    I believe that this little green frog carved out of jade brings me money when I need it. It's odd, but I think he has come through for me everytime!

    The most unusual thing about me:

    Even though I've had my license since I was a kid, I don't drive a car because I know I'm a bad driver. If that wasn't an unusual quality in a person, the roads would be nearly deserted.

    The oddest thing I've ever done:

    I ate a Chia Pet onstage as part of a comedy performance.

    It may not be that odd or unusual(then again...maybe it is!!) but during the hurricane season down here in South Florida my buddies and I will chase down and document any landfalling hurricanes.

    Forget what you see on the Weather Channel...thats vanilla. We don't sit pretty in the outer/mid bands where most people have had their hurricane experience...no way, we track the damn thing until we know we are in ground zero...the hurricanes inner core!! Love it..absolutely love the rush, the insanity of it all.

    Hurricane Charley back in 2004 in downtown Punta Gorda was by far our most intense and hell bent experience! We rode out the entire thing outside...the insanity/shock/adrenaline meter pegged at 9K RPM's!!!
    An experience none of us will EVER forget....

    Go to link above and click on the "Hurricane Charley" thumbnail for a video clip- My buddies and I were just down the street from the guy shooting this insane footage....

    I don't know if this is that unusual but I have a bit of a freakish memory. My earliest memories are from the age of 2. By 10 I knew all the US state capitals by heart (don't ask me why I needed to know this that is what makes me freakish). I have had nightmares of my birth so theoretically my earliest memories are from the very beginning.

    The good thing about having such a memory is that you become very popular when people are picking teams for Trivial Pursuit.

    When I was four I had a dream that I was in a mall, and my brother was in an elevator in said mall, and the elevator he was in was empty, but the one below him was full of vampires, and somehow he slipped through the cracks and fell into the vampire elevator, and I couldn't save him.

    Well, I decided to try anyways, but to get to the elevator, I had to cross a patch of the floor that stretched from wall to wall, and was patrolled by a frankenstein monster that would come out and cut up anyone who crossed with a buzzsaw. Well, when I stepped onto his path, he came running at me, went to chop me up with the buzzsaw, and I reached up and touched the blade with one finger and the blade stopped, and he couldn't kill me. I've never had a nightmare since.

    yah , I have something odd !! I have a digital camera and since i'm a photography maniac I carry it wherever I go (sometimes even in home) ... I take it everywhere even to my dreams!! and I get rare and amazing shots and videos, sometimes they're so amazing that when I wake up I go straight to my camera to check if the pictures still there (but they don't T_T)!!! .. don't blame me I was too sleepy :p ..

    Sometimes I ask questions out loud and then answer them.

    Another strange thing is that I write stories, only I never actually write them down. They're all in my head. I've been writing them since I was a kid and they evolve and change as I grow. A little bit of theme like music and I can get lost in an unwritten novel or series for hours.

    If I'm lazy I'll pick something up with my toes instead of bending over.

    And I synchronize my movents with the closing of doors.

    I dream about things before they happen, a family gift actually.

    And a lot lot more.

    1) all my dreams come true (when will I dream those damn Mega Millions numbers)

    2) I talk to my dead relatives (grandmother and great-grandmother lately) in some of my dreams. been like that since I was a kid

    When people used to ask me about my job, I would lie, just because if I told the truth, people thought that I was lying.

    Probably the most unusual thing about me now is that I obey traffic laws while riding my bicycle on the road.

    Well, usually.

    As a kid, I loved looking at the men's underwear section in the Sears catalog... well, maybe that's not so strange (?)

    Sleep walking/talking/fighting/arguing/ironing/singing etc etc

    I've been doing it since I was about 12, and the more mentally exhausted I am the worse the problem is (and no, I have never taken stilnox/ambien). And of course all the sleep walking makes me even more tired for the next day.

    I have reportedly had coherent and intelligent conversations with housemates about politics and religion, completely stripped the bed (including pillow cases), gone around the house and removed all the light bulbs, packed my bags for some imaginary trip away, woken up the house signing Pearl Jam top note or having a very loud one sided argument. It goes on and on.

    It tends to scare the crap out of people.

    Strange/Odd thing about me...
    I sometimes talk to myself.

    (and if anyone catches me doing it, I just say that talking to myself is my only intelligent conversation of the day)

    I produce the material (photo & video) for a national level female bodybuilder's website, and I'm also the webmaster of her site. Of course, that still don't match up to the "Sleep walking/talking/fighting/arguing/ironing/singing etc etc" - and that brings me to a question for Ignorance77: Have you ever done a sleep-workout? hehe

    I tend to dream things before they happen... usually in vivid detail.

    I have been known to sit bolt upright in bed, have an intelligent and lucid conversation with who ever is there, even answering direct questions... all while asleep. I never have any memory of doing this.

    Back in 1996, when Hurricane Fran was still lurking in the Atlantic... I kept saying that it was going to not only hit NC, but that it would come inland around Cape Fear and cut up through the center of the state, where I lived at the time... even though the forecasts at the time were for it to miss NC altogether. On the night that it made landfall, I was outside in direct path of the eye the entire night. I'd never experienced the heart of a hurricane before, only the outer bands, and I wanted to have the experience. It made landfall as a Cat 3 near Cape Fear and moved up through the center of the state... the eye came right over me. Totally wild night! I'm still in awe of nature...

    I talk in my sleep, but apparently my diction is very good. It's not a mumbly, sleep talk. It sounds like I'm awake
