Random Friday

Geosomin over at The Supposed Golden Path has tagged the Bag Lady.

The rules state that one must post 6 random things about oneself, and tag six other people, and link to the blog of the person who tagged you. Here goes:

1. The Bag Lady only drinks coffee in the morning before she has breakfast. After she eats, she can't drink any more coffee. Don't know why, it just doesn't appeal.

2. When she was a teenager, her bedroom was purple, with one gold wall.

3. She tried playing the tuba when she was in high school, but it gave her a sore throat.

4. Her baby toenails are so tiny, she can't put nail polish on them. Most of it ends up on the skin around them.

5. She loves shoes. She has tons of shoes of all kinds, but almost always wears sneakers.

6. Not only is she left-handed, she is left-footed, too. And her left eye is dominant. And her left ear. Does this mean she is in her right mind all the time?

Whew, glad that's over. The rules say that the Bag Lady is supposed to tag 6 other people, but she won't. (Does that mean she won't come into any money, and that her hair will all fall out, or some other disaster will befall her?) Instead of tagging anyone, she invites you all to leave a random fact about yourselves in the comment section.

Have a great weekend!!

Hmm, I'm left-footed and left-eared,too. I guess I'm only partly in my right mind!.

Random fact? I can make dice twirl.

Hilary said...

I have a ridiculously acute sense of smell. Which reminds me, time to clean the litter box. ;)

the Bag Lady said...

dfLeah - being partly in your right mind is okay! But making dice twirl? Very cool.

the Bag Lady said...

Hilary - I have a fairly acute sense of smell, too, which is part of the reason I don't want to quit smoking! I know, it sounds ridiculous, but when I quit smoking the last time, my sense of smell increased dramatically.

The world stinks....

Crabby McSlacker said...

Love the interesting facts--Tuba? Really? For some reason that cracks me up.

This is kind of pathetic, but I can't think of any random interesting things about myself! Is that sad or what?

Sharon said...

hahah great facts! =) No more coffee after breakfast? lol

the Bag Lady said...

Crabby - full disclosure? I had a crush on a guy who played the tuba, so thought that would be a way to see more of him. Unfortunately, spitting into a brass thing that weighed more than I did took all the romance out of the relationship.....

Sharon - Maybe if I didn't drink 12 cups before breakfast, I could stomach it later in the day!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Sagan said...

I also have a freakishly tiny baby toenail!

Also I'm really lopsided. Not only is one leg shorter than the other, one of my eyes is also bigger than the other and slightly above the other one. My dad has the same thing.

the Bag Lady said...

Sagan - it's nice to know that I'm not alone with the freaky baby toe! And one of my hips is higher than the other....perhaps because one leg is longer.

biz319 said...

I have no sense of smell at all - that's probably why my husband married me!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

the Bag Lady said...

biz319 - that cracked me up! Sometimes not having a sense of smell would be a really good thing!!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Geosomin said...

You're doomed! Doooooomed!
Thanks for doing that...:) I'm always curious to learn random thigns about people.
I too have a tiny toenail...I try and paint it as I feel I should but it's mostly an exercise in futility.
The no coffee thing would make me sad...I'm sure my blood is 1/4 dark roast at any given point in the day :)

the Bag Lady said...

Geo - I wonder if there is some kind of false toenail thing we could get..... like gel fingernails? Or would that be just plain weird?

Reb said...

I don't remember the purple & gold walls, oh well. Now I know what I forgot to ask the Dr yesterday....can they take away part of my sense of smell?

I can't eat yogurt! I tried, because it is supposed to be good for you, but because it is fermented, it gave me a migraine. (DUH! Yes, I am a slow learner)

BTW, love the fabric & the pattern. Looked yesterday on my reader, then forgot to come online at home & comment.

the Bag Lady said...

You don't remember the purple and gold walls?! Sheesh. (I was trying desperately to remember what colour your bedroom walls were.....do you remember sharing the bedroom when we were little?
And that fabric is pretty, isn't it? I think it'll look good on L.

Tricia said...

I can put my leg behind my shoulder.

And I do it often if I'm tipsy and at home by myself (no idea why, but I enjoy doing yoga after I've had some wine).

solarity said...

Purple and gold? I knew I liked you for some reason! (I wouldn't want that in a bedroom, but somewhere else, yum!)
I too am left-handed, and left-footed, but I'm right eyed. I surmise that this is because I got nearsighted earlier, or worse, or something, in my left eye and the right one took over.
Random fact: I quit biting my nails when I was fifteen because my front teeth grew too far apart. Now that they meet again, in my fifties, I have not taken it up again.

the Bag Lady said...

Tricia - when I was younger, I too could put my leg behind my shoulder. Haven't tried for many years, though.

Mary Anne - that's too cool! There are a lot of us lefties in blogland. And I'm near-sighted, too, which is how I know which eye is dominant. I wear contact lenses and my optometrist recommended a monovision prescription - my left (dominant) eye is corrected for distance, but my right eye is corrected for reading. Sort of like bifocals, but different.....

kcinnova said...

I have the same problem with my baby toenails.
Purple & Gold were my college colors!

the Bag Lady said...

Kcinnova - hmmm, what does that say about us - all these funny baby toenails.....

darksnark said...

I can do the splits. And then put my head down on my knee. And still walk.

the Bag Lady said...

Marianne!! I am SO jealous! I've never been able to do the splits all the way!!

David Cranmer said...

I'm the same way about drinking coffee in the morning and stopping. Sometimes at night during the winter months but that's very rare.

the Bag Lady said...

David - I'm glad to know I'm not the only one! I will occasionally drink it later in the day, but hardly ever. Well....unless it has Bailey's in it.....:)
Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

tommeh said...

I have a rare personality which has lulled people to fallacious judgments.

MizFit said...

oooh all the left stuff is intriguing.
I need to gooooooogle if thats related to creativity? I think it is!

the Bag Lady said...

Tommeh - thanks for stopping by!

Miz - I think it must be.....isn't the right side of the brain the side that controls creativity?

Crazylady said...

I have teeny tiny baby toenails too!! They are practically invisible! Not even enough to attempt to paint them I'm afraid.

the Bag Lady said...

Crazylady - that's too funny - that so many of us have teensy toenails! Wonder if it has something to do with our all being so clever.....

tokaiangel said...

I agree with Miz - I think the left stuff IS something creative. And it would make you a great football player, everybody loves a left-footer!

Random fact? I have real difficulty remembering people's faces. Through the whole of LA Confidential I thought Russell Crowe and Kevin Spacey (the two main characters) were the same person! It can be really embarrassing and I'm certain it's why I'm so shy - I never know who anybody is!! I have learned to remember people by haircuts and shoes and things like that though :0)

TA x

the Bag Lady said...

TA - I have trouble remembering names. It's totally embarrassing at times, so I can relate!

Shivers said...

Those are some very interesting random facts! I'm not sure I could even come up with one that would be worth posting, let alone 6! :o)

I hear you on the teeny tiny baby toe nail - especially if I trim it at all, the polish just goes everywhere. If I get French Polish I'm sure she's just painting my toe!

Shivers said...

Check it out!!!

the Bag Lady said...

Oh.My.God!! I was totally kidding about false toenails! That's hilarious!
Thanks, Shivers, for stopping by to educate me! :)
