for Chantal

Here are 6 random facts about me that you probably didn't know:

1. I'm a little bit superstitious. This is most evident in my computer-game playing. For instance, I won't change lanterns in Moria if my character has made it past a certain level because I'm afraid my luck with run out if I get a new lantern. It's irrational I know, but there you have it.

2. I have a compulsive habit of using the bathroom immediately before I go to bed. This started years ago when my mom told me that it might help reduce the frequency of my nightmares.

3. When I see a dog, I immediately start repeating in my head "I am not afraid of dogs. I am not afraid of dogs." It helps control my fear to some extent. One day in my first year of law school, I was walking home from the library after midnight on a Friday night, and I had to walk through a crazy loud frat party that was taking over the sidewalk. After I got past the partyers, I realized that I was repeating to myself "I am not afraid of boys. I am not afraid of boys." This made me laugh.

4. For as long as I can remember, I've always had at least one wart on one of my hands.

5. My favorite TV show of all time is Star Trek Voyager. I can't explain why. It just is.

6. My roommate says that my street name should be Random.

Cindy, you fascinate me.

Cindy said...

In what way? I think I'm pretty normal and boring.

todorojo said...

Well, I'll put it this way. Who else do you know that massages their ice cream with a spoon for five minutes before eating it?

When I was a kid we use to stir our ice cream until it was runny to see who's was the runniest. Is that like massaging it?

I simply like my ice cream to have a smooth consistency. So, I stir it until it's soft and smooth, but not until it's runny. I don't see anything strange about this.

For that matter, the only one of my six random facts that I think might be the slightest bit strange is fact #3, and that's a habit that started years ago and I don't even really think about any more.

So fascinating...

First of all, 10 points for your creativity on this one. I really struggled coming up with my six things. Adam still hasn't done it. I think he is convinced that he really is boring. I mean, just because you don't massage your ice cream doesn't mean you are completely normal - seriously.

My favorite one of yours is the 'I am not afraid of boys' part. I laughed out loud. How did I never hear that story?

Cindy,

We have a lot in common.

Dad,

Do you suppose that's due to nature or nurture? I mean, maybe you're the one who taught me to stir my icecream and like Star Trek. I don't think you taught me to be superstitious, though.

I would just like to point out that I've never written an ode to twistie ties.

You say that as if that's unusual.
