Paula tagged me with a meme:

8 Random Things about Me

The rules
1: Each player states 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2: People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules.
3: At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.
4: Don’t forget to leave them a comment to tell them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

  1. I do not like soggy cereal. Because of this, I’ve eaten my cereal dry since kindergarten.
  2. I have a running dialogue going through my head almost all the time. Rudi says he can tell when I’m writing things I find amusing because I smile as I type. I also hold fights in my head, which I’ve been told is unfair to the other person participating in them.
  3. I once went to a WIC office pretending to be a new single mom to do research for a paper. I once went to the mall pretending to be deaf just to gauge people’s reactions.
  4. I do not like the taste of mint candy, gum, or toothpaste, but I like it paired with chocolate, particularly in my grandmother’s mint sticks and in mint chocolate chip ice cream.
  5. I learned to whistle from listening to the wind blow through the trees at my grandparents’ house.
  6. It wasn’t until college that I could tell my right hand from my left without instinctively having to raise one over my heart as if to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
  7. I don’t like the taste of alcohol, so don’t drink it.
  8. My senior year of high school, during a visit to the D.C. area, I was approached in a suburban mall by a man who asked if I wanted to star in “adult movies.”

I’m not tagging anyone, but if you’d like to play along, I invite you to do so either on your own blog or in the comments.
