Another Meme!!!!

I was tagged by DragonLady. Click here to visit her. She is funny and foul mouthed- she's great!! She has a couple of kids and she served in the Air Force for 8 years. She pretty much stays non political, but I know which side of the fence she is on.... so she is aces in my book.... besides I suspect she could probably kick my butt...

And since Scootertrash Hubby is still sleeping... I figured... why not... why not do this stupid meme.... no where to freaking go since it is snowing again!!

.:: Brief interruption - Coffee required to focus on Meme ::.

Anyway, here are the game rules:

Each player starts with posting 6 weird things about themselves. Persons/blogs who get tagged should write something of their own and state the rules clearly on their respective blog. Then select an additional 6 bloggers to be tagged and list their names. Leave a comment that says you have been tagged in their comments section and hope they don’t hate you after tagging them.

All right... I could cheat... I did a meme similar to this one way back here, but I have so many issues that there really isn't a need for me to recycle "weird" things about my own person... If you don't feel like clicking back...

6 Weird Habits... from a December 2005 Meme....

#1 I ramble. See above. (some things never change)

#2 I burp loudly whenever or where ever the urge hits me.... Michael always follows it up with, "Better?.... My delicate flower?" Michael is so proud...

#3 I get sayings wrong... For instance... "A watched pot boils eventually" ... or "A shut mouth gathers no food" ... or "Count your chickens before they hatch"... Nice, huh?

#4 I have conversations with my cats... When Michael is out and about and it is just the cats and me... I will talk to them... and sometimes they talk to me..................................... I'm serious.

#5 I love to swear... Four letter words are not only a habit... it's a hobby...This is an awful awful awful thing... I really have to keep it in check at work... in front of children... here...

#bonus I love to use ".............................." a lot.


OK... NOW ...

DragonLady's 6 Weird Things

1. My biggest fear is falling UP stairs-- The thought of hitting my chin and cracking my front teeth just flips me out. I'm much more cognizant walking up stairs than walking down stairs... in fact... I've fallen down our stairs of our house many times... thank goodness for carpet...

2. I love making lists. I have lists for everything... I used to keep a Franklin planner back in my "career" days, but then moved to Outlook.... I love the task list... but I find it satisfying to hand write "to do" lists and use a highlighter when a task has been completed. If the list gets messy, I will rewrite it... leaving the things already accomplished on there... just so I can highlight them... again...

3. I am also a freak about organizing things. Everything must have a place and everything must be in it's place. Media organized- alphabetically and then by release date- I.E. The Police- left to right Synchronicity 1983, Ghosts in the Machine 1981, Zenyatta Mondatta 1980, Regatta de Blanc 1979, and Outlandos d'Amour 1978. With that said, things don't stay organized... why? because I have a husband that is anti-organized... [sigh]

.:: Scootertrash hubby is now awake and suggested ::.

4. I have inherited from my mother the wonderful ability to answer a question that was not asked. (This is the example Michael always sights)
Cathy: Mom, what kind of crackers are these? They are really good!
Cathy's Mother: Deese is ex-SPEN-sive crackahs!

5. I have selective hearing... if I am watching television or in front of this computer... won't hear ya if you are talking to me...

6. I can fall asleep anywhere at anytime.... except when I need to sleep....

Now... who to tag... first paybacks are really important to cover....

SeeJaneMom - Jane in her early days of blogging sent a lovely little Christmas meme
Drunken Wisdom - That 1 Guy sent me a picture meme
The Trouble With Angels - Potentially, 2 for the price of one--- Diane and Mel. Diane sent the music meme...
Peakah's Provocations - Josh sent me the weird habits meme... Although he is on a break... thought I'd leave him a note for when he returns...

Now for those that have send me traffic...

Dakota Ranger - I love those forums you belong to!
Laura's Miscellaneous Musings - She is so smart and thoughtful and nice!

And now for those that are highly unlikely to do this meme but I want to show my undying affection....

Scootertrash Conservative
Beware the Dark Side

Yes. I am fully aware this is more than 6, but I anticipate at best only 4 playing.... enjoy!

Falling UP stairs. OMG, it's not just me. LOL Though, up, down, doesn't matter. I'm gonna fall. :-)

Hmm, it has been a while since I dropped a political post. With the 08 elections starting to gear up, you'll see 'em. ;-)

Hmm... What can I say? :)

Cathy, I'm blushing! Thank you so *very* much for your kind words.

This one is hard...one or two of my "weird things" I already listed on the last "meme" I did -- such as always reading the last page of a book first. :)

Like DragonLady, I'm a listmaker! I even make lists for leisure time -- like the next 100 or so movies I'd like to watch, and then I have fun crossing them off and feeling a sense of "accomplishment."

LOL!

Happy President's Day! Best wishes,
Laura
