10 things I've done that most of you probably haven't.

1. Was raised by an employee of Psychic Friends Network. (My Mom)
2. Had someone tell me my skeleton is worth $100,000 based on the uniqueness of my bone structure. (Rare bone disorder. Good for freaking out x-ray technicians.)
3. Worked for the man who lit the torch for the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta. He was a 5-time Olympian and a silver medalist for show jumping. (Michael Matz, now retired and trains racehorses.)
4. Was once surrounded by the sheriff's department and handcuffed. (I was staying in a trailer with a friend at someone's farm- her landlord forgot I was using the trailer and called the cops saying there was a vagrant/drug user using the trailer.)
5. Sang onstage with Meatloaf during a concert. (I sang the line "Stop Right There" in "Paradise by the Dashboard Light".)
6. Made out with a complete stranger at the same concert while on stage with Meatloaf.( I was part of the demonstration on how he sold the song to the record companies.)
7. Once chased a cow with a car during a "round up".
8. Had to hide a bag of oregano from the cops during a traffic stop. (Raided my mom's spice rack with a friend and then drove to her house to make lasgana- she got stopped for speeding).
9. Watched my brother hang two beer bottles from his nipples (one on each nipple) on national television. (He was on MTV's "Sink or Swim". His "talent" greatly impressed the judges- "Good Charlotte")
10. Begged my parents to buy a horse at a thoroughbred auction,-- said horse gave birth a month later to multi-millionaire race horse. (Sharon Brown- gave birth to Holy Bull : he won 2.4 million dollars in 1993-1994.)

You know, this ten thing meme is just pointing out to me how truly dull my life is compared to other folks...*sigh*

I feel exactly the same way! But when I really peer at these lists, I notice a lot of two-items-from-the-same-event, or just an interesting spin on an event that's only a little out of the ordinary. I also notice that the meme is instantly interpreted as "Ten COOL things I've done that you haven't and prove therefore that I'm cooler than you," which may not be its intent.

Nice icon, by the way. That's Mikey in Rave Macbeth, right?

Oh-- so it's not just ten "cool" things? Well, in that case, I might actually have something to say! *grin*

Yep, it's a Rave Macbeth Mike, I got it from [livejournal.com profile] suzvoy and threw the word on. I like Mikey with hair. *g*

That meme took hours to do! I had to call up my best friend from high school, because her memory for craziness was better than my own. *g* You, Roxy, crack me up constantly on lj, so I have no doubt your life is anything but dull.

Heh. Fun list! Especially your escapades with law enforcement.

Was your mom one of the psychics, or just a staffer with normal abilities?

Thank you. It was incredibly hard to come up with. *g*

I was 17 I think when I was surrounded in a Tommy Lee Jones-The Fugitive manner, also I was in my pajamas. I think my slippers convinced them of my nefarious intentions. After being uncuffed, I then promptly had an asthma attack from the adrenaline rush that was so bad, EMS was called in for oxygen and a different inhalation steroid. Boy were they sorry! It also turns out my friend had left a message on her landlord's answering machine explaining that I was going to be using the trailer for the weekend. Much snafus all around that weekend.

My mom was one of the psychics. She had her own phone line and name. "Queenie". She spent hours on the phone giving readings when I was growing up- which meant I had to play quietly. She believes in her abilities, and well, I believe in self-fulling prophesies and the power of suggestion. *g* As I like to tell her- if she was really psychic, she would have grounded me until I was 30 for half the stuff I got away with.

Crazy and took like 3 hours to come up with. I ended up calling my best friend from high school and asking- "What crazy shit have you gotten me into?"

BF: "I'm innocent. I haven't seen you in a year, so it wasn't me this time!"

Me: "No, like in the past. I need 10 things I've done that other people haven't..."

BF: "Oh, mmmm... hey, what about that time with the oregano?"

Me: "Oh yeah, and I had to hide it from the cops."

BF: "Especially since I had pot under my seat. We would have never survived a search."

Me: "WHAT?!?!"

BF: "Did I forget to tell you that?"

So who knows what I've been a party to, unknowingly. *g*

I've done 7 a few times. I have friends out in ranch country. My skeleton isn't worth anything, though.

Actually all skeletons are worth around 10,000 dollars according to my forensic anthropology book. They're still not enough unique skeletons to go around in university study, and apparently plastic reproductions lack the subties found in human differentialism. So never think you're worthless! *g*

Mine just happens to be particularly valuble because of my bone disorder. I was fifteen when this specialist told me that, at which point, I replied, "can I get that in advance? I promise, 60 years or so from now, you'll get my bones."
