Tag Me, Baby!

I've been tagged by Allie and it couldn't have come at a better time as I was drawing a big nothing when I sat down to do blog posts this week. Here are 10 random facts about moi:

1. I find things innapropriately funny. Like when people fall down. My kids included.

2. I have trouble spelling certain words with repeating consonants. I always repeat the wrong one and have to correct. Like dissapoint disappoint. This annoys my friend Jeniffer Jennifer.

3. I've always wanted to belong to a huge family with tons of brothers and sisters that are forever in each other's business. 

4. Midgets, Dwarves, Little people freak me out. If they 're wearing clown make-up, even worse. I had a bad experience at the circus once. 

5. I eat my M&Ms two at a time by color and find it very disturbing when someone just rams assorted colors in their mouth at the same time.

6. I dropped out of college my Junior year to get married (although I'm single now). I've thought about going back and finishing, but I haven't convinced myself that it would be worth my time at this point in my life.

7. While I was married, I hardly ever read a book. After the divorce, paranormal romance got me back into reading, JR Ward's Black Daggar Brotherhood to be exact. These days I read what I write, YA.

8. I once lost a pet in a lawnmower accident. My dad ran over my hermit crab, Hermie (original, I know) when I was eight.

9. There are certain movies that the family and I watch on a regular basis: Galaxy Quest, So I Married An Axe Murderer, Haunted Honeymoon, Clue and Arachnophobia.

10. I love lists!

Now I would like to tag five of my new Campaign buddies. You should definitely check out their wonderful blogs. These ladies ROCK!

See you all back here on Thursday!

CLUE! I love it. One of my very favorites!

Lori M. Lee said...

I'm an only child and totally relate to #3. Also, I love Clue, totally forgot about Haunted Honeymoon (have seen it lots) and also love So I married an axe murderer! GREAT LIST. And so impressed by all the cute tag pictures people used for these posts! christy

Well, Lisa, you have a great random list! I related to a few of your mentions...I'm laughing out loud as I'm sitting in my office.
(Blushes...then forgets about it and laughs) I have laughed when my kids have fallen down, too.
I have four brothers and four sisters. We are all in one another's business. I think it's a good time. It is also, however, a pain in the honey-buns - as with that many siblings, someone is always getting their hair up over something. (She's bossy. He shouldn't have bought that car. So & so never called me. Who told Mommy about - insert infamous brother's name here - citation/love-child/fender-bender/make up your own funny example...)

Oh, and I'm glad to see so many people share my Yul Brynner love...lol.

Have a great week, Lisa. ~ Nadja

Claire Lachance said...

Clowns freak me out too, LOL!

erica and christy said...

Christy beat me here (sometimes our multiple personality disorder works that way) (kidding - we are two different people!)

#2 - is it suppossed? supposed? supossed? Stupid double consonants.

#5 - just today I was in the office of a collegue when she offered me some Skittles (a perk of working in an elementary school). I picked 2 purples. Because really, who mixes them?

**Wait, I was going to comment on #6 about hour I married the guy I met sophomore year, but then the song whose name I don't know but whose lyrics say "You're so vain. You probably thing this song is about you." started.

So, yeah, good post. :)

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww poor Hermie!! Awwwww!!! That would traumatise me no end!

Glad I'm not the only one who laughs at the most inappropriate of places too!

Congrats with your award!

Take care

Jennifer Groepl said...

Very entertaining list! Thanks for sharing. I'm one of those people who just throws the M&Ms in randomly, and my name is Jennifer. Can we still be friends? :)

Carol Riggs said...

Congrats for being tagged, and it was fun to learn those random things about you! haha, I eat M&Ms by color too. We are organized people, yep!

Jodi Su said...

Thanks for the tag! I am with you on #3!!!! :)

Erica, that is Carly Simon's YOU'RE SO VAIN...

Hi, Lisa,

Fun bits about you. Tagging is supposed to be a fun experience.

As for #6, do it for you. Would you enjoy going back to classes, meeting younger students, and learning new things?

I'd say it would be a fun new adventure. If I had the time I go back for my Masters. I love being surrounded by fun, bubbling, intelligent, and youthful people. They haven't been branded my life's knocks yet. I love the sparkle in their eyes. Life is just starting for them and it's nice to see that innocence and excitement brewing and waiting to flow out.

Janet Johnson said...

I love lists, too. Something about them makes my inner OCD happy. ;)

Crystal said...

Okay, who doesn't find people falling down funny? Well, unless you're the one actually falling, that is... And I am ECSTATIC to meet a fellow BDB fan!!! Which one's your fave? Mine's Rhage... :-D

Laura Marcella said...

Hi, Lisa! I'm over here from Crystal's blog. I giggled when I read your #1 because I'm the same way! I find it hilarious when people fall down, including myself. As long as the person isn't hurt, of course!

May Hermie rest in peace! :)
