8 Random Facts About the 'Cup

Terra tagged me for this meme, the object of which is to blog “8 Random Facts About Myself.”

Here are the rules:

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
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.

Here are 8 random facts about me:

1) My favorite pose in yoga is the one where you lean forward, grab your elbows with your opposite hands, and let your head, neck, and arms hang down towards the floor. It makes me wistful each time to leave it, especially for downward dog.

2) I have to eat breakfast food for the first meal of the day, whether that meal happens at 8:30 am or 4 in the afternoon, and it must include coffee.

3) The smell of hot dogs cooking in the microwave when I was younger used to give me a headache and make me feel nauseous.

4) I think that sometimes I have spontaneous orgasms. It happens unexpectedly and feels different than other orgasms, like a deep shiver that runs up and out of the core of my body. Every time it happens, I wonder if it is or if it isn't, and if it isn't if it's somehow connected.

5) I just came home and found Sven, my male roommate of two weeks, cuddled up on the couch with a girl in our extremely small living room area. (Gregory, I told you!). I'm hiding out in my bedroom watching hockey to give them a misguided sense of privacy. I miss Rumi.

6) I'm a pack rat who strives for minimalism and usually fails miserably. I'm constantly saving things that I think might be useful at some point in the future. It's very difficult for me to get rid of things that have sentimental value.

7) I used to have dreams, when I was younger, where the sound was so loud that I would wake up and feel as if my ears were hurting. It used to confuse and fascinate me that my brain was capable of faking itself out like that.

8) I was once on TV.

"I think that sometimes I have spontaneous orgasms."

This would be a great first line for a story. This would be great to put on your dating resume. It shows that you are low maintenance. Has this always happened, or is this something recent? Maybe someone hypnotized you once and some word is triggering it?

Which leads me to #5: I told you!

Patience. I have to remind you the month isn't up yet. We are still in that part of the story where the reader must think there is no hope. We have to ride the elevating tension out until it reaches its climax, no pun intended. Maybe there'll be a fight and then the inevitable make-up.

Oh, yeah, thanks for the tag. I'll be working on this tomorrow. Pressure. Stress.

Thanks for the tag, Cup (tee-hee, so cute). Spontaneous orgasms eh? wow, that's pretty impressive....

BTW, loved reading about the trip....I didn't comment (or email) nearly enough, but I enjoyed every post, every detail and you (temporarily) scratched that small travel least for the month you were away. Now it's back!

It's going to be a long 3 weeks before my next vacation....*le sigh*

Lancelot gets number 7 from time to time. Weird. :)

Sparky Duck said...

The orgasm one should be something you should be sharing with every suitor!

Another tag, another meme, Im so popular ;)

C'est fini, Mlle Buttercup.

Willow said...

Thanks for the Tag:) Does it matter if I don't have 8 people to tag after myself? I still know so few people, and some of those have already been tagged.

Spontaneous Orgasms--I wish! What a lucky girl you are!

Starshine said...

What were you on TV for?

Karianne said...

I'm tagged! I'll get to work w/in a couple of days.

Buttercup said...

Gregory - Give up on Sven!

Wordnerd - They're unpredictable and little. They don't come close to rocking my socks off, but they are kind of fun. :) Thanks for reading and following along on the trip. I'll do the same when you're on vaca!

Gypsy - I've never heard of anyone else that has those "loud" dreams. Weird.

Sparky - The suitors usually have to work for it.

Willow - Doesn't matter. Tag people you haven't read that look interesting if you want, or only tag a few. Your call. :)

Starshine - It's a secret.

Karianne - Looking forward to it!

Hot dogs cooking in the microwave is kind of a gross smell. Ugh. Now I'm not hungry for breakfast. But I will have coffee. Always coffee.

I think I know what you mean about number 4.

Sven needs etiquette lessons. Ew.

Thanks for the tag. I'll have to think of a whole 8 things about me!
