To echo and earlier post, what's the operational importance of
assigning adjacent /8s?  Are you hoping to aggregate them into a /7?

Why not 36 & 37?

Random selection to ensure that no RIR can accuse IANA of bias.  See

Because relying on a blog post for policy really meets everybody's
definition of rationality.... :-(

If you're assigning 2 at the same time, they should be adjacent.

The dribbles here and there policy never was particularly satisfying,
because it assumes that this was all temporary until the widespread
deployment of IPv6.
