8 random things memememe

I've been tagged by Jill - I think this used to be 7 random things... It's funny when you sit down to do this, you can't think at all - blackhole...but then I'll be at work and think "damn, that could have been a "random thing"! so here goes...

1. This may not be random, but I love The Office. I quote it at work and contemplate putting my office neighbor's stapler in jello. I think I should do it. I'll post about it when I do. I had better buy a decoy stapler in case it ruins it...I mean how couldn't it ruin the staple immersing it in gelatin? Better use Knox blocks since they are more like jigglers...I have put entirely too much thought into this. After my pal Paul finds his jello-stapler we can "hug it out, bitch!"

2. I hate airplanes. I don't even like to see them. If I ever have to fly again I will have to pretend I am in that episode of the Beverly Hillbillies where they think they are on a bus - or be medicated. or drunk.

3. I'm addicted to fountain soda - it's just not the same from a can, it's different somehow. I get soda so frequently at a local gas station that I was able to convince the owner to put in a caffiene free diet cola line. I am a proud "regular" - when I was a child and my dad was a regular at "Super America", I envied him. I felt like a celebrity's child getting Grebe's doughnuts with Frank because everyone knew him - little did I know it was because he bought cigarettes or beer or lottery tickets every day - he was my dad - that mades him a super hero. period.

4. I know a lot about serial killers. I used to be excited about every piece of new information I would learn about Ted Bundy. I looked at pictures of him after he was electrocuted, is that sick? I don't think pornography drove him to do it, but that's what he claims. Now, I think my interest is creepy. And I do not believe in the death penalty.

5. I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult. I just thought I liked to multi-task.

6. When I was in the 8th grade I took a picture of Vince Neil of the band Motley Crue with me to the hair salon, I wanted to look like a rocker. It was an abysmal failure. I am just not meant to have good hair. (until I met Ana as reported in my post last Saturday! um, she rocks more than Motley Crue!)

7. I realized tonight that when I sit in church I scope out my "sign of the peace" peeps - who is near me, who is also alone. Nothing like turning around and no one will shake your hand...drag. I thought that was kind of funny that I sought out my "go to peace people". And then I imagined my pastor coming down the aisle like Joey Fattone on Singing Bee and putting a microphone to our lips while we sang to hymns - like a game show which brings me to...

8. I love game shows. I'm known as the "word-champ" at work. Words and game shows - like Lingo and Chain Reaction are a match made in heaven. I also like Jeopardy...though I never liked the Price Is Right. I also like ridiculous dating shows like Love Connection or the racey Blind Date or Elimidate. ew, I know.

Okay, now I guess I am supposed to tag 3 people - now please don't feel obligations but I am just going to nominate Nell, Jodi and Marisol.

And for fun, I nominate my husband, Bill.

OMG your 8 things are wonderful - really got me cracking up this morning!

I love the office too - you so should put Paul's stapler in jello! I think all would appreciate that prank!

I love fountain peeps too! Really don't like pop in a plastic bottle - taste weird.

I confess I used to read books about serial killers when I was in my late teens - I feel strange saying that too. I was a Chi Omega at WMU and we had a 'door man' - we were the only sororitey on Campus with one. His job was to be there at night and into the early morning to make sure that us (drunk) girls got home and inside OK - we had the door man because of Ted Bundy's insident at the Chi Omega sororty house!

OK, your comment about ADHD being compared to multi-tasking put me over the edge! That is hillarious!

A Vince Neil hair do, OMG, too funny! He did have pretty hair though so I don't blame you ;)

I love the Office, too! We put a cell phone in the ceiling at work. It was hilarious. Be sure and turn down the volume. It takes longer for your target to figure out what's going on. So evil! But funny!

I totally agree with you about fountain soda. It has something extra. My husband thinks that I am nuts. :)
