Twenty Things About Me: Tagged

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 10, 2014, 12:20 AM
Because people don't make love to Angels...
They merely use them to feel more complete.


Tag, you're it! That's the way it goes, I suppose - I was marked for discourse by the lovely and talented Miss WeirdAndLovely Hopefully I can actually come up with 20 mildly interesting tid-bits about myself.

1. I split my chin open when I was a child trying, fruitlessly, to reach a large Valentine's Day card pinned to the wall (way above my then-short head). I used a step-stool to launch a relentless attack from below - I jumped and jumped and jumped until my feet slipped out from underneath me and I came crashing down on the ridge-textured top of the step stool. I split my chin up and chipped the bone and bled like you wouldn't believe. I still remember the numbness of shock (not actually hurting) and putting my hands to my chin for only a second and pulling away hands drenched in blood. I have almost no memory of the time afterward, from emergency room visit to having the stitches removed.

2. My oldest brother threw a cat at my face when we were younger - now, it's not as bad as it sounds because we were just being dumb kids and playing on a bed, throwing things at each other. It started with pillows and things and then it naturally escalated to whatever happened to be more effective and at-hand - the family cat. The poor thing flew through the air and caught the only thing it could - my face - with a single claw. It ripped my left cheek open in a long crescent but this injury hurt, a lot. I remember putting my face on the bed, on a pillow, and pulling it away to see a scarlet stain. I, again, remember essentially nothing of the time afterward from stitches (if I even had any) to their removal. The scar is rather faint now.

3. Sometimes we kid about how I got revenged for point #2 by pushing a dead tree on my brother's head - it was a complete and utter accident in all seriousness. We were playing in a forest and I saw a dead tree on the crest of a slight rise and I did what any kid would do... I pushed it. My brother just so happened to be standing at the foot of the rise in prime position to get nailed in the head by a big, dead log.

4. Keeping in the vein of horrible things from my childhood, myself and one or two of my siblings were swarmed and attacked by a ridiculous amount of bees when we unwittingly disturbed their nest that was, apparently, tucked away under an overhang near a larger body of water (a large pond or a lake, I think - I remember lots of water, a rocky overhang and a wood fence). We climbed over & through the fence to stand on the overhang over the water... jumping up and down excitedly on top of an army of bees. Despite being swarmed, I bear bees no resentment and never developed a fear or phobia.

5. We spent some time in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu, as a family back when my dad was still in the military. Aside from doing relatively benign things like nearly stepping on eels and stepping on sea urchins (spines sharp enough to pierce thick rubber flippers, ouch) I nearly had a too-close brush with death in the form of a particularly convincing Stone Fish. For the uninitiated, they are fish that hang out in the Pacific area that have a dastardly tendency to look like rocks and, oh yeah, they are among the most venomous fish on the planet. I was trudging about in the water, about thigh-to-waist deep, when I noticed that the rock I was about to step on had eyes and was looking at me. I pulled my foot back and used my hands to push water at it and that did the trick - the rock started and zipped away. Had I actually taken that step I would have almost certainly died. Fucking fishes.

6. I grew up in the military and was conceived overseas in Germany (both of my parents started in the Army, only my dad stayed in after my parents got together) and there is this bizarre tendency to not allow (at least, at the time) servicemen & women to not get too comfortable and we were shifted to another base every 2-3 years and, as such, my formative years were quite tumultuous and I never quite got the hang of making friends and being more... normal, typical. I only had two or three good friends in my whole life all the way until high school and I never got to keep any of them longer than our timed-stays on the bases.

7. The name of the first girl I ever kissed or touched was Krystal Phillips (hopefully I spelled that right, it's been ages) and she lived across the street from us when we were in Fort Huachuca (another military base). She had a sister, Melissa, whom was a bit older, a bit taller and lankier... she was a dork, but so wonderfully so. Krystal was a bit more formidable and I loved it - I miss her. I'd search for her if I could trust my memory about the spelling of her name and if I could remember if she had a hyphenate name or not.

8. I did not have a girlfriend until I was in my early twenties - I'd say it wasn't for a lack of trying if that were even a consideration. I was so thoroughly unwanted and so uninteresting in all of my time at school that I never actively attracted the attention of a girl (the exception being Krystal, but she was a year older than me and we didn't go to school together - perhaps this explains my appreciation for older women :lmao: ).

9. Oh yeah, I adore older women - but that is not to ever say I have anything against younger women either... or even the middle ground! I've just come to notice that I appreciate and consider women over a much wider range than most other men ever seem to.

10. I like, love and appreciate all manner of things but I shy away from ever stating preferences because I don't think they tend to apply to me - particularly when it comes to what attracts me or interests me.

11. My personality has clear threads that go all the way back into my formative years in my childhood - I had a definite tendency to imagine things when I played and when I discovered books, particularly fantasy books, I become even more imaginative and creative. Movies built upon this and, at some point, day-dreaming and night-dreaming turned into writing when I could no longer just think about things and had absolutely no one to share the things with. It's pretty much the same now.

12. I would say that I do not post my writing for the sake of sharing it if it were not so damnably contradictory - let us instead say that I do not expect a pointed or particular interest to be garnered by anything I post and that I could and would continue to post even if no one ever commented or favorited my work ever again. It's more to do with catharsis and a willingness allow others to witness these thoughts and feelings and experiences than a wish to have these experiences, thoughts and feelings witnessed.

13. I appreciate complexity and have a deep-seeded desire to understand things on as many levels as possible. I think that duality and multiplicity is inhere to most everything and that most everything human lacks the tendency towards being purely something. Almost no one is just an introvert just as almost no one is an extrovert - and though you could accurately describe yourself and your tendencies one way or the other to do so would be to embrace a certain sort of glibness that I've always found irritating. The male and female sides inherent to any person and our desires for both solitude and solidarity and are important, beautiful and inexorable truths of our experience and existence. My desire to see both sides, to experience everything and to accept the opposites - to know that the exceptions are as important, necessary and worth-noting as the tendencies - this is part of what makes me such a wonderful human being.

14. I simply adore cheese - brie is my favorite and I also think it's a fine name for a lady.

15. On the matter of names I've always loved making up names, especially those for women in a fantasy setting - particularly the setting in which some poor woman actually falls in love with me and we have children - I have lots of ideas for names for girls ;P

16. My names for men & boys are lamentable and range from the self-same to the non-existent - I've generally only ever used three in my fantasy writing and as character names in various games. I'm not sure why I am so unimaginative when it comes to males - oh wait, yes I do.

17. I have a ridiculous bias towards females and female company - not that I have anything against men, my two best friends (and longest held friends) are men - HONORABLE MENTION: Tsurakashi & deviantjm - but come on, girls are just so perfect. Even when they're not, they so are.

18.  My tastes are eclectic, from food to music, and I simply abhor even thinking of trying to categorically state what I like or like more - it's not something I need or want to do for the simple fact that I do not think in these terms. I could not list the genres of my favorite music or movies beyond the most vague and, beyond that, I would just give you a mystified look. When I experience something it is a case-by-case basis for me and simply on the merit of what that one experience means to me. I love certain artists, sure, but I most definitely do not love every piece by a particular artist or even most work by a particular artist. Yet another way in which I rail against preference.

19. I can almost categorically state that I detest country music and most any form of rougher or heavier music (terms like Screamo and Death Metal come to mind) but, again, I've also found merit in at least one tune from time-to-time that even if I find it difficult to enjoy I know that I can. I'm not sure why I am so at-odds with such forms of music because I definitely enjoy country accents and I can get behind the intensity and emotion of heavier music at times... there is just something else about the nature of the things that bothers me. Like goat cheese and stone fish.

20. I want to write a book someday, but I have no idea how to go about doing it in so many ways - this ranges from my lack of a solid fix on the story & characters (the finer points) to my lack of comprehension on the finer points of writing (I think an editor would try to kill me at some point, just to make life simpler). But not a day goes by when I do not think, dream or wonder about this story that has been in my head and in my heart for the last 18 years of my life. That's a long time to have an inner universe begging to be expressed. I would hate to die having never shared it with the world.

21. I have a tendency to talk too fucking much sometimes - some think that it's because I say so little most of the time, clearly I must have a big mouth when I do talk - I think it has most to do with my desire to explain things pointedly and more completely than most do. If I'm going to do something, why not do it properly?

22. I hate sleeping - I mean it feels great but I have this sinking suspicion that that is only because it is completely and utterly necessary for living things to not go insane and die. If I could I would sleep as little as possible if at all, just to do more things in my days and in my life.

23. I think the hair on a woman's forearms is some of the cutest, loveliest, most adorable and alluring hair and things ever. Compulsive shavers weird me out not because I dislike hairlessness, (unless it's a cat or animal, that is bizarre) because I don't, smooth is awesome, but because I find it so odd for people to fight so completely and vainly (and for the sake of societal vanity) against something so natural and normal as though it were not natural or normal.

24. I'm up too late, goodnight.



There is beauty in the world

Do you remember love
The heartbreak of love?
Nothing now but music of the night
I am forever in love

A lover with a fault
A lover with a fault

Allow it and you will have it
Allow it and love will be

Do you remember the time
When you were satisfied?
Do you remember the time
When you were laughing?

The world is wonderful
if you believe in it
Turn your face towards life
and constant happiness in our midst

What happened to those days?
What happened to those nights?
Do you remember the time
When you were sorrowful?

Do you remember the time
Forever crying tears?
Was it me or you at fault?

Feeling used and lost
Why the fighting and
crying of tears?

There is beauty in the world
If you seek it out
There is joyous wonder in the world
Let's seek it out
