Boring? I've got a surfeit.

Happily, this meme from Kristine features the unspectacular, so I am eminently qualified.

The game works like this:
1) Link to the person who tagged you
2) Mention the rules
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself
4) Tag six other bloggers by linking to them
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged.

The first thing: I don't wash my hair often. Once a week. My hair and I are both happy with this schedule but I don't tell other people about it. Until now.

The second thing: I like it when my dog licks my toes. Luckily he likes it too.

Third thing: I have been thinking about doing a little bit of tooth whitening for about five years now, but I don't know whether you can do it on porcelain crowns, and I haven't gotten around to asking my dentist.

Fourth thing: In order to get to sleep I have to be lying on my stomach with my feet hanging off the end of the bed.

Fifth thing: I have violent and upsetting dreams, all the time.

Sixth thing: I have kept, and I annually read, all the notes my best friend and I passed in high school. There are a lot, and most of them are killingly funny.

I have never tagged before, but now I'm tagging Gwen, Ames, and Stace.

Are we secretly related? Because other than #2 and, more recently, #6, you could have written that about me. Glad to know I'm not alone in the hair washing.

Ames said...

Well, I'll be darned. We ARE sisters. Ditto for the hair.

Notes from high school, you say? That sounds like a fun post. Just a (self-interested) thought.

Huh, I only wash my hair about twice a week. since I dye my hair its very dry and washing it anymore would turn it into straw. and we all know how attractive that is....

I like this meme. Somehow the "boring" details are often the most interesting tidbits. Perhaps because it's those weird little slices of life that make things seem real in novels.

See now, if I don't wash my hair every day it looks like one big grease ball. My kid, on the other hand, can go once a week easily (but I don't tell other parents that 'cause apparently it makes you a bad parent or something, judging by the looks I get).

I have all the notes Mr. Kate and I wrote in high school. Three years worth - two shoe boxes. It's a riot, although I don't read them as often as once a year.

Every day I learn something new about you ....

oh, I like this. People's "boring" habits and ways make up who they are.

It's good to know I'm not alone with the hair washing! I wash three times a week at most, but I always get odd looks if I mention that. I used to wash every day, and it did take a while for my hair to adjust to the new schedule.
