Meme 1: Things you don’t usually tell anyone . . . (the one I want to do)
…a strange combination of food you like to snack on.
Fat free cottage cheese with steak sauce or Worcestershire sauce. NUM!!!!!
…something you do that other bloggers who read you might find odd if they saw you doing it.
Swear a string of obscenities so long that Hay blushes and asks me to stop.
…when you were 7, what you wanted to be when you grew up – that you never told anyone about.
A veterinarian. Or a brain surgeon. Or a teacher. Or an astronaut. Or unemployed, because that sounds really super fun. The ones I told people about are the ones I’d actually be good at.
…the thing you don’t tell people at work about yourself.
The address or name of my blog.
…what you like to do when no one else is going to be home for a stretch of time.
Wear minimal clothing, get a nice big glass of (whatever I felt like) and some sort of cheese product and watch horror movies, one after the other after the other after the other after the other after the other.
…the thing you believe – politically – that you don’t admit to people who think you think like they do.
I don’t believe in voting for my local politicians other than the governor, senators, and congressmen because I don’t know or care who the other people are. And even those people are voted in by me based on their popularity. Yes, with me it really is a popularity contest.
…that one thing from your childhood, outside of your parents, that you try to maintain some kind of connection with, and how.
My love of animals.
…a song or group or singer you secretly like that everyone else groans about.
The “had a bad day” song from American Idol when the contestants get voted off. Poor Hay has to listen to me sing it at the top of my lungs.
…do you close the bathroom door when you’re the only one home?
Sometimes, but generally not.
