Another Random and Weird Blog Meme

tags: , ,

One of the very first people who ever read or linked to my blog, Tabor, tagged me to participate in a blog meme. Since I am a veteran blog whore who always is looking to increase my traffic, I will play, although grudgingly, because I hate letting you all know how boring I truly am.

The Rules are as follows:

  1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  2. Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself.
  3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
  4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Seven Random or Weird Things About Me:

  1. My favorite vegetables are asparagus and spinach, but I never ate either one of them until I was an adult
  2. Even though I hate beer, I drink it when I go to pubs because it is relatively affordable for me and I know I won't drink too much of it
  3. I bake the best cookies in the world, but since I cannot afford the gas for my stove these days, I rely solely on my microwave to cook food -- none of which are cookies (boohoo)
  4. I have been in love many times in my life, but no one has ever been in love with me
  5. I love wearing sweaters, although NYC rarely has good sweater-wearing weather (cool, but not windy or rainy)
  6. I love both real vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate, but rarely eat either one
  7. I have never owned a TV, although I enjoy watching it

The infamous "random things" meme is again making the rounds and I've been doubly tagged, first by Greg Laden and then by Mike Haubrich, so just as I've done in the past (see here and here) I'll pull double duty an try to come up with some original answers. I'll continue Greg's line first since he…
Arghhh! I hate blog memes, but rules are rules. As Robert Service said, "a promise made is a debt unpaid, and the trail has its own stern code," and although I'm not sure how that applies, I'm forced to respond. From Abel over at TerraSig comes a random blog meme...literally. For the uninitiated…
The grades are filed! I have officially dodged the bullet of delaying the family's get-away with my incessant grading (since it turned out to be cessant, I guess). It seems only right to mark the occasion with a meme -- the "seven random things about me" meme, for which I have been tagged twice.…
And I was. It was the dreaded Seven Random and Weird things meme! It's on the loose and I've been tagged. The rules are: Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include…

Two words: hard cider.

Try the free category on Craig's list if you want a teevee.

And a solar oven, I'm told, will bake cookies superbly. There are make your own instructions on the web.

And finally, I'm reading Madeleine L'Engle's A Circle of Quiet - Greeks had four names for love - agape is one worth checking. You're loved, grrl - at least by this reader and student of yours!

The vegetables I really didn't like as a child (Broccoli, Green Beans, Cauliflower) I can eat now though I only like Broccoli of those three.

As for the loved bit, as Annie wrote, it really depends on what type of love.

Aaagh! I've been tagged!!!

It might take me a couple of days to respond - my laptop's hard drive died last week, so I can't blog at home (not that it's easy anyway, what with The Beast).
