Ten Things I've Done That You Probably Haven't

(taken from all over the place on livejournal)

(could mostly be subtitled "stupid things I've done," but not entirely)

  1. Driven 12 hours (round trip) for a chicken sandwich. Damn, that was a good sandwich.

  2. Cheated on a woman, and then, the next day, gone to Lilith Fair ("a celebration of women") with that woman.

  3. Acted as hangman at a mock-execution outside a University Dean's office, for entirely non-political reasons.

  4. Lay in the snow, drunk, and watched a total lunar eclipse.

  5. Gotten a score of 212,225 on Tetris (for the original Nintendo, "A" game, starting on level 7).

  6. Written a text-based adventure game.

  7. Helped someone make a Halloween costume based on a character from one of my own horror short stories, which she wore all night. (And when I started peaking on mescaline, wow, it really freaked me out)

  8. Dated girl A, who was dating guy B, who was dating girl C, while I was also dating girl C, and everyone knew about every other relationship. (So it formed, like, a rectangle. This lasted for, oh, about a week as a stable configuration.)

  9. Moved 3,000 miles across the country on a whim, to a town I'd never even visited, with no job lined up (and had one of the best years of my life there).

  10. Gotten drunk and sat in a hot tub and promptly passed out, only avoiding death by drowning thanks to the quick action of a couple of SF writers.

Huh. I thought this would be difficult, but now I've thought of two or three more, which I won't post because I don't want to psychologically scar my poor mother. I also left out all the obvious writing-related sorts of things, since so many writers read this journal.
