8 Little Known Facts or Stupidity Goes MIA

While I was busy pondering which case of stupidity I should next discuss, I was tagged by Mary at Motherwise to do a meme. Although I’ve looked up the definition of meme, had it explained to me with great care, and have even been quizzed on it using flash cards, I am still uncertain as to its exact meaning. What I do know is I’m going to reveal 8 little known facts about me:

1. I’m nearsighted and have been since the age of thirteen.

2. Although I’m exceedingly vain and don’t like to wear glasses, the mere thought of lasers, shiny tools, and suction rings (yes, I am a coward) conjures up visions of being strapped to a table and writhing under a blinding light while unseen voices whisper about me. Hence my myopic vision continues. I alternate between glasses, contacts and viewing the world through a lens that appears to have been coated in Vaseline. That’s good for people around me as physical flaws are nonexistent.

3. To make up for the physical flaws I can’t see, mental flaws are magnified.

4. I have an uncanny ability of killing off houseplants. I haven’t figured out whether it’s homicide or suicide as I have a knack of subjecting them to stressful situations.

5. I’m devoted to nursing plants back to health that I’ve almost killed. Here are pictures of one prime example:

6. I volunteer once a week at the local library, good girl that I am.

7. Although I fervently disavow big city life and its hordes of intellectually undernourished, counterfeit humans, I visit the city often. But I’m sure to make contemptuous remarks upon exiting.

8. I am a procrastinator. But I have a good reason for being one: I work best under pressure.

There you have it! Eight little known facts that probably should remain just that: little known. Thanks again to Mary for giving me a much needed day off stupidity! Whew! It can be exhausting. Now it’s my turn to tag bloggers to reveal 8 little known facts about themselves – Dawn at Twisted Sister, Agnes at HexMyEx and footiam at Beautiful World.

Keep thinking!

    Thanks for the tag – meme complete! For your information, I had the laser surgery. It’s a lot less daunting than you imagine and waking up to clarity the next day is one of the most amazing experiences you can have. Pluck up your courage and go for it!

    Hey, I didn’t know you tag me until I read this post. Thanks! I’ll look into this. And I like the rose. You did a good job to the empty pot.

    We have procrastination in common and I too, work better under pressure. I have also killed my share of houseplants including a 13-year old rubber plant that was spectacular. Thanks for the glimpse into your world.

    What a green thumb you have! May I bring my killed-off plants to you?

    I think there’s a P.U. group. Procrastinators Unite. Unfortunately, they keep putting their meetings off.

    Have you thought of opening a houseplant hospital? Or do you make house calls? I had 2 apple trees and 1 apricot tree.
    The first year I moved into my house, I had so much fruit that I called my friends & family to come and pick. After 2 years, my trees died. I kind of forgot to water them. I learned my lesson. The hard way.
