I'm an Aquarius and a Rabbit ( in Chinese Astrology ). I have OCD, Depression and a few other 'Mental Health Issues'. I can be scatterbrained and I'm known to procrastinate. I love animals and nature, especially the ocean and the forests. I enjoy science fiction and science/technology fact. I also love Anime and cartoons and I've recently discovered Graphic Novels. My favourite video game is 'Harvest Moon' for the PS1. I'm also a Tetris addict! I'm told I'm more like a kid than an adult!

I haven't been on here for awhile ( I blame my Facebook/video game addictions ) but this time when I logged on I remembered to check the Treasure Chest and got $1,000! Very Awesome!!!
There have also been some lovely warm, sunny days and I haven't even been online...GASP!!!
I have abandoned my poor computer for the great outdoors, fresh air and walks in the park!
( I know, such a meanie! )
And, if the weather reports can be believed, I will most likely do it again!!!
I do not know if I have S. A .D. ( Seasonal Affective Disorder ) but I am feeling a whole lot happier seeing the sunshine and a lot more energetic when getting out in it! Shauna Elizabeth Katherine Crane"Westcoast Beauty"Mellow

I read this in a free news paper called 'Coffee News'...
PICKY LADY: Milunka Dabovic, a 38-year-old woman from Maskova in central Serbia, received her first proposal of marriage when she was just a young girl of 14. Twenty-four years and 149 marriage proposals later, she still hasn't said "Yes" to a suitor. Her search for "Mr. Right" continues. Dabovic says that sometimes a particularly determined would-be husband tries to get her mother to convince her to say "Yes". "They won't take 'No' for an answer," she says. Her criteria for a husband is straight forward: tall, handsome, hard worker, good heart, and willing to live in her village.
So, is it the men or is it her criteria that they live in her village?
I guess the reason that this caught my attention is that I myself had received two marriage proposals, and I said "No" to both of them. That happened in my late 20's and one was my common-law husband of six years. His proposal was along the lines of..."I guess I'll marry you...as long as you agree not to have any kids." Since at that time I wanted to have 7 or 8 kids and he knew that I wanted to have children I didn't find it difficult to say "No, thank you!" The second proposal was a few days later from his best friend, who was a fun guy to party and drink with, but I felt that he was not the most mature guy for a future father, and so I said "Sorry, but No".
Fast forward nearly 20 years later...unlike Milunka Dabovic I haven't received an additional 147 marriage proposals, but I do have a daughter I love very much!
Though, I have to admit, after a couple years of being a single parent the idea of an additional 6 or 7 children was no longer something I wanted or even thought I could manage!
Oh, and as for her criteria for a husband:
'Tall, handsome, hard worker, good heart, and willing to live in her village'
I feel that at least 'hard worker, good heart and willing to live in her village' aren't such terrible things to want in a husband...but I guess time will tell...for me as well!

Joke : Miss Beatrice
Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea. As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it. The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of all things, a condom!
When she returned with tea and scones, they began t o chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and He could no longer resist.
"Miss Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about this?" pointing to the bowl.
"Oh, yes," she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven't had the flu all winter."
