The 7 things meme

December 3, 2009

Little Miss Moneybags tagged me forever ago and it’s taken this long to come up with seven things I haven’t already shared. And then Rina of Gotta Little Space tagged me, too, but you’ll forgive me if I don’t double up on the work. 

The Rules:
1. Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
2. Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
3. Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

What you shouldn’t know about me:

1. I want food I don’t already have. There’s a sweet spot between wanting and having a snack in which it’s delicious, but it’s a very small window. This is how Oreos last as long as they do in my house. It’s also why I don’t buy potato chips. I’d never finish the bag before it went stale.
2. I’m a one-trip shopper: Everything has to be unloaded from the car in one go.  Once I’m in the house, I’m not coming back out.  [Except when it’s nearly impossible but it’s always too late to change my mind.  Like the one time I bought 20 pounds of pork ribs and 20 pounds of chicken. In hindsight, that was just flat out dumb.]
3. I just yelled “LIFESTYLE INFLATION!!” at a 19-year-old contemplating an iPhone vs. Palm. 
4. I’m related to crazy people who think that ionized water is a cure-all.  This makes me sad. Then kind of mad.
5. In my head, dresses should always be step-in-able.  That over-the-head business just doesn’t jive with me. Also, when tailored to fit and both zippers and buttons are involved, I often have trouble getting dressed.
6. It seems like the above incompetency should be mentioned to all mothers who ask me to babysit their darlings. It frequently isn’t.
7. But I still do remarkably well babysitting the under-3 age group.  Performance drops slightly around bedtime prep, but the number of diapers I’ve changed should more than offset that loss.

Alright darlins, please tag yourselves because you’re going to hurt my feelings if you don’t follow through and I’m going to hurt yours if I didn’t pick you.   And let me know so I can link back to you!  🙂

  1. I would fill this out but I can’t imagine wtf people don’t already know about me …

    most people know I don’t drink alcohol (a glass once a year at best, i just hate the taste of it), I don’t smoke, I’ve never done illegal drugs, I don’t drink coffee (get horribly sick), and….. i hate licorice.

    that’s it. all food/drugs/food related. LOL

    FB, no coffee? Can’t imagine.

    Revanche, what was the look you recieved back from the 19 year old??

    And I like #5, totally agree

    I hate pullover dresses with a passion, too. Should be illegal.

  4. SS4BC says:

    LOL I love that you yelled at the 19-year old. PRICELESS!

  5. Kathleen says:

    I almost laughed out loud when I read that you have relatives that believe ionized water is a cure-all. My parents and some of our extended family also believed that for a while…it was quite annoying.

    And nice for yelling at the 19-year-old. Best to school them while they’re young and impressionable!

    @FB: Hahah, one track minds, we’ve got. I tried to keep off the food thing at least for half of it. Otherwise the list would go on forever.

    @MoneyFunk: I’m a no-coffee-ite, too. Love the scent, can’t stand the taste.

    The look? Mostly surprise. I shouted really loud.

    @eemusings: THANK you!

    @SS4BC: I have PF Tourette’s.

    @Kathleen: You too??? And they stopped? What brought them to see the light?

    Hehe, I think I mostly scared the kid. You know, the “inch away from the crazy” reaction?
