Meme about

I have been tagged by Old NFO with a meme. It's about me. This might be a tough one. /snark

Here are the rules if you decide to play along:
1) Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4) Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


Stuff about me:
1. My childhood pet was a cockapoo named Misty. I had her from when I was two until I was seventeen. As a child I tried to teach her to be a circus dog. Lots of times, though, she was my companion on the roof of my house. I hated being inside of it.

2. My first car was an orange Volkswagen Rabbit. I was flying down I-95 to a job interview when the tread on one of the tires flew off. This happened after I mocked someone broken down on the road. Lesson learned? Even your grandfather will sell you a lemon (yes, he made me give him a dollar bill) and "God don't like ugly". Since then (almost 20 years ago), when I see someone broken down on the side of the road, I pray for them.

3. I have a friend in California that works on movie, television, and commercial sets. We talked on the phone, today. He said it was nice to hear my voice. Awwww...warm fuzzies.

4. I'm actually a happy person despite my whining.

5. Twenty-one years ago this week, I moved to Los Angeles, lived with a band, did their hair and make-up, went to cosmetology school, hung out on the Sunset Strip, and almost ran over pedestrians, because that's what we do in Jersey. (Stopped for a pedestrian the other day; she looked at me like I was crazy.) I also rode on the back of a motorcycle without wearing a helmet.

6. I shot a rifle, once. When I'm nervous I laugh. A rifle and laughter do not mix, thus I do not shoot guns. Well, that and because my uncle, an expert marksman, shot and killed himself almost 10 years ago.

7. I hate wearing watches, shoes, anything tight around my wrists, and wearing socks. I've been that way forever. I was born 10 weeks early and they had me in restraints so I wouldn't yank out tubes and what-not. I wonder if I ended up conditioned from it.
I'm tagging:

**Since this is a draft/scheduled post, I can't really say "tag you're it" to anyone, since the post won't be up when I tag them. If you are visiting and you are one of the above and see this, well, you know what to do. I'll tag y'all when I get home from work--whenever that is.

Consider it done!

Heh, heh, "cockapoo."

Old NFO said...

You're probably right on your #7 RT- Some things you do NOT forget...

RT said...


Yep, I bet someone with a sense of humor made up that name.

Life-long thing. I tried wearing long sleeves tight around my wrists and turtlenecks: I feel squirrelly.

momster said...

Almost done should have it posted by tomorrow.

RT said...

Good. :)

USA_Admiral said...

Very nice.

Noddy said...

Nice to be included with all you colonials. Done.

RT said...

Excuse me? At least "colonials" got rid of England.

Hmmm...does Scotland have completely unfettered self-rule and independence from England?

(I'm being really sarcastic, of course.)


I'm sure my ancestors turn in their graves, daily. They are from Stirling, after all.

jt said...

Thanks, I appreciate this.

Mrs Grim said...

Done, and thanks, it gave me something to post about this week!

RT said...

You're welcome, JT. I knew you were just dying to do a meme. I'm a mind-reader you know. :) Actually, I figured with your excellent sense of humor, it would be a good read, and it was.

Mrs. Grim
Glad to be of service. I'm kind of dry on ideas this week, too. The news is just too depressing, and I don't really feel like ranting. Too tired.

dickiebo said...

Do you have any idea of the damage that you have done? There are 2.5 million Brits now doing this blasted meme!! lol.

RT said...

Well, geez, they could at least gives me some hits! HA!

Hey, my ancestry gave me bent pinkies and a bad thyroid. The least I could do is give you all a meme.
