Random Factoids

Well, because 'everybody's doing it lately, and because I want to toot my own horn on this rainy day, here's some random facts about me:

  1. I can type 100+ words a minute, with zero errors.
  2. I can change my own flat tire, by myself, thankyouverymuch.
  3. I cannot change my own oil. I wish I could.
  4. I will learn to ride my own motorcycle. Soon.
  5. I have experienced Hulk-like rage.
  6. I love vampire mythology.
  7. I have the worst vision of anyone I've ever met. The worst by a lot. I don't qualify for lasik surgery because of it.
  8. I used to hate my eye color until I realized few people have green eyes. Now I wouldn't trade them for any other color.
  9. I never met my own father.
  10. I may have 19 siblings. 18 of them by my father.
  11. I only know one sister.
  12. I hated my stepfather when I was growing up. I was happy my mom divorced him. Now I'm glad he's not in my life. He hated me, too.
  13. My ex-step father owns a fairly well known website, with hundreds of thousands of paying subscribers. I am not one of them.
  14. My husband is my high school sweetheart. All together now, AWWWWWW
  15. I have been to Monet's garden, and sketched in it. It was awesome.
  16. I have always been artistic, and have painted murals in every home I've lived in since I was 14.
  17. I have one tattoo. I designed it myself. You can't see it unless you ask nicely.
  18. I wanted to work at the zoo or become a vet, growing up. Now I work in corporate America.
  19. My office is so similar to Office Space it's scary. Down to a Milton with his stapler. I'm not kidding.
  20. I drank with my RA, freshman year at college. Sophomore year, I *was* the RA. I only busted one party, and it was because they were assholes, not because they were drinking underage. And they weren't even my residents.
  21. My dorm almost burned down because of a candle. It was mine.
  22. I don't regret anything I've done, unless it hurt someone I love. Then I can't forgive myself.
  23. I have no problems with nudity or swearing. Nudity is natural. Swearing only means what you allow it to mean. I have huge problems with violence. I don't think it's natural.
  24. I have two black labs, both rescues. I'd rather be around dogs than people.
  25. I am horrifically arachnophobic, but would stop you from killing a spider for no good reason.
  26. I've shot 7 different guns. An AR15, a few 9mms, a few 45s, and one 40. And I know how to field strip a Glock 17. I'm also a pretty damned good shot, with no official training.

All right, there you have it. I know it's not up to Katey's 50, but I'm just not that good. It took me a while to come up with these.

What happened to 15?

Oh, I think green eyes are S E X Y! But I like my wife's blue eyes, too!

Excellent stuff, Amy. It's a nice way to get to know someone. I'm really glad you shared.

Amy, These were really good! Now we all know you a little better. I did this once. Back in June on my Birthday I did 54 things.

I had to laugh at "I would rather be around dogs than people". I know just what you mean.
