Fun Facts!

Here, I shall post a list of facts about me so that we can get caught up again.  They are the answers to various questions that have been asked of me over the years by random Deddrie fans and such.  Anything specifically asked to Deddrie will be answered in comic form when I stop being really lazy and swamped with other things.  Woo.

  • I now live across the country from where I used to live.
  • I hate worms.  I don't know why.  Irrational phobia turned to utter disgust?  
  • I have three tattoos.  They are all on my back.  No, I won't post pictures here.
  • I have had around ten surgeries, all on my head.  This is because a couple were done twice.  Even the cosmetic ones were more to help the inside.  For example, my front teeth are implants.  As such, my idea of what I look like is a bit skewed.  I do not see imperfections where there is nothing wrong, but I do see what my actual skeletal structure looks like.  As odd as it sounds, I am self conscious of my skin, my hair line, and my bones.
  • In a perfect world, I would draw comics all day.  Someone else would ink and color them... and do the lettering.  I would write out the scripts and draw them in pencil.  That's it.  To be some kind of journalist or get a story published would also be nice.  Either way, neither of those are "Psychologist" by any means.  Still, that is what I am going to school for.  Hopefully I will help someone help him or herself at some point.
  • Back in the day, I was allergic to pretty much everything food related.  These days, it's really just tree nuts and chick peas.  Occasionally soy gives me issues.  As such, I have gained weight and this is a good thing.
  • My favorite candy flavors are grape and strawberry.
  • I have many favorite animals.  Shark, T-Rex, bats... especially those little fruit bats...  So cute!  Uh... Llamas.  Fuckin' love llamas and sheep.  I can't even explain.  Any kind of fat rodent also pleases me.  ...And fluffy cats.  I like fat things.  I don't know.
  • Deddrie is a comic strip type thing.  Donna Pierce is a comic book type thing that has no color or background yet.  Issue one is "done" besides that.  ...We'll see where that goes.  I have to write where it's going.  The pacing is... odd.  I had another idea at one point called "Duck U" about some cartoon ducks in college.  It was stupid.
  • As for stories, the ones I care about are the Gekman/Jedi series (there's like five or eight or something now...), Rise and Descent, Ugly Fish, Stitches, Cream, Beyond Skin, and Another Brick in the Wall. 
  • I have an older sister who lives with a few diagnosed mental illnesses.  She is almost eight years older than I am.  There was no middle child.
  • Worst physical habit?  I slouch.  Also, I scratch myself when freaked out.  I have a million bad mental habits though.  Too many to list off, really.
  • My favorite authors...  Robert Louis Stevenson, Hunter S. Thompson, Phillip K. Dick, Lewis Carroll, Glen Duncan, Neil Gaiman, Roald Dahl...  Too many to name.  
  • I won't even try to name off my favorite comic book writers.  ...Some characters though would be Dogwitch, Madman, The Creeper, Lenore, Evil Ernie, The Crow, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, Alucard, The Mask... and all the girls from Azumanga Diaoh.  There are so many others... but that'll do for now.
  • Favorite movie, honestly, is Beetlejuice.  I don't know why.  I really don't.  I think it's the stripes. 
  • I'm oddly obsessed with wide black and white stripes.  I find them sexy, I guess?

I'm all out of questions to answer.  SO!  If anyone reading this thinks of one, I'll go ahead and give you an answer.  ...In fact, it will probably be way more information than you wanted.  YAY!
