8 things meme

I guess since I've been tagged twice for this I should probably do it eh? Denise tagged me on the Fast Times blog and LJ tagged me at The Four Square.

The Rules: Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.1.

  1.  I don't have a party trick.  You know how it is...you're at a party or a dinner or something and people show off the quirky things they can do? Yeah well, I don't do anything.  I have no quirky talents.  Go figure.

  2. My brain does not compute music.  Seriously.  I think got the short end of the stick on that one.  I can't remember who sings songs or the names of songs in general (there are rare exceptions).  I can like an artist but not be able to name a single one of their songs.

  3. Oddly connected to the item above - a song can come on the radio and I can sing along with it.  Turn it off and I cannot repeat what I just sang or what comes next.

  4. I used to hate doing dishes and now I kinda almost like it.  I still let them sit for longer than they should before doing them but shhh don't tell my mother that it doesn't bother me. (Although I do have to use rubber gloves when washing, otherwise my hands break out in a rash - soon not to be a problem as my new apartment has a dishwasher).

  5. I love swings.  Swings are my favourite playground item.  It feels like flying.

  6. I very rarely listen to music when I'm working because the words distract me.  I can handle instrumental music but after awhile music just plain gets on my nerves when I'm trying to write.  BUT when I'm in the zone and feeling really productive I turn on loud heavy rock music.

  7. I prefer fruit to chocolate.  (I know, a lot of you know this already but there are some people who have missed out on that.)

  8. I'm a perfectionist who doesn't believe in perfection.

I'm tagging Deby because I don't think she's blogged in months.  Ditto the Young One.  And because I don't think she's yet been officially introduced to the wonders that are memes.
