Got this from meropa and was curious:

Ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!

I don't think I SHOULD know anything about you that you don't want to tell, but...

Ok. Do you have any siblings?

Three brothers. My two full brothers are Jim, who lives in Kansas City, KS, and Kip (Christopher), who lives in Orinda, CA (near, if not in, Marin County, near where bayarts and baychap live). I have a half-brother, Pat, who lives in the northern suburbs of Chicago.

Question 1.2: Are they older or younger than you?

All younger. Jim is 21 months younger, Kip is 11 months younger than Jim, and Patrick is 19 1/2 years younger than I. (Mom remarried when I was 18, and was still in her childbearing years, obviously...)

I drive a 1992 Honda Accord LX that I bought on my 14th wedding anniversary. My 29th is this Sunday.

Wow! That must be one heckuva good little car!

And - thanks for the reminder - that means that Jack and Dana have a wedding anniversary, as well!

... whoa ... wait a sec ...

You got married in the middle of winter?!?!

I thought they got married in the spring. Sunday is also Mary Cecelia's birthday. She'll be 39. Next year, she'll be thirty-ten.

The car has fewer than 120,000 miles on it. For a long time, I would leave the car at home for Mary and take a limo to the airport when I had to travel, which didn't make a whole lot of sense because Mary wouldn't drive all that much. I started driving to the airport again when my company decreed that we couldn't take limos anymore, so it would go 25 miles and sit for a week, when it would go another 25 miles. Generally it's stayed close to home, though it has been on a few long trips, particularly when it was our primary vehicle.

It has not given me one moment's trouble. A couple of minor problems, obviously, and things have worn out, but other than that it's been solid as a rock. As I look at it, every mile I put on it is money in my pocket. Believe me, Lisa, if I were to recommend a car to you, it would be the Accord.

And, yes, Mary and I got married on January 28. Her parents got married on that day, as did her cousin and his wife. My in-laws were married close to 60 years, Mary's cousin will be married 40 on Sunday, and Mary and I will be married 29. It was a good day to get married. (Twila and Bruce were also married in January; their 29th anniversary was on the 7th.)

I drove a '91 Accord LX for years. It was a great car.

I hit "post" before I gave the other half of the answer. We also have a 1997 Honda Odyssey minivan which is "MARY'S" and which we use as our primary vehicle. I drive the car mostly to work, the airport and occasionally out of town.

I lie. Not a 1997. A 2002. Another great car.

Are you left or right-handed?

Depends on the task. Typically right-handed. You?
