The Random Meme, or Manna From Heaven

A couple of days, I joined a NaBloPoMo group for people who were running out of blogging topics. I asked the group for help, thinking that people would mostly commiserate. Everyone had really, really good suggestions instead! I went back tonight, to re-read all the really, really good suggestions. And they sparked nothing in my brain for some reason. It wasn't them, it was me. I could tell they were good ideas but didn't know where to go from them.

So getting tagged for this random meme by was manna from heaven today. This is what you've gotta do, if you're tagged:

Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself.
Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

OK, so seven random things:

1. I can both roll and fold my tongue. Tongue-folding (the long way) is relatively common. Tongue-rolling (rolling back towards the throat from the tip) is rare.

2. My favorite cocoa is Ghirardelli Chocolate Mocha.

3. I hate onions, except in the context of French Onion Soup.

4. Within the past year and a half, I conquered my fear of dogs. I used to be terrified of them, although I always liked them in theory. Now, I pet them all the time. I didn't freak out when I met a Lab puppy who wanted to chew on my coat sleeve, and I've even driven some white German Shepherds on transport.

5. One summer, I read the last few chapters of Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth in the cafe at her home, The Mount, for my birthday.

6. I make my own gretting cards out of those puffy scrapbooking stickers for my friends and family on their birthdays.

7. I was at the WTO protests in Seattle in 1999. to tag??? I know, I know, I know!

Thanks for tagging me! I did this one a couple of days ago.

But please keep me in mind for future memes, because I will no doubt run out of blogging steam before the end of November.
