I’ve been Memed

So, since I’ve gotten memed twice, once from Jess, whom I had actually not read before, but will be, and the other from Maria whose dog I want to steal. No really, I want her dog.

I’ll just double it and call it a day.

Here I go.
1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. I don’t tag people, but if you are so inclined, take it. We all like knowing more about people we read.

  • My eyes are green, but most people tell me they’re blue. Look closer, dude.
  • I like looking at nature, but I hate being IN nature.
  • My brother broke my front tooth by sitting on my head when my head was on the side of the pool. He claims it was some jump-into-the-pool trick gone bad, but I don’t buy it.
  • I am terrified of raccoons. They’re big and mean and have really sharp claws. There is a story behind this one, but I’ll save that for later.
  • I anthropomorphize everything. It makes getting rid of stuff really hard because I tend to make everything my friend.
  • I read too much celebrity gossip.
  • I once had a cat named Serendipity. She was blind and deaf and oh so sweet. My family called her Dippy. She eventually got out of the house and as the story goes, found a nice family on a farm.
  • I did not kill my brother’s dog, Bonkers.
  • I get up really early in the morning, like 6 am early. I really like getting up at 4:30 or 5, but I have to go to sleep earlier and its hard when you’re married.
  • The magical side effect of getting up so early, is that by 1 pm, I’m ready for a nap. My energy is pretty much shot by then. However I can do more in that period of time than anyone I know all day. I’m a fast machine.
  • I love schedules. I live by them and try to make those around me live by schedules. This rarely works.
  • I like to bite, especially Sparky’s shoulder because when I hug him that’s where my mouth rests.
  • Sparky is not allowed to buy a Lotus Elise until I’m ready to be rid of him and make loads in insurance pay offs. It’s the official “I should divorce my wife” signal.
  • I hate that there is usually a logical explanation for things.
  • I wake up every morning thinking about coffee. Every. Morning.  Might have something to do with getting up kinda early.
  • If a think about where “meat” comes from, I can’t eat it. I would be a vegetarian if i had to… uhh, gather said food myself.

Alright. My sister has loudly complained that I haven’t blogged in a while. I hereby promise to blog for the next five days in a row. Then I’m gone for the weekend and can’t promise.

It’s also death march time in our household in regards to birthdays and father’s day. My sister, my step-mom and my dad have b-days and then there is the duplicate fathers days for both my dad and my step dad. Its worse than Christmas as far as tossing money around. Lots to do.

  1. To set things straight:

    – Your eyes ARE green… green-blue.
    – You only hate nature because you can’t stand insects. It’s all about avoiding the soft touches from their litte legs. What do you have against soft touches, really?
    – You brother loves you, Jen. (Almost) more than I do ;).
    – You only hate the raccoons because you wanted to eat the cat food yourself. You might as well be honest about your guilty pleasures.
    – Yeah, you do athropomorphize. But your computer is NOT your friend. In fact, it hates you.
    – You don’t read too much celeb gossip. I bet I know more about K-Fed than you do.
    – In her new place, Dippy even managed to slim down!
    – Bonkers hates you even more than your computer does. WHY did you kill him…? He was a GOOD dog.
    – The devil wakes you up to make my life harder…
    – ..and you DO keep your motor clean!
    – The devil also makes you do your schedule to make my life EVEN harder
    – OUCH! Your bites really hurt. Also, my business partner recently asked me why I look like a gang of hobos beat me up.
    – That’s ok. I’ll just buy a Tesla Roadster: http://www.teslamotors.com
    – Thank god you have me to remind you about those logical explanations. Isn’t life fun when you don’t have to deal with magic?
    – …and then you tempt me with your coffee to make me clean the windows! (https://heissescheisse.wordpress.com/2006/09/23/sparkys-high/)
    – Nature scares you on so many levels, eh? Maybe I was wrong with my single-focus correction to Item 1…
