I am in a bit of a sharing mood and thought I need to open up a little more… The truth is once I gave up my anonymity I have felt a lot more restricted on the personal side of things. So I decided while listening to Dr. Dog’s new album that I am going to open up and tear down a bit of the wall I tend to keep up. Before that, just a quick mention of the new album from the wonderfully retro band Dr. Dog. Shame, Shame is pretty much awesome from beginning to end. A new producer and label has perhaps helped to refine their music, but at the same time still keeping the unique sound that is Dr. Dog. I am loving it. Now, five things you probably don’t know about me:

1. I have a hard time watching violence, even a gun shot can make my body squirm. Although I do see movies with violence, unnecessary violence like horror films… no way!

2. Only recently am I able to swallow 2 vitamins/pills at a time, I used to have to take them one at a time and I still only take them 2 at a time, too chicken to try 3.

3. I am a recovering addict. I am sure you all are racking your brains on what the addiction was but it is not really about what it was but more about what I have overcome, and that it is possible.

4.  I brake for all animals… Even insects. Truth be told I have actually stepped on the brakes for a butterfly.

5. Keeping with the same theme as #4… I try to put spiders outside rather then killing them. They are just lost.

    Even pieces of garbage in the side of the road get a gasp and covered eyes… ;)

    How do you swallow 2 vitamins/pills at a time?!?!?! Surely that’s just dangerous and a potential choking hazard?

    The older I get, the more I try not to kill spiders (even though my first reaction is to step on them and squish the leggy, house invading fuckers as fast as possible).

    Pip – If that’s Rachel covering her eyes, remind me never to accept a lift anywhere!

    HAHA “even though my first reaction is to step on them and squish the leggy, house invading fuckers as fast as possible” I love it. It is actually the first impulse but then when I actually go to kill them I feel so bad I just can’t bring myself to do it.

    You are too funny and I want to hear more. :-)

    You surely are a rockin person.

    Ive always had a soft spot for spiders, I have no idea why. I absolutely despise cockroaches! I’ll kill them immediately.
    That’s cool you wrote about overcoming your addiction, It was well put.
