another nablomopo list

LizzieLou | meme,nablopomo | Friday, November 27th, 2009

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.


  1. Number 7 is truly awesome (I’m picturing a California Dreaming kind of scenario). Regarding #2, which one is your other sister?

  2. Hi Matt – I say “other sister” = older sister, because last year I confessed to tormenting the younger one. Poor sisters.

  3. How did I not see this until just now? Tonight, before Janie comes home from work, I’m going to drag myself around the house to see how things would go.
