one bug after another

Just as I recover from one bug, Dr. Haddock infects me with a new one. Virtually speaking, of course.

The rules: Post 5 random and weird facts about yourself, then at the end, list the names of 5 people whom you in turn infect. Also, leave a post to these people letting them know they have been infected.

1. When I jump on a trampoline, my toes crack.

2. Board games, card games and jigsaw puzzles put me into a catatonic state.

3. When I was around 40 they told me I had three kidneys.

4. I officially changed my first name when I was 22.

5. I was in the choir and two musicals in high school even though I can't sing worth beans.

Weird and random enough?

As usual, I'm going to skip passing this on to specific people and just let you make up your own minds.

So what was your first name before age 22?

3 kidneys? Really can someone have 3? Maybe one just looked odd or they messed up in the xray?

Very odd facts for sure. I'm not so sure I could think of odd facts like yours.

My question exactly, why did you change your first name? What was it?
And my Mom has three kidneys as well, apparently, lots of people do. I guess I might as well...

3 kidneys? I have never heard of that. Maybe you can donate one? :)

Expat, katja - Why the name change? If I told you, I'd have to kill you. :-) Let's just say that my name and I didn't get along all that well.

James - apparently it's fairly common and know as "duplex kidney system" or something, where a regular kidney has a smaller one attached. If I'm ever strapped for cash I'll have to look into donating one. ;-)

My toes crack even when I'm not jumping on a trampoline. I tried changing my name when I was 21, but it only lasted about a week.

Oh yeah LOL you couldn't get any weirder!

Hey, that's funny, I officially changed my middle name when I was 22. I got rid of ho-hum "Lynn" and replaced it with my mother's more interesting maiden name. My mother seemed pretty happy about it.

Cathy - sometimes my ankles crack too - drives people nuts!

Tat - well, I suppose there's always room for improvement. :-)

Sandra - I turfed my first name completely and started using my middle name as my legal name so I don't have a middle name any more.
