I’ve been tagged by Ryan Bruner over at Ryan Bruner’s Blog.

Here’s the deal:  I need to reveal five relatively unknown facts about myself.  Then I have to tag five other bloggers and challenge them to do the same.  I think I can do that. 

Five Random Kerri Facts:

  1. One of my biggest vices is chewing gum. I am always chewing gum.  But I’m not the loud-snapping, bubble blowing airhead type.  I’m more the subtle, minty-fresh type.  Addicted to the stuff.  Stashes everywhere at my office and in my home.  I’ve tried to quit several times but it’s nearly impossible.  Smack those lips.Is there a "patch" for this?
  2. I am addicted to LipSmacker lip gloss in delicious strawberry.  I have been using it since I was about 8 years old and I haven’t matured enough to transition to something else yet.  Doubt I ever will, actually.  It tastes so nice and has that shiny, glossy look going on.  I can’t get enough.  $1.19 at my local CVS.  The Sausage actually just trotted by with a tube of LipSmacker in her mouth. 
  3. I am not afraid to admit that I’m wrong.  Actually, I do it all the time.  Because I’m wrong all the time.  To not admit it is scandalous.  If someone uses a word I don’t know, I can’t pretend to know it.  I have to ask what that word means, even if it makes me look a little simple.  If I gave the wrong answer to a question, I can’t back-peddle and pretend I knew all along.  I have to admit that I didn’t have a clue.  
  4. I’ve never been in a physical fight in my life, except for ones with my sister.  (Sorry for stealing your pacifier when you were a little kid, Courtney.  I was a crumb.)  But I crave a good fight sometimes.  If given the chance, I would punch exactly three people in the face.  I have them all picked out.  I fantasize about it sometimes.  It’s a nice little mental vice I enjoy.
  5. When I was a little girl, I was running towards the car in a gravel parking lot.  I was wearing a black dress with a big tiger on the front.  (This was the 80’s ... forgive my fashion choices.)  I slipped and fell in the lot and tore up the entire underside of my right thigh.  It has since healed and there are no scars, except for this tiny one where there is a teensy little piece of gravel still stuck inside.  You wouldn’t notice it if you looked at me, but I know it’s there and it makes my stomach knot up just thinking about it.

There.  Five random facts.  And now, Five Tagged Bloggers:

Dood, I knew I liked you for a reason. You're the only person who realizes that I really AM the Queen. :D I'll put it up tomorrow.

Aw, Lipsmackers. Now I want to go out and buy it. I wore it religiously when I was a kid.

Lip smackers OMG, you are aging yourself lol... do you remember roll on lip gloss in all those delicious flavors haha cherry was my fave, you would just sit there putting it on and licking your lips the whole day...ok im old

i'm a total gum addict. it's really insane, actually.

and the weirdest thing? when i'm pregnant...gum makes me sick to my stomach so i can't chew it...but the day my babies are born...i'm totally back on gum!

Two things:

First, do I know any of the prospective punchees? I am madly curious about this.

Second, I have a small piece of metal stuck in my hand from a sledgehammer incident that happened in 7th grade. It still skeeves me to know that it's there, and if someone shakes my hand wrong and I feel it, I get the screaming heebie-jeebies.

I love 4. I play hockey but those do not count as much as an all out street brawl. And i do too have alist. But the first one of them to hurt my family will get bumped up to code red #1 on that list.
Anyhow ilove your site!!!!

Super George has posted!

Thanks for the tag. Those are a lot of fun and dood, I have never been in a fight either. I am too busy being everyone's friend I guess. Or maybe it's the glasses.

Kerri...Do you remember that day when we where driving to the mall from the AAA. I was driving behind you. We stop at a stop light...and the girl in the car in front of you got out and came to your window! I thought we both where gonna be in a physical fight that day!! This was not the same day we chased my hubcap down the highway!!

OMG, lip smackers!!!

Bobby - You don't know any of the prospective punchees. I've made all my enemies post-high school. :)

Batman - I remember that day. But she didn't come to my window ... she opened my car door!! I almost peed my pants. (We did recover your hubcab, right?)

Rachel, Gina, and Shannon - I can't let go of the LipSmackers thing. I'm obsessed. :)

Ali - Being a gum addict is something that I can't deny. I'm glad I'm not alone.

George - I guess we aren't the fighting type. But that's okay. You're still SuperG.

Chris - Hockey is the best excuse to hit someone. I loved going to the Providence Bruins games in hopes of seeing some bruising. :)


glad it's not me. :P

Funny, I think the people I'd most like to punch in the face were from pre-college days. *coughlikeacertainpsychologyteacherandcoachcough*


I still use them myself. I'm a big fan of Dr Pepper, plus it's a good job interview lip color...not too shiny, just a little bit of color so you don't look washed out, plus good smells always calm me down in nerve-wracking situations!

Don't even get me started on the Bubble Gum stuff. I know one time when I was really little I got one and tried to bite it. NOT as tasty as you'd think...
