The man who made 'Mission: Impossible' as exciting as it could ever possibly be....

Happy Birthday

I went to a pool party thrown by an old friend from high school today. There was a girl there who told me a story that made me completely hulk out with envy.

When she was just finishing up high school, the boss at the job she had at the time owned a house that he didn't live in, but would often throw parties at. The house itself was rather tacky, with each room having a different 'theme' (i.e. a Roman room, a space room, that sort of thing), and he pretty much would clear up after the parties but that was about it, no other upkeep. He finally decided that he needed to do something with the house, so he organized something that I so wish I could have been there for: a wrecking party.

So, everybody was told to come down and wear sensible clothes; the power was turned off and the wetwalls were labeled and whatnot... and he set all of his guests loose with axes and crowbars and chainsaws to take this house apart. There were many doors, so everybody got a chance to pull a "Heeeere's Johnny!"

Damn it... I've wanted to do something like this all of my life! The closest I've ever gotten to this level of wanton destruction was when Brad was moving and we had to destroy a piano. Even if I was able to participate in an identical event at some point in the future, the fun will be somewhat tarnished by the fact that it has already been done. Alas.

Your result for The Fashion Style Test...

[Flamboyant Original Deliberate Prissy]

To you fashion is not what they think up in Paris or New York. You follow only your instincts and taste and, admit it, they are far from conventional. Clothes are one of the methods of expressing your personality and being interesting is even more important than being attractive. You pay attention to compose such outfits that would express you best. You tend to shock and though many appreciate your style and originality not many follow in your footsteps. Perhaps your flamboyant outfits are partly meant to hide some of your insecurity but be that as it may, few pass you on the street without looking back. Good job.
The opposite style from yours is Sporty Hottie [Tasteful Conventional Random Sexy].
