I have seventy-nine things left to add to my "101 Things About Me" list after this entry. (See also: part one, part two, and part three.) I am cleverly mashing together that project with this meme, since I'm really lazy and a fan of killing multiple birds.

My laziness also dictates that I will not be tagging anyone, which you can thank me for later. Although, if you'd like to steal this idea for your own blog, feel free to pretend I tagged you. I won't tell anyone.

Onward.

  1. I like sucking the butter and salt off of the unpopped kernels at the bottom of a bowl of popcorn. I then spit the kernels back into the bowl when I'm done with 'em. I also eat the actual popcorn by lapping up pieces like a dog. You probably shouldn't share popcorn with me ever.
  2. I always keep a pirate bandage, a SpongeBob SquarePants bandage, and a Curious George bandage in my purse in case of an emergency. It's important to have a variety of ways to decorate a papercut.
  3. Going back-to-school shopping is my favorite thing to do ever.
  4. Over three months of my life have been spent watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
  5. I rotate through intense cereal cravings. One month, nothing will suffice but Fruit Loops. The next week, I'll kill my own family members to get a hold of some Crispix. Next, it's Lucky Charms or Rice Krispies. You probably shouldn't eat breakfast with me ever.
  6. I lied on my eye exam in second grade because all the other kids were getting glasses. Sometimes, I wonder how long I could've gone without them.
  7. I got the nickname "Cookie" by dressing up as a giant chocolate chip cookie in high school for "Superhero Day" during Spirit Week. Wal*mart didn't have any other decent costumes, so I made my own "superhero" and handed out chocolate chips all day.

The day after I got Lasik, I had to go back in to the ophthalmologist's office to do a "next-day" eye exam. It was the same chart as the day before, and I had memorized it all down to the 20-5 line. So I just started spouting them off before they put it up.

They weren't pleased.

What about Captain Crunch? I do believe he was a pirate, though they don't ever actually SAY so. I do remember in the 80's a cereal box contest to find the buried treasure. Yes, I do believe Captain Crunch was a pirate.

Wasn't Cookie the name of the Murloc on VanCleef's ship? (uhm... is it geeky bringing up WoW here?)

Thursday's Child - There's a lot of cheating in the world of eye care. Mayhaps they should do something about that.

Jace of Fuse! - We never bought Captain Crunch when I was growing up, and I've only eaten it once since then. :( Thankfully, it doesn't make me any less of a pirate to eat Fruit Loops instead.

And yes, Cookie was the name of the Murloc. That's one of the few things I helped to kill in that whole dungeon. I refused to partake in killing the pirates, so I just stood back and healed people. Thankfully, as the leader of a guild called Pillage and Plunder, my minions were okay with this. Annnd enough of that.

My sister does the popcorn thing, but does not seem to think that this means she should not share our bowls.

Hmm.

You spit them BACK into the bowl? So eventually you're fishing through a pile of spit-ridden kernals for a salty one? Mmmmmmmmkay.

As for methods of eating, I take a huge handful, much more than I can possibly fit in my mouth, and shove my face into it, then pretend I'm a vacuum. S'good.

kate - (Thanks for reading and commenting and all that jazz!!) I eat my popcorn with my fingers when I'm sharing with others. I'd be massively uncomfortable licking someone else's popcorn. :\ I almost wish I was bold enough to not care for once.

Tez - Well, it's not like they're covered in drool. They go back into the bowl as dry as possible. But yeah, still. I know.

I love that it is still socially acceptable to eat popcorn in an uncivilized manner. Whoever invented the stuff should be knighted for not attaching any rules on "proper eating styles."

Although, when the fat guy who sat next to me at my second or third viewing of one of the LOTR films had his popcorn bouncing OUT OF HIS MOUTH and OFF OF HIS BELLY and then INTO MY LAP, I kinda wanted to kill the popcorn inventor man.

While I don't often lap up popcorn like a dog, I was once scolded by a 6-year-old for the way I was shoveling handfuls of popcorn into my mouth. She then demonstrated to me how I should eat one kernel at a time.

I would be happy to eat breakfast with you, as long as we had all the right cereal in place. I'm a big cereal fan in general. It's my favorite dinner.

alejna - I love that a six-year-old had the guts to correct your popcorn-eating habits! That kid's parents must be very proud. :)

And yay! Cereal is my favorite dinner, too! Well, except for pizza, maybe. I'm actually planning to eat cereal for at least two meals a day until I shed all my Thanksgiving weight. I'm not sure that's an effective dieting plan, but it sure will be tasty.
