Ten Random things

Ok so this time Mathman meme'd me, so here goes.

1. I grew up in PA, went to UNC-Asheville for my freshman year, moved to DE and finished my undergrad and then moved back to NC after an additional two years in DE. There is of course more to this story and of course it involves a girl, and it will be blogged about as I have been thinking about it for over a month now.

2. I played the clarinet in middle school and for short time in high school.

3. I was on the swim team from 5th grade till after my freshman year in high school.

4. My first "job" although I didn't get paid for it was working in the mornings for a summer at a horse farm.

5. My first real job was as a lifeguard and swim instructor all through high school. I still love to teach swimming and if I thought I could make enough money doing that, would probably want to do it full time.

6. I don't really like NYC and love DC. Although to be fair, I have not been to NYC since I was in high school and spent a summer in DC while I was in college.

7. I am thinking of getting a tattoo when I turn thirty next year.

8. I was the fairy godperson (it was supposed to be a fairy godmother, but because of my gender we did make it a a fairy godperson) in a version of Cinderella Wore Combat Boots in high school where I got to wear a tutu.

9. To add to the whole gender bending thing, during most of my freshman and sophomore years of college I painted my finger nails a variety of colors from green to blue to silver to a color that depending on the light was either maroon or a deep purple (my girlfriend at the time would not let me paint them black). I miss painting my finger nails sometimes as it was mildly relaxing and mindless, but I don't think that I should show up to work with painted finger nails.

10. I want to move to a Buddhist monastery at some point in my life for a period of time still to be determined.

I have no idea who to tag as I think that everyone I would tag has already done this and recently so if you see this and want to take it and run, then do it, just let me know that you are doing so. If no one does do it, then oh well.

What D-cap says!

Wow, I loved learning more about you Boxer. I find you such an interesting blogger with such great writing skills, your interest in books, movies and politics. That and you are a true educator from what I can tell.

If I had not just done this (and trust me - there are not 10 more things to say!) I would take you up on your challenge.

And you want to go to a Buddhist monastery, you are a man after my own heart. That is something that is very attractive to me, even if just for a weekend of silence and sitting.

Looking very much forward to more about your life story.

And come to NY, D-cap, Morse, Pissed, Spartacus and I will make sure you have a great visit.

I'm cool with the tattoo idea, as long as you don't get a Tasmanian Devil or a Drunken Daffy Duck.

You know, I am beginning to think that we are spiritual twins in a strange sort of way.....

I am glad everyone enjoyed this foray into my life one more time.

Fairlane- No it will not be a cartoon character, the two tattoos that I am oscillating between are both Hebrew words.

GG- I sometimes think the same thing

Yes on the tat. And I get you on the nail polish. It is relaxing to paint your nails, isn't it? And to do it right, after you're done painting them, you have to sit and relax more while the polish dries.
