Based upon what you previously written and perceiving you to be an honest person, none of that surprises me. But my question is how many kids were in your graduating class. I feel I missed a lot of opportunities because my high school was huge with a graduating class of almost 1,900, second largest in the state of California.

Okay, back to the question.

Name something about yourself that other people might be surprised to know.

In the mid eighties I caught the second largest red snapper in Texas waters, over 22 pounds.

As a job counsellor for the state of Texas for over six years, I have won five recognized statewide awards for my performance.

My online professional writings have been read over three million times.

My first poem was published when I was 12 in a literary journal when my English teacher sent it in without telling them my age.

At NYU I was the head of the cultural committee my senior year.

I went to finishing school. (Not my idea)

I leanred how to breathe fire way back when. Not something from the past I have any interest in doing now and wonder what was I thinking?

I thought of a few things like I am pagan and played drums in a rock band for 6 years but I think everyone pretty much knew all of that anyway.

May 20 @ 10:45PM

Did anyone know that I used to teach sunday school in a Christian Church?

May 21 @ 10:24AM  
Something about me that people might be surprised to know? I really can't think of anything that interesting to be honest, but I'll try

I graduated with honors from college with a 4.0 GPA.

I write poetry (or I used to - the last poem I wrote was in 2004).

I don't like to cry openly and cry a lot when I'm alone (which is actually a lot of the time) and even though I might seem like a cold-hearted bitch, deep down I'm a very compassionate and caring person.

That last one wasn't easy to admit. That's it....I'm overall rather boring, I think.

May 21 @ 2:42PM  
Thanks Tassie...I have more, but....should I be embarassed????

May 21 @ 9:29PM  
I used to be a liberal hippy...

....J/K I hope some of you didn't pass out after reading that.


I used to play baseball through school
I had two majors in college
I graduated from the police academy years ago

That's just to name a few...

May 21 @ 10:02PM  
A few more of mine but I confess that I forgot to add a kudo for an excellent blog.

I think bunny is the winner of most interesting accomplishments and experiences:

But here are some more of mine:

I was on the UTK wrestling team when bunny rewarded us. I got in line three times (JK).

I wave worked with presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W, Bush (when he was governor).

I have done stand up comedy professionally.

I have been a radio disk jockey.

I portrayed Dave Lennox at a trade show.

I have sold jokes to Gallagher in the late eighties. One was when the Cowboys were bad before Jerry Jones bought them, but it was well known that they were up for sale: "Did you hear that there are two groups interested in buying the Cowboys and both are foreign? The sticking point is both want to change the team's name. One is in Tokyo and the other from the Philippines. If the group from Tokyo gets them, the name will be the Jap Zeros. If group from the Philippines prevails, they will become the Manila Folders.

May 21 @ 10:45PM  
Well Damn.... I had a fish hook Removed from the Palm of my hand Someone who was....a Presidents Secretary... retired! (Johnson's)!
Bunny Rocks!!! I Really Want to taste That!!!! (Bunny!)

I thought I might add a few more tidbits...

- I once performed medical chart auditing at several Oklahoma City hospitals.

- For a while, I worked as a workers' compensation insurance adjuster.

- I was a Camp Fire Girl when I was age 11 and 12.

- I once caught an 8 pound fish on a snoopy fishing pole.

- I once turned down a 4-year theatre scholarship to college.

- I once had hand surgery...and then caught a plane to Europe the very next day.

- I use to ride on a church bus called the "Joy Bus" and I would teach Sunday school on the way to church. I was 17 at the time.

- I helped develop a specialized audit software to be used in hospitals and served as technical support for this software.

Thanks so much for all your great comments. I really enjoyed learning a little bit more about you.

May 22 @ 1:15AM  
Damn, how could I forget... I have been paid for writing several articles on relationships, specifically divorce!!!

May 22 @ 2:25AM  
When I was reconstructing my house I squatted really low and fell back on a nail that stuck in my as and I had to ask a carpenter dude who was there helping me to pull it wasn't in my actually booty hole...but a bit to the side. A piese of lathing was stuck to it...lathing helps support plaster and I was knocking it all out
to prepare for sheetrock...ouch...
another house I was reconstructing, I was working in it all alone and didn't lock the door. 3 kids came in on me and made me get down on my knees and shot me in the head. The gun I am not dead....

May 22 @ 4:20AM  
When I was born, on Halloween night, I was not technically alive. Lack of blood-oxygen had caused me to be born anoxic. This was further complicated because my body started rejecting the transfusions they were giving me.

I was raised in an abusive household, and I tried to commit suicide twice. Both times the family covered it up.

I have three college degrees. An associates' in computer programming, a B.A. in Behavioral Psychology, and an M.ed. They are cum laude, magna cum laude, and suma cum laude, respectively.

While I've been in my share of brawls, the only person I ever seriously hurt in one was my own brother. I would have hurt the guy that hit me in the head with a hammer worse, but the little shrimp outran me.

I used to be a hacker. My specialties included exploiting flaws in Apple programs and systems and altering magnetic media.

One year, I managed to read 250 books.

I worked as a troubleshooting legal-medical liaison for a major insurance company, helping to manage one of their most successful east-coast departments.

While I've had multiple simultaneous partners, group sex situations, and polyamorous relationships I have never cheated on anyone.

May 22 @ 4:23AM  
And my legs reeeealy hurt right now.

May 22 @ 1:58PM  
I was adopted on Halloween! parents used to call me their little spook!
