Ten Things About You
« on: January 02, 2011, 09:52:25 AM »
This one is simple and fun. Tell us ten things that we don't know about you.

Here's mine:

1. Im left-handed.
2. I have an obsession with teashades.
3. I can't snap my fingers.
4. I feel uncomfortable borrowing things from people. If someone loans me something, I get in a rush to return it.
5. I have a kitten that looks like a leopard (bengal cat).
6. I put mayo on French fries.
7. I was once stalked (in real life) by a guy who had an imaginary girlfriend and a scat fetish.
8. I can draw competently, but I paint horribly.
9. I sometimes misuse, mispronounce, or use non-existent words... much to the amusement (and confusion) of people around me.
10. If it's an insect, and it bites or stings, I have a crippling phobia of it. If it's in the house, it is imperative to kill it, or I will not sleep.

1.  I used to be an incredibly dominant pitcher in a seriously competitive Wiffle Ball League (didn't lose a game in the 3 years I competed).  I started out with a sinker/ rising fastball mix, then developed a sweeping slider and a nose to toes curveball with a screwball mixed in.  If my team scored 2 runs, we were a mortal lock.  We always scored 2 runs or more.
2.  I like pickled herring.
3.  I can't stand tomatoes unless they're chopped finely or pureed.
4.  I can draw a little. 
5.  I have been told many times I should be an attorney or a talk show host (I have no plans to do either).
6.  My wife wants me to write Romance Novels.
7.  I had braces PUT ON my teeth when I was 19.
8.  I am a big fan of wedgies (giving them)-----just not for a long time.
9.  I never had a 'girls are icky' stage.  I practiced 'my look' in the mirror for hours the night before my 1st day of Kindergarten.
10. I use analogies in essentially every discussion/ debate topic I'm in-----especially at work in meetings.  Sometimes they're ridiculous-------but most people love them.

6. I have been a nail biter for 40+ years

1. Although my wife always thinks I'm kidding, I honestly believe that since I was young, I've always been attracted to Asian women because I watched so many Godzilla movies.  (although my wife is from the Philippines, not Japan.)
2. Although I like the smell of it brewing, I hate coffee.  (I drink diet Coke like it's water though.)
3. I apparently have a "twin" at one of the local flea markets that sells old coins.  On many occasions people have started to chat with me thinking that I was this other guy.
4. I've tried to learn the flute,piano, and guitar and failed at all three.  The only thing I CAN play is the radio.
5. Growing up, I never had much of an interest at all in westerns and war movies.  In recent years though, I've been watching them a lot.
6. When I was a kid, I would only eat the crust from pizza and spaghetti with butter and cheese.  I wouldn't go near tomato sauce. That issue is long gone and could easily eat pizza daily.
7. Prefer the the Monkees over the Beatles.
8. I don't care for NOSFERATU, Laurel & Hardy, pineapple, or watching sports (except for the Olympics every 4 years).
9. I have an extreme pet peeve of people that are so oblivious to the fact that they are blocking aisles with their shopping carts.
10. I have never ridden on a motorcycle, shot a real gun (other than a BB gun), or used drugs illegally (but I could tell quite a story about my one legal experience in Amsterdam in 1987).

04.  You don't understand. Every night when the moon is full, I turn into a wolf.
