From Miss604 I've been asked to list five things about me that you don't know. Since the request coincided nicely with the nostalgia of New Year's Day, along with a recent re-viewing of High Fidelity, it seemed a good opportunity to flex my Top Five muscle.
Jobs I've held (paid or volunteer) have included working on a local cable-access television program, professional musician, summer camp counselor, church youth director, cashier and assistant manager of a restaurant, shoe salesman, bookstore clerk, internet support technician, project manager, and software architect. It's strange to look back and think these were all the same me.
I'd never eaten a turnip until I was in my twenties.
In university I studied Psychology, with a year-long switch to Pre-Medicine and back, a minor in English. In order to still finish in four years, the Pre-Med stuff got turned into electives. Most people had electives like Film Studies, or Humanities for Non-Majors; mine were all Biology II and Genetics.
When I was about nine years old, I found myself locked in my parents' bedroom while they were having sex. It was the longest half hour of my life. Somehow I still turned out mostly normal.
I'm allergic to bivalve molluscs. Clams, oysters, scallops. And, yes, mussels. Oh the irony, I know.
