Subject: OTHER FACTS (about you)Part II
From: Sorcha
Date: 27 Jan 01 - 12:46 AM

I do a mean curry, several types. I am not a vegetarian. I am exhausted. I have a sick daughter. I have a husband on graveyard shift. I have too many "animal leavings" in my house (hair, poop, etc.) I have lost too many good friends to stupidity. I don't learn enough new tunes. I quit dusting months ago. I spend too much time on the computer. I almost envy Susan. If my house burned, and we all got out OK, I could really get rid of some STUFF...........!!

Hey, I stopped dusting YEARS ago. It's really great for Halloween, and for Christmas I just throw some glitter on the cobwebs and call it tinsel. I have been planning to get rid of some stuff, but haven't had the time to sort through it, and then don't have the fortitude to actually get rid of it when I do. I am here now instead of asleep.

Don't worry, your daughter will get better and things will get different, and if you work it out carefully, you might be able to get enough sleep at least a couple nights a week. Hang in there.

"My name is John. I'm a manager . . ."

Actually, it turns out that I am really good at it. I sort of fell into being the general manager of a company that builds and sells musical instruments and employs 40 people. I am involved in all the hiring and firing, and do all the personnel reviews. I don't lose my temper at work. I treat everyone respect, even when I have to reprimand them in some way. I have discovered a skill for consensus building and for finding the win/win solution. I fostered a workplace that stresses personal responsibility and now two of the four departments don't have managers or supervisors anymore -- they are completely self-managed groups and it is working great (it was my idea to try it out). I seem to have the liking and trust of the owners of the company and of everyone who works there. NOT what I expected to be doing with my life.

Well, OK, this something I would put on my resume, but it's not something I would normally talk about on Mudcat.

I'm just now reading this...not enough time.

I can sing harmony with most songs the first time I hear them - words and everything. Nervousness interferes with this, though.

I can hold one eye in place and move the other one all over. I have a photo (described as "scary" by another 'Catter) of me doing this, taken by David, bbc's son.

Alison, I thought everyone could stick their toes in their mouths!

I used to be able to pick up coins with my feet, but I haven't tried it recently.

I've learned most of what I know about computer stuff because someone once wouldn't show me how to do something. I love solving problems. If you want me to figure something out or learn, tell me I can't do it.

Shortly before my gramma passed away in 1933 she told me the good mushrooms were the ones that curved down and were pink in the cup on the underside. She was the only one I ever picked mushrooms with, so i've never picked mushrooms since and I'd be a little nervous taking on that responsibility. I'd be glad to carry the little pail to put them in, if some one else wanted to handle the picking.

Easy as she goes, Sorcha.

I spent 2 years in the Army, rising to the rank of 4-star General before returning to civilian life to train for the Olympics. I took the bronze medal in the shot put at the 1976 games, and moved up to capture the gold at the 1980 games. In 1982, I was elected to the House of Representatives, serving in that capacity for 12 years. Upon moving to Canada, I served as Prime Minister until retiring to write full time. In 1996, I received the Nobel Peace Prize, and in 1997 the National Book Award for my presidential biography, "Millard Fillmore: A Life?" In 1998 I entered the state fair and received the Pullet Surprise. For the last three years I have held the world light-heavyweight boxing title, have posed for Playfiddler magazine's centerfold, and I like to reheat dinners in my spare time.

I used to have very keen visual perceptions, I once managed to spot, amid the bubbling current and rescue a friends floating contact lens, that she had lost about 50 ft upstream from where I was crouched at the river. Everyone thought I was joking when I said I found it.

On the other hand, I have never found a four leaf clover in my life, while my daughter, when she was small, could find in our little patch of lawn, at least one a week.

I have been mentioned on local radio (Viking FM and Trax FM) many times, I have been mentioned on Children's BBC and CITV and I've been mentioned on Radio 1. I havealso been seen for about 5 seconds on the Redcar version of Look North. I've called for a dance at Redcarfolk festival and Keith Donelly dragged me up on stage and forced me to sing at Crewe and Nantwich folk festival 1996. I also have a microphone blow up when I was snging in Russia. I didn't realise I was that lousy!

Going on to my journalistic credit, I have had a book review printed in the Doncaster Free Press when I was 6, and I had a poem printed in the school newsletter when I was in Year 8 (12-13 year olds). My biggest journalistic achievement was having an article published in the NATIONAL Young Archaeologist Club magazine in June last year!!

I'm also a Blue Peter badge winner.

That good enough for you?

Oh yeah, and I got up to Grade 3 cello before packing it in.

CamiSu,

My syneasthesia is the dead common Colour Hearing thing.

Mainly, I hear musical keys as:

C maj/Chrome yellow D maj/Bright leafy green E maj/Silver Grey F maj/Orange, slightly rusty. G maj/Royal Blue A maj/Mahogany Brown B maj/Lilac

C minor/Inky blue/black D minor/British racing green (the dark one) E minor/Light marble grey F minor/Red, Crimson, slightly bloody. G minor/Dark Blue, hints of purple A minor/Dark brown, rosewood, victorian furniture. B minor/Purple, very rich and dark.

also a slack handful of sharp/flat keys give off impressions of colour. The more music I do, the stronger it gets. When I was touring, doing stupid hours (9 hours singing per day for 2 months at a time) I started to see shapes, movement etc. Very strange.

It tends to go away again if I stop playing for a bit. Also, if I have a cold, it tends not to be so noticeable.

Fascinating stuff, eh? Jon

Nudging the ole memory here, Mets...my sisters, all three, wear contacts and, when we lived close by, I was always the Mistress of Finding Lost Lenses, but never in a running stream like that! Hats off to you!

I won a beautiful baby contest and as a prize had a free portrait taken each year up through 5 yrs old. My mom and dad used to sing that song to me, "You must've been a beuatiful baby, 'cause now you're a beautiful doll..."

When I was in 6th grade (11/12) I was concert mistress of our school's orchestra. My teacher had the first chair of second violins and me work up a duet of Silent Night which we played on local tv. It was the only tv station in the whole of Western Colorado at the time.

When I was concert mistress in junior high, my last year, 9th grade (14/15) I won a scholarship to summer music camp. I had fun but hated the music they made us play. We were the free recording grunts for the avant garde faculty at BYU. I still have the LP on which I played in the orchestra...a very stupid, boring, minimalist piece called "Feathers."

Oh god, kat, that reminds me-----I went to the Kansas University music camp grades 6,7,& 8. I was never Concertmistress there (or in my HS orchestra either) but I had a blast and LOVED the music we played. Was my first "away from home" experience.

All participants were required to be in a Choir. The good singers got to be in Chamber Choir, and the rest of us (plus them) in Concert Choir. I'll bet they are still sorry they required it of me!! But, it was the only opportunity I will ever get in this life to sing "The Battle Hymn of the Republic", (Mormon Tabernacle arrangement!) Plus, Brahms Lullabies..... I have LP's to prove it. What a time.......

Sorcha, when I went on that, to me, HUGE stage at BYU, all by myself, to audition to snob faculty who were in darkness before me, I totally froze up, couldn't remember any of the positions, except first and third. It really burst my bubble; the first time I ever got put in second violins! I did make my way up in high school from there, though, so I guess I didn't totally lose my confidence. I did have fun with the kids I met. Fell in love with an "older man" (I was 13, he was 15) from San Francisco! LOL

I no longer have actual animal leavings on the rug, just stains (we finally got our current dog housebroken).

When I get nervous, my hands shake and I forget things (such as, the tune I was about to play).

I had an abnormally stable upbringing and freakishly sane, supportive parents. I think I needed them, though, because I ended up being an abnormal child.

When I was little, I looked like one of those troll dolls with colored hair. Well, I had limp brown hair but the face was the same. People always think that must have been cute, but would you REALLY want your child to look like one of those?

I once had a cat that could answer the telephone. When she died, my parents were afraid to bury her because they thought our new dog would dig her up, so my dad cremated her with gasoline in the barbecue. We still have her bones, in a little paper coffin in the den. My brother thinks it's creepy but I like knowing where she is (if we buried her and then moved, she'd be in someone else's backyard, and that bothers me).

hey!...I had almost forgotten, in 5th grade, I was on a local version of the "Quiz Kids" radio program...mostly, I think, because I was the only one who even raised their hand during tryouts when they asked what US state had the most bordering states. It is Tennesee, and I named 'em ALL.

Also, I once answered a TV quiz program question before it was asked!..The topic was "Famous Battles" and contestants could choose 3 levels of question..more $$$ if you answered 2/1 or 3/1.....so I said (to the TV) "I'll take 2/1 and the answer is Thermopylae." Sure enough, a contestant chose that option, and they asked him.."What Greek battle was fought against the Persians in which.....blah, blah, blah..." .....My wife and kids just stared and asked "how'd you know that?"...my greatest triumph...unfortunately..

that's the point! I didn't 'know' it...it was sheer inductive logic to imagine what battle would have enough 'hard to remember' about it, and still be famous enough to not ne totally obscure...it 'could' very well have been "Bouganville" or "Trafalgar"...but it just didn't 'feel' like it would be.

Used to be a party game based on that way humans can do stuff like that...."If you were a color, what color would you be?"...."black"..."ok, Lucretia Borgia"..(my 2nd greatest triumph)
