8 Random Facts/Habits About Me

Ginny over at Blogula Rasa tagged me for this meme. Good timing, since I’m a little thin on blog subjects at the moment.

  • We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them each a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

And here are my facts and habits.

  1. Fact: I dislike having things touch the sides of my neck and I get antsy and uncomfortable if I’m wearing something that constricts in the wrong place. As a result, I wear v-neck shirts and my crewnecks get surgery. Strangely enough, turtlenecks don’t usually bother me.
  2. Fact: My wedding ring cost $59.95 at David Weiss Jewelers in Pittsburgh in 1989. If my fingers were more feminine, I could have saved $10. I probably would have bought a pizza with the savings.
  3. Habit: Nearly every morning at 8 am, I take a mug of coffee into the bedroom to wake Tod. He needs the caffeine and the prompting to get moving. We sit together and talk for a few minutes before the day proceeds . It’s an enjoyable ritual.
  4. Habit: I bite my fingernails. Not down to the quick, but I use my teeth to keep them at a manageable length. I’ve determined that it’s absolutely impossible to stop and no longer have any desire to try. I’ll take this habit to the grave, thank you very much.
  5. Fact: Now that I’ve stopped eating cheese and dairy products, I fart less. I know you were interested in that. I had no idea that dairy could do that to a person; I’m glad I stopped eating it. My skin’s nicer, too, but that could be an increased consumption of antioxidant fruits & vegetables.
  6. Fact: The doctors told my mother I’d be an Aquarius, but I came out an Aries. With my April 1 birthday, I’m still trying to decide if that fact is a joke my parents played on me for all these years.
  7. Fact: I make some of my own clothes but only the easy ones like skirts, drawstring pants and simple tops. I love designing my own patterns, but find the actual sewing frustrating if it is too fussy.
  8. Habit: I can’t pass a realty office without stopping to look at the floor plans in the windows. I’m fascinated with spaces and rooms. From my observations, I’m getting a good education in what makes Tokyo real estate pricey (aside from market fluctuations) and how you can save money.

Now who is going to get tagged? Nobody, because I hate doing that to people. However, feel free to snag the idea for your own blog if you wish. It’s rather fun to think of 8 random facts you will share with your readers. I thought of a lot of facts that I wouldn’t share, too.
