    Me either. I always heard it end in 'floor' as in fall down drunk not the other which seems to imply that women who drink suddenly start charging men for sex. Perhaps I have led a sheltered life.

    As for the original question, I would like to run a small restaurant/coffee shop. That or be like Steve Irwin. I love me some reptiles, though not in a tequila way.

    It's not that literal. Whore just rhymes with four/floor, etc.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Do what I do know. It's what I've wanted to do since kindergarten.

    You just HAVE to read Tales of a Female Nomad. It's an autobiography of a woman who has done exactly that.

    I'm not sure what I would do. I would like to hike and travel part of the year and just hang out in coffee shops and read the rest of the year. If I had any musical talent, I'd busk for extra cash.

    I once had this really strange vision while taking a basketry class. I had the strangest sensation that I was not being taught how to make baskets. I was remembering how to make baskets and I could see myself sitting on a dirt floor making big baskets with other people. So if it was me in a Grok-ish time, perhaps I would be a basketmaker.

    I am doing what I want, I am an artist. I make things. I can paint, draw, and I also make films, collages, and other 3d constructions, books, subversions. In other words I use the medium that fits the idea. Although not currently famous, I would like to be in history books someday. I am not embarrassed to say so.

    If I had another lifetime I have thought about being a singer. I have a fair voice and I think with training it could be pretty good.

    Or maybe a chef since I also love to cook.

    But then again, I have also thought about being a carpenter, or a clothing designer...

    I adore baskets - I have a whole stack of them, some from Germany and some from Ghana (through a minor tribal prince I once knew back in Jersey), but all of them are sturdy beyond belief and completely useful. Awesome vision.
