My first meme. I have to tell you lovies, I hope I can come up with 8 things about you don't already know...
First, I need to give you the legalities. Can't have anyone suing me over this. So pardon me while I get all Moses on you and lay down the law:
The Rules:
1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts. (I told you!)
2. I then have to come up with eight random facts/habits about me.
3. At the end of my post I need to choose people to get tagged and list their names.
4. I am supposed to remember to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read my blog.

Now with the fine print aside I get to go on about myself...(in fact, I used to think that is why they were called memes but sigh I was wrong.) Oh prepare yourselves hearts of mine, this is going to be... something, I don't know what. I will let you think of a word...

#8. I like burned popcorn. No, no, I lerve burned popcorn. The way it smells, the way it tastes. In fact I often burn it on purpose. I'm sure there is a dietitian/nutritionist somewhere shaking their head thinking the poor girl has a vitamin x deficiency. That's okay hon....I'll just get it from the popcorn.

#7. I was a vegetarian for about 4 years. Hard core. I would even take my own serving of food to church dinners because I was very sure there would not be a vegetable in the place that wasn't deep fried in animal fat as well as no edible protein. I cannot tell you why it started. It's not like I felt sorry for the animals...I just couldn't take the sight, smell or taste of any kind of animal product. Oh but I fell folks, right off the vegetable day, I went to a barbecue and I was never the same again. I was on the back porch, and an evil wind brought to me a smell so delicious...tempting me to turn, calling me taste, beckoning me to run away with it. And I did. And it tasted so good. I am not ashamed people.

#6. I hate to be tickled. It makes me violently angry. I think it has something to do with the fact that my much older sister and brother once tickled me till I cried and wet myself and then made fun of me. It just makes me feel so helpless.

#5. When I was young I wanted to be a nun. Perhaps it was the outfit or maybe because of the show at the time "The Flying Nun" made it look so appealing. I have no clue....I cannot repeat what Mother Dearest (not a nun) told me I would miss out on if I became one. It's probably good I didn't...

#4. I was a hooker for about 2 years. Now slow down peeps, slow down. I worked for a company called Bill Lewis Lures in Louisiana and I was responsible for putting the hooks on the lures. I also painted lures for about a year but it was much more fun being a hooker.

#3. I don't like odd numbers of things. When I grocery shop if you get 3 for a dollar I will buy 4. Weird I know...

#2. I am addicted to Diet Coke. Diet Crack I call it. I drink about a gallon or so a day. When I was having heart problems I stopped for all of 2 weeks and got right back on the bottle. My favorite is with crushed ice and from a fountain. Dang I'm feending...

#1. I am weird about my feet. I don't like them to be touched by anyone or anything. I wear mostly sandals or flip flops and would rather be barefoot all the time (yes then the floor is touching them, but for some reason that does not bother me). I've only had one pedicure in my life and while it was really rather nice I had to control the urge to scream bloody murder during the whole thing.

Okay. I did it! Woo hoo!!!! Now, I am going to tag some people...
First Flamin' Larry
Second Meg
Third Dr. Bombay
Fourth Mrs. Rosen

Tag you're it!!!

    Burnt popcorn? Oh, that's just nasty- I got rid of a microwave 'cause the smell wouldn't go away :P
    I'm with you on the tickling (disguised torture) thinking about being a nun (Sally Fields was just so darn cute, & Carlos- muy caliente!) & disliking odd numbered things.
    From nuns to hookers- your's is a strange lifepath, chica ;)
