Has she kept that promise? That'd be really sweet.

(Oh and I'd already heard this story before when you mentioned you were getting married the first time)

I knew Rkolter's story. Netpoet's story is kind of awesome, not for a comic, but as a side story in a comic, definitely.

Well, more about me:
1. I wear red sweater now. I have a lot of red shirts, I like them. But rarely wear them, because they make my face look very pale.
2. People who just met me think that I am a very quiet person. People who knew me for a while know that I am very loud.
3. I believe that the best film that was ever made is "Stalker" by Andrey Tarkovsky. I ma not sure of it, though, since I haven't watched all films that were ever made.
4. My sister's name is Jugoslava, derived from Yugoslavia. People often ask her if she's gonna change her name now that there's no more Yugoslavia, which, of course, she doesn't intend to.
5. I had lapses in memory from drinking two times in my life. I also had serious hungover two times, on different occasions. The number might rise.
6. If I wasn't named Srdjan, I would probably be named Svetozar, which I would like significantly less. If it Wasn't Svetozar, it would probably be Jovan which is not bad, but still I prefere my current name.
7. Things I wish to learn some day in my life: Speak French, play Harmonica, dance.
8. I have a bad handwriting, supposedly because I learned to write on my own about the age of 5 (before grade school and I never went to kindergarden). Thus I got used to writing some letters awkwardly. For instance, most of letters are written from up to down, I write most of them from down to up. I write "o" by starting it at the lowest point and making a circle in counter-clock-wise direction.
9. I can't differ left from right instantly, it usually takes me a second or so from when someone tells me "left" or "right" till when I know which direction they ment.
10. I fell my driving test twice. That was in 1999 and I haven't had time to take new driving lessons and to take the test again since then. One of the reasons for falling: see 9.
11. I read exceptionally slow. Which is sad because I want to read as much as I can.
12. I used to chat over ICQ with a girl who lives two streets from me. We lost the contact meanwhile, and never met in person.
13. I drink about three coffies a day. Instant, with a lot of sugar, optionally milk.

That reminds me...I'm a James, but my parent's second choice was Joaquin. Another name thrown about was Maciek, which I kind of like and am saving for a dog name or something. They brainstormed a few multicultural names (Ewan was one of them, watch out War!). I'm a tad bit disappointed they went with an ordinary name.

I don't have mass amounts of hair...as some might think *cough* K-Dawg *cough*

I actually started a comic on keenspace a year before I ever came on the forums here.

My name is Tavis, I'm not as bad as I seem here, and up untill I was eight I was a white blond...my mother never forgave me.
Also..uh...I...like pie.

And I'd like to go on a road trip and chill with all of you...cept lego..cause he'd be my navigator..and they dont get to chill...though they do get to party.

My duedate as a baby was December 9th (and I was supposed to be a Carol or a Joseph). I was born January 7th and apparently I looked like a pumpkin. Chubby and orange.

The first time I got drunk I was 20 months old. I gave up serious drinking after that. :wink:

I said some people might remember it. :)

And yes, overall. Maybe not five minutes each day, but it's averaged out to at least that. We joke about it a lot, and probably always will, unless I suddenly turn bizarro and dislike my back beingscratched.

Other things in the same vein as others:

1) I was named after the WWII movie, Von Ryan's Express.
2) If I'd been female, my name would have been Christina Marie

And...

I was born on October 24th at 10:25pm Mountain time. My family, nearly all of it on both sides, lives in Eastern time (that's +2 hours for those who aren't familiar). When my father called them to tell them the news, they all looked at their clocks and said, "He was born October 25th at 12:25am"

For years, until my teenage years, I had two birthdays. Finally my parents told me that I could choose one birthday or another, but that people really should only have one. I thought about it for a few days and decided I'd keep the October 24th one.

Also, October 24th is 1024, or 2 to the 10th power. 10:25pm is 1025, or 2 to the 10th power, plus 1. I was born to be a geek.

Ditto.

I'm 6'5", and my wife is 5'1". We hardly notice.

I've been going to a chiropractor since I was ten.

I used a pretzel ring to figure out my wife's ring size when I was getting her engagement ring.

I can't straighten my middle finger or my pinky on both hands.

My height is ca 183 cm.
My wheight averages at just over 56 kg.
I am underwheight.

This, coupled with poor eyesight, poor stamina and general downsizing of the defence budget is why I haven't done military service.
I am going to try again if I manage to exceed the wheight of 65 kgs before my 24th birthday (that's a four and a half year deadline). Ideally, I would try to ensure that some of that added wheight is muscle mass.
The goal is to get into a demanding position, either command or specialist.

Seconded and seconded.

I like to say that I'm like Vargas in Thunderball, except that I don't go fishing as often as I could.

When I was seven I broke my left leg twice in the same year: once jumping off the roof of a playhouse, and once going Crazy-Carpeting down a bumpy, snowy, icy hill. My left leg is now my stronger leg.

I'm pretty blind in one eye and have poor depth perception - which makes me act like a cat without whiskers and bump into things all the time (that, or I'm just a complete klutz to begin with..).

When I listen to music on my headphones, I like to chew on the cord. Sometimes without even realizing I'm doing it.


That's all I can think of at the moment.
Oh, and..
