I Was Tagged (Over Two Weeks Ago)

I'm a little slow, but I'm finally responding to the tagging by Jennifer who I think is one of my newer readers.

So I'm supposed to tag seven more people and post the rules....but I think I'll just tag Ella and Billy. So now I'm to list seven weird and/or random things about myself. I'm sure you all feel like you know enough about me, but here I go anyway. I was tagged after all.

1. I used to love and listen to Alanis Morissette so much that my friends refused to ride in my car unless I promised to not play her CD. My affinity for her music began the moment I heard "You Oughta Know" as it reflected my feelings perfectly since I'd just found out my high school boyfriend had cheated on my over spring break. I proceeded to see her in concert three times and listen to her songs on repeat for years.

2. I had my first bowl of chili this week. Chili has just never appealed to me, but this week my roommate's adoptive mom brought us a huge container of white chili and upon trying it, I've discovered I love it. I also discovered that homemade banana pudding with homemade cream and some crunchy chocolate stuff is unbelievable and can be consumed in mass quantities in one sitting.

3. I'm so nice that I tweezed my ex-boyfriend's Sampras's eyebrows for the two years following our break-up.

4. Carter and I have not kissed yet, and this is the first time I've ever been on four dates with someone and not done so. The weird thing is--I like it. I'm so less distracted and so much more in tune with who he is than wondering when we'll make out next:)

5. I build muscle quickly and have to watch my workouts and make sure I don't run too much, etc. or my legs will get so big that my jeans don't fit in the thighs. It's really not a cute look.

6. I love writing Christmas cards. It's such a wonderful time to reflect on my friendships and share my feelings of gratitude with them. Plus it's a good excuse to break out the magic markers.

7. Speaking of magic markers, I took notes with them in high school and college. My college algebra professor told another professor (who happened to be my great-uncle thus my knowing about his comment) that "the girl with the highest grade in my class takes all of her notes in markers; it's the oddest thing." I kept the markers in a Hello Kitty box and just found that the bright colors made school, especially classes like math, more entertaining for me.

p.s. I'm thankful for a quiet night at home with my Christmas tree, pumpkin pie Yankee candle, caramel truffle coffee, West Wing DVD, pjs, Christmas colored M&Ms, and cards. This is the life.

So you were the person in class with screechy sounding magic markers which would make my spine crawl!

I like sending Christmas cards too. Who knows, you might get one from me... :)

That's nice that you and Carter haven't kissed yet, it'll make it all the more special. It took Ray three dates to kiss me. I was like "Kiss me already!" in my head hehehe

Your evenings sound great. Last night, a friend came over we had pot roast that had cooked ALL day in the crock pot, cupcakes and watched Love Actually. it was the best time! I love this time of year.

I wish I liked sending Christmas cards... I don't. We are thinking about sending Valentine's day cards instead this year!

1. I feel the same way about Alanis. I don't like her more recent stuff as much. I hate to pigeon hole her but I'm sorry, I just like my Alanis angry. VERY angry.

2. I'm not sure what to say about the fact that you've never had chili. Also white chili is delish.

3. That? Is seriously hilarious!

4. I think that would be such a great experience of getting to know someone without that wondering and pondering and contemplating about a kiss for like the last hour and a half of a date. I'll definitely be looking forward to updates on this front!

5. I've had that look with my thighs from playing soccer and I have to agree, I don't find it to be very flattering on myself either.

7. ME TOO. I had a Winnie the Pooh box I toted all mine around in. And honestly, I don't know what it was, but the classes I used them in (and I had the cutest, brightest, most colorful notes ever), those were the ones I made the best grades in.

Loved learning all this new stuff about you Ally! Have a great week!

Taking notes with markers was the most artsy-fartsy thing you've ever done. :P

You commented one of my post like 4 months ago so I coment back. We could get to know really interesting facts about you. I was also tagged and I also did it.

ella said...

What's up with the missing blog entry? It showed up on my google reader but has since gone *poof*!

Ryane said...
