I love pizza. Really good pizza is up there with sex.

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

I have never asked a woman out.

Bellatrix's avatar

I have face blindness. If I meet you, then see you again a few days later and look at you blankly, it’s because my brain didn’t code your face properly.

@Adirondackwannabe – what’s your favourite topping?

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought, really? Do they usually ask you out?

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

@Bellatrix if a woman likes you, and you don’t ask them out, they find a perfectly logical and innocent reason why you should hang out together.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Bellatrix I love supremes. Everything exploding in my mouth. That is so cool.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I love Pizza too. :D
Actually, I love everything with cheese.

Fact: I love cheese with all my heart and soul.

I don’t like to get wet. I realized this when I noticed that I always hesitate before I get into a shower.

Mama_Cakes's avatar

I can’t straighten my right arm all of the way. The Radius and the Ulna bone are crossed at the elbow. Not sure why. Perhaps, I was born that way. The doctor did question my Dad (physical abuse?).

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I absolutely love fried foods. They’re so unhealthy, but oh so tasty and omnomnom!

My left big toenail is extra thick and layery due to a severe toe stubbing a couple of years ago.

YARNLADY's avatar

Chocolate holds no special place in my life. I enjoy it on the rare occasions I have some – two or three times a year, but it’s nothing special to me.

bookish1's avatar

I will choose an A+ tropical fruit over the finest ice cream or chocolate in the world, any day. I’d miss chocolate sometimes, but I am completely ice cream indifferent and could go the rest of my life without any.

downtide's avatar

I have been horse-crazy ever since I was about eight years old, and from the age of ten I taught myself to ride on a borrowed pony. I had my first actual riding lesson when I was about thirty, and they put me straight into the Advanced class and let me ride their headstrong and difficult Arabian mare.

@rooeytoo At least the dingo didn’t kill your baby.~

cazzie's avatar

I was born with 6 toes on each foot.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Whoa, seriously?

cazzie's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate you mean me? Yes. I was born with an extra little toe on each foot. It is a family thing. Some girls get extra toes and boys get extra fingers. My son had an extra little finger on one hand. It is called polydactyly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polydactyly

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I think that’s cool, actually! I once had a cat with polydactyly. I used to tell people he had opposable thumbs. :D Did you keep the toes and your son’s extra finger in place? Or did you have them removed? I’ve often wondered about things like that.

cazzie's avatar

One of my toes was just hanging by a bit of skin when I was born so they clipped it off and put on a band-aid, but the other one, on my right foot, had a bone in it, so they had to wait until I was about 2 and a half to remove it. I remember the stitches I had. They removed my son’s extra finger here in Norway when he was a month old. It wasn’t attached by anything other than soft tissue and wasn’t growing at the same rate and they worried about the vascular system, worried that it may turn gangrenous and infected. They had NO clue what to do with it. They snipped it off with a pair of fingernail scissors. (I was NOT allowed in the room and did not witness the procedure. My sister was physically holding me down on a bench while I listened to my son cry in an examination room.) It is fine now… he has a little bump on that hand, much like my toes. He shows some signs of the area being sensitive. If you can imagine the skin in between your fingers or toes being on the outside of your hand…. I remember this from my own toes being removed, but I got used to it. Shoes are still a bitch to fit, though.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Oh wow! I’m sorry for any lingering problems with sensitivity and such, but that is so fascinating.

rooeytoo's avatar

@chyna – it’s interesting actually, she was born and grew up in an aboriginal camp so she adores little black babies. They would crawl all over her and she would like them til they were giggling uncontrollably. But little white babies puzzle her, I am very vigilant because I don’t think she knows what they are, I’m sure they smell very different to her. It does worry me she might think something like “hmmmm, hairless cat!”

AshLeigh's avatar

@Nullo but they were worried about it becoming infected, so they had to remove it.

Nullo's avatar

@AshLeigh I dunno, I think I smell a double-standard.

cazzie's avatar

@Nullo yeah, because letting gangrene set in is such a better idea. /sarcasm
@AshLeigh yes, it wasn’t growing and it was beginning to discolour. There was obviously problems with the vascular supply.

AshLeigh's avatar

Fact: I just lost the game.
I hatechu, Mr_Paradox!

@AshLeigh darnit now you made me lose too.

AshLeigh's avatar

Mr_Paradox made me lose. :)

Yes, yes I did.
Something about me…... hmmmmmm. I know, when it comes to cars, I’m clueless.

Sunny2's avatar

My eyes are changing color. I don’t know what color they are or are going to be, but they sure aren’t brown any more. They are getting lighter, not darker.

Nullo's avatar

@cazzie And circumcision is about that important to a proper Jew.

cazzie's avatar

Here is another random fact about me. I don’t care about religious ‘laws’. I live a secular life in a secular country.

cazzie's avatar

@rooeytoo nonesense.

rooeytoo's avatar

Why am I not surprised that is your response. It is an opinion and is as valid as any other opinion.

cazzie's avatar

@rooeytoo I didn’t mean the opinion was nonsense. I meant you posting it here was. Is that a random fact about you?

cazzie's avatar

Here is another random fact about me: I know that living in a secular society means that ALL religious freedoms are defended, despite what one religion despises over another or what atheists may think. I know that when people sacrified their lives to defend the country, they did not do it so that only Christians could observe their beliefs, but so that the right to not believe in a god is also recognised as a valid and defendable position. It is no longer allowed for the Roman Church to come into small villages and chop people’s heads off who won’t convert. (which is what they used to do around these parts.) Thank the secular society, that defends everyones rights, that allowed that person to have that blog.
And YES, today is the 1 year anniversary of the Oslo killings. Thank you so much for your sensitive and caring outpouring of support. /readsarcasm

rooeytoo's avatar

you do sarcasm so well!

OpryLeigh's avatar

@Sunny2 Mine too. They used to be very dark brown, almost black. Now they are still dark brown, just not as dark as they were, but there is now a black ring around each one, like most of the eye changed colour but that bit didn’t. I hope my eyes don’t get any lighter whilst still leaving a black ring, that would be creepy!

Sunny2's avatar

@Leanne1986 There’s nothing to be done about it except wear colored contacts if we don’t like how they turn out.. I don’t plan to do that. Let me know how yours turn out, although, how will we know when the changing will stop?

mattbrowne's avatar

I enjoy watching the ‘Gilmore Girls’

AshLeigh's avatar

Fact: Though I am religious, there is nothing I hate more than religious pushers.
I wonder if they know that they sound like pompous assholes…

OpryLeigh's avatar

@Sunny2 very true. I don’t think I’ll be wearing coloured contacts anytime soon!

Sunny2's avatar

@Leanne1986 Some things have to be left to fate, I could always dye my hair to go with the new eye color, whatever it is. but I probably won’t

Mr_Paradox's avatar

My eyes are blue but are technicly hazel because they change shades from electric blue to gray.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I hate shopping.

@Adirondackwannabe I was just about to write “I hate shopping” when I noticed your post lol I like having nice things, but I hate the whole shopping “experience,” especially when it comes to clothes.

28lorelei's avatar

Random, annoying noises hurt my ears. Also, my glasses prescription has grown weaker over the past few years. Weird, right?

Paradox25's avatar

I’m a pretty good electrician, mechanic and welder, but I can’t sweat pipe, even if my life depended upon it.

downtide's avatar

@Paradox25 I’m neither an electrician, mechanic nor welder, so what does “sweat pipe” mean?

Paradox25's avatar

Soldering copper piping. Maybe I don’t do it enough to be proficient at it, but others have picked the technique up quicker than I have.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I thought it was soldering? Just asking.

Paradox25's avatar

I edited my post. For some reason I mess up on that word, like intersting.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Paradox25 No biggie.I have trouble with it too.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I have an intense hatred inside me for a specific, evil person, and it’s difficult to not do something stupid.

@WillWorkForChocolate Don’t do anything lady. I’ll flash you my boxers if you behave.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’ll do it too. Oh, front or back? I forgot to ask.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Back. I like butts. :D

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Well now, I’m thinking boxers or briefs?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Boxer briefs. :D

Why not just the nude bum? I figure if you are going to flash, do it properly.

I simply can not stand Nikki Minaj.

rooeytoo's avatar

Who is Nikki Minaj?

Mr_Paradox's avatar

If you don’t know, don’t worry about it. You will regret knowing once you know.

rooeytoo's avatar

When you said that of course you made me curious so I googled. This came up. I think she seems pretty okay. I will have to listen to her music though because I must admit I am not a fan of gratuitous profanity in song or speech.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

THAT’S the point.

rooeytoo's avatar

@Mr_Paradox – what’s the point? That she uses gratuitous profanity? If that were a deterrent for me and kept me from looking beneath to see what else is there, I wouldn’t be on fluther, or actually, go out of the house these days!

Mr_Paradox's avatar

It just disgusts me that people like her are sometimes seen as role models.

AshLeigh's avatar

I think Nikki Minaj is a black Lady Gaga… No racism intended.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

We need to invent a universal delete button.

Mariah's avatar

@augustlan, you probably have your overzealous immune system to thank for that. Happens to me too.

My closet is color coded.

AshLeigh's avatar

My closet is organized by the length of the sleeves. O.o

Mr_Paradox's avatar

My closet is organized from T-shirts, to long sleeves, to coats. Each group is organized from “street clothes” to formal. So my closet starts with my sarcastic T-shirts and ends with my black trench coat.

Bellatrix's avatar

I have taken a ‘rainbow’ approach to my closet organisation. It has stuff of all colours all over the place. It is cramped and has way too much stuff in there. It is only roughly organised by item type. I call it ‘pot luck closet organisation’.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Mr_Paradox you hang all of your T-Shirts? I put them in the dresser. XD They take up two drawers, too. XD

rooeytoo's avatar

@AshLeigh – I was thinking the same thing, I am lucky if they make it out of the wash basket to the dresser drawer, I can’t imagine hanging up a t shirt!

Mr_Paradox's avatar

I have OCD so….................... yeah.

rooeytoo's avatar

@Mr_Paradox – I could use a little bit of that to get the stuff out of the wash basket!

AshLeigh's avatar

I have OCD about handwriting, and even/odd numbers. But not about T-shirts… XD
FACT: I’m lucky if I can fit all of my T-shirts into my dresser drawers. I have a lot of T-shirts. :D

Mr_Paradox's avatar

OCD about even/odd numbers? Wha?

AshLeigh's avatar

I like equals. I meant to say that I hate odd numbers. Haha. To the point of being obsessed about it.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 13

Mariah's avatar

I also dislike odd numbers, and furthermore, even numbers that are not divisible by 4. Just one of my eccentricities.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

My favorite number is 42

AshLeigh's avatar

@Mr_Paradox…. I’ll kill.

rooeytoo's avatar

Now I don’t mean this in an offensive way at all, I have more than enough of my own quirks which I call “madnesses.” Anyhow I love hearing about others’ quirks, then I feel less weird! (I like to count to 4 on one hand, like patting my fingers against my leg one at a time, starting with my index finger and continuing until I get around to my index finger. This is especially helpful in the dentist chair! I also like to count backwards from 100 by 2, 3, and onward. Again helpful in stressful situations!)

Fact:
The last time I wore some cool boots was when I was flying to asia a couple years ago. Had a couple of drinks before our flight and I biffed it in the boarding tunnel and sprained my ankle so badly. 13 hours with a soggy ice pack on my ankle and limping through the airport in my socks.

I was 6’ 1” in 1967, but now I’m 5’ 11½”.

@Yetanotheruser Well..better than being 5’3 and shrinking to 5’0. like I probably will. Shrinkage sucks. I’m going to be of those little old ladies whose chin is flush with the bottom of the steering wheel. Get outta my way…bah! lol
