A Few Important Facts About Me That You Probably Didn't Know...

I sometimes turn the mirror in my car so that it shows just half of my face. I do this not so I can appreciate me, but so that it looks like I'm in a Hitchcock movie, like North by Northwest. It makes the ride home more suspenseful.

There are two albums to which I have danced to all the songs in succession: Air Supply's Greatest Hits and Lionel Richie's Can't Slow Down.

I once squeezed a girl's elbow at a party only to find out later that it was actually her breast. She thought this meant we were dating.

In my younger years I was caught streaking/skinny dipping by adults three times: once on a bike trip, once at Huck Finn day camp at Many Point Scout Camp, once changing into Native American regalia for a Scouting ceremony.

I hope this provides some insight into me.

You forgot the time you were putting on your sports kilt in Kevin's front yard and the St. Peter cops descended on you. Or did I remember that wrong?

You've got that wrong, they gave me a Unity Award for nudity that day.

Why exactly does the world need to know all this?

It forces you to confront your own demons, the ones that lurk in the shadows of your life when the light of mine is held up for public inspection. Ask Dan'l - he'll quote that pretty much verbatim.

You weren't supposed to ever tell anyone about us dancing all the way through all the songs on Air Supply's Greatest Hits in succession. But still, it WAS magical!!!

Make it four times lad. You forgot the time we were all naked playing boat wars at that camp in Stearns county and that mom and her son showed up to camp like two hours early. I got burned in a very uncomfortable way that day.

Hmm...I think I was getting that confused with the other two times. Makes Scouting seem like a nudist club, although in our defense, skinning dipping at Huck Finn camp seems to be in character with the book, and there's nothing you can do if you're an actor and there's no changing room. I got to see fellow students, male and female, naked at school during acting season if there wasn't enough time for a dressing room costume change. That's just the dues you pay for your craft.
