    50 Facts About You

    Same rules as on the old forum. 50 facts about you, random or otherwise. Whatever. This thread used to be dead popular. Lets see how it goes this time.

    My Facts.

    1. The best description of me ever was said by my art teacher. She said that I am "Consistently Inconsistent".
    2. My favourite book and movie is Lord of the Rings.
    3. I want to do lots of volunteering because it seems really worth it in comparison to what I'm doing just now.
    4. I have learned a lot about myself lately, and not all good things either.
    5. Practically minded I am not.
    6. I live and breath creativity. If I wasn't making something in some way I would go insane.
    7. I go to the studio between 8-8.30am and leave between 10-11pm.
    8. Out of all the pieces I have made in the last year I have only liked two.
    9. I am making a blanket that has Tatty Teddy stitched on it. He is an adorable bear.
    10. My boyfriend has to share the bed with a mountain of cuddly toys.
    11. I will be the (stereotypical) man in any relationship because I can't cook, I'm ok with mess and I can't see past my nose.
    12. If I ever have kids I pray that they won't be anything like me.
    13. Waxing is the way forward. I get waxed once a month which means I am all hairy and gross for one week or so leading up to it.
    14. I hate being hairy and gross, makes me feel dead self-conscious.
    15. I've got to the stage where I really think I am pretty in the face. Love my features.
    16. Shame about my body.
    17. Loosing weight has made me go down a cup size. This makes me sad.
    18. I have a house bunny called Braken and a demented dog called Pepsi. Both beautiful, yet very dumb animals!
    19. I have been on pf for 5 years in June. Isn't that scary?
    20. I plan to save up loads of money so I can go travelling and tell no one where I am going till I'm there.
    21. Lately I have noticed a lot of similarities between me and my boyfriend. Its weird yet very comforting.
    22. I have a book with millions of quotations I want tattooed on me. So I can carry my moral code around with me.
    23. The only tattooed image I have ever wanted on me is a tree (which I am currently designing) to remind me that I can keep dreaming as long as I stay grounded.
    24. There is so much I want to do with my life, but I'm scared I'm going to stop myself for a number of reasons.
    25. I may not want my kids to be anything like me, but I do want kids. Just one, unless I have twins.
    26. My eyes and lips are the genetic traits I want passed down to my kids.
    27. I once got called a Nazi because I said i was fussy about who I had kids with because I want certain traits passed down.
    28. I freak out if anyone uses my embroiderer scissors for anything other than material and thread. I see them anywhere near paper and I will break knuckles *glares*
    29. Love is a weird concept to me. Trying to explain it in words is very difficult.
    30. I love my short blonde hair. Its rockin
    31. I show everything in my eyes. That is probably why they are so bright, because you can see all my emotions in my eyes.
    32. I find the lyric "lucky that my breasts are small and humble, so you don't confuse them with mountains" by Shakira (Whenever, Wherever) to be hysterical. Who wrote that?! Really :P
    33. Internet dating doesn't usually work and people should try meeting partners in reality first.
    34. The best relationships start with friendships.
    35. I am incredibly pro-choice, which is a real switch from a few years ago when I hated the idea of abortion.
    36. I'm ok with admitting I am wrong.
    37. I hate doing the wrong thing, it leads me into self-destruct mode.
    38. I always try and do the best thing for everyone else before doing the best thing for me. Which often leaves me feeling like crap, but I would feel worse if I looked after myself first.
    39. I don't like to limit myself career wise. I hate when people ask me what I want to do with my life because the answer will always be: "lots of things"
    40. In a past life I bet I was a cat! I'm lazy and like lots of attention :P
    41. Billy Connolly is a legend. FACT
    42. The other day I was thinking about when I get married and what I would like. I have a huge family but I don't want them all there. I'd have my mum, dad, two brothers, gran, grandad and my 3 best friends at my wedding. That is all I need.
    43. I had it pointed out by a certain member of pf that I type in Scottish! Lol. Love it.
    44. I say "bloody" a lot.
    45. I am a quotation sponge. I'll listen to a song once and I can sing it back to you. Read a book and I can quote parts back at you after one reading. Just a little thing I do.
    46. Still trying hard to find myself in this crazy head of mine. I'm a walking contradiction most of the time.
    47. You won't get a better friend than me. If you need me I'll be there ASAP. I am the glue like that. I fix everything.
    48. Working in catering makes me hate people.
    49. I'm a bit of an insomniac.
    50. I will do anything I possibly can to make the people I love happy.

    Re: 50 Facts About You

    Fuck...50...that's half of a metric shit-ton of facts. All about me, huh?

    1 - I live in Vegas
    2 - I'm a geek. No, really, been working on computers for fifteen fucking years
    3 - I appreciate the value of a well-placed swearword
    4 - I'm an Atheist
    5 - I have used the nickname "Roknrol" for over fifteen years
    6 - Spent 4 years in the US Army
    7 - Believe that cheese is the greatest food ever invented
    8 - Enjoy using words that are uncommon, but recognized
    9 - Enjoy harmless forms of social engineering
    10 - Thoroughly enjoy riding my motorcycles (when my body allows it)
    11 - Have more computers in my house than living creatures
    12 - One dog, six cats, five fish, one teenager, one wife.
    13 - Enjoy my own company more than pretty much anyone else's.
    14 - Find that as I get older, the longer I want to live. And life fucking sucks, so that proves "instinct" is still alive and well...
    15 - Had serious self-esteem issues until discovering the theater (and fans)
    16 - Currently have an ego the size of Texas (with fewer Mexicans - sorry Medusa )
    17 - Thoroughly enjoy a good Spoonerism. (What's the difference between a woman in church, and a woman in the bathtub?)
    18 - Discovered that weed resolves about 2/3 of my personality disorders (as well as the chronic back pain that it was legally prescribed for, of course )
    19 - Am really good at pretty much everything when I first start, but my curve isn't a very steep one, so despite all of my hobbies, the only thing I'm really good at is working on these technological marvels that cause me so much pain and anguish.
    20 - Feel that I've grown more as a person since becoming an Atheist (as well as more of an asshole, to be sure), and have finally - after decades of searching - found a grain of "hope".
    21 - I have recently learned that attempting to come up with 50 facts about myself in a short period of time sounds much easier than it actually is.
    22 - Despise corn in all but one of it's forms: Popped.
    23 - Loathe salad even more, although salad doesn't actually make me ill.
    24 - A well-placed question can fuck up my entire day
    25 - A well-placed compliment can restore it
    26 - I tend to not really give a shit about what other people think about me. It's far more important what *I* think of me.
    27 - I consider myself extremely moral, ethical, and fair (but I bet most people think that they are too)
    28 - Find it difficult to focus on just one thing - I have to have multiple stimuli to concentrate (which actually flies in the face of the studies done on the subject, however there were anomalies there too)
    29 - Am lousy at math, which is a tragedy because have found a great love of Physics, Astronomy, and similar nerd-learning
    30 - Was once shot
    31 - Moved to the city because I hated the country, but kinda sorta wanna get the fuck out of the city now...don't get excited Magus - the only thing that would get me to move back to the PNW is if my only other option were Texas.
    32 - Have a difficult time expressing feelings that aren't anger or mirth
    33 - Have found that 99% of the time that's all I need
    34 - Despite having a great love (and knowledge) of the English language, I'm never sure when I use a semi-colon if I'm using it right
    35 - Despite having a great hatred (and loathing) of dealing with people socially, I've found that I'm usually pretty fucking good at it
    36 - Enjoy doing things like that ^
    37 - Used to love the idea of ending my genetic line, but have occasionally wondered how a kid of mine would turn out...
    38 - Just noticed that I only have about 12 more to go (and am excited!)
    39 - Have discovered how important it is to live life, right when I find that I don't have enough time for it
    40 - Cannot find it in my heart to hate another person...that seems like too much effort for too little of a payoff to me.
    41 - Everyone gets one chance. If you fuck it up after that, you may well be on your own
    42 - Am viewed as being "cynical" to most of the people that know me (of course, I don't think that I am )
    43 - Feel more "chosen" since discovering that my mother's mother's mother was probably Jewish
    44 - Will retire at the earliest opportunity <-- meaning, I prefer jobs that aren't actually work
    45 - Will retire sooner, if at all possible
    46 - Greatest desire is to have my consciousness in-tact forever. I'll become the worlds first full-on as cyborgy as a cyborg can be cyborg if I'm ever wealthy enough to pull it off
    47 - (Wife's help: "You have hair that grows on the bridge of your nose") <- true, but it's not much
    48 - (Wife: "You have really good balance") <- ustacould, but since I've been gaining weight my balance has gotten worse (that's part of the reason I want to lose this fuckin' belly!!!)
    49 - (Wife: "Sometimes you giggle in your sleep. One time you said 'yaaaay!!!'") <- I have no idea if this is true, but I giggled when she told me about it
    50 - (Wife: "You're married to a hot nurse") <- This is very true as well

    <crosses fingers and hope his reply is the first> <-- if the site's down, just check back later

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    Re: 50 Facts About You

    1. I'm graduating college this weekend after a very challenging 4 years.
    2. I'm actually blonde, but some people think I'm brunette because I don't highlight my hair and they're used to bleached blondes.
    3. I'm really pale.
    4. I sunburn extremely easily and have given up on ever having a tan.
    5. But before I gave up, I got lots of sun scars on my shoulders, which are basically permanent freckles.
    6. However, I do not burn easily when cooking, even if I accidentally touch extremely hot (~400F) metal.

    14. I want to be a midwife and will be starting nursing school next year.
    15. I am a socialist.
    16. I vote Democratic, but they are often too conservative for my tastes.
    17. I believe most Americans have a warped idea of what it means to be conservative and liberal.
    18. I'm a pescetarian trying to go flexitarian.

    32. One of the highlights of my senior year in high school was tying for "most outstanding senior" in band with my best friend, as voted on by our classmates.
