Six Unimportant Things

In the interest of saving brain function for manuscript writing instead of blog writing, I'm following Diana Peterfreund's example and doing an un-meme listing six unimportant things about me.

Here are the un-meme un-Rules:
1. Link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.
4. Tag six and/or zero random people at the end of your blog entry.
5. Let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Six Unimportant Things

1) I have 2 computers side-by-side and keep one open for research and/or emails while I type my manuscripts on the other.

2) My first job (besides babysitting)was as a newspaper telemarketer when I was 14 years old.

3) My favourite color is yellow.

4) I used to be able to painlessly dislocate my right shoulder at will.

5) I take approximately one-third of a teaspoon of sugar in a cup of coffee. Unless it's Starbucks, then I take zero.

6) I have a distant cousin (Dustin Penner) who plays in the NHL

Okay, so I'm not going to officially tag anyone but if you feel like sharing 6 unimportant things about you, go ahead and list them in the comments or post them on your own blog.

You'd think it would be easy to think of six unimportant things! Let's see what I can come up with.

1. I'm a state employee LOL!
2. I had a sweet roll this morning.
3. I watched some recorded shows from back in November yesterday.
4. I have a big fat cat named Zippy.
Don't you think #1 should count for more than one?
5. I'm fairly new to the blogosphere.
6. I was upset when I found out Wendy's quit carrying yogurt for kids meals.

Yes, I think # 1 should count for more than just 1 LOL. I LOVE the name Zippy for a cat! Did your kids come up with the name?

He actually came pre-named, but at 2 years old they could say it, so it stuck.

I got tagged for this one twice in the past month or so. I don't think I have any other unimportant things, but I'll take a swing.

1) My cat's name is Kira.
2) As of the last vet appt, she weighed 14.5 pounds, but I still maintain she's not fat. She's just solid.
3) I'm 5'7 3/4" tall, but only if I stand on my right leg. I'm a little bit shorter on the left.
4) I watched the Westminster dog show yesterday for fun.
5) My favorite dog is the Basenji, which they never show. :pout:
6) I know how to ride horseback, but prefer English to Western.

How's that? =oD

I'm gonna have to try out that height thing, B.E. Your cat definitely isn't fat. I think Zippy is closer to 20 lbs.! She's almost as heavy as my kids and they're 30+ pounds.

Wendy Roberts said...

LOL at the not-fat cats! Personally, I think my weight is fine I'm just four inches too short :)

b.e., sorry you got tagged by the same meme twice in a month. I must be slow...

Wendy, I have always said I'm not overweight, I'm just under-height LOL!

I have to ask, Wendy, why no sugar in your espresso? :)

Wendy Roberts said...

Chandra, I'm not sure why. Maybe because it seems a shame to taint good espresso!
