Need a fun break? Fill in this Meme!

  • Nataly mentioned in one of her posts that she'd been "Memed" recently, and that got me thinking... what a fun way to get to know one another a little better! So, if you have a few minutes and feel so inclined, share 7 random facts about yourself here.

    1.) I can't sleep without covers. Even on really hot days, I have to have a sheet over me.

    2.) I went to the same school from Kindergarten all the way through 12th grade.

    3.) I hate drinking milk. Even calcium-fortified OJ tastes funny to me.

    4.) I love keys. I used to have a ton of them on my keychain until I heard it was bad for my car's ignition.

    5.) I always thought that I'd work while my husband stayed home. Sometimes, I still think that should be the way to go for our family.

    6.) Dolls -- especially "realistic" looking ones and baby dolls -- have always felt creepy to me. I was totally a stuffed-animal kid.

    7.) I used to write truly awful angst-filled poetry. Sometimes, to vent, I still do. Makes me cringe to read it, though.

    And... tag! You’re it!

  • Funny - I'm actually doing this meme on my blog later this week, but I've already got the post drafted, so I'm going to use it here too.

    As it turns out, there's a thread connecting the facts I'm sharing here, so they're really not totally random.

    1) I was born on Easter Sunday.

    2) I was born on my mother's 34th birthday.

    3) I got my horrible eyesight from my mother; my vision can't be corrected with LASIK, since it's beyond the reach of the instruments.

    4) I got my love of reading from my mother too, which may not really help with the horrible eyesight...

    5) I got my Italian heritage through my mother; my father's family was from what used to be known as Austria-Hungary.

    6) My food preferences definitely are influenced by the Italian heritage - I'm a pasta-holic.

    7) I have never been to any of the countries that my ancestors came from.

    Lylah - Your #1 and #3 facts are both true for me too!

    So, who's next?

  • I don't believe I have done a meme in ages.

    1). I love dance, especially Ballet.

    2). I coached Cheerleading at the high school level for exactly one year... NEVER AGAIN!

    3.) I always wanted 6 kids... I have four + plus one sister/kid.

    4.) I've lived domestic violence, I am a survivor... not a victim.

    5.) I CAN'T drink milk... its like toxin to my system, but I LOVE ice cream.

    6.) I collect Barbie's.

    7.) I love high heels, especially red ones.

    Hmmmm... seems to be kind of a girly theme here!

    7) I love big dogs, but never realize how big they are until I see someone who is intimidated by them. I grew up with a doberman, and now have a rhodesian ridgeback.

  • This is fun reading!

    MaryP - I didn't believe in soulmates before my second husband either. I'm still not sure I do, but at least I'm more open to the possibility now.

    Mamajama - My in-laws had a Rhodesian Ridgeback for years; according to my mother-in-law, he was the Best Dog Ever. He passed away before my husband and I met, and his parents never got another dog afterwards.
