Eight Random Things

There seems to be something going around these days. I've been tagged by two people, Patricia Sargeant and LaShaunda Carruth Hoffaman, to talk about eight random things. Boy, are they asking for it. :)

Here are the rules for the Eight Random Things post:
1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about herself.
2. People who are tagged write a post about their own eight random things and post the rules.
3. At the end of the blog, the person has to tag eight people and post their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

So, without further ado, here are my Eight Random Things:

1. I have to physically stop myself from raiding the clearance racks at Macy's. There should be a support group for those of us who can't help but zero in on those red clearance signs.

2. In my Social Psychology class in college, I was deathly afraid my classmates were going to find out that I was the person who continually messed up the grading curve. It's not my fault I'm a nerd!

3. I sometimes answer to the name Wicked Whore. It's because I've been known to do just about anything to see the Broadway musical, Wicked, which I just saw for the eighth time a couple of weekends ago.

4. If gas prices go up another five cents a gallon, I will no longer be able to afford to drive my car. This is fact, people.

5. When I was about six-years-old, I stole a Hershey Bar from K-Mart. I remember looking my dad in the eyes when I did it, so I'm sure he paid for it. I still thought I was getting away with doing something bad. I should have known a chocolate addiction was in my future.

6. When I wrote "The End" on my first book, I got down on my knees, and with tears in my eyes, thanked God. It was 2:28 a.m., July 31, 2001.

7. I nearly gave up my undergrad scholarship over my fear of public speaking. I refused to take a required speech course. I eventually got through the class after months of therapy to combat my Social Phobia. It worked a little, but the fear is still there.

8. I have never sucked the head of a crawfish. That's something just the Louisiana people can probably relate to.

Let's see who I'm going to tag...

  • Tara-The Amazing PR Goddess

  • Naomi

  • Cynthia Justlin

  • Shauna Roberts

  • Yeah, I know, I should have picked eight people, but it's hard finding people who have not already been tagged.
