Blog-Tag: A Game For a Virtual Meet-n-Greet

As a blogger, people may know you, but how good does anyone really know you? Turns out, I've been invited to play a game of Blog-Tag! My good blog-buddy Becky Oehlers tagged me, so click on over to her blog-palace and be inspired by her papercrafts, or her professional singing, or her golden sense of humor. She's a boatload of fun! For those of you who just landed here from there, welcome to my creative blog where I ramble and rant and rave about my papercraft obsession. But wait, I don't stop rambling there ... oooooh noooo. My other blog "Dream Big" is where I ramble and rant and rave about my life and what's in my head. Pick your poison!

Okay, then ... seven random or weird facts about myself:
  • My dad karate-chopped me in the hallway in the middle of the night while I was on a trip to the bathroom --- he thought I was a burglar. I do not think that gave him a license to karate chop, however, the sound effect was pretty awesome.
  • My husband lost his checkbook on the day of our wedding. I don't care what you say, he was not scared of me! We met at work, he fired a guy and I worked in personnel {The cute night shift foreman meets cute little number in the office}. We met and married within 4 months.
  • Fav Quote: From birth to age 18, a girl needs good parents. From 18-35 she needs good looks. From 35-55 she needs a good personality, and from 55 on she needs cash.
  • My rented min-van was stolen while vacationing in San Diego, along with my mother's wheelchair, my scrapbook, and my sisters' wine from the Sonoma Valley. Cops said it was over the border within 10 minutes. Bet they enjoyed that ride!
  • I went to college in Ann Arbor, Michigan and studied music. Then went to work in a law firm for the next 25 years.
  • I'm pretty much a perfectionist - but a recovering perfectionist so that has to count for something. I clean and straighten and organize and detail everything that moves. I'm one of those "if you can't do it right, don't do it" people. Go ahead, roll your eyes. I'm cleaning the fuzz out of the laptop keys as you read this ...
  • It's all about my hair. I cannot function without lipstick and hand creme. And a purse that is a small piece of luggage.
Okay, Becky actually gave me a blog-tag choice but I like the questions on the second round too, so I'll play along!

Things I love: Jesus, my family, San Francisco, scarves, scrapbook stores, hanging with the hood (neighbors), purses, cold weather, TV show-Sisters & Brothers.

Things I don't love: Dark country roads, sushi, mornings, clutter, cop and reality tv shows, negative-talk.

Songs on my IPod: Sing-songy songs, mostly from TV commercials: Regina Spektor, Lenka, Kate Nash, Priscilla Ahn, Katie Herzig, Jack Johnson, Ingrid Michaelson, Sondre Lerche and various christian artists.

Favorite Food or Drink: Salmon, Salad, soup in bread bowls, Paradise Cafe Gingerbread Cookies. Must have Diet Coke ... must have Diet Coke.

Now the FUNNEST part ... tag, you're it!

Thanks Kay! I've received several of these in the past and am so appreciative every time it happens - not sure people want to know one more thing about me LOL! but we'll give it a go!!!

My prayers are with you during your son's recovery. It brings back memories of 9 years ago when I got a similar phone call - my then 22 year old son - stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC in the Army - had been shot in the face by a civilian in a robbery. (wrong place wrong time) - and God saved him I too flew to his side and stayed during his operations - he is now out of the military on full disability - is blind in one eye with an unremoveable bullet next to his spinal chord but pretty much 'normal' other than memory issues and headaches.... Thank you God. So I wish you God's strength and love in nursing your son back to a full life!

How fun to be tagged by you, Kay! I am enjoying your blog, and it turns out we have some things in common. I am NOT a morning person, either. I can't stand clutter, and I LOVE salad. Thanks for the tag!
