@Lucy in the Sky announced quietly 
Well, since everyone is having another go, I might as well jump in:

1. I am running out of room for my books. I recently got rid of a few, but my bookshelves will be full soon. I really need to do something about that…

So’m I. ahdn_paul_01

2. My favorite TV show is Sherlock

My best friend (who by the way shares a name with a Beatles song character) got me hooked on that show. I’ve been busy being obsessed with the Beatles (especially George), though, so I haven’t really thought about it in a while. 

<trim> 

6. I have an old classical guitar that I found in my grandparents’ basement. I use it from time to time, but the neck is a little too wide for my hands 

Yeah, I used to play a classical. Then I got into barre chords, and I just couldn’t use it anymore, so I got a steel-string acoustic, which was better. 

Upon further reflection:

9. I can come across as pedantic. Sorry about that; I don’t do it intentionally.

Nahhh… not at all! 

Might have 9 more after a bit… I have to collect some random things.

ISN’T IT THOUGH?!?!?!!!!!!!!! 

It’s especially torture if you think about it enough to derail a thread. So let’s get back on topic… 

 9 More Random Facts About Me 

  1. Hi. 
  2. I love the Beatles to pieces. 
  3. Especially George. 
  4. And Paul. 
  5. And John, 
  6. and Ringo… 
  7. although I can’t stand their solo careers… 
  8. except George’s… 
  9. and wait, this isn’t very random, is it?… 

Just kidding! 

  1. I’m homeschooled. 
  2. I used to dislike olives, but now I don’t mind them… 
  3. …I used to be a very picky eater generally, but I’m not really anymore. 
  4. When I was little, I wanted to be an artist. That was before I discovered writing and music. 
  5. I share a birthday with Thomas Jefferson (not bad, although wouldn’t it be fun to share a birthday with a Beatle?) 
  6. My family owns six instruments (three guitars, two violins, and a piano), only four of which are played regularly (two of the guitars). 
  7. Like George and John, I prefer cats over dogs. 
  8. I have (HUGE) a thing for red hair… 
  9. …and British accents. Especially Liverpudlian/Scouse. 
  10. I just ran out of numbers. 

So yeah, there you have nine random facts about me. This thread is by nature very “I Me Mine I Me Mine I Me Mine “, isn’t it?…

Hmm, I don’t think I’ve had a stab at this yet? Anyhow:

1. I play computer games with my kids. I’m one of those dinosaur gamer types.

2. I think I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched and enjoyed 2001: A Space Odyssey.

3. I have ‘a thing’ for a lady in Hong Kong.

4. I don’t like flying but I do it because I have to.

5. Spiders are worse than flying.

6. I have quite the collection of different varieties of tea.

7. My kids number three, all great.

8. Coincidentally, my divorce hearing is in three weeks exactly as I type this.

9. It makes me sad how many unpleasant people there are in the world, but I’m glad to have met a few nice ones.

10. I can’t count!

OK, I’ve done my nine facts before but here I go again:

  1. As a child I was a bit of a loner but didn’t feel lonely.
  2. As an old man I am a loner again but do feel lonely.
  3. As a teenager and young adult I read lots of SCI-FI and horror.
  4. I watch a lot of SCI-FI and horror movies and series these days; dramatic films (like good poetry) make me weep like an old woman.
  5. Greek myths are more familiar to me than the Bible.
  6. I’m usually broke but I feel happy since I have time and can compose, write and paint.
  7. I don’t like leaving my house when I don’t have to. I even exercise at home.
  8. I like Dadaism and Surrealism; in a way you find them both in The Beatles.
  9. I confess I like Sting as much as I like The Beatles (now shoot me)

Ahhaha, a fellow northsider?  I stand by my view.  And I’m not alone.

1.  I own four guitars; 2 Yamahas, 2 Fenders.  One electric and one acoustic each.

2.  My lone amplifier is a Crate and I wouldn’t trade it.

3.  My wife and I have two kids; one boy, one girl.  They’re both doing great in school.

4.  I wear glasses.  So does everyone in our house.

5.  New research from the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow says there are just 4 basic emotions:

    Happy, Sad, Afraid and Angry.  Or Ringo, George, Paul and John.

Think you missed the point, @Bongo. One fact repeated nine times does not make nine facts, and saying you’re a Beatles fan on a Beatles forum you’ve been on for months is hardly random! I’m yet to find anyone here who isn’t a Beatles fan. Don’t derail!

 

I think it’s you that missed the point………I blame the humour by-pass operation you had when you were still an adolescent.

 

I’ve just spotted how old and long this thread is……..Obviously Bongo didn’t derail it………

 

It’s also possible that in the interim you got your sense of humour back.

Or, maybe, definitely maybe, that reply was always intended to be taken more humorously than seriously… Just very dry humour!

None of the facts in this thread are random since

proceeding, made, or occurring without definite aim, reason, or pattern 

And since the facts are chosen with an aim, reason and sometimes pattern, I believe that this topic is “The Incredibly Impossible To Stay On Topic” thread.

Ok, here are 9 REAL facts about myself.

1) the obvious, I am a HUGE Beatles fan.

2) I love ice Hockey, I watch my hometown Team (Ottawa Senators), and my Countries team (Team Canada).

3) I still play hockey and am quite fast for my age (52) and still play against 20-30 years olds and make them work for it.

4) I have a Team Canada Hockey Tattoo on my shoulder, and have pondered for years about a Beatles Tat on the other shoulder, but never have.  (They say once you get 1 tat, your bound to get more).

5) Led Zeppelin is my next fav band followed by Scorpions, Pink Floyd and most other hard rock (classic rock) bands and some old Heavy Metal.

6) Married, 1 child already out of the nest.

7) I like long walks & Bicycle rides…… (no I am not currently or never have been on any dating sites)

8) My wife can’t believe how much of a Beatles nut I am, and does not share the same enthusiasm, but tolerates them for my sake. 

9) I was born in 1963 and believe my 3 teen sisters (at the time), got me hooked on the Beatles apple01

9a) BEATLES music gives me Eargasms! heart
