If you want to know private things about me from a couple of
years ago, read my LiveJournal (http://meowse.livejournal.com/). I
haven't been update it lately, though, at all -- so if you want to
know private things about me now, message me or talk with me. I'll
answer basically anything, and you'll never offend me by
Private? Hmmm. Oh, man. I have to say, after years of masturbation
without lube, I'm totally enjoying using lube now. It requires
entirely different paces and motions, but it's really
But private? That's a tough one. It's so easy to fall into, "I'll
say something about sex, and then everyone will see what a

when it comes to evaluating people on OkCupid--I can actually
observe my perception of people's profiles skew when I look at
- I second-guess, third-guess, and fourth-guess all of my
