Heh. I guess we're hand fetishists, then? Marco has great hands.
Thanks! It was fun to write. I'm still a little embarrassed that it took so long, though.
Very interesting. Oh, and I can relate to no. 14.
I would try to do one of these, but I'd probably find it hard to start, and then come up with so many, that I won't be able to keep it under 20!
Yeah, it wasn't so much that I had trouble thinking of things, it was just that I didn't want to include stuff like, "I like flan" or "My back is strong." :-P
I enjoyed reading this as well. As for #19, I think they're called "inner tubes" and people tend to think of them as much worse than they are.
Inner tubes?! What an awful name. And yeah, I've always gotten the impression that most people other than me either didn't notice them or didn't care. Oh well.
Funny, I graduated college before I could drink legally as well! Young'uns unite!
P.S. Hands are my favorite part of a body to look at.
Woo! I'm happy to have that experience in common with you. Probably explains a lot, eh?
P.S. I love that icon. POOP!
I do #5 religiously, and feel the same way as you about it.
Maybe it's some kind of east-coast thing? Marco always gives me a fishy look when I perform #5, but man, I can't stop.
Nice random meme thing. :)
I tend to feel the same way about boys that you apparently feel about girls. Not so much these days now that I'm pretty happily committed.
Also relate to 13. and 14. -- though my jealousies these days are mostly internal. And when they're not, I want them to be. Sigh. Also don't have any tattoos, though have often been in situations where I could have got one. Also love the lyrics to Dissolved Girl - and actually put that in the first mix tape I sent seismic
. Such goodness. Mmm.

You beat me to this comment.
I've read a handful of these that are worthless & dull; yours should/could be a template for the random, interesting things we ought to consider sharing.
I have un-pierced lobes, too. Few of us left, it seems. And as for the "...because damn, I was hot" comment, I officially roll my eyes at you. While I've not had a chance to see you topless, I've seen general photos of the all of you, and you're hot RIGHT NOW. TOMORROW. 10 YEARS FROM NOW. No. Really. ;)
Aw, thank you. Glad to know it entertained you.
You know, even my boyfriend has his ears pierced. There really aren't many of us.
And finally, yes'm. *looks down, scuffs feet* And thank you again.
I like this meme. I will do it as soon as I've finished the "100 things I like" one which has taken my time vs friendlist quota into the hours rather than minutes. And I don't think you could be dull if you tried.
A hundred things you like? Wow. Man, if I tried to do that, everything on it would probably be FOOD. :-P
Ooooooooooooooooh. I had profs who blew shit up too! And one week's OChem lab saw the students blowing things up, though not intentionally. Oops. I worked in the OChem prep room then too. The whole experiment was a mess. Lots of clean up--which I had to do--and one trip to the ER from someone who was fortunate to be wearing eye protection. He would've lost his right eye.
My first lab partner in G-Chem could never remember to put boiling chips in anything. After the first three weeks, I forbade her to run any more experiments and did them all myself.
I worked in the O-Chem prep room too! (Insert obligatory hive mind comment here.) Once, I was foolish enough to go in to do prep in a skirt. I was wearing tights, though, and I thought I'd be quick enough for it not to matter. I forgot I had to use concentrated sulfuric acid for the prep. I spilled some without realizing it, and it dribbled out off the edge of the fume hood. My leg started to itch. I looked down to find a three-inch hole melted in my tights. Stuck my leg under the tap and prayed nobody would come along and see me. Luckily, I caught it fast enough that I wasn't scarred. Never had to take anyone to the ER, though, yikes. What did he do?

I share your heterosexual lament. I am such a waste of gay.
No, seriously. I'm in awe of the interesting word usements you structure.
Very interesting, and I don't mean that in the euphemistic way. I think #20 is called brave and self-aware. I smiled when you talked about cucumbers and explosive-happy chem profs (though I was turned off from chemistry by a boring prof, so sad that the people can have that much of an effect on you, rather than the subject matter). I like how your list exudes your self awareness and and self acceptance, very sexy traits.
It is a shame, although in the end I found I was happiest doing chemical physics, a major that my university didn't offer. I also ended up wishing I'd taken more computer courses, as I felt that my lack of programming experience hurt me a lot once I started grad school. Actually, I think the whole system of teaching the hard sciences (especially chem) could use a major overhaul, but that's another story. Briefly, I think the ordering should be Gen Chem => Physical => Organic. Yes, organic should be last, because otherwise all the electron-pushing crap makes no physical sense and the whole subject gets reduced to a lot of boring rote memorization. And I think anyone planning to attend grad school in chemistry and physics should be required to take comp sci courses, perhaps one or two of the basics for comp sci majors and then a couple of tailor-made comp chem classes.
Whoa, tangent. I think you should do the meme too! I'd like to see what you come up with.
