I know two people who have been on reality TV shows and I can tear a phone book in half with my bare hands.

That song was from Cinderella originally. I have no idea if it was reprised in Bedknobs, though.

I also went to 1st and 2nd grade with Arlo Guthrie's daughter Cathy in a little town called Beckett Mass. My dad used to hang out with him on Sundays in a little tavern called the Vagabond while my brother and I played pinball and space invaders.

I once stayed in a hotel at the same time as Gregg Allman, and met him.

I attended the same high school as Don Adams' children - but they were gone before I got there.

I taught at the same high school Martin Lawrence attended - but he was gone before I got there.

One of my former students has performed on Broadway - but I taught math, not theater.

I have been spending the last week or so building a shed in my back yard. Vinyl siding and all. It's 10 x 12 feet with a skylight.

I just finished building my new back deck.

I am going on vacation to Colorado Springs tomorrow, and I am taking a kilt.

I like cheesy vampyre novels.

I'm completely and utterly bored so I'll post another one.
My name is Wesley and I'm addicted to Toyota Land Cruisers.
I have 5 Toyota Land Cruisers.... I need help. Or a better savings plan either one..

sigh... I had a vastectomy in 1994. (I was not so excited about my faith then as I am now.)

But had I known the long-term detriment it would have to my marriage, I would have listened to the Pope more closely. (twice in my life, I thought I was smarter than the Pope. I was wrong both times)

Anyhow.... that's boring details about me.

I hope your experience is much better.

I have only ridden one roller coaster in my life. I was in Utah, on a mission trip with my youth group, the summer after my senior year of high school.
