Currently Listening To:

In the spirit of sharing myself with the world, I give you 23 Facts You Didn’t Know About Me:

1. The knuckles on my thumbs make my thumbs look different. It’s kinda hard to explain, so click on the picture to see what I’m talking about.

2. Almost all of my birthday cakes are homemade and extremely chocolaty. One time, my mom did buy me a red velvet cake from Wal-Mart to do something different, but I didn’t like it very much.

3. I got an Optimal Optimus for my 11th birthday. It’s the pride and joy of my Beast Wars Transformers collection!!

4. I got nothing for my 9th birthday because we were so poor back then. Fun times…

5. I saw my first pair of real boobs in the back of my friend Eriopolis’ car. They were my friend Ben’s ex’s, and they were spectacular!

6. I think that Nickelodeon TV in the 90s is waaaay better than anything on today!!! Doug, Salute Your Shorts, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, The Secret World of Alex Mack, classic Rugrats, Rocko’s Modern Life, I could go on forever! C’mon, Nick; make a Classic Nick station! You could call it ClassNick or something like that.

7. My first CD was Killer Cuts from the Super NES game Killer Instinct. My old friend Chris gave it to me because he didn’t want it. It’s pretty Rare to find these days (pun intended, hehe) so I feel glad that I still have it.

8. My favorite live album (it’s also my favorite double-album) is Tripping The Live Fantastic by Paul McCartney. Oddly enough, it was released when my brother Jon was born. Coincidence?

9. I used to wear Superman pajamas when I was a little kid. My grandma even sewed on velcro straps for my cape too!

10. The first anime that I watched obsessively was Pokemon. The very first anime that I watched, although I didn’t know what it was at the time, was My Neighbor Totoro. I was like, “WTF, mate?”

11. I can’t “mentally get into” porn. I dunno, maybe there’s something wrong with me or maybe I like the real thing. Weird…

12. I can’t play drums. At all.

13. One Saturday night in college when I was playing my guitar, some drunk people came to my door and thought I was playing Guitar Hero. I failed to impress the ladies with my tapping frenzy (I should have stuck with chords, lol!), but the guys loved it and I got a couple handshakes from it.

14. I got my first pair of glasses on my 14th birthday. Subsequently, I got my second pair on my 19th birthday. What is it with birthdays and glasses?

15. My favorite color is blue. It was probably because my dad drove a blue Chevy Sprint when I was little.

16. Back in the early 90s, I used to live in Fowlerville Michigan at Garden Lane for a couple of years before we moved back to Ohio. I miss living there sometimes…

17. The first CD that I bought online was Houseworks by housethegrate. He even gave me his autograph on a piece of paper that he put in with it! How neat is that?!

18. I love Chinese food, especially their chicken! Slap some jalapeno peppers in with the honey chicken and it’s pure heaven! The best advise I can give to you about Chinese buffets is to go when it’s busy. Sure, you may not get the table you want, but the food’s always top-notch when it’s busy. Also, the restaurant that I go to, Mongolian Grill in Celina Ohio near the Wal-Mart, is the best that I’ve been to! From the service to the selection, it hasn’t been beat yet!

19. The nickname Andy-San was given to me by Jake, one of Ben’s former friends. I liked it so it stuck with me ever since. I changed it to TheAndySan so that I don’t get confused with the other Andy-Sans out there. Or Andy San Dimas, whoever that is…

20. I learned to love window shopping from being so friggin’ poor. It also has helped me curb unnecessary spending when I do have money.

21. I made a Dragon Ball fanfic called DragonBall-X when I was 15 or 16 on a typewriter that my dad had bought and/or found. It takes place after DragonBall-GT. In it, Goku and Vegeta turn out to be alive because their rate of aging is different than a regular human. A Sayian can live to be 1,000 human years because the planet Vegeta rotated at a different speed. Because of something that happened that I don’t remember, Goku and Vegeta can’t leave the dojo and they’re training Goku Jr and Vegeta Jr in a cool dojo in the mountains where Goku grew up in order for them to be the new defenders of Earth. DBX also is kinda a throwback to the good ol’ pre-DBZ Dragon Ball in its lighthearted humor. I didn’t write much of it, but that’s what I can remember. Oh, and Bulma transfered her brain into a robot. Excellent!

22. The 4-Hour Workweek is the most recent book that I’ve purchased. It helped me to stop procrastinating leaving Wal-Mart and just quit already. That Wal-Mart hasn’t carried the book ever since I quit. Coincidence? Hmm…

23. I haven’t missed a single issue of the English Shonen Jump ever since I saw the first issue in Big Bear. Except for one; January 2005 with the Yu-Gi-Oh! card Archfiend of Gilfer inside.

Well, I hope that you learned a little something about me today. I’m off to enjoy my birthday!! See ya!
