25 Random Things

Ok, ok, I'll do the facebook meme. I got tagged by a couple people, but I'm too lazy to tag anyone, and it is probably too late since the whole world has been tagged already.

You're supposed to write 25 random things that people don't already know about you. Dude, I have been blogging for almost 1000 posts just on THIS blog. What is there left?

1. I don't miss sex bad enough to do anything about it. Yet.

2. My favorite color is indigo.

3. My favorite place is the beach.

4. The scent of black pepper makes me weak in the knees.

5. I have only ever seen 2 tattoos I liked. One is on a regular reader. The other one I'm not telling so I can tell you that it is yours.

6. I'm also not big on the piercings. Sorry, kids.

7. I have a ridiculously sensitive sense of smell.

8. Which is too bad, because I fart a lot.

9. Sensitive hearing, too. Most movies seem WAY TOO LOUD.

10. So think how much fun I am in a club. Hoo boy. I'll be the one over in the corner, cringing.

11. I spend most of my time alone, yet almost never get lonely.

12. I have a rebellious streak a mile wide.

13. Group activities irritate me just by the mere fact that they are group activities.

14. I could eat the Oxford English Dictionary up with a spoon. It might take me a while, but I could.

15. Which reminds me - I think competitive eating contests are one of the most disgusting things on earth, for many reasons.

16. I want to go back to school but have no idea what my masters should be in. I will take suggestions.

17. I'm mostly a vegetarian because I don't like meat, not for any nobler purpose.

18. I get earworms really, really badly, so I am kind of afraid to listen to music. There's always the chance that what I listen to will end up in my head constantly for 6 months. Seriously.

19. I sleep badly from 3 to 5 am, but 5:30 to 7 is golden.

20. I have to get up for work at 5:30

21. It cracks me up when people pity me. They don't know what they are doing.

22. I love men with shaved legs. Vive la tour de France.

23. My one big regret is not learning to play a musical instrument.

24. One of my closest girlfriends and I talk about everything but men and relationships. It isn't a subject that comes up between us. Ever.

25. I think life is silly, but I like it that way.

i'm sorry i tagged you, but it was fun to get even more random (& interesting) facts about you!

super des said...

I'm going to assume #5 is about me since I am a regular reader and have tattoos. (So I'm the only one, right?) ;)

I've been resisting this meme for a while. We'll see if I can keep fighting it.

Mignon said...

Who the hell would pity you? You are great.

Lynnea said...

I love 13 and 14. What does it mean to be 'mostly' vegetarian? (chock my ignorance up to being a meat-eater, heh).

If I don't see the beach at least once in two years I start to get crazy in the head. But the minute that salty air hits me, I'm a new woman.

meno said...

I'm SO GLAD you like my tattoo. :)

thailandchani said...

I'm totally with you on #1 and 24.


Count Mockula said...

Sorry, ladies, I think it's MY tattoo. 'Cause it is the awesomest.

Anonymous said...

You owe us one because really? You thought we didn't know that the beach is your favorite place? Give us a little bit of credit here. P.S. I only comment anonymously because I lack the imagination to create my own online presence.

Issa said...

I can't stand the thought of those eating competitions. I've never understood why it's entertaining.

Ericka said...

i did the facebook meme, on facebook. have i mentioned that fb kind of creeps me out? a lot?

as if reading your blog wasn't clue enough, this thing proved it - we are quite similar in many ways. :-) just don't try to steal my corner in the club, 'cause i'm territorial too.

You kill me, it's official

You know I always wanted to learn to play the piano and a year ago my son said he wanted to learn, so both kids and I have been learning together -really peaceful and enjoyable for me, even though I won't be the next Mozart or anything and even though I know it's kind of silly - middle aged women at piano lessons, but oh well!

And I so agree that competitive eating is so gross on so many levels!

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Can I steal this from you?
I'll give you credit!
I ditto what Count Mockula said!


stinkypaw said...

Nice list! What was the regular reader's tattoo?

SUEB0B said...

Tracey - sure. It came from Facebook - Mar tagged me.

Stinkypaw - if I told whose tattoo I liked, I would offend all the other people. It is a secret!

Anonymous said...

So on #24 does that include "things that came out of your ass"? Although I suppose talking about it in private isn't the same as in the middle of a busy restaurant. Ew.

the queen said...

re #23, "I never learned to play a musical instrument" - I was on a cruise, so I might have missed something, but are you going to die? I started on the guitar at 43. Take care of #23 asap. (However, I'd start with the steel drum. I love those.)

JCK said...

Those eating contests gross me out, too.

What's up with the pity? I just don't see it.

Regarding the Master's degree, work backwards. Graduate degrees are highly overrated except as a means to an end. People with Master's and Doctoral degrees are no better, smarter, etc. than anyone else in general. Take my word for it, I am getting a PhD after working in the "real world" and I find the people around me to be pretty clueless. Academia really is out of touch with the real world. Many of the people couldn't make it in the real world. I come from a family of PhD's, and they are no better. If a Master's (or PhD, shudder) gets you to a job/career that you want, go for it. I think that things are changing with Wikipedia and other Internet resources as well as community colleges and technical schools. I think that traditional academia is becoming increasingly irrelevant, and more students and families will start waking up to the fact that there are better alternatives to the traditional ivory tower university.

Good luck!
