Just a few things I'd like to say.

1.)Chuck Norris is a midget, and I'm 6'3. So I've got at least a foot on him.

2.)My beard is at least 2wice as gangster.

3.)His martial arts might be impressive, but I practice the ancient oriental art of .357 teflon-coated hollowpoint. And I don't fire blanks. Neither do my firearms.

4.)I was aware of his alleged "epicness"... But I've never been big on trends, and Chuck's always just been a midgety Christian douche to me... Which is why I suppose I was concerned I was giving a douchey vibe and could thus be construed as a man to give lessons on being douchetastic to a Duke of douchedom.

But now that I know it was intended as a compliment, I thank you.

5.)Bubba Hotep rocked socks. And I hate Elvis, too. So that should tell you something.  ;)

6.)Bruce Campbell... That's a trend I can endorse. <STAMPED RAYMOND APPROVED>

7.)I noticed today that all my favorite things are no longer around. Hunter Thompson.  Planters Cheez Balls. Snapple Rain. Rage Against the Machine. Curtis Mayfield. Deadwood. Lemon Jolly Ranchers.

Rock and hip-hop died in the 90's... Sex requires a lot of TALKING afterwords with people I usually don't like very much and I really don't need the ego-inflation of the "conquest" anymore... The drugs are all overpriced and half the time they're dilluted...

All I have left that is pure is Cap'N Crunch and Sunsets. Somehow I thought the future was going to be better. It's 2011. I'm living in the FUTURE here! WHERE ARE THE GODDAMN FLYING CARS!!!???? WHERE IS MY CHERRY 2000!!?? AND WHO THE f**k'S IDEA WAS IT TO GET RID OF THE GODDAMN CHEEZ BALLS!!!!??? HUH!!??

Sorry. That's been building all day. I think I need to go pray now.

@RaymondKHessel: re Deadwood

Try Justified on FX.  Not Deadwood, but I think you might like it.  If so, you can remove one thing from your list.  :)

Thank you, urs.  I was wondering when we'd get back on-topic.

And that is a great color.  Of course, I haven't yet seen a color that didn't look good on you.

I agree, where are the cheez balls?  But I do have a solution.  If you get Utz Cheese Balls, in the barrel *only* (http://www.utzsnacks.com/store/p-484-barrel-of-cheese-balls.aspx ) they are better, yes *better* ;D than the Planters cheez balls.  They use sour cream to make them and oh does it make a difference.

and lovely hair, urs.  I want to do that.  But I suspect my boss would have issues.

I second this. Being a metalhead I really dig this sort of style. I keep suggesting to my wife that she color her hair a bit (it's naturally black)... not as much as this... but with some dark purple in there or something.... it's not her thang. Oh well.

Thank you Larissa! My wedding dress is not a traditional. But then, my wedding wasn't traditional either.

Since we don't believe in "the white (innocent[1]) bride"
And since we don't believe in god, we were married in the town hall. Small romantic wedding.  ;D

Aww, Zen! You look lovely! I especially love your wedding picture! And I love your pet! I have an African pygmy hedgehog as a pet.  :D
Thanks! It's my favorite dress[2]

I had 2 degus at the time. I also had hamsters, and birds. Now I'm down to 4 guinea pigs. They are the only animals that communicate with sounds.

And I would also like a little hedgehog - but we don't have the space. But they are so cute!  :-*

I have pictures of the hedgehog sleeping on my husband's lap; so cute! And even videos. :P

Talking about guinea pigs (adorable!), they also make great meals. Sorry.  :-X (In Peru, there is a ridiculous amount of guinea pigs. It has always been like that, so we eat them. Tastes like chicken, but I always wish they had a little bit more meat in them. However, it does not imply that I'd eat yours... Then again...  :D)

Yeah I know they eat them in (on?) Peru. It's tourist a thing, right? I've never been there, but if I do, I might try taste guineas. No they don't have much meat. But Cuys do. (giant Guinea pig).
I don't mind they eat them.[1]
 1. But if you eat mine, I'm gonna -eh- I don't really know...

Ha! Thank you. Here's the full size version. I edited the shadows on it to make them a little darker; it helps emphasize the brightness of the other colors.

edited to add: Zenzen, I meant to mention that we didn't have a traditional wedding, either. I had a fuschia colored dress (to match my hair), a friend of ours became ordained so that she could marry us in our house, and we spent the majority of the money on a huge reception and awesome honeymoon. So, right on!

Ha! Principally that they're hungry! I can't open the fridge door with a chorus of squeaks from the next room and anything that sounds like a bag of salad sends them into fits of glee. You know you've gone slightly crazy when you're in the fruit and veg aisle thinking about what the cavies would like for dinner before you think of your own meals.

First day in the outside run this year for ours today, nails clipped and off to enjoy the fresh air, which they promptly ignored by stuffing up the door to their igloo with hay. They were pleased to get back indoors to a nice clean pen, a fresh cardboard box to remodel and a little bit of lettuce, happy putt-putt noises all evening.

Resurrecting this thread for all the n00bs who've joined since February, like myself. I know we aren't supposed to raise threads from the dead, but it seemed better than starting a new photo thread.

It's fun to see what everyone looks like.

Chiguire? Nunca prove, pero apuesto de que es como el cui. El cui estubo bien. Prefiero pollo a la brasa, porque obviamente, tiene mas carnecita. No como el cui, en donde tienes tan poca carne. Tengo que provar un cui mas sabroso; tengo hambre para uno otravez.  :( Mi tia no los come; ella jugava con los animalitos en el restaurante antes de que rompieron sus cuellos.

The capybara [chiguire] looks cute like a guinea pig, to be steering off of the fact that I'd eat the capybara as well as I do guinea pigs in Peru.  :)

Since this is a photo thread, here's me as of recently [a few days ago].



Me and the beach, right by my grandmother-in-law. The pregnancy made me bloat. But, I have been exercising every day, whilst taking care of my diet. So hopefully, I'll return to my regular body shape in a month. I would prefer that, but a month and half or two months is OK, I guess. Every woman's body reacts differently on getting rid of the extra water and blood mass that accumulates from the pregnancy.
