Three things about me!
I work part-time as a public address announcer for a nearby high school and local satellite campus. I’m not sure how many people that I know actually recognize my voice (usually I’m in the press box or otherwise hidden from view) and realize that I work in this capacity.
I love Byzantine history. That’s absolutely my favorite subject.
I’m a relentlessly devoted Third Eye Blind fan.
My Most Liked Post: “Hot Aliens“
Questions From Mercury the Scribe:
What scares you the most?
I actually have a fairly significant fear of spiders, although that’s waned somewhat (thankfully). I really struggle with providing blood (for tests, etc.), and I also experience extreme paranoia about oversleeping.
Do you believe in ghosts or the paranormal?
I love a good ghost story and enjoy reading on the subject. I’ve also had a chance to visit several historic places famed for their hauntings. Several of my family members are big believers, but I’ve never had the personal experience to make me a believer in the same way. However, I’m very fascinated by the topic.
What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
I once was (accidentally) doused in sour milk as a seven-year-old (in front of my entire second-grade class).
If you knew you would get away with it, would you kill someone?
Karma seems to dominate my life in one way or another, so, even when successfully acting in secret, I really try to only create good karma for myself (can’t ever seem to create enough though).
What’s your current favorite post that you’ve written? 😀 Please share and add what makes it special to you.
I’ve always enjoyed architecture and cityscapes, so, whenever I discovered that Wikipedia has several pages devoted to the tallest buildings of various cities around the world, I set out to make a similar page for my hometown. Unfortunately, Wikipedia decided that my hometown wasn’t quite good enough for such a page and (despite my arguments and pleas) deleted the page. I tried my best to recreate that page on this blog – Tallest Buildings of Uniontown, Pennsylvania. I took all of the included photographs myself. So, while not especially glamorous or the most impressive piece of writing, this was definitely a topic that I both cared about and wanted to share. I’ve forgiven Wikipedia.
My Questions for my Future Nominees:
- Who is your favorite author?
- Time or money? You can have an unlimited supply of one or the other.
- How do you find or make time to write (or pursue any similar interest)?
- Zombie apocalypse (refuge with friends) or stranded on a desert island (alone) – which would you prefer and/or be more likely to survive?
- What’s on your pizza?
