7 Random Factoids

I thought I wasn't a liar. Turns out I lied. I said I wasn't going to do anymore tags, however, I was tagged by the lovely and charming Diva of The Sugar Bar - so how could I resist? Also? Fair warning: my dogs were also recently tagged - and please - as if I'd ever muzzle them. So, they shall be guest blogging in the not too distant future. When they heard about it, they were so excited they peed on the floor; of course, this act is no different than on any other day, I suppose.

But do not fear, dear food pornists! Last weekend I baked a naughty scrumptiousness from South America - and I will try to post about the deliciousness this weekend. It involves dulce de leche. Uh huh. Yeah. I KNOW. Like the centerfold of foods, that stuff.

Anyway, the tag merely requires that I share 7 random facts about myself, so here goes:

1} If I find a bug in my house, I make my husband set it free outside.
2} I have recurring nightmares of falling into water, car crashes, and hanging in high places by my hands.
3} I love the smell of my dogs' ears when they're just a little bit stinky.
4} I feel uncomfortable when people bow to me and say "namaste".
5} When I was little, I would sneak out of Sunday sermon to the church lobby so I could read the Readers Digest instead, which made more sense to me than the sermon.
6} I don't particularly like blue ink.
7} I think my left brain hates my right brain and vice versa. Which sucks for me; obviously, I'm in the middle - a veritable midbrain glob of goo.

So, there you have it; why on earth did I choose those 7 facts? What a pile of bleck. Whatever "bleck" is, that is. Per usual, I won't tag anyone outright - but if you like, consider your very bad self tagged and join the randomness.

And you? What is YOUR random factoid, DARE I ask?

Just found your blog and I just love it! I've spent the last 30 minutes going through and laughing until my sides hurt, so thank you.

Dulce de leche? My random fact: dulce de leche is in my top 5 favorites of sweet anythings. Bring on the recipe, Ann!

Is it Trés Leches? Is it Alfajores??? Can't wait for your dogs beeing guest bloggers!!! Randomness facts are allways fun! My random fact? I can turn my feet arround. What about that?!

I love the smell of pickles. Weird, right?

I love the smell of my dog's feet. Cannot wait for the dog blogging.

Wiley and Marcel BLOGGING?! I love it! Fun post.

Here's a random factoid: I love beans. I love burger. I love saucy foods.

I HATE chili. Go figure.

Ooh, looking forward to the onslaught of dulce de leche. I could drink the stuff. Random fact: I'm beyond petrified of praying mantises. Even typing the words makes me shivery.

Jennifer S said...

Random fact? I can tie a cherry stem in my mouth. But maybe everyone can do that?

nita said...

I hate blue ink. Love black ones. Love your raunchy writing too. Mine raunchy writing is not so subtle and tactful.

Maybe it's time to continue with my blog again.

Great blog, Ann. I feel like gaining weight just from reading - all those kilos I lost walking the girls are piling back on.

Adam said...

Haha love that centerfold of food comment. Dulce probably is a supermodel, because people either love/hate it. There is no in between.

Very interesting stuff... especially the dogs ears. I'll keep an eye out for 'dog stink' at yankee candle for ya :) said...

Oh, I did my random factoids tag/meme/thing. I checked that block. I ran circles around it and breathed fire upon it. Though, I think you did it better.


YD, sometimes with ♥June and ♥Angel Samantha said...

Did my girls make your dogs pee on the floor? If they did, will you still be my friend?

I like the smell that you get after you lit a match and I like to smell my dogs heads.

I love the feel of a wet (dog) kiss on my cheek. Probably because I *never* get any. Trace Jeanell only gives them out to strangers and people she likes.

Please don't tell Trace that dogs can blog! I'll never shut her up! She has always thought that I hold her back both artistically and financially. ;)

dulce de leche as the centerfold of foods = brilliant.
meanwhile, i used to spare the lives of bugs i found, but now i just take my aggression out on them. i won't lie--it gets ugly. and also, reader's digest rules (although i only ever read the jokes). :)

i dislike blue ink too! i don't think we go together. black ink is just way too much cooler for me. awww, you're just like my mum. gotta send the insects free outside. :) thanks for joining the tagging love..xx

Like most of your fans, I can't wait for the dog blogging either! What will they say, I wonder??!! I kill spiders and other insects in my house, because if I let them go outside, they might just come in again and they cannot live with me. Uh-uh. (I make it quick and painless, though, so they never know what hit them).

I actually yell at the bug before I kill it. Something along the lines of, "If you would just STAY OUT of my HOUSE, I wouldn't have to KILL you."

Yeah, I live alone. Does it show?

Katie said...

Yes, I'm 14 :) For my photos, I actually use a Kodak M753 point & shoot that I bought for about $90. I am really interested in getting a better camera. What do you work with?

When I first starting sitting zen, I had a compulsion to bow to nearly everyone.

I hate doing these things too, if only I had a penny for each time I said 'I'm not doing it....'
(But secretly, I enjoyed reading your 7 random facts!)

John D. said...

I'd love every factoid you could ever come up with about yourself Ann. : ) And your # 1? I put them out too. Compassion for the smallest of creatures can only help my karmic debt. : )

Yes indeed, in some moments I can say that I approve of with you, but you may be considering other options.
