I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by Jacquie over at The Middle of Eleven. Jacquie is one of the sweetest blog friends I have. We have actually exchanged email addresses and email each other frequently. We hope to meet on one of my trips to see my daughter.

Anyhow, I'm supposed to share eight random things about myself and tag eight people. Most everyone I blog with has already been tagged. So feel free to play along. Here goes......

1. I have used the same brand mascara since I was sixteen and started wearing makeup. Most things in life change. Not my GREAT LASH mascara by Maybelline. No sir ree. This baby has always looked exactly like this (well the top was a little sleeker than the bottom). It's always come in these cute colors of hot pink and lime green. In high school I wore the blue. That's right, I had blue eyelashes. HA!!! I've grown up now dadgummit and brownish black seems to be the choice these days!

2. I LOVE tablelamps. As soon as I walk into our house I turn on most all the lamps. I love the warm inviting touch it adds to our home.

3. I do not like scary movies. If I HAVE to go I sit there with my hands over my face peeping through my fingers. It never fails I always scream out loud like an idiot and pee my pants at least once during the film!

4. Mince meat pies send my gag reflex into full motion.

5. I'm not a breakfast food eater. But I can eat cold sour kraut straight out of the fridge first thing in the morning. When I was home, momma always wanted us kids to have breakfast before school, well I just couldn't eat breakfast food. Momma would ask what she could fix me and I would always say a "cheeseburger". You guessed it, momma always fixed me a cheeseburger. Thanks Mom!!!

6. I don't get British humor. I've tried. Just don't!

7. My hair has NEVER looked like this, because my hair has NEVER, EVER been longer than my shoulders. I'm just a short haircut kinda gal!8. I used to be TERRIFIED to fly!!!! There. I said it! I'm fifty-five years old. I have been a flight attendant for five years. So basically, I was terrified for fifty years. WOW!!! That just seems weird doesn't it. How did I get over it you ask! All it takes is for your daughter to try it, like it and tell you over and over, "mom, you should try this, remember mom, planes don't just fall out of the sky"! So here I am loving every minute of something I used to be terrified of doing!!!

I also love table lamps and hate scary movies. Only in blog land could those two thing be in the same sentence.

I wish I could be a short hair kind of lady. You lucky girl!

I like the warm glow of a table lamp also. I hate to fly, hate scary movies, always have used Cover Girl mascara and love breakfast foods any time of the day!

These are fun to read.

I wore blue mascara in 8th grade, I think. I drive Dave crazy because I dislike overhead lighting and I always turn our living room lights out and just use the lamps. (I love my Christmas tree for the extra "ambience"!) I don't do scary ANYTHING, nor do I eat mince meat pie or kraut. I don't guess I really watch British humor. I do wish I had that girl's hair - always wanted long, STRAIGHT hair. And I'm TERRIFIED of flying!! I can't believe you used to be afraid of flying.

PS - I got the CUTEST Christmas photo card in the mail today from a sweet friend!!!

I'm with you on the mascara...I buy expensive cosmetics for the rest of my face...but I stick with good old great lash for my lashes! I loved this post...its so fun to get to know our bloggy friends better!

Well I don't remember anything about cheeseburgers or you eating kraut out of the jar. Very interesting.

That was so much fun! I didn't know you became a flight attendant at 50!!?? Wow-that's inspiring!! :) I love to fly. Getting there fast is the only way to go!

And I LOVE table lamps, too. That warm light is so cozy.

I'm with you...I'm not a big breakfast food fan. I can't believe your mom would make you a cheeseburger! haha...that's a good mom!

BTW-I read on Judy's blog that you have been sick. I have been praying for you and I hope you're feeling better!!

Well, I agree with you on so many things. For one thing, I love Lamps also. I have six lamps in my bedroom!

I have never liked mince meat pie because what in the dickens is mince meat anyway??

I had long hair in college but have had short hair for years and I could never go back!!

The only time I really like breakfast food is if I am at Mimi's Cafe!
