I never could run very fast…

I have been contemplating starting my own blog for some time. After all, everyone I know has one. And goodness knows I spend enough time on theirs to give me some kind of blog cred at this point. But I have so many things on my plate I just kept putting it off. The fact that I’m a master procrastinator probably helped.

But no longer. I have been tagged (and not in that good way) and therefore thrust into finally putting on my big girl pants (or pull up) and diving in. So without further ado, here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2.People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here are my eight random facts. Enjoy!

1. I am attempting to write a book but in all honesty I have no freakin’ idea what I’m doing and I highly doubt all the money I am spending to figure out what I’m doing will all be for naught.

2. I will be 36 this year and admit it’s freaking me out to get closer to 40.

3. Here’s the TMI fact: I have a large mole above my hairline. Not that hairline…

4. I am not nearly as smart and witty as some people think I am but I am smarter and wittier than some give me credit for.

5. I would have my upper arms lypod (sp?) in a heartbeat.

6. My hair is not naturally red. Big shocker I know…

7. I once stood up Cledus T. Judd by going home instead of going out drinking.

8. One of my favorite foods in the world is raw hot dogs.

Whew! That was hard. My 8 people are: Fran, Maggie, Tessa, Kelly, Tiff, Santa, Deborah, and Christie.

  1. Woohoo, Terrio! Welcome to the blogosphere. Popping virtual champagne corks and sending virtual hugs and kisses. Not sure if I can do 8 things since my computer is pretty iffy right now, but 8 IS my lucky number, as I blogged this week!

  7. YAY! Welcome to the blogosphere chica!

  8. terrio says:

    You know, Santa, the rules are pretty clear. Looks like you need to start a blog. You could share it with your Deli Thugs. That might be fun.

    Or if you want, you can just put some fun facts in here. I’m waiting for you to finally admit you have reindeer….LOL!

    Thanks for the welcome, Kelly. I feel like I just jumped into the deep end without a life vest!

    Phew! I forgot where I put my list of Eight Random Things, so here they are:

    1. My name really is Santa. Really.
    (no reindeer, sorry!)

    2. I can write legibly in block and cursive lettering in any direction: backwards, upside down, sideways, right to left and, of course, left to right.

    3. I got in trouble in the 3rd grade for spitting at DR – hey, he got me mad.

    4. I can’t drive over a bridge I’ve never been on before – vertigo hits and it’s white knuckle time.

    5. I’m a Leo. My husband’s a Capricorn. I have no idea what that means.

    6. I learned to lindy, foxtrot and waltz watching Bobby and Cindy on The Lawrence Welk Show.

    7. I remember seeing ‘The Sound of Music’ at Radio City Music Hall but I also remember when JFK was shot. I was only three months old at the time, so maybe I remember Robert Kennedy being shot and maybe it wasn’t Radio City Music Hall after all but the movie theatre on Rockaway Blvd. in Queens.

    8. I was born in Italy and came to the US when I was two months old. I automatically became a US citizen when my parents did.

    Terri, love your Vagabond sketch!

    Your husband must be really cool. All of us Caps are. *g* I really need to thank Aza somewhere for that wonderful gypsy sketch she did for me. I probably should have asked her permission to put it up here but you know, easier to ask for forgiveness and all that.

    So I state hear that all credit and thanks goes to Azalea for turning me into a beautiful gypsy. I can only dream that I actually looked like that. The original is framed and on my desk at home. Next to my Ellora’s Cave Calendar, it’s my second best form of inspiration. *g*

    Yeah, my husband thinks he’s pretty cool too.*rolls eyes*

    Hey Terri,

    Welcome to Blogdom! I actually have a blog too, but it is for work training and all I do is complain about the lousy training and why is this useful. Anyway I just wanted to say hi.

  14. terrio says:

    *waving furiously to Beth*

    Hi there. Thanks for stopping by. Hope your lousy training and things in general *g* get better. Soon.

  15. Azalea says:

    Hey chickie!

    I gave that pic to you, hon, so use it however you wish! thanks for the nod though ;D

    *sigh* I once had my own blog… couldn’t keep up. *sniffle* I can barely keep up over on the RV…LOL
