I was tagged (catching up)

So, I was tagged by Debbie at GittinItOuttaMyHead. Thanks Debbie!

What do you normally do in a situation like this? Do you respond right away with random useless facts about yourself? Do you procrastinate (like Debbie) and then provide random facts about yourself? Or do you think and think and think and try to come up with something funny and witty? Well, lets see what I come up with.

The rules are:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. done

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. done

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Not gonna do it. Everyone I know has already been tagged. I will reserve my 7 tags for another time. Maybe when I make more friends ;-)

4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Random Facts About Me

1. I was born at 7 months and weighed 4lbs. Went home after 2 weeks in the hospital.

2. I had my first paid babysitting job at 5 years old. My mom was actually supposed to watch him but he would have nothing to do with her and only wanted me. When they came to pick him up they handed my mom the money and she told them that I did all the work.

3. When we lived in Hawaii I walked off a pier and almost drowned. 2 High School boys dove in (I still see them like torpedo's on either side of me) and saved me. I guess that is why I do not know how to swim.

4. I do not eat any vegetable except lettuce, raw carrots, raw celery and corn. But I have always encouraged my daughter to eat hers. Now she is happier eating veggies than any meat.

5. I have 4 tattoos. A rose on my left shoulder blade that has my daughters name in the stem. A butterfly on my chest, a koala bear and the word Aussie on my right calf and the kanji symbols for Ryobukai on my left calf. Shay and I got the Koala bear together after my mother passed away. Ryobukai is my karate organization and when I received my black belt I got the tattoo.

6. I eat a Lean Cusine Pizza for lunch just about every day. (it is easy and quick and does not taste that bad) Or like today, I have a pizza pocket.

7. I like to sing karaoke. I even have a personal system with a bunch of music that is sorted and cataloged. Anyone ready for a party?

Love the list EXCEPT for the pizza part. I had one the other day and it tasted like vomit!!!

That was very interesting...I love finding out things about my friends. But nothing there that we could use as blackmail, we need more indepth answers!! Just kidding, have a great weekend.

Lisa J said...

Well I have not done my "tagging" answers yet, and I have Crazy Eights to do from Mental P Mamma. I am just not good at those things. You need to teach me how to link everyone.
Well, raining here again, and I am going to go to Wal-mart to pick up some 4th of July party stuff. I want the red/white/blue theme. So I am going shopping....somewhere.
talk to you soon.

Thanks for coming by my blog and commenting. My name (Shay) is actually short for Shalagh (shay-la). I have been spelling it my whole and pronouncing it for everyone - NOT so fun. so I started to go by Shay

shay said...

sorry. I didn't notice Iwas signed in as my son. I'm Shay not isaac:)

Debbie said...

You! Have tatoos? Okay, this one surprised me and the Black Belt in Karate! Wow. I'm impressed.

That's sad about the pier thing and of course scary! So that did you in for swimming, I'm sure..gosh!

You done good girl!! So, I hear you been cleaning...why did you want to go and do that? After my 24 hours at the lake, I feel like I cleaned 4 houses. I think I'm having culture shock!

Thank you for all your sweet rock!! And you just keep impressing me with your blog changes! WTG...just takes time playing around LOL

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Why arent you blogging? I am managing to find the time so you should too!!

Hallie :)

Debbie said...

I think hubby should let you go see old friends!!! Just go! go! go! I'm sure your brother misses you and would love to see you LOL!

The lake is near Charlotte, NC. Come any time! Bring food hahaha!

A post...let me you met hubby? um...all the things you want to catch up with when he's gone? Hobbies, fun things you'd like to do? Heck, I can't even think of something for me to post right now LOL.

We did have fun, but I still have that THING in the back of my mind coming up soon. I try not to dwell on it or I'll go crazy.

Hey..isn't Shay coming home this week? Yeah!!!!!

Those are great oddities! I have a tatoo too, on my shoulder of a butterfly landing on a flower. Crazy kids will get anything tatooed on themselves. I have thought about getting something that has meaning, who knows. Anyway, thanks, I feel like I know you better now.
