5 Things You May Not Know About Me + An Update

First off, I've been having some trouble with my ISP which has made loading page king of iffy. Sometimes I can and sometimes I can't. So for those of you on the WHB, if you don't get the post next week it's because I couldn't get it out.

Anyway, I've been tagged by Greta so I now have to tell you five things you may not know about me.

1. I'm afraid of the dark. I sleep with my stereo on that has a bright blue light on it.
2. I can pop my knuckles just by closing my fists.
3. I can't swim. When I was younger I almost drowned in the lake and ever since then I won't go in water deeper than my chest.
4. I have gray hair. Have ever since the 10th grade.
5. I apparently sound like a woman on the phone. In person I have a fairly deep voice, so go figure.

I tag John K, Za & Deo.

I'll just do it here. Although tempting to be silly and do "I live my entire life in a dark subterranean lair of evil", I'll be serious.

1. I'm hyperflexive. I can bend the fingers of my left hand back to an approximate 315 degree reflex angle (give or take).

2. I do gameplay design in my spare time for the Tyranid Mod for Dawn of War. We're currently in the top 100 nominated mods of the year.

3. I do not swim with other people. I find it too irritating.

4. My biological mother is a state masters silver medalist cyclist, horse trainer, and teaches university lecturers how to teach via the university's internet systems. I see her once a year. She was the one who introduced me to Green Day.

5. My favourite book of all time would have to be Dune.

I'll give it a shot considering Iam feeling generous this evening.

1. My father played professional Football for the old Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins for Don Shula

2. I have a strong affection for birds and secretly would like reincarnation to be true so I could come back as a raptor of some sort.

3. I flunked out of flight training in the Army because I was slightly red/green colorblind.

During the 1980's and early 90's; I whieght lifted 3 times a day seven days a week then got burned out and quit currently never having returned to a gym.(But I can still bench press well over 400pds.)

4. I helped Raytheon Corp devlop the Phased Array Radar system for The Patriot Missle Defense system in the eraly 1980's.

5. My female Cockatoo, Gabby loves to shower with me in the morning and loves to have me dry her feathers with a 1000 watt hairdryer.

Ok. Since Deo has not responded to the tag; I feel obligated to maybe make up things in her absence. Be advised Deo.
