Tagged and bagged

Stewie tagged me for a survey, so here goes!

Eight Random Facts

(1) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
(2) People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
(3) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
(4) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I love to write, but for my money, the best part of studying creative writing was that I avoided any and all college math.

2. I love action and horror movies, but I have a soft spot for romantic comedies. Even the girlie ones.

3. Because I used to live alone and my favorite DVD site has an adult affiliate, I would buy porno discs for friends who were married or lived with their parents.

4. In "Chicken Soup for the Soul,"there's a story about the Babylift that says due to bad records and red tape, they needed to make up birth certificates for some babies. My birthday falls on a holiday (Feb. 12, Lincoln's birthday) and ever since I read that story, I've wondered if that's really my birthday, or if Valentine's Day lost the coin flip.

5. As a child, I somehow managed to (inadvertently) decapitate all but one of my Princess Leia "Star Wars" figures. The heads just popped right off! And it never happened to any of the men!

6. I have a small teddy bear in my desk at work that I fished out of the trash when someone else was cleaning out their desk, because I just couldn't bear (no pun intended) to see it sitting there all cute and sad and going in the garbage.

7. I like to read in the bathroom as much as the next guy, but sometimes I play video games on my cell phone. And I wonder every time I do if that's abnormal.

8. I've interviewed Major League baseball players, NFL players and NHL players, but I can't recall ever interviewing a basketball player from a higher level than high school.

At the end of his meme, Stewie wrote:

I don’t have that many blog friends, and since our blog friendships are one big incestuous relationship, I’m actually surprised I have people I can still tag. So, without further ado, here they are: Hot, Fnord, Ace, Mitch, Aric and Red. I’m fairly certain Freak and Lesley were already tagged. If not, you two, also.

And for crying out loud, I'm pretty sure that means, between them and those they tagged, pretty much everyone I know has been tagged by now. So if you're reading this, darn it, I'm taking the coward's way out and saying:
