oops she did it again

Love Your Neighbor

When you're tagged and you know it...say...something random. Tangobaby hit me up with this folks.

Legal verbage that everyone says:

1. Link to the person who tagged you. (done.)
2. Post the rules on your blog. (Here they are.)
3. Write six random things about yourself. (see below)
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them. (ehhh, so I broke the rules here)
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog. (N/A)
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up. (done)

so....let's get it started in here
1. I think in song lyrics or movie quotes more often than not. Usually no one really gets most of why I'm saying when I do that outloud. They stare, I look away - it gets awkward. Which makes me feel geeky. So I compensate usually by not saying much sometimes. Better quiet than proved an idiot.

2. I hate mustard - I meant really loathe it. If I can taste mustard on something, I will stop eating it. And same goes for raw onions - except they really make me sick. But...weirdly, I love caramelized onions or onion rings. *shrugs* There is a method to my madness, I swear.

3. I collect all of my hotel key cards and keep them in a basket. I especially love the Hampton Inn cards that show what state you visited. I also love the photography at Hampton Inn. I hope someone got paid for that.

4. I read the last Harry Potter book in one seating - I was exhausted and my eyes hurt for hours after I finished. Not just from reading, but I admit - I cried too. It was hard to say goodbye to characters I've loved and, it was a series that my nephew and I read together. We loved talking about the books when he was younger - I think he's outgrown that for a while...but at least he still loves to read.

5. I usually do not discuss religion or politics with anyone except very close friends. I find that people are so passionate about their beliefs that it just causes too much tension. I actually lost a friend when I told her "we will just have to agree to disagree" when we didn't see eye to eye on an election. She has never spoken to me since. I'm not a judgemental person and will defend anyone's right to say what they believe in - I hope they will give me the same curtesy.

6. I seem to be a magnet for red traffic signals - I guarantee that I will be stopped at each light in a string - unless of course I'm trying to put on lipstick or write a check. Then I will be on the neverending green light stream until I give up. Then, back with the red.

Ack! Does anyone want to participate? If so, consider yourself "tagged." Otherwise, back to your regular programming.


  1. :)
    i've done this one a time or two myself.

    but i enjoy reading as many as i find.

    i just can not believe you read that whole book in one sitting. it would literally take me years to finish that book. i've seen how thick it is. i think you get the prize for Most Difficult Feat Accomplished!

    i so identify with number 6. i used to have a commute where i had to go through 35 stop lights. (i counted) there were days when i swear i would get every single red light! it's quite annoying when the world does not open all the doors in your path, isn't it?

  2. you hit the nail on the head with the stop light thing! it's always about us when we're driving, right?

  3. I don't do song lyrics often (I've never been good with memorizing songs, even the ones I like) but movie quotes, God, that's a daily occurrence.

    Thank goodness The Boy and I are the same on that because sometimes we're the only two people in the world that understand what we're saying.

    And NO mustard? Not even Dijon? Dijon...that's like a whole other world of condiment. I make this fantastic cream sauce for chicken with tarragon dijon mustard and I swear you would like it.

  4. Seriously, I do the exact same thing with song lyrics and movie quotes! Except I usually just say whatever and let people think I'm nuts!

  5. my comment is on your #1. . . . never silence yourself. just look back at them like . . . "what? look it up"

  6. I totally agree with #s 5 and 6! My husband's family has very widely differing opinions on politics and they always argue during the holidays. I stay out of it because I know I'm not going to sway anyone's way of thinking in a 30-minute argument, not that I want or need to, anyhow.

  7. wandered over from tangobaby. love your #4. while i didn't read it in one sitting (i was on a train to ljubljana and there were others in the compartment, so i had to turn out the light), i also cried and realized that the series as a whole really was well planned out from the beginning. it's brilliant.

    love your photos too, but TB said i would. :-)


i feel as if each comment was between us as we sat and sipped something warm....i love to hear what you're thinking.
