3. I would use so much hairspray you could cut yourself on my hair, yet by second period it was always completely fucked up.
4. I had three girlfriends in High school Gina Shioji, Cathy Gates, and Keri Rhiba. I’m pretty sure Gina is a lesbian, Cathy is married in the midwest and Keri’s sister, Susan is one of the few people who snubbed me when I came out.

Oh my, you're a baby. During the LA riots (assuming the King riots) I was patrolling the streets of Long Beach.

DAMN, I am old!

I was my Senior year at Long Beach Poly. A riot broke out inside the school and the vice principal jaw was broken when she tried to stop a fight. we were all surprised we weren't sent home earlier.

At Thirty I'll take that baby comment as a compliment and frame it! You are not old! Old people don't have as many adventures and fun as you. you aren't going to be old for quite a long time!

"2. I wish I was the Dali Llama"

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama was at my Uni today and I attended his lecture on "Compassion: The Source of Happiness"

He's a really cool, down to earth guy who you would just want to hug if you saw on the street, and he loves throwing around puns.

It's great just how it doesn't feel like you're around someone "important" - he's just himself, another human, and treats you with complete equality.

BTW, nekkid picture? lol
