7 Things about Crazy

Indeed, 'tis a meme. Thanks to Caroline, who tagged me for it.

The rules:

  • Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog - some random, some weird.
  • Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.
  • Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Ok, first, before I begin, let me say this: I hate the whole tagging thing. So consider yourselves tagged if you'd like to participate, though especially Medusa, Maude, Maggie, Hilaire, Curmudgeon, New Kid, and Sisyphus. I'm not bothering to comment anywhere to alert people of this meme. I suck that way :)

So, 7 facts about me:

  1. When I was three years old, apparently I announced far and wide that I'd like to be a cartoon when I grew up. Am now thinking this could have been a good option, as I feel like the profession of "cartoon" is much less cutthroat than the profession of "professor."
  2. You know that episode of Seinfeld where they say it's impossible to perform the "roommate switch"? I totally accomplished that feat. Much to my detriment, but I did make it happen. Note: I never engaged in any sort of threesome.
  3. I am weirdly mesmerized by the Gosselins.
  4. You should all go buy The Breeders' latest album. It is awesome. In no small part because of this song.
  5. One of my big claims to fame in high school was that I could hit the Mariah Carey high note in this song - see minutes 3:46-3:51 - (I was a first soprano in choir after all), but only when I was drunk.
  6. My hair was never died (permanently) or even highlighted (other than with Sun-In) until I was in my 20's.
  7. I had the opportunity to go see REM in concert when they were doing the Green tour (I was a freshman in highschool) and my mother wouldn't let me because I'd have been going (in a group - huff) with a boy who was a senior. I have never seen REM live, and I blame my mother. Obviously I can't have gone to see REM since then because I know (now) that Life's Rich Pageant was their best work, and so to do so would make me a poser. So indeed, my mother is to blame.

I am also amazed by the Gosselins. There is also some show with 13 kids (12 boys) that I am strangely pulled too. What amazes me about this show is that the lone girl is not the youngest. Did you see the show were they went to that zoo? I got to do that tour.

I could hit that note too. As and added bonus, when I was nervous, I would sing an octave too high perfectly on pitch. Totally freaked my choir director out.

I am inviting you to do another meme on my bloggy blog.
