More Weird Things about Moi

IN THE NEWS: According to World Magazine, "This just in from the Environmental Protection Agency: Squirrels near Ringwood, N.J., are once again safe to eat. In January, the agency warned locals not to eat the rodents after discovering a dead squirrel near a local toxic waste dump had lead contaminants in its system. After further tests, scientists at the EPA believe the lead came from a blender used to puree the squirrel meat for testing. The news comes as a relief for Ramapough Mountain Indians and an indeterminate number of New Jersey residents who enjoy squirrel meat."
(Not me, though)

Well, I knew it'd be coming soon enough. And it finally happened. AGAIN. But this time, I've been tagged by Lesley Speller .

Here are the rules:
Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

Gee, I think I've done this twice already, so I don't know how many more weird things there are about me... but what the heck, right?

(Again, the same rule applies: If I repeat myself, just nod and pretend I'm telling new information)

7 Random Facts About Myself:

1.... I've recently become addicted to Country Music. Oh, in the past, I've been amused by a few songs here and there, but now I am seriously "into" it and even had to watch the Country Music Awards show.

2.... I have a real passion for salt bagels and a good lox & cream cheese spread.

3.... Much to the horror of my meat-loving family, I think sausage is just OK. Meh.

4.... I won the Fifth Grade Spelling Bee. (And Chuck, if you're reading this, I won it fair and square. You choked on the word "coffee" or was it the word "sheriff"? Well, either way, I still have the trophy.)

5.... My idea of the perfect vacation is reading a book on the beach all day, going out to a great restaurant at night, then "sleeping in" the next day. (I'm a simple woman, really)

6.... I actually have a wonderful relationship with my mother-in-law.

7.... When I was a freshman in high school, I had the BIGGEST crush on the marching band drum major--who was a senior! One day, I finally got enough courage to find out his phone number and call him to invite him to my birthday party. We talked, we laughed, he said he would come. He never did. Broke my heart. But I'm not bitter!!!!

Anyhew, I'm not going to tag anyone else. Unless...

Babe King and Kristen Painter want to play. (I bet they'd have some cool stuff to share)

Have a great weekend!

Enjoy your weekend!

Ditto! And may I add, if this is the case, DO NOT take two energetic teens with full passes to Disney and Universal studios and be dumb enough to expect to get ANY vacation time in. :(

But we did have fun. :)
