being it

bambi tagged me, so i will do the right thing rather than write about last night's minnow happenings (later?).

The rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

ok. here's 6 random things about my life

  1. i hate hair. i like it on heads, but nowhere else. i spend a great deal of time each day removing it from where it has fallen and curse its resolve to remain in place.
  2. i've always wanted to be a barber. despite my hair hatred and my inability to cut anything straight, i would enjoy standing and chatting with surprise guests all day. if only i could get paid for barbering without the cutting part--head touching? i'm not sure what the pole would look like.
  3. i am best at being alone when someone else is around.
  4. public pizza eating makes me a greedy pig. i avoid almost all public eating experiences because i like to eat with friends only, and because i worry about getting my fair share. i blame a no-food childhood for this. "mom, can gary stay for supper?" "no. we only have one can of ravioli."
  5. some afternoons i find songs on youtube that make me cry. i sit, i cry, i go back to vacuuming. maybe this has something to do with #3.
  6. when i talk to people, i wonder about what they're not saying, and sometimes i can figure it out. i wonder if they sense that regardless of what i'm doing or saying, i am haunted by loss.
and those i tag because they seem cool and i would like to learn more about them:

Now the hell was I supposed to find you? I guess I'd have to be paying attention or something. Like, really close attention. I didn't think that was a part of blogging, did you?

But here I am intrigued. By you, uglycousin and the hair in the corner over there. Ya, I know. ugh. I'll play along in a different way, K?

thanks for this
much fun!

I like your 6 things...your way of being brutually honest and humorous at the same time has always fascinated me.

Ok, so Angie has be wondering if you are indeed being brutally honest in your humor and if so I'm ....drifting, haunted in ...back and noticing a hair, it's black and I'm blonde, and it's embedded in my sweater, but I can't remove it because at the tender age of 45 I've lost my near vision...

Ok, so any attempt at lableing me as cool illicits the come hither, tail wagging spaniel approach, I fetched your slippers--Tag team Postage has been posted.

Ugly Cousin--funny stuff man.

I loved your 3rd one Scott... I smiled at your hair phobia, I hadnt heard that before but would definitely be a hassle for a barber

glad you didn't take the tag as a burden. great responses all. lu, the hair embedded in a sweater is a story in itself. when i hear it, though, i think dog hair. then i think of my grandma who crocheted hair into everything she made.
