seriously, who ARE you?

I've just realized that the readership of this blog might actually be quite a bit farther-reaching than I thought. While the mystery and anonymity are some of the perks of blogging (I write not knowing who's reading, and you read without being noticed), I'm curious. Let's try a little interactive experiment. If you're reading this, leave a comment (there, in the bottom right of this post, JoJo and Bobby, just click on the word "comment," type in the box, copy the weirdly shaped letters and hit enter) and tell me the most ridiculous thing you can remember about me.

And don't worry, these little busy-work posts will be replaced by some serious writing in the very near future. Until then, you get to entertain me. It's a give and a take, people, a give and a take.

Oh you do realize this could get dangerous. :c) Mwhaha.

I can't help it. It's almost boring. But I seriously was a big fan of your toasted cheese and mustard sandwiches per my obtuse request. But you fulfilled them like a champ.

And just so you know my new favorite cd is The Essential Johnny Cash. I plan to tell someone how I walk the line tonight.

I appreciate the link to my "Gospel Messenger" blog and the traffic (yes, there are a few people who link in through "Authenticity") it brings in. And so I periodically check in on your blog.

Dana - not only is this the most ridiculous thing about you but also incriminates me...

You and I both thought (on separate occasions and in separate conversations) that eggs were a dairy product. Yes, we still hold firm to the fact even though we are wrong...but it just makes so much sense!

Ogle said...

I was quite appalled at your ridiculous worship of a stock market card game.

Nicole said...

Ridiculous thing about you....hmmm...well, its not about you as much as it is about Candler and that, my friend, is ConEd.

steph said...

i don't really know you that well. so i actually don't remember anything ridiculous you have done except being friends with Jay. Which I guess in and of its self can be pretty ridiculous.

JoJo said...

I wasn't there but I heard about a mashed potato fight in the cafeteria when you were in the first grade--that's it. You are pretty much sane!

Dana said...

woohoo, jojo, you figured it out!

rgcassell said...

I typed in throwing potatoes at school lunch before JOJO showed me what she wrote. So the next thing is going to DC to the Kennedy Center in Washington and backing out after you got to the bus. Surprised me.

Karen said...

How do you pronounce "lapel?"

Candace said...

hmmm, ridiculousness and Dana... I think it might be ridiculous that you are one of the few people in the world who has completely agreed with me about loving finals time. In fact, I think you appreciate it more than I do. Ridiculous!

well - there was the time you sampled all the peaches from your car seat, won the spelling bee @ school, mowed the yard and could not connect the lines, the time you got your sister on tape singing the same thing over and over

I read your blog rather faithfully but have never left a comment.
and althought we have now been friends almost two years we seem to have a rather mild mannered time together.
But when I shared a wall with your apartment I remember hearing you and Katie laughing and playing the drums and I got a little jealous.

Beth said...

Well, my roommate, I'm sure we have done some ridiculous things -- swinging at TV past midnight, moving the couch slightly to the right and then slightly to the left again, living in a retirement community...

You, singlular, are quite an odd duck, despite what your relatives may believe. What with the switch decisions about parties you had been stoked to attend, your obsession with coffee shops and boy-cut tshirts, your nickname "B" which is the exact middle letter of your whole name, your need to have the exact same flip flops you're replacing, your undying love of all things academic, and your ability to disappear for an entire day... (none of those seem quite as odd when typed, but I promise that in reality they are weird).

But the best is that
You've got Soul
but you're not a Soldier.

Beth has already covered a lot of ground with her observations. (Which shows that, whether or not Beth has idiosyncrecies, you certainly do.) The most ridiculous thing I've ever observed about you is how you love the Gilmore Girls as if they were real people. (Some people in this world have big foreheads and it's okay to admit that Rory is one of them.)

actually, i've never click on you profile before...oopsie




(by the way this is Emily Hannah)

& a ridiculous thing about you is that when we were little i sat in you lap & you automatically knew that it was "read a story now!...please time"

you're also the best spinner arounder in the entire universe, which might be smaller than you think, but is still large enough for that title to mean something

(Emily Hannah again)

Travis Poling said...

I remember that you traveled to Indiana, which is pretty ridiculous (although Manchester rocks!). That's about it. Sorry. We didn'tchat much at the conference, but I've been diggin' your blog since I found it.

Erudite Redneck said...

I don't recall anything ridiculous about you! You seem to be thoughty and a little angsty and a lot of kindly. :-)

I second Jess on the toasted cheese and mustard sandwiches, esp following the leafe.

But my favorite memory of you in general is sitting on your bed at nicholas 207 and having long conversations about everything and nothing.

I blog because you blog.
If you can write about butter, I can write about whatever I want, too. :) Keep in touch, woman!
