Me me me

I have been tagged by my blogger pal the Well Dressed Librarian. I don't usually do the "8 facts" meme because it's freaking hard to think up things about oneself without the context of a larger post in mind. However! I'm participating in this meme for three reasons and three reasons alone. One, us well-dressed librarianfolk need to support each other in our fabulousness. Two, WDL is one of my favorite blog people. Three, he tagged me by calling me a "gorgeous celebrity," and guys, flattery is like GOLD to me.

Here's the rules of engagement:
Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 4 people and posts their blog names, then hopes they notice they have been tagged and continue this chain ad nauseum.

1. You know how Joel McHale always jumps into the tv frame at the beginning of that show "The Soup"? I love that. I wish I could just jump into people's line of sight that way. Can you imagine this at the reference desk? No one at the desk then HEY! A librarian shoots in from the side? That would rock.

2. At the end of interviews on talk shows, sometimes the guests are so naive about how talk shows work that they get up and leave at the end of their segment. If you're a big star, you know that you don't get up and leave when the segment is over. You sit there and soak in the applause, the show cuts to commercial, and THEN you get up and leave, off-camera. The pre-mature leavers are often non-celebrity guests. And when they don't know that they are pre-leaving, I feel all motherly towards them. The sheer unjadedness of these people, not knowing talk show rules, touches me. I know. It's weird.

3. I make up swear words. For instance, if I drop something, you may hear me say this: "punk ass kibble sniffer!" That's one of my regulars. What it means, I couldn't really tell you, but it works for me.

4. I have a stomach of steel. I do not have problems of the Pepto variety. Granted, I eat pretty healthy, so maybe that's it, but even when I don't, my stomach is ok. I have only barfed once in my life (TMI, I know) and it was actually very poetic because it was on the bed of a guy that was a total dick to me. That's a story for another post.

5. I have never seen a Tom Cruise movie in its entirety.

6. You know how some women mother people? I tend to sister people.

7. I have never been camping. I would like to go, but I have a secret fear that I will HAAAAAATE it. And then what would that say about me as a person? Will it say I am a nature-hater? I don't want that. At the same time, when I am not sleeping in my own bed, I enjoy such things as room service and cable.

8. My closest friends my entire life have been girls and gay boys. At this point, I am at my lifelong peak of hetero boy close friendships. I have three.

I have a weird thing about tagging people for memes. Like I don't want to be pushy and tell them what to do with their blogs, you know? So, I'm tagging four people, but it's sort of half-hearted. I won't be upset if you don't acknowledge the tagging.

The woman who brought bullhonkey back.
The woman who always smiles at me during meetings.
The woman who I must have coffee with someday.
Coffee with this one too. She rocks.

Kiss the rings, I'm out.

Oooh! I promise to respond to your tagging, as soon as I am free of the future in-laws. If I am still living at that point. And coherent. Living and coherent are my only requirements.

Omigod! I almost spit out my granola when I read your post this morning because I was laughing so hard! Okay, I know my email of topics was a desparate measure, but I had to do SOMETHING! I promise to try my best to get back on schedule. Oh, and I checked out my legs again last night. I still say the right one is a little crooked below the knee, but I'm getting used to it!

I have a stomach of steel, too!
And you'd love my kind of camping. My Dad has a great big camper with a bedroom, satellite TV, microwave, etc. You can do all the outdoorsy stuff and enjoy a comfortable night's sleep and NOT freeze your ass off or get eaten by a bear. It's the only way to camp. Some tent people scorn campers, but I have as good a time as they do...probably better.

On occasion, when I'm worried I'm not going to do well on a date, I'll write down a list of topics to talk about on a notecard and put it in my pocket.

I've never had to use one of those notecards yet, but I'm not beyond it.

you know what? I have been camping,I used to go all the time as a kid and I could go as an adult, but the thing is I just don't want to. I have a bed, it is comfy, when its too hot out and the humidity is stifling my very soul, the bedroom has AC. I had to explain this to a friend who recently invited me camping. He judged me! I don't care, just say no to camping! :)

I always feel terrible for the people who try to get up after their segment is over, too! And the ones who forget to clip the microphone on. Probably because I know I would be so nervous and overwhelmed that I would forget to do both.

Wow, you've never seen any Tom Cruise movies. I'm sure you already know this but you're really not missing anything. I've decided that Tom Cruise movies are not good, but the clips make it seem like they would be. It's all in the clips--some very iconic scenes. But, the movies? Pure crap. Backpedal: of course, I will always love Cocktail because it gave us Kokomo by the Beach Boys.
