  • Some random facts about yourself

    This has been done before but I thought it would be worth doing again as a way of getting to know our fellow posters better.

    Just post a few facts about yourself that other posters may not know about.

    1. I'm mad about rice - I eat it twice a day, five times a week. Monday and Thursday's are my days off.

    2. My son's father is Zimbabwean

    3. I missed a month of college in 1989 because of the birth of my son. I was at college the day before he was born.

    4. I'm descended from a gang of 18th century bandits known in welsh as the "gwylliaid cochion" which translates as "the red bandits"

    5. In 1988 the government issued guidelines for alcohol consumption. 14 units was deemed the safe level for men and 7 for women. Subsequently my friends and I went out drinking all week and consumed in the region of a 140 units.

    6. The village where my Dad was brought up was drowned in the 1960s to create a reservoir to provide water for the city of Liverpool

    7. I've never had a boyfriend that's taller than me. The shortest was 5'1" and the tallest 6'2".

    8. I had piano and clarinet lessons for ten years, played in the county orchestra and played the organ in chapel services till I was 22.

    9. I've had five operations and been ill for a third of my life.

    10. The primary school I attended is located on land where there used to be a welsh whisky distillery and was used as a prison camp for Irish rebels during the early part of the 20th century.



    And that's it, now it's your turn

    Oh yes - I almost forgot to add - I'm a weak swimmer, which is a big disadvantage for a shark!

      1. I was born in Niagara Falls, NY.

      2. I attended 3 elementary schools in 6 years. We moved a lot when I was a kid.

      3. Lived in Colorado for 26 years. Moved there when I was 3.

      4. My first car was a 1976 Pontiac Catalina. Used to be a cop car. That thing was FAST! Dual carbs, 400 Interceptor Engine, major gas hog!

      5. I've had 3 surgeries to remove cysts from my lower spine (tailbone). I dont recommend it.

      6. I'm two years away from completing my degree in Meteorology. (I did graduate college, just not in meteorology. Moved to Indiana and had to change majors.)

      7. I hate skiing.

      8. Love junk food. It likes to hang around

      9. Just started trying to make my own clothes. After a few mishaps, I think I am getting the hang of it.

      10. Hubby and I have tried for kids for about a year now. No luck yet. But it's fun to try!

        Hmmm, let's see here.

        I've never owned a car with an automatic transmission.

        I've been to more countries in Europe than states in the U.S., yet hadn't been on an airplane til the age 16.

        I'm a first generation american, with both my parents coming here in the mid-60's.

        I'm a middle child.

        I don't have tonsils.

            1. ) I've lived in Cincinnati all my life. I've never been outside of the country.
            2. ) I've been a football fan for almost as long as I can remember. My other favorite sports are college basketball and UFC.
            3. ) I used to want to be a professional wrestler. I gave up on that dream when I injured my neck while weightlifting.
            4. ) My dream is to someday be a professional sports writer. I'm going to start writing for KFFL in my spare time. I just have to get the contributor form to them and I'll be good to go.
            5. ) I used to be a Republican. Funny how things work out, no?
            6. ) I'm an excellent poker player. I won $75 playing cards this weekend. I play at least once a week.
            7. ) I'm a beer snob, but you knew that already.
            8. ) My favorite TV shows are CSI and Law & Order.
            9. ) Everyone I know and hang out with is funny as hell.
            10.) My first post on the board was a trollish "thank you for Deltha O'Neal" thread in the smack forum. Since then, I've made a lot of friends here.
            HEAR ME ROAR!

                I am one of five siblings.


                I recently appeared on TV here. This brings my total media appearances, outside of my work, to 33 in 15 different states.

                I have a minor in theater performance.

                Although culturally, I am a proud and observant Puerto Rican, I don't speak a lick of Spanish.

                I recently became an uncle.

                I played a year of college basketball.

                I was once a pretty serious musician.

                I have never touched a firearm.

                I have never broken a bone.

                I've never had a serious illness. In fact, I haven't called in sick to work or school since a VERY bad case of flu in the 6th grade. I've missed for funerals and stuff, but not sickness.

                I've been doing radio, either as a hobby, or for money, for more than half my life.

                Everybody's gotta elevate from the norm...

                The greatest list of music I don't own on CD :sad:

                  If it wasn't for that pesky wife, I'd say "hello."

                  Just kidding about the wife part. I love her.

                  But if I were in Indiana, I could see us getting along famously.

                    we should start a broncomania band.


                    a few more things about myself.

                    - I am a very good immpresionist and mimic.

                    - I have 7 uncles, no aunts, so it isnt surprising that I have 6 sisters to even it out.

                    -music and comedy both hold huge places in my heart. I love to do both

                      I take that as a huge compliment. Thank you.

                              In that case, I'm afraid you may have been misinterpreting me.




                              I'm working on a list guys... I swear it.
