June 20 07

i was tagged by the smokin’ hot sam over at temporarily me to do the 8 random things about me meme. But, since i’ve already done the 6 weird things one, i decided to steal borrow an idea from Vodkarella, formerly of Troll Baby (and, ps, she’s equally smokin hot). so, i now present you with eight things about me. some are true. some are not. it’s up to you to figure out which are truths and which are lies….you up for the challenge?

1. my older brother and i once got kicked out of the Beverly Hills Hotel for dancing the roger rabbit in the lobby.

2. my favorite food of all time is Indian. I almost always choose it over anything.

3. i cannot sleep in socks. or with a blanket. or even with a pillow. and i can only sleep in a tanktop and shorts – no pajamas for me. i like for nothing to be touching me while i’m sleeping, including my husband.

4. while i consider myself an indie-rock fan, i can appreciate almost all types of music. opera. country. jazz. in fact, one of my all-time favorite songs is “He Went to Paris” by Jimmy Buffett.

5. i always leave the spare change in the washer until it adds up to more than a dollar. and then i take the money and buy coffee.

6. I once tried out for the Jeopardy Teen Tournament. I got to travel to Minneapolis to take a written qualifying exam. Needless to say, i didn’t qualify.

7. i hate making left turns. i hate them so much that sometimes i’ll drive all the way around the block just to avoid the turn.

8. my family is like the mini-UN. a have a sibling who is agnostic, a sibling who is pentecostal, and a sibling who just graduated from Yeshiva University.

    2 F

    I never win anything :)

    PS – I’m originally from north of Merrill. That’s why I said I was “disturbed” when I figured my driving time. Unless L. Superior is considered Canada!!!

  16. I can’t get them all, but I have a feeling the Jeopardy one is true and the Indian food one is false! :)

  17. Ok, since you asked for it, here goes:

    1) True (but thats only because I cheated and read today’s post first)
    2) False – don’t peg you as an Indian food lover, though Wendi would be sad if you’re not. It’s her favorite.
    3) False – I think you might like to snuggle. LOL
    4) True. I dig your taste in music so I assume you’re like me and respect and enjoy other types of music other than “your favorite”
    5) False. At least I hope so. Leaving change in the washer is a bad idea. I had Earl the repair guy (that was his name, I swear.. lol)to my old house twice cause I washed a penny and a bobby pin and it got caught. One cent cost me 78 big ones.
    6) True. I am obsessed with Jeopardy. Charlotte knows when the music comes on, it’s time to get in her jammies and get her bottle. The do-do-doo music comes on and she says “babo mama, babo” lol. I envy you if you actually got to try out. They’ve never called me back despite registering a bunchof times.
    7)True. Left turns suck. You can’t really even make them in Jersey. There are “jughandles” everywhere.
    8)True. Aren’t most families all over the place now?

    Ok, this was fun! I should do this one day…
