Well, if I counted correctly, I've read 31 of these 100. - That's not exactly a crowning achievement! Anything but, actually... :(

HOWEVER, I'm currently working my way through an excerpt of Hume's "An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding" for my Great Books group, so it's not like I only read Patricia Cornwell or Cornwell-wannabes like Kathy Reichs...

I can honestly say I've never been into biting or being bitten, but the picture is hot!


You scored as Biting. When it comes to being kinky, your biggest turn on is biting. You love the ectasy of teeth sinking into your flesh, and are probably willing to return the favor. Sex just isn't sex without using your teeth.

In a comment to one of my TMI posts the other day, a kind soul suggested I make a list of things I want to do before I die. Well, I couldn't really come up with anything, so I let it slide. However, it must have been working on/in me subconsciously, because as I'm sitting here with nothing much to do, it suddenly hits me: 
* I've always wanted to get a tattoo. 
* I'd love to travel to New Zealand (my No. 1 dream vacation destination since forever). 
* I want to watch the sun rise over the desert. 
* Get a license and drive a truck for a couple of months (or be a trucker's co-pilot). 
There are also one or two wishes I'm too shy to share.

And now I'm curious: What's on your List of Things You Always Wanted to Do?

... hop on over to [community profile] legomymalfoy to participate in this year's love meme

What are you still doing here?! ;D

nico1908: (Default)

I am writing to the person who is reading.

Who are you? Where do you call home? I bet it’s a long way away from where I am – I hope it’s not a long way away from where you are.

Have you ever loved someone?
Who was it?
Did you tell them?
What did they say?

Tell me.

How long is it since you went to McDonald’s last?

What’s the worst thing anyone has ever called you? Did it make you wonder if it was true? Was it true?

Can you parallel park?

Let me know.
