So I've Been Tagged

I got tagged by the Skinny Black Chick...

The rules of the game are:
A). Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog...
B). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself...
C). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs...
D). Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

  1. I went through a period in college, where I was obsessed with the movie The Exorcist. Actually, the movie, the book, the screenplay and every little facet or detail I could gather from the internet. The very idea of demonic posession fascinated me and I needed to find out all I could about the origins, the myths, the makings and so on. I'm pretty much over that now.
  2. My eyes are lined up correctly. They are actually crooked. So to compensate, I have a tendence to tilt my head slightly to the left, which makes me feel straight. Even though I'm crooked.
  3. I love candied yams but I hate sweet potatoes! Ick! And I won't eat sweet potatoe pie either cause when you cut it, it has strings in it and I find that repulsive. As if its made of man-made material. Blech!
  4. I used to think Soul Train was filmed in Baltimore when I was little. It just looked so local. I also thought the video The Message by Grandmaster Flash was also filmed and about Baltimore. I thought it was filmed around the corner from me. It just looked like it.
  5. I never originally had ambitions or plans to go to college. My original plan was to move out to Beverly Hills at the age of 18 and somehow get 'discovered' walking down the street or something. Yeah I had it all planned out. I hate school, classrooms, teachers and learning. I was anti-school. But my guidance counselor talked me into it halfway through my senior year and I gave in and decided to give it a try. Glad I did.
  6. When I was little, I used to be afriad of the production taglines they used to show at the end of TV shows, like Paramount, Universal, MGM and so on. Don't know why, but I'd jump under my covers when they came on like an alien was trying to comunicate with me from the TV world. I dunno.
  7. Also when I was little, I used to get insanely jealous of kid actors who got to sing and dance on TV. Drove me mad that they had that opportunity that I didn't. I HATED all the kids in Kids Incoporated including that blonde girl, Stacey Ferguson, who is now known as Fergie from Black Eyed Peas (of which I'm a fan, love the CD). I just felt like they were flaunting my face that they were famous and on TV and I wasn't.

So there you go. You've learned more about me.

I always though candied yams and sweet potatoes were the same thing. Guess that shows you about my culinary experience.

When I was younger,I thought everything was filmed in Cleveland. Star Search, Who's the Boss. Everything. So, you're not alone on that one.

Those endcards on the TV shows are evil signals, but they aren't alient. No many people realize that the endcards from TV shows contain a plesaant tone that's just outside the conciously audible frequency of the human ear that triggers an association to the program you just watched with the pleasure center of your brain that subliminally causes you to crave viewing the program again regardless of the actual quality of the content provided.

This theory is actually proven by the fact that there have been 8 seasons of Big Brother. Unfortunately, because the tone is impossible to hear, it is sometimes recorded incorrectly and thusly has the opposite intended effect.
