Random and Weird

I've been Memed again....and the task i've been charged with is this:

Link to your tagger and post rules.
Share 7 facts about yourself, some random and some weird.
Tag 7 people at the end of post and list their names.
Let them know they were tagged by a comment on their blog.

btw, i find all of these to be both random and weird. but you be the judge.

fact one: when i was in fifth grade i lived in florida. at school one day i slipped and fell in someone else's vomit in the bathroom. back in class i was told i could not be excused to go home and change my clothes. i've hated florida ever since. i don't even capitalize it.

fact two: i was a virgin until i was 25 years old. and not just a Meme Virgin either.

fact three: i find music of The Partridge Family to be at times interesting, compelling, and poignant.

fact four: my childhood friend Jeff and I tried to make a super-8 science fiction movie called "Metamorphosis in the Fourth Dimension". we co-wrote it, i was the star, and he the cinematographer, director and producer.

fact five: my maternal grandmother once commented to my mother that she thought i was effeminant. when pressed for her reasoning, "mamaw" noted my long hair, the fact that i carried a backpack around everywhere, and the way i walked as evidence.

fact six: in my teen years, instead of partying down with the other kids, i used to hang out at a coffee shop (a Bob's Big Boy to be precise) and read, write, drink hot tea, and chat up the waitresses, some of whom i had crushes on. i felt like some kind of intellectual at the time. man, being a teenager really sucks.

fact seven: i'm convinced that i have many repressed memories of my childhood. i don't know what exactly happened to make this so, and i don't want to know. ignorance is bliss, ask the president.

you're tagged Kathy, Groove momma, and The Noble Savage (new e-quaintances from NaBloPoMo), Heather D, Jennyfur, Molly, and Heather J.

Cool! I think I'll save this for November, though.

Happy blogging!
