I've Been Tagged!!

Heather, at Things Above, tagged me. I'm supposed to list 15 things that I'm not afraid to admit.

Heather thought this was fun... I'm not sure... well, here goes:

1. I'm 44.

2. I'm actually quite gray.... well, pure white, really.

3. I'm a 'smidgen' over the ideal weight for my height and body frame. (Whew! I crack myself up)

4. I don't like to watch sad movies or read sad books.

5. I can't watch a scary movie unless the sound is off.

6. My home probably wouldn't win a Good Housekeeping seal of approval.

7. I cannot whistle.

8. I have no lips ( okay, now that kind of hurt to admit).

9. I'm addicted to Coca~Cola. It's the REAL THING!!!

10. I'm uncomfortable meeting large groups (you know, anything over 2 or 3) of people.

11. I can't stand for pictures and mirrors to be even slightly uneven; I will fix them... anywhere.

12. I will attempt to break your arm if you screeeeeetch your fork on a plate near me.

13. I tried to crochet once and my mother and sister told me to stick with singing... or reading... or twiddling my thumbs! ( Gotta love that familial support, hmm?)

14. I'm a sap for old-fashioned, sappy, blissfully happy and everything-always-works-out- perfectly-in-the-end kind of books. Usually copyrighted in anywhere between 1850-1940.

15. My family sits around practicing the sinister, deep-throated, villainous 'muahahaha' laugh. In fact, my son is quite impressed with mine.

My job is almost done. Now, I am to tag 5 other, unsuspecting bloggers.

#11 is OH SO TRUE!!!!! For real, anyone want to see it, just tilt a picture or mirror before my mom comes in/over and she will walk over (while talking with you) and fix the crooked thing!!! She fixes pictures in restaurants, other people's houses, and churches...ANYWHERE!

#12, well ummm....yep, it is true too!!!! I DARE YOU to try it!

And yes, #15 is completely correct! I simply CANNOT create the 'sinister, deep-throated, villainous' laugh....Unless....I think about the oh so sweet syrupy goodness of Johnny Carino's Raspberry cream soda thing!


Love, Thing 1

hey you have too many Ws in front of the Blakes' blog.

Edie said...

You too are very funny. I'm totally with you on #10 AND #11.

I always straighten pictures just like Thing 1 described, while talking to someone, as though it's just a part of the conversation. So what's the problem? LOL. :D
