So I figured I'll do what Babysitter did by combining two meme's into one.

Book Meme

Here are the rules: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same.

You hadn't had much food, because you saved money to finish your drawing, but still you had to cook something and you hadn't paid for it....All right, that's nothing, you can laugh at that. But finally you'll get into a man's office with your drawing, and you'll curse yourself for taking so much space of his air with your body, and you'll try to squeeze yourself out of his site, so that he won't see you, so that he won't hear your voice begging him, pleading, your voice licking his knees; you'll loathe yourself for it, but you won't care, if only he'd let you put up that building, you won't care, you'll want to rip your insides open to show him, because if he saw what's there, he'd have to let you put it up.

This came from "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand. I cannot explain what the qoute is about, because I haven't read the book yet. My mom is almost finished with it. When she is done, only then will I actually begin to read it. Though I can imagine it has something to do with capitalism. lol. And the guy being an architect.

Sevent Facts About Me, Meme
I was tagged by both The Babysitter and Material Maidel for this one.

Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people (if possible) at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

[1] I cannot go to bed without taking a shower first. Meaning, I must have wet hair when I go to sleep. If I have a high fever, I still shower. If for whatever reason I fall asleep without a shower (and this rarely ever happens, like once in 5 years). I change my bed sheets, or else I wouldn't be able to fall asleep the next night. Shabbos is an exception. But if I spend shabbos at home (and I usually do), I usually have my hair in a bun so that it doesn't dry by bed time.

[2] I am obsessed with the game Sims. I just love that game. I mastered it already. I have so much fun playing Gd. I can play hours on end.

[3] When I was a toddler I refused to eat anything that was red. This includes strawberries, cherries, tomatoes, watermelon, even red candy. Maybe it was the fear of communism my parents instilled in me, as they were refugees from the USSR. My mom thinks the reason I got over it, was because I was once at a party, and all the little kids were eating pizza, and I must of realized it wasn't that bad. The only exclusively red thing I don't like now are tomatoes.

[4] I have low cholestoral and low blood pressure. If I get worked up, its a good thing. Stupid people are actually good for my health, just bad for my IQ development. :). About a month ago, a doctor actually encouraged me to eat MORE red meat. :)

[5] My favorite holiday is pesach. All the cleaning may be a complete pain in the tush, but once the holiday begins, and the house is clean, and one can relax, the feeling of relief is just priceless.

[6] I think being "cultured" is a waste of time. Why is wasting time learning about artists important? Or what about music? I'm greatful that Gd created such talented people, but to value those who "study" this stuff, but have no talent themselves, is just a crock...atleast in my opinion.

[7] I hate writing facts about myself. I'm a pretty upfront person. It's not like the stuff I wrote about were a secret I woulda never written a blog post about in the future had I needed a topic!


And I'm not tagging anyone, because when I went around to see who was tagged, pretty much everyone was. So ...enjoy!

I started reading The Fountainhead a couple of years ago and was never able to finish it (had to return it to the library... guess I'm a slow reader, lol.), but of what I had read it was pretty awesome. I intend to finish it... one day.

As for number 5 -- Pesach is my favorite too... but I actually like the cleaning before hand!

frumskeptic said...

lol. That shoulda been one of your facts... "I like cleaning for Pesach" :-)

btw...As soon as I have more time I will do the three meal meme. lol. :)

I keep on pushing it off.

Jessica said...

lol, no worries about the three meal meme. I tagged my husband for that meme and he didn't even do it!

Mikeinmidwood said...

I tagged you too.

Anonymous said...

Interesting facts! i like peysach too (well the first couple days...)

Ayn Rand, ofcourse lol! :)

I never read it either, closest I got to politics was "Lexus & Olive Tree" and "World on Fire."

1- I used to always take showers at night and put a towel on my pillow to go to sleep. But then at one point I decided I like morning showers better, and have been doing them ever since.

2- I remember you telling me about that in a comment somewhere, I meant to check it out and never got around to it. but I have seen a bunch of sims youtube videos, like for HSM and their really cool.

3- that's funny!

4- So you get to truly say "Gam zu letova" when you hear a stupid thing.

5- I like the season it's in. But not sure if it's my favorite.

6- I agree
