Some more stuff you didn't know

I was tagged by Nick the writerist to list eight things nobody knows about me.

So here goes.

1) I broke my middle finger in kindergarten when a desk I was sitting in fell over because I was trying to reach a black magic marker I dropped on the floor. I wore a giant cast on the finger. I kept sticking it up at people to show them until one kid told her mommy she was very upset because I kept giving her The Finger. That's how I found out that The Finger is bad.

2) Wyle E. Coyote is my favorite WB character because he never gives up and is actually a pretty humble and clever guy. I have a stuffed doll and two T-Shirts with his mug on them. I believe the Road Runner is a smug little bastard who must be destroyed.

3) My only regret in life is that I didn't take a job I was offered in high school to work at Quick Ten, an oil-changing place, where I could have learned about car repair. Instead I stayed at Boston Market where I was making a little bit more money. I'm not usually that short-sighted.

4) I have a tendency to turn myself into a foil for whoever I'm around. As in, the more upset you get the more I fall into a zenlike calm to counter what you're feeling. If you're calm I get hyper and can't stop talking. I just think I instinctively need to balance things out. Around shy people I'm outgoing. Around outgoing people I'm shy.

5) I only date dark-haired men.

6) I haven't ironed an item of clothing in three years.

7) I can't sew. Not even buttons. Thank goodness for Maggie.

8) I got a ticket for speeding two weeks after I got my license. Since then I have had literally a dozen warning tickets for various traffic violations but no actual citations.

Ok. I tag Maggie the seamstress
Just Me


  1. Someone already tagged you. Dammit. Well, I'm tagging you anyways. That's just how I roll.

  2. Two weeks ago I ironed for the first time in over 6 years. I hate ironing, too.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
