give me packman fever- amah amah amah" on James' ring.
