Ok, I guess I got tagged by Chris(and Ami) to list some facts about myself, so blame them for this.


  1. When I was in junior high I got into so many fights that I spent almost every saturday in saturday school. When you go you have to write a thousand word essay on why you're there. Since I wrote so many essays the teachers stopped making me do it and I became the sat. school teacher's aid, mostly helping other kids on the shitty old Tandy computers we had to write the essays on.
  2. One time I wardialed over ten thousand numbers looking for a modem. The only one I found that I could use was for the generator system of the hospital I worked at about a quarter mile from my house.
  3. Speaking of modems, the first "online" person I ever met was a woman from a poetry BBS called Emil's World I used to post to a lot. I was 18 and she came and sat on my lap at the mall. I was playing Santa Claus at the time.
  4. Speaking of Christmas, the one present I always wanted that I am still sad to this day about not getting was the G.I. Joe aircraft carrier. Man, that thing was so fucking awesome.
  5. In my application to Berkeley's physics program I wrote a letter that told about the time I affixed wings to my bike and rode it off the roof of my house. I got accepted but didn't end up going because it was too expensive for me. I made that bike story up anyway.
  6. I think a lot about the greatest food in the world, like what could I eat every day for the rest of my life. I do love pizza and burritos, but I gotta say Arby's Beef 'n Cheddars would probably win the prize.
  7. The only time I ever fractured a bone was when I was about nine and I was sliding down the rail of one of those spiral slides. A fat lady came barreling down after me and knocked me over the side. I fell and broke my wrist. Two things stand out about that time to me. One was that they ruined my favorite Star Wars shirt by getting plaster stuck on the sleeve. The other is that I wished I had broke my right wrist so I wouldn't have had to do homework.
  8. I have never travelled off of the north american continent, unless you count Jamaica.
  9. I have a motorcycle license but I haven't been on one for eight or nine years.
  10. I sweat like a hog in heat.


I'm going to take the cheap and easy Ami route and tag you ALL. Bwaha!

I never got the G.I. Joe aircraft carrier, either; but I swear to sweet little baby Jesus, if I still had my old Millenium Falcon, I might be playing with it right now.
