I grew up lefthanded, but very much ambidextrous (knit righthanded, but 
can't crochet that way to save my life--it doesn't _feel_ right), I pitch 
and throw lefthanded, but bat righthanded, shoot right handed (think I have 
a cross-dominant eye), shoot pool either hand depending on where the ball 
is, am mediocre either way, and golf/putt right-handed. I computer-mouse 
either way, same for 10 key (but on time trials I 10-key right handed, since 
I don't have to drop the pencil to write the results down, those 
microseconds can really help). My dad, me, and my daughter Cathy all ate 
lefthanded, which made things exciting for Nana arranging us at her dinner 
table for Thanksgiving, though she cheated by having Dad at the head of it 
to carve.

As for hair, my hair was really straight (mixed hair--both thick black hairs 
and thin red ones) till I was 40, and then began to curl. Now I have two 
kinds of white hair, straight and curly (and only six weeks after my last 
crop/photoshop session, I have a little white skunk line down the middle of 
my hair)
