Five or so Things

November 6, 2006 at 11:00 pm | Posted in More than you ever wanted to know about me..., Pass it On (Memes) | 14 Comments

I have been tagged by Scott and Shannon to present five unusual facts about myself.

Although I am very tired from a whirlwind bloggy get-together in which I. Squeezed. The Chuzzle. I will comply, with a slight twist. I present to you: five truths and a lie. You decide – which is the lie?

  • I have a very hard time telling left and right apart and failed a driving test because of this.
  • I learned to drive on a stick shift (in New York City) and will never buy a car with an automatic transmission. I hate driving them.
  • I hate following or being followed by someone I know when I’m driving. I am terrified that they will get into an accident and I will see it happening and be unable to stop it. I often insist on giving people directions instead and come up with excuses for why they shouldn’t follow me.
  • In high school, I was a competitive race-walker.. Picture a duck with a firecracker shoved up its behind.
  • I do karate but don’t like watching martial arts movies.
  • I have always wanted to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail.

Which is the lie? Speak up! I tag… anyone who wants to do it.

I will second just about everyone in the OC and say YOU MUST GO TO THIS SITE IMMEDIATELY. I am torn looking at it, because it’s absolutely incredible and at the same time it makes me want to kick myself because I’ve thought doing something very similar and of course I have never gotten off my big fat butt and done it.

  1. What is a Chuzzle and how exactly does one squeeze it?

    I have a hard time with left and right. For some reason, I snap with my left hand so when I get confused, I just snap, and I know which way is left 🙂

    My guess is race walking.

    And just because one person’s taken some photos of people with diabetes doesn’t mean it can’t be done again! No excuses!

  2. I’m with Kassie. My guess is the race walking.

    The duck comment made me laugh so I figured that has to be it.

  3. I vote for race-walking, too. And like Kassie said, you can do your own photography exhibit on the D. We’ll be watching for it.

  4. My guess is race-walking.

    The confusion between left and right is one of my biggest issues trying to learn to drive. (And it only happens when I’m driving.)

  5. appalachian trail. but my second guess is race walking.

  6. I guess Appalachian Trail, too.

    I’m so jealous that you got to meet the Chuzzle! Is he as squeezable as he looks?

  7. I’m going to have to go with Bill Clinton.

    Those portraits are freaking amazing…..

    It was awesome meeting you, btw.

  8. What a cool twist Art!

    Hmmm. I’m having trouble with this… The common consensus seems to be the race walking…

    I’m just not sure whether to go with that or not.

    And I agree with Kassie! I say go for it!

  9. The Chuzzle is adorable!

    I’m laughing at the way you described the way you look speed walking. People to have a duckish look about them when they do it, LOL.

  10. Somehow, I believe that you were once a competitive race-walker. However, I’m not sure about the stick shift bit. My guess is that No. 2 is the lie.

    Most likely, I am dreadfully wrong. 🙂

  11. Hey go check out Bernard’s post, I think you are the one to do the photo gallery 2.

  12. I saw that site yesterday. It’s incredible. It makes me sad, yet the photography is gorgeous.

  13. I so want you to have been a race walker AND have a desire to hike the appalachian trail that I’m going with number two, stick shift.

    Driving a stick shift in Chicago is awful, but in New York? Sounds like a nightmare of mine…


  14. Ok, I have no idea… so I’m that pathetic that I’m not even going to guess. I’ll just have to wait for you to uncover the truth 🙂

    As for those photos… wow! They really struck me, especially the first set. So true that pictures speak a 1000 words. I would love to see more photos like them, so I agree that you should give some a go… That would be great 🙂 We’ll be anxiously waiting (so now you have to do it-lol- the pressure is on!)
