Tuesday Meme

Sassy tagged me with this meme. She got it in turn from Tiffany at Trivial Affairs.

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.

B. Each player list 6 facts/habits/secrets about themselves.

C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 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.

My 6 facts/habits/secrets:

1. I grew up in a very remote area of New York state where the deer and bear vastly outnumbered the people. You could go to the town dump at night and shine spotlights on the black bears rooting amongst the garbage piles. You didn't want to get too close tho.

2. While I've had a number of jobs over the years I always seem to return to research biology. I've been working at UNC on breast cancer for the past 6+ years. Right now the research focus is angiogenesis but you never know where the next set of experiments will take us.

3. My worst habit is wanting to hide away from people. I can usually socialize fairly well once I'm around others but my natural proclivity is to avoid social gatherings.

4. Another habit is an intense desire for sugar. Candy, of course, and soda, but even in less socially accepted forms such as directly eating cane sugar, corn syrup, or even confectioners sugar. They're all fair game to me.

***Secrets? Ha! No chance on that. I'll add one more each of the facts and habits***

5. I tend to be happiest when in motion. Whether it be rocking in a chair, swaying in a hammock, or slamming through curves while driving--I like motion. Unfortunately it's not easy to get me moving in the first place.

6. Here's one that's part fact, part habit, and until now was a secret: I like to bite nipples. This habit didn't serve me well as a baby and it's not great for relationships now but it's a habit that's hard to quit. Any volunteers?

Now this is the part where I give the nod to several lovely bloggers to carry on the flame of this meme. And --drum roll please-- the lucky buggers are:

Tiff of NAY fame

Rosemary and her attic

Carli out in the wilds of Jersey

and the lovely Karen of Condiment Kitchen

Welcome one and all and I hope you carry out this meme in grand fashion. Thanks!

Maybe I will add a pacifier to your x-mas gift to help you out with your secret obsession with biting nipples....sounds painful to me.

That last one has wiped out any memory I have of the first five.


OK - I'll do this one, since you tagged me so nicely.

The memes that want secrets can forget it. Sure if you don't reveal your identity but for those of us that don't hide behind the blog if we'd wanted the secret out we'd of already told it.

Good list except for the last one, I plan to try to forget that piece of information.
GA Girl said…
Interesting listing - the last item was rather strange. Have you inflicted damage? "Nip" might be a less cringe inducing term...

as for your sugar thing....while I don't eat confectioners sugar I do like chocolate syrup out of the bottle....
kenju said…
I'll send a pacifier, Dave, and EW!
Nina said…
Breast cancer research, and you like to bite nipples, and I saw the picture of your former girlfriend. Theme, perhaps? :)
utenzi said…
Nina, I never linked the three things together like that. I suspect you're right--there is a theme present here.

Judy and Chris, thanks for the pacifier offer. Maybe I could use one to satisfy that urge. :-)

Rosemary, chocolate syrup is quite good too.

Lee, there's been some temporary damage but nothing very serious yet. The secret is knowing who likes to be bit and who doesn't. I have no desire to get hit so I am careful!
