Some serious stuff. I work for a non-profit promoting clean energy
When I am not doing that I am out. I am a triathlete and train
twice a day. When I say train, I kind of flop about in the pool,

try to just enjoy the moment with the person I am with. I am
usually upfront and chivalrous unless you scare the living crap out

Why do nearly all taxi drivers listen to talk radio, doesn't it
just wind you up even further, why not listen to smooth jazz or
enya or a meditation cd? Also are they all talking to each other in
these bluetooth headsets? Like one big constant teleconferenced
