11 Random Things - Yeah I got tagged... have you been tagged yet?

On the surface, I LOATHE stuff like this as they have their origin in the ever-annoying "Chain Letter". However, I do enjoy reading things like this on other people's blogs because while I read their blog and feel like I know the person, I never really do. These exercises remind me of that fact: The internet, no matter how "personal" it may seam, can never truly replace getting to know someone face to face.

Ms. LillyPea... you and I need to have some tea/wine/appetizer SOMETHING sometime soon!

Without further ado...

11 Random Facts About Me
  1. I have a habit of chewing ice.
  2. When I go to big parties, if I am being included in the conversation I'd rather sit by myself. If I'm not being included in the conversation I try to become a part of it.
  3. I realize that I am incredibly selfish.
  4. There are two things I am powerless against: Ian Somerhalder, and Chris Cornell's voice. Three if you add "Eric Northman".
  5. I am constantly sad that Cicero is going to die one day and I will most likely still be here. 
  6. It's not uncommon for me to have a song stuck in my head for weeks (or months).
  7. I may actually have a better talent for laser tag than my husband. Quite possibly I have more talent at using my real gun too (yes, I have one... it's named "Kitty").
  8. Almost daily I think about discontinuing this blog. 
  9. My high school adviser used to say if he saw me smiling he knew I was unhappy. 
  10. I have a large collection of Buffy the Vampire Slayer action figures.
  11. Virtually the only nail polish I wore in high school was Revlon Blackberry.

    11 Questions to me from LillyPea
    • What’s your least favorite chore? Weeding. I hate it moistly because of the bugs, dirt, and occasional dog droppings in my yard. AND it has to be done constantly or it gets impossible. I usually let it get impossible, and then let my husband get mad at me.
    • Do you take daily vitamins? Yes. Shakeology is a mutlivitamin
    • Name one crafty project you want to tackle. Knitting that Rag & Bone Inspired sweater I keep dreaming about.
    • What’s one food item you couldn’t give up? Water.
    • If you could have a shopping spree at any retailer, who would you choose? Althea Harper! You need to ask?
    • What super power do you wish you had? Don't make me choose... being invisible, being able to change my appearance, being able to jump around in other people's dreams.
    • What famous person do people say you resemble? I have gotten the following: Alicia Silverstone, Meg Ryan, Reece Witherspoon, Kara Thrace (but oddly NOT Katee Sackhoff herself), and Emma Stone. If you count MyAncestry.com, then I also resemble The Rock and Jada Pinkett Smith.
    • What’s one of your fitness goals for 2012? Break the 150 lb barrier.
    • Cookies or cupcakes? Cookies!!!!!!
    • What trendy word do you wish people would stop using? "Irregardless". It's not real! "regardless" means what people use "irregardless" for!
    • What is your favorite holiday? Thanksgiving. Used to be Halloween. Although I'm not sure I like Thanksgiving anymore either. Do I really have to answer this question?
