O.K. I love this; you've got to love someone who says this.

Great thread!! I just love learning more about everyone. It took me the longest time to come up with my five, but here goes:

1. I’m a former ballerina…I was accepted as an apprentice in a nationally known ballet company, but a badly broken foot ended my dance career before I started.

2. After that, I worked as a professional actor for a few years until I ran out of money and had to get a “real†job.

3. I’m a charm school graduate. My mother, who was raised on a farm, used to hate that she had to go to business dinners with my Dad and never felt comfortable with how to act. We never had much money growing up, but she managed to scrape together enough to send her daughters to charm school because she didn’t want us to ever be in the same situation. I thought it was the lamest thing at the time…but I actually use the stuff I learned in my current job.

4. I secretly would love to get a tattoo on my hip or somewhere subtle. But I hate needles and DH hates tattoos, so it’ll never happen.

5. I’m a junk food junkie. I love chocolate and sweets, empty carbs, and greasy food. But since starting Weight Watchers a year and a half ago, I try to keep my junk food consumption to a minimum.

1) I have "prehensile" toes: I can pick things up with them and use them to manipulate objects, like use a fork or a pencil. (I don't have fine motor coordination, so I eat messily and write like a three-year-old.) When I drop something on the floor, I use my feet to pick it up again.

2) I am a walking, talking version of the IMDb (Internet Movie Database). I can remember even the most obscure (modern) actor or director and can connect them to the films or television shows they were in. I remember names and faces, and can catch obscure references to movies and shows, even if I haven't actually seen the show. When I watch movies with my friends, they're always going "Who is that guy? What have I seen them in?" and without fail, I can tell them. I have no clue how I can by this ability, because ...

... 3) My family didn't own a television until I was ten, and we didn't get cable TV until I was in high school. I didn't have television the entire time I was in university and only really started watching TV shows "religiously" since I started living with J (so, for the past four years). I was (and remain) an avid reader, however.

4) I was a gymnast until puberty landscaped my body in such a way as to make gymnastics unfeasible. I also did dressage, which is like gymnastics on the back of a horse. I was pretty good at gymnastics but didn't like competing, even though I did well -- I wanted everybody to like me and, of course, the other gymnasts hated me when I did better than they did. I wasn't as good at dressage, but I enjoyed it more.

5) I started working at the age of fourteen; my first job was serving coffee, donuts and ice cream in a donut shop. After that, I worked at an ice cream stand on the beach, as a waitress at a seafood restaurant and at a Chinese buffet, as a filing clerk for a cosmetic surgeon, as a cashier at a dollar store, as a bartender/short order cook at a golf club, at a Dairy Queen, as a dispatcher for a heating/air conditioning company, as a receptionist for a lab that studied foodborne zoonoses, as a filing clerk for Farm Credit Canada, as a procurement officer for a company that manufactured uniforms, and, most recently, as the parking administrator for a large office building. I'm only 28 years old. I have never been fired -- I just have lousy luck. I'm also a professional writer, but that's not a full-time job and has yet to start paying the bills.

Well I'm still pretty new around here but this will help everyone get to know me better...

1) I am studying to take the LSAT's in September and hopefully go on to law school after I graduate next year.

2) My boyfriend and I have been together for over 2 years now and we live together.

3) I really hate vegetables and therefore you can only imagine how unhealthy I eat.

4) I absolutely hate where I live right now but you do what you can when money is tight.

5) I am a night person and can not wake up in the morning for anything -- making me late for work everyday. Luckily I have a wonderful boss who understands the ups and downs of college life!!

That's all I can really think of right now... I sound like a miserable person huh?!? I'm not though, I swear!!
