I got tagged. By Dan. And he lured me out of my apartment so he could do it without me knowing.

The Rules:

  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. People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules. (**if you’re a non-blogger, you can email them!)
  4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

And now, the news:

  1. I have really bad ankles. They are very loose, and have a habit of giving out at extremely inopportune times, often causing me to fall flat on the floor for no apparent reason. However, an ironic side effect of this is that I practically never injure them. A few weeks ago I rolled my right ankle while bowling, ending up flat on my face as usual (though I still managed to get 8 pins down). My leg hurt for a week, not because of any injury to my ankle, but because I apparently rolled it far enough to pull a muscle in my calf.
  2. I eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in exactly eleven bites.
  3. I find great enjoyment in the ridiculous and irreverent in nearly all areas of life. For example, ranked highly among the most entertaining gifts I have ever been given are a bass fishing action figure (the ultimate physical embodiment of an oxymoron), and a plastic pig (given to me on Valentine's day) that, for lack of a better way to describe it, poops jelly beans — chocolate flavored. Both currently sit in a place of honor atop my desk.
  4. I am a spectacularly deep sleeper. When I am deciding what time to set my alarm, I have to allow for the time it will take for me to wake up after it starts to go off. I also have to keep it at least four feet away from my bed, so that I am forced to get out of bed to shut it off. This is because I have, on at least one occasion, turned off my alarm, engaged in a conversation with my roommate, reset my alarm for a different time and turned it back on, and then laid back down — all without waking up.
  5. I can cross each of my eyes independently.
  6. I am strongly in favor of abolishing the penny. Pennies, much like the weights underneath my bed, are worthless pieces of metal that I pay for but which do me absolutely no good because I always forget to use them.
  7. Despite my name apparently meaning "God's gift," I have never been on a date.
  8. I know exactly one joke that is funny and I can't even tell it, because telling it properly involves more theatrics than I am usually capable of engaging in.

I am running out of blogging friends who have not been tagged already, but I will tag Sean, Amber, Trey, Sarah, Rob, Amy, Jonathan (not me), and Max.

Jeff told me about this late last week, but I didn't check it out until just now. 1 interesting fact about myself is a stretch so this may take some time. :x
