Eight Random Things

Meg, I’d be a little peeved that I’ve been tagged (because I really should be going through my voice mail, etc.), but it’s my first tagging. So, I feel honored and loved. Here goes:

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

  1. I am currently a month and week behind on my church’s year of the Bible thingy. (About 100+ of us are signed up to read through the Bible together this year.) For the month, I blame Zora’s eating habits: I usually read while she has her early morning milk. But when we had the allergy scare, that whole routine got a little messed up for a month. Then, I jumped back into the scheduled readings and I’m slowly making up that month. For the week, I blame the youth group trip. I was too tired to see straight the whole week.
  2. Trail mix makes me really gassy. I was reminded of this a few days ago while hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park.
  3. I prefer ankle-less running socks to tube socks or (horrors!) the ones that go partway up the ankle.
  4. I got almost no knitting done on this trip. Too tired (see # 1).
  5. I need to get better at going to sleep earlier in the evening. There’s a window between 8 and 9 when I think I could conk out, but then I often stay up pater doing nothing in particular and suddenly it’s 11. I am not one of these people who can live on 5 hours (or less) of sleep a night.
  6. Two weeks ago, I was in the park doing crunches in the middle of a run. Zora was snoozing in her stroller. I felt great about myself for finally exercising. Then some guy came up and started accosting me for doing crunches because they would ruin my back. This really ticked me off.
  7. I’m going to the beach for July 4th. I can’t wait.
  8. And, in honor of my 8th wedding anniversary, Erik is the only man I’ve ever dated or kissed. And this does not bother me at all, because he’s the best (even if he’s 30 now!) How cool is that?

I’m a lazy tagger, so I tag only 5 folks. (There was no promise that some terrible calamity would come upon me if I didn’t make it to 8.) I tag: Mary Beth; ppb; Teri; Meika; and Hieronymous (though I take no responsibility if he refuses to participate).

    Hey! Thanks for the tag!

    I said that in your last post but I realized I was in the wrong place. Oops!

    I double-tagged Meika.
