I seen this at another forum that I 'browse' sometime, and just thought it something nice, for fun. What is something or are some things about you that people would be surprised to know?

*When I first moved to U.S., I could speak more Spanish then English!

*I am an insane 'cleaning' person, and even will dry my toothbrush so it will not drip on sink

*I would like to go through medical school someday

*I am wary of horses and cats, but like snakes!

*I am addicted to the television show 'Survivor'!

How of anyone else? What would other people be surprised by?

Leosha

The SECOND interesting topic today! \:D

Hmmmmm......

I like showtunes, but I HATE most "gay male" icons (Judy Garland/Liza Minelli).

I didn't get "The English Patient." (Only those who remember the stir the movie created a few years back will understand this)

I enjoy "so-bad-they're-good" movies and books, but will NEVER admit which ones (unless you catch me at the wrong time, like with one in my hand!).

I read FOUR Sunday newspapers per week.

I don't like reality shows, but I can TALK about them expertly.

I collect useless trivia (Okay, so NOBODY is surprised by this).

I read poetry publically.

Usually my own ( \:D ).

While I have a weakness for alcohol, I don't really enjoy the taste, except for Guinness, Goldschlager, and various schnapps.

Okay, I'll stop now....

Peace and love,

Scot

Suprising about me?
I do not drink. Haven't had alcohol in over a year.
I want to join a fraternity. (Kind of conflicts with the first one)
I have well over a thousand songs memorized by heart. (So many I have lost count)
I own over 450 cd's.
At one time, I owned 3 guitars and could not play any of them.
People never believe me when I tell them my age. I have looked like I was 19 since I was 16. And I am almost 28.
I have absolutely no skill at asking a woman out or telling her how I feel.
I am also addicted to Survivor.
I could be the next American Idol!!!!!!

Surprising things about me.

1. I do not watch what is on TV; I watch what else is on TV.

2. I have no interest in professional sports. like football , hockey and baseball.

3. I like the xgames and what the young people do for the fun of it now.

4. Watching figure skating makes me cry. I hate to admit that. It is the elegance and emotion that get to me.

5. I am a pain in the ass a lot of times. I bet nobody knew that \:D

6. I have spent my entire working life helping others manage their money and am completely lost when it comes to my own finances.

7. I tend to be a slob with periodical moments of neatness.

8. I love anything mathematical because it is so clear.

One other thing......

I so loved the musical "Chicago" that I perform two numbers obsessively and well - "All That Jazz" and "Razzle Dazzle"

And no, I don't "dress up" when I do "All That Jazz." But I absolutely LOVE Bebe Neuwirth.

Peace and love,

Scot

When I do grocery shopping I work out how much things cost down to the smallest unit ("this orange juice is $2.50? Why, that's 4 cents an ounce!")

but, I cannot read or make a graph.

Ok, SAR, grab a piece of paper. Draw two lines which meet at the bottom left corner. At the bottom left corner place a zero. going up the line on the left side write in increments the number of ounces of orange juice (1-??) and label it ounces. Now, across the bottom wite in increments of 4 (0,4,8,12,16,20,....2.50) and label it cents. Now, match where they meet and place a dot. One ounce = 4 cents, 2 ounces = 8 cents, three ounces = 12 cents, etc.....2.50. Draw a line between the dots, and you have a graph.

If only I could post a picture of what that graph would look like! (if you're thinking eraser holes and the most poorly drawn line since kindergarten, you're on the right track) \:D

and then I wouldn't be able to read it \:D

I write poetry.
(Of course in my native language not in English)
During years I developed my own style and prepared two thematically different books just for my enjoyment.
Words are like magic spells. Their combination can build new worlds, can make other people to be very happy or sad, possibilities are endless.

I am very fulfilled and happy when I have inspiration. Usually I am drained, without ideas for months and then suddenly it happens like volcano eruption.
This is my big secret. There are just few persons that know this about me.

* I look macho and rough on the outside, but inside, I am soft and delicate. Little things make me cry.

* I'm from the south and I couldn't care less about NASCAR.

* I HATE Hockey.

* I LOVE to watch Ice Skating.

* I only watch sports and factual programing on TV. I don't need reality shows, my own reality is enough for me.

* My favorite movie is "When Harry Met Sally"

* I think Meg Ryann is the hotest woman I have ever seen.

* My nick name was "Opie" when I was in the Navy. I don't know why, I don't look like him. I guess its because I am from North Carolina.

* My best friend calls me "Skippy" for some reason. I haven't figured that out yet.

* Don't watch TV much but favourite prog, happy days, addams family and diffrent strokes

* Weakness is, always fixing things for neighbours and getting nothing in return

* My mind is like a calculator when shopping, always working out which is the best buy, but sometimes/a lot of times, buying things I don't need!!

* Strength, people always tell me their secrets, because they know I am so good at keeping them, wonder where I got that one from!

* Love to watch movies of either coming of age, or movies like the matrix, superman, xmen even the circus, best of all though imax movies, got the whole set somehow

* Music like llewellyn, hearts of space, celtic, ethnic, quite a long list here

* Cycling, walking, in any weather, prefer the spring with the chorus' of birds in meadows, watching owls at sundown, or listening to the wading birds in twilight as the sun goes over the horizon

the list is endless

Something that no one would ever guess...

I was a member of the university dance choir and my partner was the state beuaty queen (she came in 16th for Miss America) the year that She and I did a "command preformance" for the Indiana state governor. She in her sparkly gown and me in my tux...Now that is something that no one would EVER guess.
