I'm a native New Yorker without the New York accent. Some people find that odd. 

I gave the Cedar Point roller coaster, Rougarou, it's name. 99% of people have no idea what that means, but I'll gladly regale you with the tale if you're interested in Bayou folklore. 

I once wrote and performed a poem when I was just 10 years old. It moved the whole room to tears. Sure, it was during my grandmother's funeral, but that poem was damn good.
