Random acts of Ala

I was tagged the other day by a client, Nina. So I guess I'm supposed to write 6 random things about me. Here goes.

1. I adore google reader. If you don't know what google reader is, it's a place that houses all the blogs you love to follow all in one place. One of the first things I do in the morning is check my reader for all the newest content people out there are talking about. My reader consists of photography blogs, design blogs, sports blogs, random rambling blogs, etc. I'm pretty sure I'm addicted.

2. I love hats. I don't care what store I'm in or if they're even appropriate for any of my clothes, I'm constantly buying hats. I think they're so fun and liven up any outfit. Fedoras, beanies, baseball caps, berets, etc. You name it I probably own a couple. Plus if you're having a bad hair day or just don't feel like doing your hair, you can throw on a hat and voila!

3. I'm super competitive. Like, super. Like, since birth. I remember being in first grade and sizing up my classmates to make sure I had THE best kickball team at recess. In first grade! But to this day I'm like that. Even when I try not to care, I still do. It's uncontrollable. Recently, my friends all got together for a "game night" where we drank beer/wine and played SceneIt. We had to have a tiebreaker and the game said whoever grabbed the dice first, won the question. Well, let's just say glass broke and I ended up bleeding...but I GOT THE DICE!

4. My mom calls me my dad's son. I've always been a sports fanatic. Any sport is on, I'll watch it. Extra tickets to a sporting event, I'm there. Plus I know useless facts about teams and players that according to my mom, girls shouldn't know. I was never a tomboy either. I actually love girly things, but I liked those things along with sports.

5. I brush my teeth with hot water. I personally don't think this is random but according to Steven this is listed under the "weird things she does" file. I don't know when exactly I started this, but I despise brushing with cold water. It doesn't feel nice. Do you shower with cold water? No! So why brush your teeth with it?

6. I like dessert more than food. Some would say I tolerate eating dinner because I know there's the possibility of having a yummy creamy chocalatey something or another afterward. Any time of day, any day of the week, if sweets or desserts are involved I want to be a part of it.

The "rules" of the game are as follows:
1. Post the rules on your blog
2. Write 6 random things about yourself
3. Tag 6 people at the end of your post

Most of the peeps I know read this blog aren't bloggers themselves so for now, I'll tag:

Anyone else who wants to reflect on their own randomness!

Off to shoot a wedding! Have a great weekend everyone!

1. Google Reader: Greatest thing ever.
2. My head is too big for most hats. Hmph.
3. I take it you're the player who leads the entire time but has to make the point to your opponent who runs the show.
4. I was like that too as a kid until Joe Montana broke my heart (Niners fan back in the day).
5. That's pretty random.
6. I don't discriminate when it comes to food. Yee-haw!
