I have to admit–I’ve been hoping to get blog-tagged and now that I have, I don’t really get it! JC over at Crafty Handbags tagged me and said I need to follow these rules:
1. Link your tagger and list 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.
Basically all facts about me are weird, and many are random! Here’s my seven…
1.) I really hate getting phone calls. I think it’s in large part due to the fact that I’m not a good multi-tasker. I can’t do anything else successfully when I’m on the phone so I feel like I’m totally missing something. I particularly hate hearing the phone ring on Sundays and will most like ignore any non-urgent and unknown calls. Now, watch, no one will ever call me again and I’ll retreat into a Howard-Hughes-esque state of agoraphobia!
2.) Speaking of Howard Hughes…I think he had it right, keeping away from humanity and all. OK, so I’m exaggerating a bit–I’m not quite where Howard was, but I think I could be. I have anxiety and OCD symptoms that can be, at times, crippling. Specifically, my anxiety is brought on by germs and proximity to other people. I do my best to function normally–most of the time! ; ) It ain’t always easy though.
3.) When I was in second grade I won a contest for painting the best "fire safety" poster at school. I got my picture in the newspaper plus a $50 savings bond! That savings bond is probably worth $39 today.
4.) I can talk backwards, fluently. I discovered this talent/deformity in junior high when I saw a bag of Doritos and reversed the letters in my mind. It sounds like another language.
Geez, three more to go–does anyone really care?
5.) I truly believe that exercising is the devil’s work. Except for yoga. I really like yoga.
6.) My grandmother had bypass surgery over this past Thanksgiving. I’m not quite sure of her exact age (we celebrate her birthday like 3 or 4 times a year so I can’t keep up) but it’s about 81 or 82. She’s never had a medical problem in her life–never taken any prescription meds, nothin’! She’s in fantastic shape and full of life. When we heard she had a heart attack no one could believe it because she’s been SO healthy. But healthy she remains–she was up and walking within a day of her surgery. I hope I got some of her genes!
7.) Okay last one…it should be good. Ummm…I brush my teeth in the shower. And then at night, I brush them regular by the sink.
Now, I think I’m supposed to go tag someone else…You can get the pretty gift tags pictured above at Lemon Tree Studio’s Etsy Shop.
