So you’ve already read the famous I Embrace My Randomness post and thought, “Wow. There can’t be any more random things to know about JD.”
Wrong! Behold: More random things I do so you don’t have to:
1. I draw. Look! I drew this:
Do you sense a theme here? Do you also sense that I kind of suck at drawing? But I don’t draw just cats. Among my other drawing achievements:
- a friendly worm wearing a jaunty top hat
- a friendly sun wearing jaunty sunglasses
- a friendly caterpillar wearing a jaunty top hat
2. I am famous. Remember that popular Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass album? With the girl covered in whipped cream?
THAT WAS ME!
Impossible, you say? Well, I’m older than I look. And there’s nothing more youthening than covering yourself in whipped cream. Try it!
3. I have an overpowering urge to squeeze a large, fat bird. I don’t want to hurt it, just squeeze it gently. Maybe just enough to make it squawk.
4. I am singlehandedly bringing back the turban as a hair fashion statement for women. Check it out:
This lady can see, is able to eat without getting a
mouthful of hair, and looks lovely and serene.
This lady (aka JD) is technically blind,
has a giant mouthful of hair, and looks
a right ol’ mess.
5. I have an inexplicable crush on Eli Wallach as Tuco in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. (And, yes, he is the “ugly” of the trio.)
Brief synopsis: The Good (Clint Eastwood), the Bad (Lee Van Cleef), and the Ugly (Eli Wallach) have spent about 6 hours of the 7-hour-long movie looking for a graveyard where a bunch of money is buried. Tuco finds the graveyard and must find the actual grave, all to the accompaniment of Ennio Morricone’s awesome “Ecstasy of Gold.”
6. I co-wrote a song with my brother. While it never hit the charts, we felt it was pretty catchy at the time:
7. I am better than a lot of people. Why? Because my eyes are completely and totally brown. When I was a kid, my mom noted that my eyes had no hazel coloring (unlike my brother’s eyes, which are a little lighter than mine). I thought that was a sign of genetic superiority. I guess I still do, even tho I daresay I’ve met many people with pure brown eyes.
