[Me] Damn Your Black Heart, Thomas!

So, Thomas infected me with an Internet meme. Because he's a bad person.
Here are the directions: Write 5 random facts about yourself, and then list the names of 5 people who you in turn infect.
  1. I've been homeless three times. Since then, I've gone to college and traveled half-way around the globe. Being homeless is a choice, and I chose to move on. This is why I won't give beggars my spare change anymore. Well, also because I'm just a bad person.
  2. A friend of my mother offered to buy me from her, when I was a baby. If you can understand that she was wealthy enough to afford to buy a baby, you might understand why I have never forgiven my mother for not selling me.
  3. I'm red-green colorblind, but my brain fills in whichever color it thinks something is. One time, I was walking around downtown Spokane with a friend, who pointed out a cherry red pickup truck, and commented on what an unusual color it was. Now, I've seen dozens of cherry red pickup trucks, so I thought it was unusual that he thought it was unusual, until he said that the truck was green. I looked again, and IT WAS GREEN. I expected red, so my brain made it red, until I was told otherwise. This is why, if you ask me what color grass is, I'm going to give you that condescending look. I'm color-blind, not retarded. Grass is blue, everyone knows that.
  4. I love to read, but I am, in fact, quite a slow reader. I have never been able to get over the habit of reading the words in an internal voice, so I can only read as fast as I speak. On the other hand, I have nearly perfect retention (at least, for things I have read), so I often only have to read something once. ^_^
  5. I suffer from high self esteem. I have a serious superiority complex. It's a problem.
Now, it would have been more fun if the meme were Write 5 random secrets about yourself. Who wants to go first? ^_^

As for this meme, the infection stops here. I'm not going to infect five other people, because I'm a killjoy wet-blanket who ruins the fun for everyone else. Basically, I'm just a bad person.
