6 Things About Me

Elizabeth at the aptly named As Usual, I Need More Bookshelves blog tagged me for this. Oh the fun of talking about myself!

1) I hate it when people refer to babies as its. This right here is a perfect example. Um, Shiloh is a she, not an it. Oh how we objectify celebrities!

2) When I get a new CD, I usually find one song that hooks me and then listen to it a million or so times in a row. I can listen to one song only in my car for more than a solid week.

3) I hate getting my hair cut and styled. This is one of those artificial social situations. People always think I'm ten years younger than I am. I have a baby face. Also, they never understand my job. So I always have to explain that I've actually been graduated from college for awhile now, and no the people that I work with are not necessarily stupid.

4) When I went to Japan, I was terrified to do karaoke. I imagined all karaoke was like that scene in My Best Friend's Wedding. It's nothing like that in Japan, and I quickly realized it was one of my favorite ways to burn through 50 bucks and an evening. I miss it, though I've done it a bit at parties here.

5) The first time I got contacts, I couldn't put them in and had to leave the eye doctors after a good 45 minutes of trying without my contacts. Now I put them in half asleep with no mirror. It's weird how our brains work, huh?

6) I am really inarticulate in person. I can never express myself well, and stumble all over my words. I far prefer to write and hope that RL friends feel like they know me better from reading my blog. Since, you know, I can't express myself well through talking. ;)

The rules of this meme are:
Link to the person who tagged you in your blog post
Write your six random things
List the rules somewhere in your blog post
Tag 6 more lucky people to join in the fun
Let them know they've been chosen by commenting on their blog
Let the person who tagged you know that you've posted your entry

I'm going to break the rule of tagging more people because I feel I've tagged you all out. But, if you want to play grab the meme and let me know you did so in comments and I'll link to you. :)
