Tagged Twice

On the same meme, no less, by Madalyn and She'saCrafyOne. I guess I'm obliged...

Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those who are tagged need to write on their own blog those 7 facts as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

I did something similar a while ago, with knitting content. This one is all non-knitting content.

1. I'm a secular humanist. Check us out at the American Humanist Association website. For a while I just considered myself "not religious," but it turns out that what I believe matches up with humanism quite well.

2. I love bad daytime TV. Dr. Phil, People's Court, you name it. I even went to a taping of the Jerry Springer show.

3. I have no rhythm, epically, tragically so. I could not find a beat with a metronome. When attempting to dance, I have to focus very hard and watch the people around me.

4. I have a serious caffeine addiction, particularly in the form of Diet Coke. I have no intention of changing this.

5. I match my underwear to my outfit.

6. My apartment is a disaster area, but there are certain regions that must be in complete control. My DVD's must be alphabetized, and my clothes must be organized by type and color. I have no explanation or justification for this, but it's my apartment, so that's how it goes.

7. I am compulsively early. Tell me to be there at 10, and I will be there by 9:45. I will consider myself late if I am not there by 9:55. Aparently this is an oldest/only child trait.

Now the tagging other people part. I have to find the people who haven't been tagged yet, which is always tricky.

We'll try:
Amanda (and see if she actually does it)
Carrie Penny
Jess (who seriously needs to let us know what she's been doing with that new spinning wheel)

Also, Lorna and Kate, if you had blogs, I would so tag you. Get with the program here.

you have just validated me, because i too make quite the mess, except! my cd's and dvds? don't touch them. they are in order! and my closet? color coordinated, so don't hang up the blue pants in the green section! thank you very much.

Jen said...

Ok, I so match the underwear to the outfit, whenever possible. You are not alone! :)

I SO love the Diet Coke as well!! Caffeine choice #1, but Starbucks coffee is becoming a close 2nd!!

And I cant wait to see the finished product of the pink sparkly socks!! And condolences on the space invaders socks. I SO loved that game (yes I am that old), but the thought of fair isle in socks is just too much to consider.

robin said...

The humanist perspective is very interesting - in line with my beliefs as well!!

I match my underwear to itself (top and bottom) and to my outfit...

hi! :)
i have no rhythm too.:p
but i still love music

i just pass by your blog...and want to say "hello" :)

Carrie Penny said...

In reply to your comments, they are also more arranged by how much light they absorb, white, roygbiv, brown and black, it was the only way that I could think to do it...

I have a photographic memory for things that I put up... So I have things so organized in closets that I know what I put where so even w/o the label, I can see it. Now food and things like that do tend to keep labels, but my poor hubby never knows what lotion is unscented or scented...

kate said...

I, too, am compulsively, pathologically early (can I tell you what an exercise it was for me to be ten mintues late today?!). And have the same organized chaos filing system for my life. I rarely, if ever, coordinate my underwear, though. But I might start asking to see yours.

I do need a blog, I know it. Actually, I have one, I just need to write in it. And then tell people I've written in it.

Jess said...

Good ones, Sarah! Since you tagged me, I'll have to think really hard to find as interesting ones as yours. And I promise to update my blog (including making a link to yours, as I've intended to do for months!) ;-}

This explains why the hubby is always harassing me to be punctual. He called me multiple times once to tell me I was "late" 2 minutes before I was supposed to be there.

I used to alphabetize my CDs and am a slob, but lately I just can't do it. I found that I would listen to the same thing over and over if I didn't mix up the order. If I can't find what I think I want to listen to, then I'll listen to something else and be pleasantly surprised.
