Random things

Nobody tagged me that I know about, but here are some random things about me. I'll let you decide if they qualify as "weird":

1) I routinely fall asleep in action movies, particularly during the "exciting" sequences.

2) As a teenager, my dream car was a station wagon. I always thought that sports cars and sedans were impractical. This has not changed, although now I'd like a fuel-efficient minivan.

3) I have giant feet and hands. I wear men's sized gloves, socks, and shoes.

4) I "watch" (actually "craft-to") Oprah and The View every morning. The View is goofy and Oprah has a lot of "Well, Duh" moments, but I watch anyway.

5) I didn't realize how much I enjoy quiet solitude until my children entered grade school and I had long hours alone in my house.

6) I have terrible listening skills. I can't remember names until I see them written down and I must doodle to pay attention in classes. Conversations are different. I remember those, but there are more visual and social cues in a conversation.

7) I blog actively and embrace the internet, but I am a lone holdout against cell phone ownership.

8) I have always hated writing. Can you tell? I do, however, like chatty correspondence and explaining things, so blogging is fun.

If you read this, have a blog and haven't done the list of weird or random things, consider yourself tagged!

As a long, LONG time lurker of your blog, I felt inspired to comment.
I adore reading people's "goofy" facts and yours were no exception! But I want to say that I too have no cell phone, so you aren't alone.
We also haven't had tv reception or cable in many, many years so I like to tune in through the web and newspapers/magazines.
And I'm a station wagon lover myself! We have one and it gets 36 MPG, but I do miss my 1961 bug that got a WHOLE lot more!

Hi, another lurker here. :) The random facts are always fun.
I lived in Chicago for 6 years, so I enjoy seeing your pics of the city!

Hi Susie! I found your blog from your flickr account. I always like to read random bits about people. Glad to know more about you!

Oh, and your new hair clips are SO cute!

Yes! Yes! I'm the only person I know without a cell phone. Years back, it was just my family and friends who used to shake their heads in exasperation at me - now doctors' receptionists, dog groomers, school secretaries, librarians - etc. etc. etc.! feel the need and the moral right to look at me as if I've just said, no I don't believe in feeding my children when I confess to not having a cell phone number. But I do looooove my laptop!

OK, you've got me. I left some facts about me on my site. BTW, my first car that I drove in HS was my sister's station wagon complete with baby seat in the back but it sure did move fast!
