Oh fine....I'll do it...

Alright, alright...

I have now been "tagged" by Lil Meg and Med Meg to post '7 Random Things' about myself. So...um....here we go? These might get pretty random.

1.) I hate mushrooms. Hate. Can't. Eat. Them. After my guy roommates in college decided not to clean their bathroom for a year to prevent people from using it, I saw mushrooms growing in their bathtub. I'm not exaggerating. I dislike mushrooms because of their taste and texture...but that sure didn't win them any points. You're suspect, mushrooms.

2.) I bite the skin off my cuticles. Usually it's a sign that I'm nervous, stressed, or thinking, but it's a vicious cycle. You bite the cuticle, then it starts growing back, but it's jagged so you HAVE to pull at it. It's a disgusting habit I want to desperately break, but just can't seem to kick.

3.) Sometimes...usually when I'm by myself....and focusing on something...my mouth will slightly open....I'll forget to swallow...and I'll drool. God, it's really embarrassing.

4.) I run into things. A lot. I know a lot of girls say that and they think it makes them endearing ("oooh...i'm so clumsy and cute! like a baby deer!"), but this is neither cute or sexy....I ran into a bookshelf at work today...in front of people...


5.) Eating healthy and exercising has always been very important to me, but has recently become a real focus. It takes research and seeking out information to find out what is actually good for you and what will damage your body. I firmly believe that our society wouldn't be so heavily medicated if we all just ate REAL food...at least most of the time. Additionally, I've started boxing. I've got a mean left hook.

6.) That said, I have a very deep and serious weakness for berries and dark chocolate (antioxidants!!) .....and really great french fries (grease! the other white meat!)

7.) I often wonder if I should have chosen a career path that would have enabled me to make a real difference and contribution to the world. When I was much younger I was so passionate about changing the world. I was going to become a zoologist and be the next Diane Fossey and live in the Virunga Mountains with the gorillas and single handedly stop their extinction...now I work in niche cable television. Sigh...

Alright...so that's that...I guess I'm supposed to tag someone? Nah...how about whoever wants to just posts 7 random things about themselves. It's sort of interesting to see what comes out of your brain...

I like that you drool...it makes you that much more interesting!

And mushrooms: have you tried them sauteed? I'm just saying.

The drooling thing is one of the funniest things I've read in a while.

You also need to come over and use your mean left hook soon.
