"7 Unknown Things" Meme...

Interesting week over on facebook and with my friends on metblogs and our various readers.  A meme started flying.  At first I ducked but eventually I got tagged by Roger Jacobs who has his blog "Carver's Dog" who was tagged by Joseph Mailander who has the "Cocktail Circuit" blog...which I think I need to get hooked on since I do like a nice cocktail every now and then.  That's what we do when we're grown ups finally, right?  Guess the beer bong years are over.

 I have no idea who will respond.  My tagee's will be at the end.  The rules:
1. Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
2. Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
3. Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

7 Unknown Things
1. I eat m&m's in color order, never mixing
2. I weighed a diaper once then tallied how much poo diapers I changed over the years with the kids...nearly 2 tons.  They owe me.  Dearly.
3. I lived in Death Valley for an entire year at Furnace Creek.
4. I never got a ticket I did not deserve.
5. My first speeding ticket I was 3 mph shy of going to jail...in a dealers loaner car.
6. I firmly believe in consumer guerrilla warfare.
7. A martini made with a jalapeno olive doesn't taste as good the second time around.

Now if you really want an eye full you'll have to friend me on facebook and check out my 25 things note on that meme from hell.  

Now for my taggees: West Coast Grrlie Blather, Mademoiselle Gramophone, The Aaron Proctor Effect, Pasadena Daily Photo,  Pasadena PIO,  [sic], Julia's Mexico City, Xanga, and for good measure The 99 Cent Chef.  It could be worse...you can pick your 7 and it doesn't have to follow a theme.

I wish I didn't have to know that about you. Gadzooks.

1. I don't know seven people.

2. I am a nonconformist.

3. I always read the rules backwards.

4. I love Felt.

5. I am obsessed with bloating. What causes it? Why? Is it connected to anythng? Do fish have this problem? Did Kurt Vonnegut ever feel bloated? Is it worse and night or in the morning? Will gin help?

6. I once spilled the entire contents of my purse in front of the bandstand on the pavement at the drag strip in Irwindale and someone actually took a picture of the whole thing.

7. I slept overnight in Central Park in Pasadena when I was 17.

Mme. Gramophone takes the win for the most creative response to a meme. I wish I thought of it.

Not a fan of tagging, but since I like you, Fraz, I'll do this right now.

1. I won the spelling bee for my middle school in 7th grade.

2. I once went to Canter's Deli and sat next to Rodney Bingenheimer the whole time....too bad I'd just moved to LA and didn't know who the hell he was!

3. Mme Gramophone likes my Port Richmond stizyle.

4. I'm not allergic to Poison Ivy. True story.

5. Steve Madison thought Mme Gramophone was my girlfriend. Also a true story.

6. I like ketchup on burgers I order at restaurants but yellow mustard on burgers I make at home.

7. I thought I had mono once. Turns out I was just reading a Larry Wilson column.
