Ok ok ok, I have been tagged, several times for several reasons and thus far have not participated. With NO offense to anyone who has ever tagged me I have decided to do this one, partly because I adore Lady Brett, despite her hesitations with dogs (come on Lady Brett, who in the world wants to poop outside when it’s raining?!?) and partly because I feel like I have the time… and I am flattered of course, to have been a piece of the net she would have a drink with.
So, ten honest things (off the top of my head and all quick like):
1. I am terrified of snakes. Not like really scared of them, like debilitating fear. The only two times I have ever fainted in my life both involved snakes.
2. I’m gay. JUST KIDDING. I mean, I am gay but that is not my real answer for #2. I was in a serious relationship with a girl for the first time at the age of 15. We dated for 4 years. I was 17 the first time I came out to anyone. The first person I came out to was my girlfriend.
3. Both of parents grew up in Hawaii. Don’t be confused, I am white as snow but have a pretty strong Hawaiian influence in my life. While most kids were probably adding spoon fulls of sugar to their cornflakes I was sprinkling it on poi with toast (which is pretty gross, no matter how much sugar you add). I also knew how to say humuhumunukunukua’pua’a (the Hawaiian state fish) before I could spell my own name or recite the pledge of allegiance.
4. I am left-handed.
5. When I was 4 I severed a tendon in my middle finger on my left hand. The surgeon took a tendon out of my middle toe on my right foot and put it in my hand. Works pretty well and I have some awesome scars that you just can’t get anymore. The foot part has never been an issue until just recently spraining my ankle.
6. I think Sarah Palin is awful… and hot. (AAAAH!!! I said it! I said it!!!… AAAAAAAAAAH!!!)
7. I have reoccurring dreams: about being bitten by a snake right on the scar on my left hand, that I am a jaguar that can run faster than a motherf*&^#er, that I can fly, that I am an incredibly amazing world class rollerblader, that I have long girly hair (which always freaks me out), that I am smoking a cigarette (which i have sworn I will NEVER EVER do again… ever), that I get stung by a bee and nothing bad happens, that I am making out with Alanis Morissette (her mouth has always scared me in a good way).
8. Three of my favorite things to do: skinny dipping, making people laugh when they are trying not to, kissing Violet (aw… whatever… but seriously.)
9. In high school I almost didn’t graduate due to one silly little missing P.E. class credit. This forced me to take a weight training class for 3 hours a day the first half of my senior year. I hated it. For two of the hours it was just me and the instructor. When the ridiculous class was finally over I took that standardized test thing and tested out as “in excellent condition for an 18 year old male”. I could bench press 5 pounds over my own weight, could do one-handed pull ups AND one-handed push ups and could climb a two story rope in seconds (like spiderman! Rock.)
10. I usually have a song stuck in my head. A lot of the time it’s not a real song but a song I’ve made up and can’t stop repeating for a while (these days it is usually about the Seal.) When there is no song stuck in my head I will catch myself singing “Dude Looks Like A Lady
Tada! Finished. Aaaaaaah. Feels good. I am not going to tag folks but if you stumble upon this and feel inspired to share yourself with the internets, by all means…
