Meme: Six Random Things

Eva from A Striped Armchair tagged me for this meme a while ago; sorry I'm so tardy! Well, here's some random tidbits about myself:

1. I can wiggle my ears. Separately.

2. I can't stand driving with the window down and having my hair blow all over (and no, it's not styled.) It just annoys me to have wind in my hair! I've never ridden in a convertible, but the idea of it makes me shudder.

3. I prefer to wash dishes by hand. The dishwasher is storage space.

4. I don't like avocados. I lived in San Francisco for several years and people were always astonished that I couldn't stand the slimy green mushy things. Avocados are apparently a favorite of native Californians.

5. I have a habit (annoying to others, soothing to me) of fanning or thumbing the pages of a book continually while I read. I'm sure it looks really weird, and it bugs some people. I don't know why I do it. Nervous habit, I suppose.

6. I know how to drive a forklift. Despite the fact that I keep getting urged to seek an office job (which pays better) my warehouse job (summers as a college student) remains my favorite- probably because it was active work that didn't involve pleasing customers!

I don't know who to tag; probably everyone who wanted to has already done this meme. But if you haven't, consider yourself included and play along!


  1. Do you wear your hair long, Jeane? Or at least long enough to get hair in your eyes and mouth when you are driving with the window down? That's why I prefer to keep the window up. I don't want to have to deal with that and then the tangles that might result from it.

    I enjoyed reading your answers!

  2. Not really long. Length of my chin, right now. I usually cut it shorter when it hits my shoulders.

  3. You can wiggle your ears separately? Now *that* is a talent! :-)

    I hope you're having a great weekend!

  4. These were fun! I hope you use your ear wiggling to impress your kids' friends, hehe. I'm glad I love avocados, since I'm moving to CA soon. In high school, my best friend drove convertible, and I didn't have a license, so he pretty much drove everywhere. I always wore my hair in either a pony tail or tight braids. :)

  5. Oh, I hate sitting in the car with the window down too!!! And I don't like avocados either... although I've heard great things about them.

  6. I only tried avocado once and I hated it, so I understand you!

  7. Now THIS is how you do a 6 random things meme. I hate it when book people say as one of their 6 random things, "I love books!" Um, yeah, got that.

    I can wiggle my ears...but not separately. :-)

    I'm totally with you on hating to have wind blowing in my hair. My dad says I hated it as a baby, too.

    I'm a native Californian and I LOVE avocados. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

    Good answers! :D

  8. Oh, I LOVE wind in my hair! And avocados too!

  9. so -so on avocados, so-so on wind blowing hair in my face (depends how hot it is), and I actually do dislike hearing pages being flipped and bent! lol this was fun meme to read, thanks for sharing and doing it!
    Oh, -and I LOVE our dishwasher, with five people in the house, anything that means more time to read is a good thing!!! you could always come do the dishes at my house....! ;-)

  10. Wiggle your ears separately! I can't even wiggle them together. :) I don't mind the window down if it is really warm outside, but in general unless I am wretchedly hot, I don't like fans or air blowing on me.
