Tag, I’m it!

December 13, 2008

WiseGuy has tagged me!

The rules are:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about you.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end, and include links to their blogs.

In a rare turn of events, none of these facts will involve infertility.

1. When I was in college, I used to declare that it was wrong to do homework on Friday evenings. I have just spent my entire Friday evening doing work, which is the case almost every Friday unless DH and I decide to go out to dinner or unless we are out of town.

2. I’m not particularly vain, but I was fashion-conscious enough to wear dress shoes to work yesterday, not realizing that by the time I left work there would be an ice storm in progress. Walking to my car was a little treacherous, especially since I’d parked far away and then had to break through the sheet of ice that had enveloped my car.

3. People often remark how DH and I are a perfect match, yet on paper we have very little in common and we have very different personalities.

4. I love all sorts of puzzles, but I really prefer to do them alone rather than play either cooperative or competitive games with others.

5. On a related note, I’m not really a team player. As a child, I always did individual sports — cause or effect?

6. I’m a little jealous that my cat seems to like my husband a little more than she likes me.

7. I am all about inertia. I have a hard time stopping what I’m doing enough to move on to the next task. On weekends when I’m headed to pottery, I usually get out the door much later than I intend, leaving me less time than I’d like, then I don’t leave the studio until closing. Sometimes I can barely get myself to work; then, at the end of the day I can’t get myself to leave. I literally leave at 10pm or later on a regular basis because I’m so wrapped up in whatever I’m doing. Usually hunger is the biggest draw. That, and the knowledge that by the time I get home I can maybe get 7 hours of sleep before starting over the next day — except that due to my inertia, I can never make myself go to bed even when I’m tired.

Now you’re it!
Dora, who has already shared one random fact today that she ate M&Ms at 10am
Dr. Barreness, a new blogger who needs to be initiated into tagging
Gin and Tonic Extra Lime, who enjoyed WKRP as much as I did when she was a little girl
Green Eggs N Ham, who will never have any time for tags once her Ukulele arrives (days? weeks?) so it’s now or never
Sam, whose recent posts involving a bat’s untimely death and a photo of her husband’s arse were so interesting that I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with
Shinejil, who is laid up after stepping on a nail while putting up Christmas lights
Wishing4One, who may have some extra time to work on this tag during her 2WW — good luck!

  1. I almost added #6 to my list…. my cat is also a traitor.
