Re: Me

Apparently I’ve been tagged for a meme. Which, yay, ’cause I wanted to write but have nothing to say!


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

Lordy. Just eight?

But eight I have to say in public?


The abridged version, then. Here goes.

1. HABIT: I scratch off my fingernail polish from the cuticles on up. I play with my hands when I’m trying not to talk/make eye contact/emote, so the nails tend to get annihilated as a casualty for my reticence.

2. FACT: I work harder on volunteer projects than I do on paid projects, although it’s hard to tell the difference. But there’s something about helping someone out who really needs it — and, let me clarify, who is worthy of it — that lights my fire more than anything. I guess it’s more that I would rather do what I want than what I must.

3. HABIT: I have a crystal hanging from my rearview mirror, and I always rub it to remove the stress from my body in traffic — it’s my worry stone. I’m so absentminded that I don’t realize it, but when I let a friend drive my car and he rubbed it, I was stunned that others noticed this compulsion.

4. HABIT: When I need to make a big decision, I have to head to a park for either a ride on the swingsets or to at least stare at a lake or something. Even if I spend five minutes there, I always feel rejuvenated and can uncover the resolution with a clear mind.

5. FACT: Same as Lachlan, I have some symmetry issues. I also share something in common with Mark Wahlberg, and it ain’t the big, ah, appendage we saw in “Boogie Nights.” 😉

6. FACT: I am a walking divergence. I’m insanely impatient some days but completely “enh — whatever” on others. I am decisive but I oftentimes decide against making a decision. 🙂 I am over-the-top passionate yet I can turn off that switch in zero-point-six seconds. I’ll either raise hell or kill you with kindness — and you’re never going to be able to predict my reaction, so don’t even try. Some days I’m the social butterfly, others I’m the caterpillar.

7. HABIT: I tend not to deal with things until they are in crisis mode. I try very hard to plan ahead, but so much other bullshit crops up in the interim that I let things slide until they can no longer be ignored. (Hey, no one ever said the habits had to be good or cute ones!)

8. FACT: I don’t get worked up into a lather about anything other than the opposite sex. I’m pretty even-keeled in general, but man, don’t hurt or disrespect me because I’ve been known to hit the gas pedal really hard when I see you walking across the street. I’ve only recently noticed this about myself and will work on it, but I’m quicker to say “fuck you” than I am to hang around to feel the need to have to say it again. But yeah, some folks are lucky that I have very good brakes!

Now I have to tag eight lucky people. But since this didn’t come with a “send this to eight people so you can have everlasting love, luck and happiness” schpiel, I’ll leave it to y’all who want to do it to, well, do it. But Mel? SilverBlue? I’m looking at you. … 😉
