7 Things you may not know about me.Yeah I got tagged by a few folks. So in light of that I will go ahead and try to think up 7 things you don't know about me... which is actually kinda hard since I share quite a bit of myself here.

So let's get to it!

1. I sleep on my living-room couch 90% of the time. It's a habit I picked up over the years of hating being shut away from where everyone else was and from the years I was "kicked out" of my room at the apartment because I snored weirdly and fell asleep to loud movies. Aside from habit though, part of me likes having cushion on two sides of my body at once. Subconscious cry for someone to share my bed with? Who knows?! But I sleep on the couch anyways. The couch I currently use has been hurt by me of course, many of the support springs have snapped due to my weight and over-use of them. So if you ever visit, sit in the armchairs or the speckled couch, not the dark one.

2. I have about a dozen pictures and posters that I haven't picked up frames for or hung up in general. I would like to hang them up but laziness persists and they'll keep safe where I have them. More than likely once I have my own place or get tired of sleeping on a fucked up couch I'll put up some scenery in my room that I'll end up sleeping in.

3. I've recently been looking into gathering some collectibles. Bishoujo statues of various heroes and villains attract me, and any ship models from sci-fi/fantasy settings would be awesome as well. Would love to get my hands on some statues of Poison Ivy, Tali, Garrus and a whole boatload of other awesome characters. Unfortunately my collection is a collection of coins and pins and a few other small collectibles and not statues thus far. The reason? Money. Go figure, right?

4. I can no longer stand what would pass for "fast food". KFC, Subway and occasionally Taco Bell are about all I can stand these days. Restaurants like applebees and the like are still OK, but anything remotely close to junk/fast food I can barely stomach anymore.

5. Never call me John or Luke. Jean(Gene) is far preferable to either of those names. I don't know what it is but being called John or Luke sets me off and annoys me to no end. Actually no, it angers me, and it's a quick way to get on my shit-list if the behavior persists. Jean(Gene) or Jean(as in my actual name Jean-Luc, pronounced with french accents and a rolling J/zh sound that you find in words like measure) are what I like to hear most often. If you have a nickname for me, make sure I'm alright with it. I've had some doozies backfire a few times in the past and it's not pleasant for anyone.

6. I mentioned this in a tweets with SailorTweek earlier today, but it merits saying here. I am deathly afraid of being forgotten, ignored, unwanted. avoided and everything in-between. I have friendship issues, it's true. I do find it hard to connect with others, and when I feel I am the only one trying to contribute to a conversation or to a relationship I can't help but get the idea that, hey, I'm not wanted, I'm not good enough or worth someone's time. Because of that I'll stop talking, stop supporting people in their endeavors, possibly even cut off communications altogether if I feel it won't affect my other social partners, groups and contexts. Part of the reason I write is in the hopes that while I may be forgotten as a person, as a personality in someone's life, my writing might persist and in a way the author in me, my ideas, will be remembered long after I am gone.

7. I adore the experience of reading a book. Yes, I know, that's something you do know, but what you may not know is that I hate reading digital novels and the like. Give me a paperback or hardcover book any day of the week. The feel and smell of paper. The tactile sensation that comes with every turn of a page or setting it down to let a certain moment or idea sink in truly immerses me into the worlds that books transport me to. I leave everything I've ever learned, every stressful thought or outside motive on the table next to me the moment I pick up a book and begin to sink into the depths of its pages. It's a liberating experience, and I don't see why more people don't enjoy the activity or the actual books themselves. Next time you're at a book store, look for Chronicles of the Black Company. I can't recommend it enough and I will continue to recommend it until I can talk to others about it in depth.

Yup that's it. Hope you all learned a thing or two about me.

I would tag people but I'm too lazy. So instead I'll just say if you read this you have been tagged. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
