There aint nothin’ random about me!

Nandango tagged me and insisted that I do this.  She said that these are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
6. Let your tagger know when your blog entry is up.

Six random things about me.  I think that it would be more fun to see if I could come up with six things about me that are NOT random, but, whatever, here goes!

1.  The tops of your sock make great napkins in a pinch…  I discovered this while living in Korea.  As is the custom shoes are removed when entering a home and people sit cross-legged on the floor–despite having a sofa.  Anway, it is also traditional to be served some type of food, but napkins (or the more commonly-used toilet paper roll) are not always readily available.  The top of your socks haven’t been in your shoes, are readily accessible when sitting cross-legged and work quite well as a napkin.

2.  I like to eat syrup on scrambled eggs.  None of that ketchup crap!  I think may be a genetic defect as it seems to come from my Dad’s side of the family.  My mother hates, but tolerates it.

3.  The only fist fight I have ever been in in my life went down something like this:  I was walking across the playground to the football field to meet my Mom as she was watching my oldest brother’s JV football game against the Browning Indians.  As I crossed the playground this Browning kid came up to me and asked me if I wanted to fight.  I said something like “No, I don’t even know you!”  To which he replied with a fist to my gut.  At this point in my life (1st or 2nd grade), I didn’t know people actually hit each other and so didn’t prepare for the blow.  He pretty much knocked the wind right out of me to which any normal boy would have responded with a fist, but I just walked past him and continued on with my day.  I’m special…

4.  I hate it when people pop their knuckles!  It almost makes me nauseous!  In fact, once I even had to ask a friend of my to please refrain from doing so when seated right next to me.  I know everyone does it and mine even pop occasionally, but the incessant contorsion of ones finger joints is completely stomach-turning to me.

5.  As un-American as I have been told it is, I have NEVER seen the Star Wars Trilogy all of the way through.  I’ve seen bits and peices of them, of course, but have never actually seen any of them from beginning to end.  My roomates freshman year of college were going to force me to, but they didn’t follow through, so I’ve still never seen them.

6.  I have mild scoliosis.  My back curves 14 degrees one way at one spot and then 14 the other way at a spot further up.  The major problem with this is that it makes it difficult to sit perfectly vertical on top of a horse.  I generally slide to the one side.

I’m definitely not going to tag 6 people because I think all of the people I know in the blogging world have already done this, but, ya know, if anyone reads this and feels a burning desire to respond, they are free to do so!

    Finally! Well, I’ve never seen the Star Wars trilogy all the way through either. I tried once and got bored. And I’m a knuckle cracker (and back, toes, hips, neck…). But not constantly, all day long. Usually in the morning or when I’m stretching. Well done!

    Yeah, for some reason it does not gross me out when people do it stretching or by accident, but when they sit there and bend every one of their knuckles from side to side until they have popped them all, it grosses me out. Also when my brother does it with his ankle… EWww!
