First 7 ~ now 8?

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

I don’t know how the 7 random things meme became the 8 random things meme, but it has and I was tagged by Allie over at Allie’s Musings to do this (edited to add and Baba’s blog) … I’m thinking you guys are going to know more about me than Matt if I keep doing lists. I also think after doing the 100 things about me post and then the last few I am about random ed out, but because I love a good meme and cannot skip a tag I am going to dig deep for 8 random facts about me.

  1. I love Parmesan cheese, the real kind that has parmigiana ragiano (sp?) stamped on the side. I could eat it plain anytime!
  2. I like it dark in the house. I get teased about it from everyone because I keep all the lights off. Matt comes home from work and starts turning lights on and it bugs me. I don’t like overhead light. I like light from some lamps, but overall I like it pretty dark. I even read without light most of the time.
  3. I like to smell soap. I get stuck in the soap aisle at the store smelling soap. When I was pregnant I carried soap in my car and smelled it often, I even had the desire to taste it (weird huh?).
  4. I like to give advice, most of my friends know this and must like me in spite of it. I always have a solution to a problem (almost always).
  5. I don’t like anyone to mention the animal which is being eaten during a meal. It literally turns my stomach and I cannot eat another bite. Like if someone were to say, “pass the pig.” I would get up and throw my food away. Yes, I know where it comes from I just don’t like to think about it.
  6. I have the amazing ability of compartmentalizing my feelings. I can literally tuck a thought or feeling away to be dealt with at a later time or never.
  7. I hate trash. It stinks and is icky. I don’t like driving beside a garbage truck, or walking by a trash container.
  8. I love cute pjs. There is nothing better than taking a bath/shower, using lots of good lotion and spray, and putting on cute pjs!

Okay, that was harder than I thought it would be and I’m pooped. I would maybe resist posting these weird facts about myself but since Corrie said she liked the smell of skunks, I think I’m okay :o).

Who to tag, who to tag, more like… who will do this? YOU are tagged, please leave me a comment so I can come read yours too.

And, while your still with me after all this… any suggestions about where to travel next week for TTT would be appreciated. I have several thoughts but would like some suggestions.
