A Game Of Tag

I loved playing tag as a kid.  As an adult, I just don’t have the energy.  Though, there are times that the thought of chasing someone around to try and catch them is appealing… Sadly, that is discouraged.  What isn’t however are these cheeky little games of the adult version of tag, a sort of getting to know you game, that I was sucked into thanks to Jess at The Cranky Yankee.
There are rules, of course!
1. Post the rules (check)
2. Share 11 random things about yourself (this should be interesting…)
3. Answer the questions posted to you from your tagger (this is going to make my brain hurt)
4. Come up with 11 new questions for the people you tag (somebody find the Advil)
5. Tag on Twitter, Facebook, your blog (but don’t tag me again)
 11 Random Facts About Me –
1. I am legally blind in my right eye.
2. I have 5 younger siblings, 3 girls and 2 boys, the youngest of which is 5 months younger than my daughter.
3. I got married at 18 and celebrated my 12th wedding anniversary last August.
4. I’ve never been out of the continental 48 states.
5. I am afraid of worms.  They completely gross me out.
6. I never really cared for sweets until I was pregnant with my daughter.
7. I am a K-Cup hoarder.  TLC could do a special on me.
8. I love anything 15th and 16th century, especially all things dealing with the royalty in England.  I blame HBO and The Tudors.
9. I skipped Spanish and French in school and took Latin.  A dead language.  I’m not sure what I was thinking.
10. I could watch Bring It On over, and over, and over again.  I actually made my husband stop on ESPN 2 yesterday when I saw a cheer competition on.
11. I never cared for sushi until I was pregnant and couldn’t have it.  Then I craved it.  The whole time.  With my son, as soon as I had him, I called in my order to friends who were ready and waiting to deliver sushi to me in the hospital.  And, in case you don’t believe me, see below… Be kind.  I had been in labor for 11 hours.
The questions posed by The Cranky Yankee –
1. Who is one person you’d like to have a cocktail with (living or dead)? Anne Boleyn (see above for my fascination with the Tudors)
2. You’re being sent to an Island.  You can only take 3 things.  What are they? (food and drink are provided) On my island, we have a broadband connection, so I’m taking my laptop.  I’d also like my tool kit and probably a wagon to carry all of my stuff around in.
3. Favorite book ever.  The one you go back to over and over again? This is an easy one… Flowers in the Attic.  I am a huge V.C. Andrews fan.
4. One piece or two? Two piece, but a tankini.  I haven’t gone bikini since childbirth.
5. You’ve joined the circus as….? Animal trainer.  I love animals.
6. Dog, cat, reptile, fish, none? We have two toy poodles.  I’d love to have a cat, but my husband is very, very allergic.
7. Favorite blog? Ooh, that’s a hard one.  One of the first blogs I ever read, and still read, is No Time For Flash Cards.  Allison really inspired me to do more with my kids, to teach them with their hands rather than a book.
8. What’s your click and stop movie?  The movie that no matter what channel you catch it on, you’ll watch?  See the aforementioned Bring It On.  Clueless is a close second.
9. One thing you wish you had in your house (money is no object)? An office.  A private, just for me space.  I work from home 3 days a week and it sure would be nice to leave my stuff scatter as I please and just close a door.
10. Slippers, fuzzy socks, or shoes in the house? I’m a country girl and barefoot all the way.  If I can figure out how to be barefoot in the office, I will.  If bare feet aren’t an option, my first choice will be flip flops.
11. Tell me one good thing about today so far. I finally got both of the kids registered for summer camp!
So, the tagging and the interrogation – 
Mandi @ Southern Gnome, Marina @ Miss Marina Star, The Daydreaming Fool, Crystal @ Spoiled Much, Leslie @ Chips Off The Old Block, Kelley @ Forever’s Like A Dream, Jody @ The Days Go On, Jessica @ Begin To Craft, Susie @ Motherhoot, and… ok, so not quite eleven.  Oh, well.
1. What your earliest childhood memory?  It can be good or bad, just the first thing you remember about your life.
2. Toilet paper – Over or Under?
3. Decorative bathroom towels – Wipe your hands on them or wipe your hands on your pants?
4. You’re forced to move to a foreign country.  Where do you move and why?
5. Facebook – Friend everyone or only true friends?
6. Summer, Winter, Spring or Fall?  Which is your favorite season and why?
7. Do you have a home phone or are you a cell phone only family?
8. The Price Is Right or Jerry Springer?  Which are you watching?
9. What is something you’re afraid of? (heights, spiders, etc)
10. Chips or Cookies?
11. Is it soda or is it pop?
I feel free to play along!  If you do, please let me know and I’ll add your link here.
