The Eight Questions of Blazing Death Courtesy of Vaklam!!

My lovely friend Vaklam from Noetic Concordance has tagged me on this interesting meme. Here is a repeat of his rules:

"Here are the rules:
- Each player starts with eight random facts about themselves.
- Those who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight facts and post these rules.
- At the end of the post, choose some people to get tagged and list their names."

Nicely done, Vaklam! Here is my list!

1. I am left handed, and the way I write always freaks people out. A lady at my office handed me some checks to sign and I turned them almost upside down to sign them. She looked at me oddly for a moment and said “Wow,that was different.”

2. I can name 90% of the videos on Metal Mania by the first five notes. I was single during most of my formative head banging years, so I watched Head Banger’s Ball on many a Saturday night. Now I can name most any song or video before the singer starts singing.

3. I met my husband in an AOL DC Comic book Wonder Woman chat room hosted by John Byrne. True story.

4. I can’t go to bed if there are dirty dishes in the sink. I have to wash them or I just can’t relax. Weird.

5. I can leg press 500 pounds and squat 270 pounds. I have freakishly strong legs, and I wish my upper body would catch up so I didn’t feel so disproportionate.

6. My favorite food is pizza. I can eat it any time. I especially love it with either shrimp or Canadian bacon and pineapple. A close second is steak. I am a definite carnivore.

7. I am not a morning person but have forced myself to become adjusted to it. If I don’t have to get up, I can sleep until noon.

8. Beer is my absolute favorite alcoholic beverage. It has a lot of calories so I don’t drink it very often, but there is nothing better then an ice cold beer on a hot day to make things festive!

So there ya go! Some strange but true random facts!

Redhead Fangirl, Lisa, Swinebread, Nick, Mark, and Eaglewing: If you get the chance, and you don't feel bombarded or haven't already been asked, I would love to see your responses! John, you are already very busy, so don't feel compelled, but I would like to see yours as well!


Lisa said...

HA! I'm left handed too, and I met Craig on-line. We must be like 5th cousins or something.

I'll take on the tag! Now I've just got to think of 8 things...

Nick said...

Morning people scare me...that much cheeriness, that's just not natural!!

Vaklam said...

#2 and #3 are officially awesome. I was very metal back then, too. I used to have great headbanging hair.

I'm right handed but I hold my pencil like I'm left handed. Not sure why but I've heard it has to do with brain hemisphere dominance.

Eaglewing said...

Cool list, and Mmmm - Canadian Bacon. I like a good Hawaiian pizza with hot peppers too...

Thanks for tag. I accept and threw up a quick list over at the Roost.

RedheadFangirl said...

Thanks for tagging me. For some reason I'm never memed, so I will take it on. Bang your head!

Heidi Meeley said...

Lisa, I saw your post- you rule! I think we are definitely cousins- we just gotta figure out how!

Take care!

Heidi Meeley said...

Nick, morning people scare me too! I am not cheery at all, but I wake up anyway. Not good, but pertinent to keeping the job action going! Heh.

Heidi Meeley said...

Vaklam, yay for head banging! It makes the world go round, you know? Hee hee! I still listen to metal while exercising and doing my blog so I guess I will never fully grow up!

As for the way you write, it must mean you are in your RIGHT mind!

Heidi Meeley said...

Eaglewing- saw your list, and it really touched me! I need to go over there and post, as I was really moved.

Thank you!

Heidi Meeley said...

Redlib, I was dying to tag you, but I don't usually get meme'd either! Yay! I look forward to your list!

Bang your head, indeed.

Swinebread said...


and nick, morning people rock!

Heidi Meeley said...

Swinebread, nice list! It almost tops the whole Ramblin' Rod thing!!
