Randomly Random

So the bold, beautiful, badass Badoozie tagged me for a random factoid meme a while back and I'm just now getting around to it.

Why ? Well because I'm either a)lazy b)didn't want to do it c)crazy busy and have little time to think about seven fun little factoids or d) all of the above.

But I figured I'd better get to it. Or much like the evil that befalls you if you fail to forward a chain letter I'm pretty sure something bad will happen to me if I fail to complete this meme-especially since Ms. Badoozie is prone to stabbing people .

So here it is in all its glory seven randomly, random facts about yours truly:

1) I was a vegetarian for 9 years. In fact I still enjoy eating non meat meals. But I gotta say I've grown to love me some meat (my sister is probably hurling right now. Sorry Worker Twin)

2)Punctuation and I don't get along. Especially commas. I want to put them everywhere. Thank goodness English teachers aren't reading my blog.

3)I was voted Most Expressive/Creative in High School. How sad that I'm old and unimaginative now.

4)I like to watch true crime documentaries (A&E's Cold Case Files, American Justice and 48 Hours Investigates).I'm always appalled and disgusted at what I'm seeing and hearing yet I continue to watch them.

5)I've been known to go to a Monster Jam (Monster Truck Rally) event every now and then and truly have a good time ( I have hubby to thank for that- it wasn't really something I dug before meeting Mr. Worker Mommy)

6)I often smile at people I don't know when walking down the street. I usually find people to be quite friendly in the Seattle area but when I'm on the East Coast visiting my sisters or just last week when I was in Vegas people looked at me like I'd just dropped in from Mars when I flashed them my pearlies. I think they might have thought I was going to mug them.

7)I have a favorite number. I'm not all obsessive and weird about it. I've just decided the number 12 rocks. After all yours truly arrived on the scene 12/12. And my 40th birthday just happens to be on 12/12/12. Often times when I look up at the clock it just happens to be 12:12...(cue Twilight Zone music).

Now that I've sufficiently bored the bejeezus out of you I do want to tag 7 others...just 'cause its fun to know random stuff about people.

So I tag: Brillig, Southern Fried Mom, Lollie , Ally , Domestically Disabled Girl, Queen Heather from the Island of Shake Shake and Jennifer aka Binky Bitch
(please, please oblige me y'all for I have no other source of entertainment at the moment)


Happy 4th to One & All!

Monster truck shows? hehe

I am over comma user...we must start a club for it! It truly is a sickness.

Brillig said...

Hey, I'll join the over-comma-user-club. It's right up my alley.

Thanks for the taggy-tag. I'll get to it... sometime. Really I will.

I love the image in my mind of you mugging east-coasters. Hilarious.

I like meat sometimes...most of our meals include it. But I could really live without it if I had to. I'm very picky about what I will eat.

I have a thing for the number "4" - can you tell?

Lollie said...

Well, how convenient is this? WhiskeyMarie just got tagged and she didn't want to tag other unless they volunteered, so I did. The theme is a riff off her answers (inserting my own of course!), maybe, now, I'll incorporate, you know, some of your answers (and,, a few extra commas). So, I'll get to that now, and kill two pigeons with one boulder.

Ally said...

Oh, the dreaded tag! I'll get you back, WM (bwahh hah hah...)

So maybe I'll see you at the fireworks show tonight. I'll just look for the one with the big grin...

~JJ! said...

Monster trucks huh???

Badass...

Queen Heather said...

I lurve me a common or 15 too!

Thanks for the tag!

Ba Doozie said...

well shucks! I forgot I tagged you. I too like to use lots of comma's. I usually have to go back and eliminate them. I feel bad about stabbing people so I tried to explain that today on my post

Cherann said...

Maybe you like the number twelve because of The Electric Company...

1, 2, 3, 4, 5....
6, 7, 8, 9, 10...

ELEVEN, TWELVE!

Worker Mommy said...

Lene & JJ - Re: Monster Trucks - When hubby first said he wanted me to go I was thinking "absolutely not"...but I'm the kind of gal who'll try anything once and I gotta say I got a bit of a thrill when those gargantuan trucks started destroying everything in their wake.
What that says about me...I don't know...probably something I should explore, but I think I'm a little afraid to find out :)

Wacky Mommy said...

I loved that!

Whiskeymarie said...

I, have, comma, issues, too.

I love any true-crime show (except the "haunted" ones- I hate those). If there's a "forensic files" marathon on Court tv, I'm pretty much done for the day.

Jennifer aka Binky Bitch said...

Thank goodness you've given me something to write about. I've got a blog blast post for tomorrow, but after that I was completely out of ideas!

And you are very imaginative!

Um, but the monster trucks? No way!

Worker Mommy said...

There I go catching it on the monster trucks again. I knew I shouldn't have put that it there.
:)

Seriously though you'd be suprised how much pent up agression you can release at these things.
