7 Random things about me (Meme)

The Urban Pedestrian tagged me and so, being the good blogger that I am, I will continue the MEME and will also tag others...

1) I collect Teddy Bears. I have about 25 'regular' teddies and about 50 beanies, and many others for Christmas decorating (40+)

2) I quit smoking on Aug 16 2005 and am so terribly grateful that I did with the support of Didier, however, I still crave them often, almost daily, and if it were proven that smoking were not hazardous I would start back in an instant.

3) I used to have a part time job with the Anatomy Dept. of Dalhousie University, a task of which was delivering cadavers to the Anatomy Classes.

4) I believe in ghost and most things paranormal and supernatural. I'm also incredibly superstitious. I also believe in UFOs and the existence of extraterrestrial life.

5) I've watched National Lampoons Christmas Vacation over 500 times.

6) I hate mushrooms. I will however eat them in 3 specific exceptions:
-on a Pizza
- in Spaghetti Sauce
-in Hot and Sour Soup
Otherwise I will pick around them and leave them on my plate.

7) If I could be anything in the world, I'd be a vampire.

And now I tag:
Ma Horton
Everything but Poopie John





You're a character and a half, MK. I'm sooo glad I tagged you. My daughter has exactly the same mushroom thing as you --she'll eat them on pizza, spaghetti and soup, but picks them out of everything else. The National Lampoon thing is just freaky, although I've watched The Graduate pretty damn often myself. And a big congratulations on the not smoking. At some point in the not too distant future the smell of cigarette smoke will begin to make you ill and that's when you know you have the addiction licked for life. Been there, done that -- it's been almost 20 years. I can detect smoking from a mile away now and it makes me really sick and yet, I still have dreams where I'm smoking. Hang in there.

Oh the smell if smokers made me ill after about 2 weeks, and that more than my health is what keeps me from smoking.

Like Fernando says, "It's better to look good (ergo smell good), than to feel good"

As for mushrooms; I had an old roommate that used to have Portobello Sandwiches... He's just fry up a Porto on the stove then put it between two slices of bread. I would have to leave the apt, talk about smells making you ill!!!

You must have that wonderful Chevy Chase rant (after he receives the jelly-of-the-month club 'bonus') well-memorized by now. One of my favourite dialogue moments from ANY movie EVER.

You mean... "Hey. If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is. Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?"

Yea, but I also REALLY like...

"Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, 4-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap-hap-happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse."

Mushroom thing -- me too, though if they're really thickly sliced on the pizza, I'm likely to remove them. The soup that gets me to eat mushrooms is hot and sour soup, too ... specifically the Tome Kha Gai soup at the Sahla Thai restaurant in St. Catharines. I've convinced a few mushroom haters to eat that soup with success.
