Sally - maybe you should add an "Anything else to declare" clause. At
least it might yield some witty Oscar Wilde type responses.
OK, so I'll come out of the closet twice - as gay and as left-handed
(both of which terms I see as shorthand and inadequate references for
about where I can be found on a spectrum, and not as hermetic
categories). I've never *deliberately* swallowed a goldfish.
I encourage anyone who doesn't have a problem with disclosing this kind
of information to do so (especially all you straight right-handers!) so
that the impression created is as representative as possible.
Similarly, like Sally, I would be interested to hear from more women,
including thoughts about the male domination of the list.
