  • i really need to get back on that theremin project ;). Other hobbies have so sidetracked that.

  • I pretty much get along with my mom, as well. I mean, she’s crazy, but crazy-fun, so it’s all good.

    I had a CAT Scan and EEG when I was 16 — does that count? They were trying to find a reason for my siezures.

    And I’ve been to at least one of the Smithsonian Museums with you and Em. 🙂

  • It does count and I had the same reasons for having them. I had nocturnal siezures as a kid.

    Yay for Smithsonians!

  • In high school I organized a “sit in” at a dance after a football game because of Mony Mony. We always shouted “Hey, get laid, get f**cked!” during the song and at one dance those in authority turned it off when we did our chant. We all sat on the floor for the remainder of the dance and I was scolded for being a “rabble rouser.” This probably would have coincided with the time Mat sang Mony Mony in grade school. : )

  • I’ve had a cat scan, an eeg, two spinal taps AND an MRI. I was in a COMA. bet none of y’all can say that!

    (i do, however, long to go to more museums.)

  • i’m having my skull readjusted.
