Duran Duran Quotes
I met Nick at an institute for waywardly homoerotic teenagers...
Id take all the virgins into the back room and deflower them, ha ha. Fuck you, Im done.
Ill give you three excuses to trash a hotel room. One is that construction work is going on and then they didnt tell you. Two is that the curtains do not shut completely. And three - because youre a star baby!
Im such a mommas boy. I used to think it was rebellious to throw a towel on the floor.
Im sure Im a schizophrenic. The problem is I cant tell the difference between which ones which, which one is the real me.

I have very stange dreams, especially when I'm traveling. I had one recently that someone was sending me messages by spider. A spider would crawl up my right arm, go across my shoulders and down my left arm and then I'd understand the message. The messages came from my right hand - they were really stupid. I don't think it'll catch on.
This is the most fun I've had with my pants on. Now if I'd said this is the most fun I've had while wearing women's underwear, we'd be having an entirely different conversation...
