Tying up some loose ends

seven.jpg  I have been tagged twice to do the Random Seven meme by Adventure Mom and Blog in my Eye and am a bit behind in getting to it. Here are the rules.

*Link to the blog of the person who tagged you.

*Post these rules on your blog.

*List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.

*Tag seven random [?] people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

*Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

So here we go.

  1. I have an aversion to feet. Actually I really like getting my own rubbed, but really freak out when someone else’s touch mine. It really doesn’t matter if they are sock footed or not, I really freak out. The hubby uses this fact to torture me as you may well expect. The only feet I don’t mind are baby feet which I love to touch and kiss. Not sure when that will wear off, but I am thinking 4 years old is getting dangerously close.
  2. When I traveled to China, I really hated the food. It is NOTHING like “American” Chinese food. So to combat starvation, I would regularly hail a rickshaw and have a poor little man literally run me to McDonalds so I could have a Big Mac. I know, I know, but would you have had me starve??
  3. Despite the backlash against Facebook for its breastfeeding prejudice, I have just joined. Why I need another thing on the internet to suck away my time, I have no idea. It is a sad race to accumulate friends and feel like you are loved. How old am I?
  4. I have a large light red birthmark that runs the entire length of my right arm. In the summer when I am wearing short sleeves, people often ask with major concern, “Oh my, is that a rash?” I have taken to responding that it is a hickey.
  5. I have never in fact had a hickey. I did however find a nifty website telling you how to remove one in case you get carried away.
  6. I am a firm believer that the decorating of the house for Christmas must take place Thanksgiving weekend or you are some sort of heathen. I am living in shame that our outside lights aren’t up yet. I am however basking in the glow of our tree right now.
  7. I take great pride in the fact that I know where all the whip cracks are in the song “Baby Got Back.” I learned them in high school and continue to mime a whip crack whenever I hear the song…which is thankfully not often.

If you are dying for more titillating facts about me check out my 100 things post over here. I have no idea who to tag for this that hasn’t already done it, but I am going to tag a few of my newest faithful commenters and anyone else left who is looking for a good meme: Marie, Erin, Jubilee, themommykelly, Kerry, hotomom and Courtney.

Also the lovely SAHMmy Says presented me with this lovely award.


Isn’t that the sweetest. Wisdom is my spiritual gift so it is good to know it is being put to good use (especially cause most days I am seriously questioning that gifts assessment I took). I am passing this award on to Big Binder cause she is full of all sorts of wisdom and is frankly making the rest of us look bad.


  1. What a fun meme!

    So Jill, send me your mailing address so that I can send you the book that you won! :)


  2. THANK YOU! I was completely blocked about what to write today! (This NaBloPoMo thing HURTS!)

    And on top of that, I feel so spay-shul. :)

  3. AWWWWW!! Thanks!!

    I need to take that gifts assessment thing too, considering last time I took a spiritual assessment like that it told me I wasn’t really Catholic, I was a Quaker. I find that fascinating.

  4. SAHMmy Says says:

    You put your gift to good use! Now you’ve got me thinking–is organizing a spiritual gift? :)

  5. Sally Brown says:

    Did you see the woman on facebook breastfeeding???? Who would post that? I have to agree with facebook on that one. By the way….we could be friends….I’m on facebook to and always excited to add someone!

  6. Courtney says:

    Oh! You didn’t mean me?


  7. What a cute award!

  8. hotomom says:

    Thank you very much for passing on the meme, it’s always nice to know someone thought of you.

  9. I’m playing catch up with reading my fav. blogs since we’ve been dealing with the “Yuck” here in the Jubilant household. Thanks for the tag and I’ll be posting my seven weird things soon.

  10. Thanks for the tag. I’m a tad bit behind on reading blogs and posting. Hope to get this up soon.
