Getting to know You in May

What is something about yourself you think most people don't know?

That is a long list, I'm a fairly private person.

 

Considering the audience, I'll share the pot roast story.

After a lengthy broccoli base discussion on this forum, Ron exasperatedly typed he didn't really care what we called the bases, we could call a pot roast a base.  So I took that as a challenge and based a mini on a pot roast, made a little vignette and included wine pairing with the presentation. 

 

Of course, the forum upgrades have made this hard to track down, but it is out there.

Twice I was on the 2nd place Boomerang team in the US.  One year I was ranked 36th in the nation as a boomeranger.

I play Native American flutes.  I tend to play with an impromptu style making up what I play as I do.  One of my performances was recorded in the field by the production company for "Finding Bigfoot" and was used on a couple of their episodes (I gave them free use permission).  I tend to play mostly when I am camping.

People tend to be surprised at how much I like cute girly stuff. I tend to give off a cool vibe rather than a cute one. I don't wear pink, or dresses, or makeup (unless it's for cosplay) so people think of me more like a tough tomboy, but I have been known to squee over shiny stickers.

I've never had a cavity. Also, I have a bunch of tattoos, but they aren't anywhere visible to anyone but my wife.

 

There's a whole bunch of other stuff. But trust me when I say that none of it is appropriate to discuss on here.

I attended and completed high school in Berlin, Germany, at a school that used to be for the families of US Army personnel and citizens stationed in West Berlin during the Cold War. During my time there, I played saxophone in a jazz ensemble that performed for the German Chancellor and the President of Finland. I also developed a severe addiction to an item of Turkish fastfood, the glorious döner kebab.

My friends usually know this but: I am 34 and don't have a driver's license, I have never even owned a vehicle. I did have a permit and eventually a license briefly, but I never used it. I have driven before, part of the test and all that, but I did not enjoy it. I live in a small-ish town and can easily walk to just about anything I need, or take the bus for some of the longer trips. I'd probably be a lot heavier than I already am if I didn't walk.

I know people tend to assume I have more tattoos, play more instruments, and am in more bands than the reality.

Oooh, so many things... Hmmm... Some of the forum probably already knows these, but I'm going to go with the reactions I get from random people, as well as customers.. 

 

- Many are surprised I don't have a personal vehicle. They're rather expensive to own and operate, oddly enough... But yet I'm a delivery driver. 

- Some of my coworkers firmly believe I only wear work clothing, and are rather surprised at the fact my personal clothing is typically black, with the occasional accent colour... That is assuming they even recognize me, lol

- Not many realize that I used to be heavily involved with Dance Dance Revolution (as well as In The Groove), and even had a handful of machine records across Alberta, and usually wound up in the top 10-15% of most tournaments that I attended, especially for doubles play (both pads at the same time) 

- I have a massive fascination with aviation - oh wait, that one's rather obvious to most lol

- I tend not to attend a certain parade not because of what it is, but because of two things: one, it's held in stupidly hot months and I don't like heat exhaustion (me and heat really don't get along well), and two, I wouldn't know which part of the community to March with.  Okay, the third is I don't like publicly advertising that either ::P:

- I have trouble keeping actual proper friends, like how most would define their "best friends", yet I value my friendships a LOT.  It's hard to put into actual words though. 

 

There's probably more, but some are things I hold rather close to my heart, and very few ever find out, if at all.

I collect cool looking coins, especially 50 pences. Nothing too rare, but I have a fascination with them. I don't go out of my way to buy the mint ones, but I check my change every time I go shopping. My favourites are a complete set of these London 2012 Olympic Games ones, the Arthur Conan Doyle one and the Beatrix Potter ones.

If it's something that most people don't know, there's probably a reason for that. ::P:

 

Here's one: I almost drowned when I was 6 or 7.

No sad faces,  obviously I didn't.  In fact it made me want to learn to swim better.

Name someone in the game industry you would like to meet in person. 

 

 

 

Being able to go to as many RCon as I have & the early ones too, I've met quite a few people I thought I'd never meet. Right now I think I'd like to meet Ben Siens. He's about the only Reaper artist (or has done for Reaper) that I haven't met & befriended yet.
