8 Things You Never Needed to Know

My friend R.U. (Experienced?) at RUminations tagged me with a meme. Here are the rules:
  • Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.
  • The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
  • At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
The penalty for not continuing the chain is instant bad luck, which means nothing to me. Considering my series of unfortunate events last year, to quote from "Born Under a Bad Sign," if I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have no luck at all.

But here goes anyway:
  1. I flew from New York to London by myself when I was 8.
  2. I put a tack on my 4th-grade teacher's chair. It stuck in her girdle so she didn't feel it, but the class nearly died of suppressed laughter.
  3. My feet are size 12-1/2, so I mostly wear men's shoes.
  4. I went to Maya Rudolph's 8th birthday party.
  5. I didn't meet my three older sisters till I was nearly 40.
  6. I wrote the first press release for "A Nightmare on Elm Street."
  7. I loathe licorice, anise and fennel.
  8. I never pass along chain letters or memes.

Number 7 must surely be extremely unusual.

With me, it's cilantro. Tastes like shampoo. That's a genetic thing that affects a small percentage of the population.

But licorice, anise, and fennel? Everyone loves those!

No they don't! Darling Husband doesn't either; more proof that great minds think alike.

Oh, I agree with #7! Fennel, especially, is one of the least tolerable smells to me.

David said...

Well, I'm boggled.

Okay, what gives with not meeting your three older sisters until you were nearly 40? This sounds like a book in the making...
