Over at Attentive Aphorist, themom tagged me on this meme.
Now, this may seem VERY similar to yesterday's meme. But, look carefully at line 3:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.
3 states to write six RANDOM things about (my)self. In yesterdays blog, #3 states to "share six non-important things/habits/quirks about (my)self". Okay, perhaps you could easily interpret them to be the same thing, but they are not. Yesterday, I listed "things/habits/quirks". Today, I will list "random" things.
1. I have a dry scalp. Back in high school and college - my punk grrrl days - I wore a lot of black. I finally realized that walking around with my shoulders coated in what appeared to be a breaded veal cutlet really wasn't all that hot. I do use the dry scalp shampoo, but I also avoid wearing dark shirts.
2. I really, truly do love our home. It's not the Taj Mahal, but it feels safe and it's big enough for all of us to find our own space when needed. We've also done quite a bit of remodeling in the (nearly) five years we've lived here, so I feel comfortable when I look around. The Evil Twin leaves lots of decision making up to me - but that's because he knows I have a tendency to lean towards masculine decor and he knows I'm not about to bust out all "country goose" on him.
3. If I'm interested in something, I can research it to within an inch of its' life. I love research.
4. I've never been big on sweets, but when I was pregnant with Sissy, I bought a bag of Halloween-size Snickers every time I went to the store. I couldn't get enough of them.
5. When I was in college, I had one course I hated. I "borrowed" a paper from a friend - who had received a B on his paper from the same instructor. I changed only the name and a few words and turned it in. I got a C. Proof positive that, sometimes, grading is purely arbitrary. I will hate that teacher until the day I die - not because I got a C, but because her job is to be objective and not grade on feelings. (Update: I know what I did was wrong and it was the only time I did anything like this in my entire "5 year plan" college education - I really wanted to prove a point more than cheat. I wanted to prove she picked favorites. I think I did that).
6. January 15th was the 4th anniversary of the Evil Twin quitting smokes. I'm immensely proud of him for sticking to his guns. I know he still craves the cigs, but he's much stronger than they are! I'll forever be in awe of his willpower. Happy No Cig Anniversary, Honey. :-)
And just like that, *poof* I'm finished.
I'm outta here.
