Ooh, Pick Me, Pick Me!

Jennifer tells me these crazy kids have got some meme going around, where you’re supposed to reveal eight random facts about yourself and then get eight other people to do the same. I think you get cursed with bad luck if you break the chain.

There are those who insist true randomness cannot exist. Or so I’m told, I can’t be bothered to look it up. Assuming they’re wrong (something I assume about most people), here are mine:

1. I once had a vestigial gill surgically removed. Despite that, my existence does not prove Darwin wrong.

2. I hitchhiked around the country with a friend after high school. There were at least three times on that trip I should have died.

3. I read “Animal Farm” to a four-year-old. He hasn’t been right since.

4. My best friend and I met in 7th-grade when I kicked him. Neither of us has matured.

5. My dream is to eat one kind of every animal before I die.

6. I hate to fly but I’ve visited forty-nine states. I have been banned from returning to forty-two of them.

7. I wish I’d grown up to be a member of the Rat Pack. I can’t sing, dance, or act, but I’m good at drinking and gambling.

8. Most of what you think about me is wrong.

Now, tag, you’re it:

Crap, I've been Snag tagged.

Mandos said...

Oh no! Snag has attached a meme to me!

Crap.

Everyone's already been tagged. I'll have to start on my imaginary friends.

Oh, yes, I have imaginary friends. Sometimes I think ALL my friends have been imaginary.

do you break your dream out by genus and species, or common names?

Not blogging well is painful enough, but not blogging well to save Snag from an eternal curse is something or other.
