7 Weird or Random Things About You Meme

Jenn at Jenn's Den has tagged me for this meme.

Here are the meme rules:

1- Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2- Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself.
3- Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4- Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here goes with 7 things about ME:

1. My favourite soft toy as a child was named "Doggy Pussy". I was obviously a rather confused child with a severe lack of creativity or ability when it came to naming my toys. LOL. He was a very faithful friend though and has absorbed truck loads of tears in his (and my) lifetime. I still have him. He lost his nose and both arms have been resewn a number of times. The fur is almost thread-bare. But he has pride of place stuffed in the bottom of my wardrobe somewhere! :-/

2. I eat chicken chips (the "Arnott's" or "Smiths" kind that is - some of you may call them crisps) with ice cream. Yeah, I know it sounds disgusting but you have to TRY it before you ditch the idea. Don't ask me why but the two go together quite well. It has become a favourite Friday night dessert in our house. It took my DH a LONG time to convince me to try it but once I did - I was hooked.

3. I have a tendency to end up in the middle of a circle of people. Someone in high school pointed this out to me. I'm still not sure if it's because I like being the centre of attention or because I'm so short that everyone can just speak over the top of my head!

4. When my first child was born I made a conscious decision that I wanted to see him laugh at least once every day of their life. Not sure exactly where that came from or if it's even a reasonable goal to have. That particular child is actually growing up to be quite a comedian and has the ability to make people laugh - what a gift!

5. I hate those hard 100s and 1000s on fairy bread (I like the soft "dollar sweets" or whatever they're called) but still like freckles (they're a chocolate covered with the hard round 100s and 1000s). In fact, I'm eating some right now (which is why I thought of this).

6. My favourite movie is "Pretty Woman" which I find rather strange given that I don't agree with prostitution. My favourite part is where Vivien returns to Rodeo Drive with her hands full of packages to say "BIG mistake" to the stuck up boutique that refused to serve her because of the outfit she'd been wearing. I don't like the attitude that having money makes you a better person.

7. My favourite number is the number 7!

So there you have it. Some a definitely weird. Some are just random. I'll let you decide for yourself which are the weird ones. LOL.

Now for the hardest part, who do I tag? I know I've seen this meme on some other blogs so if I tag you and you've already done it, just let me know.

YOU (if you'd like to participate and haven't yet been tagged - please consider yourself tagged and let me know and I'll add your link here too! :-) )

The Spouse has chicken chips sandwiches *shudder*

cheers Kim


Jodi ... I learned 8 things about you here. 8 things that I didn't know. 1-7 are obvious because you told us. But number 8 is hidden. I saw it when I saw my name at the bottom of your list. Number 8 is that you are honery :) tagging me.

Would you believe that I have been tagged twice in the past few months? Does that count for this tag or does it mean I have to re-do the tag again? Give me a ruling and I'll get back to you.

Here is the previous two (just so you'll believe me) ...

Thanks for the tag. I forgot to do this today. I usually chime in on the IN OTHER WORDS loop. And I've already been tagged for this one. I could do it again though. And add 7 more weird things. Not sure I will get to this until Thursday. I have an article deadline.

Thank you for thinking of me though.

Hi-I have tagged you for a Christmas Meme. It's a lot of fun. Come to my blog and see it. Rose

Ali - glad you enjoyed.

Kim - chicken chip sandwiches! Yum!!!!

Trey - help me out here...what does honery mean? I looked it up in my dictionary and online and I'm still none the wiser. LOL. If it's a bad thing you'd better not tell me! LOL! I'll just stay "in the dark". :-) No, you don't have to do it again. That's always a risk when you play "Tag". It's hard to remember who has and hasn't done these things. And I try to spread things around a bit as a way of showing off to my readers what other blogs I frequent. :-)

Tiffany - I'll leave it up to your whether you want to do it again or not. I don't mind if you don't. :)

Rose - thank you. I will come get. :)

I knew there was a reason why I was hanging on to the other 7 tags for this meme *snort* waiting for you my lovely Lightening...

I think all seven could be rounded into my blog post tonight!

Will do it soon. I promise!
