8 Random Facts

Well, Dawn at Whispers of Sunshine tagged everybody who read her blog to list 8 random things about themselves, then Gibee from Kisses of Sunshine tagged me to do 7 random things so I'm gonna do a little combo of both requests here.

Here are the rules she listed: Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules. At the end of your blog you need to tag 8 people and post their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

So here's the randomness:
1. I only like pretty tissue boxes. Preferably ones with purple or pink or some pretty bright colors on them. I hate the dull looking boxes at funeral homes, and ever since I was but a youngster I wanted to color the white tissue boxes at the doctor's offices so they'd be prettier.
2. I chew straws after I am done using them. This is apparently a family habit because my dad does it, my sister does it, and my brother does it.
3. I still have a few coloring books and some crayons at my house, even though I'm 24 years old. Sometimes when I'm really bored or if I'm stressed, I'll color for something to do or get my mind off of the craziness of life.
4. Ever since I was but a youngster I've made up little songs about my pets that I sing to them. I don't know what triggered this, but eventually I started writing actual songs that made since, so apparently I've always had the writer thing in me!
5. I put hot mustard on McDonald's Sausage and Gravy biscuits. It doesn't LOOK all that appetizing, but IT. IS. DELICIOUS!
6. I believe from the bottom of my heart that a smoothie just isn't a smoothie unless it has bananas in it. My sister tells me I'm totally wrong about this. But I'll stand by my thoughts and if I order a smoothie, it will be with bananas!
7. I can pretty much quote any Judy Garland movie. Especially Summer Stock, Meet Me in St Louis, and The Harvey Girls.
8. I'm not pregnant! No, I shouldn't be for those of you who are wondering, but when I went to the doctor the other day they made me take a pregnancy test even though I told them there was NO CHANCE I was pregnant. I'm never "on schedule" but they wouldn't believe that. Just wanted me to take the test, so rather than argue with them all day, I did it just to make them happy. And guess what, I. WAS. RIGHT! DUH!

Now I have not a clue who to tag. If you haven't told about your randomness, share all!

Your #8 cracked me up! I could see you saying, "What part of 'I would have to actually have sex in order to be pregnant" do you not understand?"

GiBee said...

Speaking of Judy Garland, there is an exciting and popular new group on Yahoo called The Judy Garland Experience. The group features ultra rare audio files, rarely seen photo's, lively discussions and more! This week in the audio section we are featuring a rare 50's concert presentation where the entire Rat Pack joined Judy onstage for their usual hijinx, Judy's complete 1967 concert on The Boston Common, several other garland audio odds and ends, and if that isn't enough we are also featuring excerpts from a rare 1973 concert performance by Mae West, yes, I said Mae West (you will just have to visit the group to find out why).
We have members from all levels of Judy fandom, hardcore, newbie's, Garland family members, people who knew and worked with Judy, authors, historians, film makers, other celebrities, and more. The only thing missing is you! Please stop by our little Judyville and check it out, you may never want to leave!
