The 7 random things meme

I've been tagged by Bethany at Spotted Devil Cat and his Vegan Assistant.

  1. Link the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
  3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links.
  4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
1. I've had a lot of short-term odd jobs. One of the oddest was summarizing an Arabic religious show into English for the English-speaking editors.

2. I go through phases of deep interest in different activities. Right now it's cooking, but there's also been art, writing, comics, embroidery, crochet, and knitting.

3. I have trouble throwing things away, especially old receipts, clothes tags, and bus passes.

4. The best dessert I've ever made were some chocolate peanut butter shells that I found at Yeah, That Vegan Shit. Despite that, I've only made them once because they were a little labor-intensive. I should remedy that situation one day.

5. I'm not sure why my blog is called nineteen ninety nine. I wanted something random and I think I got it, but I would do it differently if I made a new one today. Also the old URL used to contain a misspelling.

6. My favorite thing in my flat is our small square wooden dining table that we got from a vintage furniture store.

7. I don't drink coffee because caffeine's powers seem to multiply by 10 for me, but I love coffee flavored things like cake and candy.

Yasmin, I've had the recipe for chocolate peanut butter shells on my list for ages now! I'm glad to hear you liked them.

I've always wondered what it would be like to have had more odd jobs. It seems like it would be both interesting and aggravating to work with lots of very different people.

Oof, I've been tagged! I'm working on my list right now. I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to refrain from tagging other I'm not even sure I have seven cyber-friends whom I can tag!

yasmin, thanks for posting on this. I enjoyed learning more about you. I was completely wondering why your blog was 1999. Now I know.

We have a lot in common :)

*I love comics (uncle scrooge, donald duck, groo)
*caffeine is way too powerful for me (though I let it burn me with it's headachey energy now and then)
* I have a few tofurkey boxes of receipts that I need to shred from years ago. Not really sure what I was thinking w/ that. I know when I'm done de-cluttering for the day when I think some unusable small part that does nothing is worth keeping. Funny thing is that that item has probably escaped the trash can a number of times. face it, we've got the packrat gene.

Hi Yasmin,

Thank you for tagging me. I have trouble throwing away old receipts too.

Occasional art, comics, food, and other things of less interest to the general public.
