Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

My wife. Before I met her I was an awful person. Now I'm just somewhat terrible.

Gotta go with mom. But, the wife is a very close second, only because I've known mom longer.
I'm now a lot like dad. Was that a positive influence?

My kids. They are the most important thing in my life.

UMMMmm, I don't know your mom. But my mom was the greatest.

Listening to the voices is calming. Except for Fernado, he pushes my buttons.

When I was growing up I attended a Christian non-denominational all-girls camp in the California Mountains. My parents were good people but they grew up in the depression and my mom had a lot of trouble expressing affection. I spent many weeks at that camp for over 15 years of my life--eventually working there as long term staff. What impressed me was, I'd met a lot of people who *Said* they believed things. And *said* to live well, treat people right, care for others, etc. This particular woman truly did accept others, cared for people and accepted all denominations of people. I learned so much from her and I've always looked up to her as an inspiration of a Godly -- and just plain GOOD life.

The fact that husband/Wife was left off the lift a. says volumes about the person who put it together, and b. I think it says WOOT U R TEH FAIL.

There is never a bad time to not want to need something. Except now.

I really raised myself and observed people, picking and choosing the good, bad and ugly.
