Seven Random Things Meme

Rachel, a funny, local unschooler with an amazing cat who I recently met here tagged me for this.

Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you.
2. Post these rules on your blog.
3. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself
4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

I'll be brief, I hope, since I did this one about six months ago and how many wierd/random things can you bear?

Here are 7 more, briefly:

1. When I was a kid, I used to torment myself over which Q-Tip to release from the glass jar where my mother kept them. I was freeing one from it's prison. I had a vivid imagination, clearly, and must have thought my ear wax was pretty brilliant.

2. When my boys put on the song "Roses are Red" by Aqua, I dance all over the furniture with them. I also danced all over the furniture, actually doing grand leaps from furniture on one side of the room to the couch on the far side, when the Red Sox won the World Series three years ago. The kids were speechless. This past season's win, I was more contained.

3. I love peanut butter, mayonnaise and banana sandwiches.

4. I used to direct plays at a theater in Atlanta that my brother and I started and he ran, called "Barking Dog Theater".

5. I was a shoe model, years ago in New York, but not for long. You had to wear a size 6 shoe and I was a 7. My bunioned, dancer feet (now they are bunion and corn free and completely out of shape) could only bear that for so long.

6. I have a grandmother that won't talk to me. We have not seen one another since she and my mother became estranged when I was seven. I am in contact with her sister who arranges for her to send me some money every few years (like now, for Australia - huge help) but I would much rather have her in my life. I keep trying. Now, she is starting to develop dementia so I could possibly visit without her knowing who I am.

7. I love to play with numbers in my head - creating patterns. Like right now, I am about to turn 44 and Nicolas is turning 40 on the 4th of January so I am playing with 4s. We have all kinds of 11s in our family when you use numerology to find "our" numbers. I don't go any further with this, it's meaningless number doodling. I do get a bit into the meaning of astrology, especially seeing how much kids resemble their signs.

Wierd enough for you? I was also tagged for a meme by Schuyler so will have lots of people to tag this week. Beware...

For this random/wierd things meme, I tag:

1. Jessica at Joyfully learning
2. Schuyler (HA!) at Warts and all
3. Mindy at Dancing Chickens
4. Abbi at Exactly Abigail
5. Rue (who probably won't do it but I'll try anyway ; ) at Another Roadside Attraction
6. Tamar at Only Connect
7. Rachel at almost always hungry

I am hoping that some of you read here and get your tag as I have to go do a delivery and can't play tag until late tonight. I'm actually going out tonight with local good friends! I'm looking forward to a girls' night.


Rue said...

Why wouldn't I do it?! I don't think I'll have any trouble coming up with weird things about myself *G*.

~Rue, still reading every day :o)

~Abbi~ said...

Well, I'm with you on the number thing. :) This isn't said in my "weird facts" post that I just got done with a few minutes ago, but I'm obsessed with repeated numbers. 111, 222, 333, 444, and the like. I also like figuring out patterns with them, so all of what you were saying makes sense in this kook's head! (Unfortunately, I'm not sure how much that's sayin to you, or whether it's a good thing! ;) )

I love peanut butter, mayonaise and pickle sandwiches!

Alecto said...

I love peanut butter and Kraft Miracle Whip sandwiches. Oh, please don't tell.

Kimba said...

I have to chime in on the peanut butter, banana and mayo sandwich -- oh how I <3 them!

Sorry you couldn't make the party -- you were missed. We did enjoy Jesse, though, tell him "Thank You" for us!

Since you tagged me, I have gone through phases: feeling honored/loved/even intriguing or tantalizing! I got carried away with glee. Then, doing the meme thing (is it really, ME ME, as one of my fellow tagees wondered?) started to weigh increasingly heavier on my brain, soul, modesty-shyness. Today, I confess that me can't do meme, not in the blogosphere. Yet let us pull up some chairs or just sit directly on your FLOR... and I'll meme away the livelong day... and night. Raving on seven times seven about random weird and weirder things about me. I know you will forgive and accept these, my flaws and limitations (I only wish these were the weirdest things about me). xoxo
