I took the 43 Things Personality Quiz and found out I'm a
Lifelong Learning Traveling Tree Hugger

0.32% of the 70780 people who have taken this quiz are like you.

At least I'm unique! Less than 1/3 of 1% are like me which I think is pretty bad ass. Plus I really do like hugging trees. Literally. Last time I was in Minnesota I was hammered and hugged a huge elm tree and realized it's not just a cliche. Hugging trees feel great to me.

Last night in a fit of tragically delayed "spring" cleaning, I went through my closet in a sort of impromptu treasure hunt. For the past 10 months, I've had quite a bit of extra "stuff" in my house. I've had one roomie move back to the US and another move in, and for going on nine months now I have had boxes upon boxes from both all over my house.

I've been so busy traveling all around the world that when I inevitably did come home to roost, the last thing that I wanted to do was crank out more typing on the laptop.

Ramessh, a chap who works at a distributor for us in the United Arab Emirates on the way back from a high profile business meeting in United Arab Emirates

Light green with two olive stripes

5] How long is your hair?
The pattented Euro Mu-lay is short for summer now. Just long enough to have a little curl in the back

Pirates 3: At World's End. Savvy?

11] Where did you sleep last night?
Suite 808 of the Golden Tulip Dalma Suites in Abu Dhabi.

Would it be too much to ask for to have a beautiful booze girl show up to my hotel room with some hooch & free time?

My family for sure! Especially partying with my sisters together.

26] What were you doing at midnight last night?
Just getting to my hotel after a 7 hour plane flight to the Middle East.

Julia Stiles, Keira Knightly, Natalie Portman, and I still have a crush on Jodie Foster

No way. I mean no sir! Damn, that is gonna cost me like 20 push ups now isn't it.

68] Do you believe in Karma?

69] Last time you went to the gym or worked out?
Honestly, I can not remember the last time I went to a gym. It was probably a couple of years ago in some hotel to visit the pool. But lately I have been in the habit of riding my bike down to the Vondel Park and doing some laps after work before grabbing a beer in the Blue Tea House there.

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 pair.

73] what are you doing today?
Chilling in my hotel room after a few business meetings and killing time with myspace.

78] Do you have a favorite cartoon character?
I love Towlie from South Park. In fact, I have a Towlie doll that says things like "If you go to a hotel, be sure to bring a towel because you never know where a hotel towel has been" or if you flip him over, he stoned as a shrimp (odd Dutch saying) and quips "I have no idea what's going on" Brilliant!

Sent it for a solo cab ride in Barcelona. Adios amigo.

I would love this game

Is there anyone out there that has a Slingbox and would be willing to stream the Phoenix Suns v San Antonio Spurs game tomorrow night? My sister and I are desperate to watch the game, but it starts at 03:00 AM here and all the sports bars close by then on weeknights. I have two different digital cable packages and neither of them have broadcast a single Suns playoff game yet. Please help, you're our only hope...
