I'm It

I don't usually blog on weekends, but Bobbi got me, and, given how the level of readership on this blog, if I don't tag fast, everybody else will get tagged by someone else before I get there.

This is the 7 random things meme. Here are mine.

1) I have never read anything only once.

2) I laugh out loud at the Marx Brothers and W.C. Field's, but wouldn't give the time of day to Spanky and Our Gang or the Three Stooges.

3) I am provincially, pathologically, Midwestern. Marc and I lived in northern California (otherwise known as God's Country) while he was in law school, and I missed flat land, tall buildings, and people who thought "getting their head together" should be done during free time.

4) My favorite color is red, yet I own almost no red clothes.

5) I have a way with plants - none of them survive.

6) My taste in music could best be described as eclectic. I'm a card-carrying member of 98.7/WFMT's 5:58 Club, yet when I finally got an iPod this year, the first thing I downloaded was Utah Phillips' greatest hit from his album, "Good, Though."

7) Okay, I'm struggling here. Umm. I've attempted to help organize chaos in the form of the local 4th of July Parade since I was pregnant with John (well, someone has to). That's good. Besides, it means I can add picture.

Tagged are Diane, Shelly, Jess, AmyArtisan. I'd tag Deb, but she just got tagged for 8 random things, so to follow up with 7 more seems harsh. Darn, that's only four. Okay, Kathleen, that's 5. Luni and Kristina, that's 6 and 7 (and boy, I bet they wish they had waited to leave a comment).

So, for their sakes, here are the rules:

List 7 random things about yourself.
Tag 7 others.
Leave a comment on their blog to direct them to your site to get the rules.

This isn't one of the rules, but I'm pretty sure there are no "tag-backs".


Kathleen said...

I only followed part of the rules! :) But I did respond.

Kristina said...

Thanks... I think... (agh! ;-) ).

Would you believe I don't actually *know* 7 people with blogs? I'll have to figure this one out...

It may take me a while, but I'll do it (when back at work on Tuesday, no doubt). ;-)



Kristina said...

Julie, it's done as I got stubborn: check out my blog post 20 May (the top post). ;-)

And - thanks ever so for (inadverently) educating me on how to put links into my comments. There is always a silver lining...

Now, back to knitting ;-)


Bobbi said...

I didn't realize you're in the Midwest. I am too!

AmyArtisan said...

Gee - thanks for the tag ;) I've incorporated it into the post I was planning for this weekend & it's now up there. :)

Shelly said...

That was fun. I don't actually know 7 people with blogs either, but I did my best.

Jess said...

Utah Phillips - we've always told his "Moose Turd Pie" story in our family and I assumed someone in the family had made it up. Imagine my surprise when my uncle mentioned going to see this guy and talked about the story in question.

I didn't make as much of a fool of myself as the day I discovered that "Dead Skunk" really is a real song and not something that my mom's family made up. That was embarrassing.

Well, I've been tagged by at least 3 people now. Guess I should think about this one.
