i was tagged by the babysitter and G6

Book Meme

Here are the rules:
Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same.

Not all your hide would tempt me in the least. TARTUFFE: girl, speak more modestly; unless you do, i shall be forced to take my leave of you. DORINE: Oh, no, it's i who must be on my way; I've just one little message to convey. Madame is coming down, and begs you, Sir, to wait and have a word or two with her. TARTUFF: gladly.

That came from Tartuffe,or The Impostor by Jean Baptiste Poquelin Moliere. i have The Norton Anthology Of World Masterpieces on my bed, because i was sick in bed the whole day, and desperate for something to read.

Seven Facts About Me

Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people (if possible) at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

1. I'm a lefty.

2. i don't like meat. it may be as a result of eating Neve food for a year. by the time i came home from Israel, i wasn't eating chicken, meat, or fish. i started eating chicken again, but i just can't stomach meat.

3. i got stitches three times. once when i was four, on my chin (i ran into a lamppost) when i was eleven, again on my chin (i was "skating" on ice in my backyard and i fell) and when i was 13 on my lip (i ran into a tree) i was kind of clumsy when i was younger. for full embarrassing details on these stories, see sister1

4. I'm an over-obsessive shower freak. i can't get into bed at night without showering. even if i come home at 2 am. the second Shabbos is over I'm in the shower. i just like feeling very clean

5. i can raise one eyebrow. this is a feat that i taught myself how to do in sixth grade. i used to practice for hours in front of the mirror, until i was able to isolate the muscle of my left eyebrow. and then my right.

6. i love double numbers. i don't know when i realized it, but i just find them more fun than other double digits. my favorite one is 33. it's partially due to the fact that when i was in eleventh or twelfth grade, my favorite Yankee pitcher was Javier Vazquez, and his jersey number was 33. until he got traded after the embarrassing loss of 22-0 to the Indians.

7. i listen to music at night to fall asleep. sometimes in the morning i wake up tangled in my headphones, and sister1 says I'm going to strangle myself, but i have a hard time falling asleep without it.

i can't tag anyone because they've all done it already

I also fall asleep with my headphones in. I can raise one eyebrow too. When I was younger I got a nice black eye. I still have a bump in its place, right above my eye, making my left eye heavier than my right and me being able to lift my right able.

I used to have music 24/7 nights and days and would be dying if it was off. Now I often leave music on, but if I sleep at home I don't have problem to fall asleep without it.
I often sleep in the train on the way to work and back and only way fall asleep is to have music on.
Past couple of years I still spent most of the day with music on - either headphones or normal speakers.

You should be lucky to walk into different things many times, ending up with stitches!

Yay, I'm so glad you did it!

I got stitches 2 times, surprisingly right next to each other on my forehead. the first was from opening the screen door, the corner of the bottom of the door cut me, and the second was from running home in the wind with a heavy knapsack, I fell onto the sidewalk. You just reminded me of a funny story, when I was in first grade I got stitches and my pre1A teacher and her father did it for me, and I remember she tried to keep me distracted by asking me math examples.

Your just like FrumSkeptic with the showers.

That's so cool your able to raise one eye brow, I always wanted to do that. I'm able to blink one eye at a time for a long time, and I remember being proud of that.

That's funny about the double numbers.

What about putting the music on very low so that you don't have to worry about strangling yourself with the headphones. I still have to check up about listening to music before you go to sleep, I thought it says your not allowed to.
