Sing a lonely song/ Of a deep blue dream/ Seven horses seem/ To be on the mark

nablopomo2008color.jpgStarting out NaNoWriMo with a meme! This bodes well for the rest of the month. *rolls eyes* Oh well, it's about time I got around to doing a meme I was tagged for several weeks ago!

Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog - some random, some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. If you don’t have 7 blog friends, or if someone else already took dibs, then tag some unsuspecting strangers.
  1. My ears are slightly different heights, which would have been no problem if I were born with 20/20 vision. Unfortunately I wasn't, which means that any glasses I buy must be flexible enough to be bent to compensate for my ears. For some reason I never seem to have problems finding $9 sunglasses that do this - just the expensive prescription eyeglasses.
  2. Speaking of myopia, my prescription is -4.75 in the left eye and -6.00 in the right. I've always remembered that my Left eye's prescription is Lower. I'd better hope that my eyes don't do any more growing and change that rule, or I'll be walking around with the wrong contacts in the wrong eyes.
  3. You know those canisters that Pillsbury biscuits come in, and which make a POP! when you open them? Those scare me every time, even when I am the one opening them and should be prepared for the noise. Last time I made biscuits, I actually yelped out loud when it happened.
  4. My bedroom is decorated in purple because one of the first scenes in Bridget Jones 2: The Edge of Reason was in Bridget's bedroom, and her bed had purple sheets. So my room was pretty much decorated based on what color of sheets Colin Firth looks best wrapped in. So far, unfortunately, this has not succeeded in attracting Colin Firth to my bedroom, which must have been the plan that my subconscious was making when I thought, "Colin Firth looks good in purple sheets. I guess that's the color for me."
  5. When I fantasize about job hunting again, my top priorities are:
    1. A university I would want to work for/job I would like
    2. Must be in the Eastern Time Zone (I might be willing to bend this rule for a very good job on Central time, but who starts prime time television at 7pm? Honestly! Come on!)
    3. Has a Gilbert and Sullivan society
  6. My hair is very fine and demands to stay straight, to the point where hairstylists have to use tons and tons of hairspray if they want my hair to curl and stay curled for more than an hour or so. Most hairstyling magazines and websites cover "straight hair" or "fine hair" but not "straight, fine hair". This explains, in part, why when I added a friend on Facebook who I haven't seen in eight years, she said, "You look EXACTLY the same!" Yeah, my hair style hasn't changed at all in about ten years.
  7. I once dreamt that I opened a closet door in my apartment and found a dog there, which I had bought months before and forgotten about. He had survived somehow and was perfectly happy, but very eager for attention. My current apartment doesn't allow pets, but even if it did, I would be worried about having one because I'm afraid the dream reflects my own irresponsibility.

Thank goodness I'm not the only one who's terrified to open those biscuit containers! I always peel the outside wrapping bit really slowly, in the hopes that doing it slowly will make the noise less loud.
Also, I have fine, straight hair, too, so I know exactly what you're talking about. My hair falls out of any kind of style in about 5 minutes, so I rarely ever bother trying to do something with it.

Congratulations, I have no idea. If I googled it, I would have points removed, whereas everyone else gets Google points.

I used to dream that I opened a closet door or otherwise suddenly found a BABY I had forgotten about, with more dire results than your dog showed. eek. I interpretted the dream pretty much the same as your interpretation.

To guess the song in the title, it may help to sing the last line pausing between each word.

I googled it. I had no idea that that was the title of that song. Also, I'm not ALL that familiar with the song.

Didn't your sister already win the game ?

gravatar srah - November 3, 2008 - 8:36 AM -

Every year we can start anew! So far, no one is winning because no one has guessed anything. I guess I'd better lob a few softballs in the next couple of days.

That's one down!

That dog dream is very similar to one I had a few weeks ago. Except, instead of a dog, it was a baby...
