Ten Things Meme

Ten things I’ve done that you prob­a­bly haven’t done.

1) Been a guest on Oprah (and the BBC, and Sverige, and a bunch of oth­er shows).
2) Been inter­viewed for Glam­our mag­a­zine (and yes, they used the arti­cle) and a mess of oth­er print publications.
3) Filed a crim­i­nal com­plaint that result­ed in Geor­gia’s first arrest for an inter­net-relat­ed crime that was­n’t child porn or cred­it card fraud-related
4) Was the first female tech­ni­cal employ­ee hired by a major ISP
5) Made up a fake orga­ni­za­tion, sta­tionery, valid address & phone # and all, in order to safe­ly cor­re­spond with mis­sion­ar­ies in coun­tries where they offi­cial­ly weren’t on behalf of my employer
6) Been a cus­to­di­al and non-cus­to­di­al par­ent and step­par­ent, as well as a step-grand­moth­er, before the age of 30.
7) Turned down a seri­ous mar­riage pro­pos­al from a Sau­di Ara­bi­an man, com­plete with a dia­mond ring — at 13.
8) Held an SO through the effects of a sui­cide attempt, right up ’til the para­medics applied the defib­ril­la­tor. Also at 13 (it was a busy year).
9) Spent a day busk­ing in Paris with a fel­low I’d just met that morn­ing. Quite suc­cess­ful­ly, I might add.
10) Worked in a broth­el. Okay, I was train­ing the madame as to the use of the PC she’d bought from me.
