Randomly Weird

I've been tagged by one of my readers, Geggie, to participate in this meme. I love doing these things, but this one has rules; I have to tag seven other people. ACK!

Here are the rules for the meme:

1. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you.
2. Post these rules on your blog.
3. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.
4. Tag seven random [?] people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

Here are my seven randomly weird facts:

1. When eating pizza, on my first slice (regardless of how many follow) I use a fork to eat all the cheese and toppings, leaving just the crust. Then I eat the crust. I always do it this way. I never deviate. First slice only, eat cheese and toppings, then eat crust.

2. I never go to bed without taking off my makeup. Ever. I don't care how late it is or where I am, I will never sleep a full night with makeup on.

3. I've always wanted to be a make-up artist. It's my dream job. I have been playing with make-up and doing makeovers for as long as I can remember. My first memory of sitting at a vanity table was when I was four years old, in my Aunt Joya's dressing area. She had a stool with a pink vinyl cushion and curly Q legs on it.

4. I hate a tucked in bed. No matter where I am, home or hotel, I absolutely MUST untuck the sheets all the way around so the top bedding is loose. Of course, if Ed is with me, I will just untuck my side, but I cannot stand to slide into a tight bed where I can't move my legs or feet. Even if the rest of me is covered, I have to have my feet out. Otherwise, I can't sleep.

5. I typically don't stress about anything. I'm never "in bed" for days, I never lose sleep, I don't worry about paying bills, I don't care about losing my job, I never worry about not having friends, I don't fret over what will happen when I get old.... I think you get the point. Everything always seems to work out.

6. I LOVE movie previews. I would even consider paying the full movie price to sit through 90 minutes of previews instead of a movie. I never arrive late to the move theatre for fear of missing the previews. I make sure I'm there in plenty of time to get my Diet Coke, Twizzlers and seat in the middle of the back row to settle in well before the previews start. Yay!

7. I like my food HOT. Soup has to burn the roof of my mouth; if I'm in a restaurant and it's not hot enough, I'll send it back. Water for tea or things like hot cocoa or cappuccino mixes, must be BOILING. My friend Vicki has one of those hot water spigots on her sink that dispense super-hot water, but it's still not hot enough for me; I put it in a pot and boil it till I see bubbles! Food has to be hot also. If it's not steaming, I don't enjoy it. Fresh out of the pan, oven, pot....HOT food.

So there are my seven random facts. I don't really do the tagging thing, but if any of you would like to play along, you can post your seven facts in comments or just do it on your own blog. I would love to read them!

Intriguing list! I'm with you on the movie trailers. I love 'em. (You made me crave Twizzlers, too, but I don't think they have 'em over here in Naples.)

As for that '7 things' meme, I posted 7 things over on my blog (it's towards the bottom of the page) if you wanna check my list out.

Thanks for playing. You're list was great and just weird enough.

I'm the total opposite of you with the removing makeup thing. I always sleep with mine on. Yes, I know it's horrible for your skin, but oddly enough, my face breaks out like a 12 year old if I wash my face at night.
