Tag, I'm it

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.

Meme #2 - 4 Questions & Answers
4 jobs you've had:
1- Secretary (for a transmission company)
2- Just about everything at a newspaper (reporter, editor, designer) except photographer ... though I did take photos for one of my own stories once.
3- A Gymboree teacher (yes, really -- and a damned good one too!)
4- A "fitness technician" at Curves.

4 movies I could watch over and over
1- Gone With the Wind
2- Dirty Dancing (swoon)
3- the original Star Wars trilogy
4- hmmm, not sure if I have a fourth

4 tv shoes I watch
1- House
2- Grey's Anatomy
3- Desperate Housewives
4- any CSI but Miami

4 places I've lived
1- Philadelphia
2- Los Angeles
3- Chicago
4- Santa Barbara, Ca.

4 favorite foods
1- Ice cream
2- Linguine with fresh spinach and mushroom and GARLIC
3- Chicken with pan-fried noodles
4- Cocoa Krispies :-)

4 favorite colors
1- Purple
2- Blue
3- Pink
4- Green

4 places I'd love to be right now
1- Tahiti (my dream vacation)
2- Hawaii
3- London
4- An Alaskan cruise

4 names I love but could/would not use for my children
1- Jordana
2- Tessa
3- I don't have any others to offer ...
4- because I already named four kids. I used up all the ones I liked anyway!

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.

>>Linguine with fresh spinach and mushroom and GARLIC<<
Made me instantly hungry! Mmm.

Oh, and I hate "I Love Lucy" too!

Jenni said...

I love/hate "I Love Lucy". I love the era and all the old styles, but she's pretty annoying.

So, what is it about CSI Miami? Don't you love all of Horatio's fatherly wisdom? Does it seem to you that he has some kind of god complex? I mean, why is Mr. CSI always the one taking the shot that gets the bad guy and saves some innocent victim? He drives me nuts, but he's so ridiculous it makes me laugh, too. How does he have time to go to every funeral and get so personally involved in everyone's lives and still do all the major aspects of the casework anyway? How many children is he unofficial guardian for now? I love all the CSIs but the original is my fave.

There was more, but you distracted me with CSI:o)

Mango Marie said...

OOOHHH, now I'm hungry!

Great meme...thanks for playing along!

~JJ! said...

I lack the cleaning gene too...

And I am a teacher...and my essay wasn't all that long either...

cate said...

great memes! i'm right there with ya on the iPhone. i want one soooo bad. but apparently we need appliances for or new house more...pshaw! who needs a stove anyway???? ;-)

Phoenix said...

I am so with you on the iPhone. I covet one in the worst way. In a, I really want to steal one way, but I won't because I've never stolen anything. :)

I'm with you on CSI Miami. I love the original and New York though.

Also, I love both of the names you listed.

Willowtree said...

Ah yes, who can forget their first meme.

Carolie said...

Oh my...maybe we're related? Your movie list? Identical to mine. Coffee ice cream? Food of the gods. And "I Love Lucy"? Makes my stomach hurt to watch her...I die of embarrassment from shows of that ilk!

And "Horatio" on CSI Miami, with his sincere, squint-eyed, melodramatic promises to little children and sexy babes that he'll "take care of" them...he PROMISES...well, BARF.

And I've lived in three of the four places you listed. So, obviously, we must be related. Especially with that "lack of a cleaning gene."
