Things You Probably Didn't Want To Know

Here are some arbitrary things about me that you may not have known:
  • I like argyle socks.
  • Even though it’s just a video game, I still can’t kill the innocent Little Sisters in Bioshock.  I’m too much of a softie.
  • I think my ADHD is more of a blessing than a curse.  It helps me make logical leaps and contributes to my creativity and sense of humor.  If you don't believe ADHD is real, spend a day with me and I'll convert you.
  • I am both a cat and a dog person.
  • I still feel like I am paying off debt in the karma department, and most likely will be the rest of my life.
  • Although I have opinions regarding government, I try to remain apolitical because I feel that anything besides a vote is a waste of my energy.
  • Softie though I may be, if I am ever in a situation where I see a man physically abuse his wife I will probably attack the man, no matter how large he is.
  • I don’t know if I have a real phobia of them, but spiders make me distinctly uncomfortable.
  • I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.  Okay, this isn’t true, but it’s one of the best lines ever written in a song.  Ever.
  • I don’t know as much as I’d like to, and I fear running out of curiosity.  As I recently told my niece, when you stop learning, you start dying.  Oh, thanks for inspiring this blog post, Felicia!
  • I actually considered killing one of my stepfathers when I was a kid.  I’m glad I didn’t.
  • I’m very proud of my sister.  She has overcome some big hurdles to become a wonderful mother and a fine person.
  • I miss my dad, my stepmom and my brothers.
  • No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get into opera.  I guess I’ll never be fully cultured.
  • If I could quit working today, I probably would.
  • No matter how much you hear me talking, I’m listening more.
  • I own eight watches.
  • I would like to be a lead singer for a band, but both my work ethic and my voice need work before that could ever happen.
  • Going to counseling was one of the best decisions I ever made.  If you haven’t gone, you should think about it.  Yeah, you should.  Stop arguing with me and just go.
  • I feel guilty about not shining my shoes.  I rarely shine my shoes.
  • I’m a little obsessive.  If I find a song or a video game or a movie I like, I will listen, play, or watch it again and again until I have it memorized.
  • I sometimes worry that people will think that I’m insincere, but I'm not.
  • I’m an optimist by nature and quite frankly can’t understand why anyone would want to see gloom and doom in everything.

I hope these little tidbits have given you a little more insight into who I am than you had before.  I feel a little awkward writing so much about myself but as I mentioned when I started this blog, this is as much about helping me to learn about myself as it is making observations about the world around me.  I’d love to read some little-known facts about you, too.  Feel free to comment.  Just remember that whatever you put on the internet is forever.


  1. I wouldn't change a thing. Not. One. Thing. (Except maybe live closer.)

  2. honestly rules.

    bigger than that- personal illuminato. it's beautiful thing.

  4. "I shot a man in Reno....." Indeed, a great line. Which brings me to what I often ask myself, "What Would Johnny Cash Do?" . You ROCK, like always!
