I'm it!

I was tagged recently by Jenny.Lee to share some random facts about myself.... so here goes!

First of all, here are the deets:
1. Link to the person that tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

So here are 6 random facts about me:

1. I LOVE the new coffee table we just got (with help of gift cards from our wedding). I often just sit and stare at it.... and yes, I realize I'm a dork.
2. The old "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer" special - you know the one with Herbie the dentist, Yukon Cornelius, Clarice the doe - is my absolute favorite. I watched it every year when I was little, and now it brings a tear to my eyes when I watch it. It's so sweet - that Island of Misfit toys gets me every time!
3. I am the world's slowest reader. Luckily in college I'd only have to read something once, because I retain and remember almost all of it. But it takes me forever to get through just a "fun" read like a suspense/murder mystery (which is my favorite type of book).
4. I hate horror movies. I love mystery and suspense (and even some sci-fi and supernatural), and it's not the blood so much that bothers me, but I don't like movies in the true "horror" genre like "TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE" or "SAW".
5. I think I'm addicted to Diet Coke.
6. I'm allergic to beer. Well, actually the hopps in beer. Not so allergic that I break out in hives and can't breathe, but enough that even 1 to 2 beers would make me sick and give me a massive headache! I haven't had a full beer (I've had a very few sips here and there - very few) for over 10 years now. I do like wine, mixed drinks, and the malt beverages like Smirnoff Ice though!

I love that Rudolf show too. It's my favorite. I try to watch it every year. Plus I hate scary movies!

Lindsey said...

I'm addicted to diet coke too! AND I hate horror movies also. Gosh we would be such great face-to-face friends!

Most horror movies don't phase me but I can't stand watching torture scenes. I don't know what it is but they just get to me.

Krista said...

I met HERBIE the dentist! Well, not really, but I now work with a guy who looks JUST like him. Hair flip and all. Seriously. Talks a bit like him, too.

I am so with you on the horror movies. I just can't handle them!

I posted! You rock! :-)
We're totally looking for a coffee table, please post a pic of yours!

Sometimes I sit and stare at my coffee table. It's usually out of disgust because I bought it at IKEA for 15 bucks and there are purple circles all over the top from dripping wine glasses.

Oh, I can't wait for post-wedding gift cards!
