I’m not blogging today, so instead I thought I would share with you:

15 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

(Think of it as an extension of my About page.)

  1. I was an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts.
  2. I didn’t own a home until I was 48 years old.
  3. I can type about 90 words per minute (and about 30 backwards to fix mistakes, for a net of about 60).
  4. When I worked in photo lithography the constant exposure to photographic chemicals caused my hands to discolor and swell to twice their normal size. For a while.
  5. I swam breaststroke on my high school swim team.
  6. In Monterey, California I worked as a negative stripper.
  7. I make the best sausage and leek pizza you’ve ever had. From scratch.
  8. I’ve officiated at dozens of weddings. But don’t ask, I don’t do them any more.
  9. Although I had never done it before, I once drove a 16 foot panel truck with a Chandler & Price letterpress in the back from New York to California.
  10. I’ve never played a round of golf in my life.
  11. I was an avid mountain biker until I hung up my clipless pedals (those are the ones with the clips on the bottom) a couple of years ago.
  12. My father either worked at, managed, or taught printing his entire life.
  13. I enjoy both sudoku and crossword puzzles.
  14. I drive a Volvo.
  15. When I first enrolled in university, I thought I was going to become a tax lawyer.

Your turn, anything we should know?
