10 things

Thursday, December 1st, 2005

1) List ten things you want to say to people but know you never will. (Note: this might be something you’d say to one person, but you mean it to someone else)
2) Don’t say who they are. (They don’t have to be anyone who would read this.)

and challenges her to grow as a leader.
– Alison needs you to volunteer to host a Coordination Group meeting in
the coming year.

– Alison needs to argue something like this: heat exchangers are not required, but when they do exist, then the Criteria require that one determine what happens when one fails.

Write 20 Random Facts About Yourself, Then Tag The Same Number Of People As Minutes It Takes You To Write The Facts. If You’re Tagged, It’s Your Turn.

Yeah, so I’m not gonna tag anyone else, but I will do the 20 facts bit.

1. People tell me that I seem very self-confident, when the truth is that I care too much what other people think of me and take most things very personally. I have the weird problem of thinking I’m smart but always thinking I’m wrong, etc. For that reason, I will state my opinion but will often not bother to debate it with people who believe differently.
2. My second toe is longer than my big toe. This means I’m royalty!
3. I am allergic to chemical sunscreen (I think you knew that).
4. My contacts are -13 diopters; my glasses are higher. I’ve been unable to see without correction since I was a toddler. My vision is bad enough that there are few contact brands made in my prescription and I can’t have corrective surgery (although there is a new process being developed that might work for me). My fear of actually being blind one day is based in reality! WOoo!
5. My family hates that my internet presence is so big.
6. I like mayo as the “browning element” of a grilled cheese sandwich better than butter (I think you knew that, too).
7. I sang a cover of a Del Amitri song once — as in, in a studio, with session musicians — but I don’t pass it around as much as I used to. If you really want to hear it, I’ll send it to you.
8. There is only one human being in the world that I really, truly despise. And, I save said feeling (really, truly despising) for people I know in real life. :) (Like, the President wouldn’t count, for example. Although I do pity da fool.)
9. I am a huge, huge, liberal. And very, very pro-choice. In fact, if I have to watch one more LDS pro-life commerical, there is a possibility of me kicking through the television all karate-like.
10. I have a Sega Master System (fave games: Fantasy Zone and Miracle Warriors), a Sega Dreamcast (fave games: Crazy Taxi and Rayman II), and an XBox (fave games: Psychonauts and Jade Empire). My fave PC games were all the RPGs from Lucas Arts (Secret of Monkey Island, Loom, Day o’ the Tentacle, etc).
11. I was in GATE (Gifted And Talented Education, a special smart-kids school program) and remedial money counting/time telling at the same time. I also failed handwriting in 2nd grade (aka received a U).
12. I miss pico but I like emacs well enough. I also hate that I don’t have shell access to and thus can’t use pine.
13. I had orthodontics from age 3-13 following a very bad accident caused by my sister (yet another thing you probably already knew).
14. I instantly failed the CA driver’s test the first time I took it for pulling out in front of a car that was speeding and thus making it brake. I then took it again and got a 100%. I think most people are retards behind the wheel and I’d like to be able to wave a sign at them stating my opinions. (For example, people in WI don’t seem to understand traffic circles and often turn left in them. They also drive below the speed limit and don’t realize that you don’t stop at a flashing yellow light.)
15. I love my puppies as much as if they were little humans and would try to save them before any material possession (including my computers).
16. I used to consider myself a tomboy and I still do, somewhat, even though I dress like a woman and have a giddy glee about getting married. *gleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*
17. Brandon is my bestest friend and the best person I know.
18. I’d be happy if I could live next door to my sissy and bro-in-law and perhaps down the street from my parents… although my dogs are wayyyyy cooler than Zoe, Chloe, Daisy, and Freddie.
19. I frickin’ LOVE sugar cereals, especially Cocoa Pebbles and Lucky Charms. I also like flavored Cream of Wheat way more than any oatmeal product.
20. I am a meticulous record keeper re: money and get a thrill every time my checkbook in Quicken balances. :)

Alibee in Cardiovascular Flagship
Bringing into question social barriers, this classic tale, set in the early Twenties, draws the viewer into the journey of partners, userinfoscrubbo (Tony Shalhoub) and userinfoalibee (Alicia Silverstone), who discover themselves chancing upon buried treasure because a destructive catalyst is dreamed up by her heartless sister, userinfocarolinebee (Bonnie Hunt). Nudity is kept to a tasteful zero.

…’cause I’m at work and you’re not. I can tell.


From userinfobleaknimue, list 3 things that bug you – things that others may find trivial:

1. Poor spelling and grammar. I can hardly EVER excuse it, either written or spoken. It will instantly make me think you’re moronic (unless it’s via IM, when we’re all rushing to type our crap as fast as possible).
2. Tricked-out Civics. Folk, let’s spend our money tricking out a nice car.
3. People who ride motorcycles or mopeds without full helmets and leathers. Or people who ride with shorts or t-shirts on. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
4. Women who are too skinny and the men who love them.
5. Puppies licking you nonstop.
6. People using my spigot.

sailing… takes me awayyyy (part 2)

Friday, June 24th, 2005

Of the five people in my class, only two of us — myself and Don — received our Tech light weather ratings. It was gorgeous on the water, although the wind was fairly unpredictable, and the most interesting thing happened as a result of our not having enough boats and my being paired with the guy who couldn’t swim.

See, in order to receive your rating, you need to capsize your boat completely and then right it. When it came time for us to capsize, my partner started flipping out because he was scared to get in the lake, so the teacher (Lauren) had to come over and tie up to us. I had him jump out into the lake (I figured it’d be less scary than falling in out of our tipping boat) and proceeded to do the capsize myself (pretty much hanging on to the hiking strap and leaning far over the water). Then the guy REALLY started to freak out and the teacher had to jump into the water and get him and calm him down. I managed to jump up, grab the centerboard, and use Lauren’s leg to hop up on the top (our boat was riding high because of all the air under the hull). As I started to right the boat (involving hanging onto the centerboard and sticking your butt out over the water), the guy was hanging onto the side that was going under the water (when we righted it one side needed to go through the water and pop up on the other side) and wouldn’t let go. We started yelling at him and his head (with hat) actually went under the water, at which point Lauren had to swim down and GRAB him to get him to release his grip.

So, needless to say, he didn’t receive his rating. :)

You know that anonymous meme where you leave confessions?

I’m not going to cut/paste the cheeseball “intro” — you know which one I’m talking about. So, if you want to confess something (to me, about me, not related to me), feel free… I’ll be turning anonymous commenting ON and IP logging OFF. :D

I finished them all!


Well, at least until userinfosqueakycheese‘s, because I’m sure one of you smartasses is going to comment there now.

Also, my phone is broken and doesn’t ring, which is making me onery. But at least userinfocapitalfellow can type fast. :)

g-ddamnit dave!

I must do this because userinfodakegra isn’t actually RESPONDING to the people who responded to his, thus affording me no entertainment. And the db is down.

1. Reply and I’ll write something about you.
2. I will then tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I will say something that only makes sense to you and me.
4. I will tell you my first memory of you.
5. I will tell you what animal you remind me of.
6. I’ll then tell you something that I’ve always wondered about you.
