007

I'm Love. Charlottalove. And I've been tagged by my chocoholic friend Beth at BooksEtc to share 7 random facts about me. Here they are, in no particular order.

001. My biggest fear is getting in a horrible accident. I have no idea why. I don't enjoy driving in larger cities as cars whizz and zip by. I do speed but not excessively. It seems to me though, that other drivers think they have a License To Kill or something. Scares me tremendously.

002. I was a senior in high school visiting my boyfriend after school. His little brother had borrowed a pencil from me. As I got in my car to leave, my beau's brother threw the pencil into the open car window...right into my eye. I immediately started crying. It wasn't so much a GoldenEye but definitely red!

003. The World Is Not Enough! I once wanted to travel to outer space. I wonder how long an intergalactic passport would take to process...

004. I love to bike. Despite flipping off my bike too many times to mention, I love the thrill of wind in my face. I have no idea why my injuries haven't discouraged me altogether. Seems I was just meant to Die Another Day.

005. I went to South Carolina last weekend to purchase fireworks for the New Year. While I was there I happened to step into a store where I happened to glance at some jewelry and happened to find a few pieces I couldn't live without. I'm a sucker for shiny silver. I'm not much of a Goldfinger...unless it's white gold.

006. I was carded on my 21st birthday in Nevada. I was on a road trip to California and since it was my birthday, my buddies decided we would make a quick stop to drop a few dollars. We found some hole-in-the-wall-wanna-be Casino Royale and I plunked a few coins. Before I had time to lose all my money, a security guard approached and asked for my ID. There were several of us on the road trip and my purse was in another vehicle - the one car we were waiting on. Since I couldn't prove my age, I was asked to leave.

007. I start back to school on Tuesday. I'm terrified but I know it's the first step to a fulfilling career. During a particular stressful day during undergrad, I exclaimed, "Once I get my bachelor's, I'm never going back to school!" Well, I've learned I'll Never Say Never Again.

Here's where I would take 7 others. If you want to participate, post a link to your blog in my comments.

Shh...this post is For Your Eyes Only...

What's with the picture of the burrito? That doesn't even cut it. You owe me one.
. . . like you're the one who ate my burrito or something.

I love that you used Bond movies titles in your 7. Very inventive. I would do it, but I just did a seven in November. Not there aren't 7 more random things about me, I just need to space them out a little more, you know, leave some mystery. Yours were cool though :)

Beth said...

Glad you did the meme - these kind always reveal just a little more about someone...
The 007 theme was brilliant!

I'm with you on the driving but it's the highway drivers that scare me!

Randy said...

I didn't know you were a Bond girl? :) At least, I hope you weren't poking fun at my favorite movie character of all time. Haha.

Coordination Queen said...

I do recall the carding... that was a fun trip.

Joel B. said...

Funny stuff. Glad you did it. After all, you only live twice....

Craig D said...

What an odd job you did. I was shaken, not stirred by this post.

Aw, who am I kidding? Nobody does it better!

Melissa said...

It can be sortof depressing when you realize that you do indeed need/want to go back to school. Great Job!

bec said...

where are you going to school? I haven't read anything about a move to Utah yet, so I am disappointed whatever school it is.

DJ & Candra Probert said...

I'm speechless. You are just too dang clever. Those are some pretty sweet random facts.

RED MOJO said...

You have won a 'You Make My Day' award. Come on over and pick it up please, I can't hold it for you forever!

Dorky Dad said...

Dang. You go to South Carolina more than I did when I LIVED there ...

Jocelyn said...

I sort of think your 002 caused your 001. Fear is never completely unfounded!

Good luck at school. Don't be nervous; keep in mind that your profs are very nervous themselves that first day (or twelve). Trust me. I'm one of them.

Well, not YOUR prof, but the nervous person up front.

004. I'm with you there. I got up to 40+ mph several times on my bicycle last summer. It was awesome. Sadly, I couldn't enjoy it completely because I was terrified a car would materialize out of nowhere and knock me into the neighboring county. I guess that's one reason to look forward to the end of fossil fuels.

1. I tried twice to get a PhD, but fell short each time. Me, a Dr? No.
2. We have a painted wooden horse my Mum bought at Moscow airport, From Russia With Love.
3. As a child, I was terrified of cockroaches. I wasn't too thrilled when I saw a lizard pounce on one for dinner. It was A View To A Kill I could have done without.
4. After a major bicycle spill as a child, I had The Living Daylights knocked out of me.
5. I am generally optimistic by nature. No matter how bad today may be, Tomorrow Never Dies.
6. I draw groans with some of my wordplay. I am less Scaramanga than The Man With The Golden Pun.
7. I derive more than just A Quantum Of Solace from my beliefs.

PS: I tried not to use the titles you used, so there are a couple of tenuous ones in my list.

PPS: This may be the best of all. Nobody does it better.

PPPS: Are you a Bond girl? If so, which one?
