It's a facebook thing.

Normally I don't respond to the various solicitations on facebook ("See who has a crush on you!" "Click here to find out what people are saying about you!" "Download this app or risk becoming a social outcast!"), but I recently complied with one request asking me to post 25 random things about myself. A couple of friends had listed their own 25 things and tagged me asking me to do the same. I'm just sitting around in my housecoat doing nothing remotely productive anyway, so what the heck?

Twenty-Five Things About Me

1. I don't like being told what to do.
2. I get anxious about wasted time because old people have warned me that life flies by faster than you would ever expect. Gee, thanks a lot, old people.
3. Apparently I can never have enough pets, even when I have too many.
4. I'm so disillusioned, it's a wonder that I can still be disappointed.
5. I wish I had been born multi-lingual. I'm too bashful to endure being a "_.S.L." student.
6. I'm so odd, even my synesthesia is atypical.
7. Number 7 is stumping me. Try again later.
8. It amuses me that Connecticut has two trash museums and the largest display of Celebriducks in the world.
9. If someone would just cook and clean for me, I'd be happy to tend to the other household activities (such as eating and making a mess).
10. Oh yeah, I'd like someone to exercise for me, too.
11. I am quickly realizing that these 25 things are not going to be profound in the least.
12. I really like our wedding vows.
13. I doubt that Scott has even read our wedding vows, except for the part that he had to repeat during our ceremony.
14. I expect to get grief from Scott for writing #13.
15. I believe strongly in both individual rights and individual responsibilities, and I think it's a shame that more people don't feel the same way.
16. I'm afraid of burned-out incandescent lightbulbs, as they remind me of Fonzie's disembodied head.
17. No, I don't do illicit drugs.
18. I likely wouldn't enjoy my slumber so much if I didn't find it so difficult to fall asleep.
19. Food where it doesn't belong makes me laugh really hard. There was a baked potato on the corner of Yonge and York Mills and I could barely contain myself.
20. If I think about it I can see how much my personality has changed over the years, which is both good and bad.
21. I really, really, really want to find volunteer work that Scott and I can enjoy doing together.
22. I don't think that #21 is going to happen.
23. It is driving me batty to have my basement out of commission and to be unable to have hoards of people and their pets over.
24. I wish that there was a search function for physical objects. I would be searching for "SD card from my wedding" right now.
25. I hope that you don't do what I've just done and waste a perfectly beautiful afternoon sitting at your computer.

He is right, you know!

I've been tagged for that one a couple of times but am usually so hung up trying not to lose at Wordscraper that I haven't gotten around to it...yet!

I'm with Al Franken.:)

I wish I lived in Canada, you sound like a great person. We could drive around in our matching Elements. I would go first for obvious reasons.

You have nothing to fear from Fonzie's head.

Yours is one of the best 25 Things I've read!
RE #2: The older I get, the more I realize that many times the old people are right. I'm 7 years younger than what my driver's license says. How the hell did that happen? Oh, time flies.
Because I am a sucker for a good meme, or even a bad one, I can never resist filling them out. Therefore I DID in fact waste a perfectly good evening writing my 25 Things. :)

Dad, I love that you're always there to support me, even when I'm being a complete goofball.

Alan, I haven't tried Wordscraper yet. I'm afraid that I would get hooked.

HAR, that would be AWESOME if you were in Canada. And no worries, your Element would definitely go first.

Rob, are you sure? I mean really, truly certain? I just can't shake the terror.

Ryssee, I went promptly to your blog anxious to see your 25 things, but I suppose you meant that you wrote them on facebook.

If we outlaw Fonzie's head, then only outlaws will have Fonzie's head.

Hahaha! I've been so lazy with blogging lately, I'll do it now!
