Tag Your It!

Nanette tagged me for a meme.

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write their own blog with their 7 things as well as these rules. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. Remember to leave a comment for them letting them know they have been tagged and to read your blog.

My 7s.

1. One of my funniest lunches I've ever had with Gus was when we first became friends in college. We went to go grab some food at Gracies (the freshman cafe). When we got to our table, I bust out a mini bottle of Oil and a mini bottle of Balsamic Vinegar that i brought in my bookbag. Gus just looked at me like I was from Mars. "What the hell is that?" he asked before cracking up. "Oh my mom packed these for me because she knows how much I love to use them for salad dressing". And then I realized how crazy I must have looked. He still mentions that story 7 years later.

2. I hate the word doppler. In Rochester I used to press mute whenever the meteorologist was doing his forecast because his first line would be "Let's check out our live triple doppler rating". I cringe whenever I hear it. I do not know how this happened.

3. I have a mild case of OCD when it comes to locking doors. I'll turn right back around if I don't think the door is locked. I even have to shake the knob a few times to make sure its locked. This applies to Irons and Flat Hair Irons as well, but not as serious.

4. My eyes water whenever I laugh or yawn. And this laugh doesn't even have to be over something that's really funny. They just water. It looks like I'm crying. I'm very self conscious about this! Especially around people who don't know about this condition.

5. This one is pretty bad. I can remember every detail about where I was when I found out: a) Brad & Jennifer split up b) Nick & Jessica split up. When Braniston split- I was at a UC party at RIT. Who goes on the Internet and checks people.com at a college party? This girl. With Nick & Jessica, it was on November 24th 2005. I told Gus' mom that I couldn't eat Thanksgiving dinner, because I was mourning the Newlyweds. I got over it 2 minutes later.

6. I'm starting an invitation & note card company called Dolce Nota (that's Sweet Note in Italian). Still working on the website, which pretty much means I have a "Coming Soon" page. But now after reading that NYTimes article, Dolce Nota just might have to turn into a Note card/cupcake/coffee shop. Stay tuned!

7. I can't sign my new last name. Every time I go to write it things start out good, and then I just completely scribble the last 4 letters. Try for yourself, write (in cursive) Mancini. The n-c-i-n-i is like an obstacle course for my penmanship.

I only know a couple bloggers, so i tagged them and a few others that i like to read:
Matt Q, Jenifer, Tracee, Noreen (who's starting her blog tomorrow! yay!), Shannon, Golightly & Saltzberg

I took your challenge! It's not very verbose but I just got off of a plane. Enjoy. :)

I remember giving you the oil and vinegar. Silly thing to remember. I packed you guys up for college like it was the last time I would see you!! I also got to cart everything there and everything back home. IT was fun
