Default Post 5 random facts about yourself!

Because I'm nosy, and I demand it!

But seriously... I feel like I'm on a complete stranger basis with everybody. Humour me, (with a u) and play along to help me get to know you. (And to help others get to know you.) It's a fun game anyway!

The facts can be anything! I will play too. GO!!

Okay, well.

1. Though I'm educationally aspiring to be a chef and restauranteur, I have a second dream career as a singer or Musical actor. Both are my dream jobs.

2. My Father was a professional Baseball player on three major league teams. Who he is and which teams they were, I won't say.

3. I once jumped off a cliff, which for some odd reason had the effect of making me take more risks in my life, which has paid off. Oh, and the cliff was into water, so I didn't die or anything.

4. Though my favorite type of food is Asian, my favorite dish is Italian.

5. I've tried out for American Idol this past season, and will again next opportunity I get. That kinda ties to 1.

Now where are your five facts?

Oh my God! The thought of cliff jumping actually upsets me. My biggest fear is heights, to be honest.
How did trying out for American Idol go? Any good feedback?

Here's my five!

1. My favourite genre to read is science fiction/fantasy.

2. My minor is in visual arts, but I wish I had the guts to have pursued that as a major.

3. I cry a little bit whenever I see my favourite bands live. (And no, they aren't boy bands! haha! Although with my behaviour they might as well be.)

4. I collect secret tattoos and piercings. For some reason I derive great satisfaction out of the fact that hardly anybody knows about them. I envision myself down the road as a professional woman with all these secrets beneath my stupid little businesslike outfit!

5. I am frightened by horses and birds.

5. I actually think I'm hot, even though as a fat guy I'm supposed to have low self esteem and even swim with a shirt on. I'm not afraid that people see my body, on the contrary I kind of like the attention I get.

Ha. I love how everyone jumps on the American Idol thing.

First thing first, I didn't make it past the first audition. The first audition is in the big stadium on the grounds. The set up booths, put a producer at each one, and have people go up, section by section, in groups of four, and sing about 30 seconds apiece, then, they tell you which, if any made it through. Of the thousands that come in (here in KC it was estimated 15,000, which means about 7,500 auditioners plus their one guest), only about 200 make it through, the best, and the worst. They could put more through, but by their standards it usually adds up to about 200 whether they try to or not. There are tons of stories from people who are great singers or heard amazing singers get cut at the first round. Example: Jordin Sparks, the winner of Season 6, had to audition a second time after getting cut first round of her first audition. I got cut in this stage, but the feedback was good, and I'm going back knowing what to do right this time around.

After that, if you make it through, you go to another round like it or to the head producers of the show, who you'll sing for in a room like the one you see Simon, Randy, and Paula in, alone like on the show. There are many cases of them switching out footage from this round for the one in front of the Judges. If you are good, or bad, enough to make it through, you then go to the famous three, and after that it's like you see on TV.

So there you have it.

I guess that leaves me at an advantage being a high school swimmer. Once you've bared it all in nothing but a speedo among relatively toned guys, swimming in just trunks doesn't really bug you that much.

There's a bonus 6th fact for you. XD

Hmmm...lessee...

1. If I hadn't gotten married so young (21), I would have pursued a singing career. Maybe I still can.

2. It took me until I was 27 to fall in REAL love. The kind that makes you say "Holy shit! So THIS is what they mean!"...you know the kind...where the longing for your sweetheart becomes physically painful. But it's blissful pain.

3. I live in Hawaii, but I've never frickin' snorkelled. Not for lack of trying, but because every time it's planned I get my period... :-(

4. I have one sibling...a brother...5yrs and 8mos older. His bday is today.

5. I'm klutzy. I sing and dance in the shower...and have fallen more than once because of it. I also fall UP stairs...total klutz.

OK, I might as well jump in on this one. Bear with me...

1. I'm a geek. Majorly. Computer science major, star trek fan, would rather use the slowest remaining Mac/Linux machine than a new Windoze platform, constantly repairing things that other people would throw away, basement full of fifteen year old computers I just tinker with, I shoot manual-focus manual-exposure cameras... the list goes on. Nearly everything I use is open-source.

2. In my life, I do a very Spock-like (star trek reference for the unfamiliar, if there is such a thing) emotion concealment for the most part... everything I say, everything I act, is usually carefully metered out to make me appear a little less spontaneous and a little more unflappable than I actually am... just because that's the impression I'd like people to have of me, that I'm in control of myself. I am 95% of the time anyway.

3. I won't say it's my single biggest pet peeve, but it's right up there: everything we buy now is made too cheap to last and made to where you can't repair it. I miss the days when you could buy a toaster or a vcr, use it for twenty-five years, when it broke you could take it to a toaster repair shop or a vcr repair shop and have actual parts changed out by an actual technician. For this reason, I'm driving a 1986 diesel car simply because it's still do-it-yourself repairable.

4. Despite the geekiness, I'm actually an outdoorsy person. I could never stand living in a city or a development, I need my space. I've never been particularly into sports, watching or playing them; however, I grew up enjoying and still love skeet shooting (related to me being an outdoors person, I guess.)

5. Can't think of anything organized so I'm just going to throw in a whole bunch of random interests and hobbies: photography, animals of all kinds (especially dogs), meteor showers and anything else space-y, reading (anything and everything) - on that subject, my favorite old author is Mark Twain, my favorite modern author would have to be Elizabeth Peters -- I play several instruments including trombone, accordion, piano (at church and at home), ... I'm running out here. Anything else, just ask me if you're curious.
