A Meme

Yes, Linus fans, he will return soon!

In the meantime, here at last is my response to bookwormom's meme poke.

10 Weird Things About Me:
  1. I've had my tonsils out twice.
  2. I pour wine with my left hand and milk with my right hand.
  3. I once re-created a black and gold Elizabethan dress, complete with hooped farthingale, for $50 in materials. Spray paint and glitter glue may have been involved.
  4. When I was 20 I left college and moved to London with $1000, no job, and no place to live. I survived.
  5. I have read Aristotle, Plato and Sophocles in English and Greek. Aristotle makes more sense in Greek.
  6. I took a life-size cardboard cutout of Elvis with me to British Columbia to visit a friend, photographing him with innocent bystanders at every opportunity.
  7. My movie star crush of the moment is Eric Bana. You would be shocked--shocked!--at how many times I've watched "The Hulk."
  8. My ultimate post-breakup girl-power comfort book is Robin McKinley's The Blue Sword.
  9. I eat my dinners according to what gets cold first. [This had to be pointed out to me by a friend, as I do it unconsciously.]
  10. I LOATHE the Build-A-Bear Workshop with a passion that defies all reason.

#4- Wish I'd been brave enough to try that!

#8- That's in my TBR case- maybe I ought to read it next.

is it really possible to have your tonsils out twice? did they leave bits in the first time or something? or take the wrong things out?

these are rhetorical questions, I don't really want to know, but it's making me giggle.

my sister had chicken pox three times, which is supposed to be impossible, so I guess anything can happen.

#9 is really funny. reminds me for some reason of the way my mother and sister like to casually put a bunch of coins in front of me when we're sitting around talking. I will sort them by denomination and then stack them in order by date. They think this is hysterical, and I was never aware I did it until I once asked them what was so funny.
