Five (Or So) Things You Didn't Know About Me

All the cool kids are doing it (notably one of my favorite bloggers, Alex Barnett so if he's doing it, why not):

  1. During my tenure at boarding school up north, I was an alpine ski racer (downhill and super-g being my preferred events) and did reasonably well.  Unfortunately my career was cut short for reasons I won't go into here.  It was one of the few sports I had any "natural" talent at.
  2. I do not have a college degree, though I did attend a few semesters of college (I was a chemistry major).  After that fiasco I was formally trained in classic VB/ASP, and am otherwise self-trained (on the job or otherwise) in my .Net endeavors.  I know a ton of programmers who went this route.
  3. I was a Macintosh user for the first decade of my computer using years, and did not even power up a Windows machine outside of school until I was 21.
  4. I have 5 piercings, but no tatoos (with no plans to get any...ever).
  5. I had hair down to my shoulders until I was 20.

Extra credit:

  • I was classically trained in upright bass for 2 years when I was a teenager.  I no longer play, but am an avid percussionist.
  • I am deathly afraid of needles.

So I guess I have to tag 5 people: So, ScottW (actually, all of the Telligenti for curiosity's sake), Bob, Phil, Keyvan, and're it.
