Baby, all my facts are random.

Crap. Tagged. Thanks a bunch, Lyman. I guess this is what you get when you out someone for eating babies.

Okay, first things first, the rules:

1. Link to the baby-eatin' mofo who tagged you. See above.

2. Post these rules on your blog. Curse afore-mentioned baby eater for stealing Fight Club joke. Done and done.

3. Come up with six random facts about yourself. (Now's the part where I lament the fact that my bio in the sidebar is comprised entirely of random facts, all of which now seem totally off the table.)

All right. Six random facts. Here goes:

I was vegetarian for several years, despite the fact that I think bacon should be a food group.

I have never played a game of Monopoly in my life. There's a certain Sarah who'd dispute that fact, but she'd be wrong.

I got my ears first pierced when I was sixteen. My mom had to sign for me. Sadly, it was at Claire's. (No, I didn't hug the fucking teddy bear. And yes, I said "first pierced"; there were three more piercings to follow.)

My freshman year in college, I was banned from the grounds of my old high school for my part in a propaganda campaign aimed at ousting a couple of seriously crappy school-board members who were trying to gut the school's programs in order to lower taxes. Most of the folks who bought our shirts and stuff were teachers. I think the principal bought one after he'd escorted us from the grounds.

When I was a kid, I had no idea why the hell people said, "Not if I see you first!" in reply to "See you later!" I couldn't for the life of me understand how them seeing me precluded me seeing them, which leads me inexorably to the question, "Are you stupid if you don't get a joke that is, itself, stupid?" Sadly, the answer may be yes.

And finally, the entity known to the world as Chris F. Holm is, in reality, an intergalactic vessel made entirely out of awesome, and piloted by a tiny alien homunculus.

Okay, on to rule 4: the tagging. The thing is, pretty much everybody I know has completed this meme at one time or another, making me the chump at the bottom of the Amway pyramid who doesn't make any damn money. I guess I'm saying I got nothing. But if any of you folks wanna step up to the plate, go right ahead. Just be sure to give me credit, so I don't get struck by lightning or anything, okay?
