Re: have you taken a bus?

The first time I ever took a bus was back in the 80s when I was twelve and running away from home. Before that, I'd led a weirdly insular life, so even though I knew the general protocol, I was flustered by the details (exact change, putting the money in the thingee instead of giving it to the drive...

Re: when did you last make a wish?

Yesterday morning, before going in for semi-emergency laser surgery on my eye to drill a hole through the iris. Today I can still see, and the pressure in my eye has dropped, so hooray, my wish came true!

Re: how do you organize wires?

Depends. Current-carrying wire: by type/function, then gauge. Decorative wire: by color, then gauge. Other wire: by location. Meaning, piano wire goes in the piano bench. Picture-hanging wire goes in the picture-hanging hardware can, wherever that may be at any given moment. And so on. I can't tell ...

Re: have you had lobster?

Yes, I've eaten lobster all my life. When I was a little kid, I only got the little claws and occasionally one of the big claws. For years I thought the best thing about lobster was sucking the meat out of the little claws and biting them to make the pincer on the end wiggle. Then one day, as an adu...

Re: Are you related to any famous people?

My adoptive mom is the direct descendant of Capt. Thomas Wiggin, the first governor of Dover Plantation, which later became part of what we now know as New Hampshire, does that count? The family tree reads like a who's who of colonial politics. We even have the uniform that one of her ancestors wore...

Re: Quicktakes

My mom-type and her dog visit every weekend for an overnight. Just before they leave, my mom always rinses out the dog's water bowl and then carefully positions it upside down on the counter, on the edge of the sink, where it then drips little drops of dog-tainted water all over the place. Why can't...

Re: What is your favorite number?

My favorite number is 5, but how come no one ever asks about my least favorite number?

My least favorite number is 2 because it's a killer of primes by way eliminating every even number, and yet even though it's an even number itself, it still gets to be a prime number. What a goady asshole.

I can just imagine the bees filling out their course evaluations. "Professor B is cool and I loved the field trips but he's a bit set in his ways--kept going after the farthest balls instead of the TOTALLY OBVIOUS REALLY CLOSE balls. Duh!"

I love hearing about how people were raised, what kinds of things shaped them in life, etc., so to me, a person's race, and how she sees that as having shaped her (or not), is a fascinating thing.
