8 Random Things

I've fallen victim to Sara and April's 8 Random Things list. They are interesting and entertaining (at least to me) to see how well I know my friends. Now they can see how well they know me. Here goes:

1. I don't like eating the skin of a bake potato. I believe because it's brown you can't tell if it's really clean or not.

2. I have slight O.C.D. tendencies when it comes to hand washing and Purell. (Are you really surprised after the first random thing?)

3. I love the t.v. show Friends! I've seen pretty much every episode more than once and still love to catch it when it's on t.v. in reruns.

4. I own all of Jane Austen's novels - all of were purchased at the Jane Austen Museum in Bath and I lugged them home in my bag. Very heavy.

5. When I eat chocolate cake, I put it in a bowl and pour milk on it. That's how my grandma ate it.

6. My sister and I owned the Barbie Ice Cream Parlor that made the real ice cream.

7. I used to want to be a foreign correspondent for CNN and be stationed in the Middle East.

8. I have a vast knowledge of useless 80's t.v. trivia. You'll want me on your trivia team. Trust me on this.

Another Janeite!!!! I adore Jane Austen and have all her books too though sadly not purchased when I visited England. I have all the movie adaptations and love to watch them while knitting.

My dad does the same thing when he eats cake.

Thanks for sharing.

You know I always knew we were alike - we have many common "randomalities" - I think I made up that word. Although, girl we part ways on the chocolate cake in a bowl bit - um yeah totally violates all rules of texture eating. Love, A

Yay! I am glad that I know mots of those - I have even wrinkled my nose up at you in the U if I cafeteria over that milk thing (yuck!). No potato skins? Do you ever have them friend (as if friend makes everything better...but, well...). And the Barbie ice cream parlor? SO cool! :) -S
