Seven of Memes

Got a tag from Jenn, and while I don't mind doing a meme, I do tend to try to overthink things instead of just having fun with it. Here are the rules:

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write their own blog with their 7 things as well as these rules. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. Remember to leave a comment for them letting them know they have been tagged and to read your blog.

Since it's all about 7, I tried to incoporate a 7 theme. See? Overthought and in the end, probably not all that entertaining. Oh well. It's what you get.

1. Seven fun things I did this past weekend:
  • Volunteer work with my Therapy Dog, Rusty.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean with some friends we hadn't seen in a long time.
  • Late dinner at Canter's after the movie.
  • Late lunch at the Burbank Porto's.
  • Yummy Thai food dinner.
  • Got a new, more up-to-date cell phone. Yes, I may send you hamster photos now.
  • More volunteer work at a theater which involved selling snacks to a few cool people.

2. Seven and the Ragged Tiger is not my favorite Duran Duran album, but it always brings back some good memories of 8th and 9th grade. And they looked so glamorous and hot on the cover!

3. I guess it's not really an unknown fact that I love writing and reading haiku. I tend to stick with the format of 5-7-5, which is pretty simple for me. I discovered a fun haiku site yesterday, that any fans of the poetry, or fellow Twitter folks, might appreciate.

4. Two of my favorite numbers are 5 and 2, which happen to add up to 7. For alarm clocks and publishing times on my blog I like to use increments of 5. However, for my car stereo volume has to be an even number.

5. This fun fact isn't really about me, but did you know that the 1 dog year=7 human years isn't quite accurate. I guess I come in to this by being annoyed when people think it is. Also, I'm practically running an old folks home as I have a 98-year-old and a 70-year-old. Rusty's only 49 though, so he keeps the other two young, I suppose.

6. Seven places* I've lived other than Los Angeles:

  • Richmond, Virginia
  • Galveston, Texas
  • La Marque, Texas
  • Downingtown, Pennsylvania
  • Ithaca, New York
  • Rochester, New York
  • Jacksonville, Florida

*I had to leave off a couple.

7. I'm a fairly picky eater. Here are seven things I despise:

  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Fish
  • Mushrooms
  • Meatloaf
  • Cream cheese
  • Onions

I tag: Ren, AC, Aggie, Madretz, Brenda, Mad Doctor, and TiggerLarue.

Jesus Christ you take your homework seriously.

#7 sounds like the world's most disgusting recipe.

i think you despise practically my entire food repertoire. for example, i had 6 of the 7 mentioned just today. but not mixed all together.

I will attempt to get round to doing this at the weekend chick ... 7 interesting things I did? Eek, scratches head in bewilderment! lol!

What was the event where you volunteered and met the few cool people?

The Mad Doctor said...

Okay; I'm taking the challenge but I will not be as interesting as you are. Be forewarned.

Jodi said...

@Jenn: So, you won't be adding #7 to your recipe site?

@ac: Oh no!

@alissa: An actress from a poplular tv show did a comedy show at the Steve Allen Theater, where I do some volunteer stuff.

@The Mad Dr.: I dunno. You scientists are pretty interesting to me.
