Seven Random Facts Meme

I have been tagged by Jeff with a seven random facts meme, and I will be tagging seven others at the end of my post. I'll try to make my seven facts good. I'm sure I've mentioned some of these before.

1. I have a soft spot for country music. If I'm the only one in the car, and I know I'll be the only one in the car for a while, inevitably I'll put on the country station if I don't have my iPod.
2. In the last two and a half years of concentrated weight loss, I have dropped 80 lbs. Conversely, when I graduated from high school 10 years ago, I weighed 80 lbs less than I do right now. I'll let you do the math on that.
3. I almost ended up with another degree, in religion. I just didn't want to stay in college another semester.
4. I hated the taste and effects of coffee until I started working at DHS, when I started to enjoy both.
5. I draw things to help me pay attention. In meetings, I tend to sit and doodle (and I'm a terrible artist), or simply draw geometric shapes. Someone once told me that people who do that use it as a means to help them remember things without writing them down, and it's true. If I haven't been drawing during a boring meeting, chances are I'll forget everything that was said within minutes (if I haven't been doing something else, like taking notes.)
6. I use my email inbox as a to-do list, and file every email that isn't on my to-do list in a specific folder. Whether this is good organizational skills or obsessive-compulsive behavior, I leave up to you to decide.
7. Once, I took a flying lesson. It was for an article I had been assigned to write for a local magazine. Someday, when I have nothing better to do with my time and money, I want to get my pilot's license. It was an exhilarating experience.

And now, my seven victims are:

and Liz.

I'll shoot you guys an email in a minute.
