Ten things

Inspired by my favorite heathen, Whitters, here is a list of 10 statistically improbable things I've done (or things I've done that most people haven't):

1. Been bitten by 6 dogs. All at different times. All traumatic!
2. Had a baby in high school.
3. Dropped out of high school.
4. Got my tubes tied at age 22.
5. Gone to college. At age 34.
6. Flown an airplane.
7. Gotten arrested.
8. Been stalked.
9. Live 400 steps from the Pacific Ocean.
10. Owned and ridden a motorcycle as my only form of transport.

Dang, I'm special! Just like you! What 10 things have you done that are different than the rest of us?

Wow--I haven't done any of those. And I LOVE THIS MEME! I'm going to do it later. :)

I can only hope that the story for #7 is forthcoming and that it's as interesting as it sounds. (not that #8 isn't also interesting)

10 things? OK, I'll give it a go.

1. Grew up in AK. Seen the northern lights, had the long days/long nights, that whole bit.

2. Played international futbol when I was 16 (played tournaments in Helsinki, Stockholm, and a little town in Denmark named Fredrikshavn (or something like that)). For the record, no, I wasn't a great player. I can admit that. I was good enough to go, though.

3. Accidentally stuck my hand in a bee hive. At that time, I had never previously been stung by a bee.

4. Once drank 9 full beers in 12 minutes. I puked once at the 3 beer mark, and one more time around the 7th or 8th beer.

5. Was once ticketed for urinating in public. It was like, a $150 fine.

6. Drove from Phx, AZ to Jax, FL by myself. Road trip! It was an easy drive, though... I just took I-10 the entire way.

7. Monuments visited - the Painted Desert, the Petrified Forest (both in AZ), and, of couse, the World's Tallest Thermometer.

8. Once gave my boxers to a stranger at a bar. Hey, it was for a bachelorette party. (it wasn't THAT fun of a night, though. later, someone else called me a "fucking chink" and told me that my kind wasn't wanted in that bar. nice, huh?)

9. Speaking of bullshit, I once had my ID checked against a listing of known terrorists. It must have been the thick accent, middle eastern clothes, and the muslim religious symbols I always wear. Oh, wait. I don't have an accent, I was wearing plain ol' shorts and a t-shirt, and I'm not religious at all. Go figure.

Can't close on a sour note, so...

10. Met Ron Jeremy. Attended the AVN Expo for 5 straight years. Hell, some of the stars actually recognize me, now.
