People Know Me

I got a little shoutout the other day from fellow Friendfeeder Mona on her blog Pixel Bits for a meme I participated in. Apparently I’ve been in a lot of vehicle accidents! Woo! Anyway, here’s the meme I participated in, reprinted for your edification. Enjoy.

  1. I loathe lotions of any kind. I won’t even use sunscreen because of how horrible it feels on my hands.
  2. I chew on the string of my hoodies.
  3. I’m very jittery. Watch me try to keep still and see…
  4. I lose my train of thought in the middle of stories.
  5. I have some kind of insomnia. I say “some” because I manage to get sleep in there somewhere. Stayed up till 6am this morning, matter of fact. (edit: That was a day or so ago, by the way)
  6. I get panic attacks. They last awhile sometimes.
  7. I walk a lot.
  8. I have two pet cats who have steadily become more and more important in my life. I carry conversations with them regularly.
  9. I’m allergic to wood nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, anything like that that grows on trees). Many trips to the ER have proven this. And yes, it’s a fatal allergy.
  10. I can eat the same thing day in and day out and not get sick of it, provided that I only have it once a day….if that makes sense.
  11. I usually WILL go there. That’s right! You heard me.
  12. Before I can get truly relaxed for bed, I need to rub my feet together a few times. It’s very soothing.
  13. I have been hit by a taxi before, while crossing the street.
  14. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry…in a car…during rush hour.
  15. I have fan art published in the Knuckles spin-off comic from Archie Comics.
  16. I absolutely MUST MUST watch a TV show from episode 1 forward. If I watch it out of context, I don’t get into it.
  17. I have crashed two vehicles, one a conversion van and the other a pickup truck. Both were my fault, but no one was hurt except me…
  18. I fear even the smallest of heights. If I’m on a ladder, my knees shake and I get all sweaty in the palms.
  19. Bloody noses tend to push my panic button in a very serious way.
  20. I’m a writer because I’m not good with the talky talky.
  21. I have a difficult time looking people in the eyes. A very difficult time.
  22. I’m one of those people who becomes way friendlier when booze is involved.
  23. My shoe size is 13.
  24. I overthink things way too much.
  25. Public mirrors. Cannot stand to see myself in them. I HATE HATE HATE them. I hate myself in them. I don’t think I can stress this enough.

Oh yeah, and we have a new president now. Fun times.

    I am very much in agreement about watching TV shows from episode 1. Even shows that aren't storiented.

  • It just helps with context and getting into the characters, as usually the rules established in the pilot carry over into the rest of the series.

  • bobwise

    I started watching both It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Big Bang Theory when the shows were in their third and second seasons, respectively. Before I watched any of the new episodes I went back and watched all the previous ones. I just can't get into a show if I know that there is some information about the characters that other people know and I don't.

        Edit: AND I’ve been hearing a lot about How I Met Your Mother, and kind of want to check it out because it has both Allyson Hannigan AND Neil Patrick Harris, but there are 77 episodes already!

        • It’s definitely worth watching from the beginning, and I’m planning on doing that since I forgot where I ended up before I moved on to another series. Don’t let the 77 eps daunt you. They’ll go by fast. I pretty much tore through the first four seasons of Buffy in a little over a month.

            Well sure, but Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the greatest TV show ever made.

            I just started the 7th season, and I’m actually dreading finishing it. I’m toying with the idea of just not watching the series finale, so that I always know there is some part of Buffy I haven’t seen yet.

          • Lol, nice. I’m catching up, then! I’m going to be starting the 5th season as soon as I can get my hands on it.

  • thanks for the post

  • No prob. Now it's your turn to pass this one to friends and family! As they say, tag you're it. :)
