Faces Come Out of the Rain, When You're Strange
1. What's the strangest thing you've ridden in or on?
Definitely a camel!!! I was 20 years old on my first trip to Israel and we were travelling across the desert to have dinner in a Bedoin tent. It sounds very exotic and adventurous, but really it was rather touristy!!!
2. What's the strangest thing in your home?
Um........ Probably me!
3. What's the strangest nickname anyone has ever given you? What's the explanation behind it?
"Ninja Girl". One day in high school gym class, a very strange boy with "issues" decided to attack me with a hockey stick to prove that he was a "real man" or something like that. Bear in mind that this kid was probably 5'8" and weighed about 200 pounds and I was not even 5' and weighed in at about 102 pounds (ah! those were the days!). Yeah. That's really going to show how tough you are, dude! When he came at me with his stick, I automatically raised my hockey stick to block him. I had to defend myself my holding my stick up over my head with both hands and preventing him from splitting my head open. He actually looked a lot like the Star Wars Kid of internet video fame! Of course, the other jerks in the class just watched! It must have been quite a show to them -- the crazy fat kid attacking the little nerd girl! After it was all over, a few of them starting calling me Ninja Girl because I'd actually managed to successfully protect myself! Don't worry - it didn't last long - they went back to calling me "brainiac" and "geek" pretty fast!
4. Where's the strangest place you've ever slept?
Hmmmm.... on a beach in Eilat, Israel, or in a scientific research facility in the Cloud Forest in Costa Rica or on my friend Cigana's bathroom floor (using a hand towel for a sheet, no less!).
5. Who's your strangest family member?
Ummmmm..... again, me?????
