Seven is a good number for me. Particularly this year. On the seventh day of the seventh month of the seventh year of 2000, I will turn an age that is a multiple of seven. And actually, I’m not into numbers. No, really.

So when V tagged me for seven things… how could I say no?

1. My hair started going gray when I was 18. Nowadays if I let it go, it would easily be more than half gray. Of course in periods of high stress (like this move) I tend to let the roots go. It’s always very sobering.

2. I have a not so secret affinity for all things Scooby. I actually have a good sized box of items packed up that is all Scooby stuff. Magnets, toys, stuffed animals, stickers… I even have a bumper sticker that says “What would Scooby Doo?”

3. I have a fundamental aversion to cleaning. It just seems there are so many better things to do. Of course I am regretting this aversion now, with six days til moving day and a bunch of people coming to my apartment, but oh well. Sleep is overrated.

4. I have a bunch of port wine stains on the bottom of my feet. When I was pregnant I was terrified that the babies would end up with them on their faces. I always feel self conscious about them when I get a pedicure.

5. I think I am addicted to diet pepsi. No really. I know the chemical cocktail is not good for me, but I’ve tried to quit (subbing in other caffeine) and I’m more afraid to quit than I am of drinking it.

6. Back when I was thin (before the boys) and pseudo-single, I had very long hair. I dressed up as Pocahontas for the Halloween street party and braided it. I got so much attention that I wore the same costume the next year. Best costume ever.

7. I was a National Merit Scholar and blew a full ride my first time at college by basically just not going to classes my 2nd year. Not my finest hour.

I am the anti-tag. But if you haven’t done this one, you should. It was fun!

    I like gray hair. I particularly like the way it looks when hair is part dark, part gray. Very cool.

    I wonder what’s in that diet pepsi stuff.

    (Late) thank you for doing the seven things meme! 🙂

    Funny about Scooby Doo… I have a few things, not so many as you, but my small collection was prompted by my dog, who really reminds me of the goofy cartoon dog.

    Is that your new home in the post above? It’s adorable! I hope your move goes smoothly.
