I just picked up the latest issue of Modern Bride, and loved so many of the little personal details they included in their “100 Things We Love” section. These are just SOME of my favorites….

Ahh, these are always so much fun, and a great procrastination tool.

Players list 8 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, players then tags 8 people by posting their names and makes sure they know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at the tagee’s blog.

Make sense?:

1. I like eating unpopped corn kernels….not raw or anything…but the ones that just never popped when you’ve made popcorn.

2. When I was interning at Paper Magazine, I followed Vera Wang into the bathroom just to say how much I loved her wedding dresses. She liked my shirt from the Gap, and thats probably the only reason I’ve kept it.

3. I collect books on small lofts because one day I believe Chad and I will be able to afford to fix one up.

4. I also collect those free postcards you find in restaurant bathrooms. I have 2 full boxes of them and yet have never sent a single one.

5. I have the smallest hands I know.

6. When it comes to candy, green is my favorite flavor…unless green means its watermelon or sour apple. I hate those.

7. I talk in my sleep. Allegedly, I will lean up on my elbows in bed and have an actual conversation with my pillow. I even pause to hear my pillows response.

8. Whenever I see a street fair, I HAVE to have a grilled corn on the cob. Its a compulsion.

Tag, you’re it!
