15 FACTOIDs

  1. I regularly add spontaneously-completed tasks to my to-do list just for the satisfaction of crossing them off.
  2. Sure, some steaks are better than others, but I’ve never met one that I couldn’t get along with.
  3. Due to my rugged lifestyle, I usually have at least one black toenail on the go at any given time.
  4. I’ve acquired approximately 400 bookmarks in my life but still have to use a business card or Canadian Tire receipt to mark my place.
  5. I’ve been meaning to try a chicken burger rather than beef for the last 20 years but just haven’t found the right moment.
  6. I usually feel slightly intimidated when driving onto the back lot of a lumber yard but I try hard not to let it show.
  7. I estimate that the last time I killed a spider was sometime in the 90s, and even that one was an accident.
  8. With all due respect to Red Green, I believe that duct tape is useful for only one thing: taping ducts.
  9. No matter how many times I look it up, I can’t seem to retain the difference between volts and amps. 
  10. I've never eaten cereal for supper.
  11. I'm rarely able to eat a carrot without choking on bits of veggie shrapnel.
  12. I don’t care what anyone says, socks & sandals and a belt holster for the cellphone just plain old work.
  13. Even at 45, I’m still thrilled by the raw beauty of distorted rock guitar.
  14. I’d rather ingest poison than any of the “goops” that populate the inside of a typical fridge door.
  15. I can’t foresee a day when I’ll want to drive anything other than a station wagon.
  16. I don’t understand the various types of eclipse. OK, I’m Googling it so this post is no longer relevant ... now.
