Seven Random Things

Via Stephanie at the SuperSecretVault (Arwen, please may I have a linking lesson? I probably shouldn’t even have internet access, I am so bad at remembering stuff like this), here’s a meme: Seven random things about me.

1) I have a bruise on my ribcage right now. I slipped while wearing socks and fell on the microwave. No alcohol was involved. It sort of looks like a sloppy hickey.

2) I talk to fishing boats when I cross the Burrard Street Bridge. I see who’s moored in False Creek and say hi. Sometimes I do it out loud by accident.

3) When I was a little girl, I wanted to be the whale feeder at the aquarium.

4) I don’t like the new, energy-efficient Christmas lights. They vibrate in my field of vision and seem aggressive and manic, like meth users made of light. Not festive.

5) I look good in hats. Every hat I’ve ever put on my head. This is not vanity. Once I stuck a colander on my head in a bid to prove my idiocy. It was nauseatingly cute.

6) Yesterday I joined a ‘Photo-A-Day’ group for 2008. I am naively optimistic that I’ll be able to manage that, and that I’ll figure out how to post photos here.

7) I love making people laugh. It lets me see who they really are.

I’m tagging no one. But if you want to, post your seven things.

    There’s a button that looks like a chain in your editing box. Highlight something and push that, see if it pops up.

    You have a laptop, yes? Bring it over some time, and we’ll set you up with a “Oh, that’s WAY easier” kinda program for posting. Rill rill quick.

    this site might help. Ignore the first two steps; the third is what you want.

    Also: you fell on a microwave. Wow.

    Thanks, Cheesefairy! Re, the microwave: Yeah. I rule HARD.

    I highly doubt you’re too dumb. In fact, I would suggest of all the possible explanations, that’s the least likely.

    Did a box pop up?

    That button does look like a chain. It’s a chain link fence. Oh my god, I just got that.

    I, too, wanted to be a whale feeder. Then I went to high school and took biology and was like, this is hard. Then I majored in English.

    Haha, Stephanie, I struggled through the biology and tghen they said, “Oh, to get into sciences at university, you have to have chem and physics.” I cried a lot nand went into general arts.
