in sport

My beloved lizabean tagged me, which means that I should write seven random facts about myself in this post and then pass it along.

1. I don't like to drink out of anything yellow.
2. I took a test at work which analyzed my personality. In the results I was compared to Hitler and Castro.
3. My top 5 list of places I want to see (random order): Brazil, Canada, Austria, Morocco, Turkey
4. I don't find Angelina Jolie attractive. Weird, right?
5. I had a terrible go at trying to learn time as a child. I still struggle at reading my watch!
6. I love fireflies. They remind me of my birthday, eternal summertime, the fleeting nature of life and also childhood.
7. Male characters that I have obsessed over: a drug-dealing self-mutilator, a bumbling-stoic, a womanizing homosexual, an anthropological egomaniac, a yogic chemist, an insomniac poet (with no words), a hero-not-to-be-relied-upon...what a cru!

Unfortunately, the buck stops here, because I don't think that there are 7 bloggers that read this (especially if we subtract the ones tagged by lbeth and Hthr). I do want to be a good sport though, so if you read this, please continue on your blog or your myspace or in a comment below :

Out of anything yellow!? You're awesome, Martha! Loved the list, love you :)

Wow! An obsessive scheduler who can't tell time!

OK, Martha tagged me but since I don't blog for now here's my 7:

1) A favorite quote of mine is

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm both a Baha'i and a nihilist, two seemingly diametrically opposed positions where I cannot deny the validity of either.

2) Lysistrata is a female character who can make my jeans feel too tight.

3) Sarah and I are going on Baha'i pilgrimage to Haifa, Israel in October. This will break her pilgrimage virginity (I lost mine in 92) so I hope she really enjoys it. Here's to hoping she has a spiritual orgasm during the visit!

4) It's hilarious to watch the reversal in sexual marketability between the genders as I near 40, although I've already claimed my steak.

5) I would be an atheist had the Baha'i Faith not entered my life.

6) I'm an
personality type. When I read that article it felt like a Man In Black had been tracking me to write my biography.

7) I learn through studying other's failures rather than successes. That's yet another reason I hated school so much. I didn't understand chemistry between actors until watching the Hayden Christensen-Natalie Portman Star Wars wedding fiasco.
