I've been tagged.

So, Jess tagged me (first time for everything).
Being a newbie, I ran across some rules to follow when playing tag. So, here goes:

  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog post, you should choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here are Eight Wondrous (and Lesser Known) Things about the Lo:

  1. When I was in high school, I had an alter ego named Larry who lived in our basement. We fed him through a hole in the dining room floor.
  2. I once snuck out of my dorm with a few of my friends and stole hoards of red tulips from the football field a few blocks from my college dorm. We brought them back in our garbage cans and decorated our rooms with them.
  3. Having been labeled a "foodie" by many, I find it difficult to admit that I have a real THING for Doritos... but I do. Even though they make my breath smell.
  4. I have ALWAYS wanted a nose ring. And lately, I've been tempted to act upon my impulse to get one.
  5. I've developed a pseudo obsession with the show "So You Think You Can Dance." I've always dreamt of being a dancer (despite the very obvious roadblocks); so I think this vicariously fills some deep, dark desire.
  6. I would love to write a novel, but I don't seem to have the patience for such a long work (poetry and essays are more my speed).
  7. I dream about owning my own restaurant (BURP!)... but I'm not sure I could actually follow through. I think I enjoy the dreaming more than the reality.
  8. Sometimes I don't recognize the girl I was in high school. What happened to her??

Tag: Officially Peef ; the rest of you are optionally tagged.
(Sorry! Rule #3 violated. Apparently I need a larger blogging community!)

I SO understand number 8. I'm not sure that I necessarily want to be that girl again, but it's certain she's long gone (for better or worse).
Your tulip escapade sounds fantastic!

Not sure I want to be that girl either... although her lack of care for the wiles of the world would be refreshing!

So, since it seems a bit lame to post my reveals on the actual blog, I will hide them here. Plus, I don't really have anyone to tag, so that too is a bit lame. Here they are:
1.) I was born in Planiville, Ks. I've often thought that would make a good name for my first album.
2.) I sucked my thumb for a very long time. Possibly until 3rd or 4th grade.
3.) I started to make my own breakfast when I was 4 because my mom was tired of having to get up at the crack of dawn. What can I say, I have farmer blood.
4.) I find it easy to be a friend but difficult to being friendly.
5.) When I was younger, I tried to remember what I was feeling each day, so when they made a movie about my life, I would have good input.
6.) I don't remember those feelings. But I might still have some good input.
7.) Favorite condiment is pickle relish. I can put it on anything.
8.) I don't know the lyrics.
