Eight random facts meme

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

Tagged by my good friend Paul, I must make with the posting and rejoin the blogging internets once again. I understand from his explanation that I’m to reveal eight random facts about me and then tag 8 people who are asked to do the same. So without further ado or explanation:

I’m deathly afraid of […]

Well, /duh/.

Turned on the TV when I got home, and the local news was on. Fortunate timing, otherwise I would have missed this absolute gem (And the emphasis? Is totally the newscaster’s.):

Ink.

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

I have, since I was about 12 or 13, been fascinated with ink. I draw, occasionally paint, and since I was in middle school frequently used my body as a canvas for sharpie marker and stick-on tattoo.
I toyed with the idea of real ink for years, shying away because of the needles involved, holding […]

Wow, that Duggar post just keeps on going. And when I think it can’t possibly get more nutty…. it does.
Hee. I love that Duggar post.

Amused me.

“Yeeeah, the only other information I have on killing evil elves involves the rolling of 20-sided dice.”
So sayeth the hot goth assistant on Blood Ties (that horrible vampire soap opera on Lifetime that I can’t stop TiVoing).

Rediscovering bands.

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

Another side effect of going through my entire music collection to import it into (I know, shaddup R.) iTunes is that I’ve rediscovered a lot of dusty old CDs from the bottom of the shelf. Things I haven’t listened to in years. Bands I truly do love but just… forgot for a […]

Lawnmowin’ mix.

Monday, May 7th, 2007

There must be a mix for everything now. S. is so right. Mowing the lawn is /so much/ less horrible with a soundtrack. Mine includes:

Shiny Toy Guns - We are […]

The first random 10.

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

I am of course waiting for it to explode in my ears or catch fire or whatnot, but I finally gave in. Stupid new music technology. Horribly cute little practical thing. I own an iPod. R. would be so displeased. So far all I can manage to hate are the default headphones. Dammit.
And, of […]
