Things you never wanted to know about me

Sarah Ashlee has tagged me!

Rules (shamelessly copied and pasted from her blog) are:

  • Players start with 7 random facts/habits about themselves.

  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog posts with their 7 things as well as these rules.

  • You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog.

  • Remember to leave a comment for them letting them know they have been tagged and to read your blog.

So here's my list of seven random things about me.

1. My memory about random things people do/say is uncanny. I was travelling to Michigan for work with a group of colleagues for an extended amount of time and we discovered that I remembered what everyone ordered at the restaurants we frequented.

2. I had no interest in having children until I turned 30.

3. I'm generally not afraid of the creepy-crawly things that make most females shriek. Snakes, worms, spiders, bees....none of these creatures really bother me. The only bugs I can think of that freak me out are centipedes.

4. I've never lived by myself. I went from home to dorm to roomates to boyfriend/spousal unit.

5. President Clinton spoke at my college campus while campaigning for his first term in office. I attended the speech and accidentally happened upon the meet-and-greet line afterwards. Though he was shaking hands with the small child in front of me, he looked me square in the eye and smiled. I thought I was special...who knew?

6. I'm an animal lover, but I detest ferrets. Blame some of those aforementioned roommates for that one.

7. My dream career is to be a stand-up comic. I love to make people laugh.

I know that all the cool kids have already done this meme, so there aren't too many left for me to tag. But if Rhet, PrettyRandomThoughts, Tanya Espanya, and BeckEye haven't done this one're it.

I guess it is official now then, I'm not one of the cool kids.

I'll get VD to do one on Wednesday.
BP abhors the number 7. He is monosyllabic in his speech so counting from one to ten always meant missing seven.

Rhet - I'm not either. Nerds unite!

Looking forward to VD's take.

My buddies sis has ferrets and The Wifey always refers to them as "rats" it amuses us all except the sis and centipedes are nasty.

Tanya Espanya said...

I've already done this but since I'm completely self-obsessed I will do it again! Thank you Slave for crushing me with your love!

I think ferrets are kind of cute. I think Paris Hilton had one. Maybe if you saved it from her evil clutches you would start to like them.

Cat - I've been around rats and ferrets and I think I actually prefer rats. They smell better. And I was playing outside as a kid and discovered a centipede running up my arm. Horrifying!

Tanya - any time milove!

Chel - they're cute to look at on television and even visit for an hour or so, but not fun to live with. Little bastard named Jinx used to bite my feet and hide up inside my couch.

I thought it was a kinkajou that Paris had?

Oh, maybe it was. They all look like rats to me. :)
