Given that I've been tagged by at least three people in the last week or so (Mark most recently), I guess it's my turn to pile on to the latest meme. So here are five things you probably didn't know about me unless you happen to be my family.
- I almost went to Space Camp back in 1988 or so. I'm now jealous that Ryan got to go. I ended up trading my space camp trip for a hard disk and hard disk controller for my Amiga 500.
- Funny pet names. For whatever reason, I've always had pets with amusing names. Our first cat was named "kitty" (as noted earlier). We also had a few guinea pigs: Freddy and Boo Boo. I currently have two cats: Barnes and Noble.
- When deciding where to go for college, I was torn between Aviation and Computer Science. So instead of picking a school that had an excellent program in one or the other, I picked one that had mediocre programs in both. But I never changed my mind and graduated with a CS degree. Luckily that eventually provided enough income that I can afford to fly for fun.
- The longest I've dated anyone is just over five years. That was quite some time ago, too.
- I am lactose intolerant.
