Crazy 8 Meme

Every once in a while a blog virus spreads. Consider me the vaccination, baby. I'll post my Crazy 8 alright, but I will not spread this infectious disease to any more innocent and unsuspecting bloggers. May those of you who have already been infected (like you, you, and you) find peace in your horrible affliction.

And now, without further ado, here are my 8 random facts:

1.) I've mentioned this before, but I have a precise and exact pattern for toweling my entire body off every day after the shower. The only time this fails is when I think about it and try to remember the order, in which instance the whole sequence crumbles.

2.) Very little irks me more than the 10 minutes of lights-down, have-to-watch commercials - before the movie trailers - before theater movies.

3.) One of the main things from parenthood that I've always wanted to do (and now have done many times) is carry a sleeping kid in from the car.

4.) Besides short flights to San Diego, Oakland and Seattle, I've never been to (or driven through) any of the other many states west of Missouri.

5.) I once had a job in the outdoor/landscaping area of a department store and had to answer the phone: "Pet and Garden this is Trevor Harden" - which rhymed and made me feel like an ass.

6.) In high school, my friends and I shot hundreds of hours of "home videos" (as we always called them) featuring tape after tape of short skits and filmed shenanigans and was always our first choice for recreational activity.

7.) Coffee, beer and chocolate: in each category, the darker the better.

8.) As I was pulling into the bank yesterday (which is a mere block from my home), a cop told me the bank was closed and to move along. Here's why.

Holy crap Trev... that's Misty. You know, the girl who dated Josh D. for a while and still remembers us by name before she pulls up our account. Poor girl had to deal with a bank robber... I'm totally taking in cookies on Thursday morning to the bank ladies.

And I literally laughed out loud about the "pet and garden trevor harden" thing.. I forgot for a minute and it's still as funny as it was the first time I heard it...

Well, I don't like my beer too dark, so I guess we differ there, but I just tried a hookah for the first time last night and I nuts about it!

Curious if you have, and if you like it.

Man, do I miss this. What an incredible feeling- indescribable. Enjoy carrying in the sleeping bundle while it lasts. It truly is a most blessed experience.

We made home videos when we were teenagers: I think some would land us in serious trouble with Home Land Security in today's world.

Also made some videos while on the road with the band- uuhm... we won't talk about, uh- er, those...uhm...

Celeste- Nice! Saw it!

Amy - I know, crazy.

Jon - Ya, I've smoked a hookah. There's a hookah bar over on the Purdue Campus. Fun stuff. I do enjoy it.

Tommy - I'll show you mine if you show me yours... haha...

Well, Trev, I was about to apologize for infecting you with this horrible meme. But I enjoyed reading your Random 8 so much, I just can't bring myself to apologize. :o)

Haha, thanks Darrell. Of course I'm just kidding about the infection. It's all in jest. It's actually quite fun and forces you to blog about stuff you never would've before! :)
