I've been tagged with a meme!

The fabulous Dr. Monkey has tagged me on the 8 Things meme that's been going round. Here are the rules of this meme:

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. (You’re not the boss of me!)
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Now on to my 8 things!

1. I have a very wrong crush on Daniel Radcliffe, you know the kid that plays Harry Potter. He's so adorable in inerviews not to mention he has great taste in music.

2. My first crush as a kid was on David Bowie and my second, Jonathan Frakes, Next Generation's Will Riker. I still swoon a little bit when I see him.

3. I can roll my tongue.

4. When I was a kid I used to have this recurring nightmare where I was being chased by Freddie Krueger through a mall. I had the dream every night for something like a month til I finally got tired of it, snapped and let him catch me. He kissed me on the cheek and I never had the dream again. Strange.

5. I think Coke tastes better in glass bottles. It's the only way to drink it.

6. I was once a certified cosomotologist, I let my license lapse though. Oh man I have horror stories about working in a salon, it was awful.

7. I met Bruce Campbell at a screening of Army of Darkness, there were hundreds of people there so it wasn't all that intimate but I still met the guy. I even got a chance to ask a question during a Q&A session. He was very cool in person.

8. I love to watch matlock with Andy Griffith, in all seriousness it's one of my favorite shows. I've seen each episode so many times I can usually call the plot/ guest star within the first 5 minutes of the show. The one with Roddy McDowell is my favorite though I am partial to the weirdness of the episode that takes place in the old west. It was all a dream don't you know.

Since filing this out I see that I have also been tagged to complete this meme by Cap'n Dyke so look forward to another 8 random things to follow soon but rather than tag 16 people I will tag 4 now and 4 later to reach the 8 that the meme asks. I choose Lee, Ben, MC and PJ

INtersting list. Funny thing... Jonathan Frakes lives in my wifes hometown which is about an hour and a half from me (or 30 miles as the crow flies). I have seen him around a bunch. He and his wife Genie (Laura from General Hospital) run a little home decor type store.

PJ said...

Thanks for tagging me, I don't know what to write about so I'll just blag it as usual.

I felt like such a perve when Radcliffe was performing naked in that play and there were nude pics of him in all the papers. There was some illicit about all that young male meat on display...

I used to like Mr Frakes during my Next Gen phase. Number One was a meaty manly man...

I can roll my tongue too.

I think everything tastes better out of a glass bottle, not just Coke.

I'd love to hear some of your beauty salon horror stories, email me sometime.

I have done my part. I am jealous of the Bruce Campbell story. Oh yes jealous indeed.

I like how Riker can't sit down in a seat like a normal person he has to swing his leg over it.
Check out season one to confirm it.

Becca said...

I'm so jealous! I've always wondered how I would react if I ever met someone whose career I admired in the real world. I think I'd be able to keep my head...I think.

We have so much in common! Sigh...meaty manly men are the best...sigh...

Yeah! and it was terriffic full of breakfast ceral goodness!

I've just dug out some very poor pictures from when I met Mr Campbell, I'll have to scan them and post them!

And no Riker couldn't sit like a normal person, he always had to pull his shirt down then plopped back into the seat and finally crossed his leg. It was the standard. He also had a great stance broad with one shoulder leaning fowrard and his other arm hanging limp. "Belay that order Mister" the power Riker stance.

I can roll my tongue, but most orangutans can.

Coke does taste better in a glass bottle!

Cosmetologist? Maybe you can recommend a good conditioner. I have difficult hair. And I mean that I have a lot of difficult hair.

Matlock? I think we will have to agree to disagree on that one. He does good Ritz cracker commercials, though.

Becca said...

I know I am completely alone when it comes to watching Matlock, well me and millions of grey haired retirement home residents. I don't remember the Ritz commercial though...

Dr. Zaius said...

I couldn't find a video, but there are references to the series of commercials that Andy Griffith did for Ritz Crackers.

"Retromercial fans will also remember Andy's classic line, "Everything tastes better when it sits on a Ritz. Mmm...good cracker!"

We all have our eccentricities. I like old Hayley Mills movies, like "The Parent Trap", and I am definitely in the minority on that one.
