7 Meme

Okay I, like Lindsey, have no clue what "meme" actually means (or even how you pronounce it. I have done a meme before though.) Nevertheless, I've been tagged by Kristen, who's been leaving comments on everyone's blog telling them they're tagged. (Seriously it cracked me up today, checking each friend's blog only to find Kristen's "You've been tagged, check it out!" message. Heehee!)

Here are 7 random facts about me:

1.) I'm an only child.
2.) I wish I had the guts to get a nose ring. I love them but I'm not sure that I could pull it off. (Maybe this is some sort of pre-cursor to a mid-life crisis.)
3.) I hate scary amusement-park rides and refuse to go on them.
4.) I get a real kick out of "Days of Our Lives" and tune in every now and again. Kristen and I used to get together for lunch and watch it--good times!
5.) I am a complete klutz. For example, I worked at Taco Bell one summer in high school and refused to spend the money to buy special slip-proof shoes. (When water and grease mix it's rather slippery so they require you to buy the shoes). I was picking up the trays from out in the "dining area" and all of a sudden I totally ate it, the trays went flying, I was on my back. YES!
6.) I hope to one day tour a morgue. I'm totally serious.
7.) I can't stand my thick, wavy hair and I pray that someday the chi straightening process will cost less than $500.

I'm supposed to tag 7 people. Sooooo...

i love the teeny tiny nose rings, or studs i guess. i think they actually look really cool so you have my support.
i've always (for at least 10 years) wanted a little red and turquoise star tatoo! maybe a bit too permanent?

Brianna Heldt said...

Kristen I figured you'd be right there with me at the morgue! (Remember those books from the Parable about the insect death guy?)

Lindsey I know, I love the tiny studs! I've also thought about a tattoo (an Ethiopian cross on my ankle.) But I'm with you, the permanence is a bit scary. If you get a tattoo maybe I'll get a nose ring...:)

Owlhaven said...

meme, some children also say it here in Belgium, it's omre like a name for a mother, grandmother or my son says it to the Daisy of his daycare centre

Erica said...

I think nose rings are cool too! I got one last summer and yes - it was my mid life crisis at 28. :)

Oh and can I tour the morgue with you too? I've always wanted to do that even if it seems a bit morbid.

Had to weigh in about the nose ring, I just got one for my 31st birthday. It was something I wanted for a long time...go for it!
