So, I was tagged for this meme by Betsy.

Here are the rules:
1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules. (if you don't have a blog, email me)
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here is the randomness:
1. I have to eat evenly. For example, if I'm eating M&Ms, I will put 2 in my mouth and chew on one side, swallow, put in 2 more, but chew on the other side. If there happens to be an odd number in the package, I will bite the odd-ball in half and chew half on each side. For foods not as easy to divide, I just use my good guess-timation skills to divide each bite in half to chew an even amount on each side.
2. I like watching college football...pros, not so much, even the Cowboys (sorry, B). But, I love waking up on Saturdays in the fall to turn on ESPN for GameDay and keeping the tv on a college game the rest of the day. Especially if the Aggies are playing and the game's being aired, but even if a game is on just as back ground noise. Before you start thinking I am every man's dream wife, this does not hold true for every sport. I would rather eat my shoes than watch one second (which seems to last one hour) of baseball. If it was an aired Aggie game?...I'd watch it, but I'd have to have lots and lots of yummy snacks to distract me from my boredom.
3. Now that you believe I'm un-American with my disdain for baseball, I'll further your proof. I don't like apple pie. I like apples and love pie, but not together.
4. I also don't like lasagna, meatloaf, or cooked spinach.
5. When I was growing up I was painfully shy. Seriously, my parents thought something was wrong with me. I still consider myself a shy person.
6. I'm a contradiction...I was a cheerleader in middle school and high school. I remember my dad asking me how I could get up in front of the entire school and cheer, but get nervous about having to speak up in a class. I still have no answers on that one.
7. There was a time in my life when I only wanted to have sons. I later changed that to one daughter, but no more. God knew better than me...as always. I wouldn't change having two daughters if I could. It suits me perfectly.
8. My idea of fun is laying under the sun with a good book and a cold bottle of water. Bryan discovered this the first day of our honeymoon in Jamaica. Needless to say, we don't always have the same idea of fun. In my defense, I must tell you that I do enjoy adventure...rollercoasters, hiking, skiing, etc., and I would've eventually wanted to snorkel, kayak, pedal the huge floating tricycle thing, and participate in the Newlywed Olympics, but not all in the first hour we arrived.

I don't think I know enough people who blog regularly to tag. So, if you're reading this consider yourself tagged. And, leave me a comment if you do it, so I can check out your randomness.

* Well, I asked Bryan to come up with one and after I finished all 8, he reminded me that I don't like chick-flicks. I wouldn't say that's a hard and fast rule, but for the most part, I would rather watch Fight Club than say Bridget Jones's Diary.
