Six More Random Things About Me

Tammie tagged me to name six random things about myself. I've already done it, but I don't mind doing it again, so here goes:

1. I love magazines, but not the clutter. I am fairly diligent about cutting out and filing pictures, articles, recipes, etc., that I want and recycling the rest. However, once I file them, they rarely ever see the light of day again until I purge. Which isn't often. I also like mailing articles to people I think would be interested. I have done this for years, and yes, I know it's weird.

2. Even when it is stinkin hot outside, I have to sleep with at least a sheet on me.

3. I never pay full retail if I can help it. I am a champion bargain hunter and almost always have a coupon code and/or a rebate program. If you are interested in the ones I use, email me.

4. If I have ever acknowledged or celebrated your birthday in any meaningful way, I probably remember it. I remember birthdays of people I haven't spoken to in YEARS as well as pretty much everyone in my current circle.

5. I cannot, however, remember phone numbers. There are exactly 9 phone numbers I can recall off the top of my head: our home and cells, my ILs home and FIL's cell. I can also recall my childhood home number, my grandparents (who have been deceased for ~25 years), my aunt, and my best friend's father's home number. I do not know my DH's work #, the numbers of any of my closest friends or family members. I only know their speed dial location on my cellphone.

6. For luck on my wedding day, I had a silver sixpence taped onto my shoe (I wore sandals) and a tiny horseshoe charm on my ankle bracelet. Our wedding colors, blue and silver, and our theme, stars, were selected because we're just that devoted to our Dallas Cowboys. (DH's uncle, a longtime Redskins fan, made a face when he figured this out.)

My father is big on sending packets of newspaper clippings to my sister and me. And yes, it's weird! :)

Thanks for the Monday morning smile. It is really fun to learn new things about others. I love your squares for the Christmas Fair and Square. Nice work!

I'd like to know what rebates, etc. you use. I think you did tell me one correct?
I also clip magazines-but wait too long most of the time (or lend them to my mom who forgets to give them back and when she does it's about 30 at a time)and then overdo it. However, I will not clip Martha Stewart Living magazine. I have almost all of them, but need to organize them better.
Also, can only store a few phone #s in my head. Forget me knowing anyone elses SS# too.
I did the something old, etc. when we got married. : )

I'm with ya on #2! I'm interested in your rebate/coupon stuff. Drop me a line when you get a chance.

I don't think it's weird at all that you send articles to people. I love when people send me stuff. In the old days, it was always about bands I liked. And now, well, now no one sends me jack.
