True. I'm fond of most cheeses, and swiss is right up near the top of the list, especially for sandwiches.

The next poster does crossword puzzles in ink.

False, I speak nine languages fluently. Sorry, I speak nein languages fluently, my German coming through there.

The next poster once appeared as an extra in an episode of Star Trek, playing the part of an alien life form.

True - a Linnea calendar in our kitchen (scroll down here: http://www.linneadesign.com/calendar...sign-calendar/), and a National Cathedral calendar in our home office.

TNP always knows what day it is.

Oh, true, I'm neurotic about time and dates.

The Next Poster needs a morning cup o' joe before he/she realizes what "TNP" means.

False. They're taking up space in my father's attic (although I think he asked if he could sell/trash them and I agreed).

The next poster has more than one computer in his house, not counting cell phone.

True. Both my wife and I have a laptop, my daughter has one also but the screen doesn't work. Curse you Dell!


The next poster just realized that this thread has long outlasted the OP.

False, but I've had--still do, I think--an arrest warrant for jumping the turnstile ca. 1975 and never appearing in court.

TNP has shoplifted.

ETA: Oh, about OP....still false.

When I was a kid, I'm ashamed to admit, I did some minor shoplifting in my small town's only department store. Years later I sent the store more than enough money to cover my thefts.

TNP saw an old flame in the past month.

Yes, entering first VC round for a product three years in development. Web software, all hush-hush ().

TNP has sent back food at a restaurant, and not simply for being the wrong order served (the food).

I hate to be That Guy, but yes, a couple of times, when my steak was far too rare.

True--a sign language, American Sign Language. I yak all the time with neighbors, and one new friend especially, but still suck at catching rapid finger spelling.

TNP wishes he knew one language in particular.

True, many times. Sometimes for a few months, sometimes for a few days, sometimes just passing through.

So very true. I originally went to school for broadcasting/PR and didn't do anything in those fields, then got my Masters in IT Management and I am in neither IT nor management...

False. I'm sort of angry about not knowing squat about it, for many reasons, except I do know it relates to yellow journalism and Citizen Kane.

TNP has family who served in the US military or suffered as civilians overseas in WWII.

True. My father and uncles served during WWII; my Uncle Edward died fighting in Europe and my father was stationed in Korea at the end of the war.
