because it's all about meme

Got tagged by Rodney Koeneke to state five little-known facts:

1. Had a very brief career as a busker in Rouen, France.
2. Also had a very brief career as a karaoke star in Rouen, France.
3. Supported myself through college, in part (not briefly), as a rock-n-roll caterer ("rock" broadly defined to also include the likes of Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow, and Milli Vanilli)(and of course bands like White Snake).
4. In high school I was in Show Choir. We had to wear these horribly designed red dresses.
5. Fred (my pop) developed the VideoDisc with RCA (remember those?)--not to be confused with LaserDisc, which came later--VideoDisc had a stylus. One of my early childhood memories is watching King Kong on VideoDisc.
