Tell me more about _______?

RE: Tell me more about _______?
1. I'm 20 years old.

2. I'm not French...

3. I probably have the best drinking stories of anyone I know. Due in large part to the fact I'm a binge drinker. (What else are students supposed to do on the weekends?)

4. I'm pretty good at golf.

5. When I was younger I was a black belt at Tae Kwon Do. FYI it is useless in an actual fight.

RE: Tell me more about _______?
This sounds fun.
I had my first son when I was 23.
He was born on the 23rd Nov... also, it was the day I got my first paycheck.

I watched nightmare on elm street when I was 8.I got so scared that for the next year or so I'd go to bed and grab the sheets very tightly so I would not end up like Johnny Depp. Then I realized, on some internal level, that what's on the screen isn't real...Then I realized other stories weren't real too Wink

I watched aliens when I was 12 and compared it with the Ghostbusters...

RE: Tell me more about _______?
I was a pretty good hockey player until I got a bone tumor in my femur.

I've had more than a dozen major operations on that leg.

I still have the leg and can walk, skate, golf, ride a bike, ...

I don't drink and I've just quit smoking.

I'm single, my favorite colour is blue, I like walks on the beach, ... Tongue

RE: Tell me more about _______?
I was born on The Outer Banks of NC.

My house is full of critters; three dogs, two parrots, and one kitten.

I suck at math but work as a bookkeeper.

In May I will finally have a two-year college degree; in June I will turn 57.

I like all kinds of music, my favorite color is blue, I like to sew and read and swim in my pool.

Once upon a time I was a Catholic school girl.

I've had stitches four times, including when I severed the tendon in the ring finger on my right hand.

When I was 14, I covered my hand in rubber cement and lit it on fire.

I got a 35 on the math section of the ACT(for those who don't know, the ACT is a college acceptance exam and a 36 is a perfect score).

One of my favorite memories is taking LSD with a bunch of my friends out in the country at a bonfire and seeing the Northern Lights.

RE: Tell me more about _______?
1. I have several mental disorders. I was diagnosed with Hyperlexia, an autism spectrum disorder, at an early age. (Fun Fact: I taught myself to read before I could speak my own sentences.) Now, I have something else; my therapist, on her patient sheets, says it's "adjustment disorder with anxiety and/or depressed mood." I think it's likely a combination of dysthymia (the telltale relatively low-grade symptoms, but extreme treatment resistance is there) and PTSD (grade school was like a Vietnam War novel written by Franz Kafka. That is all.)

2. I think I've brought this up before, but I have a foot fetish. Combined with the social awkwardness I have from my disorders and the relatively poor treatment of foot fetishism in media, this makes finding a girlfriend quite difficult. The only girl who has responded positively to my fetish turned out to be a lesbian.

3. When I was six, I had an IQ test, and apparently my IQ was 176 (FWIW, the best guess we have is that it was a Weschler Test with an SD of 15.) No doubt, since child and adult IQs are calculated differently, it's not the same as it was then.

4. Around the age of twelve, I resolved to grow a beard just like Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top; By the time I was 14, I had to shave what little progress I'd made due to my school's dress code. I started back up as soon as I graduated. Sadly, due to poor genetics, in the five and a half years since, my beard may never reach Billy Gibbons length, but, maybe in a few years, it may reach Fyodor Dostoevsky length.

5. Due to my beard, and my living in Skokie, the Holocaust Survivor Capital of the World, people have mistakenly assumed I'm Jewish. In fact, my general look actually led to my having a criminology teacher go for an entire semester calling me "Fiddler on the Roof."

6. I once worked on a novella called Rubies under the supervision of two-time Oprah's Book Club author Jane Hamilton. It's about sex slavery, incest, psychosis, and cannibalism. Despite my fears, she was not fazed by it.

7. The living man I would most like to meet is Werner Herzog. I'm writing him into my novel.

8. I take credit for messing with the mind of a teacher I had in high school enough that he turned into a pedophile. Sadly, he was probably a pedophile before I took his class.

9. Strangely, innocuous sources have brought me into trouble. Talking about Pat Boone in leather horrified my grade school teacher, and, years later, a story loosely inspired by Roald Dahl short story spooked another teacher enough that I was forced to have mental health treatment.

10. I have yet to get my driver's license; until recently, I feared the possibility of doing what Willy Lohman did at the end of Death of a Salesman.

I get flirty and talkative when I drink.

I've been to the Indy 500 (1989).

I've seen Punky Brewster in person.

I dunno. Not sure what to say.

RE: Tell me more about _______?
Oh!! Oh!! That reminds me of one, if we're sharing Stupid Celebrity Encounters!!

I once rather rudely shoved Davy Jones of the Monkees out of the way to grab a birthday card I had my eye on. He'd been loitering around the same card section as me and was oblivious to (more probably, ignoring) my more subtle attempts to get him to move out of the way. And I was in a hurry.

In my defense, I didn't know it was him and the store clerk had to tell me.

If I'd have known, I'd have shoved harder.

I can't believe I ever crushed on her as a kid.
