10 wierd facts about me

10 weird facts about me:

1-I've watched close to 900 movies this year
2-I've watched 95% of them at 1.5x to 2x speed (there has been less than 20 that I've watched at 'normal' speed)
3-I carry around more things in my pockets than a 'normal' person should (things as bizarre as a mirror, toothpicks, a USB drive, handkerchief(2), gum, flashlights, lip balm, eye-drops, Listerine Pocketmist, a comb (in the winter only), my "famous" grandpa-salt, knives, mini-leatherman, nail-clippers, and the usual keys)
--Here is a random sampling (minus the handkerchiefs, I'm not sure why)(yeah, I really do carry around 2-3 mini pens)
4-I wear steel-toed shoes--for no reason (they look like normal shoes--not combat boots or anything; but they HAVE to be steel toed--I even almost ordered a pair of steel-toed wing-tipped Dockers so I could wear "nice" looking shoes on occasions)
5-I have driven a Hybrid since January 2003, you know, when gas only cost $1.30 a gallon, and analysts said the $3,000 more that I paid (above a 'standard' Civic) would never pay for itself (and it's paid for itself 4 times over--yes, I've saved nearly $12,000 by buying my car, nearly $5k in gov't refunds/tax-credits, and not having to pay the HOV toll for a single passenger---hybrids get to drive in the car-pool lane for free (one time $80 fee, versus $40/month)--and I get 50mpg)
6-I'm married to an alien
7-I take medicine that makes me sensitive to the sun, so I rarely go outside
8-I gave up my television in January of this year (but I still watch all my favorite shows, just online, and with only 2 minutes of commercials, instead of 15-18; oh, and in case it wasn't clear earlier, I watch all the movies that I've watched on my computer, except for about 16 of them)
9-I was in the military for over 10 years, I joined to get money for college.... I've never been to college
10-I love solving problems, cooking, computers, the internet, saving money: TVP, Whey-based milk substitute (haven't bought milk in over 1 year), buying in bulk; and singing church hymns--although I suck at singing.

--Oh yeah, my wife is from Norway (and is a Norwegian citizen); Just, so that people don't think I'm making up the part about being married to an alien. :)

So my friend asked me to PROVE that I have saved nearly $12,000 by driving my hybrid, and I guess I can't, well, I can't prove that that is all I have saved TODAY, but by the time my car dies and is ready for the junkyard, I will have EASILY saved $12,000 (I am still getting 50MPG, and that savings will continue to add up over time) So, Random Fact #11 about me... Apparently I like to make up random figures that I believe to be true, but may in fact be complete fabrications--don't trust my statistics :) or trust that I believe them to be true, whether they are or are not ;) Thanks!
the total of movies ended up being only 813 (which is CLOSE to 900, but not quite) --not that anyone is interested...
