Infected and Unmotivated

First of all, Haddock left a comment that I had been infected and should go see his blog. His blog entry started off with a doctor’s appointment. I was waiting for the “…now everyone I’ve met in a the last six months must stay at home until the incubation period is over.” I think this is cruel.

So, the Green Haddock did infected me, it seems. Not with Hepatitis C or Ebola, but rather a very easy meme. So here it goes.

Rules: Post 5 random and weird facts about yourself, then at the end, list the names of 5 people whom you in turn infect. Also, leave a post to these people letting them know they have been infected.

1. My left eye doesn’t close all the way when I sleep.
2. I can pick up almost anything with my toes.
3. I cannot drink tequila because tequila is bottled aggression and I end up
fighting. (or another word that starts with F)
4. In college I cheated on an ethics test and my teacher made a really big deal
about how well I did in comparison to the rest of the class.
5. As a child, I ate snails out of the garden until my mom thought she had poisoned
me with snail-b-gone. After the hose down the throat experience, I stopped eating
garden snails.

So, here you go. I’m passing it on to some fabu people I want to know more about: Jeweled Concrete, American in Düsseldorf, Library Lady, Prairie Girl and Misspelled

Now, I have my test today, so I must go study. It’s really hard to focus right now with so much else to do. And I’m excited/nervös about the flight. I’m excited about seeing the wonder twins and sad to leave my kittens. We have a fabu house sitter. Our friend Mikey. He did it before for us when we went to Tuscany. The cats know him and he doesn’t mind morning snuggles.

The Cleo’s a bit worried. Mike has been instructed how to feed her and he’s not as much of a push over as I am. So, her diet will be enforced without me having to suffer. I made sure Mike knew to feed her at night otherwise he would get no sleep.

My back officially went out Wed night and I’ve been gimping and limping my way around. It usually snaps back into place if I can bend backwards far enough. It just hurts too much right now, but I’m going to have to bite the bullet. Its funny how a simple muscle spasm can completely debilitate you. I guess its really just pay back. I’ve been betraying my body for so long, it has to bite back occasionally.

So, I REALLY have to finish studying. Jeez. I’ve worked so hard on this class, yet I have no motivation to study for this test. Maybe I’m becoming more Euro, but I think I need a three week vacation. Studying Deutsch for three months straight is a tiresome.

  1. NG: Get going girlie. this should give you something to think about in class.

    PG: I totally love escargot. One of the best reasons for eating in Strasbourg. And i love that picture of you.

    James: I’m waiting…I know memes can be horrible to do to people, but this one seemed so simple.

    ET: i was unmotivated all day and now I’m working my ass off to get ready for this trip. Yikes.

  2. HI JEN,
    I finally posted my 5 fun facts about myself…sorry for the delay. They are my latest entry on my blog now…..and here, too:
    1. I was three months premature and therefore, I am lucky to be alive now…
    2. I remember when I was 8 years old and I was almost sucked out to sea. The undertoe was very strong and I was thinking–this is it…I am going to drown. Then, luckily, a large wave came up just in time and washed me back onto shore.
    3. I did not get my driver’s license on my first attempt. They asked me to do a three-point turn and I ended up driving off the road when I backed up because I accelerated too quickly. I was embarrassed, but luckily it was a street without curbs or any other obstructions in my way. Yes, I did get my license at the next attempt. 🙂
    4. I believe in reincarnation.
    5. I was in Berlin, Germany the day the Euro first went into circulation. I had some US dollars that I exchanged and the hotel employee exchanged them at a rate of 1 US dollar for 2 Euros. He must have been thinking of the old DM that was at the rate of 2 DM for 1 Euro. I didn’t say anything and went out of the hotel onto Kurfürstendamm and went shopping with the hotel’s money! (I believe it was a karmic payback for being ripped off in the past so I have no karmic debt for that transaction. )

  3. I will try to get the meme done as soon as I am out of the grip of Christmas “fun”. Hope this is the only thing I get infected with this season!!
