That I want to be Tumblr famous! Tumblr is like blogging. I have this Tumblr that my friends don’t know about with all these weird pictures on it that I think are funny or that I think are interesting that no one really knows that I have. I’d love to share it, because I’d love to be Tumblr famous.

I’m a pretty ordinary person, so I don’t know if there’s anything people would be surprised to know. People that I know professionally may be surprised to know that I play poker online. I finished number one out of 10,000 people once. I started with 1500 chips and ended with more than three million. But it’s just pretend. I would never do it for real because I wouldn’t want to lose the money. I’m a pretty pedestrian person.

I like country music. People probably look at me and they judge me — they probably think I like rap or something like that, but I like country music. I just listen to it on the radio — it’s kind of a recent thing, so I don’t really know the artists or their names, but I like Brad Paisley. Friends at work turned me on to it.

Maybe that I come from a really big family and that I come from a Christian family, because I look so crazy. People don’t know that I was actually a missionary in high school. I went to the Dominican Republic and Haiti. I’m still a Christian, but I don’t really go to church that often because I’m gay, so they don’t really accept me that much. I kind of stopped going when I was, like, 18 — I no longer had to go because I was out of my parents’ house. I still have my same beliefs; I just don’t really do that anymore. I believe what I believe, and I go about my life. I have compassion for the community and for people. I’m a big humanitarian.

I ride a motorcycle. It’s a street bike, an R1. I go to San Diego State, and it’s hard to find parking — a motorcycle’s a lot easier. That’s the main reason I got it. I actually got it when I started school because parking was so bad that I didn’t want to deal with it. I was, like, I’ll just learn! There is a place in Chula Vista that teaches you how. They lend you the bike — just, like, a little kid’s motorcycle — but it teaches you how to do it. And once you pass the class it’s half of your DMV test. So you just have to go to the DMV and pass the written test, and then you get your license. I don’t have a car — I sold my car to get a motorcycle. It’s good and bad; it’s good in the summer, but when it’s cold I have to call a friend.

I was in the World Body Surfing Championships this summer and got third. That was in Oceanside. I actually haven’t been in a competition before but I went — and apparently I’m good! I’ve been bodysurfing for a while just for fun, then I heard about this through Junior Guards. A lot of my friends were doing it, so I was, like, Okay I’ll go. Then I went and beat a couple of my friends. I felt bad because they’ve been doing it forever and here it was my first competition and I was, like, bam!

That I'm thinking about how nice their liver might taste with some fava beans and a nice chianti?

...or that I like horsies and kitties? ;)

Magics, you 'would' be the one to appreciate my dark side (and it is HELLAdark over there).

Not THAT way, Joe!

Do you EVER think of anything else?

I found this pic of you on vacation from a few years back, BTW: http://image12.webshots.com/13/7/96/0/157279600ZAHhoW_fs.jpg

What people might be surprised to know about AG? That she's not some computer spitting out Web links. She's a girl, and she's HELLA-HOT! ;)


SDaniels April 14, 2010 @ 9:38 p.m.

Ok, that did surprise me about Joe. Damn, that's a long fall. ;)


antigeekess April 14, 2010 @ 10:05 p.m.

Yeah, got that from the Google Crystal Ball application.

It's never wrong.

That I want to start a motorcycle gang and call it the "Lonely Unicorns." We'll strike fear into every town we ride through.
