Because You’ve Always Wanted to Know, 8 Random Things

Well, I was tagged by Sizemore to post eight random things about myself. And though I normally don’t follow through with these sorts of things, I was particularly bad at it when they were all the rage on email and then myspace, well, this is the first time anyone has actually tagged my silly little blog, so it only feels right to put together a little something. Maybe you’ll learn something new.

1. I went skydiving when I was 18. When I called my parents afterward to tell them, I said, “Guess what I did?” My mom guessed, “You ate meat?”

2. I’m a sorority drop-out.

3. I learned how to speak Hebrew and Yiddish in elementary school, but I’ve pretty much forgotten everything.

4. I have great-grandparents from Manchester (I only learned this a week ago).

5. For years, I was obsessed with Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Minister’s Black Veil.” I wrote many papers on it during high school and college.

6. I lived with a couple who, over the course of the two years I stayed with them, got engaged, got married and had their first child.

7. My boyfriend and I have the same birthday (July 8). He’s five hours older.

8. I was a vegan for 3 months. I gave it up when I went to Hawaii on vacation. I’m still a vegetarian, though.

And now to tag other people, which I’m not too keen to do. But here goes: Andrea (I love the new blog), Rey (how could I not include you?), Michelle (it’s high time you got back to writing, sister), Chris (of course I have to include a new London friend), Karla (even though I always feel like I learn new things about you when I read your blog), Allison (it’s been a long time since we’ve had an update from Oregon), Mike (I want to see more on your blog), and Hitched (even though it’s not a personal blog, I’d love to see 8 random things about hitched. Or its awesome founders).
