Me: I has a hammer!


Like a good little girl, I'm supposed to be working. However, I am not a good little girl, I'm a rather mercurial blogger, so I'm wasting time.

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc.

Rather like wolfychan, I doubt there's much I either haven't touched on or that anyone really would care to hear about, but if there's something you'd like to know, go ahead and ask!

And from peridium:
a. List seven of your habits/quirks or seven facts about yourself.
b. Tag seven people to do the same.
c. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say you tag 'whoever wants to do it.'

1. I'm not a dedicated musician, I'm not a huge fan of any particular band or genre, but I can't go a day without listening to my iPod. I've dragged it literally almost everywhere I ever go: camping, school, my job, and once on a safari in South Africa.

2. Basically all my inanimate objects have names. The car I drive most regularly goes by the name "Baby," in that I go "Oh, good baby, good job, that's my girl!" when we make it up a particularly treacherous hill or there's that weird delayed shift in transmission at around 35 mph. My computer is Elijah; my iPod is St. Jimmy; my harp is Hermia. I used to have a phone named Gabriel, but I upgraded and never named the new one.

3. If you've been around this journal for any length of time you probably know this, but I've got a tattoo and seven piercings, and I'm not sure why that's all I have at this point in time.

4. I've lived in the same house my entire life. It's a blue suburban two-story deal, and it's a nice comfortable house, except in the winter when the furnace decides that it just doesn't want to heat the top story at all (which is where my room is).

5. I eat salt plain. I've been doing this for as long as I can remember, just because I liked the taste of it. When I was a kid I got a battery of tests done on me and the doctor came back a bit confused: no sodium deficiency, no nutrition problems at all. Apparently I just really liked salt, so I was allowed to eat as much of it as I want. For all that, I prefer my food mild and salted to taste.

6. I once dated my former state senator's grandson. I didn't know about this until after we'd broken up.

7. Heights are absolutely the most frightening thing in the world to me. I'm no big fan of spiders either, but I can't stand to even watch people be up in high places, and I've freaked out from standing on a chair before.
