You will need to fill this in before you can start messaging other members#1 I have a very good memory.
#2 Most important, I can remember how I thought and viewed the world when I was a kid. This keeps me sane, and dangerous.
#3 My mom says when I was a little girl I could get absorbed for hours in some little thing. Then I had to go to school, from which I am still recovering.
#4 The first book I read by myself was Green Eggs and Ham, at age five. To this day, I love that book.
#5 I consider myself at the core of Generation X:I grew up with Sesame Street , I was 5 when Star Wars came out, and 9 when MTV started.
#6 I am a 14th generation Mayflower child.
#7 I could pass for a quarter Indian, but it's more like a thirtieth. (It's too complicated to be 1/32nd.) Somehow those genes did not come through strong. I am pale white.
#8 I was raised jewish, and when the rabbi said "Let all evil spirits now leave her," I burped.
#9 I was born and grew up in Phoenix, AZ, except ages 11-12 and 16-17, when I was in Los Angeles,CA.
#10 I was shocked in the eighth grade when a not-quite-popular girl said she wanted to be popular. I always thought the idea was to rise up and kill the popular kids. Does a Jew want to be a Nazi?
#11 For me, the 9/11 spectacle was like a near-death experience. It made me loosen up, live for the moment, take more chances, because I could die any time. I don't understand why it had the
opposite effect on everyone else.
#12 September 11, 2001 was the day I started going barefoot in
the city. Now I go barefoot everywhere I can. I even installed rubber pedals so I can go barefoot on my bicycle.
#13 I love personality tests.
#14 I don't understand why people crave final answers and
certainty. Nobody wants to go into a physical space and stay there for their entire life. They want to move around and see different things. So why do they feel any different about mental spaces?
#15 I've doubted many things about myself, but I have never
doubted my sanity. And no, that is not a sign of insanity on any serious list of diagnostic criteria.
#16 When I was a little girl, I got sexual feelings from a bit on Sesame Street, a cartoon of the Sign Man.
#17 I like to sleep in a cold room with a lot of blankets and my feet sticking out to radiate excess heat. I get really cold around
midnight, really hot around 4am, and cold again at sunrise.
#18 As a kid I was into the paranormal, then around seventh grade I became a true believer in the objective mechanistic model of
reality because it made me feel smarter than other people. Only in my mid-twenties did I get back into the paranormal.
#19 If I could have any super power, I'd like to be able to shift among alternate worlds.
#20 I like to sing while I'm driving.
#21 My favorite vegetable is the avocado, which is technically a fruit. My favorite true vegetable is the artichoke.
#22 My favorite fruits are blueberry and strawberries.
#23 I have seen every episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and I like Firefly even better.
#24 A friend once told me that I look at the world as if I've never seen it before. I thought, that's a nice compliment... Wait! I never
have seen it before! What -- did everyone else get a preview?
