HA ha ha- that's the story of my life. I actually made a good friend after offending him with my drawings on the subject. I explained my reasoning and we have been chums ever since cos he knows I'm not a playa hater.

Hmmm . . . according to a Google search, your middle name means "glorious forest." 8)
When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look, but it was gone. I cannot put my finger on it now. The child is grown; the dream is gone. And I have become comfortably numb.

Personally, I'd mix it and go with "A glorious forest, ready for battle" and claim that your parents were far, far too into Tolkien for their own good. :P

My tipping theory goes like this - An extra few bucks is practically meaningless to me. If I lost that money from my wallet, I probably wouldn't care. But an extra few bucks on my tip can actually make someone's day. And that's a pretty small cost for a great feeling.

So when I get good service, I tip heavily. I make it a point to explain to a server what service I expect at the start of a meal. If I get it, they get 20%. If I get MORE, they can earn up to 50%. I have on a couple occasions tipped over 100% for someone who makes me the focal point of their lives for that meal. If I get less, I'll tip as low as 10%. And if I get crappy service, I leave a single coin. That way they can't hide behind the thought that maybe I forgot to tip them.

Back in Cleveland, the local steak shop knew me so well they would pull me out of line ahead of two hours of other patrons and make sure I got a table, because they knew with certainty if they did a damn good job, I'd make their night.

Two restaurants here in St. Louis know me that way now. A steak and shake Beth and I go to often, and the local steak joint.

Something you didn't know about the Mooman:

Back when I started to get facial hair (when I was 14 or 15) I rather stupidly thought "Hmm, I wonder what I'd look like with a moustache! Or a goatee!!!" and so I made the monumentous decision to not shave the front of my face, just the neck and sides (under my precious sideburns). I did this for ages in the vain hope that something would sprout and I would look awesome.
Of course, nothing happened, except for some reason the hair on my neck would grow in quicker. I wonder why. So now, my facial hair grows at two different speeds.

And I still want to know how I'd look with a moustache...
What a rubbish signature.

Was it your garbage can? Because that isn't nearly as gross.

Did you just find something tasty off the top, or actually digg, come up with some bits of food, and hungrily eaten them?
It was my kitchen garbage can. I had to dig for that pizza crust, and it was worth it. I wouldn't eat out of a public one unless I saw someone throw it out first.

One time, in highschool, Maria ate something that had crusted onto a cafeteria table with a fork that had been left there by someone else, all for a dollar. It was a matter of pride. Pride and a dollar.

1) My real name is not even close to Kris.

2) I'm 5'3" and proud to be pale.

3) I'm bisexual, but love the males most of all. (Some credit for that given to CJ and Pimpette)

I have a fascination with nazi doctors. I've done 4 papers on it, 2 presentations, all different material and facts and all about 95%. I've read every bit of info I can find on them, the things that inspired them(including 1920-1930's experiments in various medical practices), what happened after them, and the experiments and methods and their worth to the medical community.

I started reading when I was ....3. By the time I was 7 I was reading at a college level. Now, I read about the human psyche, what powers the human psyche chemically, health and the drugs and herbal remedies and how they affect the body, marketing business strategies, what science I can understand.


I have a fascination with dead things and what most consider grotesque.



I. Really. Hate. BABIES.


hm.

I've read over 50% of the fiction section in two different good sized libraries and 25% of each of said libraries' non fiction sections.

I never buy books.

I love figure skating. It's soooo pretty....*cough* Well, it is! :oops:

I have often wondered, though, what would happen if we had gladatorial style figure skating inside wone of those motorcycling spheres...with, like, Ben Hurr style pointy things on the skates and stuff.
