Written By: gemini61 on 05/26/04 at 4:07 pm

Is there any talent, or anything weird or quirky about you? Or something you've done, haven't done that's interesting? I'll start! I like peanut butter and brown sugar sandwiches, can't whistle :-[, have never been on an airplane, and I was a band geek!!! :-X And yes, there really was band camp!! ::) Oh yea, and have been married to my highschool sweetheart for 24 years, thats a talent right there ;)

I am double jointed, so I can bend my fingers backwards to where they touch the tops of my hands.

I used to write stories and I even won some awards for three of them.

I won the spelling bee in fifth grade.

Well done for a great topic, gemini. I was umming and aahing about starting off a topic on quirks but since the last time I put a thread on was based on personalities, people might think I'm a psychologist doing market research over the net.  ;D

Quirks. God! I've got a few . . .

- I am prone to spontaneous dancing when happy or excited (in the style of Dick Van Dyke dancing on a roof-top doing his 'Me 'Ol Bamboo' routine).

- I have a severe lack of social awareness. E.g. I am prone to making impressions of famous people while queuing in clothes shops for example. This either fascinates or irritates people -  :-[

- I am quite egotistical. I sang the theme tune to 'The Fall Guy' over the answering machine to find out how my singing voice sounded.

Most people who know me think I'm extremely shy but I'm quite the contrary.  Most don't know I have this kinda crazy insane sense of humor.  I always like to make people laugh by quoting/imitating celebrities and/or people I know at convenient times.

Most people are also surprised by the fact that I'm an excellent singer...an excellent singer...an ex...well anyway...Again it's because I'm mostly shy.  I may talk in this shy little voice but then I get up there and sing Mozart or some kinda sh*t and they're all "WOW! Ruth can sing!"

I'm mostly happy when I'm out and about and always laughing.  When I'm suffering from depression I stay at home, sometimes don't bother getting out of bed or answering the phone and cry for hours on end.  When I tell people I suffer from depression that look at me in disbelief - I'm sure they think I make it up.  :( 

The other thing that shocks people is how much alcohol I can consume and still talk sense!

In my spare time I like cooking, I make great chutney which is always a hit at our school fete.  I also make dolls clothes (my girls are too old now to dress their dollies) but I still make them for friends' little girls and for our parish craft stall.

I dunno what whould surprise people about me, except maybe when they see my tattoos, "You don't look like the kind of girl who would get tattoos like that!"

There are a couple of other things, but it only surprises guys.... ;)
Older guys come up to me and are surprised when I tell them my age. I have noticed that I am a magnet for older, unavailable men...

I play piano too!

I also play the piano. I had private lessons from 1991-93, and then had a piano class in my freshman year of high school (Fall 1994-95 semester), and six years after that, I had a piano class in college. I play periodically, although it would probably be good for me to practice a little more.

Ohh, where do I start with weird stuff about me...

1. I play piano too (you should hear me play "We Didn't Start the Fire" while screaming it... I totally slaughter it.)
2. I collect spoons. I only have about eight, but I hope to get some more next birthday :)
3. I used to collect stamps.
4. I speak a little Klingon (only the VERY basics though, like "Hello", "Shut up" and "Where is the lavatory?")
5. My hair never stops looking completely stupid. First I had the worst fringe known to man...
Then when I was growing it out I had two chin-length bits dangling from each side of my face- I thought that they looked cool...
Then I had a rat-tail over my right ear- I'd put it in after watching the Star Wars prequels and thought that that looked cool. I kept the same one in for about a month before I got sick of it. It was hilariously curly when I undid it, since it had been plaited for so long.
6. I get up at 6 every morning to watch "The Hoobs".
7. I have an "All Your Base Are Belong to Us" T-shirt.
8. I talk to my computer.
9. I used to play the recorder with my nose.
10. I like writing pointless lists of stuff about myself.

hahahaha me too !  Whether or not I remember it the next day is a whole nother story.

I dont really know what would surprise people about me - I tend to reveal basically everything about myself.

Lemme think of something.

I come across as generally a nice person who gets along with 90% of people who I meet.  But when I dont like someone - I can be a total cow.  I have given a guy in my team the silent treatment for 14 months so far.

I dont know how surprising this is - but I made a decision at age 12 to never have children and at 35 I am still very firm on that decision.

Particularly his pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich who, despite his pardon for the crimes that he was already convicted of, has WISELY chosen to not return to the United States.

The news agancies did not even scratch the surface to describe the array of questionable dealings he had (including at the time of his pardon), including those with figures reputed to be kingpins in the Russian Mob.  If you did a web search on notorious figures such as Lev Chernoy, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the Reuben Brothers, and other notorious Russian figures, they usually link back to Rich.

It would be REAL interesting to find out exactly what happened behind the scenes to get Clinton to pardon Rich.

I can sing VERY well but I have no desire to be a singer or an American idol.
I can however compose music from the notes to the lyrics. I've already written about 20+ instrumentals and approx 9 songs with lyrics, but I'm too shy to show my work outside my circle of friends.

I slipped in the bathroom and my foot went through the skirting tiles sliceing it off. The skin around it rotted even after it was treated because some bits of Tile and what not got in there, and about half the skin on my foot had to be cut off to stop the spread. It was Gross!!!

My moods can shift rather rapidly, but in a predicatble order, and never a rapid up-shift. It's always a down-shift, in this order:

Happy or Normal
Sad, which channels into Either
Depressed    Lonely    or Angry
Angry can turn violent, lonely can mix with depressed, depressed just stays depressed.

People are often suprised at how sappy i can be. I wouldn't go in the animal shelter the other day (we're looking for another dog) Because it was one of the ones where they sometimes put down healthy dogs because they aren't found homes. We drove all the way to the Humane Society instead.


That's a very good principal. I respect that.. but I thought the Humane Society did that too.. at least that's what my Grandfather told me years ago.

They put sick and injured dogs down if they can't do much about them.. they usually tend to leave them be otherwise. I think if a dog is there for a few years they tend to possibly have them put down unlike many organisations where the turnover is around 3 months.

What would surprise people about me?

I like both 80's and 90's pop cluture.  Some people on these boards insist to attack the 80's or 90's because they prefer one decade over the other.

I like Black women(I am a white guy and I think some of the guys I meet in my life are shocked about that. I even had a black guy at a place I used to work at surprised about that. I still like white and Spanish women though.

I am mysterious i think. A woman at a place I used to work at was like I could picture you partying. For the record I don;t go to party;s. Its not my thing.

I watch the UPN Show "Girlfriends" sometimes.

People are surprised that I am alone when I go out.

I like Pop/R&B music from the 80's and 90's. Most guys my age do not listen to that kind of music.

I like to sing hit songs sometimes from R&B artists.

I don't know if this would surprise people or not, but I don't socialise and mix with people very well in real life. I have a handful of friends at school, but at home I have only a couple. Everyone round my estate is friendly toward me, there are no people who don't like me (that i'm aware of), but some weeks i'll only go out on a couple of occasions. I've always been the same - I just can't seem to mix very well with large groups of people... never mind, i'm happy as I am so no worries  ;)
I feel the same way. I like to talk better one on one with a person than with a large group of people.

Here are things that may sound absolutely ordinary to some, but here are some things that may surprise you about me:

2. I use to remodel homes for a few summers.

3. I use to be a roller skater and was in competitions.

4. I am also double jointed and am right handed, but I cut my meat with my left hand.

5. I am an artist. (painting, drawing - whatever you want from me, I'll do it)

Before we were married, Carlos & I went to a wedding. I basically forced him to go up there when they were throwing the garter. He was not very thrilled about it and when the groom throw it, Carlos kept his arms at his side. And the garter landed right in his hand. But, I'm sure he had the woman who caught the bouquet melting because after he put it on her, he kissed her hand-a true gentleman. I know I was the envy of all the ladies-not because of just that, but because he took me out on the dance floor for a waltz.

~I am usually in a bad mood, but I have learned to put on a happy face.

~I hate long nails...I bite mine too much.

~I usually hate chocolate...I REALLY have to be in the mood to eat it.

Allow me to explain:

Two of us would either sit within leg's length on the floor, or on the couch, facing each other.
Legs are stretched out, toward your opponent.

The only parts of your body you're allowed to attack with are your toes.
The object is to get your opponent to submit, by means of pinching/toe locks, etc.
Attacks are restricted to the lower half od the body.
Groinal attacks are not allowed.

Hopefully, this answers your question.

well then that's what matters, you dig you hobbit feet and hobbits are cool.  I'm just not a fan of the foot, but they have served their purpose all of my life so I should be a little thankful.

WWSPAY? I just realized I have a bad habit. when I drink hot tea or cold diet cokes in a cup or glass, if that cup or glass didn't get washed the night before, and it's on the counter, I don't even rinse it out, I just pour more into the same cup. is that sick?  :o

In all fairness, we were actually at Pleasure Island, which wasn't technically IN Disney World (we had to take a bus from the park).  If you have never checked out Pleasure Island, you take a shuttlebus from the park and show your ID at the entrance.  My brother & I were both over 21 so we showed our licenses, got the wristbands, and went in.  It is a bunch of different theme bars in a small area so they are just yards away from each other.  I wanted to go to the jazz bar, but it was always at capacity, so I never did get to check it out.  We spent most of our time in one that had a revolving dance floor.  I went outside for some air and when I went to go back in, the security guard didn't want to let me back in.  He forcibly grabbed my arm and literally dragged me over to a light so he could closely examine my ID and me.  He didn't even do it discreetly, so there were all kinds of people watching.  While I was out getting manhandled, my brother was inside watching some guy get manhandled by Shaq's bodyguard.

My niece is the same way. She is now in her late 20s (OMG, she is pushing 30!!!  :o :o :o  Makes me feel old.  :-\\ ) and she still looks about 15 or so. When she turn 21, her mother gave her the gift of a trip to Vegas. She kept having to show her ID over and over again until they learned about the wrist band. I'm sure in a few years, she is going to be THRILLED that she still looks so young-but right now, it still annoys her.

While we're on the subject, is it just me or is it typically people in their late teens and 20s (especially young women) who detest people mistaking them as younger? That's totally not a dig or anything, I'm just wondering. It is understandable to a point, if you're trying to buy cigarettes, alcohol or get into clubs and people hassle you for looking underage.

I don't do any of that, so maybe that's why it never bothers me, because it's not coming from a restrictive or a negative connontation. I look youngish for my age and it's generally cool with me, because in terms of personality I don't always feel it. Soccer mom types still call me "hon" and stuff sometimes. I think that's cute and I know it won't last forever, so I'm trying to enjoy little things like that while I can lol. ;)

The only remotely annoying thing is when I make a comment about something in the '80s (either a personal memory, or something that was popular then) and I get the "Oh, aren't you too young to remember that?" crap. Even though I wasn't exactly a functional member of society, I have a really good memory as well as an interest in that time regardless. Even stuff that I don't remember, I got into secondhand, but those things don't always occur to the older generations. Ah well. In the past it might've angered me somewhat. Now I just shake my head and laugh a little.

that I used to be more quiet and wouldn't voice my opinion regarding my views....but one day I grew balls..and now I will tell anyone what I think, and if they don't like it...it really doesn't matter to me. ;)


For some voicing opinions is a normal everyday occurrence.  Don't you just love the newness of things?  Does growing balls mean you also have the right to threaten to do bodily harm?
