25 Things About Myself

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I’m late to this “25 Things About Myself” deal.  But I was writing yesterday, and I couldn’t think of anything to write about.  So I thought I’d get rid of this old cliché.  So, without further ado:

  1. I love clowns!  I love their makeup, costumes (especially their big shoes), and their antics.
  2. I suffer from Asperger’s Syndrome.  People had always thought there was something wrong with me, but I didn’t exactly know what until about five years ago.
  3. I also suffer from cerebral palsy.  I have a speech impediment, and I go spastic sometimes.  My feet are also pigeon-toed.
  4. I’ve been to 16 states and one foreign country (Canada).
  5. I didn’t fly on a airplane until 2007, when I was 45 years old.  I flew from Evansville, Indiana, to Detroit.
  6. I live in or around Celina for most of the first 22 1/2 years of my life, from 1962 to 1985.  I then moved to the Evansville area, and lived there from 1985 to 2014.  Then I moved back to Celina and have lived there ever since.
  7. Both my parents are alive, though they’ve been divorced from each other since 1972.  After the divorce my father remarried.  The two of them have been together for 45 years.  My Mom also remarried soon after the divorce.  She’d remarried four times and been widowed three.
  8. The first dead human being I saw was my cousin Steve, who died in train wreck in 1978, when he was in his early 20s.  I saw his body displayed at the funeral home.  It scared me.
  9. I’m the middle of three boys.
  10. I have no sisters.
  11. My older brother has been married twice and divorced twice.  My younger brother married in 1991 and has been happily married ever since.
  12. My favorite TV show currently in production is The Big Bang Theory.  
  13. Sheldon Cooper is my favorite TV character.
  14. My all-time favorite shoe is An Age of Kings, a BBC adaptation of most of Shakespeare’s English history plays made in the early 1960s.
  15. Douglas Adams is one of my favorite authors.
  16. 42 is my favorite number.
  17. The last two facts are related.
  18. I also suffer from depression.
  19. Curly over Shemp.
  20. Joe Besser over Shemp.
  21. Curly Joe over Shemp.
  22. I am a gamer.  I play Strat-O-Matic sports game, particularly Strat-O-Matic Baseball.
  23. John over Paul.
  24. Brief over boxers.
  25. One of these days I’ll write another list of these.  Your have been warned.
