Five things you never knew about me - Crystal Coex

Crystal CoexI was surprised to see Ed Brill tag me for a foolish game some are playing these day.  I would have ignored it, but my boss said it wouldn't do to annoy such a prominent and important IBMer as Ed Brill, so here goes...

1) My first boyfriend was a German exchange student named Friedrich, who introduced me to the pleasures of philosophy (although there were other, bigger, pleasures that left me with a long term affection for Germans)

2) I never played an instrument in high school, but I played with a few guys who played instruments.  What they say about tuba players is absolutely true!

3) You may have read that my "petite" ex-husband paid to "enhance my assets", but he didn't tell you that he has tried many, many e-mail offers to enhance his own assets... and should really get a refund from all of them.

4) He doesn't know it, but I knew my co-worker, Mike Midas, when he worked in a video store and had horrible acne.  I looked... different... then, and he never paid any attention to me.  Now he pays too much attention.  Sigh!

5) As in the picture below, I sometimes like to go outside bare with just leather underthings on...

I won't tag anyone, as I have better things to do.  (I would tag my ex-husband, Duffbert, but I don't want to get that close ever again)

LOL. I guess one of the things I should have put on my list is that I play tuba. 4 years in high school.

And the saying goes for bass players, too. :)

The saying that they are trying to compensate for something? ;-D

@Nathan - Nice try. Keep your pants zipped.

@Chris - At that age, the compensation was worth it.

@Wild Bill - Promising name. Any German ancestors?
