Directions: Once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with 21 random things, facts, habits or goals about yourself. At the end, choose 10 people to be tagged. Don't forget to tag them in the note. You can't tag the person who originally tagged you.
I was recently tagged on Facebook to write 21 things about me that you wouldn't know. So that will be today's post. Some of you may know some of these things so skip over those tidbits of my fascinating life (snort!).
1.) I love my birthday as if it's a major holiday. If I could have a parade or a show on TV, I would just to celebrate my oldness, err rather my aliveness.
2.) I'm a major geek and check my Feedjit link several times a day to see if anyone new has found me from another continent. I finally got someone from Asia and about peed my pants with excitement.
3.) I love the sunshine but hate the heat in the summer as it sucks the life away from me and gives me horrible spasms.
4.) I have to spray the cat with a spray bottle when he gets too frisky with the Christmas tree and knocks down the decorations. The sad part is I pretend I'm a cop and he's a perp on the run.
5.) Sometimes (hanging my head here) I pour chocolate syrup into the peanut butter container and I eat it!
6.) I was supposed to go in to the Army after high school but did not because of issues with my knee and cold feet. I also almost entered the military again after college.
7.) I used to be a slow but easy runner and I miss it. Nothing quite like running an easy 5 miles and seeing those great calf muscles when you were done.
8.) I am afraid of snakes but getting better at looking at pictures and being in the same room with ones in aquariums.
9.) The two places I'd love to visit that I've never been to are Italy and to Africa (I know Africa is a big place called a continent).
10.) I like to watch the Bonnie Hunt Show (I think she's a hoot) and I prefer the Today Show in the mornings except for on Saturday when I like the CBS Morning Show.
11.) I prefer pens with black ink for general writing and green or purple ink for when I am grading papers.
12.) I once wanted and received the Clapper for Christmas. Sadly, it did not live up to its expectations.
13.) I'm not sure what my favorite color is because I seem to like green and blue about equally.
14.) I abhor horror movies.
15.) I don't drink coffee. I drink mostly cold water and once in a blue moon some hot chocolate or diet caffeine free soda.
16.) I like Cap'n Crunchberries but generally eat Special K fruit and yogurt cereal.
17.) I once drove a little speedboat up on to an island in the Disney World marina when I was about 12 or 13. Oops.
18.) I have my Wii and the Wii Fit and I am terrified I will be unable to put it together properly.
19.) I adore the Jimmy Dean commercials on TV with the sun and the moon and the fog. Pure genius!
20.) Reading is one of my great passions in life, fiction and non-fiction. I also like to find ways to raise money for charities I find worthy, especially charities that support people in Africa.
21.) I am so glad I started writing again. That's a gift to myself that no one else can ever take away.
Here's my tagged list and don't feel bad if you don't complete it. I know it's a lot of work!
