Wouldn't You Like To Know?  
Pillaged from calliopes_pen

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any old thing at all, the more trivial and fascinating, the better. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they have a giant birthmark shaped like a wildebeest on their right buttock."

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 and see what gems of knowledge appear.


No obligation to post it on your journal if you leave a comment. Pick the parts you want to do, the usual :)

Well... I have pointed canines. I mean, vampire pointed. And I was born with them, so I don't know what that means about me.

I like the smell of coffee, but not the taste. I like tea. I like Assam tea, specifically, and I usually drink it black.

I support computers for a law firm. There are numbers of jokes in that, but I promise not to recite them all at once.

I always wondered what your job was :)
dejladejla on December 19th, 2007 12:58 pm (UTC)
Hmm. Nursemaid, interpreter, unofficial psychologist--oh, yes, and I troubleshoot computer problems, too!

But I get paid well for putting up with attorneys and the occasional God complex.

I say my job is adult daycare some days [g]

.they have a giant birthmark shaped like a wildebeest on their right buttock.

How did you know about my birthmark??

I'm sorry, I can't divulge that information [g]

I sometimes think that there was a leprachaun in my family background of which we do not speak. Either than or a brownie.

Very cool!

Here's my secret shame - I'm an Engineer.

I'm in charge of the quality program for a major paint manufacturer. Or as my son, Seth likes to point out - I watch paint dry.

LOL!

I can lick my own nose and spit water 3 feet. (But not simultaneously.) Both of these talents have earned me the title: Coolest Grownup EVER, which was bestowed upon me last summer by my niece and nephews.

The nose licking earned me the respect of a group of rambunctious 6th graders when I was student teaching, who behaved perfectly for me the entire semester.
Ithithildyn on December 18th, 2007 11:28 pm (UTC)
Everyone needs special talents [g]

In my next life, I would like to be a penguin at Sea World.

I chose my college major by sitting down with the school's catalog and crossing off everything I didn't want to do.

I have a large scar on my right knee, from where I got stitches when I was 6. I fell on broken bottle glass. It was brown, so probably a beer bottle.

I used to teach at my old high school. In 2006, the Thespians made me an honorary member of their troupe. What most of them didn't know was that, as a student 13 years prior, I was a founding member of said troupe.

I still have the notebooks I used to write NKOTB fanfic when I was 13.

One of my cats is named after Sebastian Bach of Skid Row.

I was the only non-theatre major to be cast in the spring musical my freshman year of college. Too bad I quit school at Christmas and never got to perform!

Ithithildyn on December 19th, 2007 12:10 am (UTC)
NKOTB? I know I'll go 'duh' when you tell me :)

I recently acquired the nickname 'weird Al' in work which I think is great (I like Weird Al Yankovich too). I also turned 40 this year; I'm an original 1980s goth, and proud of it.
Ithithildyn on December 19th, 2007 05:08 pm (UTC)
Cool :)

We've been nodding acquaintances for years,but I have yet to have a long conversation with you in person.

My first convention was Equicon 76 in San Diego, and (somewhere in my stuff) I own a copy of "Spock Enslaved".
Ithithildyn on December 19th, 2007 05:08 pm (UTC)
My first con was some nameless little thing at the University of Victoria, I guess it would have been 79.

Ithithildyn on December 19th, 2007 05:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks for commenting this time! I love hearing from lurkers :) and I'm glad you enjoy my fic.
Rachel: Thinkingdragon_within on December 19th, 2007 03:19 am (UTC)
I collect dragons, although that's not really all that secret.
I used to be a competitive swimmer, and a professional lifeguard
Ithithildyn on December 19th, 2007 05:09 pm (UTC)
I collect dragons too!
Racheldragon_within on December 19th, 2007 06:45 pm (UTC)
Anything in particular?
Ithithildyn on December 19th, 2007 06:48 pm (UTC)
Mostly in general. The only thing I have several of is Pocket Dragons, and art by someone whose name escape me at the moment [g]
Racheldragon_within on December 19th, 2007 07:16 pm (UTC)
The bulk of my collection is pocket dragons! I was sad to hear about Real Musgrave's retirement.

Ithithildyn on December 19th, 2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
It's still my favourite show too :)

My bones are weird. I mean really weird and crooked. I sprained my ankle once and the ER doc looked at the x-ray and told me "We thought it was worse than a sprain, but then we realised it's just the way your foot's made."

seriously
