^ My best friend in high school did too. She graduated first (toppermost in grades) in our class of 320 people. I was second. People couldn't believe we both mixed up right and left.

You're definitely not the only two. In my case, I learned that it's a common issue for people who were forced to be right-handed as children.

1. I hate clothes shopping (only books and music amuse me, I can spend hours in those kind of shops a-hard-days-night-paul-7)

2. My fingernails are rarely painted.

3. I sleep in the guest bedroom of the house not my actual bedroom.

4. I can not eat whole tomatoes (absolutely disgusting- just the thought of them makes me want to throw up)

5. I can not eat more than 2 squares of dark chocolate as I feel sick after 3+.

6. I carry a book with me nearly everywhere I go.

7. I have glasses but I only wear them if writing on a white-board is in red marker (I'm -0.75 in my right eye for all my fellow messed up eye people)

8. I had a pet hedgehog for a couple of weeks, his name was Poncho.

9. I can put my leg behind my head.

1. I keep the nails of my left hand clipped to the bone, but on my right hand rather long -- for fingerpicking the guitar (I hate feeling any nail at all in my left fingers when they are pressing down on the strings).

2. My favorite color is orange -- the perfect orange of an orange peel.

3. I like playing the guiro with a 50-centavo piece from Mexico (it's the perfect size and weight for scraping the wooden ridges).

4. I used to dislike leaning way forward on a bicycle -- like am I supposed to be some kind of Olympic racer or something? I just want to have a pleasant ride down to the park or store for crying out loud...!  So I reversed my handlebars and made them stick up vertically, and I could ride around like a schoolmarm from the 19th century...

5.  Three summers ago, a potato fell out of a hole in my sack and landed squarely on my big toe -- as I was walking uphill in sandals!  My toenail hurt for weeks, and got black and blue; I thought the nail would have to come off altogether.  A year later, my toe had finally healed -- but then, while in the store, a bottle of wine fell off my shopping cart and landed right on that same big toe (hurt like hell even though I was wearing tennis shoes at the time)!  I limped home and spent another couple of weeks cursing the heavens.

6.  I note that this is fun to blather on about little details of my life to largely strangers on the Net...

7.  When I was in my teen years, I used to make fun of other boys who would make an exaggerated motion with their head in order to swing their long hair away from their eyes -- me and my friends who shared my amusement called it "gung ho".

8.  I like the irreverently insouciant sense of humor of comedians like Milton Berle, Dick Cavett, and Conan O'Brien (just to randomly name three that came to mind...).

9.  I am now typing out my ninth random fact about me, and I will presently finish when I hit the period.

I liked doing this last time so I shall do it again:

1. The language I would most like to learn is Arabic.

2. I have not broken a single bone (yet).

3. If I could dance everywhere without getting weird looks I would (I dance up to my house after school, when no one is around of course....)

4. I don't find Ryan Gosling attractive (jaws of men/women across the world have just dropped) I have only found 2 other people who don't find him handsome.

5. I wear a size 4 - 4 1/2 shoe.

6. I am currently trying to read all of the books on this list I've read 20 so far.

7. If I could have my way in school, I would only study languages (unfortunately maths is compulsory in Ireland and my school only offers German & French), in an alternate universe I would be studying English, Irish, French, German, Russian, Japanese and either Spanish or Italian for my final exams (damn).

8. I dislike immensely people who call Irish 'a dead language' or 'useless' just because you can't speak it doesn't mean it's useless! I have gone on many a rant about how we should protect and encourage the use of the language (that goes for Scottish Gaelic and Manx as well).

8. (Part 2) I can understand and talk to people who speak Scottish Gaelic and Manx but it's extremely hard to keep a straight face (especially with Manx) because it just sounds so ridiculous!

9. I rarely proof-read my work (especially online) 'cause I can't be 'bovvered', it shows A LOT (particularly on this website, where I edit each post I make about 2 or 3 times just for grammar and spelling mistakes.

Did you notice that on that list of 100 recommendations, there's only 99? I'll go through it later to see how many I've read. Most, I think.

36 would be included in 33.

Can you spot your typo in 9?

You've opened parenthesis before "particularly" and not closed them.

A very good 9 random facts, ASJ. Most interesting. (I'd never seen that book list, thanks for the lead.)

Even most of my earlier posts underwent editing cause of grammatical/spelling errors. But I've noticed forumpudlians turn a blind eye to it, i.e. they understand what we mean. a-hard-days-night-george-9

You should have said that you'd made a made a mistake on purpose to be ironic, and done a George a-hard-days-night-george-10. But we'd never hold typos against anyone, @AppleScruffJunior. We all make enough to go around. I just thought it ironic it was in that line about needing to correct mistakes! Only reason I had to lol at it.

A lot of my earlier posts have the majority of original stuff taken out of it, as I got older I get annoyed/embarrassed at what "past-me" writes. Unless it is on a first/second page I've probably edited it :P

Nah I wouldn't be able to cover it up- I make far too many mistakes for it to be "a nudge nudge, wink, wink' joke. Might as well own up to me crimes, governor.

Very true. In the beginning it took me hours to write one single post. I would check every single thing, but I probably still made some mistakes. Now, I try not to make any mistakes, but I don't stare at my screen for hours anymore. If I do see a major mistake, I'll edit my post, but if it just a missing comma, I wouldn't care.

Yeah same. I feel so ridiculous when I've made a stupid mistake. Sometimes I make them, especially when I'm tired. Then I'm just not focused and I make stupid mistakes. Sometimes I'm not entirely sure about the grammar either. It's annoying, because sometimes you just know you've done something wrong in your reply, but you can't figure out what it is!
