    1. I love ALL animals/insects... if a spider/grasshopper enters any area I'm in(primarily at work), I usually get a plastic cup and napkin, capture it, and escort it back outside.

    2. I enjoy anime and pretty much all genre's of video games except sports games.. (unless extreme sports I guess such as "Snowboard Kids 1&2 for the N64). RPGs are primarily my favorite, western and eastern, as well as strategy games for PC and console... RTS and turn based.

    3. I don't like buying anything used, and will sometimes go to great lengths to get a collector's item, such as a rare hardcover book, limited edition video game, or some sort of accessory of any kind.

    4. When ordering for myself I've been called "simple", if I get pizza, it's pretty much ONLY pepperoni and cheese. If I get ice cream, vanilla. I generally won't try new things when it comes to food unless someone encourages it....

    5. I don't like curry

    1) I once caused a friend to laugh so hard chocolate milk came out his nose. (Yes, I thought that was a myth - until grade 12).

    2) I believe my cat had it in for our family dog by taking its leash and putting it places that I do not remember leaving it.

    3) I'm kinda OCD - I rotate my clothes according to last worn and put the fresh ones on the bottom so that everything gets worn equally

    4) I have a foot phobia. No, like seriously.

    5) My hand-eye coordination is very poor. The last time I caught a football ended up breaking my nose.

    *Bonus - I like to read and write - A LOT.

    1. I swing back and forth between periods of being highly motivated and lazy as hell.

    2. I'm very good at my job although there are not words enough to describe how much I hate it.

    3. If it wasn't because of said job, I would in all likelihood be a pothead.

    4. I often daydream about what it would be like to grab a bag and one guitar and hit the road with no word to anyone and walk away from pretty much everything.

    5. I know I'll probably never do number 4.

    1. Whenever I'm reading a book, I start thinking in the narrator's voice. I can't tell if this is strange or not.

    2. I have pretty great self-control, except when it comes to sleep. I can justify skipping most about anything, just to stay in bed.

    3. Sometimes I spend hours on the ground, looking up at the sky.

    4. I can't figure out how group communication is supposed to work. Saying something at the right time seems impossible to me.

    5. I can't really think of anywhere I don't want to go. And I'll probably try most things if you make a show over me not trying it, just to be stubborn.

    Are you guys talking via ham radio when dims is not an option? Ham radio is literally the only other thing I can think of besides this website.

    1. One phrase always comes up repeatedly in my mind when I'm roaming around Dims. Namely, "people are funny."

    2. Total dog person.

    3. The appeal of getting drunk/high is something I understand only objectively. I get a lot of flack for this. That said, I am certainly not in the business of party-pooping.

    4. I am not allowing myself to start learning any new languages until my French is at a conversational level I am happy with. This is really hard - there are only about five thousand more languages I want to learn.

    5. Turkey ham is my favourite, though I still maintain that bacon trumps ham.

    1. I can never keep laughter in. I once laughed for 15 minutes at a Pokey the Penguin comic.
    2. I have a weird fascination with eyes.
    3. I made an RPG game when I was 12 about a blob trying to escape a prison on a planet made of poop.
    4. Daredevil Born Again is my favourite book
    5: I have an inherent fear of choking, so I can't even swallow pills whole.

    Clearly it was my thread plagiarizing that brought her back. You're welcome, everyone else.


    Fake edit: I just realized that seeing my name as the last person to post in this thread might give false hope to anyone who's been impatiently awaiting my next 5 facts. Oh well.

    1. I live 10 minutes from the hospital I was born in.

    2. My Mom was 17 when I was born and she was married to my Dad.
    SEVENTEEN and it wasn't a shotgun wedding.

    3. My Dad had my name picked out since he was 12 years old.

    4. I got my naturally curly hair from my maternal Grandfather. His name was Ralph.

    5 Today is my birthday.

    1.
    Mine as well. But there are at least few reasons I can think-of; although, to be fair, I'm inclined to ascribe some sort of reason for most things.

    2.
    I guess I'm somewhat mixed-handed, preferring the right for most things. But there's a least one thing I prefer to use my left hand for. And I think it has something to do with being raised in a family of "mixed-dexterousness."

    3.
    I feel like I could tell both of these things about you before your mentioning-it?

    4.
    I know what you mean. But, somehow, I've managed to work past stuff like that.

    5.
    Yeah, seriously. Giardiniera? Kim Chee? Those gross eggs floating jar of brine? More, please. I haven't yet come to a point where I'm trying to pickle anything at home. But I will admit to having at least thought about it.

    I haven’t done this for a while, so hopefully these are not repetitions…

    1. When I was first hunting for a job after university I did one of those exercises that helps you figure out where you may want to live. In the end I got it down to two criteria: at least reasonably metropolitan/diverse, and within day trip distance of downhill skiing.

    2. I’ve loved every bike that I’ve had, and had at best a love-hate relationship tinged with indifference with my cars, but I’ve named every car and never named my bikes.

    3. My first school project, in grade three, was on how nuclear reactors work. I was pretty much destined to be an engineer and a nerd, I think.

    4. I worked one Summer as an assistant lifeguard, and really did not like the job. Having to sit there and constantly scan, but with nothing to really do, is brutally hard for me. I also gained ten pounds from spending so much time sitting, and then drinking soda because I was thirsty—despite biking twenty minutes hard each way. I was so disappointed, because it is one of the best paying Summer jobs you can get and seemed way cooler than other available Summer jobs.

    5. I’m on a twenty-five+ year quest for non-sparkling hard apple cider, like we could occasionally get when we lived in France. It was so good, but nobody seems to make it in Canada (I don’t think it has much of a shelf life, so it may not be a viable store-shelf product, but you’d think that some brew pubs or the like would carry it)

    New round also for me!

    1. When I want to relax, I cook.
    2. My head hair are light brown, but I have ginger facial hair.
    3. I love books, I read a lot. But there are only one I keep reading over and over (at least once a year). It's "My War Against Indifference" by Jean Selim Kanaan
    4. I'm not easy to cry during a movie, but I got tears in my eyes every time I see "Toy Story 3" final scene.
    5. I'm in a reenactment group

    1. When I was a young man in my late early 20s, I was charged with a crime in which I was not legally innocent, but the facts of how things got to be that way had everything to do with manipulation, me not knowing any better, me not knowing any of my rights, and being general stupid to the point of having sucker rubber-stamped on my forehead. I was played like a tape. The resulting aftermath gave me an anti-authoritarian complex that I still have to this day, and probably should not. Perhaps removing this ill and impaired thinking will open life up for me, though my friends appear to come and go.

    2. My home town was informed that I was dead, and a mass was held in my honor.

    3. I cannot play piano past an elementary level. It would be extremely hard for me to re-learn the basic things that I know about the wooden box with 88 keys. I can play, but I am unsure I will ever be center-stage at an event, playing. This may breed resentment.

    4. I have aspirations to be an actor and director a la Ben Affleck, and I really like one of his films. Attempting to meet people to keep the idea alive.

    5. I have lived below the poverty level every year of my adult life and squandered approximately $40,000 in assets and cahs combined. I not only have a complex about this, but feel bitter and angry. The it is all your fault is a sting that I cannot handle, because, in some ways but also not when manipulation and inexperience is factored in, it is not, and I look at those with the gall to judge my experiences with contempt.

    1. I feel like I'm finally growing up. At 28 years old, I'm finally able to live on my own and take care of myself. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but it's also SO rewarding. It feels amazing.

    2. Every one I have encountered seems to think I need to regain full custody of my daughter and bring her home. She lives with her dad, 2 hours away from me. It's hard to not have her with me, but I know she is better off there right now. They are a two income household. I'm a one income, fuck how am I going to buy groceries this week household. Common sense says let her stay there. I go visit regularly, and we use FaceTime to chat daily.

    3. I love that I'm in school and I love that I've managed to keep my grades up through all the crap I've been through this month. I can't wait to have my degree (in April!).

    4. I still struggle with body image issues. I go through phases where I MUST lose weight and get thin and healthier. Then the fat girl in me takes over and I discover ice cream all over again.

    5. I have a constant fear that I will always be alone. Mr. Right is an elusive bastard and I wish he would just come out and be with me already. I don't want to turn into the crazy dog lady (I'm allergic to cats, so I can't be the crazy cat lady).

    As a former resident of South Korea, I wholeheartedly approve of kimchi and all foods containing it.

    I always read this thread but this is my first time posting in it.

    1. I love buying crafting projects (jewelry making and such) but never do them.

    2. I've been buying up all the Sally Hanson nail strips I find at discount stores but end up using them on my nieces for the most part. I have quite the collection at the moment.

    3. I was laid off from work earlier this month and have been a gaming fool.

    4. I bought some kickboxing classes but have yet to go. Instead I blew the dust off my Tae Bo dvd's cause I really hate workout classes because I have a fear I'll fart in public during the workout.

    5. I bought a new smart phone last month an downloaded so many games it used up the all the memory so now my phone acts wonky an I need to reset it to factory defaults but have been procrastinating on doing it.
