Tagged! 5 Weird Things/Habits

I was tagged by pastgirl, so here are my answers!

1.) I HATE CARROTS!!!
Even though I often eat vegetarian, and live a healthy lifestyle... I can't stand carrots. Only if they are chopped up into super tiny undetectable pieces can I eat them, like in a veggie burger.

2.) I HATE PEACOCKS!!!
They are so damn LOUD and they sound like someone screaming for help. I used to live with my Aunt and Uncle and they had FOUR peacocks (and some peahens for them to cock off to). I was going to college full time while also working full time, 2nd shift, in a Community Based Residential Facility for elderly adults with mental disabilities or Alzheimer's disease. It was so stressful. When I'd get home late, and want to sleep, but those damn Peacocks would start screaming at the crack of dawn. When ever I see peacock feathers I think, "I HATE PEACOCKS!!!"

3.) I MET MY HUSBAND AT A LIVE-ACTION ROLE PLAYING GAME OF VAMPIRE THE MASQUERADE!!!
You know the stereotypical nerd that plays D&D? Well about 1 out of 10 or so of those extra geeky nerds is a girl! Most gaming groups have the "token-chick gamer" and most groups feel that they need one gamer-girl in the group to bring balance to the force. Aaron and I were just friends for nearly 5 years before we started dating. After we started dating we were married 4 months later. It was funny because some people didn't realize that Aaron and I had a 5 year relationship beforehand. (I was Clan Tremere and he was Toreador)

4.) I LOVE "HAREM ANIME"
I love anime that is like one guy and one girl, but then there is a complication in their relationship, and that usually results in lots of other women co-habitating or getting involved. It leads to very funny situations and I just love it! :)

5.) I TAKE PUBLIC TRANSIT TO WORK!!!
I catch the West-Bound 18 around 6:45AM, then transfer to the 62. I ride until I reach the corner of Minneral Point and Gammon Road, then walk to my building from there. I get in around 7:15 most days. I work until 4 then do it all in reverse to get home around 4:45. :) The City of Madison is "revamping" the bus system starting the 27th this month. It may increase my walking, but could shorten my commute!

TDG is the "Talker" that I hang out at. It's very web-retro!

Come Check it out!

TDG stands for "The Dating Game." But after all these years it's just a place where us old nerds hang out. OH, and on Wednesday Nights, at 8 PM Central, we have a 50 Question Trivia Contest!!!

My user name is Vixen, and I'd love to chat ya up the old-school way!

If you really get into it, I'll hook you up with an even better way to connect ;)
