Never been tagged for a meme before (GAWD, I'm green). I was tagged for this one by Mango Marie. There were originally two options. Marie picked one, but I'm lame and absent of any original ideas tonight, so I thought I'd bore all y'all with both. So here goes:
Rules for Meme #1
1. Link to your tagger and post rules. 2. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random and some weird. 3. Tag 7 people at the end of post and list their names. 4. Let them know they were tagged by a comment on their blog
1- I want an iPhone in the worst way, but ... um ... dollars are not allocated for that.
2- I wanted to be a teacher when I was younger. In fact, I was trying to write the application essay explaining why I wanted to go to education school when I realized I couldn't think of a single reason.
3- I don't have the cleaning gene.
4- I absolutely hate "I Love Lucy." I can't stand knowing that she's gonna get in trouble and have some 'splaining to do. It gives me the total ootchies to watch it all unfold.
5- I believe ice cream (especially coffee ice cream) is the perfect food, even more perfect than chocolate.
6- I once covered a women's boxing bout for a newspaper.
7- One of my favorite dinners is actually breakfast.

Ah, yes, meme heaven, eh? Don't you feel better for having read this crappola? Don't you feel we've bonded now? So... I'm not going to tag anyone in particular. If you want to play, you can pick one or do both and leave me a note.
I'll be here waiting.
