7 Random Things About Me

Sam over at Sam's Book Blog has tagged me for a fun little meme. This one's been going around for a while now, and I've never done it, so I'm kinda excited! Here we go:

  1. I hoard candy. I have a lot of willpower, especially when it comes to chocolate. I can make a bag of mini Dove bars last a month, if no one else touches it. Unfortunately, I'm the only one in the family who can do this, so I end up scarfing it down so I get my share.
  2. I often say the long version of words. For example: ink pen, television, and refrigerator instead of pen, tv, and fridge. A certain friend of mine likes to make fun of me for it.
  3. I don't really like to watch movies. I like having SEEN movies, but I don't like to give up the time it takes to watch them. Even if I'm sitting here in front of the tv anyway, I don't like to watch a movie, in particular, movies I have not seen.
  4. I can't stand to have a fan blowing on me for no reason. It's ok if I've been working out, or if it's 98 degrees or something, but I dislike having a fan on me just for the breeze. My husband loves it. I don't like the ceiling fan on high, but I'm learning to like it on low. This is not true if it's 85 in the house and we're trying not to use the air conditioner (see? long version), but otherwise, no fans.
  5. I don't like to make phone calls. This makes my job particularly difficult at times. I don't even like calling people with GOOD news. I think this is largely because my first boyfriend LOVED to put other people on the phone and have them pretend to be him so that I never knew who I was talking to. If you call me, identify yourself. I am very bad at identifying voices, don't assume I know who you are.
  6. I went to a boarding school for my junior and senior years of high school. I LOVED it.
  7. I met my husband online. We both played a MMORPG called EverQuest. After knowing him for 3 years, I moved across the country to live with him. That was the first, and last, online game I ever really played. Sometimes I feel very nostalgic for it.
Now I'm supposed to tag some of you. I pick Gina at Bitty and the Boy, The Shiba, Mo at Un-Mainsteam Mom Reads, and Ti at Book Chatter and other stuff.... I checked, and I don't think any of you have done it.

  1. I hate fans blowing on me as well--hate it! Something about the feel of air blowing on my skin is very uncomfortable to me... I've been tagged a few times for this one but haven't gotten around to it yet.

  2. You did six random things twice, or I'd have tagged you for this one too!

  3. LOL! I'm not a fan of watching movies either and usually read a book while one is on. Drives my fiance nuts :) I will watch a movie though if it the characters draw me into the movie but it is rare.

  4. Did you go to ASMS? My nephew did. He graduated in 2000. I don't like having a fan on me either.

  5. I did go to ASMS. I was in the first graduating class- 1993.

  6. I don't dislike watching movies...just watching them at the theater, People with cell phones open and flashing and people chattering ruin the experience for me, so I end up waiting for the DVD.

    I did the meme at my blog:

  7. Soon I won't have any more random things about me to share!!

  8. I say the full version of words as well. I say "That is not" instead of "that isn't". I was once told in high school that I sounded too proper.

    Here's my post:

  9. That is so cool that you went to ASMS! I will have to tell my nephew about your blog.

  10. I'm not a fan of making phone calls either, even returning them, which doesn't exactly make me the most popular person sometimes (unless it's work related, which I do because I have to). It's best to e-mail me if you want a quick response.
