7 Facts Meme

I was tagged by Black Cat to do the seven random facts meme.  Here are the rules:

* Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog;

* Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself;

* Tag 7 random people at the end of your post & include links to their blogs;

* Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I am having some trouble coming up with seven random facts about me that I haven't mentioned before and that would at least be interesting.

1.  I really, really like Doctor Who.  I have copies of the entire original series and am now collecting the new series as it comes out.  I also have the novels, the audios of the missing stories and most of the Big Finish audios.

2. I don't have to trim my hair, except to even it off.  It grows down to the middle of my back and stops.

3. I am clumsy with my feet.  I have broken most of my toes and six of my metatarsals at various times, starting when I was a child and slid into first base playing whiffleball.  First base was a tree.  I broke my left big toe.

4.  I love musicals and have quite a bunch of them on tape and DVD.

5. I am a night person.  I don't do well early in the morning at all.  I volunteered to work the afternoon-evening shift all the time, much to the delight of my co-workers, who hate working the last shift in the deli.

6. I like working jigsaw puzzles.  I used to spend a lot of time at JigZone before I started blogging.

7. I love reading science fiction, fantasy and mysteries.  Every once in a while I will read a history book, a biography, or a science book, but mostly I read fiction.

I will tag:

Aelou, Chancy, Vincent and Mike, Sly, Nikita and Angus.

Mom is a big fiction reader, too, and as you know, she's a writer -- she's working on a mystery novel! *smile* And that's really neat that you don't have to trim your hair! Mom does, but I don't. You must be part cat! *giggle*!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Mom loves jigsaw puzzles and reading fantasy, sci fi and murder mysteries. She was also very clumsy (I mean totally without grace) then she started karate and got more coordinated. She broke her right pinkie toe while in Virgina Beach, on vacation. Slammed it against the door frame of the bathroom. Landed in the hall.
Nice things to know about you. Hope all is well.

My Mommy is the opposite - mornings are her "get it done" time. She's worthless in the evening!

It was fun learning about you Karen Jo.My mom likes JigZone too :)

MoMo said...

Anything is interesting to a new kitty blogger who really doesn't know much about anykitty or -body!

Black Cat said...

Thank you so much for doing the meme Karen Jo; your answers are so interesting. I used to have long hair at times but now I think I'm too old so I get it cut now and again, but like you, mine would just grow to the middle of my back and stop. I'm also very nocturnal, love sci fi, fantasy and mysteries and I love doing puzzles of most kinds. I am also very clumsy on my feet and fall over a lot, particularly in the house where I tend to move quicker because I forget to take care. Are we kindred spirits? Oh, I have also been known to pen the odd ode but I'm not nearly as good at it as you:) xxx

Mickey said...

Interesting stuff. You and Mom ahve things in common. She likes science fiction,fantasy and mysteries.She liked Dr Who,especially played by Tom Baker and she is a night owl(I don't think she looks like an owl)

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Karen we have so much in common here! I also am a late night purrrrson who liked to work jig saw puzzles with my dear mommy who departed after Miss Peach took her into her little Hospice kitty paws. HAHA she broke one of her toes once by bumping it into the marble coffee table becasue she was being nosey and looking out the window to see what the neighbor was doing:))
I also loved working the late shift in the deli at Albertsons:)
