1. I’m completely ambidexterous.  I didn’t realize it until I was teaching in university and my arm got tired while I was writing on the white board, so I switched hands and one of my students at the back yelled out about it. I have always just done things with both hands (I can bat, throw, golf, etc. with both arms – I drive right but I putt left.) 

2. I speak 3 languages.  I pick up languages very quickly.  I can read and understand several other languages that I don’t actually speak. 

3. I love sci-fi stuff.  My dad always watched Star Trek when I was a kid.  I’m hooked.  I love dystopian future type stuff. 

4. I was a competitive swimmer, lifeguard, SFA instructor, etc. I love the water. 

5. I am a sport fanatic.  I will play just about anything.  I love sports and I’m very athletic.  

6. I’m the only person in my family with green eyes.  Everyone else has bright blue. 

7. I am a complete nerd.  I need to know how things work and why things happen.  I will take just about anything apart to see the inside workings.  I can waste hours upon hours on the internet researching random stuff.  

8. I have synesthesia.  So does 1 out of every 23 people.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I think its weird that other people don’t. 

9. I have an awesome memory.  If I’ve read it, I’ll remember it, likely word for word as it was written.  I can recall conversations verbatim (and I’m often taped, so its easy to verify – pull the transcript.) 

10. I cannot dance.  I look like a baby giraffe on rollerskates.  It’s dangerous for anyone to be around me when I try.  The music moves me, but it moves me in ugly, uncoordinated ways!

@Firemansgirl:  It was New Years eve turning 2000. It was quite late and was just at a friends house settling in for the night. One of the fellows happened to be paranoid schizophrenic but it had just recently surfaced and we didn’t yet realize the severity of his situation. We all wanted to go to bed but he wanted to stay up and talk. He woke me up off the couch with the butt of the rifle he had taken from his dads gun cabinet. Shit got pretty serious, he tried to shoot one of the other girls but missed. He ripped the phone out of the wall so we couldn’t call anyone. There were 3 of us and him. The guy that was being held with us ran out of the house during a scuffle and called the cops. It was pretty intense. He would hold the gun up to your head and ask what you thought would happen if he pulled the trigger. Luckily, about 4 hours into it (by then, surrounded by many, many cops and swat teams) he decided to let us go. He was just a very sick young man who needed a lot of help

1) I was born 3 months pre-mature, weighing 1lb, 13oz.

2) I love graphic design, and want to open an Etsy shop, but I don’t feel talented enough. I’ve thought about going back to school to formally ‘train’, but I’m also too afraid to do-so… in case I suck.

3) I’m 31, and have never driven a day in my life. Although I’ve never been in an accident, I have HORRIBLE anxiety, and vomit if I even sit in the driver’s seat (not even buckled in, or attempting anything). I don’t even do go-karts or bumper cars.

4) I eat candies only after separating them by colour.

5) Much like candies, I eat food separately… usually starch, then veg, then meat.

6) I prefer vanilla over chocolate for cake or ice cream, although I love chocolate bars and other candies.

7) I can’t choose a favourite colour, but tend to gravitate towards purples and teals.

8) Ever since my middle sister was born, I’ve always wanted to grow up and have 2 girls. DH and I have a 9-year-old DD, and I recently miscarried (early on). I’m hoping if we conceive again, I’ll get my second Princess.

9) DH and I got married after a long 11 1/2 years together. I still hold some resentment that he made me wait so long. Same goes for waiting so long to have another child… and for freaking about the latest pregnancy. But, I digress.

10) I was raised by a single father, and don’t talk to my mother at all. She was present at my wedding, but deliberately missed out on most big events (dress, hair/make-up, the reception, etc.). I don’t miss her.

4.  I speak Spanish, English, and Portuguese.  

5.  I am a lawyer

6.  I LOVE fried plantains

9. I love to travel, and my dream vacation would be Thailand/Singapore/Malaysia/Cambodia.  

10.  I am very judgmental.

1) I went though treatment for anorexia, and then treatment for bulimia three years later.

2) I can play any and every woodwind instrument out there. I specialize in oboe, clarinet, and bassoon, though.

3) I didn’t learn to ride a bike until 7th grade (age 13)

4) I didn’t lose my last tooth until my senior year of high school, and it didn’t grow in until I was 21.

6) I can say all 66 books of the Bible in order, in less than 30 seconds.

7) I am fluent in American Sign Language

@allyfally:  I love it, it’s neat to see little snapshots of people.

1.  The feel of makeup creeps me out so I only wore it in middle school a short time to be able to say to my mom “See, I tried it, still hate it.” (I didn’t even like my face painted as a kid).

2.  I’ve never dyed my hair.

3.  If it has words I’ll read it.  Book, leaflet, random terms and conditions, whatever.

4.  I have very vivid color dreams that are best explained as bad B rated movies that go on for weeks, they just pick up where they left off each night.  The OMG this is so stupid, I wonder what happens next type movies.

5.  When I was a toddler my parents say I dreamed I had a yellow rubber duck, because I woke up and went to look for it in the bathroom, it wasn’t there and I had a melt down wanting my yellow rubber ducky… apparently I was so certain that I had one after a few days they bought one just to shut me up.  And I didn’t grow up in a home where you got stuff just to shut you up, normally it had the opposite effect!

6.  If it can be organized and it’s in my house It’s organized.  Not like OCD (people tease me and I’m like no, that is very different… because I don’t want what they go through to be minimized or mocked.), I actually enjoy the process of figuring out and organizing how things work together or fit best, etc..  Or if I’m bored somewhere (work or at a friend’s place who thinks it’s cool) I’ll organize things.  Stressed out mommies love this I’ve learned ๐Ÿ™‚  “Do you mind if I fold these towels/put these toys away/alphabetize your movies?”… “Mind!? haha… Please!!!  Can you stay for dinner?  Have a go at my closet?”

7.  I moved 800 miles from home just because. Really just because.  No job, no school, no one I knew, to a more or less random place (I had a few criteria like public transportation).  I later learned both my grandmother and mother did the same thing but they only lived away for a couple years each before returning to their home city… me, I grew roots.

8.  My parents followed me when my dad retired.  And two of my high school friends work for a company based where I live so I get to see them several times a year.

9.  I know public speaking is a very valuable skill, but I have absolutely no interest in developing that skill.  ETA:  I don’t get panicky, I’m not shy, I just don’t want to, at all, period.

10.  I only use one eye at a time, but both work fine, and I can switch which I’m looking out of at will.

1. I’m pretty liberal, but I’m actually a registered Republican.

2. My favorite color since I was a toddler has been purple. I used to dress in head to toe purple clothes, shoes, socks, etc.

3. As a person, I think Justin Bieber is pretty horrible, but his music is a guilty pleasure.

4. When Lord of the Rings: Return of the King came out, I dressed up as a ringwraith to attend the cinema opening.

5. I loath cilantro. I can detect even the tiniest amount in a dish, and it ruins the whole things for me.

6. I get car sick EASILY. I’ve even felt ill when driving myself up a mountain.

7. Growing up I wanted to be a movie director. I had a crazy good imagination and the storylines I came up with were awesome.

8. I played softball for nine years in my youth.

9. Brussels sprouts are my favorite vegetable.

10. Growing up I had a pet goat who was bottle fed and raised in the house. She thought she was a dog. Eventually she got kicked out into the field, but she still 100% believed she was a dog.

(1) I will be done with my MA in literature next month. I’m an Arthurian specialist. 

(2) My bird calls me “pretty bird” and says “I love you.” I feel very fortunate.

(3) About a year ago, I made the decision to adopt a maltese/chihuahua mix from a woman who had too many dogs, children, and an absuvie husband. I promised her that I would take good care of him. I am so in love with this little creature and I can’t imagine my life without him. 

(4) I am working on getting certified as a yoga instructor.

(5) I could sleep recreationally. Seriously. 

(6) I am allergic to wool, so finding sweaters in stores this time of year is next to impossible!

(7) My fiance and I are taking ballroom dancing lessons in anticipation of our wedding. He is SO into it. It’s really cute of him and fun for us to do together. 

(8) I hate hypocrites. I remember when I moved to NC in sixth grade one of my classmates informed me that I was going to hell because I wasn’t a Christian. That same day she told me about how she enjoyed putting goldfish in soapy water and watching them die. So much for respecting god’s creatures. 

(9) I had breast reduction surgery last year at age 22. It has completely changed the way I see myself (for the better!)

(10) I can’t leave my house without hand lotion and chapstick. Not having these things with me makes me anxious. I can’t stand the feeling of chapped lips and dry hands.

1. I don’t watch tv. If I do, it’s got to be a show I REALLY love [In the past 10 years, there have been 3 shows I love watching : Dexter, Nip/Tuck & Bones].

2. I don’t eat anything with skin or bones. Give me a piece of boneless chicken and I’ll chow down.. but ONLY if it’s boneless.

3. I love almost ALL fruits & veggies. The exceptions are exotic fruits [starfruit? ew], and asparagus. Broccoli is my favorite and I like to eat the green

4. My favorite animal is a cow. I have 2 pillow pet cows that I sleep with every night. I also have a cow tattoo on my foot [cartoon cow].

5. Speaking of tattoos, they tickle me. When I got my back tattoo the guy had to stop multiple times because I would burst out in laughter.

6. It takes me a LONG time to make a purchase. When I find a purse I like, I won’t buy it. I’ll watch it. In a few months if I still like it, I’ll purchase it. I’ve cut down on alot of impulse spending this way.

7. My job means alot to me, I’ve been working at my company for 11 years [I’m currently 26].

8. I LOVE LOVE LOVE arcade games, esp. claw machines. If it’s within my vision, I’ll play it!

9. I love small town festivals, and even more when there are funnel cakes.

10. I love love love dave & busters.

@allyfally:  Haha, I always got teased too.

DH likes to say:  “Here, you’ll like this it has words.”.  Or on the rare ocassion we stop for fast foot he’ll check which side of the tray liner has more writing on it, have it face up, and then turn it to face me… he doesn’t say a word just does it cause he’s usually carrying the tray.  It’s like an unspoken division of food and “here’s your words”. ๐Ÿ™‚

1. I very much want to get married one day, but I never want to be a mother.  I would harm myself if forced to be a mother.

2. I will probably never be able to get married because my limitless self-loathing prevents me from accepting that any quality person would ever care for me.

3. I hope to become a permanent expatriate.

4. I will not associate closely with someone if I don’t respect his/her aesthetic judgment.

5. I despise camping–or any other activities meant to mimic “roughing it.”

6. I strongly considered–and had talent for–both computer science and geology, but chose a humanistic discipline for my BA and Ph.D. instead.

7. My favorite planet is Saturn. 

8. Don Giovanni is my favorite opera; I love opera in general.

9. I have not particularly enjoyed most of the Broadway shows that I have seen.

10. This was hard because I am a very secretive person.
