My first game of tag.....

::sniff:: this reminds me of my childhood ~~ I *loved* to play tag :)

Now I'm playing grown-up tag! I was tagged by Lacey Stephens. I've only had my blog a few months, so this is my first game of tag :) Here are the rules, copied from her blog:

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Gotta warn ya ~~ I'm not that exciting!!!

1. I am deathly afraid of heights, & I am deathly afraid of flying. However, my fear of flying does not come from my fear of heights. The one time I did fly (honeymoon) I had no problem looking out the window ~ I found it fascinating. For me, it's a fear of crashing. I know, it's safer than driving. But you can survive a car crash ~~ I'm proof!! ~~ but how many people survive a plane crash?

2. I was born in Orlando, Florida. I now live in Wisconsin. That's right ~ we moved FROM Florida TO Wisconsin ~~ who does that?? My parents have a picture of the sign "Future home of Walt Disney World". I will never get to go to Disney World. See #1. It's a loooong drive!

3. I write with my right hand, but I do almost everything else with my left. I count money, deal cards, vacuum, & sometimes even stamp with my left hand. I don't think that makes me ambidextrous, because I think that means you can do everything with either hand. I definitely can't write with my left. My son, on the other hand, writes with his left hand, & does most everything else with his right.

4. I'm an only child. I hate it. I've always hated it. I always begged my parents for a brother or sister. Little did I know that my dad was "fixed" shortly after I was born ~ no siblings for me :(

5. I was in choir for many years, & even played the piano for a few, but I canNOT sing worth a darn!! Is singing something that can be learned, or do you have to be born with that talent??

6. Ok, this isn't about me, really ~ but it's interesting. My uncle used to be a professor at Harvard. He had Matt Damon in his class. Matt started writing "Good Will Hunting" as a short story for his class. My uncle raved about it, & encouraged him to keep going with it. We all know where he went with the story! He has mentioned my uncle by name many times in interviews.

7. I have a bit of OCD. Ok, more than a bit. I do weird things like check my coffeemaker 16 times to make sure I unplugged it before I leave the house. I check to make sure the garage door is shut at least 5 times every night before bed. I always have to know exactly where my cats are before I leave the house. And don't even ask me how many times I check to make sure my curling iron is unplugged, even though I have the kind that auto shuts off after 30 minutes.

There ya go ~~~ weird & not-so-interesting facts about me. Don't you feel a little closer to me now? I need to tag 7 people so here's my list:


These ladies all have fantastic blogs, so go check them out!!

I'm actually glad Lacey tagged me, it gave me something to post today!! I only made one card over the weekend & it's a secret......shhhhhh........I will be able to show you in a few weeks! This weekend was a busy one ~~ we spent Saturday with my mom, & Sunday I spent most of the day outside doing fall clean up & trying to take care of my sick hubby. He has what sounds like pneumonia ~~ just add it to the list of things making him miserable. He goes for another consult next week with yet another surgeon ~~ hopefully this will be the one!!!

Have a great Monday!!

Michelle wow, I find all you said really facinating! I'm with you on flying, just not my fav thing to do. And singing, I'd LOVE to do that too. That's so cool about your uncle knowing Matt Damon! So many interesting facts...and eek you tagged me, I'll try and think of something and post later...warning, BORING! :)

Rhonda said...

I thought your facts were very interesting, Michelle! It was fun to learn more about you!

Crissy Armstrong said...

You ARE a fascinating person Michelle! Thanks for sharing!~

Dianne said...

Michelle, How fun to know such cool things about you!!! I am like your son and am left handed and do a lot right handed. Strange how that all is! Love the story about your uncle and Matt Damon!! Very cool indeed.... I hate flying but not because of the fear of crashing, it's the fear of throwing up :)
Can't wait to see your card!
Good thoughts and prayers to your hubby. He has really had a time.
