I Think Too Much


I've been in an odd mood lately and I think too much. I sort of miss the old days when I silenced my churning mind with booze. To tell you the truth, I'm not really sure why I do this blog at times, but hell, it's cheaper than therapy, ya know. I guess I mainly do it to reach out and let people know that they are not the only one that's ever thought that thought or had that particular feeling. You know, you are not alone and all that bull shit...

Who The Fuck Am I?

wow...
that's an amazing post. Thank you so much for doing this...

Can I ask you a couple of Questions?
Green Thumb?
That means that you are not wearing underwear in most of the times (like when working), or are you always expecting things to happen?
Alligator?
Ghost?
Sex in a forest (or on a beach) is my all time favourites. I also do love VW Beatles

Hey Nik,
Good to hear fro you, buddy.

*There are 4 horticulturists in my immediate family,so yeah, I have a green thumb. Had my first garden by age 10 and took over the family's lawn care.

*I think I need to reword the statement about underwear: I should have said I only wear drawers when I absolutely know for sure that I'm going to get some. It's all about layers when someone is watching you undress,ya know.

*And yes, an alligator once lunged out of a little pond and came after me on this golf course on Bald Head Island when I drove by on my little golf cart. Scary ! I hate those fuckers !

*I hate to tell this story, because people always think you're one of those nuts you see on TV, but yes, I saw a ghost once. It happened in the early nineties when I'd first met Scott and decided to stay over one night. About 2 am I woke up and something was standing at the foot of the bed and it wasn't happy.To make a long story short, I closed my eyes and started praying real hard because I was scared and it left.The next morning I mentioned it to Scott and he nonchalantly said, "Oh, that's just Steve, he's pissed cause he's dead." It seems the ghost appeared to him and his roommate all the time and they had named him "Steve". LOL.
