Yep, you're definitely a Virgo. *Waving* Hello fellow Virgin. Nice to meet you and many of the same likes and dislikes you share. =>

Forgot to add, I blushed at the TMI thing. In my mature age, I've become brutally honest, almost to a fault. I'm also a realist and don't waste too much time/energy with people who are surface/superficial. I'm not TMI to any Tom, Dick and Jane, but my bossom buddies (those intimate 3 in my small circle), I can TMI anytime I open my mouth.

Are we twins?

I love engaging conversations as well. I feel you on music which feeds the soul. I love eating. lol. Sometimes I push it. I like positive energy. Co-sign the intimacy. I love being myself, and being free to be myself. I plan to overcome my adversity. I always have overcame it, so why let it stop me now?

Bad kids irk me, and their parents irk me even more. lol @ over share. I am guilty. I love articulation myself. Sometimes I do fail to communicate effectively. I guess that's my stubborness. The children are the future - at least that's what Whitney Houston told me, so there's nothing I wouldn't do to protect mines.

Good post, Jewel. And no, it's not just you either.

#10 made me think of all the children in Darfur. Its a shame that our government is not doing more to help.

darius - #10 could have easily been my #1 like. it's a great feeling; a truly great feeling.
