Today's meme is (mercifully) very short.

List five perhaps little-known facts about yourself that make you uniquely you.


TWISTED LINGUISTICS has Words Gone Wild today.

These three, as best I can tell, all refer to odd sexual practices among a certain genus of primates:

waisting time
butthanks
forked tounge

recoupe - A refurbished automobile.

the borads - Actually, this one may also belong in the "weird sex" category.

knowone said - What that actually means is that someone DID say it, and that person is identifiable.

selfiness - Describes one who is just insufferably prissy.

1. Something always happens to me. Consider that I went for a simple hike on Friday and ended up with poison oak and my eye is almost swollen shut now. I’d just gotten over 7 weeks of healing broken ribs from a ski trip. Consider the following: I’ve been in two of the top 15 biggest storms ever recorded: Hurricane Gilbert and Super Typhoon Zeb. Got staff infection in Brazil. The bus I was on to go rafting in Costa Rica caught on fire and dumped us out on a remote highway. The plane I was on coming back from Brazil had flames coming out of one of its two engines while over the Amazon. I commuted by bike to work for 3 years and was hit 5 times by cars. I got adult Chicken Pox. I just happened to be there for the big earthquake in San Francisco. Car engine burnt out in the middle of the Mojave desert. This list goes on….

2. I never learned how to write in cursive. I learned how to curse though. I could print so fast and neat in school, nobody ever made me finish learning cursive.

3. I’ve been to 40 different countries and 30 different states. I average about 5 new countries per year to visit. I have a long list of places I still want to see.

4. If there are stupid or crazy things to do, I’ve probably tried them. I’ve climbed a 200 foot cliff without a rope. I’ve jumped off a 65 foot bridge. I’ve ridden my bike 200 miles in half a day. I’ve run a marathon without any training. I’ve walked through the Watts area in LA by myself after midnight. I’ve been in a car jacking situation and managed to escape with my car.

5. I take the Mensa qualification tests about every 3 or 4 years just for fun and though I do pass, I never join. That would be too elitist.

Serena Joy said...

S'okay, /t. I've been gibbled for about the last 48 hours. I actually rather like it. Are you SURE you want me to fill in your blanks? That could lead to all kinds of trouble.:D

VE, I'm in awe of the exciting life you lead. I'd be dead after trying a fraction of the stuff you've done. I've never taken the Mensa test; I'm too scared to find out how badly I'd flunk.:)

Charles said...

1. fingerprints
2. DNA
3. Dental patterns
4. Retinal blood vessel patterns
5. footprints

Although you may think, I knew that, you don't know mine.

Simon Sterwin said...

Some travel-based facts about me.

1. I speak three languages fluently.
2. I have lived and worked in five countries.
3. I worked as a market trader in a village 2 miles from the equator.
4. I lived for six months with a Count and a Countess in the South of France.
5. I have eaten a bowl of fish eyes
(because I had to,
not for pleasure.)

All true, I promise.

Hale McKay said...

Waisting time that excruciating moment when trying to pull her panty hose over hips

butthanks sometimes called butt hankies - another name for toilet paper

forked tounge he might have been a bad speller and a liar, but she liked to lie back and just listen

Serena Joy said...

I never even thought of that, Charles. Kudos for such an original and thought-provoking answer.:)

Fascinating biographical info, Simon. I think you were living in Paris when I "met" you, so these intriguing tidbits are new to me. My God, man, somebody FORCED you to eat fish eyes? Ugh!:)

LOL at your definitions, Mike. It's so great to have other minds working on these things. The stuff I learn! I do think, however, that I've changed my mind about the "forked tounge." I now believe it refers to a peculiar sex thing practiced by garden gnomes.:)

G-Man said...

1. I've swam the English Channel
2. I've climbed Mt. Everest..ALONE!
3. I was on Apollo 9
4. Bill Gates owes me 20 Bucks and won't pay!!
5. I have a secret admiration for Red-Heads with pretty feet, and a fantastic shoe collection!!

...OK, on #2..?
I DID have a Sherpa guide...sorry.xox

Skunkfeathers said...

Waisting time: not sexual, but more culinary in some cultural circles, as it references time expended in expanding/shrinking the waistline. More often more than less.

Butthanks: in some cultures, a belch is considered a compliment to the chef; a fart would, thereby, be considered table-clearing critique of same. Except in Newark.

forked tounge: a gifted teen who can spear beanie-weenies widdout using his/her hands.

Five facts about me regarding travel:
1. I have.
2. I will again.
3. I might to the same place.
4. I might to a different place.
5. I won't by camel.

Serena Joy said...

That's an impressive list, Galen. Tell me, is it true what they say about Sherpas? About the debt Gates owes you, I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a number you could call. It might cost you more than $20, but what the hell. It's the principle of the thing. So, you know Ann-Margret well enough to have seen her shoe collection? Huzzah!:D

Serena Joy said...

LOL, SF. That's why I stay out of Newark. Plus, culinary stuff can lead to sexual stuff pretty quickly -- especially in Newark. I don't know if they allow camels there. If so, things could get pretty dicey.:D

Serena Joy said...

What's good for the goose... Yeah, that means I'm answering my own meme today.

5 heretofore unknown facts about me:

1. When I was little, I used to ask my mother all the time if I was sure I belonged to her, even if she was sure I was originally from Earth.

2. My mother taught me the alphabet when I was between 4 and 5, but not how to read. That, I figured out on my own. When I told her one day I could read, she slapped me for lying. Then I sat down and read a page of the newspaper to her. She didn't apologize.

3. 3 times I've been told I had conditions which needed surgical correction. I went home and promptly put it out of my mind all 3 times. The next time I saw the doctor in each instance, the condition had completely disappeared.

4. I can regress to the mindset of a 14-year-old in about 60 second flat when provoked.

5. I can speak, sing, yell, even yodel, but I cannot whistle. And believe me, I've tried. The looks dogs give me at the noises I make hurt me. Why can't I whistle?

Serena Joy said...

Heh! The Wicked Witch of the West was late getting here today. Must have been a broomstick malfunction. Too bad it didn't crash and burn.

Serena Joy said...

Crap, I don't proofread my own crap. My #1 should have read, I used to ask my mother if SHE was sure...:)

G-Man said...

Ann-Margret..??
There is another Hot Red-Head named Margaret..?

Serena Joy said...

A lot of guys think Ann-Margret EPITOMIZES hot.:D

Hale McKay said...

Yikes! You're getting me started to thinking about redheads - but I'll keep it clean.

Serena Joy said...

Oh? Another redhead fan? Just so you guys know, there's a Web site somewhere that features famous redheads. I'll have to see if I can dig it out for you.:D

G-Man said...

This site about Red-Heads will do just fine Thank You!!

Pink said...

1. my hair isn't really hair. Its candy floss.

2. I don't use moisturiser and I never tan to get that healthy sheen. I use varnish.

3. I hate the colour pink

4. I've had my boobs done - whats a little more silicone for a girl like me.

5. People always think I have no brains between my two ears. They somehow think beauty is skin deep and boys...well they just take me around wanting me to pose for them like some kind of barbie doll.

Mona said...

My love, My hate, My dreams...

Serena, You are not going to believe this, I have a strange phenomenon working on me.

It is that if I get a bruise today, it will reappear in same shape exactly after a year on the SAME date , at the same place, & tis process keeps on repeating itself for years. It usually fades within a week's time. Some people feel I may be doing it to myself subconsciously, But I don't think so, because I have to think hard to be able to recollect the happening that caused it in the first place! Even it is a bee sting, I get a sting mark for a few days later next year at the same time. Even an injection needle mark appears on my arm at the given exact date! Now isn't that strange?

My sleep patterns, that are little known, or can be little predicted even by myself, to me!

Serena Joy said...

Although NTAN, Galen, you're welcome.:D

Okay, who is this impostor? The real Pinks would never blaspheme and say she hates the color pink.:)

My word, Mona, that is a strange phenomenon. Have you ever asked your doctor about it? I'd be very interested in hearing how he/she explained it.:)

snowelf said...

Guess what! I'm gonna do five things on my blog on Saturday--just for you SJ! :)

/t cracked me up!

And I loved that your asked your mother if you were from Earth!!
hehehe!

--snow

Serena Joy said...

I'll be sure and check it out Saturday, Snow. Have fun with it.

P.S. I'm pretty sure my mother has come to believe that I may not be from Earth.:)
