Little Known Facts about Me!
My favourite teacher ever was Dr. Cynthia Neville, a Medieval History Prof. from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
My favourite colour is light blue.
I wanted to be an astronaut for all of my childhood. Hence, my mathematical imcompetence was a major source of anxiety to me. Nevertheless, in standardized testing in grade 8, I scored extremely high in math (90 percentile) and yet relatively low in reading etc. (60 percentiles, maybe, or perhaps even lower).
I am a recovering pyromaniac.
Until a few months ago I never shot a gun.
I prefer maple to oak.
I don't like relish on home-made burgers; dislike mustard at A & W.
I found one of my children's teeth in my pocket today.
Love "My Fair Lady."
I prefer Beethoven to both Bach and Mozart, I think.
Prefer La Vita Nuova to The Divine Comedy.
My favourite home-made foods are the last things I would ever order in a restaurant.
My favourite restaurants are Smitty's and The Keg.
My favourite poet is Alfred Lord Tennyson - and not because he has a cool name.
My favourite domestic beer is Keith's; favourite import (these days anyway) is Heineken.
I wear facial hair because I think my face is young-looking and chubby.
Still have not seen the movie 'Avatar,' and am still proud of that fact.
Believe that when I was around 13 I could hold my breathe for at least 2 minutes.
I met my wife in a church rectory.
I split the seat of my pants when Anne-Marie was in labour for Rebecca, and had to get scrubs from the nurse, and all the staff nurses laughed at me.
I am sure that I will come up with other useless facts about me some other time... Would love to hear some about you too!
