Tag! You’re it!

Social networking sites have lots of fun and quirky games to play that don’t involve the enumerable applications on the site. From time to time people will tag you in a note asking you to participate in a quiz or answer questions to get to know you better. Occasionally you will get personal messages (PMs) asking you to play “status games” where you put certain things in your status update for one reason or another.

Usually, these games annoy me. I can’t stand the ones that tell me if I don’t copy and paste a certain status I am a bad person. I’m annoyed at the ones thinking they’re going to further a cause by posting an enigmatic status update instead of just saying what they want to say. And the tag games just get old after a bit. Plus, my facebook notes are streamed from this blog, so if I participate in the tag games it adds things to my notes that aren’t part of the blog, which I don’t prefer.

I decided to go ahead and play the following game, though, because it’s one I haven’t seen before. Instead of answering a predetermined set of questions, it asks the following:

“Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 30 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end choose 30 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you, if I tagged you it is because I want to know more about you…”

So here are my thirty random facts. Enjoy (or not) and feel free to participate by posting your own thirty random facts, whether or not you’ve been officially tagged, but do not feel pressured to do so; I won’t agonize over it for decades on end feeling slighted and ignored just because you chose not to participate in a silly tag game on a social networking site.

  1. Only been drunk twice in your life?! Well, I can’t say that you’re missing much. Most people don’t know how to handle the drunkenness and end up being annoying, but an alcohol buzz, when properly managed, is an interesting thing. Very good for relaxation.Just…don’t puke. That’s never fun…

  2. @ Anonymous Saturday, November 27, 2010 1:35:00 PM:I’m guessing English is not your first language, possibly not your second or third or fifth either…I do not have tips on fashion, coupons, whatever Vimax is, or anything else. I’m really a tip-giver, honestly. I rant and rave; I chat; I debate.

  3. @ Raijen:I have drank alcohol more than twice, but only twice did I drink to the excess (which included puking and blacking out and passing out). The first time I woke up naked and soaked on an air mattress at my sister’s house with the door to the room wide open. I was terrified that something horrible had happened but it turned out that I’d just yelled a lot and puked all over her house so she’d forced me to shower and tossed me onto the mattress, forgetting to shut the door, and I’d apparently pissed myself. The second time I got drunk is actually an entry on this blog. It was 2006 and it turned out horribly; a guy tried to rape me while I was passed out, the next morning I found out that I was one month pregnant and I hated myself for drinking. I miscarried that baby and even though the docs told me the drinking binge wasn’t the likeliest reason for the miscarriage, I feel guilty for it to this day, so I only socially drink if I know for a fact I’m not pregnant, such as when it’s that time of the month.
