Oh no, I'm "IT"

Aloha friends! No, I'm not returning from Hawaii, but an episode of the Brady family vacation to the Big Island. Thank goodness for DVR -- I'm never more than 2 clicks away from an old fave.

So I got tagged with the very same meme by a blogger (Baroness) and not-a-blogger (Well Read Hostess), which is the first time I've been tagged with anything since I got tackled by a cab driver in my Easter egg suit at 15th & Pine years ago. (I'll save that story for another time.) In fact, I'm not really sure how to say "meme." Is it meem? Or mem? Or may-may? hmmm. And what does it mean? And stand for? Is this in Webster's ... or is that obsolete now that Wikipedia is on the scene? I don't know, but will have to find out.

Anyway, I decided to accept the challenge and will now attempt to lull you into a trance with "6 Unimportant Things About Me." The only problem will be narrowing it down to six. Here goes:

1. Favorite foods: Cheese and unagi. Not together though. Ever. Ew.

2. Favorite color and other words that are fun to say: chartreuse, souffle, chandel-earrings

3. An embarrassing moment: Explaining to my mom at age 5 why I tied myself to a chair in the basement. (My kindergarten class had taken a field trip to the county jail earlier that week, and well ... I guess curiousity got the best of me. I wanted to know what it was like to be in jail. Um, did she drop me on my head at a young age???)

4. Movie I recently saw: Juno ... 2 thumbs up.

5. Guilty TV pleasure: Flavor of Love 3 -- hands down! This season I'm torn between the "Hip Hopera" and "Wedding/Funeral" episodes. Both drove me to the brink of depends.

6. 15 minutes of fame?: Yes, a cameo appearance on Fox News "What's Buggin' You?" I appeared as "Concerned Driver" explaining the perilous consquences of having 10 sets of lines to guide 3 lanes of traffic over the Girard Poit Bridge on I-95South. The bad news -- The camera didn't add 10 pounds, it added 20. So, I looked fat in my chartreuse sweater, and my hair was blowing all over the place in the 40 mile/hour winds. The good news: it got fixed.

So there you have it -- a look into the mundane side of yours truly!

I think I'm supposed to pass the baton to 6 more people when I'm done, which is nearly impossible since I only have a small handful of folks who read this fledgling blog who haven't tagged me or been tagged already. Anyway, if you made it this far, do me a favor and spend 2 minutes posting a handful of unimportant facts about yourself. Consider yourself IT!

4. Recent movie - Grandma's Boy ... surprisingly funny.

5. Guilty TV pleasure - I've been watching Top Chef a lot.
