This is a meme sort of thing going around on Facebook, I liked it a lot and may add more stuff to it in time. Decided I would post it here and share. Do it if you like, comment if you like.

25 Random Things You May or May Not Know (or care) About Me

Instructions: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose up to 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.

(To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag up to 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)

1. When I was 14, my friends threw a party for me at school when they realized that I had finally reached 5 feet tall.

2. I have lived all my life in California, except for 2 years in Washington State, and 2 years in Chile.

3. My left foot is one half size smaller than my right, which makes buying shoes interesting.

4. I still consider Washington State to be my home, my family lives there, and home is where Mom is.

5. I have been a Monty Python fan since I was a freshman in high school when I first saw Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Before that I kept seeing the show advertised in the TV guild but kept thinking I was looking for an actual Circus.

6. I am actually a very shy person, I mask it by being an extrovert, but its just an act.

7. I have been singing for as long as I can remember. My father would bring home albums and play them over and over till I had the song learned, then he would make me sing for his friends. I full filled a special dream by joining the Broadside Music Hall last year to sing Music Hall and perform on Mad Sal's stage.

8. I was never close to my father, in fact he was most of the time my tormentor. Though I was not happy when he died, I did have sort of a sigh of relief thought I mourned the relationship we would never be able to develop.

9. In the 80's I experimented with drugs. I was very clear about what I wanted to know from them, and only took specific ones. In the end I stopped because I really didn't have time for them, (recovery time from it was longer than I really could afford at the time) I didn't have the money for it, (though some were down right cheap) and they started wanting me to think about stuff that I didn't want to think about. I am allergic to pot, so that one is out, and there were only three others I experimented with, though I had plans to try a couple of others, I could never get my hands on them.

10. I love Absinthe, and use to make a version of it myself which I shared with friends, they seemed to like it alot.

11. I hate moving, and looking for a job. I have been known to stay in both bad living situations, and bad jobs for way too long because I hate doing that so much.

12. I realized years ago that I would never be considered really attractive, so have vowed to never become an eyesore.

13. I learned when I was in my teens that I should never give my mom what i thought was an impossible task. She once asked us what we thought about moving to Washington state. I told her that I would only do it if I got a horse. That summer we moved up there to a farm sort of setting and indeed I got my horse. Half Arab, Half Appaloosa, all white with black spots.

14. From the time that I was very young my father told me that I would never be loved, only tolerated. It has made accepting love from others very hard to believe. There are only a small handful of people I have ever been able to believe it from.

15. I believe in being honest above all else and have been known to end friendships and love relationships if I find I am being lied to. I will however not go out of my way to hurt someone I love by bludgeoning them with the truth.

16. I have studied things like Kashmir Shaivism (complex form of Hindu philosophy), Orisha Dillogun (Philosophical divination system from Nigeria) Raja Yoga. I have sort of gone native with each of them, embracing them as my own. I find that there is really little contradictory in them.

17. I think that laughter is the most important thing in the world, next to love. I laugh all the time, and look for something funny in almost every situation.

18. I have a profound sense of appropriateness, and know when not to laugh.

19. I've been working the Renaissance Fair for 25 years. I have been the oldest member of the court at northern fair for the past 5 years.

20. Some of my closest friends I met at the fair, its one of the few reasons I stay living in California.

21. I am a consummate Chocoholic, though I have learned to only eat a small amount of it, well at least till I am skinny enough to warrant it again.

22. I struggle with depression though I try not to let people see it.

23. I have no interest in sports of any kind, part of his is because my father was such an avid sports fan, and kept trying to force me to be interested, but discouraged me from actually playing them in high school, when I said I wanted to try out for the foot ball team in high school, and part of it is because I was never any good at it, I seem to have almost no ability or interest in catching "the Ball" or in running unless someone is chasing me with the threat of bodily harm.

24. When I was living in Washington, we used to show our horses at local horse shows and at the County Fair. I took a blue ribbon in a class that the former owner of my horse was unable to even place in because the horse in question was unmanageable for him, his mother was furious because we were from California and I shouldn't have been able to deal with her (the horse's name was Suzy).

25. I moved to San Diego in 1998, partly to get away from the bay area, where I had been convinced that I had no friends, and to start a new life there. With the exception of some people who became very close friends, the over all experience was very hard on me. I had gone from knowing tons so people to being secluded in a section of town where I knew no one, spent most of my time in bad jobs during a time where there were no good jobs to be had. I ended up being single and solo for the past 10 years and at this point in time, have little hope that this status will change. I think I have lost the ability to meet potential partners. I remain with a very small amount of hope but am figuring that I will be alone for the rest of my life. I think I will eventually get to where I am fine with that.
