Seeing as I haven't had the time this holiday season to write anything of any significance ... let me leave you with my responses to some "interview" questions that I answered on a random Facebook application whilst bored at work. Trust me, this is but a random sampling as the "interview" was much, much, much longer. Still ...

ZZ Top - 'Cause you know "Every Girls Crazy Bout A Sharp Dressed Man"

Is there only one soul-mate for anyone, or are there more than one?
Soul mates are not meant to be forever. Read 'Eat Pray Love' and you will understand.
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you and then they leave. And thank God for it.” ~Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love
