Random Facts Friday (BAM!)

in keeping with my buddy Red, I am stealing Katie's meme and doing a Random Friday Facts...BUT, as Red pointed out, it should be Random Facts Friday, as not all of the facts are about Friday.....
So here you go:

1. the human head weighs 8 pounds. (well, not actually)
2. i often carry my back pack from home to work and back again without ever opening it. this could go on for days. the only thing i 'really' need it for is a standardized place to put my ID badge.
3. i recently discovered Edith Piaf on Pandora. i find her music pleasant to work by.
4. this halloween will be 4 years since i have had candy. and NO, chocolate chips in ice cream don't count.
5. the Chinese character that the Japanese use for Friday is the same one they use for Gold. and friday is usually pay day.
6. i love maps. i could have a room wall-papered with them and get lost for hours. days. i also have an incredibly keen sense of direction and rarely get lost, even in strange cities at night (trip home from OBX?)
7. RAN is one of my favourite movies ever.
8. i keep a picture of my Dziadziu (grandfather) on the wall near my desk. He's looking at the camera over his glasses. That picture has helped me get through some ridiculous times and sour moods. I miss him dearly (he's been gone 10+ years).
9. i don't understand why you can't buy glass front fridges for home use.
10. +1, me


  1. Done. (+1) :)

    Also, Lemming.


    I love maps too, I want to frame one of the U.S. and start pinning all the places I've traveled, ran, and wish to go/run.

    No candy in 4 years? I would never have made it this far. At least you have SF Red Bull!!!

  2. im a big map guy too.i love giant wall sized world maps. Nerd.

  3. oooh, i would love a glass front fridge!

  4. Glass front fridge would be bad for me. I'd end up eating more because I could always see the yummy things inside tempting me.

    And I couldn't go without candy for 4 days.

  5. OMG, I have never thought of that, I would love a glass front fridge at home. Also, you reminded me that I want to get a giant world map for my son's wall in his room. I love maps too and I think Geography is overlooked these days, which is probably why I saw shirts in Austria that say "No kangaroos in Austria"...people are morons. LOL

  6. Edith Piaf is great. My grandmother chose Je Ne Regret Rien as one of the songs for her funeral. Perfect.

  7. ((runs off to Google Edith Pilaf). no wait! that's Rice Pilaf. Sorry.

  8. Ooh glad front fridge, oooooooooooo map wallpaper!!!
