The List of Eight

I've been tagged and am now compelled to provide, in no particular order, eight random facts/habits about myself that you may or may not know [or even care]. However, the rules that I have changed to suit myself dictate that I provide the rules first:

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who care to can write about their eight things in my comments section.

Here are mine:

1. I was a Lollypop Girl in the second grade Christmas pageant and I had to wear a red tutu, carry a giant sucker and sing and dance on stage. I was mortified.
2. I won the bicycle rodeo in 6th grade, acing out a lot of dumb boys in the process.
3. My favorite pet besides the two cats I have now was a donkey named Pepper when I was five.
4. Like Chari, I have a habit of wrapping my fingers around my thumb, only she does it when she's nervous and I do it when I sleep or otherwise relax.
5. I am an amateur expert on all aspects of both O.J. Simpson trials.
6. If my sheets and linens are not very, very soft, I cannot sleep.
7. I was conceived- and lost my virginity many years later- on July 4th.
8. I can order dinner from a menu in four different languages: English, Spanish, French and German.

I was an angel. Being a lollypop girl sounds like a hell of a lot more fun.

It was a red lollipop.
It wasn't fun. I was chunky and chunky and red satin tutus do not mix.

Lulu Maude said...

Did you sing "On the Good Ship..."?

karenzipdrive said...

No. We sang "The Lollypop Song."
The lyrics were predictable:
"All I am is a lolly lolly pop, lolly lolly pop, lolly lolly pop..." I forget the rest, just like I did when we sang it onstage.
