1.  I've broken my left thumb and right middle fingers, but not at the same time
2.  I'm scared of roaches
3.  I was co-editor in chief of my high school yearbook and originally went to college for graphic design (then switched to English, then quit)
4.  I played the cello for 8 years.  I still have it and fight the urge to sell it (it's worth between $8,000-$10,000)
5.  I'm related to Daniel Boone and Queen Isabella of Spain
6.  After having my wisdom teeth removed, I learned the watermelon jello tastes exactly the same coming back up. 
7.  I have had a bulging disk in my back (L5, S1) since I was 18
8.  I used to own the Jordan Knight CD single for "Give it to You" because I think that song is hilarious
9.  I could eat Mexican food every day for the rest of my life
10. I think yard work is mens work and I detest doing it
11. My dad still calls me "pumpkin"
12. I'm going back to college this coming fall semester and my notoriously cheap dealership has offered to help pay for it.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

1) I love to shop online.

2) I have never been married or had children.

3) I have had many manufacturing jobs. During the Clinton years I know there were plenty of jobs, I had to work three of them!

4) I used to paint cars....six figure income...then back injury....poof.....no formal training....self taught....DuPont certified.

5) I have managed car dealerships including the internet sales dept, service and body shop.

6) My high school senior pictures include my horse and pickup truck.

7) My father retired as a diesel mechanic, my mother as a hair dresser.

8) My real name is the same as "The Rock"

9) I have an award for saving a police officer in trouble. It was me vs. many...with even more bystanders...cop was down....being attacked...

10) I used to be a bouncer.

11) I have no debts. Not even a credit card.

12) I am adopted....I have one sister. I still remember when my parents asked me if I wanted a "brother or a sister" I said "sister" so they adopted one! No regrets, I love my sister and her family with all my heart.

But Rob, sir, you didn't follow instructions.

You were supposed to name things about yourself in real life, that aren't generally known in cyberlife.

2, 3, 4, 5, and 11 we already knew in cyberlife, and so you'll have to come up with five new ones.

Sorry, sir.

1. When I was an infant, I was held by Loretta Lynn.
2. I have shaken hands with three presidents, two of them Ds.
3. I am a fallen-away Roman Catholic who is back in the fold.
4. I am frightened of heights and enclosed spaces.
5. I am 40, and I play music in a rock band with fellow teachers (harmonica).
6. I wanted boys when we had children, but was given two girls; they are the greatest kids I could ever hope for.
7. I have earned a black belt.
8. I have met three members of the "Band of Brothers," and I am in awe of them.
9. I love tropical fish; I have two oscars.
10. My father died when I was 11. Because of this, I live in fear of being a "bad" father.
11. I was a newspaper reporter for a small newspaper before I became a teacher. Best career move I ever made.
12. My life is amazingly boring compared to many on this board!

Much better, Rob.

I've always wanted to write about the salvage business, even though I know nothing about it.

UNLIKE common perception, I suspect there's a lot of good stuff to tell about that sort of business, like the ice business.

Really.

Much that is extraordinary in life dwells in mundane (or what one thinks mundane) things.

Oh so am I.  :-)

Thankfully, for me at least, It only really shows up when I'm tired -- although I do have lingering issues, such as great difficulty with the concepts of 'left' and 'right' (in the nonpolitical sense) and my shoelaces often come untied. I have to double-knot them.

When I am tired, 3,E,M,W all look the same to me. That stupid eye-test they always gave at school was always a hoot too.

Well, yeah, there's probably a lot of drudgery in it too, hauling all those bags around.

But undoubtedly one meets some pretty interesting people.

And one thing I've always been curious about--this however might be unique to the Sandhills of Nebraska, though--is that convenience stores sell more ice in winter, than in summer.  At least around here.

One wonders why this is.

As for everything else, well, it seems to me your twelve things are enduring accomplishments, while many of my own are random few minutes of glittering lights; things that happen in a flash, and evaporate in a flash, and of course they aren't, strictly speaking, "accomplishments," but more rather things that happened independent of my own actions.

13.  I've told this before -

My paternal grandfather owned half of the Southland Ice Company in Dallas.  He sold his half to his partner during the Depression for about $5000.00.  Today it is the 7-Eleven Southland Corporation.  

Oh well.  Ice could have been glamorous for me....but **Nuuuuu!**.

Apparently I have "grown out of it", or so I was told.  I use to see and write words completely backwards, like a mirror image.  I could not read by the time I was in 3rd grade.  Apparently I didn't always see backwards which made it impossible to learn how to read.  When I type now I find that I will insert words that are totally different than the words I am meaning to type.  I'm not even thinking of the word and when I reread what I type I find it.  It's so weird.
