About

Random is my specialty, so I might as well make good use of it.

  1. I have two tattoos and regret them both but I still think I’d like more.

  2. I broke my foot in three places once due to clumsy walking and I didn’t cry from pain, I cried because I thought I disappointed someone.

  3. Middle child and the syndrome is alive and well.

  4. The last movie I saw in a theater was Titanic.

  5. In times of stress, I prefer to be alone and distance myself from friends.

  6. I will only tell friends my personal problems after I already have the solution.

  7. I obviously have issues with burdening others.

  8. Leary of most but I give second chances.

  9. I admit to overusing commas.

  10. Can play the piano but not as well as I used to and I’m too embarrassed to play in front of others.

  11. I have a huge problem with anything wet, slick or slimy on my fingers and hands. Lotion and hair conditioner are included and I try to do those tasks as quick as possible.

  12. I have a knack for remembering random numbers and forgetting birthdays. It is nothing personal.

  13. “Please” is my favorite word. What can I say? I’m a nice girl.

  14. “Buttock” is my least favorite because it makes feel ridiculous when I say it.

  15. When startled or scared badly enough, I sometimes blurt out “motherfuckerjesus!!” and it isn’t something I think about. It happens and is guaranteed to offend many. Sorry for that.

  16. Extremely hard on myself if I consider anything I’ve done a “failure”, and it just so happens that I consider most things I’ve done as failed or not good enough, so that’s fun.

  17. Quiet but not shy.

  18. With the exception of once with my sister, I have never been in a fist fight.

  19. Sharp tongue when needed and it will cut a bitch. Instances are rare.

  20. Extremely mild-tempered. I’m difficult to anger and impossible to offend.

  21. It annoys me if handshakes are weak and when people avoid eye contact.

  22. Asking for help is out of the question.

  23. I laugh at inappropriate times, especially with movies. Example: I consider Grizzly Man to be a great comedy even though IMDB describes it as “A devastating and heartrending take.” I now hang my head in shame.

  24. Been told by persons inside and out of my family that I am the only one in it who “makes any sense.” This is not a good sign.

  25. Tend to be the mediator during stressful times.

  26. Having a wilder youth than most of the people I knew back then, by the time I turned 18 I decided that boring is ten times better than being crazy. Lost a few friends in the process but I do not have any regrets – they, on the other hand, have seen the inside of a jail cell. I think I came out on the winning side of things.

  27. Never dated anyone my age or younger. The age difference has usually been between 2-10 years, with a couple exceptions having an even greater difference, but nothing disgusting.

  28. I don’t like horror movies because I don’t like being scared. Pretty simple.

  29. A poke in the ribs is likely to be life threatening to the poker.

  30. I have dark brown eyes and auburn hair. The rumor is that I should be able to tan with that combination, but this is completely false. I am honky white.

  31. Native American (Blackfoot), German and French descent.

  32. I’m a big fan of music, especially of the Indie variety and some of my favorite bands/artists are: Will Oldham, Songs: Ohia, Cat Power, Smog, Nina Simone, Rachels, Low, Amalgamated Sons Of Rest, Scout Niblett, and all sorts of Top 40s/Chart music.

  33. I am not pretentious and I hate music snobs.

  34. I can’t parallel park.

  35. Love roller coasters, but I’m afraid of the ferris wheel. It’s a trust thing – I’m always 99.9% positive the other person will rock the seat, and that terrifies me.

  36. Drink of choice is vodka. Straight.

  37. I rarely drink alcohol.

  38. I love cleaning and doing laundry, but I hate washing dishes and folding clothes. I’d rather let them pile in the sink and throw the clean clothes in a pile than mess with it.

  39. I love taking pictures and wish I was better at it.

  40. I haven’t let anyone take my picture in over ten years. Except that one time, when vodka was involved.

  41. I’ve never gotten lost while driving – I always find my way.

  42. I’m the world’s worst at accepting compliments.

  43. I love old photos and maps.

  44. Frequently startle people due to quiet walking. I blame all the ballet lessons as a kid, it made me light on my feet.

  45. Right-handed.

  46. My teeth are naturally straight, and if it weren’t for having three cavities in my life, my teeth would be perfect.

  47. I don’t eat eggs, unless they are a part of a recipe and I can’t watch people eat runny eggs. That’s disgusting.

  48. Never understood the fascination with stuffed animals and barbie dolls. My Dad used to surround my bed with stuffed animals before I went to sleep because he thought it would comfort me in case I thought of monsters, but I would have nightmares of the stuffed lion coming alive and chasing me down the hallway.

  49. I never told him that because I figured it was more important to let him think he was helping.

  50. I can rarely get to sleep these days without sleeping pills.

  51. My Grandma used to let me eat coffee grinds when I visited. I’m sure I was a joy to deal with afterwards.

  52. My hair was really curly when I was a kid, but it relaxed itself to wavy as I grew up.

  53. The first song I learned to play on the piano was “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys.

  54. I have a fear of tornadoes and dream of them often.

  55. I haven’t eaten a good homemade biscuit since my Grandma died.

  56. I’ll always remember that I was wearing a red shirt when I received my first love note. I’ll remember it because the letter read, “I want to kiss your red back.” I was 6, he was 8, and it was written in red crayon.

  57. With books, I read the last page, then start at the beginning. For me, it isn’t the ending that counts, it’s how you get there.

  58. I like the smell of new books, new plastic dolls, and gasoline.

  59. I have a younger brother named James Taylor, but he died during birth. He would have been three years younger than me, and it makes me sad to think of how much I would like to know him today.

  60. I feel guilty when I say I have three siblings, because I always leave him out, and that seems wrong to me.

  61. I hate starting sentences with “I” because it seems too self-important.

  62. There’s a children’s book, the title I can’t remember, that has an illustration of a lady flying across the sky with her arms out and as she’s flying she cloaks the sky in darkness and turns it into night. I think of her when I see the sun setting.

  63. I’m not ticklish.

  64. I can’t eat meat if the bone is still attached. It weirds me out.

  65. I smile at complete strangers on a regular basis.

  66. I hate websites that change the look of my cursor.

  67. I don’t wear glasses and I don’t need them. Yet.

  68. My first car was a black 1986 Jaguar XJ6, and although I’m sure it was rad back when it was new, it was a piece of shit when I had it.

  69. Pro-Gay Marriage.

  70. Pro-Choice.

  71. Anti-Asshole.

  72. Agnostic.

  73. Starting to firmly believe this list will never make it to 100.

  74. Used to be afraid of dogs after having a less than pleasant experience as a child with a Chow nearly clawing my older sister’s eyes out. My only memory of it was of us watching cartoons with the dog between us and looking over at my sister with blood dripping from her eyes, like she was a Virgin Mary statue. Cujo came out the same year.

  75. I have a dog, named Wally, that is a Japanese Chin. He is sexually attracted to male cats. Talk about having an identity crisis.

  76. I also have two male cats, The Hoff and Kittenfish, a female cat named Henry and a leopard gecko named Jerry.

  77. I would count the bird that made a nest in my garage two years ago and never left, but I don’t actually feed it. I just say hello in passing.

  78. I pronounce almonds as Al-monds instead of ALL-monds. It’s something that stuck after having a British Ex. I will sooner die than pronounce aluminum as al-you-minnie-um, though. It is ah-lum-ih-num.
  79. I have seen the Godfather (parts 1 & 2) so many times that I nearly had the script memorized. Best movies EVER, and I’ll fight anyone who disagrees. Bring it, bitches.

  80. If I’m a passenger in your car, and you don’t even try to avoid hitting an already dead animal, I will tell you how disrespectful you are. Unless you didn’t see it, or you’d have to kill us in order to escape it, you should have a little decency.

  81. All the women in my family that have dark brown eyes have, over time, developed a blue rim around the brown. The older the women get, the bluer their eyes become. I noticed a faint blue rim around mine sometime within the last year and the internet tells me it could be cataracts or cholesterol buildup. It could also be that the internet is telling me lies because my eyesight is perfect and my cholesterol levels are healthy. Go ahead, ask my doctor.
  82. Reading things I’ve written here in the past gives me a nauseating feeling. Rest assured, this very sentence will make me feel sick one day. You do not suffer alone.

  83. Most people who find me to be interesting usually grow tired and bored of me pretty fast. I’m always amazed at the few who don’t.

  84. I love a big, fat, juicy secret. I wish people would tell me more of them.

    interesting “about me” page…. :)

  • 3. Elbert West  |  May 7, 2007 at 11:31 am

    Great page! You’re magnetic and inspiring. I participate in the blogosphere to be inspired, so thank you:)

  • 4. dreamer  |  May 20, 2007 at 11:59 am

    Strange many of your characteristics apply to me!

  • 5. Jason P.  |  May 21, 2007 at 6:02 pm

    Very funny list. You should try writing for a living…Later.

  • 6. fishslayer  |  May 25, 2007 at 2:56 am

    fun to read, I have never been on this web site before and you were my first “read”. you might say you were my first.

    man it was great.

    have fun kiddo.

  • 7. Amrit Hallan  |  June 2, 2007 at 3:13 pm

    Engaging, comprehensive profile. Loved going through what you’ve written on this page :-). It’s been a long time I came to read a totally new blog, and in fact I’m looking for new bloggers to interact with because for almost two years I’ve been blogging without much interaction with other bloggers.

  • 8. ryan  |  June 12, 2007 at 8:49 am

    I’ve been coming here for a while now and never read this section. Anyway, Will Oldham and Songs: Ohia are two of my favorites. Congrats on your good taste. ; )

  • 9. Stranger  |  June 12, 2007 at 3:04 pm

    Yay for Will Oldham & Jason Molina!

  • 10. Jagadish  |  June 22, 2007 at 6:40 am

    I gave up at 50.. but still quite a list.

    My fav.. “A poke in the ribs is likely to be life threatening to the poker.”

    I’m a compulsive poker :D

  • 11. brian  |  June 24, 2007 at 2:05 pm

    I read the last page first, too. It’s a compulsion. I usually feel guilty after.

  • 12. Stranger  |  June 24, 2007 at 2:13 pm

    It really is a compulsion. I don’t know about you, but I usually forget all about the last page by the time I read through the book.

  • 13. brian  |  June 24, 2007 at 3:24 pm

    If I remember it at all it only adds another layer of satisfaction at having finished the book. But yes, I actually have an atrocious memory, so I don’t often remember.

  • 14. criminyjicket  |  June 27, 2007 at 9:53 pm

    well now that I know ABSOLUTELY everything there is to know about you I’ll just have to spend the next several hours talking about me.

    that was interesting

  • 15. Stranger  |  June 27, 2007 at 9:59 pm

    Let it rip, Criminy. I’m all ears.

  • 16. criminyjicket  |  June 28, 2007 at 5:34 pm

    i have done so…its on my about. I only got to 27. I suffer ADD when talking about me

  • 17. Goldy  |  June 28, 2007 at 10:37 pm

    For some reason I am dying to see a picture. Great “about me” page.

  • 18. Stranger  |  June 28, 2007 at 10:44 pm

    Thanks, Goldy. :)

  • 19. Hernan  |  June 29, 2007 at 8:56 pm

    Hey, it says me too much about you.

    I agree in the points #5 and #6, right this moment I´m doing that.

    Number 37, yes, rarely I drink alcohol, just occasionally, I like other stuff :p

    Number 56, I love godfather tooo, I don´t like the third part so much, but well… I love the way of look of Brigit Fonda. When I want to take my over doze of The Godfather I like to watch the part one and two ´cause they works like a entire one movie, don´t you think?

  • 20. Hernan  |  June 29, 2007 at 9:54 pm

    Sorry sorry, I made a mistake, Number 79 is for Godfather.

    Number 66, yes I HATE that kind of websites that change the cursor. It takes too much time to load and sometimes it crash my browser. It should be considerate as a “online crime”, don´t you think?

  • 21. Stranger  |  June 29, 2007 at 9:58 pm

    Hernan – I actually liked Godfather III, but only because it completes the story. Al Pacino is beyond awesome.

  • 22. Hernan  |  June 29, 2007 at 10:12 pm

    He he, before Mario Puzo death, he was planning The Godfather IV…I wondering how was it. I think Michael Corleone was conserved on a cryogenic tube, LOL…kidding.

  • 23. Richard Morgan  |  July 4, 2007 at 11:48 pm

    There’s a fight brewing. Best movie ever — SERENDIPITY. Yeah, I’m the only moron in the entire universe who believes that but let me tell you — predestination movies definitely rock my world. Having said that, let me explain that I hate “rock my world” statements. Matter of fact, if anyone reading this hears me utter “rock my world” and we’re in physical proximity, feel free to pick up a brick and hit me upside the head, prompting me to reply, even as I slip into unconsciousness, “Well, that takes care of that…”

  • 24. Wengistein  |  July 8, 2007 at 11:49 am

    Don’t want to be anal, but you seemed to have missed no. 60 to 69… LOL 69 LOLOLZ!!11!11!!!

  • 25. Stranger  |  July 8, 2007 at 11:53 am

    Oh NOES!!

    Actually, It’s just the spacing of this template that’s fucking the numbers up. I would never forget 69!

  • 26. Wengistein  |  July 8, 2007 at 12:09 pm

    Especially during the teenager years… 69 is in its prime! RAWR!

    The way you’ve got a random list and then a “contact” tab reminds me a lot of how I used to set out my older blog (which is now obsolete).

    With the “Contact” tab I wrote something like this:

    “You can email me about questions but make sure you read the FAQ [in this case, the random list].

    [enter email here] is my MSN and it’s faster because you’ll get your questions answered faster. That’s if I’m not out goat hunting, that is.”

    Good ol’ days.

  • 27. Stranger  |  July 8, 2007 at 12:13 pm

    Those goddamn goats will get you every time.

    Maybe I saw your old blog and found it so great that I unknowingly stole your style. Thanks for the inspiration, if that’s the case!

  • 28. Wengistein  |  July 8, 2007 at 12:21 pm

    I love it when I feel important.

  • 29. Stranger  |  July 8, 2007 at 12:25 pm

    Aww, yeah.

    Think of my contact page as one of your many important contributions to the world.

  • 30. Wengistein  |  July 8, 2007 at 12:32 pm

    It’s too bad though, because no one would understand, the number reason for that is because of the idiots we have to sit/stand next to EVERYWHERE! (X-Files theme song plays).

    Anywho, I watched that video you posted with Clay Aiken… zOMG, dear Lord and Mother Mary, my eardrums burst with those screams.

  • 31. Stranger  |  July 8, 2007 at 12:46 pm

    I would have screamed too if I were there. With laughter.

  • 32. phish  |  July 17, 2007 at 9:49 am

    you have a lot to say about yourself. and i like all of it.
