My pal Dylan over at Sourdough Monkey Wrangler tagged me a for meme that requires five sordid facts about myself. He also said he didn’t know if I would have time to complete it. Sounds like fighting words to me, folks. Sure, I’ve been hella busy with my dissertation, so busy in fact, that I have barely had time to catch up on the twelve posts(or doce, for mis amigos mexicana)I really want to write about. However, he failed to understand that procrastination on my dissertation is my kryptonite. Here are the rules: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules. 2. Share 5 facts about yourself. 3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names, linking to them. 4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs. Oh, and these kangaroo pictures were inspired by Dylan’s homage to sweet camel loving in his own post. #1 I have had unique consumption practices since age 3. I went through phases of eating rocks, the salt rock you put on your driveway to melt the ice in the winter, and was known to drink pickle juice and take random swigs from the soy sauce bottle. And this was all before I turned 10. I guess I just like salt. #2 In kindergarten, I proudly told the teacher that I enjoyed the smell of gasoline when my parents took me to the gas station. I spent a lot of hours in time out that year?and would occasionally run into walls. #3 I was in competitive forensics (aka the speech team) for eight years and in band for 11 eleven years (I played percussion). It is pretty safe to say I was one hip kid. #4 My husband and I constantly fight over the fact that I want to name our first born ?Bacon?. #5 I have a soft spot in my heart for obese cats. And now for the tagging! If anyone is actually left reading this old blog after my long period of silence, I would like to tap Anna at Sunday Night Dinner, Amanda at What We’re Eating, Vanessa at What Geeks Eat, Jamie at I Love My Life (gasp, a non food blogger!), and what the heck, George over at The Foodologist, just to flaunt my international connections. Thanks for the distraction, Dylan!
