6 random things

I am accepting the tag from Granny Annie, who does not in the least look like any of her chickens! (If you want to find out what that means, visit her blog.)

So here's a random meme - six things random things about me - well, six is one of my lucky numbers, sooooooooooo...

1. I am the only person in my family with my last name. In college, I just decided to change it. I changed my middle name, too, but to another name with the same initial (L.)

2. I tend to wear dark clothes not because I am goth, but because I am a messy eater. White sweater = pasta sauce all over the place.


3. I am an introvert. Big time. No one who first meets me believes this, because I have gotten used to faking it. I am in a position where my name and contact information are all over a web site and promotional materials for work, so I have HAD TO get used to it.

4. I take things personally. I'm trying to learn not to...

5. I hate carrots. I have always hated carrots. Little orange fuckers, you are a waste of space in Thai food and otherwise yummy things. I'm not a rabbit, so why should I eat you?
6. I have an ex that took his own life. It was many years after we stopped seeing each other, but I am still puzzled as to why. He seemed like quite a happy person when I knew him.

Nobody believes me when I say that I'm a bit on the shy side. I suppose that's because I can be loud, cuss like a sailor and will say exactly what everyone else is thinking but afraid to say themselves. For some odd reason I don't have a problem talking to a group of people. However, if it's one-on-one, I'm in my own personal hell. If the other person is shy, that makes my shyness even worse. Go figure.

btw, life's been freakishly hectic and draining so I haven't been on much lately.

That's funny about wearing black. I always seem to have white on when I eat tomato sauce!
I also understand the introvert thing, but people thinking otherwise. I get that a lot.
I'm very sorry to hear about your ex..who knows what happens to people over the years?

Claire said...

You and carrots. Me and peas. We all need a nemesis, right?

I thought your name was Riot Kitty. "Kitty" doesn't start with "L"!

Riot Kitty said...

PM: It sounds the same as my dilemma...one-on-one I am ONLY good with strangers if it's work related. Group talks are no problem...

JLee: Thanks :) And I'm with you on white and tomato sauce!

C: Exactly! It's like the part in Family Guy where Stewie has it out with broccoli...

I wish I had never changed my maiden name. After my divorce from my children's father, I thought it was good we all had the same last name, but now my second marriage has give me another last name and I had to change ID,etc. Going back in time I never would have changed my name.

About messy clothes, I eqate myself to Pigpin in the Peanuts cartoon. I could walk down a hospital corridor and come out the other end covered in ink, dirt, pasta sauce,etc.

I would call myself an introvert but no one would believe it. It's a little difficult to believe about you too,but I tend to believe what you say.

Carrots are only good for adding color to food.

I have an ex who took his life and even though it was years after we had parted,many blamed me. I'll never understand that.

We have more in common that I knew.

Riot Kitty said...

Fb: Ooh, you caught me ;)

Annie: Wow! No kidding! I can tell you, having been that depressed myself, NO ONE can do anything to talk you out of it. It is shameful for anyone to blame a suicide on someone else.

My uncle also took his own life last year after years of chronic depression. My aunt loved him to bits, and still does - it's a horrible, chemical thing.

Well, well, let's now focus on hating vegetables, shall we?

One day vegetables will rule the world as your evil overlords. Carrots are the minions who shall wield the slave whips. I am doing my part to hasten this day by never consuming any lest I slow their inexorable advance towards complete world domination.

LL Cool Joe said...

Good list!

Yep, I'll pass on the carrots too.

I'm an extrovert, always have been. I'm not sure on introverted dj would work that well.

I used to wear black all the time because I was about 20lbs heavier, but I also have a habit of chucking food down myself as well.

I wish I had just changed my name randomly in college as well and just kept that name (I agree with Granny Annie on this one, the marriages, ugh). I could have just changed it to the coolest last name ever and spared myself the search for men with cool last names, much easier and cheaper. I feel eerily like we have much in common, well, everything but 5 & 6 (but my post today is related to #6, had I read your post first I'd have chosen something else...).

The WV is suctiol but I think it's misspelled and should actually be sucitol...

Shionge said...

Yo RK!!! Thanks for sharing this random things about you, so cool!

Scarlet said...

Wow, no kidding...you're an introvert. Of course, I wouldn't have guessed but it's funny, I get along better with the quiet ones.

I don't like carrots much either...or many other vegetables like broccoli and brussel sprouts. Like you, "I'm not a rabbit."

I also tend to wear black a lot, especially shirts/blouses. They match everything and look good with all kinds of accessories.

I was sad to hear about your ex. I had an ex die on me, too (stabbed to death at a Kool and the Gang concert back in the early 80s). I still can't hear the song "Celebration" without thinking of him.

pheromone girl said...

Yes, you are an introvert. Like me, we have a tendency to glom on to each other!!!

I'm sorry, but I love ccarrots. Does that make me a bunny? I'm allergic to them - so am I allergic to myself?

I get to choose a new last name. I'm still really liking "Menace" (pronounced men-ah-chay) and will proudly go by "Pheromone Girl Menace" forever more. Or until I get bored and throw another 500 bucks at the county...

And I love each and every cool thing about you!!
