10 Things I've Done That You Probably Haven't

Jumping on the meme bandwagon:

10. Been evicted - with much screaming and yelling on the landlady's part - from an apartment where I'd lived for exactly four hours.
9. Joined IADAS. (Yes, I'm still excited.)
8. Been hit on by Strom Thurmond.
7. Had shards of glass embedded in my face and hands during a terrorist attack in Israel.
6. Created an internet phenomenon.
5. Gave a one-hour lecture so kick-ass that I got offered a full-time job on the strength of it.
4. Built a 700-pound concrete and plexiglass interactive sculpture (and nearly electrocuted myself doing the wiring).
3. Won a Westinghouse Science Award (now the Intel Science Talent Search).
2. Read a book a day for just over six months.
1. Fell in love with the most generous, kind, loving, thoughtful, tender human being I have ever met. (And there's only one of him. So there.)

Ooh! I want the story for number 10!

As for number 1, if you're willing to cede perspective differences, I have done that as well. :)

The only explanation I can come up with is that our landlady was a scary, psycho bitch. This is when Rachel and I were in Greece; we moved in in the late afternoon, and we had just gone to bed when she shows up pounding on our door and screaming at us in Greek. The only way we figured out that she wanted us out was when she started shouting "Police!" which seemed to be the only English she knew. It was kind of an adventure.

Wow, crazy!

Also, what's the story for number 8, Strom Thurmond?

It was at Al D'Amato's birthday party; I suspect he was drunk. :)

This story is much better told in person, so you should get her to tell it to you!

I was going to object that #6 wasn't valid, since you know someone on your blog whose done something rather similar... But then I saw #1 and forgave you :)

You hardly count as "someone else", oh my other half. :)

I've sort of done #6, though I will admit, DEFINITELY not to that degree...

You are way too cool. Even Strom Thurmon thinks so! :-P

You'll have to tell me the #7 story sometime. That's really scary, dude. Terrorists aren't allowed to attack you. (Someone should send a memo...)
