Kate tagged me. I'm not passing it on. Here's a bonus thing about me - I never pass on chain letters of any description.

  1. One of my favourite lines from a movie is Kevin Costner’s speech as Crash Davies in Bull Durham
    "Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.”
  2. I once gave up coffee, chocolate, wine and spicy foods for 2 years. 2 years is a long time. It was a long time for me and a longer time for those who love me.
  3. I have no tolerance for social elites.
  4. Despite possessing a pretty large vocabulary (the Readers’ Digest "Increase your word power" section never held terrors) I use a lot of swear words.
  5. A career advisor once suggested I become a nun. I’m not Catholic but I did attend a Catholic secondary school and was Diocesan Youth Coordinator for the 1987 Papal Visit so it was an easy mistake to make. I suggested as a teacher he might have done his homework better. This was the first time I answered back to an authority figure.
  6. I have a tendency to self-sabotage rooted in self-esteem issues. I’m working on it.
  7. I like quality ….. AND quantity.

#5 was quite funny. Probably a good sign you weren't so supposed to be a nun since answering back to authority doesn't go down too well.

All that giving up, however, kind of says you might have been good at the self denial required!

I never pass on chain letters of any kind either. It doesn't matter if they are the ones that threaten bad things or promise all manner of good things. I generally find them troublesome and then I am afraid of alienating my friends by passing things on to them.

I managed to give up coffee for a couple of years, but I haven't been successful with alcohol or chocolate. A girls got to have SOME fun.

Well, there you go, I had no idea you're a fan of Bull Durham - I LOVE that movie... I need to watch it again - soon!

I'm with you on the chain letter thing too - I mostly don't forward them, although if it's a fun thing sometimes I do.

You would have been a troublesome nun, inciting rebellion all the way! ;)
