Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Both Eyes

Narcissism!  Why the heck not?

I was exorcised at my baptism.

I can recite the alphabet backward really fast.

Foods I think are icky:  Macaroni & cheese; marshmallows; beef stroganoff.  I don’t care for popcorn or chocolate either.

Pet peeves:  Tailgaters; apostrophe abuse; people who ask to use my “restroom.”  There’s a tub in there, so it’s a bathroom!

Things I refuse to do:  Wear high heels; use a credit card; consume animal products.

I am good at:  Cleaning house; reading aloud; packing a super-tiny suitcase; following a budget.

I am bad at:  Parking; doing math in my head; making confirmation calls.

I failed my driving test twice and didn’t get a license until I was 29.

I’ve walked over 680 miles this year and plan to reach 1000 by year’s end.

I’m on a first-name basis with librarians at three branches.

I could cast a horoscope and do a Tarot reading by the time I was 12, thanks to a rather singular upbringing.

I can also ride a unicycle a few feet, read a bit of Japanese, and use chopsticks with either hand.

I’m a member of Mensa.

While I plan to read 500 books this year, it’s not the first time I’ve committed to doing a stunt and it probably won’t be the last.  The secret is making written goals.

Anyway, that’s me.  Hopefully that satisfies everyone’s Random BS quota for the day.

  1. I refuse to wear high heels, myself. They make my feet hurt. I don’t need that. You can pedal a unicycle? pretty cool!

  2. My son is 25 and doesn’t have his driver’s license yet. (Lives in DC, has good public transit, can get along without it.) At this rate, his stepsister will beat him to it – she turns 16 next year and can’t wait to get hers.

    And somehow, I’m not surprised that you’re a Mensa member :-).

    Thanks for sharing all the fun facts!
