What are you? A guy or something?

Postby rachaellove » Thu Mar 12, 2009 5:46 pm

Hey guys!
I've been enjoying getting to know you guys over the last week or so, but I thought it'd be cool to have a little thread where we just answer little questions about ourselves.. You know, the basics. I'll start!

Real name: Rachael
Location: Oklahoma City, OK US
Age: 25 (I know it may be a touchy subject. If you don't wanna answer, you don't have to. :wink:)
Status: Single, no kids
Occupation: Audio book producer, web designer and video producer for Tate Publishing.
Interests: Music is my passion. I worked in radio for over 5 years and plan to start a station here in 2011. I also watch a lot of movies and am working my way through several TV shows.. 11, to be exact. :)
Tell me something random about yourself: I once ate rat poison that looked like green cheese.. I thought it was from the moon. Of course, I had to have my stomach pumped. :doh:
Bret or Jemaine?: In all the time that I've spent thinking about this, I still can't make a solid decision. If pressed, I guess I'd have to go with Jemaine.

As someone with OCD, let me tell you that the notion that OCD people are strictly neat freaks is incorrect :) I should show you some pictures of my Grandma's basement. There's two schools of OCD people: those that clean, and those that hoard. And she HOARDS.
