4. I can’t stand to have things read out loud to me. I don’t know why, but my auditory processing is just horrible. When they do those learning style tests to see if you are an auditory, visual, or kinesthetic learner, most people are a healthy balance of all three, but I am completely and utterly visual. I can’t even handle hearing and remembering a phone number long enough to dial. My husband is a musician too. He tries to see the positive side of this situation – he can practice all he wants and I never get annoyed, because it never sounds repetitious to me!
5. Related to number 4, I am really good at organizing complex things visually. I constantly see the patterns in objects. Right now I create the schedules each week for everyone at my work, which involves 14 students and 16 staff and a hundred or so appointments. It is like a giant friggin’ Rubik’s cube, but I am good at it. It has also made me good at weaving, and hopefully good at knitting, although it is too early to tell.
6. And now for something completely random. When I was 13 I used to have the Tim the Enchanter speech memorized and would give a performance for anyone that would let me. Yes, I was a Monty Python geek. For death awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth.
7. And finally, the last random thing about me is that I have no online friends. That’s right, I have no one to tag this onto. I am a disgrace to my generation. I was such a nerdy outcast in junior high and now all those feelings of inadequacy are returning. The people from Ravelry are the only ones I really know who really know their way around the internet. It’s not that I don’t have any “real-world” friends, its just that I can’t think of any which have entered the blogosphere. I don’t know if that makes my friends lame for not being online, or if that makes me lame for not having any technically-savvy friends?
So, I’ll tag Nicole from the knitting group, since she’s on my friend list on Ravelry and Huan Hua didn’t tag her for this particular blog list…
