Seven Things

I've been tagged for this meme by both Marilyn and Ruby, so I guess I better hop to it, eh?

Here are the rules:

Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving comments on their blogs.

I will do my best not to duplicate things I already posted on the 100 things meme, but I'm not going to reread it to make sure, so bear with me!

  1. I have a black thumb. For a biologist, it's pretty embarrassing. I kill houseplants. I wish it weren't so. My grandmother had a beautiful pot-garden in her house (wait, um, I mean, she grew lots of plants in pots, not that she grew pot!), and I often think about it while I'm killing my latest victim...
  2. I got my nose pierced when I was 21, after thinking about it for about three years throughout college. My dad had a fit when he saw it, calling me a "hippie bohemian." Anyway, I have a tiny stud in there now that some people don't even notice, but I can't take it out. There's a ball on the inside of the hole that is larger than the hole. Whenever I have a medical procedure, it complicates and confounds everything!

  3. I am madly in love with my husband of nearly 8 years. We've had our ups, and we've definitely had our downs, but that never changes. I hope it never does and we grow old happily together. (He's already old, but... hehe)

  4. I am always finding food inside my bra. I have big boobs that make my shirt stick out, and whenever I drop food, down there it goes. Good for a snack later!

  5. I have a crush on Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm. He is my unwitting boyfriend. If you ever meet him, say hello for me and profess my undying love.

  6. I love to honk my horn at people. I've gotten better about flipping them off, but I still honk. I am a native New Yawka, so I come by it honestly. BEEEEEEEEEEP!

  7. I do not like to play board games with my children. It frustrates and annoys me. I love playing with them, don't get me wrong, and I am a fan of games of all kinds. I am just not good at being patient with them for breaking the rules, accidentally or on purpose, and constantly having to explain how to play. It drives me nuts. All the board games are in a closet up in the Sophie's room, and we rarely get them down. I kind of feel guilty about it.

Well, that's it! I am going to tag everyone who has never done this meme, because I have seen it everywhere on the blogosphere, and I don't know anyone who hasn't done it yet, that I can think of! If it's you, please do the meme and comment here so I can go see! Thanks! ♥
