#2....

Guns and gun nuts and Jessie Jackson just don't get along....

damn 60 sec rule

Bing we have a winner!. It was the G-7 Summit of Industrialized Nations at Rice University in Houston under Bush One. Jessie and I stayed at the same hotel, the Astroworld Hotel, in Houston TX - July or Aug of 1990 I think. That was our only connection. We were two doors down from each other. But I was working for the man then. Protecting Bush, Thatcher, Kohl...et. al. My job was to be a human bomb sniffing dog. I searched several places where the leaders of the free world congregated. Heady stuff to a young man.

As a side note I have heard Mr. Jackson speak several times in person. I've always considered it a shame he didn't invest that considerable talent and intellect into a real dialog on race.

My wife has four degrees in Geog. (One BA, One MA ) - Indian (One MS and Ph.D.) - US. Me - BS,MA

And the linage thing is correct. My family was an early adpopter of a middle name. Not common that far back.

Only cause you asked.

1. I was once a registered Democrat.
2. I have a complete place setting from a Nazi Luftwaffe mess-circa 1943.
3. My wife had to push start our car five times on our honeymoon because the starter went out the day of the wedding.

Ok...

1) I was once detained in an airport for being a smart-ass and giving security officer lip.

2) I got a concussion from pretending to be a bull and running into a tree directly behind my friend who was holding up a red towel.

3) On my first date with my current boyfriend I purposely slid down a two-story staircase rail, but couldn't land the ending and face planted on the sidewalk. I was then taken to the emergency room.

I think #2 is a lie.

My dad who is a staunch republican, is currently registered democrat so he can try to oust people during the primaries.

El Guapo, you're right. I figured I'd been pegged as a redneck (not that I mind that!) and ya'll would think I'd always been here, but I went to college in New England.

No pegging here. I see you as quite cosmopolitan.

We have a winner. I registered Democrat to help a very nice democrat that I was good friends with and admired retain her seat in the Kansas House. Then I swithced back after the primary. 1992. It was a squeaker.

I do own a Nazi fork that I found digging up some old ammo in Germany. Nothing special. I'm not into those things, but I can see how some would assoiciate that with conservatives.

And yes, because my wife couln't drive a stick she had to push when the starter went out.

I'm out of lies...well except one really good one. ;)

Definitely the lie. I think it was because you gave him the tongue.

Nerudite - All Lies and propaganda, but if I'm picking one it will be 3.

You are the first to guess... and the first to be right. I must really suck at this game! (or you are too smart for your own good)...

3) On my first date with my current boyfriend I purposely slid down a two-story staircase rail, but couldn't land the ending and face planted on the sidewalk. I was then taken to the emergency room.

In reality, it was just about one story in height, and although bruised up, I didn't have to go to the emergency room. I've slid down that stupid rail since and landed it just fine... it was just because I went down too fast sitting on a slick raincoat the first time and had a little too much momentum. He liked me anyway.

I'm guessing #2 is a lie. I'm intrigued nonetheless!

haha 'bout the Janets-


1. True- my brother was adopted by another family and I met him for the first time when I was 16.
2. True, we didn't know if we were going to be able to leave and our guides had to get us onto a train to Moscow in the middle of the night and try to get us out of the country- we left right before the Lenin statue came down.
3. LIE. I grew up for the most part in Coral Springs, Florida. My Mom was a planner there until I was 17- then we moved back to Texas.
