I'd drive the Hummer but make some serious fuel saving modifications... like putting in a 350ci Chevrolet engine or something. They still have a long way to go in making energy efficient cars like the Prius an attractive option... they seem intent on always making them unsexy, as well as relatively powerless, to prove how earnest they are about being green. What they could (and might eventually) do, if traffic congestion is a problem in a city, is to let people hire them for within city zones to get around in and let no other vehicles in there. This would get people used to them, and alleviate the uncool stigma of using/owning them.

I saw a doco a few days ago on the Italian APE trucks and was pretty impressed though. They were originally based on a three-wheel Vespa frame. http://www.barganews.com/people/ape/ I have vague memories of seeing similar 3-wheeled milktruck vehicles as a child in Spain.

Ever cuckolded one of your 'friends' good and proper? If yes, you qualify for the question: How did it feel? Provide suitable details...

No. I'm male.

Have you ever been in prison? If so, why?
It’s such a shame you had to break the heart you could have counted on

VG, Are you saying I misused the word? Presumably a female would need someone to do cuckolding with I thought.

I went to a prison, because it was for a 5th class excursion. It was Fort Denison, a small convict prison within Sydney Harbour surrounded by water. There are several convict prisons in New South Wales, and there's a fine exhibition about Australia's convict past at Hyde Park Barracks, minutes from the CBD.

What has been a proud accomplishment for you in an artistic sense?

well, I have a large crush on several celebrities, but I don't think anything could entice me to marry again. Once IS enough.

Cars scare me.

Just to clarify: Bambi did use the word "cuckold" correctly, if we're talking about a guy friend. Strangely enough, there's no word that means "a deceived woman"...Oh, patriarchy...

This one is for the ladies: how do you feel about your period?

HEY!!! I was gonna say that!!

just for you, OS--and humblest apologies to Dr. Seuss

I would not marry Kevin Klein
Iwould not marry sweet John Prine
I would not marry Kevin Costner,
Mickey Rourke or even bobster
I would not marry suave Nick Lowe
Elvis C or Manilow*
Not again, not in this life
for truth to tell I need a wife!

and to answer Miss BA's question: you know that friend you have, that you really aren't friends with anymore, but you still hang around because you're forced to be together? that's how I feel about my period. It's kind of outlived its usefulness.


What's the best lie you ever told?

Once, in 3rd Grade. We had a practice test in class that was exactly the same as the actual test, so I kept a copy of the completed practice test.

I got caught, and never tried it again.

Although the fire alarm rang during our 10th grade Science exam, so in discussing the exam and its answers we all cheated collectively I suppose.

Any special plans for this summer?

I hoped it wouldn't happen...it did...I fell into the candle trap, and now own one. I made sure that it does smell though, it honestly does...and it isn't there for effect, in the 'smart-arsed bourgeois presenter telling the middle-class mums that it's the new chintz' way.

MOODY!

i LOVED your poem.

so, pfffft on anyone who causes mood to be unhappy that she posted it.


i have tons of candles.

i want my period to go away forever. it is unnecessary - i shall not procreate.

there ain't no celebrity i'd want to marry, though i wouldn't mind some of their money.

and my daddy worked on the railroad.

NOW Y'ALL PLAY NICE!

:) love and hugs, your poppet.

Aliens have already visited Earth in the form of my high school physics teacher, Al Cram. He was an okay guy, so I'd feel fine about having more of them visit.

Now, about the period question, I always welcomed it as a sign that I wasn't accidentally pregnant. Now that the only person I'm doing it with has been surgically rendered sterile, it's not such a big thrill.

Have you ever written a check knowing it would bounce?

No I have not written a check knowing it would bounce but my ex-wife has on our joint account. Long story.. really requires a long social setting with the beverage of your choice.
