    I never got around to marrying him. I was so adamant about doing it when I was 14 and 15. :bigthink:

    Oh well...

    Good song if you want to drive your car very fast. :derp:

    The bass player in the video is Geordie White aka Twiggy Ramirez from Marilyn Manson's band. :grad:

    :giggle: Not really. He lived in Cleveland for a while, but he's from PA. And he HATED Cleveland (although, he had a lot of issues w/a lot of places).

    I don't think it was too smart of him to have children. This is someone who doesn't need to have children. Oh well, done now ... :coffee:
