    I cannot believe I forgot this one. Yes, intellectually I know spiders serve a valuable role in the eco system, but they are evil evil EVIL! (And if it were up to me, they would all be dead and gone and kaput and extinct.)

    They creep me out.

    But I am fascinated by them. When I was young, I wouldn't be able to even touch the pages of those books with full-page zoom shots of spiders (where they do a closeup on the head). I'd drop the book and leap back. But I still had to look -- so I would get something to flip the page with or just very carefully grab the corners of the page, to turn it.

    And I also did the "feed bugs to spider" thing. Spiders are very alien to me in how they move and act and look, so I'm filled with both terror and curiosity.

    I like spiders. I mean, I don't want them crawling on me or anything, but if they are in the house I don't kill them. Often I leave them undisturbed or occasionally I'll try to move them outside.

    I just scream loudly and either make someone else kill the thing, or else cower and throw things at it from a distance until it's dead, preferably while standing on something, with a sheet or something to shield it from getting on me. I don't like spiders or any other small, crawling creatures. I once actually managed to kill one by using a pencil as a dart from about six feet away. You'd be surprised what you can do when you're that scared of something.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    5. I watch Charlie the Unicorn and Adam West's Cat Launcher every day and still laugh my shtuckus off every time!

    8. I am allergic to doing things logically and making sense but I enjoy watching people who do.
    9. I can quote from any Seinfeld episode.
    10. I am very intense and feel things it seems a 100 times more intensely then other people.
    11. I have a hard time controlling my empathy and take on other people's emotions too easily- I am trying to get better and more balanced but it is hard because I have to be constantly aware of this.
    12. I love performing but not entertaining, I am a kosher ham.

    25. I feel misunderstood in life about 85 percent of the time, and I don't bother in trying to correct things either- either people get me or they don't-I am like an emotional studio 54- the true believers who instantly for some reason just get me may pass and all of who I am is shared with them only.

    Oh, that was terrible, when my kids showed it to me.

    It was as big a hit at our house as JibJab's "Jingle Bells"-Farting Elves cartoon.

    That reminds me of the Happy Sadist from "A Wrinkle in Time" (or whatever her name was!)

    You are SUCH a trip!

    1. I've lived my whole life in medium/big cities around the Great lakes (mostly in the Chicago area)

    2. My mom's side of the family were mostly small town people or farmer types (basically hicks from their descriptions) until 1-2 generations ago.

    3. They mostly lived in northwest Ohio near where it meets Indiana and Michigan

    4. My dad's side of the family comes from New York state mostly.

    5. Ancestors and relatives on that side include a lot of Harvard, Yale, and other elite college types. (The families have most closer together in those terms, my dad and mom met and university of Michigan.0

    6. 4 years ago or so I memorized the states in order of their 2000 populations. I think I could still remember most of them, though some low population ones are a bit iffy. I definitely can name all 50 states by pretty much going over a map in my head. (I remember northeast first, than southeast, than go west ot the Mississippi river states, etc.)

    7. I completed most of my required math courses for college during high school, and could have completed them all if I didn't take a break on them in senior year.

    8. I like the fatty parts of steaks, chicken, and other beef, and I like butter, but don't like really greasy food.

    9. I tend to make up a lot of ideas for computer games (whether variations of ones I play or combinations of types.), but never really flesh them out.

    10. I learned most of my high school chemistry that could be learned by reading during midle school. I did something similar earlier with the quadratic equation.

    11. My best school subject has shifted from math to science over the years in college I'm doing mostly science and engineering related stuff so can't see whether it would shift some more (to economics or something similar.)

    12. I find thermodynamics very interesting at the moment (plus areas closely related to thermodynamics.)

    13. In RPG type computer games such as diablo or world of warcraft, I tend to start a lot of characters and never "complete" them, because I like to try out everything but level up slowly.

    14. Tacos are probably my overall favorite food (most kinds of tacos taste great to me.)

    15/ I've probably been on vacation in Michigan and Upstate New York (areas near I-90) the most, Michigan because of grandparents mainly, New York for various random reasons, plus driving through there to an uncle in Boston.

    16. I like slightly cool weather, anywhere between around 40/50 to 70 Fahrenheit is the perfect temperature zone for me.

    17.
    I love thunderstorms.
    18. I'm currently a chemical engineering major in college

    19. I can't swim

    20. I used to (and still do somewhat) enjoy figuring out highway interchanges.

    21. I tend to enjoy learning about and figuring out science and history related stuff the most, though any sort of complex subject can be interesting.

    22. I don't have a lot of friends, for some reason I never seem to really "stick to" people.

    23. I prefer buzz cuts, with a beard and mustache, just because it's easier to keep maintained.

    24. Recently when I'm at my house, I tend to just go around naked because I stay cooler (This is unless I want a breeze or more sunlight, where I put some clothes on and open the windows.)

    25. I used to really, really not like dogs (until recently when I had to spend some time with some really bad ones, now all dogs seems much less annoying in comparsion.)

    Heh. I just showed that one to Don a day or two ago. He was watching it again yesterday afternoon and we were both doing pastel unicorn impressions.
