Tagged

For some reason, or many, it has been hard to get around to posting. But I need to post something so you can get over my last post on tampons and vasectomies.

I got tagged by Brooke over at Txting Mr Darcy. I guess it is officially an award, but I am going to call it a tag because I think a blogging award is somewhat unmerited… and then I am only going to follow the rules I want to: I am rebellious and irreverent that way. I will thank her because it was lovely of her to think of me. Thank you, Brooke!

I have actually been avoiding this post because it is one of those meme things, where I have to tell you 7 things about me that you don’t know. I have been wracking my brain, I tell you. I think you guys probably know me better than some of my siblings do. Also, I wrote this and pretty much covered ALL the things there are to know about me. So I will now write just totally random things from the bizarre recesses of my little head.

1. I love cheddar cheese on my Spaghetti (all Italians now shudder in disgust and muttering something about “stupid brute Americans”). I can’t help it, it was the way I was raised. And it was the first meal I had once after a stomach virus and it is forever carved into my memory as the BEST MEAL EVER!

2. My first “French” kiss was at 13 in my basement with a boy who had just drunk beer. I thought the taste was so foul, I excused myself and went upstairs to wash out my mouth. I still can’t drink beer, but I can now stomach kissing a certain beer-drinker.

3. My favorite perfume is Carolina Herrera’s 212. I love it. It is my fragrance and for years (12) the only one I wore (I recently got a new perfume as a gift that I like quite a bit). I am very possessive of 212. If my sisters say they might buy it, I freak out a little and tell them it is MINE, my scent, and they need to go find their own.

4. There is a teeny tiny part of me that loves country… music, dancing, cowboys and I have even contemplated on several occasions the purchase of cowboy boots.

5. These are my favorite underwear. They are cute (enough). They are cotton. They ride low but don’t ride up or in between. I will never understand the thong underwear craze. Buy some and come back and thank me because they will make your tush look cute.

Thinking thinking, stretching stretching… seven things is a lot of things. OMG There has to be something else in there...

6. I wanted to be a librarian when I was little. It was my first career goal. I used to make my brothers and sisters check out books from our bookshelves. I believe some of them still owe me over-due fines… plus interest.

ahhhhhh just one more... thinkthinkthinkthink....

7. I want to run a marathon--which may not be something you don't know actually. I already run quite a bit, I could run a half marathon if I wanted, so that doesn't feel like big enough goal; I just need to seriously train for the complete one. Maybe before I am 40... which is not that far off... good god!


So, the last rule is that I am supposed to pass it on, but I am shy about that, so I won't, but if anyone wants to play, consider yourself tagged...

Cheddar cheese on spaghetti, eh? Okay, I guess we can still be friends. Especially given that we both have bizarre recesses in our heads which produce random thoughts.

I have a comfort food scenario similar to your cheddar on spaghetti. It was instant mashed potatoes after having a wisdom tooth pulled. I get it. But no beer, ever? Have you tried it again lately? If you haven't already made this little "country" discovery--Ryan Bingham's songs on the Crazy Heart soundtrack are pretty fun (and he's a cutie).

Well, I like cheddar cheese on my spaghettios... isn't that kind of the same?

I really enjoyed learning things about you! Good luck on your marathon!

Clove cigarettes. One of my early kisses involved clove cigarettes and I still love the smell and then think of the taste and shudder.

I'm not judging the country thing. I've got a little of that in me too.

So re the first 25 things: I am Taurus and my husband is Virgo... and so are his parents. Also? I sleep with earplugs and complete darkness and STILL hear the kid before my husband.
Oh and when I was little I wanted to own an ice-cream shop... the plan was to keep it closed all the time and eat all the ice-cream myself.

I stole your idea for my newly created about me section. Also, I love cheddar cheese on anything. That's what happens when you grow up in Vermont, I think. It's one of the things I miss the most about home when I'm in Chile.

Haha, Way to be a rebel!! I couldn't cringe at your cheddar on spaghetti, because like you and denise I had an experience with 'sick food' and cheeseburgers are forever ingrained in my memory as the best food ever.
