More Random Stuff

I got tagged by these two crazies. Is that tag-teamed tagging?

The rules:
-Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
-People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
-At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
-Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

  1. Did you know that figuring out random things about yourself gets harder and harder? Okay, seriously... When I was 15, my best friend moved in with my family. Her mom treated her really poorly and my parents petitioned the court for custody of her. She lived with us until we went to college. Unfortunately, I don't see or talk to her too much anymore. I am convicted though that someday The Targo and I will have foster children.
  2. Last night, I dropped one of our brand new plates on my pinkie toe. The plate shattered and my toe is purple. If it's broken, this is like, the twentieth time I've broken a bone.
  3. I live for the snooze button. My alarm goes off the first time at 5:20. Then New Cat gets in my face and licks me. Then my snooze goes off again. Then New Cat comes and has a one-sided conversation with me. Then my snooze goes off again. Then New Cat decides to chase Mystic. I throw one of my pillows at him and have to finally get up. Snooze rocks.
  4. I used to live on the near west side of Chicago. For those of you who haven't been here, it's where the real Cook County Hospital (not the one on ER) and the United Center (the Bulls' stadium) are. At least once a week, some random dude would stop me on the street and offer me a ride. I'm not sure if this says something bad about me and the way I dress, or what. Regardless, it's creepy. When I lived in a different north side neighborhood, I was repeatedly asked for directions to the methadone clinic. I still wonder why they thought I would know.
  5. My favorite books are either chick-lit or thrillers. Is it strange to constantly read things about people falling in love or getting hacked up? I think it's weird. Maybe I'm growing up because my horror threshold is decreasing.
  6. I used to read a lot of political blogs, from both ends of the spectrum. I didn't have any favorites because they all made me mad. Now, I prefer reading what you lovely wummins have to say. It's much more fun and better for my blood pressure.
  7. I cry at the drop of the hat. Not like "cry baby" crying, but I'm easily moved. Every time I've seen a preview for "Akeelah and the Bee"... oh jeez. Well, it's just not pretty. (Did anyone see that movie? Sadly, I haven't ... I just can't get past the previews.)
  8. I saw the Dave Matthews Band in concert a couple times. The last show I saw, I think I was 26 or 27. I didn't think I was "too old" until I realized the beer line was only four people deep. I think the last concert I went to was the Rolling Stones. I definitely was not the oldest person at that one.

Ok... here's the deal... I don't know 8 people to tag. So, consider yourself tagged, interweb. Oh and... go read Sarah and Nicole's responses. They're funny.

I love that you switched from DMB to the Rolling Stones. You're guaranteed not to feel old at a Stones concert... until their contemporaries start dying off!

Nicole P. said...

Uh, if you are "convicted" then you won't be getting any foster children. Just sayin'


Marianne said...

Good point. I'm dedicated? Eh... whatever. I'm not a con! I swear!

One of the two crazies, huh? LOL! Love DMB - have seen them in concert twice. I also read a combo of historical fiction, historical romance (I know, I know), and murder mysteries. Huh? Yeah, I know. ;)

The snooze button? Is love. I think I need to marry it. :)
