Seven Random Facts

I've been tagged, and although it's normally TitB policy to ignore these things, I'll make an exception because it's Nic.

Here are seven random facts about myself:

1. I was vegetarian for a year. Ethics, health, economics ...all great reasons. I did it entirely out of spite.

2. I would rather sleep in jeans than pyjamas.

3. My brothers can make me laugh at the drop of a hat, without fail. They wait until I'm eating borscht or drinking hot coffee, then say something funny and watch me laugh it all over myself. I'd like to say that we outgrew this, but we were still doing it last summer.

4. As a kid, I once climbed out of a second-floor window to avoid practicing the piano.

5. For the past few years, it has been my dream to sit in the back of a 4th year university math class and yell, "BOR-RING!"

6. I am currently unemployed. A recent conversation with my mother on this topic went like this:

mom: so where are you working now?

me: I'm not working.

mom: oh, did you quit your job at the candy store?

please note that I have never in my life worked in a candy store, or in any store that could be confused as such.

7. Before I was introduced to my boyfriend's family, he told them that I dress "like a hobo".

time to buy new clothes

I have never put a lot of effort into my wardrobe. I don't even have a dresser because all my clothes fit into my nightstand, and almost everything I own came from a thrift store.

It may be time to buy new clothes though. Today I left a sock on the floor and my roommate put it in the garbage can, not recognizing it as an article of clothing.
