    Interesting facts about you...

    Is there something interesting about you that other people might not know? It can be important, or completely useless information, doesn't matter. I'll start off...

    I haven't owned or worn a pair of jeans for probably 10 years.

    I broke my femur falling off my bike when I was 7 and was hospitalized for a month. (I had a bone cyst, which didn't decide to heal until 4 surgeries and 7 years after the break.)

    I almost choked on a Lego wheel when I was younger. It got stuck in my throat below my windpipe, so I could breathe, but I couldn't swallow. My mom drove me to the hospital, and when they tried to get it out, it fell all the way down to my stomach. I loved Legos, maybe a little too much.

    ODD FACTS ABOUT SHOES
    Grecian shoes were peculiar in reaching to the middle of the legs. The present fashion of shoes was introduced into England in 1633. In the ninth and tenth centuries the greatest princes of Europe wore wooden shoes. Slippers were in use before Shakespeare's time, and were originally made "rights" and "lefts." Shoes among the Jews were made of leather, linen, rush or wood; soldiers' shoes were sometimes made of brass or iron. In the reign of William Rufus of England, in the eleventh century, a great beau, "Robert, the Horned," used shoes with sharp points, stuffed with tow, and twisted like rams' horns.

    The Romans made use of two kinds of shoes--the solea, or sandal, which covered the sole of the foot, and was worn at home and in company, and the calceus, which covered the whole foot and was always worn with the toga when a person went abroad. In the reign of Richard II., shoes were of such absurd length as to require to be supported by being tied to the knees with chains, sometimes of gold and silver. In 1463 the English parliament took the matter in hand and passed an act forbidding shoes with spikes more than two inches in length being worn and manufactured.

    Kinda related to that...

    I like to keep my room as cold as I can. I think it's a lot more comfortable for sleeping. While everyone else in the house has space heaters in their rooms, I have my window open most of the day.

    I have had 30 plus surgeries performed on me and survived them all.

    Also, I have around 500,000 spent on my medical so far. Only 5.5 million more to go to be the six million dollar man.

    I see things that you can't until later. And there is only one person who can see them with me and he's far away.

    I love station wagons and lament the fact that in North America we get a lot fewer cool station wagons compared to Europe.
