Tag... You're it!

Charlene tagged me on her blog, Needle in Hand, to post 7 things about myself that people may not know, following the rules below. So I'll start with my seven weird or random facts, and then tag my fellow bloggers.

1. I love rocks. I love to collect them, and I have a favorite rock on my desk. I also have several small jars of interesting pebbles, larger jars filled with pebbles that I use for bookends, and a small jar of polished minerals and semi-precious stones that I keep on my desk to help me focus.

2. I don’t particularly care for vegetables, though I do like broccoli and eggplant. I prefer vegetables to be very browned (grilled, roasted, etc.) I won’t eat asparagus, or anything asparagus has touched. I do not eat iceberg lettuce or the ribs of romaine lettuce.

3. I fall asleep in the passenger seat of the car. As a consequence, I really have no concept of how long it takes to get somewhere or how far away things are.

4. I don’t like Halloween. Neither does my husband, so we make it a point to go out to dinner that night. (Mostly I don’t like children coming to my door demanding things).

5. I love rearranging furniture and organizing things. I will come to your house and do it for free

6. I think physical comedy like Jackass is hysterical. But I don’t think the Three Stooges are funny.

7. I have over a thousand books in my house, most of them in pristine condition. I am obsessive about the condition of my books and rarely lend them out.

And now, the rules....


1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post THE RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

Since I just tagged a few people for Making My Day, I'm going to pick 7 different people that I haven't tagged before. And now the 7 bloggers I'm tagging:


(If you've already done this, you don't have to do it again, but let me know if you do do it so I can come and see!)

I should take you up on #5... lol. As for #7 - me too! I don't have a thousand (probably 500), but all my books look like they just came from the bookstore and I'm darn straight going to keep them that way! (and #7 is why I need to take you up on #5 of course)

Well I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with a gazillion books. Are we talking fiction or non-fiction? Mine are mostly non-fiction such as cookbooks, crafting, gardening....
Really, I should take you up on #5 too! You may faint when you see the packrat house. I use to be organized, but now it seems hopeless at times.

Thank you.
In Defense of Halloween....I love it and my husband and I met on that night so long ago, but I agree about the kids. That is why we live on the third floor of a spooky looking apartment building. NO CHILD dares to enter! That way, we can eat the candy ourselves!

Hi Jennifer!
Thank you for visiting my blog. I couldn't help but notice your #5! You're not coming to western canada anytime soon eh? LOL I thank you for your suggestions. I've thought about hiring a professional, but we live in the middle of no where & the closest big city is about 6 hours away, I haven't heard of any professionals here, but I think I might just ask around, it couldn't hurt at this point! Thanks again! =)

Thanks for tagging me, Jenn, but dang, I just sat here for half an hour trying to come up with 7 things. I promise to keep working on it though. :)

Haha! I like surveys, but like I said...I'm trying to keep my blog survey-free, so I'll just comment my answers!!

1. I was in MENSA when I was six years old.
2. Speaking of which, I taught myself to read when I was two years old.
3. I have never dyed my hair.
4. I get fiercely protective over my car, for no good reason - it's a Cavalier.
5. I love my dog more than life itself.
6. I have an immense movie collection, and I can't stop collecting!
7. I have a very low tolerance for ignorance.

I finally posted my answers, Jenn!
