I've Been Tagged by Missy T.

Okay, I'm sitting here quietly minding my own business, just enjoying my anonymity, when all of a sudden, I'm tagged by MISSY T. Needless to say, Missy is now . . . on the run.

Since this is a first for me, we'll see what happens:

Here Are The Rules

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Eight Random Facts About Me

1) When I shop I spend hours gathering things I love, then I think and I wonder and I doubt, and end up putting everything back. You do not want to go shopping with me.

2. I turned 35 right after my one and only child was born; I went through natural childbirth--as if I had good sense. Precious baby was colicky beyond control. My sweet husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said a vasectomy. And he is very sweet. :)

3. I still love Elvis. I wish the rumors were true and he'd return from that secret island he's living on. I got tears in my eyes when he walked out on the American Idol stage with Celine. I had an opportunity to see him once--FREE ticket, and turned it down. :( Guess I didn't love him enough.

4. If I had to trade my writing talent for any other talent, I would trade it for a beautiful, jazzy voice. I'm sorry to say I sound like a frog.

5. My best writer friends are no longer writers. I'm very sad about that.

6. My favorite dessert is ice cream--plain old vanilla. I can do exciting things with plain old vanilla. Yum yum.

7. When I watch HGTV where they're cleaning, organizing, and FORCING participants to sell their treasures in a garage sale, I hyperventilate. I'm a packrat and I love my junk. Trouble is. . . I love everyone elses' junk too.

8. I don't have a clue what to do with a comma. The way I see it I have two choices: ignore them completely or sprinkle them randomly. It all depends on my mood.

Okay, I'm tagging the following friends and hope they don't mind.

Thanks for the tag! I'm a bit of a packrat, too, but I'm learning. Also, I'm an older mom, but didn't have natural. My daughter was born by emergency C-section! Glad to know you're reading me!

Winter said...

Hey, Jess! Thanks for letting me know you tagged me. I've done this one before and here's the link:

Happy reading!

Mary Louisa said...

Jess, it was fun reading your random facts and thanks for tagging me, too. It might take me another day or two to get it going. I think you caught my name within Martha's blog tag, btw. ;)

You and Nancy and I are all older moms! I had my first child at 38 by c-section and my second natural at 40. Although the first experience was just fine, the second was earth-shattering! (In a good way, I mean...)

Jessica Burkhart said...

Ooh, a tag! I'll post mine soon! :) I'm in the middle of watching the Kentucky Derby right now...

Pamela S Thibodeaux said...

Hey Jess!

Thanks for tagging me...I think.

I'll be posting my info soon so watch my blog on MySpace...

Lisa said...

What fun!! And here I was wondering what I would post this week...(wink)

Missy T said...

Jess, I can barely watch those organizing shows either! It gives me a stomach ache just thinking about letting people go through my stuff. And to show my mess on TV??!! Oh, my. The humiliation.

Missy :)
