8 things

My friend Raquel (she of the excellent cultural reviews, etc.) tagged me for this. I think I've done it before and couldn't come up with 8 things, but maybe I'll do better this time.

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

So eight things about me...

I like to paint my toenails different colors on a regular basis during the summer.

I have six colors right now. I wanted to do a rainbow for Pride, but I didn't have green or yellow (or enough toes, actually).

I can play the string bass decently.

My string pedagogy teacher last year told me that if I ever practiced I could be really good. We had a very honest relationship; I told him I didn't have time, and he told me it was okay but I could have been much better.

I spent two summers teaching english in Poland and travelling around eastern Europe and one summer driving from Tucson to Alaska.

All of which were, at times, better in concept than in practice.

While in Poland, I got wasted with some of my students.

And had to face down a counsellor and deny it while still drunk. Ugh.

I've lived in four houses in the past less-than-three years.

And I'm moving again in October. Damn it.

I spent a summer wearing navy blue cordury knickers.

Rented navy blue corduroy knickers. The joys of Interlochen. And no, Aaron, I didn't like it.

I'm named after a ghost movie.

Before I was born, I was supposed to be Amy. But then some friends of my parents had a baby and named her Amy, so I somehow got Amanda and was nicknamed Ammie after a ghost movie my parents had seen called Ammie, Come Home. I haven't seen it, but I read the book and it was not so hot.

When I get drunk, sometimes I kiss boys.

I'm not proud of it, but there it is.

So... Eight people? I'm not sure I have that many. Here's what I've got:

Linguist Lauren (maybe post it in both accounts? Does that count as two?)
Poet Lauren
Louise (on myspace, I guess)
Ummmm... I think that's all I've got.
