7 Things

Friday, December 07, 2007
Obviously I haven't felt very bloggerific lately, being obsessed with my dissertation and all. But I figured I'd go ahead and do the 7 things meme that MaggieMay tagged me for.

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Since I'm so late in the process, I'll skip the tagging.

So, weird things:

1) I am map-crazy. I can spend hours and hours examining historical maps. When I was a kid I used to trace them by holding xerox copies against the window.

2) I hated food until I got married. I had gotten so tired of bland and fried foods that I dreaded eating - until I went to New York! Now I have extra weight spend an absurd amount on nice food.

3) Another strange effect of getting married: Before living with Brazen Hussy, I had terrible insomnia. I'd spend hours and hours every night staring at my ceiling. But now I sleep like a baby. Brazen is so jealous...

4) I can't have an imbalance in my pockets. If there's something in the left front pocket, I have to put something in the right - even if I don't need it. On the other hand, I can't have anything in my back left pocket any heavier than a folded piece of paper.

5) I can only work if I can do it for at least an hour. If I have less than an hour to write or do analysis, then I just can't concentrate. I just space out waiting for the time to be over. But give me a spare second and my face is in a book.

6) I am bizarrely flexible. I've never needed to stretch before working out (although I know I should), and until I added some extra weight a few years ago I could put my feet behind my head.

7) I despise cheesecake. As far as I can tell, this makes me a minority of one. Everybody else loves it.

  • I am in agreement with you as to #7. Therefore you are in a minority of two. Neener Neener!

    I love the pics on the header, by the way.

  • Make that a minority of three! Cheesecake--blech :(

  • I'm so glad! I don't feel so alone anymore!

    Sisyphus: Yeah, I worked really hard putting that banner together, and was really pleased at how it turned out. Brazen helped, of course.

  • You and RL are freaks, you know that right??

    But this is a great list; I'm glad I tagged you!
