    Lana's sissy pet is a nationally certified massage therapist and Reiki Master....about the only time the word "Master" has been used in reference to her.

    I have been on TV many times as an extra. Roles are usually a body guard or police officer.

    I like mucking about with creative stuff when I'm in the mood. Had a couple of stories published (one of which is in many libraries in the US) and a song I wrote played on national BBC radio.

    I was sworn at by David Attenborough in a book shop in Peterborough and I ignored Chris Evans in Soho, London. And one evening I ignored David Guest in York. I quite like ignoring minor celebrities.

    I asked him to sign a book to my dad. He told me no he bloody couldn't as his dad was dead!

    Not the worst swear word I am aware, but out of the mouth of Sir Attenborough it was quite a shock. I just thought he was a bit of a tosser, got the book signed anyway and left.

    In a separate incident Elle was sworn at by the Duke of Edinburgh while she was walking in Windsor Great Park, but that isn't really surprising or interesting as he swears all the time at everyone.

    He wouldn't sign a book for your dad because his dad is dead?

    That is correct. I had asked him to sign it as a Christmas present. It sort of made sense. I mean, if he wrote to Dad and signed it, it would look like he was signing it for his dad I suppose.

    I've had several poems published in minor journals.
    Spent 6 years in the US Army and went to Iraq a couple times.
    I enjoy bonsai. I'm still a novice but it's fun.

    But I didn't ignore David Attenborough. It was the others I ignored.

    I jumped out of perfectly functional small airplanes a few times, then i broke a leg upon my 10th landing and while i was resting a bit waiting for a buddy to drive me to the hospital, the next batch went up for a group jump with my instructor among them. When after a bit of free-fall the canopies opened, my instructor's was not among them! He managed to deploy his secondary in time but landed far off the strip in the prickly bushes.
    I never skydived again. :(

    Sounds exciting. I've never jumped out of an airplane before maybe because I'm usually the one flying it. If I did jump out Now That would be Exciting

    Twice now I have walked openly displaying my cage at a motorcycle rally.
    I can't put into words how nervous I was the first time walking out of the tent, into the sunshine, with the stainless steel of my jailbird glistening in the sunlight.

    Honestly it was close to Topeka Kansas.
    It is all about the party and not the riding. There are many topless women some naked, and a few naked men.
    Last year my wife and I had a giggle when somebody referred to me as gladiator cock
