Five Things You (Probably) Don’t Know About Me

I’ve been tagged. Phooey. Now I have to think up 5 things….

  1. I never went to school until college. Home schooling was the best gift my parents could ever have given me not only because I learned well that way, but also because I learned that each learner is different (two of my three younger siblings were absolutely designed to thrive in the regular school environment).
  2. When I did go to college I promised myself I wouldn’t major in a science or English, and I wouldn’t go to graduate school. I majored in English, and I went to grad school twice. Never believe anything I say.
  3. I’m a big “24” fan, though I still haven’t seen seasons 2, 3, or the first half of season 4.
  4. My parents both grew up in Japan and lived there until college, though I’m only a quarter Japanese.
  5. My dad and I designed an MS Access database that helps you solve the game “Clue.” (Available upon request, but remember: your family may hate you if you use this thing.

Now I’m supposed to tag people… Well, Steve, Jason, the people at Librarian’s Guide to Etiquette, Tom, and “Jane“.

p.s. As a bonus thing you don’t know about me: I’ve been developing a language of my own, off and on (mostly off, recently), for the last several years. Words from that language make great passwords for all the online apps I use. And to update the passwords, all I have to do is conjugate or decline the original word. :)
