I've been tagged for this meme twice! Thanks Chana and Lvnsm27!
1) Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.
2) The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
3) At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
~1~ I used to be petrified of the dark. I still get nervous when it's pitch black and I literally can't see my hand an inch away from my face.
~2~ My mother tried to tell me I couldn't get my ears pierced because "Jews don't put holes in their bodies." Then, ever the sharp-eyed child, I pointed out that the rebbetzin of our shul, as well as the local Chabad rebbetzin, had their ears pierced, as did their daughters. My mother relented when I was nine. ;-)
~3~ I hate avocado.
~4~ I have begun writing, and never completed, at least five books (I might be forgetting one or two). I even tried signing up for NaNoWriMo last year as a motivator, but it didn't work, because I didn't have a computer to write on at home, so my writing hours were severely curtailed.
~5~ I love to read, but I have a very low tolerance for authors who go on and on without ever getting to the point. Hence why I have a dislike for 19th-century British authors (many of whom were paid by the word). My favorite genre is fantasy, particularly young-adult fantasy, especially if there is also an element of historical fiction.
~6~ A lot of people think that I'm an extrovert (at least people who know me in real life). This is because I have the ability to make conversation with a brick wall. However, being able to talk a lot does not equal being an extrovert.
~7~ I kill bugs and open jars. If I was just a foot taller, I'd make a great guy. :-P
~8~ My parents always said my younger sister was going to end up taller than me. We're the same height, which I consider a triumph.
Okay, now I'm supposed to tag 8 people, but everyone has already done it, or been tagged by others. So I'll tag okee, sabra, and bella, and hope that at least one of them still reads this blog...
