    I've shaved my head twice. Did it when I was in college. Went from long ponytail+ length both times to razor blade bald. It was very much fun and very freeing in a sense.

    Honestly, I don't really want to get married. I think it's stupid. But yeah, I'll do it for the legal benefit.

    Um. I've got a funny relationship with music. For a long time I didn't ever turn on the radio in my car. It's nothing personal, Music, I just didn't crave you. When I'm upset, music makes me feel worse. It's a distraction and I can't think straight to sort out what I'm....*gasp* feeling! Also...I don't listen to much new music at all. There's a good explanation for that tho. 1) Oldies are awesome. 2) MOST new music sucks. 3) People don't waste time listening to shitty oldies the way they do with new songs. I have to filter through a lot of crap before I find anything good that's new. (And plz don't start asking me what I like and suggesting crap. Respectfully, I'm not going to listen to it. )
    Sooo...I listen to oldies when I'm in a good mood! Yeah!

    I don't think it's particularly unconventional m'self, but I'm pretty much atheist...and by that I mean that I don't believe there's a god, but I could be wrong. (Yeah, I know that's close to agnostic.) Er, it's a lot more common here in the US than it is South of the border. I grew up mostly in Honduras where almost everyone ever is Catholic...'cept our 4-person family wasn't/isn't. :P

    Um... I'm single a lot

    Agree about music. We are so sensitive to our physical surroundings that it can be an extreme irritant. I remember as a kid growing up and the TV was always on...hated that non-stop background noise...needed spaces of silence to think/relax.

    Plus, when an ISTP is focused on task, all external stimuli disappears anyway...the "in-the-zone' thing.

    I'm sensitive to noises, but I don't find it irritating in the background. I also sleep with the TV on a lot..

    Hmm

    I always wear headphones, as my interest gains and wains I move from my head to my senses. Anyways I guess I am half way ESTP/ISTP and I feed off of sensory as well. I dont really care about TV noise though, to much TV talking that bores me. Its just planned, and scripted. Its just to fake. Maybe thats why I cant focus on TV and can get up in the middle and not care, prefer real people and real things.
    Im out, its been fun

    From the outside it appears I live a very conventional suburban housewife existence. However I am different from other "housewives" and moms in that I don't spoil my kids with designer clothes; I don't sign them up for every sports activity; I encourage them to be individualistic and question authority; and I am an atheist while my husband is a youth minister at church. I will not conform to his vision of a perfect catholic family. I have rebelled during mid life and go to the beat of my own drum!

    right on! sometimes it is hard to even know what is unconventional.

    i used to live in a squat when i was 19. it was a really big squat called The Bank. we all had pretty unconventional lifestyles, everyone at the squat was pretty weird and interesting.

    Uh. Unconventional could also be considered insane. Therefore, I plead the 5th.

    McMartinez - razor blade bald. Awesome. That takes balls...uh...ovaries.
