    A bottle of 10,000 IU capsules arrived today

    I was there as part of a motorbike for a charity that helps children affected by the nuclear accident - the town itself (Prypiat) is so far gone now that parts of it didn't have much 'feel' left to them - it was like walking through a construction site. 25 years of neglect, vandalism and looting will do that! Some places were amazing - there was an old motoring store still with stock there, and a hotel that was crumbling away. I broke off from the tour and had a look around some old houses - that was eerie.

    Nice job on the tooth care, nameless

    Oh, crap. This is going to be odd.

    1. I'm the 2nd oldest person doing my job in the entire state.
    2. I'm a soprano, but I usually sing alto because I sight-read music so well.
    3. I also have played violin, bassoon and glockenspiel.
    4. At about age 10, I discovered a dead body (my mom's best friend's son committed suicide) but didn't find out until I was in my 30s when my mom brought it up and I had no clue what she was talking about.
    5. I've had 7 concussions, 5 of them before I was a teenager and 2 as an adult, and all but one knocking me out completely.
    6. I once tried out for cheerleader in a torn Iron Maiden tee and a chain belt just to be obnoxious (I don't cheer).
    7. I'm double jointed and didn't know until my doctor told me a few months ago at the age of 48.
    8. I don't try to, but if I'm around someone with an accent, I'll pick it up as my own.
    9. I can touch my tongue to my nose.
    10. I collect vintage sheet music, with my favorites being from the WWI era and earlier.

    What the hell, I'll play along

    1) I also have no depth perception due to multiple retina detachments (damn lucky I can see anything)
    2) I'm adopted
    3) I was 5 days old when I was adopted and have had no desire to track down my birth parents. The couple that raised me are my mom and dad
    4) I have tinnitus that is permanent and due to a combination of sirens from when I was a paramedic, too many rock concerts and too much loud music on my headphones
    5) I still listen to heavy metal, by headphones and too loud
    6) I have done radiation monitoring in a former Soviet Union nuclear weapons test zone
    7) I miss running trauma as a paramedic, was way too much fun. Well, for me anyway, maybe not my patients
    8) I used to have a 59 Caddie hearse, all original and was fun to take to the drive in movies
    9) I love to hang out in graveyards
    10) I was goth before anyone, including myself, knew what goth was
