Seven Facts

 The lovely Priscilla at An Inkling of Panache nominated me to tell you seven facts about myself.  And........here I go:

#1 - I'm not really a movie repeater.  There are very few movies that I've seen...let's say...over 10 times.  I definitely have some, but not a lot.  Which takes me to my first fact about me...I can re-watch Tombstone whenever I see that it is on (and I did this Friday night).  I think Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holliday is one of my favorite movie characters ever.

#2 - I wear a lot of leopard print. 

#3 - I was on an organized drill/dance team in junior high, high school, and college. 

#4 - Early 2009, I'd only lived in Sydney for a short time. I spent an entire day walking around the city, watching street performers, and listening to buskers. I saw a busker today in Hyde Park, and it reminded me of that day...which reminded me of this fact: I used to always give street performers and buskers tips.  Why did I stop?  Not sure, but I started that habit again today when I saw this guy.

#5 - The only poem that I can recite is by Robert Frost.  The only reason that I have this poem memorized is due to the fact that I've watched The Outsiders more times than I can count (another one of the few movies that I can watch repeatedly).

**Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold
Her early leaf's a flower
But only so an hour
Then leaf subsides to leaf
And Eden sank to grief
As dawn goes down today
Nothing gold can stay.
 **I did not use any aids to remember this...you're just going to have to trust me on that...but I have no idea what the correct punctuation should be, so I didn't even try.

#6 - I've never had a cavity.

#7 - Nikki Sixx (of Motley Crue) sucked my finger.  Have I told that fact here on my blog before?  Well, he did, and it's something I will cherish forever.  That blonde is me; the raven-haired guy is Nikki...this was taken before camera phones, so I consider this a real gem that my friend snapped this picture on his disposable camera.

I'd enjoy it if you rattled a quick seven facts about yourself in my comments.  Or take the idea and post your own.


  1. I'm the same way about movies! I love The Outsiders though, it's been a long time since I've seen it. The movies I've seen repeatedly are probably too embarrassing to mention here (the Olsen twins have starring roles in several).

  2. I have a friend that rarely watches movies more than once, while I watch movies multiple times before I tire of them, lol. I love leopard print!! To have a memory like that before camera phones is so amazing and definitely something to treasure!

  3. That last story is probably my favorite. And I LOVE the picture of you from your dance team.

  4. Holy crap. Nikki Sixx!

    I'm not a good memorizer of anything.

  5. I think Beetlejuice and The Breakfast Club are the movies I have seen repeatedly. Can't help it. I love them!

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I shared a cigarette with Charlie Scene from Hollywood Undead a few years back. Nothing like your finger being licked by Nikki (which is fuckin punk rock!!!!!!) but eh, it's close!!! LOL

  6. I would cherish a Nikki Sixx finger lick forever too!! Gah!

    I have zero poems memorized although I did recognize that one when I read it.

  7. Awesome! I love these & I'm surprised that you did not cover that finger & never wash it again after Nikki Sixx licked it! Tee hee!

  8. Haha, the only movies I'll watch repeatedly are usually rom coms (when they come on TV) or Christmas movies around the holidays, mainly because I can only stand a few and I'll watch them to attempt to get into the "holiday spirit"- I'm a bit of a Grinch. I've never had a cavity either, which is why I'm dreading going to the dentist lately- I don't want to break my streak!

  9. I can definitely watch movies multiple times. Michael doesn't like to as much, so if there's a movie we've both seen and I want to watch it again he's hard to convince! I did dance in junior high and high school too, but my school didn't have a dance team so I went to a studio. We just had recitals, no competitions or anything.

  10. I'm impressed you've never had a cavity! Good for you! I thought me making it to a teenager without any was rare. And oh um WOW about the Nikki Sixx story! I would never forget that either. You've got some good celebrity stories.

  11. hahahaha he sucked your finger! that is so gross and hilarious ;) leopard print looks fabulous on you. i am totally a movie repeater lol

  12. I can't believe you've never had a cavity. I'm so impressed and amazed! I have terrible teeth, so I had lots and lots of cavities growing up...

  13. Love your blog!! Here are 7 random facts since I am anonymous.

    1. I am a total voyeur. I love blogs, secrets, and eavesdropping.

    2. My only regret in life is that I never have lived alone. I have always lived with my parents, roommates, or my husband /family.

    3. I am obsessed with mineral water.

    4. I take my hot dogs very seriously. Dont you dare put relish anywhere near my dog.

    5. There is nothing I love more than a good soak. Hot tub, bath tub, hot springs, etc.

    6. I have hosted 7 foreign exchange students and have loved and learned so much from each one.

    7. I would love to start my own business but I am honestly terrified of failure.

  14. Hahaha! That last one is hilarious :)

    I haven't had a cavity either!

  15. Damn girl! You and Nikki Sixx! I thought I couldn't love you anymore than I already did, but I just keep learning knew things about you! :) Thanks for participating. I loved learning more about you!

  16. Hahaha #7!!! That's creepy and awesome! I don't care to watch most movies again, but then there are some that I could watch every day and never get tired of them. Most of the time it's because of a lifestyle or location that I just love to fantasize about...or maybe a particular character ;-)

  17. There are so many movies I've seen at least a dozen times. I'd usually rather watch a movie than TV.

  18. Haha, why did he suck your finger? :) What a great story. I love seeing street musicians and I usually give them money. And I always give money to homeless people with dogs. Thanks for sharing your facts!


I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
