Full or Partial Disclosure, Who Are You?

Don - August 18, 2006

First, a big Nine Moons welcome to Seth. On his welcome page several commenters revealed a bit about themselves which I found very interesting.

I pick up bits and pieces as I read people’s comments but really don’t know everyone very well. Maybe everyone perfers it that way…there is something to be said about making comments and remaining anonymous.

For those of us who would like to know more and don’t care if you know us, I’ll start.

First, I’m Rusty’s “Darth Vader”. I grew up in Seattle but have lived in Spokane since 1970. Served a mission in England – late 60′s, graduated BYU. I have owned and do own several businesses including a movie theater in Orem, a “Fit Over 40″ health club and 2 bridal stores. (Sounds impressive but we are so far in debt we have to look up to see bottom).

Ok, anyone else?


  1. My name is Connor, and I like string cheese.

  2. My name is Hal Heywood. I’m new to reading blogs and am not really sure how to use that word correctly (e.g. “today I blogged for awhile”??) but have really come to enjoy it. Served a mission in Japan 1975-1977, and work for the Church Educational System in southern California (I read blogs while eating lunch). I own no business, am over 40 but not overly fit, and like string cheese, too. 6 kids, 3 grandchildren, 1 wife, happily married.

  3. I don’t make too many comments, mostly lurk over lunch and such. My name is John Scherer. I live in Ohio. I’m a convert, happily married, four kids under ten. I work as a Metallurigcal Engineer, which is what I studied in school.

    I like Jello cups from Aldi’s with little pieces of fruit in them.

  4. I am John Cline. I did a guest blog on Mormon art here at NineMoons a while ago. I’ve found Nine Moons to be the best Mormon blog around.

    I live in TN and teach art at a university, make picture frames until I can find a better way to pay the bills, and also make my own paint using an old Medieval recipe.

    I’m married, three kids.

  5. Making your own paint with a medieval recipe sounds like a good way to accidentally poison yourself to death.

  6. My name is Stan. If Don is Rusty’s Darth then that makes me his Owen Lars. Only Bret will get that and I had to Google it myself. That’s uncle for all you non-geeks.

    I too am new to viewing or responding to blogs.

    In one life I grew up and graduated from High School in Idaho. In another I served a mission in Brazil. In another I got an engineering degree from BYU. In another I lived in Rochester, NY and worked for Xerox, where I still work but most recently in Portland, OR. A mini-life in there took me and my family to London, which, by the way, is the only place Rusty has voluntarily visited me (I wonder why?). I’m not sure if your lives compartmentalize like this but mine sure seems to. I haven’t even mentioned the married-but-no-kids-yet (4yrs) vs married-with-kids (9yrs) lives, which for people like Don the former was what, 9 months? Or was that eight?

  7. Welcome Uncle Owen!

    We’ll let you stay and chat as long as you let me get off this rock and go to the academy soon.

    Comment by Bret — August 20, 2006 @ 9:10 pm

  8. Hello, everyone. Call me Leia. I’m not actually Rusty’s twin, but I am his sister (18 mo. older). I remember playing with those little Star Wars action figures as a kid with Russ, but the only reason I know who Owen Lars is w/o Googling it is because my 5-year old son and 3-year old daughter go around playing Anakin and Padme every day. Their 1-year old brother is often assigned the non-(English)speaking role of R2D2.

    We just moved from Iowa (where my husband did dental school) to Buffalo, NY (where he is now doing an orthodontic residency). Thanks for taking off on us, Stan.

    I served in Honduras at the same time Rusty was next door in Guatemala. I met my husband on a blind date at BYU 8 years ago, graduated in Humanities/Music, and now teach piano lessons.

    I don’t comment much here because…well, take this comment for example. I have been interrupted at least 11 times and it has consequently taken me a total of 53 minutes to compose a couple of semi-cohesive paragraphs. Oh well. For now, I rather enjoy spending my days playing army guys on the floor, coloring in (and out of) the lines, exploring local parks and zoos, and making sailboats out of apple slices and cheese triangles on toothpicks.

  9. So, if Amy is Leia, then who am I? (I expect Bret to come up with a great answer for this question!)

    I am Rusty’s other sister (there are 3 of us) who used to beat up on him when we were younger. I’m glad we are friends now. I usually just read over the blogs when I have a few spare minutes. I rarely make comments for no other reason than what I say/think isn’t that important and/or has already been mentioned.

    I served my mission stateside (the Field of Dreams was in my mission boundries…for all those movie fanatics) and I graduated from BYU WITHOUT the MRS degree. I’m the only daughter in the family that didn’t get married from a blind date.

    My husband just started his carreer as an Invasive Cardiovascular Specialist last month and as a result we moved across the country from WA to North Carolina. We have two little boys (5 and 3) and are expecting our third child after Christmas of this year (hoping for that girl.)

    I have lots of hobbies but won’t mention them here. I am very grateful for the family I come from…that there is such diversity in personalites yet we all seem to love each other and get a long…well, most of the time.

    I like rice krispi treats and white cake with white frosting.

  10. My name is Kristen J and I’m a chocoholic. I am also apart of the federation and come from the planet/blog New Cool Thang.

    I grew up in Tacoma, Wa but now reside in AZ with the husband and kids.

    When my husband started blogging I thought he was kind of a weird freak but after he persuaded me to read of few blogs from the bloggernacle, 9 Moons being one of them, I too became a weird freak.

  11. My name is Lisa. I like cheese and jam sandwiches, pee wee’s playhouse, and mercilessly yanking weeds from soft wet earth. I love pansies and Mucha and Tom Robbins. I like to wear tiaras and/or kitty ears while vacuuming. I hate sticky doorknobs and the smell of microwave popcorn (the smell of real popcorn permiates heaven).

    Comment by fMhLisa — August 21, 2006 @ 11:26 pm

  12. Did you say you ‘wear kitty ears while vacuuming’? Hmmm…

    Comment by Hal H. — August 23, 2006 @ 10:35 am

  13. At least it’s not bunny ears.

    Comment by Seth R. — August 23, 2006 @ 10:52 am

  14. Hi. I love 9 Moons and many of the other blogs that are part of the Bloggernacle. I found these wonderful blogs about a year and a half ago. I wish I’d found them sooner.

    I am married and have 2 super-cute children in second grade and kindergarten. I’m originally from the SF Bay Area and call that my home, but I’ve also been living overseas for about 15 years, and am currently teaching science in SE Asia.

    I am fuelled by good-quality dark chocolate and pizza. My guiltiest pleasure is to eat candy while reading People magazine. I think I’ll start wearing tiaras while vacuuming.
