The Random Facts Meme

The Archcrone tagged me and who am I to deny her?  Here’s the rules I’m playing by:

1. All right, here are the rules.

2. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.

3. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

4. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

5. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Eight random things.  Okay.

1.  I love smoking cigars.  Nothing makes me feel more badass and sexy.

2.  I don’t like tequila; I just drink it because Mack does and I want Mack to think I’m cool (because I’m a dork).

3.  I hate wearing shoes.  I would go barefoot everywhere all the time if I could.

4.  My favorite place in Nashville is the righthand side bathroom at the Ryman.  I love those little octagon tile flowers.

5.  Though I, in general, think religions are, at some level, silly and I, myself, have one of the sillier ones, there are two fairly mainstream religions in the U.S. that seem to me so utterly riduculous, just on their face, that belief in them, to me, indicates a kind of personal failure on the part of their believers.  I am embarrassed to have that kind of bigotry, so I’m not mentioning which two they are.

6.  I keep dirt from Robert Johnson’s graves in my bedroom.

7.  Non-drowsy cold medicine puts me to sleep.

8.  I think the perfect breakfast cereal is Corn Chex mixed with Kellogg’s Raisin Bran.

Can we nominate folks who just comment and don’t have blogs?  I want to.  NM, especially, but anyone else who just comments but doesn’t have a blog, let’s hear from you in the comments!

  1. I also love to mix my own cereal concoction. Sometimes I’ve got as many as four different cereals in the bowl.None of the sweet, sugary ones though. Just the grain, granola kinds of things.
    I learned that trick from my grandparents.

  2. > so I’m not mentioning which two they are

    Decrying Discordian silliness is so grayface! What else but silliness can be a proper response to the muleheaded human persistance of the aneristic urge, in opposition to such a persistent and powerful goddess?

    Further proof for the Law of Fives: a google search for “discordian silliness” (with the quotes), returns exactly five results!

  3. OK, here you go:
    1) I am too tired today to think of eight random facts, so this is going to have to do for one of them.
    2) When I was a kid I had blonde hair. One of my grandfathers nicknamed me Blondie. Thank goodness that changed!
    3) No one in my family has wisdom teeth. My father told us it was because we were highly evolved.
    4) I am great at growing plants outdoors, but my indoor plants inevitably do poorly.
    5) I read a lot more languages than I can speak or understand when spoken. The oddest is Portuguese, which sounds nothing like what it should sound like according to the way I read it.
    6) My favorite color is a blue that’s sort of in between lapis, sapphire, and royal blue. It’s remarkably hard to find clothing in that color, especially in Nashville.
    7) I can cook Indian food very well, but I’m pretty helpless at cooking Chinese.
    8) When I watch country and rock videos, old or new, I comment on the significance of hair styles and clothing for both sociology and the artist’s life trajectory. I can shut up if asked, but I still think about it silently.

  4. Okay, I am a bit bored today and thought I would play along…

    1. I always have to have something on my lips… Blistex, chapstick, lipstick, you name it.
    2. I only drink my water icy cold. Gives me those “brain freeze” headaches but I do it anyway.
    3. I really do not think Brad Pitt is all that good looking.
    4. Just because you are in the elevator with me does not mean we have to talk.
    5. I can recite the 23rd Psalm in French but not English.
    6. In the mornings I brush my teeth in the shower. At night it is at the sink.
    7. I seek the typos in Chinese menus.
    8. I prefer blue ink over black and can offer no reasonable explanation for that.

  5. 1. I will go out of my way to avoid making a left turn
    2. My left eye cries if I am laying on my left side
    3. I had “cat scratch fever” as a child (not the Ted Nugent kind – it’s actually an allergic reaction to cats; fever, lymph nodes swell, etc.)
    4. I have always found Nicole Kidman to be a terrible actress. I never have believed the hype.
    5. If I get the hiccups one time a day, I will have them at least 2 to 3 more times before the day is over.
    6. My eyes have star shapes in the crystal blue iris part.
    7. I don’t envy people who are married.
    8. As a rule, I don’t drink liquor. Ever.

  6. one of my most interesting friends got married, I was a bridesmaid. We had those long skinny cigars after, and someone took a great picture of us which was published in Cigar Aficionado. It was cool. Plus, our bridesmaids dresses were actually hot, because my friend is cool like that.
