Seven Random Facts

Since it's an odd, random thing, I've decided to reply to Moominlight's open invitation to the Seven Random Facts meme. I'm sure everyone knows by now that I am a traveling artist, have been (briefly) inside the Palace of Madmen, have a habit of getting into tight spots with unusual menus, and use parentheses and semicolons more than is healthy, so here are seven other random facts:

1. I have never eaten chocolate I didn't like. (Perfectly good chocolate that happens to have things I don't like in it, such as licqeurs and peanut butter, doesn't count. It's not the chocolate's fault.)

2. I inherited the Shapeshifter's Curse from some extremely distant ancestor, but I enjoy it most of the time.

3. Many people make chains out of paper clips. Since many people do that, I make chains out of used staples.

4. I pick up a rock everywhere I go (everywhere that has rocks, anyway. Not swamps). A pretty rock. I can't resist. Unfortunately, I can't carry them all with me, so I have to leave the least pretty ones behind every so often. This is very sad and will probably drive geologists mad in a few thousand years.

5. I have actually received an actual real compliment from one of my two favorite artists* (the one who's still alive).

6. I am currently reading 23 comic series (comic books, graphic novels, webcomics, whatever you want to call them).

7. I draw a map of every place I stay, even if it's only for one night. I know, drawing maps is a sign of insanity and futile as well, but I like doing it.

Like Moominlight, I'm not tagging anyone with this; all the bloggers I know well enough have already done it. I also simply leave this open to anyone who would like to try.

*(Or, at least, the two artists who come to mind first when someone asks me who my favorite artist is. That's as close as I can get. I have dozens of favorite artists; asking me to narrow them down by actually thinking about it would be useless. It's almost as bad as trying to pick a favorite author. Almost, but not quite.)
