blog #233 >> I've been tagged! (again)

So without further ado... here are 25 random things about me.

1: I'm a rather random person. Except that I'm consistently random, which makes me pretty predictable.

2: I'm a very bad speller and I like to make up my own words. It's just I'm very imaginative and I can think of a lot of different ways to spell things.

3: I can't walk in high heel shoes... at all.

4. I love foggy mornings! They make me want to go outside and take a long walk.

5: I don't like to wear socks... unless it's really cold and the socks are knee high.

6: I love to wash dishes... even still after all these months of washing dishes by hand, I love it. I think it's the warm water, which would also explain the forty-five minute morning showers. It's like hitting the snooze only better. It's a good thing hot water is included in the rent, or I'd be broke. I single handedly use more than a family of eight.

7: I wish I had been born fifty years earlier. They had such stylish clothing and glasses, better television, cooler cars. And I wouldn't ever have to curse at the fax machine or be laughed at for typing a letter again.

8: When I get stressed I need to walk. And if I can't go anywhere, I just pace. I know I say I need coffee, but notice I don't go to the coffee shop around the corner. Nope, I go to the other one about twelve blocks down. And note, I rarely get coffee. Last time I was really stressed, I walked all the way to Pix on Division. I felt a lot better when I got back, and I think the chocolate tort helped as well.

9: I've always had curly hair, and when I was little I hated it. I can't imagine what I would look like now without it. But when I was six, I would have gladly traded it. I cried every time I had to brush it. I also hated it when people would come up to me and pull it to watch it spring back up. Surprisingly, people (even strangers) still do this. And not surprisingly I still find it annoying... so please don't pull my hair.

10: I almost always have a rock in my pocket... and hence in my laundry.

11: I drink a gallon of milk a week, by myself.

12: I only have one pet. A Venus fly trap named Vinnie. I fed him a fly once, and felt so bad for the fly, that poor Vinnie has had to fend for himself ever since. Either he's in winter hibernation right now, or he's dying. I can never tell the difference. I guess I'll know this spring.... Actually, he's kinda a boring pet.

13: I'm not superstitious about chain letters and therefore I'm not going to tag 25 more people. Plus I don't know 25 more people to tag. I'm also not superstitious about the number 13.

14: But if I find a penny I always pick it up. "Find a penny, pick it up. All day long you'll have good luck."

15: I also have a collection of fortune cookie fortunes. I'll even go up to a stranger's table after they leave and collect their fortunes. I love some of the things they say.

16: Actually, I have a lot of collections. In fact I've such a large collection of tea cups and coffee mugs that they've spread into every room of my apartment. Now I use them as organizers. I have some in the bathroom with cotton balls and Q-tips. And I've got some in my desk for paper clips. And I've got some for thread, and hair clips and all sorts of things. I can't open a drawer it seems without finding a tea cup inside.

17: I wish I owned a robot. I'd name him Mr. Atomic and I'd love him and always take good care of him.

18: I love getting mail, but not junk mail... or bills... and I actually don't get much else besides... I need to start writing more letters.

19: I'm running out of ideas. I don't know if I can think of 25 things.

20: I have a red plastic lobster in my bathroom cabinet for no particular reason. Actually, I've always wanted a lobster for a pet too.

21: Each and every one of my teeth has a filling.

22: I never wear shorts no matter how hot it is. I'm always cold, and I prefer the girliness of skirts.

23: I've never understood the principles of competitive sports. I just don't get it. Why run around and spend all your energy? Is there a life threatening emergency? No. Is there a bear chasing you? No. Do you get anything when your done? No, you're just really tired. It baffles me.

24: I love to sleep, but I don't like naps. I'll only take one if I'm sick.

25: Is that it? Did I make it to 25? Close enough. Sleep sounds so nice right now. I think I'll go to bed.
