Avoiding Reality with a Fun Survey

This serious-topic-avoidance survey was provided to me by A Blog of Her Own. (Thanks! Even I am sick of my own drama at this point…)

Here are the rules:
Link to the person who tagged you.
Post the rules on your blog.
Share six (6) non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
Tag at least 3 people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Six Things About Me 

1. If possible, I eat brownies for breakfast. Every time there are brownies in the house, I can’t resist. Luckily, I avoid keeping them around at all costs. I currently have healthy whole-grain cereal instead, but it’s just not as good.

2. I am a social activist who worries about being a sell-out, to the point of distraction. Sometimes I don’t think I’ll have “made it” until I can go to work in torn jeans. 

3. I can’t resist the call of more graduate school. I was pretty sure law school had permanently scratched that itch, but now I suspect it won’t rest until I have a PhD. Of course, as my sister the Yuppie informs me, I can go for free when I’m 65, so I should just hold on until I pay off the last few degrees.

4. I cannot eat cold cuts because they taste like mayonnaise to me. And I hate mayo.

5. If anyone really knew how little sleep I survive on, they would lock me away for a long, long time. I have been known to go days on three hours a night. It doesn’t make me a nice person, but I can semi-function.

6. I currently rent my sofa. There, I’ve said it. It should be paid off by August, but until then, I am two missed paychecks away from losing my used furniture. If I worry about money a bit much, you’ll have to excuse me. Sobering, but true. It’s so hard to be glamorous on rented furniture.

And as for tags, these go out to three bloggers I read often: Naked on the Roof, Lina from Three City Gals, and Rebecca. (my apologies if you’ve already gotten similar invites…)

Go check them out, if you get the chance!

    Why can you go to school for free at 65?

    Eleanor: Many states and colleges offer free tuition for senior citizens. It’s always been my fallback plan for my later years.
