These are all pretty amazin, let me tell ya. My only, and persistent brush with fame is when I see my reflection every morning.

And Serenity, though I know and love that song...'I'm just a regular guy, with a regular job'...I'm gonna have to edit the title, unfortuned. I too am having difficulty with how to title that song without profanity, since such is integrated directly in the title.....oh well, nothing for it...can't be havin with double standards.

well, Pierre Trudue came to my high school and brushed by my outstretched hand.... damn..
I was on a music video with Roy Clark years ago... I was at the Toronto exibition and there was this big crowd so I barge my way through to see what was happening and came out of the front of the crowd and ended up standing beside him clapping and singing along to some song he was singing... and ended up on TV standing their looking kind of foolish...  

Well, I recited two poems here and all this probably equals my 15 minutes of fame... so all I can say serenity is would you like a brush with fame?

Music? Nifty... my best friend's dad has played with the Eagles, Eric Clapton, and instead of following Richard Palmer into his career, he married and had my best friend! Hehe...

now which was the better decision? Hmmmm...

~shakes head~ ~stares~ Xena is SHORT???

Speaking of music, I forgot that some friends of mine in school have a band, and one of their songs is on the movie "Dude, where's my car?". They're really good, can't wait until their album comes out in... march? I think so. So, yeah, I'm pretty sure that's all.

....peace as a primary objective is dangerous because it implies that we would sacrifice anything for the sake of it....

When they were picking heights Xena kinda missed out...

after all..she is ONLY a Warrior Princess..technically that came under the category of Substantially Tall in the Mythical/Legend Production Line...UNFORTUNATELY the minion in charge failed to note the word WARRIOR in front of Princess (it was written in terrible hand writing apparently - so my sources say) and well...only princess was noted...

Sadly...the end result was a height more suited to a dainty kiss-a-frog, find-a-prince type princess.

Xena makes up for it with all the leather yanno...those boots are GREAT for false impressions.

Sad really isn't it?

K, what I don't understand is, if Xena is short, then what is Gabrielle, a foot stool???
She like only comes up to Xena's shoulder's, right?
*giggling* Imagine how fast her legs would have to move!

“Hi, I’m Lucy Lawless”

“Oh, wow, nice to meet you!”

“I’m Renee O’ Conner!”

“Where’d that voice come from???”

*looks down* “Oh. Uhm, hi…
*ahem* Uhm, can you lead to the pot of gold???”

*kick!* "OW!"


hehehe Beware of Xena, and her allies the little people...

Me, not believe he's a jerk?
~throws head back and begins laughing~
~wipes tears out of eyes~

... sorry, where was I? Oh, huge sticks...

Yeah, I hear he got a beating, though I don't think it was as brutal as deserved... by FAR...
so maybe we can corner him in a dark Alley or something (then have Xena kiss his wounds)...
hmmmmmmm ~looks around~ ~tucks baseball bat behind her back~
Oh Chrys...uhm...Chrysakdvdnfdlk? Chrys for short, then.. Oh, ChryYYyyys!

THERE HE IS!!! *WHACK!!!* Oh no! A Member of 98 degrees! How did I ever make the mistake???

I met these two girls who liked to pick on me a lot. They were famous because they ended up becoming victims of a notorious and brutal revenge plot...

*scoffs* Didn't anyone ever tell you that one can't take revenge on a Pisces? Just doesn’t work… rule of nature. Sorry.
Besides, we’re much more clever than you are.
