I've never been tagged before. I feel so special! Tales From the Beehive (awesome blog, check it out if you've never been there) tagged me today.

So, here are 7 completely obscure things about me that you probably never wanted to know and will probably make you stop reading my blog.

1. I hate drinking out of plastic (except water bottles). It just weirds me out. Just thinking about it makes my teeth hurt.

2. I don't eat beef or pork because the thought of chewing it makes me gag. (I have serious food issues).

3. I once had a boyfriend who left me for a man. Talk about a blow to the ego. Also, I recently discovered that another former bf of mine is gay. Coincidence?

4. I believe in past lives. I think we get more than one chance to get it right before going to the great beyond.

5. One of my hobbies is egging. Don't know what that is? You take real eggs (goose, emu, ostrich, duck, quail) and cut, carve, paint, etc to turn them into works of art. I'm thinking of starting an etsy shop. Here are a few examples:

6. When I was a junior in High school (I went to a chi-chi all girls school) the powers that be took away the cushions to the furniture in the student lounge for some unremembered infraction. All that was left were the wood frames. It was uncomfortable! One of my BFF's (the one who got married recently) and I made a big sign that read "Welcome to Stalag 17" and hung it over the door to the lounge. The administrators went crazy. They asked the perpetrators to come forward, but we never did. I was nervous for the next 3 months that we would get busted and suspended.

7. I hate coffee. And I mean hate it. With a passion. I don't even like the smell of it, I hate it so much. Also, coffee breath is heinous.

That was hard! And now I have to tag 7 other people. Hmmmm......let me think.

Randomly chosen from my comments:

Thanks for tagging me, my new 4th reader! I will be posting this later on today but I wanted to tell you that I also hate coffee and drinking out of plastic cups. If I am at a restaurant and they bring a plastic cup, I have to have a straw. You are on your own with the meat aversion but I did once go on a date in college with a guy that now lives with a guy named Chad. Funny!

You guys are cracking me up! Kristi, if we go to a restaurant that has plastic glasses (WHY????) I always tell them to get me a GLASS from the bar.
Don't get me started on straws! I hate them! I use them only under duress. Issues! I have serious issues!

I grew up in a very tightly knit Italian family. My grandmother is Catholic and she doesn't eat meat on Fridays or on Christmas Eve. That's the way it has always been. So every Christmas Eve, everybody (like 40-60 people) gets together and we have a HUGE fish meal. I am not talking about fish like people here in NC think of when I say fish. There is the antipasto course with all your olives and baked stuffed clams and salads (but not green salad). My favorite dish is fish salad and there is octopus in it. I LOVE it! Then comes the pasta course with either a white clam sauce or a red sauce made with crab legs. Then there is the green salad (to cleanse your palette and aid in digestion or so I've been told). Then there is lobster stuffed with a shrimp stuffing. Then there is dessert which contains NO fish. Delicious Italian pastries!!! I wish it were Christmas!
