inner dork: PG factoids

All my books along with all of my useless knowledge are boxed up. So I will supply you with useless information 'bout me.

Did you know... (and if you did, um, who are you and why are you stalking me?)

I've been in five car accidents. Two of which should have killed me. However, I have managed to walk (limp) away from all of them.

None of those car accidents were my fault.

One, roll over (rolled three times and landed upside down in a corn field in the middle of B.F.E. and in the backseat.) I was 17.
Hit a bridge embankment due to ice. Around 19 or 20 years old.
Rear-ended a guy (oh, that one was my fault. More damage to my car than his.)I was 17.
Rear-ended by a guy going over 50MPH, I was in the middle of two other cars. My car was mushed really good. I was 21 years old.
Roll-over, mom was driving. I was 22 years old.
(knock on wood.)

I have two brothers. One older (36) one younger (23.) I also have a step-brother and a step-sister (I dunno. If I think they are idiots, do they count?)

My parents divorced when I was 15.

It is still one of the most pivotal moments of my life.

Also one of the best things that ever happened to our family.

I always say goodnight to the moon.

I also always pause to look at the moon.

I love gardening.

Therefore my deck garden is my solace.

I love a weekend that has the phrase: "I read a book while working on
my tan."

When someone says something that I think is sending bad vibes out into
the universe I always knock on wood three times.

When I spill salt I always throw some over my shoulder.

"The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien is one of my all time favorite
books.

But so is the "Lorax" by Dr. Seuss.

I believe it is perpetually 1997.

I have no idea why. It wasn't a particularly good year, but I am always surprised to learn it is not 1997.

So I am surprised a lot.

My first car was a 1981 Citation. My aunt bought it for me, cost
$200.00. That would be total dollars.

It lasted less than a year. We moved the middle of my senior year of high school and I commuted over 50 miles each day.

My porn star name is: He-She Cornell. (Name of my first pet, name of
the first street I lived on.)

My mom couldn't remember if the dog was a "he" or a "she." Hence the name,
He-She.

First pet I owned as an adult was a mean as hell black Cocker Spaniel
named Busker. (Boo-sker.) After the band Busker Soundcheck. He had
separation issues. And territorial issues, and just generally mean as
hell doesn't want anyone he doesn't know around him, issues. He just generally had issues. Otherwise he was a great dog....well, and awesome watch dog.

I lost my virginity at 16. (I'm still trying to find it. "Virginity!" "Virginity come home!")

The first time I got into a bar was 16. (The above are not related.)

I've done professional acting work. (There was no soundtrack of, "Wa-chicky-wa-wa," involved.)

....that's all I can come up with for today.

So, tell me a useless factoid about you.

I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues!

hee!

Hmm, something useless about me....

I'm allergic to every antibiotic used to treat ear infections. If I get one I need to go to the ER to get specially treated.

You're the MIDDLE CHILD??? me too!!!

I always know what current phase of the moon and where to look for it...

I have scars (stitches) from 4 injuries and never a broken bone. I only been in the hospital twice - when I was born and at age 23 with a severe case of the flu.

My first car was a 1968 Chevelle SS - and would love to have it back, in the UNWRECKED condition, of course!

My porn star name is Sergeant Mango.

My dad had a German Shepard named Sergeant. Dad trained him to march to a cadence.

I have not owned a television since 2001.

I have never owned a blow dryer.

I have broken a bone 11 times in my life, including the same finger 3 times. My nose has been broken 3 times. I've also had 2 minor surgeries on my knees.

I didn't learn to swim until I was 10.

I have jumped out of a perfectly good airplane...15 times.

On the 15th jump, my primary chute didn't open. I had to deploy my secondary. I have not jumped since.

my porn name is Tex 254...sounds a bit manly no? Oh well. What else...on most days of the week I have no desire to work. I used to paint/draw and now I don't anymore and I miss it greatly.

When I was in high school my nickname was Butch. I also drove a Chevy named Bertha. (What can I say, I had a thing for southern names I guess!) And one more useless fact: I have always wanted to learn architecture, and was even planning on attending college to become one. I was swayed by a good friend of mine to become a PT, so here I am. (And aforementioned friend? Not so much a friend by the time we graduated. Go figure.)

My porn name is Sam Coniston, which to me actually seems to work pretty well. probably far better than I would as a porn star.

My first car was almost a Citation, but it was a stick shift and the clutch was shot. Would've cost more to fix than the car was worth, so my first car changed into a 1974 Nova. Huge back seat. Never used it, but my brother did. Bastard.

I have two tattoos. I want a third.

I have two kids. I do not want a third.

Geez, how do I compete with all of these?

Porn star name: Pepper Waterloo

I've had 3 surgeries -- one of which was in my 'secret place'. And no, I've not had a vasectomy.

I have a phobia about bad smells. I'm forever sniffing things, going: "Something smells. I hope it's not me."

I took a dump behind my gramma's couch, once, and then ran to tell everyone that there was a strange animal there.

That's all I got for now.

What a surprise that everyone told their porn star name. See, this is why I have love for all of you.
