Will you greet yourself when the sun arrives

The Patz-man tagged me, so here I go...

The rules: Each player lists 8 random facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 4 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

  • I have a crazy memory for detail. Often, I am teased by my friends about my ability to pull out random facts or recount detailed happenings and direct quotes from the past. I can probably tell you what outfit I was wearing to every single event that I have ever attended. I'm not kidding.
  • I can put both of my legs behind my head.
  • As a kid, I was obsessed with repeats of the 60's television show The Monkees , I owned tapes of all their music and I wanted to marry Davy Jones.
  • I am a master at the game 21 and can out shoot all of the best basketballin' boys and girls I know...even when I'm wearing a dress and heels.
  • I am addicted to buying magazines; fashion, sports, music, tabloids, you name it. For years, I kept them all and housed a massive collection in my bedroom. It got to the point where my parents forced me to purge most of them, for fear that the floor of my room would cave in. I am currently in recovery for this addiction. The only magazines that I usually still buy monthly are Nylon and Vogue. And I read magazines from back to front, always.
  • I sing at the top of my lungs when I'm alone in my car; my favourites to sing along to? Matt Good and Alanis Morissette. I actually prefer to drive places alone because I love to sing in my car and won't do it if I have a passenger.
  • The Montreal Canadiens were my favourite hockey team growing up. I was head over heels in love with Patrick Roy. At age 10, I could be seen walking around fully decked out in Habs gear. I had it all, including boxer shorts (which I wore hanging down underneath my Umbros) plus an array of t-shirts, hoodies, hats and track pants. I even owned Habs socks and running shoes.
  • My undergarments, socks and toe nail polish always match my outfit.

Now, for the next victims...

#1 - I am the exact same way!!! And yes I remember the exact outfits that both Chad and I wear to every event...my mind is crazy like that and that was actually something I was going to write in my 8 things...

#7 - The Montreal Canadians were actually my most hated team growing up, HOWEVER I also had a massive crush on Patrick Roy and had a poster of him in my room...

Danielle, you're the first person I've ever met who remembers every outfit too! I love that! And I mean come on, Patrick Roy's a babe- how could we NOT crush on him?

How do your toenails always match? This I don't get. Do people really change their nail color every day? I used to love crazy turquoise toenails, colors like that, but as I grew up I started picking more neutral colors so that at the very least I wouldn't CLASH with my outfit. Although to me pink and red go with everything as far as toenails are concerned.

The only magazines I buy monthly are usually Jane and Nylon.

There was a time when I was actually meticulous enough to change my toenail polish everyday (weird, I know) but now I guess I use the term 'match' more loosely...I'm big on neutral colours when there's no 'fun' colour to match with too so that like you said, at least they never CLASH.
I also love Jane magazine.
