            I like Caleb or Xavier for a guy.. and Crystal or Caitlin for a girl – I tend to prefer unusual sort of names 🙂

            I have both of those names (Caleb & Xavier) on my list (now that I know it’s a boy)! I like unusual names too! I’m a poet and I guess that’s the poetic side coming out! *grins*

    Is it something in the air? Yes and it’s turning people into rude little bastards. I thought they were all at Disneyland, but apparently they’re making their presence known in Australia, too.

    Go out into your yard and scream… or pound a tree trunk with a big stick. Sounds barbaric, but believe me, it will make you feel TONS better. I know where you’re coming from and I know that if anyone will get out of it, it’ll be you.

    *hugs* <--- look, I did it right this time. ;P

    Gaahhhh! People ARE getting ruder. Like krambear said, screaming is goooood. I used to do it in my car…it really helped. Driving along and screaming at the top of my voice. Not sure what other drivers thought if they saw, but, who cares! Got your response to my other post, tks. I hope you are feeling a bit better now. Hee hee, I don’t need any more stuff either, but I’m just going to get a couple more things (x 10)…famous last words! Lisa BerryD =:)

      The other drivers probably thought you were being hurt in your car or something, heheheh! I screamed good and hard at the 1st driver, but didn’t get to for the other 2 :((

    Shout, scream, curse into a plastic bottle filled with water. Close the lid and shake it like mad. Throw it around if you have to. When you feel better, pour the water away. And cut the bottle into pieces and throw it away.

    The first 2 are two stupid drivers. They shouldn’t be allowed to drive at all! I hope they meet each other at the zebra crossing, opposite direction of course and bang each other. Well, as for the 3rd one, I hope that his phone gets stolen tonight, he can’t claim a new one and he weeps like a girl until his eyes falls out and regret being so rude to the pretty girl who was talking to him in the phone shop the other day. OR they can all just rot in hell.

    Oh, you poor thing. I can understand sometimes you just have those bad days… or weeks… or months.. I’m guessing those guys driving were fairly young.. but that doesn’t matter.. in any case, if they keep driving like that, they’ll send themselves to an early grave.
    I never actually cross a zebra crossing till I look the driver in the eye and can see that they are slowing down to a stop.. I know it’s the law and common sense for the driver to stop whenever someone is on the crossing or about to cross, but it does not happen or the time.. or even if they mean to stop, they may have other things on their mind or be doing something else..
    I say this is as a driver.. not because I’ve actually tried to run someone over at a zebra crossing but because as a driver I often see people walking out and not even looking at the cars coming from their right that could potentially drive into them. This is not just me either. People just blindly cross the road sometimes.. (not saying this is you).
    ok enough ranting.

      Ya – I’ve had driving lessons and it’s unbelievable how many people just cross the road without even looking and expect you to stop for them. And this isn’t at a crossing, it’s just a normal road where you’re NOT supposed to cross! I’ve even see people climb over fences that divide both roads and stuff.. it’s mad.

      So I do take care when I cross a zebra crossing, juuuuust in case the driver doesn’t see me. But I certainly don’t expect people to see me and then rev their engines real loud so I’d run the hell back and not get in their way. Grr!

    my brother took a name, “Zephyrinus” for his confirmation name.
    mine’s “Ezekiel”. i have a friend called “Sharezer” and one more called “Xae”.

    those are the more unique names i’ve heard of.

      Xae and Ezekiel sound cool actually.. I like unusual names, but not *too* unusual such that you have to repeat it 236326 times before people get it, or if you have to spell it out. But I don’t want to name my kids really really common names or they’ll find that 5 other people in the class have the same name as them! Chris always has that problem 😛
