Meme: Weird & Random

Kevin over at Seriously Good just tagged me for the “10 Weird and Random Facts About Myself” meme. Here are mine:

1. When I was 12, I started a newsletter called “Kitty on the Front Page.”

2. I think it’s disgusting when people put lemon slices in their water.

3. I like to stay up really, really late watching bad TV.

4. I’m a native Seattleite and I don’t drink coffee.

5. I like haggis. A lot.

6. I’m terrified of flying.

7. I microwave things in plastic containers.

8. I would never date a vegetarian.

9. I love Mexi-Fries.

10. I live in Seattle and I hate the fucking rain.

    That’s a lovely list! But wait, I’m a Seattleite and freakin’ love the rain … maybe we’re destined not to meet … (but I hear you on not dating vegetarians … you go girl.)

  2. Kevin says:


    “5. I like haggis. A lot.”

    You, my friend, are twisted.—I like that in a woman.

  3. HA! We haven’t had any rain for 3 months now. It gets a tad warm here in the summer, but I’d still rather be here in August than back East.

    This, of course, doesn’t do you any good if you can’t beat #6, though.

    Hi Katy,
    I’m glad you like the rain—although I suspect you love the rain BECAUSE YOU’RE A GARDENER. After being forced to prune my mom’s aphid-infested rose bushes at a young age, I will never garden again. Never, I tell you. Oh, well, unless it’s an herb garden. I might make an exception for that.

    I hope you can make it by the blog warming party on Thursday… it would be great to meet you!

  5. megwoo says:

    Hee hee. Thanks Kevin…

    But doesn’t everyone like haggis?

  6. megwoo says:

    PC – I’m so jealous! No rain for three months?! I’d be happy with no rain for three days at this point…

  7. Kevin says:


    “But doesn’t everyone like haggis?”

    No. In fact most Scots don’t like haggis. At the Galinburg highland Games they make a haggis for the founders’ dinner on Friday. One haggis. 40 people. I don’t know what they do with the leftovers.

  8. GastroChick says:

    I once made the ill-advised decision to date a vegeterian and it was a complete bore. Vegeterians are also bad in bed

  9. megwoo says:

    Ha ha! That’s funny Kevin. And probably true…

  10. megwoo says:

    I try and refrain from saying OMG!, but in this case I really have to. OMG! I CAN’T believe you said that. Too funny.

  11. Keiko says:

    Hi Megwoo – my father in law is Scottish and he loves haggis :)
    I hate flying and stay up really late watching bad TV too, hmm…

  12. elmomonster says:

    How funny! Haggis, once its cooked didn’t look that bad to me. What Tony Bourdain had in Scotland that is…i’m not sure i’m brave enough to cook it myself here.

    Loved your other quirks!

  13. megwoo says:

    Hi Keiko, I bet your father-in-law has some great access to haggis!

  14. megwoo says:

    Someone else cooked the haggis that I tried, but it didn’t sound too hard… they look like giant stuffed sausages and only need gentle heating before serving.

  15. joey says:

    Haha! I would never date a vegetarian either :) He wouldn’t survive meeting my brother (who moos when he cuts his steak…PC is so not in his vocab)! Hold on…you can’t put plastic in the microwave????

  16. megwoo says:

    Joey, that’s so funny—I think I need to meet your brother.

    I’m not sure about over there, but people in Seattle FREAK if you put anything plastic in the microwave. I think it was just an urban myth that spiraled out of control, but I can’t really tell for sure. Either way, there are so many other things that will kill me (bacon consumption, smoking) waaaay before melted plastic will, so I microwave plastic with abandon.

    P.S. Your chocolate truffle cupcakes look incredible!

  17. I miss the rain. It hasn’t rained in Arizona for 125 days. Grass is always greener?! As for the plastic, I think its okay to microwave as long as it can hold up to the elements.

  18. megwoo says:

    Ha ha! I like to think of it more as “everything in moderation”… too much sun or rain without a break can be trying.
