Randomness

From a discussion last night:

What's your genetic heritage?

Mine is a group of heavy-drinking bastards who apparently either took a lot of war brides or got REALLY drunk and had quite a few instances of "oh god, I slept with WHO?" because they really didn't like each other that much for the most part: Osage, Choctaw, Irish, German, and Swedish, with a sprinkling of French and Scots.

The amusing bit of this is that I apparently look VERY Greek. My given name is actually Greek in origin, so that's caused a bit of confusion. And my last name, pronunciation-wise, is most commonly associated with German, but it's actually an Ellis Island bastardization of my Irish family name. Go fig.

So, how about you? Share with the class! :)
