Another tag or two

I was tagged by Biddie AND Lori to participate in the 8 random facts about me MEME. I hope this doesn't mean I need to double up on my facts -- because I'm having a hard enough time coming up with 8!!!

Each player should post these rules first.

Each blogger lists 8 random facts about themselves or their habits. At the end of their list should be the people who they are tagging! Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that you have tagged them.

Here are my 8 Things:

  1. I have a HUGE crush on Mike Rowe from Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs. His blue eyes. His hairy chest. His sense of humor. His voice... OMG his voice. Just the entire man-ness about him. I lust him. I really do. Carl knows I like him, but if he knew how much I would probably never be allowed to watch the show again. He makes my knees weak.

  2. I am fascinated - almost to the point of obsession - with the paranormal. Those of you that read my blog know my best friend from high school has been haunting me and my son for years. I'm not afraid of him at all. I would LOVE to go on a ghost expedition with the TAPS gang (from Ghost Hunters) or Ghost Hounds here in GA. I would probably show my chicken ass if something were to happen though. I would love to give it a shot!

  3. I'm an ex-smoker. I started at 13 when my cousin gave me my first cigarette. Then I smoked on and off until 3 years ago. I quit 6 months before my surgery because I thought "why do I want to spend this much money to get healthy only to die of lung cancer!" There are times, though, that I would kill for one!

  4. My chin is fake. I had oral surgery when I was 22 to help with TMJ. My upper jaw and lower jaw were cut apart and realigned... and my surgeon placed a metal plate in my chin to give it more definition. You would never know that unless you knew me in high school. And, no, the metal detectors at the airport do not go off when I pass through them.

  5. I had no intention of going to college after high school. My mom "encouraged" me to go. I flunked my first semester so bad the college said I had to make a 2.5 to stay. (My GPA was a .88; I kid you not). I made a 2.49 and they still asked me to leave. Bastards. I showed them though. I graduated from another college and, eventually, went back and got a Master's degree. To all of you parents out there with struggling college kids... there is hope.

  6. I am an impulsive shopper. Big time! This usually happens around books or music. If I see something that looks good or interesting, I get it. Then I spend a couple of hours justifying my purchase.

  7. My dream job is to be a DJ at a radio station. I think that would be a blast!

  8. I've been told my southern accent is sexy. I don't hear it, but I've been told it is pretty thick. I try not to sound so country... but get me pissed off or excited and it goes off the chart!

Done. Phew!

I don't know who to tag.... hmmmm....

  • CindyDianne - because I'm hoping this will make you happy
  • KB - because you are new and we need to get to know you
  • Chelene - because I love hearing about you!

That's all I can think of for now. If you decide to do it, let me know so I can come read them. I'm nosy, too!


Biddie said...

Those are grerat facts! I LOVE your southern accent!
I am completely fascinated with teh paranormal, too. I am also being haunted, but I wouldn't mind if my ghosties went away!
And Mike Rowe?

Beth said...

Did you know Mike Rowe is also an opera singer (or was), I believe with San Francisco's opera company. He also does the Sunday home sales show in Baltimore (his hometown); Francesco and I watched it while we were in Charm City last November.

Marni said...

Beth: I did know that... he also was a sales person on QVC for a while. I can pick his voice out on any of his commercials... He is so. freakin. sexy!

Beth said...

Yes, yes he is.

BTW, which cousin got you smoking?

Marni said...

From mom's side... Laura.

her indoors said...

i love the paranormal too, but no way would i go on a 'ghost hunt', would be too scared!
well done for quiting

CindyDianne said...

Oh, another 8 random facts. hmmm....I'll have to think about that for a day or two.

I didn't notice you accent being "too" thick. Of course, you have to look at who is saying that in this case.

Mike Rowe is super sexy. I agree totally.

Bubs said...

Very cool random assortment. My youngest is a huge fan of all the paranormal shows and has turned me into a casual fan of TAPS, and that other one with the goofy Brits.

Marni said...

Bubs: That would be Most Haunted and yes, I watch it, too!

chelene said...

I would love to be a DJ too, but it would have to be on satellite so I could swear occasionally.

Oh, and I'm done! :)

I'll answer your meme challenge, but it'll have to wait until later in the week. Kinda overwhelmed at work (when I'm not taking pictures of naked mannequins).

I think it's time for your first podcast so we can hear this sexy voice of yours.
