Seven random things meme

I don't usually get tagged for these things! But, I was tagged by MrsFife, and figured why not?

List 7 random things about yourself on your blog.
Tag 7 others.
Leave a comment on their blog to direct them to your site to get the rules.

1.) One question I always struggle with seems so simple. In small talk, people always ask me "What's going on?" I never have a proper answer. I try to come up with an answer more interesting than "not much" or "same old." I always feel like I sound boring. Maybe I am.

2.) I have reoccurring dreams about smoking Djarum Blacks.

Here's the thing: I don't smoke, I've never tried it, and probably never will. In the dreams, I always end up smoking the wrong end of the cigarette in my dream, and end up with a tongue full of ashes. Disgusting.

3.) I lived in Australia with relatives for a few months about two years ago. Every summer since when it has been nice and warm here, it has reminded me of being there; it makes me miss the place so much!

4.) My computer is a dual-booting Macbook. It's so nerdy. I learned a lot in doing it. I'm not sure how to make this statement any more interesting!

5.) I recently tried to play Dance Dance Revolution again after a longish hiatus. Bad idea. All of my old scores loaded, and the fact that I can't even come near them has shown me how out of practice I am. The fact that I break a sweat fast shows how out of SHAPE I am.

6.) Portraits of Ren and Stimpy hang in the front room. They were painted by Steve's aunt a few moons ago; They're not too bad, to be honest.

7.) I'm scared to learn to drive a stickshift car. I didn't think I was until the other night when I was supposed to get my first lesson on a stick; I chickened out and made Steve drive home. Oops?

I think I'll forgo tagging anyone; a HUGE amount of the blogs I read have done this meme.

Stick shifts are evil

How cool to have portraits of Ren and Stimpy. Classic, my favorite episode is space madness.

Thanks for responding to the tag!
I have an oldfashioned iBook G4, bought last year. A Macbook might be nice, but I don't know if I want the glory of MS Windows again!
Almost all cars in India are what you call stick-shift. Me, I've never been convinced about the whole gear thing. I don't drive a car, but have a scooterette.
