We spent this afternoon at our neighborhood’s annual block party. It was a nice time, but it was hot & sticky. We wimped out and left a little early so we could come home, eat a
junk finger food supper, watch an episode of Due South and play Rummikub.
Dancin Jules tagged me the other day! I’ve been wondering if anyone ever would – it was starting to feel like grade school gym class where I was always the last one to be picked. (sniffle.) But now Julie picked me for her team, yay! I’ll try not to drop the ball, LOL!
Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.
- My feet get claustrophobic in shoes. Sometimes I get all panicky, if my toes don’t have room to stretch.
- I used to spend my summers riding my bike to the library, checking out Agatha Christie books, and reading the day away outside in the patio. I usually only took one or two days to finish each book.
- Before Agatha Christie, my favorite author was Judy Blume, and before that was Beverly Cleary. I used to love those Ramona books!
- I only remember three projects clearly from my Girl Scout Days: a t-shirt we tie-dyed and then silk screened, finger knitting, and interviewing my grandmother about her childhood.
- If I go for more than a few days without a Dr. Pepper, I get cranky.
- One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday morning is go for a long drive through the countryside, with the windows open, singing along to a CD I made specifically for that purpose. I often find it to be a more spiritual experience than going to church would have been.
- Neil and I used to stay up late on the weekends and often caught episodes of Due South at 1:00 in the morning. We’re having fun watching them on DVD now and sharing them with the kids. Eamonn loves the theme song. And that Benton Fraser is not hard on the eyes at all. Gotta love a man in uniform – even a mountie
- I am a mosquito magnet and am usually the one who gets eaten alive when I’m out with a group.
