Six Random Things

I was kinda soft-tagged for the 6 random things meme by Leslie of Leslie's Blog (which I follow via RSS) by virtue of her modification of the rules:
"I am not going to tag anyone to do this meme, but encourage anyone who would like, to do it as an exercise in self silly examination."
The rules as posted by the poster who tagged her were:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people.
5. Inform the tagees and the person who tagged you.

Ok, so one and two are covered above. Here are my six:

  1. I have an irrational fear that people will find out I'm not as much of a geek as I think I am.
  2. The first book not written for kids I ever read was Year of the Unicorn by Andre Norton.
  3. When I wear a wrist watch, the watch I usually wear is my grandfather's old self-winding watch that I was fascinated by as a child.
  4. My #1 favorite weather phenomenon is hoarfrost, which I'd never seen before I moved to Minnesota.
  5. I think the sexiest things about a man are his voice and his eyes.
  6. I put cayenne pepper and organic ginger ale in my home made cranberry sauce.
Rule 4 is going to fall by the wayside, since I'm always the weak link in any "forward this" chain. If you're inclined to be tagged, consider yourself tagged. Otherwise, you're not it.

This is so cool.
President Obama's Inauguration Speech spoke of "... our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness", and I flashed on an image of a crazy quilt.
And there ya go :)
And I did not know that anyong RSS fed me. Also cool.
Now for the big question... can you swallow jello?

No problem with jello. Closest I've come to not being able to swallow something that is designed to be consumed is contrast liquid before a CT scan. I can get the stuff down, but it wants to come right back up immediately. My stomach just seems to know it's not food and tries to reject it outright.
