I used this in previous NaBloPoMos in 2008 and 2007. I’ll carry on the tradition this year with seven more things-about-me:

Thing 1. I used to drag myself around the house when I was left home alone to see how I would manage if I couldn’t use my legs.

Thing 2. I tormented my other sister by meticulously cutting out pictures of bugs from a RAID ad in a magazine and taping them up all around her bedroom.

Thing 3. Although I have kept almost every diary, journal, and datebook that I ever had, and almost letter that I have ever received, I’m starting to believe that it is probably ok to start getting rid of that stuff because it is looking less and less likely that I will be so famous that people would want to archive it all after I’m dead.

Thing 4. I tell people things that I shouldn’t in order to make them laugh, mostly at work.

Thing 5. I know that I could drop dead at any moment and that I am ill-prepared to do so… and not just because my correspondence is not properly cataloged.

Thing 6. If I ever borrowed a book of yours and never gave it back, I am completely aware that I have done so, feel guilty about it frequently, and wonder when/how I will get it back to you.

Thing 7. I once passed out drunk in a church: it was cold out, the door was open, I went in to pee, and then I was suddenly so sleepy.

A Game for NaBloPoMo without the Tag

LizzieLou | meme,nablopomo | Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

I will take time again this November for the seven things list. Last year it was “random or weird” things and this year is “revealing” things. I think these are the same kinda things for me.

Thing 1.  I get choked up every time I watch the opening of American Experience on PBS.

Thing 2.  I once really thought that the exotic dancer really liked me.

Thing 3.  I “accidently spilled” a beer into the lap of a guy who I thought was flirting with my girlfriend.

Thing 4.  I spent so much time yelling “BOO!” and jumping out of doorways at my sister when she walked down the hall to and from her bedroom that I gave her PTSD.

Thing 5.  I meant to kiss my cat on the head, but he turned around and because I had my little eyes closed I kissed his anus instead.

Thing 6.  I have to cut all the labels out of all of my clothes all of the time because they might someday make me itchy.

Thing 7.  I had a coworker ask me if I was “glowing” because I was in love, and I did not tell her it was because of watching Xena Warrior Princess.

Thanks to Matt for helping me out by providing me a blog post idea as the month goes on and on. Merci.

A NaBloMoPo Game of Tag

LizzieLou | meme,nablopomo | Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

I’ve been tagged by “fiwa” at Fiwa-ese who has the good sense to like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Nina Simone, and Kitchen Confidential. This is being referred to as a “meme” but as I’m old school, let’s just call it a chain-letter, no?

a. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. [check!]
b. Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself. [check!]

Thing 1. Celebrities frequently appear in my dreams. Last night it was Diana Taurasi and the night before it was George Lopez (but he actually had the body of a tiny baby bunny so maybe that doesn’t entirely count.)

Thing 2. When I had a laparoscopic appendectomy my belly button was sewn back up smaller.

Thing 3. After I got my hair cut for the first time, I told my mother that I would no longer respond to my old name. My new name was Carol.

Thing 4. On our first date, that wasn’t actually a date until later when we decided that it had felt like a date and maybe we should go ahead and start dating, I hardly made eye-contact with Lolly at all.

Thing 5. One evening at bath time I became very distressed and started crying. I reported the following reason to my mother: “I have a hole!”

Thing 6. For a time I had convinced myself that I saw a demonic imp run down the hallway of my parent’s house.

Thing 7. I have found the MySpace pages of the children I used to babysit for and I am shocked, SHOCKED, by their use of profanity.

c. Tag 7 random people participating in nablopomo at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. [randomish – check!]
