We played this game at work one day and it was fun to learn things you didn't know about people.

I'll start off:

1. I am one of 9 kids (baby girl who grew up right in the middle of the boys which is why I'm such a tomboy). 5 girls, 4 boys

2. I have lived in 8 states (CA, AZ, TX, AL, GA, NC, SC, FL). I was born in Jacksonville, NC but I have lived in GA most of my life.

3. I retired with 30 years of service from the State of GA at the young age of 50. While there I worked for their Mental Health Department (2 yrs), Child Support Enforcement Agency (10 yrs-most stressful job ever), and Department of Corrections (longest). To say the least, I have dealt with all kinds of people. This explains why I can live with Ole Gray. :D

1. As a young man I battled a terrible slice.

2. I once saw Mink Deville in a club in Milwaukee with a friend, then we drove to Washington, DC at bar time to see Charlie Feathers the next day. Another time a buddy and I left Milwaukee at bar time to drive to Kansas City for Arthur Bryant's BBQ and a Winstead's cheeseburger because I had read about the two places in a book by Calvin Trillin called American Fried. We drove back the same day. That's two things, but one principle.

3. I like steak and seafood, and have been known to eat them together, a combination I call surf and turf.

I didn't explore per se, but I've set foot there, not everyone can say that. I've never been sea sick until that ship ride from Tasmania to there. It was bad!

2. I was a former counselor of teenagers with severe emotional and behavioral issues in an inner city alternative high school. Almost all had been in and out of prison, and had terrible home environments.

3. I've lived in WA, CA, FL, TN, IL, PA, MA, traveled cross country four times, took up golf late in life, and was born in Wiesbaden, Germany.

LOL, knew that was coming.

Here are three more:

I am a huge manga (Japanese Comics) junkie. I have about ten series that I follow at the moment.

I once fired a 30-06 inside of my house. It went through my parents bed, a turn table, and into a wall.

I aspire to qualify for Mensa.

1. I have backpacked 1,500+ miles in my life. Before I am too old to backpack I would like to have backpacked 3,000 miles. The appalachian trail was a real possibility for me a couple years ago but I wasn't able to take advantage of it

2. I am an Eagle Scout. For my final project I funded and built all new playground equipment at my elementary school. I consider this to be the most significant and life changing thing that I have ever accomplished.

3. I was in two social fraternities in college. One was "professional" (quotes intentional) and the other was faith based.

I once collected empty beer cans and had over 5000 different ones

I grew up on a farm in Indiana which had 75,000 egg laying chickens

Did the chickens have large talons?

Kevin
No....not large. Egg laying hens are bred to have short talons.

Love this thread Kelly Bo it has been a great read.

1) I was born in Victoria and have lived here since 2000 since I moved here for University but I spend the majority of my teenage years in Europe, Greece and England mostly. (I have a European Passport).

2) I'm Canadian and hate hockey! Thats right, its stupid and I don't get why we like it. Therefore I have a Serious Satellite radio in my car and I get Direct tv to my house so I can watch sports channels and listen to sports radio that isn't about Hockey.

3) I'm surprisingly handsome, I hold a degree in Statistics that I used for all of two weeks before I quit to do something I enjoyed.
