for those of you who don't know me from facebook...a bit of recycling...

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

1. every once in a while i take an entire day off and don't do anything at all. not even be among people...or talk. i call this my "alone day." i've only done a successful alone day with one other person...jodie newlander.

2. i think peanut butter and butter sandwiches are haut cuisine and would eat them all day and night if possible.

3. i am the oldest living belle—even older than andrea mcardle.

4. i didn't learn to drive until i was 35 and that was on the 101 south in l.a., screaming "i'm merging, i'm merging, oh my GOD i'm merging" out my open window.

5. i was an opera singer until i was 30 (and not a good one...that is a fact...objective not subjective). that's why i'm so loud.

6. i have a pixie-face pinhead (again...fact...i wear children's eye-glasses).

7. as a sophomore in high school i made a bet with my spanish teacher and by eating a half gallon of ice cream in 15 minutes i got an "a." gracias "hot jose."

8. i have sung in something like 15 languages.

9. i can be polite in 8 languages... it greases the world's wheels.

10. i believe TaB cola is nectar of the gods.

11. if i buy a new article of clothing and absolutely love it, i have to sleep in it the first night. this include shoes.

12. i’m worried that people are going to think my 25 random things are boringly random…or randomly boring.

13. i like to buy jeanette winterson's "the passion," read it for the umpteenth time and than give it away.

14. i got into yale without taking achievement tests.

15. a review once said i showed about as much passion as if i'd heard about a sale on paper towels. i took this as a very high compliment.

16. i still wear the overalls my brothers bought for my 12th birthday.

17. as a child i tried to be a dog (ate from his dish and drank from his bowl) and a boy (peed standing up). i think i had some identity issues.

18. i cried every day in school until the 4th grade. always thought it was about need to be “perfect.” recently realized it was about my innate incapability of doing what was expected of me (see #17).

19. i introduced myself to the chinese minister of culture as "banana hot fudge sundae." he did not speak english.

20. i come from short-legged flat-assed people. what happened?

21. i like to wear a tiara when i clean.

22. i weighed 98 pounds when i entered college and 150 when i left. I WAS HALF AGAIN MYSELF.

23. i think if "it's a wonderful life" were required viewing, the world would be a much better place.

24. when i drink i steal things. like bowling balls. luckily i don't drink much anymore.

25. sometimes i fall down.

tag, you're it. i wish someone from morocco or ghana would send me their 25...
