Sooo...the mighty gumshoe board feels a bit slow today. *Bob the Builder voice* Can we fix it? Yes we can!

Got a skeleton pounding on your closet? A secret in the attic? A monkey (no, not precious Bobo...and not the raging back hair you try to pass off as a Bonobo backpack either) on your back?

Let it all out, boo.

K, I'll start with a few (true) examples.

When I was 16, I robbed the house belonging to to heir of a pickle dynasty.

I used to steal Volkswagen signs to be more like one of the Beastie Boys.

I have bought more than one kind of deodorant in the same day, on the advice of a friend.

I salivate a little whenever I walk by a hot dog vendor.

I totally car-megeddoned a pigeon last month.

Sometimes, I find Bob Sagat funny.

I'm Canadian and I really don't care about hockey.

Plus, I covet my neighbor's ox every day.

Just found this thread, and thought it was awesome! :D

Here goes:

I have an obsession with sniffing nearly everything at least once to see what it smells like (yes that includes weird things).

My parents don't know what I sneak out of the house to do every Friday...I hope.

I have a huge crush on someone who plays this game.

I had wine way before I ever had coffee.

Sometimes I take meds to prevent illnesses, not cure them.

I once purposely gave myself a papercut just to see what it would feel like.

Riza, I must congratulate you on bringing this thread up.

What can I say?

I really dislike beer. I like wine, cocktails, love sparkling wine and love drinking from fancy delicate glasses. But when I go to the Oktoberfest (been 3 years in a row), I dress in a traditional Bavarian Dirndl and happily drink beer from 1 liter mugs.

During college my friends and I built a small pool in our bathroom. Ca. 1.5x1.5 m and 1 m high. Then we did the only logical thing and through an awesome party. School officials did not approve, but since we broke no rules (we made sure of that in advance) they couldn't do anything.

I hate unpacking stuff. I have a couple of boxes of stuff that I have moved between houses twice without ever fully unpacking.

Oh, and regarding the meat discussion, I love both meat and fish and will eat most any animal (assuming the quality of the meat is good). My list of tasted food includes, but is not limited to goose (that I've even cooked), pheasant, hare, seal, whale, swordfish, auk eggs, and shark. Some were delicious, others not so much, but I do make an effort to not eat endangered species.

I own over 60 pairs of shoes.

I always, always travel with too much luggage.

I love old movies, Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, etc. and I have an undying love for musicals.

The closest I've ever come to crying over a movie was when Mufasa died.

And one of the most embarrasing fact of them all: Sadly I actually can sing along to most of the spice girls songs. *blushes*

Well then.....

I wrote a "love making" scene after some inspiration from a friend. Then I composed a piece of music for it.

I consider eating junk food and watching cartoons a hobby

I enjoy watching Looney Toons

I can recite certain scenes from Spongebob SquarePants episodes word for word.

I bought a journal so I can write short stories in it.

I've failed open book tests quite a few times.

Hmmm I can think of a few :)

I've eaten horse treats before. (Yes it was a dare)

I started drinking with my friends at the age of 12, though I drank so much when I was younger that I rarely drink at all now.

I get a tad jealous when anyone gets engaged before me :)

I own more bags than clothes.

I love watching cartoons.

I have watched Friends so many times I can recite all the lines as I am watching them.

Talia I love the idea of a pool in a college dorm sounds like a lot of fun :D

I'm not as naive as I let people think. ;)

I've eaten things with the sole purpose of freaking people out, including pickles, calamari, mealworms, crickets, waxworms, cat food, and venison.

I couldn't ride a bike until I was in 3rd grade, and that only because my class went on a Bike Hike, and I wanted to go, too. I was very proud when I only fell down 23 times. :)

Like Riza, I really like someone who plays this game, but I don't like the same person she does. ;)

I own more purses than shoes.

I'm not really a big fan of TV... I'd rather read books.

The first (and only) movie I did NOT cry at was A Walk to Remember... because I had finished the book an hour before I saw the movie and had absolutely no tears left.

I love calamari. Does that count? :)

It's probably time I got this off my chest.

I talk to my suspects during my cases.

It ranges all the way from 'Nooo, you *can't* say you were with the sodding Librarian as well!' to 'Thank you, that was the perfect answer, you wonderful man, have a cigar'. With stuff in between.

*wonders if that rings any bells with anyone else round here or whether it's just her...*

I have quite an intense Octopus phobia.

I am 27, Nickelodeon is my favorite channel and I miss “Are You Afraid of the Dark”!

I have watched the movie “The Burbs” over 300 times and can recite every line from it.

I rip the cotton part of Q-Tips off to dig in my ears. (They get very itchy!)

I am obsessed with anything dealing with the paranormal.

I HATE romantic gestures and PDA grosses me out.

Oh, and when I was younger, I sprayed almost a whole can of Pledge into my brothers eyes.

*twirls a can of Pledge and puts it back in her holster*

Intrigued - PDA? Googling it didn't seem to bring up anything that would fit that statement! :)

You are correct SS. I think it's nasty to watch others make-out, yet I love watching those VH1 dating shows. Hmmm....
