I'm feeling a bit like I'm 8 years old, playing a frenetic game of tag. The Aunt tagged me with this, (thanks Auntie! I've never been tagged before and I feel all popular! :-) and I'm wondering if I even KNOW 8 bloggers to tag back with it. Anyway.

1. Each player must post these rules first.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

eight random facts/habits about me:

1. I gave up caffeine a few months ago but have developed an addiction to iced coffee since the weather has warmed up. Decaf, of course, but I really don't need another addiction to add to my list of SN, various fangirl boards, chocolate and MySpace.
2. My movie collection and my music collection are both alphabetized. Why, yes, I *do* have obsessive-compulsive disorder, why do you ask?
3. I have a big girl-crush on Claire Forlani. She is so graceful and beautiful. Don't believe me? Watch "Meet Joe Black."
4. I am not a fan of most beer. Especially the mass-produced swill that passes for beer in most American bars. Yuck.
5. I speak 3 languages fluently. Swedish, German, and English. Bits and pieces of a few others, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian, and ASL. I can understand Norwegian and Danish pretty well because they're so similar to Swedish. I love linguistics.
6. Most reality television disgusts me. Just when I think the lowest common denominator has been reached, something new comes along that is even worse than what I thought was the most awful program. Witness: Survivor, Fear Factor, The Amazing Race. Ugh.
7. I can't watch horror movies because they scare me too much. And yet I will read Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and other stuff that scares the bejesus out of me.
8. I like the cold and snow. I miss it when the weather is 90+ degrees and 100% humidity lingers for weeks.

Wow, that was far more difficult than I thought it would be. Now to find 8 bloggers to tag back.

Erincee, MotherMe, Nikitaku, Amanda Marlena on We Shall Not Be Moved, Teri on WindLost, Mischa on Church Made Me Stupid, Milady de Winter on Chez Milady, and very unfairly because he's out of the country, John on The Shepard's Staff. Friends all, although they might think otherwise after having been tagged.

I just saw this and immediately thought of you:

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

Or not.... ;)

months...years....until someone tags them with a meme and then they'll track you down like no one's business!!

Great! Absolutely agree with you about reality TV!
