A Game Of Tag

I have been tagged by my friend OC over at BearsMountain. This one took me a while, even though I have lots of quirks from which to pick. I'm not tagging anyone this time but if anyone else does this, I would be interested in seeing your lists.


The Rules:Once you’ve been tagged, you have to write a blog with 10 weird, random, facts, habits or goals about yourself. At the end, choose 6 people to be tagged, list their names & why you tagged them. Don’t forget to leave them a comment saying “You’re it!” & to go read your blog. You cannot tag the person that tagged you, so since you’re not allowed to tag me back; let me know when you are done so I can go read YOUR weird/random/odd facts, habits and goals.


  1. I don't eat when I am traveling by plane. Two things I don't like - flying and throwing up. I figure if I don't eat, I will decrease the odds of getting motion sickness



  2. I used to work in a microbiology laboratory for several years before changing careers. I've seen enough out-patient specimens in Boston Market containers to never want to eat there again. And yes, the folks in the lab do comment to each other on what you drop off.



  3. I do believe in spooks. I do! I do! I do! I do believe in spooks.



  4. I won't walk barefoot in a hotel room, not even in the bathroom. The shower does a number on my shoes however.




  5. I know how to ride a unicycle. Such a marketable skill I know. Is there a circus looking for a middle aged lesbian who knows how to ride a unicycle but can't juggle?



  6. Being the klutz that I am, I have torn the ACLs in both knees. One blew in self defense class, the other when I fell off a motorcycle (which I was driving).



  7. I was voted female class comedian in my high school class.



  8. I'm really good with my toes. I can pick things up with them, spread them out like fingers, scare people with them. It's fun. I'd be good at yoga if I didn't think yoga was so freaking boring.



  9. I don't think Obama can beat McCain in a general election. I would bet my unicycle on it.



  10. I drew a famous artist's blood when I worked in the laboratory - and I missed. Good move CJ. Hopefully he can still paint.

Cool...I love it!! Especially the toes!

I sure hope you aren't right about Obama/Mccain.

Thanks for playing!

Oh...and do people really drop off lab specs in Boston Market Containers??? eeewwwww

Class comedian? Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! You make me laugh! A-hum... Do you drink on a plane?

Robert said...

a fellow memeber of the klutz club...:))) I would list my injuries but it would take a 1000 word essay..:)))

CJ said...

Oh yes OC. It is true. And we would culture just about anything. And I mean anything. So glad I am out of the lab.

CJ said...

I don't think I was very funny in high school Chewy, but I did wear a good Halloween custom my senior year. I think that sealed the deal.

No eating, no drinking when flying. Maybe a couple of sips of water. I flew to Hawaii a few years back. I think the trip took something like 17 hours from door to door. Needless to say, I was a little woozy by the time we landed.

CJ said...

Hey Robert! I'm glad to see I am in good company at least.

Cristina said...

Hey CJ there's this stuff called xanax - it works wonders (especially when flying). You the class clown - I would have never guessed. SO...I am trying to come up with a condensed list for you but well as you may or may not know I cannot be condensed I am just there - teehee.

karen said...

Fascinating list. I was surprised with #9. I wish I could disagree with. I want to, but deep down I'm afraid you're probably right. Damn it.

CJ said...

Hey Cristina - Looking forward to seeing your list lady. Will it be posted on your blog or on your myspace page?

Xanax huh?

CJ said...

Hi Karen - I think Hillary can beat McCain in the general election but not Obama. I don't think he can win the swing states. At least that is what I have been reading lately.

Cristina said...

I promise I will start blogging again - check it by the weekend

Very cool things about you!!!
I do the same thing on a plane, I have filled amny a barf bag.
Do you know that I hear
"The Wizard of Oz" quoted 2 or 3 times a week...every darn week.
I also believe in spooks "i do i do i do".

CJ said...

Hey Ruybe Jean - I know you are a big fan of the Wizard of Oz, as am I. One of my favorite movies actually. I was wondering who would catch that reference (I had a feeling it would be you).

Velvet Ginger (Rubye Jean) said...

I wondered when you would bring Oz up cuz I saw it was listed on your fav. movies on your profile!
