I've Been Tagged!

Don't you just love the Internet? I never realized when I began blogging how many cool people I would meet and how interconnected our lives are. I just got tagged by one such mega cool mama, Chi-Chi of the blog Where there's a will there's a way. I so admire her style, prose and poise. You rock, mama! Anyway she tagged me so not only do I need to complete a list of requirements, but I need to tag seven others.

First the rules:

So...let's see, seven random or weird facts about myself.
1. I despise coconut, I think it has the texture of hair and it makes me want to go ah, eh, ah, eh and wipe it off my tongue.
2. I never go barefooted. I hate it. Even in the summer I either have on flip flops, sock or slippers. As a result of always wearing slippers I go through several pairs/year.
3. I can't take naps. No matter how tired I am in the daytime I just can't sleep if the sun is up. It kind of sucks since occasionally I'd love to just take a little siesta.
4. I've suffered from migraines most of my life and I distinctly remember the very first one I ever had when I was about eight years old.
5. I can't eat any food that know that has a waxy pickles. It's like nails on a chalkboard to me and it sets my teeth on edge. I know...kind of weird, huh?
6. I've time traveled...Well sort of. When we lived overseas and were flying there, we crossed the international dateline. So behind us it was one day and ahead it was another...I lost a day so I traveled into the future essentially...even if it was just for a day, lol.
7. My most favorite books of all time are "Pride and Prejudiced" and "A Prayer for Owen Meany". I mean who doesn't love Pride and Prejudiced, it's timeless. Doesn't every girl want to find love? Doesn't every girl have a crazy, dysfunctional family...with a bad sister and a mother who is all up in your business? Ok...maybe it's just my family, lol...but I know that story by heart. And Owen...come on, you have to love this story of the triumph of the human spirit. Owen is an amazing fully developed character. One of the best written characters I've ever read and that's saying a lot since I read constantly.

That's seven. I could go on. But, I'll save some things for another time.

Ok, I'm going to tag the following people.

1. Brandy of the blog The Baldwin Girls
2. Steph of Steph's Random Life
3. Dawn of Olabelhe
4. Mary of Confessions of a craft addict.
5. Tonya of Everything I've got
6. Samantha of The Handmade Dress
7. I want to tag Heather of the blog HeatherK, but when I went today she had posted that she was on hiatus and I couldn't leave a comment. Heather, I hope you see this and know that I'm thinking about you and hope all is well with you. Take care, mama!

I can't do it right now but I will get to tagging people. Looks like fun.

I hate being barefoot too and coconut does not make my list of fave foods at all (although I don't mind shredded coconut baked into stuff). I adore pickles and can take a nap at any time of day if somebody would just come and watch these younguns'. LoL. I had migraines as a child too but thankfully by the time I was 18, I no longer suffered. (((hugs)))

Ooooh, thanks for playing and for the compliment mama!!! I think you are mega cool too and lurve your blog!! You're an inspiration to me. It was great learning all those things about you!
