weird facts about me, #15-21

How can I resist someone who calls herself Tootsie Farklepants (even in Glamour magazine comments) when she asks me to reveal my weirdness? Even after I've already scared up some peculiarities for List #1 & List #2, there is always something more to be said.

RULES: List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs [this will not happen here; play if you want - post your link in comments].
  1. When playing "school" as a kid, I would make rosters of actual first & last names for my imaginary students (always 28, my favorite number) and call roll.

  2. I get inordinately excited about playing Scattergories.

  3. If I didn't have other obligations (and the mothers of waiting children weren't glaring at me), I could sit & swing at a park for hours.

  4. I dislike Jethro Tull with all of my heart.

  5. After seeing The Exorcist when I was 10, I felt pretty sure Satan was going to possess me if ever I wanted to skip Sunday School.

  6. I watched The Exorcist when I was 10 and am considered a rather well-adjusted individual.

  7. While working at a drug store in college, I met Drew Bledsoe and wrote out his check for him because his hand was injured (the weirdest part here: I still tell this story 17 years later as though it has some kind of special meaning).

We had a connection...
