17. Yep.
When that car hit my bed, I was a week and a half overdue. I went into *false* labor. I think that upset me more than the hole in the side of my house on a rainy day (which I had to cover in plastic myself, since it was the maintainance guy's day off and he wasn't answering the phone.)

89. My mother pushed me out of the car when I was 2 1/2
That's what I tell her now. But, I was the curious one who opened the door at 35mph on a gravel road.

1. Got 14 stitches in the back of my head from the fall. My poor mom. Think how she must have felt as I went out the door.

2. Once I was dead.

3. I started college as a phys ed major and journalism minor and wound up with a degree in math.

4. I flunked out of college twice and took my second masters with a 4.0

5. My last three cars had 267,000, 229,000 and 356,000 miles. My current car has 245,000 miles and I want 400,00 this time.

6. I was a train spotter in England when I was 15 and living in Oxford.

7. Took me four hours on a park bench to get up enough nerve to kiss my first girl friend - I was really very shy.

8. I switched from smoking, drinking and being a meat eater to being a non-smoker and vegan in literally a heart beat (or lack thereof). I still enjoy a good cabernet every once in a while.

9. I was a successful, super type A CEO at 39, crashing and burning by 43.

10. I really enjoy the warmth and friendliness of the Lounge, how its people support others and accept you without judgment.

10+1 I run 30 miles a week.

10+2 I served on active duty for the Navy in Arlington VA; watched Nixon's call-up of 5,000 airborne from Fort Bragg arrive for one of the big peace demonstrations.

19. Just for you, my dear bi-baby!
The locomotive story:

When I was about 10 years old, my parents and my brother and I went down to the railroad yard to watch the trains switching.

One train engineer leaned out of his cab and asked my brother if he'd like to move the train. He said yes, and we three piled in. My dad took the car to where the train would end up.

But once inside the cab, my brother decided he didn't want to, after all!

So the engineer asked me!

And......I said yes, and so I drove the train! Not well, mind you.......

And a good thing it was that I didn't have to steer! I had a hard enough time just running the throttle........

I went...chug chug chug chugchugchug!

Like that........

They were all laughing! But I drove the train!



:bounce: :bounce:

11. I was left-handed until I was about five, but the nuns made me switch.
Now I write with my right-hand and can do most things with both. However, I can NOT brush my teeth with my right hand. It's like I suddenly get cerebral palsy. I have no idea why because I'm normally quite adept with both and one would think writing would be harder than brushing my teeth. My handwriting is pretty neat, too.

28. You hear a lot about people being forced to switch....
I'm sorry it happened to you....

My mom swears that she didn't force me!

I am also a little bit ambidextrous.........I am basically right-handed, but I wash my face, and thread a needle left-handed.

Weird, huh?

:hug:

43. Nuns totally freak me out to this day & I only went to Catholic school k-4
I even have a baby tee that says "Catholic School Survivor." Priests don't freak me out though. Most of the priests I know are pretty nice. Hell, it was a Catholic priest that convinced my mom that I wasn't going to hell for being gay. Gotta give him props for that.

27. The back was trimmed up in April or so but I don't think it grows slowly.
Edited on Wed Aug-16-06 12:45 AM by haruka3_2000
My hair was pretty much buzzed and it's about 5" where it wasn't trimmed up. I felt like I was getting a mullet, so I freaked and did an impromptu home haircut. I amazingly did an even job.

I'll see if I can find any of my mom's wedding pictures to scan.

Yep, I'm an IKEA wiz. I've only encountered one issue and that was a piece of furniture that had improperly drilled holes. Some cursing, blood, sweat and tears and I pounded that motherfucker together.

26. I teach a lot of lab sections
Unlike most grad students, I really like to do it....lol..which is probably why my class reviews are usually really high. I've done a lot of micro...fascinating stuff.

Do you like Econ? I didn't like it at all....I kept wondering why the Economists would never talk about nature/environment, since it has such a large effect on production. Apparently, nature isn't taken into account in most of the charts and forumalae!

36. 10 Random thangs.....
1. I'm a member of the Polar Bear club. And that water was fucking COLD!

2. I accidently stabbed myself in the genitals playing with knives earlier this evening. The damage was minimal but I discovered there are certain places band aids aren't made to fit very well :(

3. I love doing art. Painting, drawing, making paper, collages, sculpting. I suck at all of it, but I don't care.

4. I love books. All my bookcases are full, every flat surface is stacked with books. Now I'm stacking them on the floor and my apartment is turning into a maze.

5. I hate house cleaning and I'm really bad at it.

6. At home I'm a nudist. But the bad thang about it is the lack of pockets. Where do I put my ipod?

7. I'm incredibly sentimental.

8. I have really bad panic attacks.

9. I am incredibly, painfully shy.

10. I write poetry. It's not too bad actually, some of it. I even had a couple of poems published.

11 - 1 extra. I want to be a photographer. I believe I'd be good at it (but the results indicate my belief is misplaced). And I'm incredibly jealous of people who are good photographers.

Answer to bonus question: Of course you should have another Bloody Mary! Excess in everything; moderation is for monks. Now, what's my prize? :)

Khash.

2. I cannot say aluminum without becoming tongue-tied.

3. I once wrote a successful $3M+ grant proposal.

4. I impulse shop for things I don't need like red pleather studded belts, expensive ties and hawaiian shirts then wear them together to justify their purchase.

5. I have two geminated teeth. (fused teeth sharing a single root structure)

6. I have an outstanding $50 fine for handing out blueberry muffins to homeless people in Bushnell Park before a mayoral address. Facilitating loitering, my ass. }(

7. I wrote a published children's book in 2nd grade about a horse and a cat who give safety advice.

8. I can make contest-winning homemade primavera sauce but I can't not burn grilled cheese.

9. I'm left-handed.

10. I took 2 years off from work to take care of my grandma when she got cancer.

Lol..how many times have they come in, and back out, of fashion. I love that the glasses I had in grade eight are now "the style". People used to make fun of them back then....garrrrr.

46. They were never in style
my parents bought the nastiest, ugliest frames you've ever seen because they were cheap and what 9 year old isn't going to destroy glasses. Well, they've never broken in any way that couldn't be repaired and since the script never changed I never was allowed to get new ones. I finally got new glasses when I got my first job post-college but they broke a while ago and since I was broke and uninsured...back to the indestructable 3rd grade frames.

The first thing I'm doing after I start work and get benefits is getting new glasses.

47. Okay, I'll play.
1. My basic physiology is supposed to be tall and skinny, but I screwed that up with lots of comfort eating and no exercise during middle school and most of high school.

2. I have thick hair, along with ridiculously hairy legs and forearms, but my chest and upper arms are practically hairless, and I don't grow a beard very well.

3. I absolutely love history.

4. Stress is seemingly hard-wired into me.

5. I cannot stand carbonated beverages, including beer.

6. Am a ridiculous fan of George R.R. Martin.

7. I get stupid when I'm tired. Went to a Ren Faire this spring on 4 hours of sleep and I think everyone thought I was a half-wit.

8. Gore in horror flicks doesn't bug me in and of itself, but gore for the sake of gore does.

9. I don't think I have any non-Republican extended family.

10. I have poor social skills, and express myself better through writing than I do through talking.

49. Here it goes...
1. I have been a Democrat all of my life.

2. My Mom knew Congressman Bob Matsui, personally; and that's probably why I became a Democrat at an early age!

3. I actually had a professor who despised me so much he marked "U" for unacceptable on a term paper.

4. Chocolate is my favorite food (it is a food, right?).

5. I can say one moment please in 5 different languages.

6. I've had a secret crush on Gordon Lightfoot since I was 10 year old (well, maybe it's not so secret)

7. I eat weird food combinations-- tonight I ate chocolate yogurt, pistachio nuts, and then saffron rice with raisins.

8. Sometimes I can tell what my cats are thinking, but I have no idea how (and not just the simple stuff)!

9. I hate being in a supervisory position.

10. When I was young I wanted to style hair for a living...and sometimes I still wish I could!

53. Hmmmm....
It really is kinda difficult to come up with even 'random' facts...even without considering my desire not to too tightly identify myself inadvertently, it kind of becomes a quest for things pushed to the backroads of my memory...

Start with one, I guess, and see how it goes from there. Here goes.

1. The most recent replica Elvis jumpsuit I made required almost 1900 brass studs, each of which had four to six prongs that I had to crimp individually with needlenose pliers.

2. I've got some kind of wicked-looking shrapnel in my body that just, really, can't possibly be there -- I would have noticed its introduction -- but it's there, nevertheless. :shrug:

3. I have turned over a live shark, while diving, to induce 'tonic immobility.'

4. I've lived (at least two years) in three countries, so far, and stayed a month or more in three others. I'm a citizen of two countries and able to live and work in a third with no papers required.

5. I have six civilian and scientific dive certifications and six related medical certifications

6. As a graduate student I held an Adjunct Assistant Professor position at a private northeastern university.

7. I have three graduate degrees, from two universities in two countries, and no undergraduate degree.

8. I stepped on Kenny Rogers' foot.

9. I almost died in a diving accident on the 20th anniversary of Elvis' death (in other words, nine years ago today)

10. One of my underwater photographs was used on a postage stamp

11. I've had my big toe pinched ('pinched' does not adequately describe the agony) by a large rhinoceros beetle and have been bitten by a kangaroo

12. Among my writing output has been 16 articles in 'popular' (i.e., non-specialist or 'consumer') magazines

I did it! Not sure how random they are, though.

:D

62. Now mine...
1) First car was a 1973 Plymouth Fury III, metallic green with a green hardtop. :P My great aunt decided she could no longer drive at age 92, so she asked my mother if she could give it to me and my sister to use in college. That was my junior year in college, and I was damn glad to get that car. :) It only had 13,000 miles on it in 1984, 11 years after she bought it. :P She was the proverbial little old lady that only drove it to church on Sundays. :rofl: Problem was, though, that when she drove, she drove like a race car driver, and there were things wrong with it that the mechanic said would only have happened by driving it at very high speeds and taking corners too fast. :rofl: That car only got about 8 miles to the gallon. And we coulda driven it to the Love Shack, 'cause it was big as a whale and it's about to set sail.... :rofl:

2) When I was a kid, I stepped on some broken glass, and some of it was never removed because it was too deep. When I was in my late 20s, some of that glass worked its way to the surface, and I had to have it taken out. :yoiks:

3) I sleep in the nude and often let my dogs in or out in the middle of the night with nothing on. I appear at my back door naked very often. There are houses behind us, but the trees obscure any view they might have. :P Oh, and about two months ago, I stepped outside on the deck to round up one of our dogs about 2 AM, and I didn't have anything on. :evilgrin: It was dark, and no one was around....

4) I made a 1280 on the SAT in 1980.

5) I have two bachelor's degrees and one master's degree.

6) I have very fair skin that burns and never tans.

7) I listen to tunes in my car with the sound WAY up. Hey---Blitzkrieg Bop HAS to be loud! :rofl:

8) I've never had braces, and my teeth are almost totally straight. I attribute this to the fact that I used to make my baby teeth loose on purpose when I was a kid so that I'd get money from the tooth fairy. :rofl:

9) I worked as a lifeguard twice in the summers during and after high school. I was a certified Water Safety Instructor and am an excellent swimmer.

10) I have an acute sense of smell and amaze my family by picking up on scents so quickly. The downside of that is that smells like asphalt make me ill. :(

11) I make the baby Jesus cry a lot.

12) I was a Girl Scout from elementary school (actually a Brownie then) all the way through my senior year in high school.

3) You know your freeper neighbor was secretly watching, right?

7) Music must be played in the car all the way up. It's a rule. The most ridiculous the better. Personally, I enjoy blasting something like "Ride of the Valkyries" with the windows open in my Jeep while driving through heavily populated suburban main streets. It's even more enjoyable than watching the reactions to this little white girl blasting gangsta rap.

74. Okay!
1. I messed up my femurs when I was a kid, by sitting in a "W" position all the time:

They turned in when I ran, but finally straightened out when I was a young adult.

2. I had an unmedicated birth with Sophie, but practically had to be restrained every time (6) I got my ears pierced.

3. The sweet pea is my favorite flower.

4. I've never been south of Minnesota.

5. I have over fifty bottles of nail polish.

6. I make friends very easily irl, but worry about getting too close to new people that I meet, because I don't have enough time to incorporate many more friendships into my life; I can't hang out all that often, and I already have alot friends I want to spend my time with, and hate being spread thin among them.

7. Sometimes I'm an asshole.

8. I went all last winter with no heat in my car. It sucked; especially when I couldn't see out the windshield and had to take the kids places.

9. Probably once a week, I drag JackMN out of his crib when he's sleeping, and lay him on my chest, and go to sleep that way. I love to snuggle and smell him.

10. I wish Gore would run, in '08.

79. It's not hard to make.
I make my own "spaetzel", but you can use cooked noodles or pasta.
Just saute the cabbage in butter or margarine slowly until it's soft. You have to watch it so it doesn't brown. I add a little water every now and then. You can also saute some diced onions if you like them. Then toss in the noodles.

Oh gosh.... now I want to make some for dinner!

7. My grandmother nearly drowned me when I was two because I said "no" to her. She picked me up and threw me in a swimming pool, then walked away. Luckily my mother was nearby and came and fished me out. (I still remember this incident).

8. I went to vocational school for auto mechanics but really sucked at it.

9. I have never tried marijuana, though I had a few very close friends in high school that were major tokers.

10. There were only 20 kids in my high school graduating class.

91. Random?
Well, I can cough out a dozen facts, I don't know how random they are.

1. I have an extra vertebra. I was born with it. It's not limiting or disfiguring. I'm possibly a tad taller and a tad more flexible because of it but that's not certain.

2. My birthday is nine months to the day after my Dad's birthday. I figure I was a little birthday nookie.

3. My mother, and one elder brother are classically trained and professionally certified chefs. I hold a certification as a sous chef and pretty much grew up in the culinary industry. I can cook like no body's business.

4. I drive a convertible.

5. English is not my first language.

6. I studied ballet for 14 years and still have my pointe shoes.

7. There is no number 7.

8. I don't much care for eggs.

9. Aubergines make me weepy and emotional.

10. My brothers and I used to engage in 'Most Disgusting Plate Arrangement' contests. The brother who became the chef is actually the one who most frequently won. In order to claim a victory, contestants were required to consume their entry.

11. I own and have read several thousand books.

12. I studied Catechism in Latin with an old Irish Rite Oner.

all of them. Age 14: Blood disease. Age 19: Falling off the skid. They told me "don't ride the skid," but I did anyway. Age 24: Having the aneurism in my gut blow up as I was driving to the hospital to get X-rays.

But I'm still here.

114. ok, here are 10 somewhat random things
1. I had a grandfather who was an 'FDR Man' and a township trustee in rural Ohio in the 1930's.

2. I had a great-grandfather who was a Republican mayor of a small Illinois farm town.

3. I cried before I was born, on the way out though, but very rare as I understand it.

4. I won $5 dollars in an AM radio call-in trivia contest in the 1960's as a grade schooler, the correct answer was 'Gil Hodges'.

5. I once went to a grade school Halloween party as Fidel Castro. Nobody could figure that out, but I just wanted to wear a beard.

6. I am extremely allergic to poison ivy. Got any calomine lotion handy?

7. I once had a black cat named Shirley after Shirley Chisholm, the New York Congresswoman who ran for president in 1972.

8. I once owned Ford Pinto station wagon, the air pollution equipment on it sucked but I fixed it all by cutting a belt to one part of it, and putting duct tape over another part of it. Then it ran and sounded fine. A mechanic at the Ford dealer was the one who suggested cutting the damn belt, the duct taped part was my idea.

9. My doctor says I look like Michael Andretti, the former race driver. My wife thinks my doctor looks like Harrison Ford, and I agree that he does.

10. I think 'Shredding the Document' by John Hiatt will always and forever be a relevant song.

120. Random_Australian! No-one will read it this far down but what the hey!
1) Perhaps the most random thing about me is that when barefoot (which I prefer) I walk on my toes, not my feet. (Well, the very front of my feet, not the toes themselves)

2) I listen to two sets of music simultaneously and hear two seperate songs in my head through one set of headphones (except when I am tired)

3) Soon I will prove that both religion and atheism are valid choices. And I mean prove. (I hope)

4) I know 7^11, 8^11 , 9^10 off the top of my head, and also the speed of light. (They are 1977326743 , 8589934592 , 3486784401 , and 2.99792458 * 10 ^ 8 respectively - and only the last one serves any purpose whatsoever)

5) I have exceptional (and I mean exceptional) difficulty with geometry, trigonometry and spatial reasoning (relative to how good I am at similar things)

6) I have never drank alcohol, and I never will. I can't, unfortunately.

7) I rederived my morals from physical principles.

8) When I woke up this morning, I could not move my legs. (Temporarily they are unbelieveably sore from yesterday)

9) I talk to Ava over AOL more than you do!

10) I do capoeira - a brazilian martial art disguised as dance.

He was impressed by my preternatural ability to retain copious amounts of trivia.
From what I've seen of him in interviews and on news shows, I'm rather disappointed.
A man of his natural intelligence SHOULD know better!

Side note: After my appearance on the show, one of the producers had me participate as a mock contestant for a few gameshows he was developing. I met Ant (stand up comic)on one of those.
