I've been tagged by Bethany over at Vegology.
1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Random fact #1: I've always had a fear of escalators. When I was little, I heard stories about a mystery kid in some mystery town who got his shoe laces stuck in the escalator and he was literally torn up and had to get millions of stitches. Ever since then, I've been super-nervous when I get on and off escalators.
Random fact #2: I'm trying to write a lit review on social movement theories. I don't want to do it, so I waste time looking at blogs and checking my email every 5 minutes.
Random fact #3: I hated onions until I went vegan.
Random fact #4: For the past few weeks, I've been going to bed with socks on every night. But at some point I get hot and kick them off, so there are a few pairs of socks between the sheets at the end of the bed.
Random fact #5: I've never gotten my driver's license. When I turned 21 I had to get my permit renewed so I would have ID to bring to the bar. I ride a hot pink and green bike that I got for $15 instead.
Random fact #6: Andy and I have been out to dinner 1 time in 2007. Townsville isn't terribly vegan-friendly.
Random fact #7: My kitchen is still pathetically understocked. I don't own a muffin/cupcake tin, potato masher, rolling pin, or any other fancy gadgets. It was only two weeks ago that I bought a (second-hand) mixing bowl, and a month before that we got a cookie sheet.
Random fact #8: I'm 22 and working on a PhD, which doesn't seem that weird to me, but nearly all of my fellow students are old enough to be my parents!
I'm going to ignore rules 5 and 6, and not tag anyone. I have seen this meme around at most people's blogs, but if you haven't participated yet, consider yourself tagged!
