Not a shred. I'm very boringly down to earth.

That said, I'm from a long line of sailors and fishermen, so some things are ingrained in me. The most frequent one is that I will literally seek out wood to knock on, and not phone it in with a knock on my head or whatever. It's probably my main concession to my heritage (that and a mean lobster roll).

"This month Friday the thirteenth fell on a Thursday."...Pogo

 

While I would like to think that I wasn't superstitious, there are a few superstitions that seem valid. Most of them pertain to baseball...baseball can at times be a pretty spooky game.

What is your favorite outdoor activity, and is it seasonally affected?

Kayak fishing/birding

 

Very much so as it works best when the water is not as hard as it is now.

I feel like saying whether I am or not is going to tempt the universe to go against me, and I've got enough problems already... ironically, answering the way in which I did may place me on a side of that answers your question.

In certain ways and with certain things, I tend to come up with my own most of the time (such as the link between tornado attacks and my beef marinade). Mostly though I just follow the vibe as it were, and something sets off my sense of "this ain't right" I get the elf outta there. Which has on past occasions been extremely useful and I've dodged some bullets that way. On the other end of that, the highly turned nature of the Aquarian nervous system means that occasionally it misfires and I end up getting in a knife fight with a wind sock, under the assumption that it's some bodyless entity attempting to invade the kitchen.

Nope. When your faith cites as its founder a guy who looks at rocks in a hat for mystical reasons, you don't need superstition.

I’m not particularly superstitious about the regular stuff. I broke so many mirrors growing up I have bad luck into my 60s, we always opened umbrellas in the house (put them in the tub to dry), and my first cat was black. 
 

However, I do tend to give people crap about saying negative things that then come to pass. Negative thoughts become negative words, which become negative actions. No thanks! Keep it positive folks!

Have you ever attended school or worked in another State, Province or Country?

I was in the Navy, so Yes to every possible permutation of the question.

I almost answered "No", because for most of my life, every school I've attended or job I worked has been in the state of Oregon.  But then I remembered that for the first six years of my life, my parents lived just across the Columbia river in Washington state.  So, I guess that kindergarten and first grade count?

Except for a short stint in the Pittsburgh, PA area I have always lived, worked and been educated in Ohio. I know that sounds kind of boring on paper. But I've developed a deep appreciation for this state and its people as a result. From the mutants on the east side of Toledo all the way down to the hillbillies on the Appalachian plateau, I've met good and interesting folks. And it's been quite an honor working on preserving as much of the beauty of the state as I can on their behalf.
