Third, I was tagged by Cathy from Where’s My Damn Answer to complete this meme. And I was tagged by my pal Betty from The Joe Review to complete the same meme. So, this is a Two For One!

7 Things You Do NOT Know About Me.

(This one is going to be hard, I think I’ve told ya’ll everything about me!)

1. I Don’t Like Going To The Beach

[Its just too much ‘work’ for me. Finding a parking space, carrying all those chairs, the sand that you can never fully wash off for weeks….]

2. I Only Drink Out Of One Cup (It’s A Glass Mason Jar w/ A Straw)

[I love straws. I love then so much I have to have a straw in every beverage I drink. (hot or cold.) I ’steal’ them from every where they have straws on display, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, ect..my glove compartment is filled with them.]

3. I Am Very Shy/Reserved/Quiet When I Am In A New Environment

4. I Collect Fairies & Dragonfly Objects

5. I Am Still Scared Of The Dark

[I have to fall asleep with the TV on at night because having a nightlight is ridiculous at my age.]

6. The Tattoo On My Right Buttox Cheek Says: Little Miss Nasty

[Thus, I will never drink tequila again.]

7. I Learn All My Lessons In Life The Hard Way

[I have never been able to ‘learn from others mistakes’. I learn from my own HANDS ON experience. When I do fuck-up, or make a mistake, I fuck-up BIG TIME. However, once I do learn my lesson, I never have to repeat the same mistake.]


And Fourth, but not least, I was given this award by a new blog buddy Diamond from My Pretty Pink Blogette

  • Girl, if I weighed 108 pounds (as I did in my twenties) I wouldn’t complain about a blessed thing. I’m older now, and slightly larger, and (I hope) a little wiser! But then, I have a wonderful true love, a treasure for which I am very thankful. I pray you find yours (or he finds you) in 2009. And I pray the same for both of my un-attached grown daughters! Merry Christmas to you and your son.

  • Meleah

    Oh no. I would freak out if someone used my favorite glass. I *heart* mason jars as cups. That plumber sounds like a real d-bag!

    Im not complaining about being 108. But. Im 108 because I am starving.
    Yes please PRAY for me to find & have The Perfect Man enter my life.
