you can't spell 'meme'...

Without 'me.' And you can't spell 'procrastination' without 'contains airports.'

Way back around the 4th-ish of July, the lovely and talented Catherine Cantieri "tagged" me for this internet meme thing. So while I could make excuses, there really isn’t a good one. So without further adieu, let’s get into Eight Things You’ve Always Wanted to Know About Me but Were Afraid to Ask. But first –

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 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.

Now, 8 Things About Me....

  • I auditioned to host American Idol. Not sing for. Host. So it could be me frosting my tips and making out with Teri Hatcher. I’m still trying to wonder whether the massive pay would be worth it. But you know that I’d do a better job on the Oscar carpet.
  • Naturally, I’ve never seen a (full) episode of the show. I’ve also never seen The Sopranos. Or read a Harry Potter book.
  • I don’t need the show to embarrass myself. I sing in the car. Like, really sing – full out belting at the top of my lungs. I also try my best to “match” the singer’s voice and give a performance where I really “feel” the song, dawg.
  • I can’t whistle or blow bubbles. I’ve tried my entire life and nope. Not happening. Feel free to insert your own joke about my tongue/mouth in other arenas.
  • Even though I’m a semi-closeted Southerner, my favorite theme park is still Dollywood. I don’t care for country music too much, but their rides are fun and their funnel cake is heavenly. More importantly, it’s located in Pigeon Forge, which is like this massive explosion of tourist kitsch. Bungee-jumping! Rock-tumbling! Bumper cars! Pretty much any ridiculously cheesy thing you’ve always wanted to do? It’s there.
  • I have a mild allergy to rich dark chocolate. It makes me sneezy. Horribly, I love rich dark chocolate and used to mock my sister for this same allergy when we were younger. Because the universe has a sick sense of humor, I developed it.
  • I hate quizzes/multiple-choice “personality tests” in any way, shape or form. This is probably because my dad has a psych degree, so I was exposed to the concept at an early age. So I spend a lot of time reverse-engineering them to try to get the desired result and wondering what answers “they” want to get. Plus, I always want to answer “maybe” or in-between two answers. I draw the line at the Cosmo quiz.
  • I have a problem with authority. I always think I know better. Wishy-washy types will tell you that it makes me an “indigo child.” But it kinda makes me a prick who doesn't like to play by the rules. Your call. I don’t even think I know eight people with (non-Myspace) blogs, so I’m making a list of as many as I can and tagging a few. As I said. Problem with authority. Not naming names, but one person flat-out refused when I asked him/her in person.

This. That. No other.

I know that's not eight. I iz bad at maths. And really need to embrace the blogging community more.

I too have never seen The Sopranos or read a Harry Potter book. I have finished this meme though! Yes, finally!

Five weeks! And yet, not one of my facts/habits include procrastination.
