Tagged! 7 Random Things

I've been tagged by two mamis, Momto3 and My3Ro's (oooh, some strange "3" thing going on here). So, here's the meme! Y'all know the rules, you get tagged, you link to the taggers and you name some folks to continue the "chain". This one is "Seven Random or Weird Things About You".

1. I once caught a cat fish that was longer than my leg.

2. In 1990 I went to a small house party in Los Angeles and hung out with the New Kids on the Block. I HATED them (the band, not the people), but it was at the height of their popularity and the girl I went with had a hysterical breakdown of excitement, tears and hyperventilation. (She then went on to become one of Janet Jackson's dancers, she didn't stay star struck for very long).

3. I visited England and Scotland when I was 9 years old and all I wanted to do was visit haunted places. My "guide book" for the trip was "The Ghosts of Great Britain" and I LOVED the Tower of London and all its gory stories. Yep, weird kid obsessed with death.

4. I wear thong underwear but not thong bikinis.

5. I can wear children's shoes and children's glasses (my current glasses are "Barbie" brand)

6. I lost my virginity to the song "Take Me Home" by Phil Collins. Yes, on purpose, I brought a 90 minute cassette with the song taped over and over for the big event. The over and over for 90 minutes part was pretty ambitious for a first timer.

7. I have never, ever had a cavity and the thought of getting one terrifies me. Drilling a hole in my teeth to fix a hole in my teeth just freaks me out.

I guess technically I am supposed to tag some folks, but I know how much it makes you crazy But, in keeping with tradition, I will tag with an "out" option for those of you too busy to do this. So, Heather, Lisa, Liz, Wayne, Theresa, Jonna and Joyce, give'er a whirl if you are up for it, no one will be hurt if you don't and there will be no bad luck for breaking the chain.

Well, the thing is, I have so little to blog about lately that I might just do it. The tough part is coming up with 7 random and/or weird things about myself. You see, I am the epitome of normal.

Yes I am.

And what size are your feet, for crying out loud?

Canucka, I did this one before, I am going to take a pass. Besides I am totally weird and random by birth and nature.
Read any of my blog posts and you will learn a weird and random fact about me.

I will do it. Uh, soon.
