Got tagged, twice which was funny, because I’d been thinking of answers to this meme – then got tagged and promptly forgot about all the genius things I’d thought of to say.
Here are the rules:
1 – Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2 – Share seven random and/or weird things about yourself.
3 – Tag seven 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.
1. The two blogs I have read all of the archives on are Pioneer Woman and A Little Pregnant
2. My shoe size is 9.5 – 10. I adore shoes, but have gotten practical (ahem: boring) and don’t buy many. Which isn’t to say I don’t want to. I do. Very, very much.
3. People who comment on my blog get put in my reader. You read me, I will read you. Just something to think about all you lurky lurkers out there. Seriously, say hello. I won’t bite. Unless you are covered in Thanksgiving leftovers.
4. I don’t know how to pray the Anglican/Episcopal rosary, but I really want one of these.
5. If money were no object, our house would be decorated in Arts and Crafts style – probably with furniture from here.
6. My grandma is 94 years old today. She’s a little weak, and her hearing … well, let’s just say the fire alarm went off one year and she thought it was her hearing aid squealing. Otherwise, the woman is amazingly healthy.
7. NaBloMe month has started to take its toll on me. I’m running out of ideas. I need ya’ll to ask me questions or give me some idea of what you want to read. I need you, gentle reader.
I’m tagging all the preppy girls:
1. Mary Alice – aka Bootsy
2. Magpie – aka Cricket
3. Jackie – aka Topsy
4. Flutter – aka Tibby
5. Arkie Mama – aka Mimi
6. Slouching Mom – aka Cece
7. Lotus – aka Bootsy
Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog so soon after I posted it. I really needed to read something like that tonight. I also like the link to Ask Moxie you left and am browsing through it now.
I’m with you about shoes. Love them but being much more practical these days. After all, where am I going with a 1 yr old in tow?
1. Happy Birthday, Grandma!
2. Never give in to wearing boring shoes.
3. Topic: Discuss union labor, particularly regarding the writer’s strike, and how it’s effect on your television viewing.
4. The rosary… what are your favorite colors? (email me)
NaBloMe month is getting to me too….maybe I’ll break out the camera and just post more photos this weekend….
My grandfather died about 5 year ago at 101 years old – I loved him very much and he was in pretty good health when he passed away. Hope you have a good Thanksgiving, Dawn – see you soon. Kellan
The Arts and Crafts item reminds me of all those 1940s romance novels I used to read featuring nobly impoverished families whose purity and good taste is reflected in their furniture: a few good, though shabby, pieces, as opposed to the flashy new furniture of their rich but shallow rivals. Those shabby, good furniture items would probably cost a fortune today in an antique store – we can’t afford to be nobly impoverished anymore these days.
Somebody’s going to get a lovely rosary! They really are beautiful.
Pioneer woman is awesome. She has the best photos…so much so that her food shots actually make me feel like I just ate.
That’s a big foot, lady. I’m a shoe-whore, too. My feet have stayed just a little bigger than they used to be before I was pregnant – about half a size. Not much, but enough that almost none of my 1,329,297 pairs of shoes no longer fit me. I had to donate practically all of them to Good Will. Now I NEED TO GO SHOE SHOPPING B/C I FEEL NAKED. 😀
And, as you know, my meme’s up. Here’s a little shameless self-promotion of it:
Tagged Like Gangbusters
Uh, no longer should be deleted. Heh.
I have read A Little Pregnant’s full archive too.
Shoes? Meh, I can never afford new shoes, but I still love to drool over them. I have sneakers, sandals and a pair of slut boots and that is my full shoe wardrobe. Oh and a pair of blundstones from when I was working.
Thanksgiving leftovers? Yum.
Happy Birthday Grandma!
I want an Episcopal rosary too. And, okay don’t turn green or anything…but…I have an Amish made Arts and Craft living room set. I saved for eons to get it and I love, love, love it.
NaBloPoMo is taking its toll on me, too. Here’s something I always ask when the conversation lulls at parties: So, what are you reading these days? Anything good?
I have not only read Pioneer Woman’s archives, but omigod — the recipes.
I made her grilled cheese sandwich one night and … bliss. Absolute bliss. It is my goal to win one of those caption contests.
As for shoes — I used to scout & buy. Now, I seem to be wearing all last season’s. (OK, actually, a few pairs are several years old. *cringe*)
Oh, and another thing — how many totally hawt relatives/friends/cowboys does Pioneer Woman see on a day-to-day basis?
If that’s the kind of scenery you get on the freaking prairie, count me in!
I totally understand #7. I think all the turkey shut down the part of my brain that does actual THINKING. Hopefully I’ll be back on my game on Monday.
I’ll never forget the first time I read ALL of the archives of a blog..it was my early days. I read Kim at my 10 kid family..her link is on my blog..she doesn’t blog so much anymore but she has some of the funniest shit I’ve ever read. I too have read all of Ree’s posts…the funniest are about her retarded brother Mike.
PS..I just KNEW you would be watching that game tonight!! PS..your live traffic feed reads St Louis when I’m home in St Louis and Fenton when I’m at work in Maryland Heights, how gay is that?
A size 9.5? I thought you where a petitie.
