Cut cuddle and be Cute

I'm itt....

I've been tagged
by "How To Cope with Pain". Here are the rules, and my responses.

What to do:
Link to your tagger, and post these rules on your blog.
Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird
Tag 6 people at the end of your post by links to their blogs
Let them know they’re tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

My weird/random facts:

  1. I am allergic to Ibuprofen (Advil for the non-medical types). It took me almost a year of experimentation to figure that out. Some of the hypotheses of what was causing the reaction included strawberry jelly, cold weather, Cherry Coke, Pepsi, eating at Macaroni Grill and getting olive oil/garlic sauce and homework. I'm still trying to convince someone to write that last one in the chart.
  2. Our second pet dog, Dakota was one of my best buds, and he could squeak a toy or growl along to songs. My relationship with him taught me that dogs really could like me and gave me that last push to get a guide dog. When he died, I realized I wanted to spend my life with a dog I could trust like him. I secretly believe that he's still cheering Julio and I on.
  3. I chose the women's only college I go to based on their caring attitude, but also because being of the heterosexual persuasion, I could avoid a romantic relationship. Their currriculum is less math-centric, and that weighed heavily in the decision.
  4. Orientation and mobility training for me almost always includes coffee, shopping or food.
  5. I have an aversion to email lists which will probably never go away. I still haven't found a way to manage my email effectively.
  6. If given the choice between warm or cool, I choose warmth.
  7. I've discovered through hard play and inaffective use of the cane that a blind person can truly see stars.
  8. I wish I hadn't done this list using html and had used proper formatting because I've lost count of how many facts I've written.

Finally, I tag anyone who wants to do this meme, but especially
because we haven't talked in a few weeks and I feel like saying hi.
Because Julio wants to say high to her furkids.
Anyone who hasn't done this before because my memory is that bad.
