Tagged (Seven Things About Me)

Fellow Pisces Anne has tagged me. You would think with all the miles I spend running trails on my own, I'd easily be able to come up with seven things about me to share. Not so easy. Oh well, I'll give it a go...

1. I have a huge sweet tooth. I am thoroughly addicted to Airheads, Chewy Spree, Mike & Ike, and so on and so forth.

2. My best running friend is Ira.

3. Bob Gentile's blog drives me bonkers. When I'm done reading it, feel as if I've been sitting for hours watching Pink Floyd The Wall, or, as Anne so excellently stated as if I'm "arriving at a carnival and not quite knowing where to turn first".

4. I watch way too much TV. Lost, Prison Break, 24, American Idol and The Office are among my favorites. I also admit that I was one of the few that like HBO's John from Cincinatti (which lasted all of one season).

5. This should really go with #4 above, but, since it is also worthy of standing along....I was a fan of both 90210 and Melrose Place - yikes !!

6. I am not a people person. I can't stand people who talk on the phone loudly in public (on trains, subways, in restaurants, etc...), people who are walking on the street in front of me and suddenly stop, people who drive like idiots, people who talk during a movie, people who smell badly, people who cut in line, people who don't play by the rules, and, again, people who smell badly.

7. I love my family above all else.

Ok, so, now that I got to seven, I think I have about 100 more things that I could share. I will save that for the next time I get tagged.

Do I have to tag 7 other people ? I'm new at this tagging stuff. Alright then, I'll go ahead and tag a few folks (sorry guys, I don't want to not tag anyone and find out this is one of those things that if you don't tag a certain number of people within a certain time something weird or bad will happen) :


  1. I like Lost and The Office as well, but I am continually frustrated with Lost. I'm about ready to give up on it -- we never get any answers!

  2. ROFLMAO these cracked me up! I think mostly because I NEVER would have guessed some of them. I *heart* Airheads and Sprees myself.

    Are you an astrological peep? I only ask because of this "Fellow Pisces Anne" Dude, I don't think Pisces and Gemini roll to well in friendships. I think I have to stop reading your blog :P LOL JK!

  3. for me it's still seinfeld and a bowl full of jellie bellies!

  4. 3. Bob Gentile's blog drives me bonkers.
    glad I don't take this personally... AND I agree MY BLOG drives me Bonkers as well.

    ummm tagg huh... well I already did the 6 weird things about me...maybe I can cut and paste that one and ADD one more.

    How's ur Governor doing? Yikes on that huh... ahhhh validating my reason to move to an ISLAND in 10 years, whole world is friggin whacked --LOL

  5. anthony, took care of part one of the tag! what's the deal w/part two? do we need 7 "tagees" (or can we play w/fewer)?

    more importantly - see you in wurtsboro this weekend!

  6. Anthony --I asked a question to meri on her blog, about her last hard week of training for Umstead, and she replied. So now that hers, yours and Frank's blogs are linked have no excuse not to read them. I am addicted to candy myself, and even though my dentist said to stop, I like cremesavers chocolate/carmel when reading at night. I also like Dove dark chocolate squares (I buy them as the kids don't like dark chocolate) and starlight butterscotch candies. Interestingly, Pam Reed, in her autobiography on ultramarathoning, said that she rarely eats lunch -she just sucks on lemon drops. Sounds like my kind of diet.
    see you sat!

  7. In #6 you forgot to add guys with bad urinal etiquette.
