I like hedgehogs, watching historic documentaries, and college

I'm not really a movie person. I'll watch them sometimes but I
never go to theatres or go out to rent movies. I do have a few
favorites though and they are: Hotel Rwanda, Lost in Translation,
Eight Days a Week, Ghost World, Fargo, Boondock Saints, Snake
B-1 (TV): I love watching sports on ESPN.com. I'm hooked on

Why do most Japanese sweets come in two wrappers? For example, I
challenge you to find any kind of cookie that is not individually
wrapped, packaged in 8-10 and packaged again.
In Japan, on every set of double doors, one door is permanently

You have something you want to share with me. I recommend music and
