I was tagged by Lee Herrick and Aimee Nezhukumatathil to write 25 Random Things About Myself on Facebook, but was having trouble posting it in my notes so here it goes:

1. I have been to a Whitesnake concert.
2. I own a ninja suit.
3. My favorite ice cream flavor is coffee.
4. I took piano lessons for five years but hardly ever practiced.
5. I used to play tennis everyday but now I haven't played tennis for four years.
6. I used to think "Richard Stands" was an actual person and not the mispronunciation of "For which it stands."
7. I have almost 170 days of music on my iPod.
8. My 4-Runner is almost at 100,000 miles.
9. I still miss my little pug Rosie on occasion.
10. I want a new laptop.
11. I think I'm really good at installing tile and plumbing.
12. My favorite game on the Xbox is currently Fallout 3, but I haven't played for awhile.
13. I wrestled in High School at the 135lb weight class.
14. I once applied for a job working at a corn mill.
15. When I was 10, I spent all my hard-earned summer orchard money on Star Wars figurines.
16. I once drove from LA to Ontario, Oregon in one day.
17. I get a little nauseous before I read in front of an audience.
18. I had a small comic book collection which I've since given away.
19. During little league, I crawled to home and scored the game-winning run.
20. I was an EMT for 2 1/2 years in LA County.
21. I have never given anything up for Lent.
22. It's horrible, but I love corn beef hash for breakfast (I, of course, don't eat it all the time).
23. I got into a couple of fights on the playground in Catholic school.
24. I have the first few lines of the Canterbury Tales memorized in Old English.
25. I helped conduct NASA research on lab rats. It was horrible.

#25. I'm glad to hear it was horrible. If it turned out to be wonderful my whole concept of how the world works would be disrupted. Or at least my concept of how you work in the world maybe.


WV: deenhi

Some sort of lab rat worker argot for "hello" I should think.

Aye. Among the worst jobs I've ever had.

Deenhi to you too.
