Random Weirdness x7

Unfit Mother has tagged me to take part in this meme. Here are the rules:

  • Link to your tagger and post the rules. (Done.)
  • Share 7 facts about yourself, some random and some weird. (Oh, dear.)
  • Tag 7 people at the end of the post and list their names. (More work?)
  • Let them know they were tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs. (Seven comments in ONE DAY? What is this, a place of debauchery?)
Seven facts about myself. Hmmm.

Here's the problem: I am a very boring person. Facts about me are certain to be rather boring, especially if they are random and/or weird. Unfit Mother has no idea what she is unleashing upon you.

1. I am very picky about curtains. I searched several cities before I found the ones hanging in my living room. They have multicoloured stripes and are tab-top style. We then picked the wall colour to match the curtains.

2. At work today, I learned how to turn a playing card into a crack pipe.

3. I have had an elliptical exercise machine in my living room for the last four years, and I have wanted to get rid of it for almost all that time. Steve believes (wrongly) that we could sell it. I believe (correctly) that we should just bring it to the dump.

4. Today I weighed myself and measured my waist. I have gained four pounds but lost an inch since the last time I weighed and measured myself. I'm not sure what to make of this. Is it a success or a failure? Wait, this is me we're talking about. The smart money's on "failure".

5. I'm a huge Survivor fan. On Thursdays, I leave work before 5:30 so I can be home in time to watch the show. I order pizza so there's no cooking or cleaning to do. (Yay, Domino's!)

6. Although I tell people I'm from Newfoundland, I've now been living in Name of Town Withheld longer than I lived in that province.

7. I thought for a long time about who I should tag. In the end, I decided to tag some of the people who write blogs I read every day but haven't linked to over on the right.

By the way, I briefly considered tagging for shits and giggles a certain Canadian from Alberta - I mean, Toronto. I then realized that I don't want to have her name listed anywhere on my blog. For some people, any publicity is good publicity. I don't want to feed into to *that*.

delightfully weird you are megan
I'm trying to narrow it down to 7 and when I return from Toronto, I will complete the exercise

I'll give you fifty bucks for the elliptical if you drop it off at my house.

1. Curtains. What are curtains? As an army brat, I am still so programmed to moving that I don't bother hanging anything; curtains, pictures, art, myself...

6. I have lived in Portland (name not withheld) for as long as I lived in the south, but I am still a southerner. Especially when I drink whiskey=;?}

Thanks for being a good sport!
