Me in 8 Random Facts

Fiona tagged me on that “Random Facts” meme that’s been going around – and I was mildly gleeful, I admit, because I don’t think I’ve ever been tagged on a meme before. Lucky me! And lucky you, now you get to read some random trivia about me, me me!

1. I’m a very fannish person – as in, TV fan. While I don’t watch an incredible # of television shows, I love talking about the ones I do watch. Same with movies. I don’t understand when people watch a show or a film and come out saying simply, “I liked it.” or “I didn’t like it,” and that’s it. I could go for ages about characters and stories and blocking and lighting and musical score.

2. I run for exercise and usually listen to a knitting podcast while I do.

3. I currently share an apartment with my twin sister, and this has worked out pretty well for nearly 4 years now. However, we’ll both be moving in the fall and it’s sort of like the end of an era.

(M and me atop Signal Hill in Newfoundland a couple of summers ago – check that wind, baby!)


4. I’ve never seen a full episode of the show “Smallville”, but I think the theme song/credits are awesome.

5. I hate the fact that the movie box office is biased against female actors. A crappily written movie wtih a lot of pretty boys in it and a lot of action will always make more money than a crappily written movie with pretty girls in it. And chances are, the movies with leading actresses headlining the film that do make money are the typical “girl finds self/life dream and gets guy at end.” Why can’t a woman ever save the world in a movie and have it be a normal thing like when a guy saves the world in a movie?

6. I’ve travelled in 3 continents and Chicago O’Hare airport is the only one that’s ever made me cry.

7. I drink tea, and if someone serves me tea in a restaurant composed of a single (unused) teabag and a cup of hot water, I will ask them to go back and put the teabag in the pot/mug first, then pour the steaming water over the teabag. I only recently started doing this, but I’m stubborn enough that when I’m paying $2.50 for a cup of tea, I want it to taste like tea.

8. I’m not on Facebook. Yet. But so many of my friends are on it that I feel like my resistance will only wear down after a matter of time.

I guess now the rules say I tag more people, right? So…I will go ahead and tag Kelly (Hedgehog knits), Sarah (All Fingers and Thumbs), Marianne, and my see-stor M to post 5+ random facts about themselves, if they haven’t already. In fact, if you haven’t been tagged and would like to be, consider yourself tagged, too. 🙂

I received 2 more books to review last week, so hopefully I will have one of those up by the end of the week! Runway Knits and Knits Three Ways.


  1. I love the Signal Hill shot. Wish I had had time to go there with you 🙂

    I’m with you on Facebook. Nick jumped on board, but I try to be careful of how (and how much) I put my life out there on the internet. I like to keep different parts of my life (work, school, hobbies, social life) a little separate, but it all seems to get blended together when you’re on Facebook. And there are some people from my past who I just don’t want to have contacting me!

  2. Well, I wish I had realised you hadn’t been tagged with one of these meme things, because I would have tagged you! Always interesting to read these random things about bloggers to get a fuller picture (tea and telly in your case?!). And I know that identical twins are supposed to be rather alike, but how on earth did your poor mum and dad know the difference, let alone the rest of civilisation?

  3. Glenna, for some crazy reason I have been missing your updates…a couple of weeks ago (or so) I set up a bloglines thingie and due to my regularly scheduled moments of idiocy had your old blog addy as the one subscribed to. ACK!

    So, now I’m catching up in a big way…thank you for tagging me :^), I’m ‘working’ on it….Facebook? is that a little like MySpace?
    I am so with you on the ‘talking about the tv episodes’, sadly there’s no one around here who cares to really get into discussing in depth…like that Grey’s Anatomy season finale? Oh mercy, I can’t even hardly begin to express how that one left me feeling…..kicked really hard in the stomach is just the tip of the iceberg….I’m with you on ‘Smallville’ also….what gives with that series?
    Beautiful photo!
    I’m off to read more posts. here. and yes, I have the bloglines all straightened out, you haven’t seen the last of me!
