More Wendy Randomness

Jace tagged me with this latest meme making the blog rounds. Since my reading seems to have stalled out at the moment, I figured it would make good filler.

Here are the rules:

1. Link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six unimportant things about you.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your blog entry.
5. Let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  • I'm addicted to tea. Mostly black teas. I'm not a huge fan of herbal tea unless I'm sick, but green tea has grown on me over the years. I also like to drink my tea sweetened. Sugar will do in a pinch, but my poison of choice is honey. My cure for the common cold? Drink enough hot tea to float your kidneys. I swear by it. It won't cure you overnight, but I swear my tea drinking accounts for the fact that my colds don't tend to "linger."
  • I could watch Law & Order non-stop, for days on end. The original Law & Order. The cops on SVU are too whiny, and the only reason I got hooked on Criminal Intent is because they brought back the Mike Logan character. Oh how I lurve me some Mike Logan. Regular Law & Order was slipping for a while (Jerry Orbach's passing left a vacuum), but it's been pretty good so far this year. They gave Det. Green another male partner, Lt. Van Buren still kicks major butt, and watching Jack McCoy deal with politics is fun in a perverse sort of way.
  • I have two different thumbs. No joke. I have a short, stubby thumb (like my mom's) and a longer, skinny thumb with a larger nail-bed (like my dad's). I'm a freak.
  • I often say I became a librarian because I was failing high school geometry. My junior year I was doing dismal in geometry and it was pulling my GPA down. I didn't "need" the class to graduate, so at the end of the semester I dropped it in favor of working in the school library. I thought it would be a cake-walk. Imagine my surprise that the librarian actually wanted to teach me something and I wanted to learn. At 16, my fate was sealed.
  • When I was in college I would joke that I wouldn't date a guy who was older than my oldest sister (5 years older than me) or younger than my youngest sister (3 years younger than me). You guessed it - I broke the rule both ways. I dated a guy who was one year older than Older Sis and The Boyfriend is one month younger than Lil' Sis.
  • I used to work at Arby's. To this day I still know how to properly clean a meat slicer. Surprisingly enough, I still love to eat at Arby's. It's my favorite fast food.
Who am I going to tag? No one. Honestly, I think I'm the last blogger in Blog Land to tackle this meme.

I am the biggest L&O junkie! SVU and CI are my favorite shows! Yesterday there was a CI marathon on and me and my friend sat there for 3 hours!!
Bobby is my dream man.. well Elliott is also.. and then there is Chris aka Mike. The L&O men are so hot! They need a calendar.

Alie said...

Oh how I lurve me some Mike Logan.

Oh, I'm in the same boat! Old school L&O with Mike is the best. Mike/Lenny were the best team. I'm also addicted to L&O: Criminal Intent on dvd right now because I have a fierce crush on Vincent D'Onofrio *sigh*.

Lynn said...

Wendy, looks like your L&O fact is the most popular. I totally agree with you-I still miss Lennie, McCoy and Cutter are like the new generation of McCoy and Schiff, and I started watching CI for Logan. I gave up on SVU, especially once Munch became non-existant. Tea is my drink of choice too, I drink almost a gallon a day on my days off.

Big Sis said...

You did you date that's older than me?

Wendy said...

Lynn: Less Munch? Now I'm really glad I hardly watch SVU anymore.

Alie: Mike/Lenny were the best detective team. D'Onofrio is growing on me. For a long time I found his character way too smug, but they've been adding more about his personal life so that's been helping. And I love Eames! Gawd, how I adore her!

Big Sis: The Lawyer was/is one year older than you. Isn't that cute? I give all my exes nicknames, and not all of them are curse words....

Big Sis said...

"lawyer" is a curse word.

Like you, I love black tea, L&O, and did terribly at geometry, although I got the highest grade in algebra.

My husband is almost 3 years younger, although I have no siblings by which to measure him.
