- I always wear comfortable shoes, thus neatly fulfilling a couple of stereotypes at once.
- I didn't get a driver's license until I was 29 years old.
- I'm only 5 foot 1 (and a half). I know, I blog like I'm much taller.
- I used to be a very serious karate student when I was in my early twenties. I trained for some seven years or so, and got as far as second-degree brown belt. I never quite got it together to go for my black belt (I was getting kind of burned out), and then my sensei left town.
- The first poem I remember writing was a long rhyming thing about the Apollo space program that I wrote when I was about nine years old. The only lines I remember for sure: "Apollo 11 / Went straight up to heaven." Oh, the humanity!
- I don't have a significant other or a religion. I think poetry is both of those. I'm not altogether certain that's healthy, but there you have it. I kind of like it this way, actually.
- My first celebrity crush, when I was like six years old, was on Catwoman (from the campy original Batman series with the NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA BATMAN! theme song). Mrrrrowwwrrrr!
- I can't watch TV shows about lost or injured or abused animals, even if they get rescued and are OK in the end (like all those Katrina animal-rescue stories). I think about the poor scared animals and I just can't stand it. I know, I'm way too much of a softie.

PWADJ tagged me, so I'm supposed to reveal eight things about myself. I'm not a particularly mysterious person, so this probably won't be too exciting....
