Facts About Jessica!

Here are some things you may or may not know about me:

• My full birth name is/was 'Jessica Ruth Padkin-Taylor'. I sort of gradually dropped the Taylor over the years, but I plan on replacing it with something else eventually...

• I've never smoked a cigarette in my life.

• I have a (pretty rare, in the UK at least) microdermal piercing.

• I am a huge fan of Red Dwarf and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, to the extent that I honestly feel that they actually affected me growing up. However, I absolutely despise RD series 7 and 8 and the HHGG movie.

• Likewise, I am still (and probably always will be) a massive and downright obsessive Sonic the Hedgehog fan, despite the fact that I don't really like the new games.

• I have a scar on my head (obscured by my hair) from when my sister threw a bible(!) at me.

• I have frightful tinitus, thanks to years of listening to headphones at insane volume. Thankfully, I don't notice it most of the time.

• I had nine pictures printed in Sonic the Comic (as far as I know, more than anyone else!). They were all awful, and I stole the poses from Garfield comics for most of them...

• I like to name my computers. My current machine is called 'Bishop'.

• I absolutely have to vote in every election I can. I didn't vote in an European election once, and as a terrible consequence (in my mind, anyway) my MEP is(/was?) Robert Kilroy Silk. Since that day, I vowed I would never miss my chance to vote ever again.

• My birthday is the 5th of November, bonfire night. In my opinion, I could not have been born on a better date.

• I suffered from clinical depression for several years, for a time so badly that I had trouble leaving the house.

• I am fascinated by robots, and AI in general. I really, really hope that I live to see robots that can converse with human beings.

• The first video I ever owned was volume one of 'The Trap Door', the absolutely awesome claymation cartoon. The first film I ever owned was The Beatles' 'Yellow Submarine'.

• I really like cyber fashion. Some of my favourite designers are Futurstate, S.D.L., Cyberdog (I don't like some of the tacky new rave stuff, mind) and Lovebomb.

• I am sexually submissive. I used to think that this was something to be ashamed of, in a way, but I don't any more.

• I'm very liberal and I try to be a philanthropist but, God help me, I just generally find most people really annoying. =(

• Probably the first game I ever loved, I mean really loved, was the original Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back arcade game (I had the port they made for the Amstrad CPC 464, incidentally the first computer I ever owned). I still think this is an awesome game.

I'm very glad you took the time to share.

We seem to have a lot in common. (Not the cigarette thing, or the piercing thing, of course.)
Wow, I actually feel really informed from all this. :o There was so much I didn't know.

These fun facts to do. XD
Yay for fun facts! It was all really informative and interesting! ^^
I always found Bonfire Night an easy day to remember your birthday.

Did you notice this, as a side-thought... I know you just got your Sega thang going on, but Team 17 are after artists.

Just to pass on a snaffle of info.
i had the amiga version of the empire strikes back game (it's the 3d wireframe one, right?) twas great.

i think, excluding monsters/busses/other variables, you probably will live to see clever robots.
