These are my confessions

  • I hate/am afraid of using sharp knives. I was peeling an apple for Baby Froglet the other day was terrified while doing so
  • I curse a lot more than I should. But never in front of Baby Froglet, and less so in front of Mrs. Froggy
  • I enjoy watching "Glee"... the shame
  • I persuaded Mrs. Froggy to buy the "Glee" soundtrack CDs for herself, but in reality am looking forward to us having a road trip and singing those cheesy songs together
  • I sing at the top of my lungs when I am alone in the car
  • I sometimes talk to myself when I'm alone in the car
  • I think I spend too much time alone in the car
  • I'm not crazy about insects
  • I'm not crazy about ladders
  • I sometimes play dumb around people just to get them to leave me alone
  • I also might agree with what those people are saying just to end the conversation
  • I am fairly opinionated
  • Well, maybe a bit more than fairly
  • I sometimes act like I understand what a conversation is about just so I don't look like an idiot
  • I used to snap a lot, but now I only I only snap if you snap at me first. Very mature, I know
I realized some of my guy friends follow my blog and know who I am, so I'm just gonna add a few things to sound like more of a man:
  • I can only do 430 sit-ups a day. Much less that what I used to be able to do
  • I punched a moose in the face for looking at my wife
  • I was deep frying a whole cow to eat before I went to the gym and to spice things up I marinated it in gun powder
Thats about it. Other than that I'm practically perfect ;)

The exhibition runs till 30th June 2010 and then goes on an international tour.
