Got to sit in a bar and pick the brain of an MIT Vala Victorian.

I have been acquainted with two serial killers and lived to tell about it. The first is Ted Bundy. He lived in my neighborhood in Tacoma, WA, was in my class all through junior high and high school. He was our paper boy. Our schools had a High Achievement Program. We were both in it and had classes together. In HA English when we were junior or seniors, I recall he sat next to me on my left. He was one of those tall, lanky boys that leaned back in his desk chair and spread his legs out. It made him look more aloof. He didnt talk much in class. He signed my friend Christine's yearbook just before we graduated, and wrote something really bizarre. Something like we will now eat the monster or it will eat us. She lived across the street from Ted, had even asked him to a tolo once but he said no. He respected her in his own way.

The 2nd serial killer I have known is Andrew Cunanin who killed Versace. As a young mother, I was only a frequent customer in the Rite Aide Drug Store where Andrew had been an Assistant Manager just before going on a cross country killing spree. I remember seeing his name on his badge. He seemed to me to be hyper, moving around quicker than normal. I went to Mass and the priest announced that Andrew's mother had called. She wanted the whole congregation to prayer for her son. And pray that he turn himself in.

Both of these men met their demise in Florida.

That's scary!

Climbed the mast of a tall ship, gone a quarter mile underground in search of a new cave bug, been rescued by the Coast Guard, chased by a helicopter, won political office, been rescued by a movie star, received a death threat from neo-Nazis, thrown an octopus, petted a giant jellyfish, chained myself to a warship, got choked by a cop, been on TV, lived on a commune, roamed the forests as a mushroom picker, I dunno, the list goes on...

I've been purpously set on fire. I was well-prepared and right by a pond just in case things went sideways.

Twins! Identical frickin' twins!

Set people on fire, four times a day.
Dropped burning LPG around myself, deliberately, multiple times.
Built a set for Phantom of the Opera
Cut a well known (grammy winning multiple platinum records) from the playlist because the show was going overtime. This artist got the chop because a. we had to pick someone b. they treated their backing musos very badly.

Spent twelve nights with a Russian girl and didn't have sex. (Technically something I didn't do, but still.)
