Do Not Remove This Tag, Under Penalty of Law
I've just been tagged by Anjou Wu.
It seems that I need to share three little-known things about me in a variety of categories. Read into these what you will...
Three places where I had near-death experiences:
The Outer Banks of North Carolina
St. Paul, Minnesota
Three songs that inevitably bring a lump to my throat:
"Here Come the Warm Jets" -- Brian Eno
"Lights" -- Victoria Williams
"Pale Blue Eyes" -- The Velvet Underground
Three habits that routinely get me into trouble:
Trusting my memory
Reading news instead of engaging in more productive activities
Falling out of touch with much-loved friends
Three weird traits of my body:
My hands are unusually double-jointed.
Even though I am calm and collected, my blood pressure will plummet to dangerously low levels if I know that I am getting a shot or having blood drawn.
I experience occasional visual migraine symptoms without the accompanying pain.
Three things in my office:
A 100-year-old chair perched atop a file cabinet
Three things I'd love to do:
Open a bizarre little museum
Live in Bali for a year or two
Learn to build interesting furniture
Three things that make me panic:
House centipedes (the long-legged ones, even though they are actually beneficial)
Stark, freshly-carpeted, off-white-walled spaces
Large crowds of white people
Three folks I've tagged:
