Diary of a Meme Virgin

Dear Diary;

Today I was tagged by

tariel22 to disclose some deep, dark secrets!  Okay, maybe not deep & dark, but she wanted a list of 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about me. 

I'm calling my list Taming of a Supernatural Shrew or
10 Things That May Surprise You
 

In no particular order:

(1)  I like to eat cocktail onions as a snack.  No martini or anything, just the onions.  Right out of the jar.  Using a fork.  Over the years, I've found that Unico has the best ones.  They're not too salty & a little sweeter than say, the Reese brand.  Unfortunately (for me), I don't think Unico makes them anymore.

(2)  In RealLife, I have the propensity to swear like a sailor.  I try to keep it under control (& under my breath) around children, strangers, & people who are offended by such language.

(3)  I collect Spongebob Squarepants stuff, lava lamps, & cheesy Elvis memorabilia (including an "E" lava lamp).  By cheesy, I mean things like the Elvis clock with the swinging legs pendulum & Elvis handbags (I have several).

(4)   In college, I was a writing/theater major & won the Best Actress award my senior year. 

(5)  Before the Metallicar, my fantasy automobile was a VW Karmann Ghia (early '70's vintage), closely followed by Christine ('58 Plymouth Fury).

(6)  I love to garden.

(7)  I prefer Pinball to video games, but I do like the old-school arcade games.  

(8)  I tend to hold a grudge.

(9)  To this day I cannot watch the "Hearts & Souls" episode of NYPD Blue.  That's the episode in which Bobby (Jimmy Smits) dies.  *sniff*

(10) I used to smoke. 


Well...I think that about does it!

Psst
You're supposed to tag other people and spread the love - kind of like a chain letter, or an STD.

Sorry, I had to butt in to say you're hilarious! LOL! And awesome Eddie Izzard icon! I can't stop looking at those eyes. Okay, butting back out now...

Yay! I'm so glad you posted this! Shakespeare reference FTW! \o/

1) I'm the same way with olives. I still do that kid thing where I put them on my fingers and pretend they're Buckingham Palace guards before I eat them. *facepalm* Not in public, though. :)

2) Swearing is very satisfying sometimes. I'm actually known for being very proper at my work (I'm not), and one time I got really mad and dropped a bunch of f-bombs (a huge no-no when you work at a school district). I got a whole room full of O_O faces and stunned silence. LOL!

3) Spongebob Squarepants! That show is hilarious! I loved the part in the movie with David Hasselhoff. hee!

4) Best Actress is very impressive. Um, I'm a good liar, does that count? :) Actually, acting blows me away - you make yourself so vulnerable, I think, pulling emotions out of your depths and putting them out there on display for your audience.

8) Me too, totally. Grrr.

9) Oh, I only watched that the one time, but I cried buckets.

Too fun! Thanks for sharing!

Very cool, Rap!

2) Too funny!

4) I can believe it! That’s awesome.

5) I used to have a '64 Ghia, OK, maybe a little different than the early 70's vintage, but it was a neat little car. :-)

Re: List of 10
Actually, I prefer my men a bit older, as in YED age! Too bad he's a goner. As for the boys, they both have appeal.

Since you tagged me, I'm here to tell you I did my list. It's not as funny as yours...

(3) I used to collect things about whales and unicorns .. Weird, right

(8) I do too, but I'm trying to work on it.. The result ain't that good.

Well, you tagged me, and I did mine - which, as is true of many things I write, goes on and on and on ... *grin*

#4 - Impressive. Most impressive!

Crrrrrrrrrap!
Number 3.

I thought it was really strange that I had this uncontrollable urge to buy Spongebox wrapping paper this afternoon. Now if had been a placemat, I would have understood. But WRAPPING PAPER?! Hahaha... You are a terrible influence sometimes, Rap. Or maybe I'm just too impressionable.

Re: Crrrrrrrrrap!
Hee hee hee!!!!!

I actually have a Spongebob placemat! My cat's drinking fountain sits on it. I also have the wrapping paper. I usually use it to wrap my father's gifts...he just shakes his head. Sometimes, I think he thinks I'm demented or something!:-p

I got a HUGE chuckle when the boys got stuck using one in HotH.

Sam: Dude, all right, I'll admit, we've gone pretty ghetto with spellwork before, but this takes the cake! I mean, a Spongebob placemat instead of an altar cloth?!

Dean: We'll just put it Spongebob-side down.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! *snort*

Re: Crrrrrrrrrap!
Ya, ya, ya... "sucker" tatooed on my forehead. How'd you know, Toady?! But I'm going to do it (buy the Spongebob wrapping paper) because I like sentimental things. Besides, it being the ONLY non-holiday theme option available, I was edging that way to begin with! I'm weird about stuff like that. The only "merry christmas" paper I'll buy says it in dozens of languages and I haven't found any yet. I MISS COST PLUS this time of year more than anything! It's like a little torture with a twist: just how creative can I be?!

Embraced the Darkside? Ya. Refer to "sucker" tatoo comment above!

Well, I've wandered in late. I'm supposed to be writing something but I'm procrastinating because the thought isn't working at the moment. So I've been perusing these lists ya'll have been doing and enjoying them immensely.

I like yours. It sounds like I picture you and that thrills me. A drama queen with a big heart, a lust for life, grounded to the world and the beauty around it and appreciative of the small things.

Meantime ... I'll be with Toady, not wanting to piss you off for fear of #8. :-)

Regarding #8...you gals could never piss me off! *hugs*
