Like some animal in a wildlife preserve, I have been tagged by Janie. Unlike those animals, I have to now reveal 7 weird or random things about myself.

1. I wear my clothes in the order of appearance in the closet. My clothes are separated: shirts on one side, pants & skirts on the other (I don’t own any dresses). I choose the first shirt and then then choose bottoms to go with it. If the shirt isn’t suitable for the day or I just don’t feel like wearing it then it goes to the back of the line….and so on, and so on. If something keeps coming up in rotation and I never wear it, then I get rid of it. Also, it makes my clothes feel loved because everything gets touched.

2. I always meet my celebrity crushes. Sometimes it takes years, but our paths somehow cross. After I meet them I don’t care about them anymore. And they usually turn out to not be nearly as attractive as they photograph. Except for Shemar Moore. I couldn’t look him in the face cuz the fineness was blinding.

3. I am a good cook. But I only cook for myself so nobody believes me.

4. I have Van Halen & Fleetwood Mac on my ipod.

5. I have never had a manicure, pedicure, had my eyebrows plucked, or shaved my legs. I’d rather read a book than spend all that time on maintenance. Just don’t have the money for that stuff (that’s why I wear dreadlocks). Plus, the hair on my legs is very thin and my eyebrows have a perfect natural arch (if I say so myself).

6. I am addicted to calendars and planners. I buy one, sometimes two every year….but I don’t have nothing to plan!!! At the end of the year they are empty!

7. I am afraid of statues. Sometimes I think they are moving when I look at them. I grew up in Washington, DC with statues on every corner and the Smithsonian Museum’s exhibits. I think that this is the one that ruined it for me.

Unfortunately, most of my friends don’t have blogs so I don’t know who to tag. I have to wait until I get some more bloggin‘ under my belt.

  1. You do have good eyebrows! If you haven’t heard it on the street, I’m in Portland for the time being and working part time for a store you’re quite familiar with–see, I never abandoned you! Hopefully, I’ll get some freelance writing going soon, too.Hope all is well!-Theresa

  2. Toni,You are cracking me up! “the fineness was blinding” I love that line. Did you never cook for Joy when you two were roommates? If you make an appointment for a manicure or pedicure you will have something to put in the planners.

  3. I shall third your eyebrows’ excellence!I like your slightly OCD clothing reassurances. Made me laugh.Ick, The Awakening bothers me, too, but in a bad-art sense.
