Five Things

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 4:31 AM

Cranium Leakage's resident teacher and all around great guy Christopher tagged me about a week ago to do a meme where I list five things that are little known about myself. Let's have at it.

  1. I don't like mint. This isn't something that people discuss much, because mint seems to be an almost “neutral” flavor — like vanilla — for many people. Not me. I don't like it. I don't mind the chocolate mint cookies from the Girl Scouts, but other than that…
  2. I collect snowmen. I have a little wooden snowman who appears to be dancing and a small snowman candle sitting on my desk, for example.
  3. I do not like to fly. Planes make me somewhat apprehensive and my ears do not get along very well with them.
  4. I can do rhymes and meters without too much effort, but for some reason my mind has trouble working with limericks. I usually end up adding too many syllables or something like that.
  5. My favorite book growing up was Everybody's Business, a book of profiles on the top 500 companies.

Incidentally, ahem, it seems that some certain teacher did not do his homework that I assigned him. But, I've done mine. So there. ;)

Re: Five Things
I'll bite: 1. I hate confrontations. I'll plug my ears and try to leave if I'm in the presence of two folks fussing at each other. I'd rather be yelled at myself. 2. I'm a sorry photographer except when I'm trying to capture physical damage to vehicles or other objects. 3. I can't memorize much of anything word for word, but I can recall the historical content of the whole Bible. 4. I love chocolate, mint, and all kinds of sweets, but generally avoid candy because it hurts my teeth. 5. In my adult life, my weight went as low as 177 lbs during Marathon training, and balooned to roughly 260 lbs when my knees went bad.

Whoops, I'll get right on that... ...tomorrow... or maybe Thursday. :wink:

Re: Five Things
Ed: I'm the same on memorization. Christopher: I don't think "whoops" is a good enough excuse. :twisted:
