Made a vid about life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVKFL0ImCl8 :shock: Apparently the whole point of life is to become a sacrifice on top of a Mayan pyramid. And then she plays that song by Linkin' Park: "We're building it up/ To break it back down." You guys can call me crazy, but I associated...

Has someone's cheese slipped off their cracker? Trixie eats her peanut butter crackers, not cheese. ... Impenitent - Words to live by. Far too much time is spent on spelling.

Re: Hello from the United States.

For this reason, perhaps I will not be someone whose posts you look forward to reading. But I am educated. I do make a living by helping oth...
