about a me

I was tagged by starrhill girl; she thought i would not play, so i had to play. Otherwise, i most likely would not have played.

six things about me that you may or may not know and you may or may not care to know:

1.I love sour patch kids and gummy worms. I have an addiction that is insatiable; I have to cut myself off from even buying them cause I suck em down until my belly hurts. I blame the rocket (my friends' fun toy/strange things/candy store) for feeding this addiction.

2.I hate sleeping by myself at night. If kk is out of town I stick a chair up against the door handle so no one can kill me as I sleep. Even when kk is home, I keep an old aluminum baseball bat next to our bed in order to knock the shit out of potential intruders.

3.I love to shovel snow.

4.I come from a glamorous crew of women. My sisters are blonde knockouts and so is my mama. And then there is me…but while I might be exceedingly boy-like and opposed to make-up gracing my face, I’m still into my own kind of glamorous (I’m a clothes snob—not brand names, but outfits must be arranged with a creative zeal that satisfies my eye. It’s my family’s fault that I care about these things, but really I love it).

5.I am a bit of a hypochondriac. I get nervous about illnesses creeping up into me. I take my temperature more than normal people. This too is my family’s fault. My grandfather used to listen to his heart with a stethoscope many times throughout the day—I guess to hear if it was still beating. While I may be paranoid about viruses and bacterias, I do not go to the doctors very often…

6.I wear my heart on my sleeve. Therefore, it is terribly difficult to write these tag thingies cause I tend to be a bit too transparent and perhaps these little quirky things about me are really just a grand redundancy for some folks. Wearing my heart on my sleeve is not so good; people tend to know when I am pissed, distraught, or simply moody even if I am doing everything I can to hide it.

I am now tagging:
1. M--chickendiction cause you know you want it.
2. G--yesterday looks good cause you tagged me a while back (when i was in the middle of the report) and i did not play--so i thought i would play and tag you back so you could see i did play a little.
3. K--wading thru my head cause i want to hear about your quirks!

The rules:

1) Link to the person that tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog.
3) Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
5) Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6) Let the fun begin!

Ha. I knew I'd get you. I also love to shovel snow - if I can get my handy 12 year old to walk on my back afterwards.
Thanks.

I too am a hypochondriac who doesn't go to the doctor very often. I wonder if this is a non-bio mum thing?! No, don't answer that ;o)

I did it. Check the Yesterday blog. Wouldn't have pegged you for a hypochondriac... but certainly would peg you as a snow shoveler. I very much like it too, up until that last 25% of the driveway. We have a ridiculously long driveway!
