Meme for Liberality

As always, I am against the practice of tagging, so them that wants to do this is more than welcome to partake. In other words, I'll do rules 1-3 and respectfully decline to do 4-6.

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 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

______________

1. I ate raw seaweed once in fourth grade because the teacher brought some back from a recent trip to Japan and offered it to her students. Apparently it didn't sit well with my stomach, because I promptly vomited profusely all over my shoes.

2. I have an exceptionally low tolerance for stupid people talking loudly on public transportation. I also have a related low tolerance for stupid people who talk loudly on their cell phones in public places.

3. One of my biggest pet peeves is unreliable people and/or people who make lots of empty promises and then never bother following up with them. I think the Catholic Church needs to make a Patron Saint of Empty Promises. I'd buy that icon.

4. I have read the book The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath at least seventy-five times, if not more. I can almost quote an entire chapter by memory.

5. I absolutely hate getting places late, so as a result I arrive nearly thirty minutes early everywhere I have to be.

6. I got my first gray hair when I was twenty-five.

I was like that with the novel We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson. I liked The Bell Jar too though.

Thanks for playing along. I know some people don't like memes but it's a way to link to others I think.

Good work Kevin - I too am tagged so will go forth and post myself!

We are opposite - I don't like being early for things as then I always worry that I'm in the wrong place because nobody else is there or whatever. So I'm perpetually late to everything!
