8 Random Facts

It's a gullywasher ya'll! The heavens have opened up over Frog Pond Holler and there are massive quantities of the wet stuff being dumped from one end of town to the other.

Storms excite me. I'm weird that way.

Anywho, Last week I was tagged by Dixie with a wicked cool Wikipedia meme then today by Terri over at Terri Terri Quite Contrary with the "8 Random Facts" meme. Lets see what I can come up with, kay?

1. Post these rules before you give you the facts.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. At the end of your post, choose (tag) eight people and list their names (linking to them).
4. Leave them a comment on their blog letting them know they’ve been tagged!

8 Random Facts About Me

  1. I attended preschool at Cinderella School. No seriously, that's what it was called. I've still got my diploma around here somewhere. Lulu takes great pleasure in telling people I went to charm school for kindergartners, but it didn't "take".
  2. I'd give my eye teeth for a piece of Pollard's Chicken. It was right across the street from Cinderella School and had a ginormous rooster statue on the roof which was easily seen from the playground. I wonder if that has anything to do with my fear of chickens? They had these fried biscuit things served with honey too. Dang, now I'm homesick.
  3. I am not really a panda. I am however, just as cute and cuddly.
  4. I stepped in some glass when I was three and ended up with "blood poisoning." I can remember being in the hospital and screaming whenever I saw a nurse because I'd had so many shots. They eventually did surgery to remove the glass, which they never found.
  5. When I was about ten, I sat down on one of those playground merry-go-rounds just as someone was turning it. A large splinter went in behind my knee, which landed me in the doctor's office. Apparently the splinter was laying against an artery, which meant I had to be hospitalized again. I had more surgeries for dumb crap by the time I reached puberty than most people have in a life time.
  6. I'm allergic to pet dander (current head count: three dogs, two cats and a cockatiel)
  7. I'd like to find the person who created the new "Viva Viagra" commercial and b*tch slap them upside the head. Blasphemers!
  8. I really want a Slurpee. Why aren't there any 7-Eleven stores in this Gawd forsaken state?

I’m tagging: Idgie, poopie, AC, Tori, Melissa, Lisa, Kenju, and Meritt.

Well, thanks, Mahala, I think. Do you really think there are eight things I haven't already told? LOL
I think not, but I'll see what I can dig up!

Melissa said...

What do you mean that you're not really a panda? I feel like I did when I found out that there is not really a Lake Wobegon. :)

AC said...

Thanks from me too, Mahala! Most facts about me are random, certainly many are contradictory and/or disconnected...I'll give this some thought while I'm out today and get it done asap.

Oh Melissa.. I um.. that was a JOKE!!! You know me, always with the haha. I really am a big, cuddly panda. That's why I have so many typos, No fingers.
