Utterly random things

It looks like #sfrivethead has moved to In unrelated news, it looks like the pcb etchant I got sucks ass.

Anyhow. Still alive, still not reading LJ much, and I got the burning desire to utter this twenty random things about myself in no particular order:

1. I was born in Chicago, and have lived in Boston, Austin, Denton TX, Ann Arbor MI, and Silly Valley, CA (Mountain View and Sunnyvale.)

2. I can wiggle my ears.

3. My hair is currently reddish, and hasn't yet faded to pink. Much.

4. My little brother's teaching law at USC.

5. I skipped fifth grade.

6. I first started programming about 25 years ago. (Age 7 or 8.)

7. I don't like fresh peaches, asparagus, liver, uni, papaya, or ketchup.

8. I've worn glasses since I was 2.

9. I have perfect pitch (but can't sight-read music.)

10. Onions make me real gassy.

11. I have Asperger's and Attention Def... ooh, is that a bunny?

12. I like bunnies.

13. Occasionally I get cravings for strawberry rhubarb pie.

14. I'm quite shy in person.

15. #14 is because I hate, hate, hate overstepping my boundaries - and can't tell when I am.

16. I've never actually eaten rabbit, though.

17. Goat, on the other hand, is really quite tasty. Y'all should go to the Mango Cafe in Palo Alto. I loooooove food.

18. Purple is my favorite color.

19. Quero var a Barcelona (y a Madrid ver El Bosco en el Prado.)

20. I don't often dream of people I know.
