    I am from Milwaukee, WI, right next to Lake Michigan.

    Um, something unique about me would be that I don't drink alcohol. I am not against alcohol use, I just don't drink it because of the meds I take and I don't feel the need to be drinking all the time.

    Originally I was from a suburb just east of Cleveland OH called Warrensville Heights but I moved to Tampa FL to go to school and never returned back to Ohio.

    Hmmm...something unique. I am incredibly artistic but I've never had formal training other than general school art classes.

    Im from Az.

    I can make something neat, cool, awsome and pretty out of anything. I love doing crafty stuff and I love coming up with new ideas. I actually had my art work in stores at the Grand Canyon, all over Az. and some other states. I was sssooo proud of that.

    Oh and Im also a girly girl too but just like Kai and Mozzergirl I can ride a bike, well, more like a 4 wheeler but I am dang good at it.

    I like this!

    I am from New York but live in VT.

    Unique? I like Debbie's reply! I have 4 tattoos (5 when I get the money), 7 piercings on my left ear. I broke my nose when I was about 10 (baseball bat incident) and have a slighly crooked nose. I am NOT psychic but get "feelings" and have odd random thoughts that very often seem to happen or be true (this happens very often and does not seem to be coincidental to me and sometimes bothers me).

    I was born In MI just out side of detroit. But have moved around a lot and have spent time living in florida, ohio, Indiana and now Texas.

    I am a night owl. I have been nocturnal ever since i was a teenager. I love looking up at the stars but enjoy the blues, puples and other colors the city light can color the sky with also. I canot sleep at night unless there is enough light in the room to make it seem like day light comming through the blinds.

    mozzergurl replied to mattthecat's response:
    That is so different that you need light to sleep! what does your md say about that... do they worry about it.. or just figure that's your sleep cycle? I find that very strange... I need total darkness with maybe some background noise... I can tolerate the light of a t.v. only...Well I guess we all have our own little quirks... That's something I've never heard before though, you truly are unique!

    Something else about my darling husband (mattcat) that used to bother me when we were first dating is he has to have the apartment freezing like 60 degrees or colder to sleep also. Weird huh? I've gotten used to it though.

    Me, I'm orginally from Southern Indiana then moved to Central for college, Gorgiia for a brief spell, then back to Central Indiana. After that moved to Texas to be with Matt, were I've lived for the past 10 years.

    Something unique about me?? I was the first female in my family to get a college degree. My sister was the second, and we went to the same college.

    margaroo replied to jselleck's response:
    I am born and raised in Los Angeles. I live only 3 miles from the house I grew up in. (I guess makes me unique too.)

    Unique: I am very organized. My sister would get me to reorganize her fridge whenever I would visit. Earlier in the year when I spent a month with a friend recovering from surgery, I streamed lined things to help her recuperate and make her life easier when I had to leave. When I reorganized her pantry and we found stuff in there from the 1990's.

    OK, I've come over and reorganize someone's kitchen if you come to my house and wash my windows.

    Well, I'm an Indiana girl. I am about 15 miles from Chicago, but I hate going there because of the traffic.

    Something unique about me. Let's see. I am afraid of showers and will not take one. Also, I have a thing for dragonflies. Dragonflies represent new beginnings so, I have them everywhere. Even tattoo'd a dragonfly around my wrist when I got divorced after 21 years

    Mozzergurl the sleep thing has never really come up with the doctors accept when i had a sever bout of insomina and that later turned out to be a vitamine D defficiantcy. The doc did not seem to think it was wierd about the light thing his opinion was what ever makes me comfortable enough to sleep is good to him. By the way my wife was right I do like it cold when I sleep but it is not as bad as she makes it seem uper 60s is what I need just cold enough to have use a light blanket. I like to snugle up with a blanket i do not know what is wierd about that. Thanks for your intrest.I have to admit this post is cool.
