YEA!! Something interesting to do..
A). Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
B). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
C). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
D). Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
For the sake of friendships new and old, I'll forgo the tagging others to do this also.
Ok, here we go...
1) When I was a kid, instead of nightmares of ghosts, ghouls, goblins, vampires, werewolves, venomous ducks, or spiders, I had nightmares of falling off of the face of the earth. I would have to hold on tight to my mattress to keep from falling up. :) Shel Silverstein there for you.
2)I like snakes and some spiders, but I don't like the spiders that can have a full phonebook land on top of them and laugh it off looking at me as if to say "That's all you got? You pansy" Those are like little mafia spiders who will come back with some of their no neck hairy knuckled friends and take care of me when I'm sleeping.
3)I write, I've been published more than a few times, but I don't let anyone read my papers outside of magazines, books or literary magazines.
4)I love swimming, I use to swim all year long, rain, snow, heavy winds or burning sun... Ok that really doesn't count I guess.
4 redux) I think that my mom helped Mie with some chicken noodle soup the other night, it tasted just like her chicken dumpling stew. :) Hi Mom!!
5)I think that I'm just a little more than slightly OCD, but I love messing with people who are truly OCD. One person in particular use to work with my sister and I would go over to their desk and move all of their meticulously placed pens, paper, and toys on their desk about a 1/2 inch to the left. Apparently this would make said person useless for the first 3 hours of the day due to putting everything right back in place.
6)I have never taken my parents car for a joy ride when I was a kid, never needed to, we had 2 go-karts and a bunch of mini bikes that we could terrorize the neighborhood with. And there was more than one occasion when my dad would come home to find the neighbors out front waiting for him because we lost control of a kart and took out a row of rose bushes at about 25 mph, cut across their lawns and generally created major havoc with a swath of destruction stretching from one end of the block to, conspicuously, our house. Go figure...
7)I'm a parent, and a damned good one at that. I make sure that my daughter stays in touch with her mom's family, even if they are a bunch of chowder heads who have threatened on more than one occasion to kidnap her and run off to Arkansas to raise her as their own. I sure would hate to call up some of my spider mafia friends to take care of that little problem. I hear one is a pretty good shot from a 1/2 mile off. :)
The more that I look at that list, the more I can think of, like when I was living up Medford, we'd go to a little zoo on the coast of Oregon, there I was able to hold interesting animals, including petting a mountain lioness, play with a Bangle Tiger cub, pet an Australian Raccoon (I think), not to mention Reindeer and other assorted animals....
That's all for now. :)
