8 Random Things

Hey, folks! I've been tagged by Kate and Susie for 8 Random Things. (I feel like Sally Fields at the Oscars because of this. Well, and confused that I can't link to Susie's blog...)

Here we go:

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Now my 8 things.

1) Sunday afternoon/evening is pampering time for me. Sometimes I take a nap, I grocery shop w/ Mr. M (no, this is fun for me, really), I do my nails (fingers and toes), sometimes I henna my hair. It's a very nice way to wrap up the week. I feel like I have to be tough all week, and I get to be soft on Sundays.

2) I make the world's best pie crust.

3) I went to 13 schools, kindergarten through college. We moved a lot growing up.

4) I was a cheerleader in high school and college. I dated no football players, but we should probably not talk about my history with band members.

5) I am painfully bad with math, except word problems. I can solve word problems easily, but often cannot do the same function in a normal equation.

6) I weigh half of what my husband does, but easily eat twice as much. A college roommate once said that I eat like a trucker.

7) My mother and I have the same first name. I hated not having my own name growing up, putting up with the annoying jokes ("HehHehHeh... can I call you Junior?"). I used to buy baby name books, and think about all the things I might call myself when I was old enough to choose my own name and have it legal changed. (I kept my name.)

8) I'm extremely uptight about protecting my skin, but I loooove to be in the sunshine. I feel like I have a solar panel.

I tag:

And hope that I haven't missed a post where these ladies have already played...


  1. I love grocery shopping with my men too! Tim's the one who usually comes up with the awful one-liners (and the obscene uses for produce) but every once in a while Ray comes out with a real zinger...

    And then there's the dinner planning. Mmm!

    Well played!

  2. Okay, I played! Sorry it took so long, but I was going through a rough patch. I'm much better now!

    Sunday ! Sundae! Sunday!

  3. *blush* I really do need to read more closely... I tagged you again for the Random Eight! I think we should make a rule that if you've done it within the last month, that counts for all tags... :-)



"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
