Short List

November 16th, 2006 at 11:44 pm

This one is only 10 items long because I really need to go to bed.

1) When I get scared on my motorcycle, to distract myself I sing the song Chris Farley sang in "Tommy Boy" over and over again: "Fat man in a little suit! Fat man in a little suit!"

2) I won a spelling bee in the 6th grade.

3) I won $24 in a karaoke contest singing "Puttin' On The Ritz."

4) According to a certificate my uncle got me from the "International Star Registry", there is a magnitude 12 star (veeeeeeery dim) in Centaurus "officially" named after me.

5) One of my goals is to have a picture taken of me puzzling over a map in front of an Albuquerque city limits sign, so I can add a caption of the Bugs Bunny line, "I think I made a wrong turn at Albuquerque!"

6) My favorite job was working at the public library in high school.

7) I bought my first car for $90, and the next morning it got towed and I had to pay $100 to get it back.

8) The most famous person who has ever ridden in my cab is former SF Mayor Willie Brown. I drove over a curb right at the end of the trip.

9) I have been to the Johnstown Flood Museum in Johnstown, PA.

10) Another goal is to have my picture taken while straddling the San Andreas fault. I have not yet researched where (if at all) this can be done without trespassing or injuring myself.

    Oh yeah, I've heard about #4 before, but I've never heard about anyone doing it until now. Very cool! Smile

    Albuquerque is on my list of cities to visit/revisit! I'll have to remember that idea for a picture!
    When I was a kid, my grandparents had a story about the Johnstown flood--Reader's Digest, I believe. I read that thing so many times. I am such a history geek.

    #5 & 10 are funny. My family did something similar to that at the Continental Divide in Wyoming or Colorado, wherever it is. I was too young to "get it" as my dad tried to direct the photoshoot.
    #4- Yes, we Chinese are quite fond of karaoke! On some vacations, we even used the tour bus microphone to sing (in Chinese). The driver was annoyed but we tipped him well (for putting up with us)
