Wow. I was totally surprised (and delighted, you know it) that two of my favorite blogs, La Vie Compliquee and Hipster Musings tagged me to reveal 5 things my readers might not know about me. And that was hard because my blog isn't a fashion blog so I pretty much blab about myself, not as much as I did in the beginning, but more than most blogs do.
But I finally figured some things you might not know out.
1. I am a complete sucker for really trashy TV. Flavor of Love? Laguna Beach? I'm there. When I turn on the TV I automatically go to MuchMoreMusic (Canada's version of VH1), MuchMusic(Canada's non-MTV version of MTV) and MTV Canada before anything else.
2. I'm totally tight with Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. Ohhhhkay, not quite. But I have talked to him on the phone. See he organized a little thing that if you donated over $100 to Hurricane Relief, he would call you at home and allow you to ask him one question. My dad, an enormous Beach Boys fan with over 30 records indulged and I made sure I answered the phone.
Brian Wilson: Hi, is Ben there please?
Me: May I ask whose calling? (BUT I already knew, I'm sneaky like that)
Brian Wilson: Brian Wilson.
Me: Oh my god, I love you
Brian Wilson: Thanks. Can I speak to Ben please?
See, we're tight like that.
3. I used to be a huge Michael Jackson fan. Not quite like this chick above, but I was pretty obsessive. Luckily, it proved to be a stage. Michael Jackson's a bit challenging to be loyal to 24-7.4. Every so often, I dig out the *NSYNC. And completely enjoy it. In fact, when my younger cousin asked if I didn't want my *NSYNC CDs anymore, if she could have them and I pretended I didn't know where they were so I wouldn't have to give them up!
5. Once I swallowed a goldfish alive. I heard it was a sort of crazy party trick in the Sixties (hmmm, the Sixties!) and when I was in a really spontaneous mood, I announced my desire to swallow one of the goldfish in my friends pond. So my friends, excited to witness an act of such stupidity, fished out the smallest one they could find and...I swallowed with a glass of water, like an aspirin. It was kinda floppy and my stomach hurt a little later, but for the most part, its just a crazy story I can tell when this exact situation arises.
So now you know a little more about me than you probably should. And I don't know who I should tag, because I don't know who's already been tagged! I would like to know more about Tru from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. And Carissa from Truly, the aberrant. Maya from Rebel and Discotheque Confusion, consider yourselves tagged. And one last person...the final chosen one: dusk&summer.
Sorry, I'm just pulling people off the top of my head. Hope you were amused by my crazy antics.
