Six random things

24 Apr

Well shit. I’ve been tagged by NerdGirlBlogging and now I must reveal six random things about me. I think this is called a meme.

1. I had an imaginary friend named Lucky. She had short blond hair and she wasn’t very nice to me.

2. I don’t mind running five miles in the rain but when I’m in a car I hate reaching for stuff in the back seat from the front seat. It’s so hard. Also folding maps.

3. I think the greatest invention of the 20th century was probably the tampon, though I’ve never tried the moon cup.

4. I don’t jump very high.

5. Are you afraid of rabid dogs? Deep, dark water? I am terrified of being trapped upside-down because I have weak veins and low blood pressure and within a few seconds my brains start exploding into my sinuses.

6. I see no reason to wear pants in my apartment. Optional.

I am tagging:

1. Mad Nerdess
2. The Cheese Rind
3. A-Dog (Whose blog I am not permitted to read. You probably aren’t either.) El Scorcho
4. Fuzz
5. Lucia
6. Loud

I saw two horrific bugs in my kitchen sink this week. I thought maybe they were silverfish but after some research I identified them as house centipedes. Watch out. That’s their “carnage” page of poor bugs that were smooshed by ignorant humans. I didn’t feel sorrow or pity when I scrolled through the pictures, though, I felt bugs crawling all over me.

I am usually bug-neutral to bug-friendly but I cannot suffer a house centipede to live. The extra freaky long antennaes. The wormy body. I pour hot water on them and then spray them with bleach. On Earth Day. I don’t even like typing about it. The only reason I am is because I think they are close cousins to the freakish bug the Moderatilist trapped under a jar in college. And he left it there in the middle of the kitchen floor with a note on the jar that said “Look at this bug!” But I didn’t see the note and kicked the jar and severed some part of the bug. Maybe the thorax.

    My imaginary friend was called BoomBoom. He used to use all the soap. My how things have changed.

    I would rather run 5 miles in the rain than not.

    I have those bugs too, I go around vacuuming them, but they are fast! So I end up chasing them around the apartment. I think they come out of the drain. One was on my bed last night. I hate them.

    I can’t get the mooncup out of my head. I keep imagining women I see wearing(?) them. I may have to just stop leaving my apartment soon. I hate that you brought this device to my attention.
