    i can help you with……

    #7 – paintball – I play it quite regularly have all my own gear, and would love to be the one to introduce you to the sport. While we’re at it i’ll also introduce you to the sport of airsoft.

    #44 – antiques – i think once something is more than 20 years old it counts as an antique. So old comic books can count! Seriously though…poking through old junk and pawn shops can yield some cool finds. You don’t need to go through an actual proper “antique” shop to make your purchase.
    I am a collector (read “pack rat”) of many things. Currently i like looking for west German pottery from the 60’s. My best ones have come from flea markets and yard sales.

    #45 – playing drums – i’ve played since junior high school. Ask Cortejo. She can confirm this s true. To be a drummer one only has to be able to count to 4! To be a great drummer though….you need to count to 5!

    #76 – postcards – combine this with #44…go to a flea market and find some old ones….buy, then send! Would you be more motivated to send one if you got one in return? I can give you my address. lol :-)

    But don’t you live far-far away on a tiny island? If you lived close by I would TOTALLY take you up on all those things.

    But…we could swap postcards. :) I would like that. E-mail me your address, I’ll swap back with you.
