Topic: Virgo mania! (13 msgs / 301 lines)
1) From: J. Zach Schiller
Ok, let me chime in.  My birthday was the 9th, and I got a Technivorm!
Well, I cobbled together the various contributions given to me as my gift
idea from friends and family but, being a virgo dammit, I wanted control
over the decision and the ordering of the machine!
It should certainly be no surprise to anyone that there are so many virgos
in this group!  We are very particular by nature, so it's just a matter of
time before we all came 'round to focusing that particularism on perfecting
our cups of coffee.
And yes, this is my professional, sociological perspective. Hee hee.
PS. Notice it wasn't me, the sociologist, who brought up Marx's theory of
the fetishism of commodities, nor me who took a thread and 'coded' it to
locate the 'satisfisers' and 'maximisers'!  This idea of you all being my
labrats is getting more and more intoxicating.... But not yet as
intoxicating as the brews I am making in my new Technivorm.

I wonder?
how many of these virgo's are left handed?
I am, though actually ambidextrous, I write and eat with my left hand.

I'm not a Virgo (Libra) but I am left-handed. September 
birthdays/left-handedness . . . Hmm.
Actually, I too am ambidextrous - anything that takes accuracy is 
left-hand, anything that takes power is right-hand (mostly).

Ok, I'm not a Virgo but Pisces.  But, my mom is a Virgo, and left handed at
that.  Now to throw another screw into it all; she has an identical twin
sister (obviously a Virgo) who is right handed!?
The commonality?  We all drink coffee :-)

Aha! Then your mother's sister isn't REALLY an identical twin!!!
(Seriously, my wife will be fascinated to hear this - she is very 
intrigued with identical twins and their little differences (genetics and all).

There's a theory that some left-right twin pairs are "mirror image" 
twins and not identicals, and that singleton lefties started out as 
twins.  My sister-in-law's family bears this out to some extent and was 
actually part of a study a couple of years ago:  SIL is a lefty with a 
right-handed "mirror" twin.  Their mother is right-handed with a 
left-handed "mirror" twin.  My niece (SIL's daughter) is a singleton 
lefty.  My nephews are "mirror" twins, one lefty, one righty.  There are 
other "mirrored" twins and single lefties in SIL's family too.  She has 
cousins who are mirrored twins, who in turn have a few singleton lefties 
and (between them) three sets of "mirrored" twins.
So maybe your uncles were going to be quads...

Not me.  My father and older sister (both passed on) were southpaws.  My 
mother (also passed on) and younger sister and myself are right handed.

Another left-handed Virgo here!  I also use my left hand for writing  
and other detail work, and my right hand for strength-oriented  
tasks.  However, I don't consider that to be ambidextrous, as I can't  
switch from one hand to the other for a particular job. Even then I'm  
a bit mixed up:  scissors, right hand, tennis racquet, left.    
Sometimes when I try something new I have to not think about which  
hand for a moment and just do what feels right--my brain seems to know.

13) From: Robert Gulley
Being able to play tennis with either hand has come in, well, "handy" 
more than once - especially for messing up someone's plans for a 
nasty backhand. For a few years I had trouble remembering which hand 
I played tennis with from year to year. Finally settled on my left. 
Ping Pong is really great with both hands!
