You Scored as Foreign Policy Hawk

Foreign policy hawks believe that the spread of liberty throughout the world is the historic mission of the United States, and that it is vital for our security. They can be found in both political parties, and are united in their desire for a large military and a highly assertive foreign policy.

Environmental Impact
 I've been thinking of my impact on the environment lately for some strange reason.  I've mostly driven vehicles that use too much gas-in fact, most of my vehicles have been V8s (although there has been a turbo-four or two along the way), I use take out places that still use styrofoam containers, rather than rinse out metal and plastic takeout containers and put them in recycling I tend to just throw them out in regular garbage.  Also, for years I've used disposable enema kits, disposable this, disposable that, etc.  Therefore, one can only come to the conclusion that I have had a negative effect on the environment.  

I'm going to try and change all that.  Now, I'm not saying that I'm going to start driving a hybrid car-I mean, that's not me.  In fact, the truck has to last a few more years, but the next  car will definitely be more efficient-I will probably stay with a V8, but maybe get one that shuts off half the cylinders on the highway or a high output six (I'm sorry, I like horsepower, but there are ways to get it without getting a low 12 miles to a gallon).  I'm also going to try and avoid places that use styrofoam take out trays, and do my part to recycle more than I actually do (ie, clean takeout containers and put them in recycling).  Furthermore, starting tonight, I'm going to use less bottles of water in the house and only save them for the car-I mean, both the house and the apartment have filtered water, so why not drink that more when at home-right?

Just Funny Godzilla References From Sanford & Son
1. "Is it the one where Godzilla Eats Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Gets Diabetes?"
2. "It's the one where Godzilla Eats Hershey, Pennsylvania and Gets Nuts"

I love godzilla references-in fact, every once in awhile I watch Godzilla movies because they are so bad they're good :)

What's In A Name
      I think more people call me Dave than David.  This has gone on all my life, but does anyone know that I really prefer David to Dave, probably not.  Yeah, in a quickie email I'll sign it Dave, but that's only because most people call me Dave.  So, why haven't I ever said anything-I dunno, probably because I'm pretty easy going about such things.  The other thing is, well, David is quite formal, whereas, Dave, he's just a fun, laid back guy-which is the playful image I try and project-usually pretty successfully.  Now my middle name however, well, that's a closely guarded secret and for those that know, I prefer the nickname to the actual name...

Something That Just Made Me Really Happy
As some know, the apartment in Chelsea has a few direct views of the Empire State Building-I'm so used to seeing it, especially lit up at night that I kind of take it for granted.  Something I haven't seen in a long time-especially with the amount of time I've spent in the country this past year is the Empire State Building, at night, with it's uplighting off-so that only a few internal lights are on and only on certain floors and the ring of lights on right above the observation tower at the very top.  I just looked out the window in the kitchen to see that, and wow, there's just something surreal about all the darkness with the lighted "crown" so to speak.  I stared at the shadow like outline of the building and I don't know why, but it made me feel really happy.

Complicated? No, Not Really
     So, in my never ending quest to drive myself crazy with thinking, this topic has popped into my head today, and I just felt like writing about it.  Awhile back, I made a joke to a friend that unlike my stereo, I'm complicated (my Stereo only has a few buttons on the face).  I think his response was "you're really not complicated" or something to that effect.  That is actually a truth-that for as complicated as I can come off or want to come off as, I'm actually pretty basic.  So, I figure I'd let everyone in on the big secret to my inner workings...

     I have very simple motivations-in fact, my general stance on life is the Freudian view of everything being about sex-unless it's about death.  I so know that people are going to argue with me on that one, but hey, am talking about myself here.  My primary motivations are play based.  I love playing-especially playing hard.  Get into my head, play with it, push me further, bring play to spiritual and intense levels-I love stuff like that.  If it's lighter play, as long as it's good-I'm there.  Gear of course is very cool *g*.   

     I love cars, and unlike others, I find cars sexy.  When I'm working, yes, I do like a nice, new car every few years-that's probably my biggest vice actually, an unhealthy love of the automobile.  I can't explain it is what it is.  A car to me is more than basic transportation-and while what I'm driving now isn't my usual taste (especially compared to what I drove in the past), it's good for now.

     Having fun-I have a relatively adventureous nature, and I'm not talking about play, but rather, in general.  Finding new things and having new experiences is always fun for me.  I'm constantly looking to do new things-it's just who I am.  I mean, it's all about fun-what good is all of this if it's boring and not fun-there is no point in my opinion.  Music is important, it moves me, so is art, and yeah, I'm a little bit of a shoe whore-I love shoes.  Friends are important-and while some of the friendships I have are extremely complex, that doesn't mean that I am.  

     Finally, yes, I can be competitive, and often go overboard in terms of work or play because of such.  Hell get me next to someone doing the same exact thing, and I'm going to have to be best-it's just my nature.  That's pretty much about it-I mean there are those that would say that money is also important to me-but not so much to save, more for spending to have a good time-but it really doesn't take money to have a good time.  But, that's me in a nut shell-I'm pretty basic.

ok, this is just like yawning, downright infectious...
Ok, has anyone else ever experienced anything like this....  Someone "woofs" then you "woof" or "arf" back, then it goes on over the course of a few days, he leaves, and you're still arfing at everything for no reason... This is weird for me.
