Tagged by furious_mold

Last week, I got meme tagged by furious_mold. I promised I would do it when I got a moment to sit still and think. I still haven't actually found that kind of time, but I thought maybe I could do it in fits and starts while I was at work today.

To that end:

I will write seven facts about myself and then tag seven people down below. They will write seven things about themselves. I've done so many of these, so I'll have to dig deep - maybe even be silly. Silly, but honest.

1. Christmas music is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. Anytime I hear a Christmas song playing at work (we never put on the Christmas station, but they slip the occasional Christmas song onto the other stations), I immediately go into the office and change the channel.

2. I'm allergic to cedar.

3. This book is dedicated to me.

4. I met my first serious* boyfriend in group therapy. Group therapy was really a lot of fun -- very Bob Newhart Show-esque.

5. I didn't learn how to drive until I was 23**.

6. I love cross dressers. Ooh, baby, love 'em.

7. I think probably most people who read my journal know this already, but I used to be a junkie. It's not exactly something I put down on job applications, but it's also not something that I'm ashamed of***.

I would like to tag a few people, but since we've done a lot of these already I don't expect anyone to follow through. It's OK!


* There was one guy before him -- Aaron, a boy I knew at summer camp. We never did anything more than hold hands and get teased a lot. I think I still count him as my technical *first* boyfriend, even though we never even kissed.
** OK, technically, I got my drivers license two days before I turned 23, but you get the point.
*** Which doesn't mean that I'm not ashamed of some of the things I did while under the influence, but I've no shame over the simple *fact* of having been a drug addict.

Thank you for doing this. I always feel weird about "tagging".

Thanks for sharing too.

I feel the same way about Christmas music, even parody songs.

I was never a junkie, but have a "drug-ish" past myself. A few people who are very close to me have been involved with heroin. I'm glad to hear that you're not ashamed of it, you shouldn't be. (I have a lot to say about this stuff, but I'll save it for another time - in a screened comment-...maybe.)

There are moments when I feel twinges of shame and then I remember that it was the early 90s and frickin' everybody was doing it.

It was still a stupid thing to do, mind you, but at least I had lots of company.

I don't know seven people on this...Maybe later I will transfer to Myspace
1. The doctor made up my time of birth. I was all cleaned up and he realized that he forgot to look at the time. This really sucks because rising sign passes from one sign to another around the time my mother says I was born.

2. Names my mother considered for me Lorielle or Zebulon (the ones she went to the delivery room with were my name and Adam Nicholas.)

3. I'm scared of driving in Pittsburgh. When I frequented the area, I drove to Hope's and she drove. Driving in Montreal is better in my opinion.

4. I have had three major surgical procedures in the past six months.

5. I have the coolest birthday in the year I was born. July 9, 1979 and I graduated HS in 1997

6. I turned out to be the other woman by the person I consider my first boyfriend. (I never really got a clear answer on the title...since he lied to me and to her...I will take the damn title, too. She was actually in junior high and I was a junior in high school. I actually got dumped again for a junior high kid when I was 18)

7. I love history. I love it so much that I do not watch the history channel because I know I could watch it all day and nothing would get done. The kids would be like "momma, we're sooo huuuunnnggryy" and I would never leave the history channel.
