A Little Light Noise

My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality.
Oscar Wilde

On a lighter note...........25 random things. It's all over facebook and the blogs. I have been tagged on facebook too many times. I have refused to play. If I need to sit down and write 25 things about myself, I would be bored with me very quickly. Do you really care that I don't like mayonnaise on sandwiches? I don't care all that much, unless I have to eat it.

Now this thing has made the national news and the newspapers. Really. 

I don't eat mushrooms. I don't like buttered bread or anything made with creamed soup. I don't like potluck dinners because all bread is invariably buttered and most things are made with creamed soup.

Without prompting, I reveal more about myself and my life than most people care to know. But I bristle at the prompting. I've done 7 random things, but 25 is too much. So, I'll reveal my unruly youth, my political ranting, my horse addiction and my hatred of housework as the spirit moves me. But I will not reveal 25 random things about me on command. I'd rather do 1000 over my own time. I have many more food issues.


  1. AMEN! I agree - I hate the 25 things posts. Even though I know that I am guilty of filling it out and sending it to you!

    That is what happens when a person has too much time!

    Otherwise, I never do questionaires, they take too long and get too personal!

  2. I know you don't like Ketchup because you filled it in!

  3. i'll admit i succumbed to this on facebook...but only because it was the first time a meme had come to me there. :-) i say good for you and wish i'd had your resolve on this one. :-)

  4. No cream soups!?
    Not good for me, but I love them.
    Roux grosses me out when I think about it, but I eat it in recipes.

    How about bearnaise then?


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
