Meme Mania

The resident Bad Girl 'round these parts tagged me - oh, weeks and weeks ago - and I'm just getting around to this meme.

But first, the rules:
A) Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog
B) Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
C) Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs
D) Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

'cept I'm not going to follow all of the rules. I'm not big into picking and choosing and tagging. So. If you want to do this, you should consider yourself very tagged. Wheeee!

1. I miss being a complete social reject. Before I was friends with the rest of The Girls and Lucy was in Thailand or not spending every minute of her free time with me, before Colin came around and shook up my entire existence, I had a lot of Friday and Saturday nights at home. I'd watch television and wear sweats and go to bed really early. I miss that time by myself and I miss that time alone with my family. And I really, really miss not being so damn tired.

2. One of the best parts about moving in with my parents is waking my dad up when I get home at night. He is always confused and disoriented and says the most random and illogical things. Then, in the morning, he doesn't remember the conversation we had but Mom and I do so we laugh at him (and the stupid shit he said) for hours on end. And it is fun.

3. I am a sucker for a compliment. At my soccer game yesterday, for example, we were playing this girl who was ridiculously skilled. We knew this because we've played with (and against) this girl a million times over. Standing at the sidelines, bitching about our fate, one of my teammates said "oh well, you're way prettier than she is anyway." At that moment, I considered asking her to be my best friend.

4. I am terrified that I will get my master's degree and still not be able to find a decent job in my field. It happened with my undergraduate degree from a very good school, so I can't see what it couldn't happen again.

5. I'm okay with losing. Someone who plays as many sports with the frequency that I do should probably be ubercompetitive, but even playing on a team that loses nearly every game really doesn't bother me all that much. I guess I am one of those rare gems who play due to a true love of the game. Huh.

6. I bake better than I cook. Way, way better. It is just because I have far more experience baking. Putting an entire meal together is hard! It takes timing and planning AND effort. I'm just starting to get good at it.

7. I just got coffee for the coach of an Olympic gold medallist. If that gives you any idea of what kind of job I have. And how important I am at that job.

See...I cook better than I bake. Mostly I just can't bake brownies....they are always burned on the outside of the pan and raw in the middle.

You'll find a job. Don't worry about that.

I'm with you on the being ok with losing... as long as it was a good game. Whenever my team loses, I always analyze my own performance and then either feel really bad about how I let the team down or okay with it. Pathetic, really.
