I enjoy designing three layer wedding style cakes using 180 Pampers diapers for baby showers.

"I wish" is my middle name, and I wish life came with a 'do-over' option just like kick ball does.

I'm an Internet junkie.

I plan vacations that I'll never take in excruciating detail.

Daydreaming is my drug of choice.

I'm 39 and still don't feel like a grown up.

I can't speak for Michael-- somehow I don't think he'd want me posting random stuff about him on the internets while he's on vacation. As for me:

*I don't drink caffeine
*I have several forms of synesthesia (honestly not as exciting as it's cracked up to be)
*I speak almost fluent Japanese, though I write it at about a 3rd grade level (I'm being generous)
*I'm allergic to flouride

How fascinating. I'd never heard of this and just looked it up. I had never thought it pertinent to mention that I have always assigned gender and personality to numbers, letters, colors, and the names of the days and months. I've been doing it since kindergarten at least. It really has been a great memory tool. I don't experience numbers having a color, though. I suspect I'm not diagnosable but (as we say in psychology) I have features.

Maybe it's the caffeine deprivation. :) I don't drink it either.

You might want to prepare yourself for a shock
Spoiler:
I was the class clown/punching bag in high school.
It's true.

1. I find it hard to stay focused. When I'm writing, I'll constantly get new ideas for other works, leading to me getting sidetracked rather easily. But I've been
working on fixing that (especially now that I have crit partners who might be counting on quick responses).
2. I graduated high school at fifteen, despite my sometimes questionable work ethic (see number 1). I attribute it to luck and determination rather than brains.
3. I daydream LOTS; practically half my waking hours are spent doing it. Seeming innocuous details could set me off on mental tangents that span hours. It's crazy.
But at least they (usually) go somewhere useful.
4. Sorry Margo and sbs_mjc1, but I practically live off caffeine.
5. My immune system is a total crapshoot. A-choo.
6. Whenever I get fed up (read: too distracted to go any further) with writing/editing/critting, I play either video games or the piano. Sadly, with the former, I
tend to lose track of time. Yet another thing that needs fixing...
7. I was in pretty much the same mold as Watcher in high school (perhaps a bit lower on the food chain), though thankfully I avoided the latter treatment
somehow. Maybe because I was so small and hard to catch.

I was the "you're gonna kick my @, but you're gonna know you were in a fight" guy. I hated bullies and I used to p them off on purpose. None of them fought me more than once.

Ah, the chivalrous knave. If I had been any good in a fight, I might have been that way. Still, there were other ways of getting them back...

I love ranch dressing on just about everything.

I constantly worry about school through I make good grades.


I'm born under the year of the monkey in the chinese zodiac.

No, I haven't thought of that yet, lol. But I have had it with seafood, chicken, rice, and I think sushi. Pretty much any food you can think about expect cheese. That's another thing about me, I'm not the biggest cheese fan.

I can pour coffee from the Black and Decker coffee-maker carafe without dripping coffee all over the counter.

I hate math, but am obsessed with numbers.

Also, like Fenris, I daydream waay too much.

I love to read about nature, yet I don't enjoy going outside.

I really enjoy nonfiction and quirky, funny stories

I was on The Weakest Link.

I've been kissed my Muhammad Ali.

I prefer to lick the cheese off the nacho-cheese Doritos rather than eat the entire chip.

I still, to this day, won't stay in a dark bathroom because I fear spontaneously saying 'Bloody Mary' three times.

I, too, have synaesthesia: I sometimes get temperature and sound-volume confused. I don't know how often this happens; the first time I noticed was when I got some fajitas at a restaurant and caught myself shushing them instead of blowing on them to cool them off. And I have a LOT of trouble deciding if I'm supposed to turn down the radio or the air conditioning in the car.

I really hate living in Florida. I'm too far north for the 'tropical paradise' thing the tourism boards like to talk about, and all the people are ugly with strange double-chins, even on otherwise slender women.

I prefer reading reference books to novels, including dictionaries and the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual. I worry that this does not bode well for my writing career.

I prefer bad movies to good ones, although there are plenty out there that are so bad I can't enjoy them. (ZARDOZ, for example.)

Due to a childhood trauma, I am terrified of crabs, lobsters, and other crustaceans, but bugs and spiders are just fine.
