it's all about meme

Thanks to my good friend Lisa, I have something to talk about today. Because frequently, I'm pretty quiet & shy...

This is the "Random/Weird Things About Yourself" meme. I've kinda been doing this all along, I think, but I'll be more specific for the purposes of this game. Enjoy.
First the rules:
*Link to the person(s) who tagged you and post the rules on your blog check
*Share 7 random/weird things about yourself will do
*Tag 7 people at the end of your post and include links to their sites do I know 7 people with blogs??
*Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog got it
  1. I worked for two years at a drive-up fast food place called Kow Korner - but that's not the weird part. I had to wear a cowboy hat & bolo tie - also not the weird part. I cried when it closed & was torn down, and still avoid the street it was on in my home town; if we have to drive by there, I look away.
  2. I used to make up secret routines for songs ("Leader of the Pack" was my best number) and lip sync in front of my vanity mirror. For hours.
  3. I've written two e-mails to Fountains of Wayne. No response. Surprisingly.
  4. I smell things, a lot. Usually food & drink; I like to think I have a heightened awareness of what may or may not be poisonous. If you asked my best friend in college, she would remember me once sniffing a cow magnet. Something about it made me think it would smell like licorice (it didn't).
  5. I thoroughly enjoyed making up voices when reading the Harry Potter books. I just didn't realize in book 1 that Hagrid would be such a prominent character...
  6. When cooking or baking, I clean as I go. Obsessively.
  7. Sometimes I will 'air type' things people are saying around me. I started doing it in high school to practice my typing skills; now it just qualifies as a weird habit.

I will tag Elaine at Blog in My Eye and Katydidnot and Suz at The World According to her... And anyone else who wants to, jump in and get weird.

Oh, I think making up secret routines to songs is one of the great joys of life. My husband and I usually do this in the car when we're bored.

I'll get on this meme.

I've been meaning to ask you if you've heard of a book called 'List Yourself'. I think you might need to own one if you don't already. -e.

Pretty cool idea. I think I'll just watch it unfold. And I loved your number seven.
