My turn

I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Some people I know relatively well. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes spinach."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal, if you feel like it.

Heh, my nine-year-old likes to say that Eric Idle is his idol.

I have a small piece of paper with a heart drawn on it in crayon taped to the front of my monitor. epi_lj gave it to me when we were at a restaurant once with clawfoot and mtffm - it helps to remind me that I am loved.

That's sweet! I used to have a printout of an email that the OH sent to me, until my wallet got stolen.

I love to ice-skate, even though I'm terrible at it and fall down frequently to bash my head.

How do you feel about roller skating? I used to roller blade at Golden Gate Park on occasion. I was pretty bad at it, but also too cautious to bash my head.

i first started taking my dad to cleveland indians baseball games when i won a contest where i voted for rocky colavito as my favorite ballplayer. max alvis won, but the runner-up prize was tickets to a game. i was probably eight and i was *very* proud to be able to treat my dad to a game.

That is a lovely story!

Nest time I'm in Chicago during baseball season, let's go to a Cub game!

I performed in my first dance show when I was six. I performed the "Ballon Ballet" (yes, ballet with a ballon) and "Razzmatap" (tap). My grandfather took a great photo of me in the ballet piece and my grandparents gave me the framed shot a couple of years ago.

Hmm, I can see a balloon dance at Big Burlesque being very interesting...

1. I worked the night shift for years--consequently, I hate crowds. It was so nice being out during the day when everyone else was at work.

2. I have a fairly big scar on my right shoulder from falling down the steps when I was a little kid. I often forget I have it because I can't see it.

2a. I've had stiches three times--once because of surgery, but I've never broken anything (knock on wood).

3. Both my grandfathers were dead long before I came into the world.

4. I am a packrat.

5. I like a nice sip of green olive brine straight outta the jar every once in a while.

6. In addition to starting dance classes when I was three, I also attended drama classes, modeling school and "charm school" before I was 12.

7. Some of the crafty things I can do: sew, knit, crochet, tat, smock, bead, needlepoint, cross stich, embroider, quilt, and make ribbon flowers. The bad thing is, once I learn how to do something I usually move on to the next thing--so I have LOTS of unfinished projects.

8. I perform middle eastern dance for fun and profit.

I'm the same way about crafty things -- although I don't have lots of unfinished projects, since I tend to learn by doing small projects.

I was one of six children, although one of my sisters died when I was two.

To someone who grew up the only child in the house (my brother has Downs and never lived with us), that sounds like a lot of kids.

I'm discovering that I need a lot less reassurance from my husband when he's out on a date than vice-versa.

Me! I like spinach! And broccoli and cabbage. I need to buy vegetables.

Cook up some nice boiled cabbage for me (somewhere I can't smell it!)

This is the first of these I saw. Seems like a neat idea.

I've got a half-brother and a former step-brother, but basically grew up an only child of a single mom.

I find being tall to be far more handicap than advantage.

Why is being tall a handicap for you?

When I was young, my favorite toy was Bengali Tiger, a mechanical tiger of metal with cloth fur over most of its body and a rubber head, which you could make roar and walk with a contol pad attached by wires. I've occasionally searched for one on e-Bay, but the working ones are about $100, and I can't quite bring myself to buy it.

That sounds wonderful. I hope your financial picture allows it to be an affordable expenditure soon!

Memes always put me into an existential crisis! Well here are two random things, anyway:

I was just trying to figure out how to make a cloak out of this cool black-with-blue-stars velvet blanket I have -- I guess I'll stop by the fabric store for some accessories on Thursday when I'll be in that area of town.

Of all the telekinetic powers in all the towns in all the world, why does mine seem to be limited to making things fall off shelves in grocery and other stores? I mean, what is the point in *that*?!?!?

Post a pic of the cloak!

I've seen things falling off of shelves in stores being very useful for taking out villains in action films.
