I have been told that my back is my best feature--people like to make sure I've left the room.

I've always been told that I have amazing eyes... they seem to have a strange way of changing colour depending on my mood -- from a nice greenish tint when I am in a great mood, to a grey-blue colour when I am really angry.

Here's a link to my SETI Team pic, in case you want to see what my eyes look like:

What do you think?

I work with Ann Brodie's Carolina Ballet (there's another company with that name in NC). You can get information about them from the Columbia Music Festival Association down on Pulaski St. downtown by the Amtrak station if you like.

The next time I'll be in a show will probably be the Nutcracker, which will be in November at the Township Auditorium. The Columbia City Ballet has their production at Christmas in the Koger Center, but they're a professional company.

I've been with the Carolina Ballet for about ten years now, and almost always end up being the Rat King in the Nutcracker. It's also something of a running joke that there are no pictures of my face in the programs for the shows. Everyone else has a head shot in the artist bios, but mine is always a picture of the rat mask, heh heh.

You've a great body, but I still think your best feature is your smile, darling.

My redheads. A two year old and a four year old make great conversation pieces. I don't think people notice what I look like at all. :-(

I've never been told any compliments about my physical appearance, and don't care either...though I find it quite saddening that I can't think of one single comment in my entire life...well, anywho, my eyes used to do a bit of transforming colors between aquamarine-blue-grey...I had one person tell me I have hazel eyes...oh well...I don't think they change anymore anyway...

Hmm..the eyes and butts seem to be the most popular. I've always been complimented on my personality-always a bad sign.

Other women always compliment me on my complexion-though, why, I don't know.

Mine do that. It depends a lot on what I'm wearing - they get bluer when I wear blue, grayer when I wear green, and go aqua if I'm wearing turquoise. It amazes my sister's friends.

I guess in order of times i've gotten:

1. Smile
2. Eyes
3. Butt (I dont actually have one "butt" what ever you like i guess)
4. Feet (actually the archs of my feet)
5. Skin

My girlfriend says she finds my hands sexy. She also likes my eyes and hair.

I've always been complimented on my hair.

I personally feel like a slug right now cause I haven't done any real exercise in over a year.

haha, I just posted something in a different topic thinking I was in this window...oh well, I'll say it here too, I was recently told that my eyes seemed to be a nice shade of green (I was wearing dark blue and white at the time for those who are interested)...well, that's about all, heh...cept that last I looked in the mirror they were blue with a bit of a green line through the center...looked kinda cool..ya know, it feels kinda weird staring yourself in the eyes...

You should share your invention with the world, spungo-how to regress in age right before our eyes. Oh, wait-men wouldn't need to buy it, would they??

**sigh** I guess I'll have to settle for that butt for now....

The number three thing that I usually get commented on, although I'm not sure if it is a compliment or not, is my legs. I usually wear long shorts but women have been known to comment that I have the shapeliest calves they have ever seen combined with the skinniest ankles they have ever seen.

The number two thing that people notice, men and women are my shoulders pectorals and arms. Women will comment that they like the way that this area is and wishes that whatever man was in their life was shaped more like me (most of these from older women who probably just wish that that other guy were 21 like me.) And a LOT of guys commenting on how I've retained my great football/wreslting shape from highschool. (I've never played football, and only spent one season in junior high on the wrestling team.) I guess that a 5'6" guy with 2'6" shoulders is pretty impressive.

And the number one thing that impresses people is my hug. Men who are comfortable enough to hug me always do the cough-cough holy crap your crushing my lungs thing, and women that are comfortable enough to hug me never want me to stop. I guess women just like a good, strong hug. That can get me into trouble because when I hug my wife she doesn't ever let me stop hugging her until my arms are too tired to lift. Do women like hugs that much?

Hmm...

I don't really notice when people are looking at me, so I can't tell if they think I have a nice body or not. Probably not.

But I do get compliments on my eyes. Usually from my friends. It's kinda annoying at times; I'm trying to have a conversation and they just start staring at me, then say "Wow, you have really pretty eyes." Ah well, they could say "There's something stuck in your teeth."

I like my eyes; they're a nice icy blue shade that I enjoy having.

I like it, too), and the shape of my legs. I dunno about it, but my mom and 'girl friends' (feh, I never use that term) say they're nice and long ...


Eh... I was told my hair is annoying. Well screw you, hobbit man!! Just kiddin' about the... actually never mind, heeh. But I kinda agree that it's annoying... it's everywhere, and that can be oki when I'm banging' my head to rock, but not when it's blowing in the wind and poking me in the eye.

Anywho, I want to now say that *I* think my really neato features are me eyebrows because I think they have a nice little fine shape to them,... and also my chest, which I've noticed are contradicting me and not staying the good size they are. But that can be a bad thing, now can't it :-/...

Mmm! I also think that if I did some more crunches, I'd have a superb stomach .

That is all...

No snupy, I am not a man... I AM A GEEK.
* 8) *

I am of course a male geek, and thus my opinion wasn't asked for on the subject of hugs... but here it anyway. I also feel I have to add, hugs are an odd thing... I go through spurts where I could careless weather or not I am hugged (am hugging), but there are times that I feel the need for a hug... Also, it sometimes matters not who I hug, others I require a hug from a certian person (like if I know that a friend is having a hard time, and I find myself worrying for them I feel the need for their hug).

Lastly, I'd like to say what it is about a hug (with that special someone) that is so important to me (as snupy did with "feeling the person's back") and that is... Felling her head resting on my chest, and knowing that they trust me not to hurt them and to protect them...
