I’ve been TAGGED!

I was tagged by Steph Corwin, whose blog I have recently started reading and am very surprised and excited to see that she is reading mine as well. So, YAY!!
Here are the rules:

  • Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
  • Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
  • Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here we go…

1.  I sleep with my feet out of the covers. And I can’t tuck the sheet in at the bottom because then my feet can’t stick out and I feel like I’m suffocating.  Even if I’m freezing, I’ll still fall asleep with my feet OUTSIDE of all the covers only to wake up in the middle of the night and find two blocks of ice have encased my feet and then I put them under Will’s legs to warm them.  Then they go back outside the blankets and I fall back asleep.  Sleep with socks on?? FORGET IT!  My Mom told me once when I was little that if I fell asleep with socks on then little elves would come steal them.(I think she didn’t want to have to search for missing socks in the blankets)  I think that is why I now sleep with my feet outside of all the covers so that those little sock-stealing elves don’t have to make the trip to see if I’m wearing them, they can see from across the room or where ever they sneak in from.   Some people in my family refer to it as “Cannon feet” because My Grandmother used to do it and My Mom does it too. Or maybe the elves used to steal theirs too.

2.  I have to see the steps as I’m walking down stairs.  I don’t know exactly what will happen if I’m not watching them, but I have a suspicion that it wouldn’t be good and possibly could be painful for me.

3.  I have to shower at night before I go to bed.  I am not a morning person AT ALL and want to sleep as late as possible and showering takes up valuable sleep time.  Plus, I have this thing that I MUST BE CLEAN when I get into bed.  Even if I did NOTHING all day long, I’ll still feel dirty at the end of the day and feel like I need a shower to get into bed.  I think that this stems from when I was in high school and living with my parents, my second job was at a place called Schlotzsky’s Deli and when closing a restaurant, you get sweaty.  Well, my parents bedroom shared a wall with our shower and it would wake up my parents if I tried to shower, so I’d have to shower in the morning after the other 3 members of my family so I’d almost always get the cold water.  Sometimes I’d drive down the street to where Will lived with his parents and use their shower and then go home and sleep.  Weird, huh? 

4. This one is about Me AND Will.  We have been best friends since 1998ish.  He and I started working at the Schlotzsky’s Deli in Peachtree City, GA where I was his boss until they opened a new store that I managed and Will got promoted to manager at that store.  We were best friends all through high school and college and even moved in together as roommates in 2001.  Then we both got new jobs at South Fulton Medical Center where he was MY boss for a couple of years and then we moved out into our own places,drifted apart a little bit, and then became best friends again in 2006.  He went with Me and My family to the Bahamas on our family vacation that July and by that November, we were dating.  Now, he’s stuck with me.

5.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my all time favorite television show.  I own all the season on DVD and Will actually downloaded a program that allows us to download all the comics, so I’ve been reading those as well.  Why, yes, I am a huge dork.

6.  My big toe on my left foot pops constantly.  I jammed it when I was younger at this dam that my parents took me to so that they could go fishing (boring!!) and I fell climbing some huge rocks and jammed the hell out of it.  I also lost a jacket and a huge box of Garbage Pail Kids Cards that day.  Damn Rocks!!  So, now I feel this pressure build in it and I must pop it. 

7.  I am like a hairless wonder.  I have virtually no body hair that you can see.  My arms look like I wax them, but all my hair is really babyfine and blonde so it looks like peach fuzz in the light.  My eyebrows have to be penciled in  so you can see them and I only have to shave under my arms or my legs about once a month and even that is pushing it.   Even the hair on my head is super-fine.  I have A LOT of it, it’s just really thin and fine.  I’m not complaining or anything, but people tell me I’m a freak of nature.  Although as I’m getting older, I’m finding that I’m getting a few stray hairs in strange places.  I have one on the left side of my face that I just discovered this year (in horror) and wondered how long it had been there (how could it have been there long enough to get THAT long and I never noticed it??  Did this monster just pop up overnight?!?) and how many people had been having conversations with me JUST STARING AT IT in horror themselves and unable to tell me.  So, now i obsessively check for it everyday when I put on my makeup.

So, there you have it folks.  I’m now going to tag 7 people who’s blogs I read and they will hopefully participate.  Here goes:

1.  First up is Nik because I read her blog everyday and I think she is hilarious and could totally see myself hanging out with her in real life and having a great time.

2.  Second is Wishcake.  I just recently stumbled across her blog and it has become a part of my daily reading because she is so darn cute.  I love that she writes such personal stories that I can relate to completely.

3.  Third is Sheila.  I have been reading her blog for about a month now, and she never fails to crack me up with her stories of being a doggie-parent like Me.

4.  Fourth is Amanda.  Another blog I stumbled across about a month ago and reading about her pregancy seems to quiet my baby fever, but only a tiny bit.

5.  Fifth is Sallad. She is a Georiga Girl (like yours truly) and her crafts and photography are very cute.  I started reading her blog after seeing her Exposaroonie submissions.

6.  Sixth is FeatherNester whose blog I love reading because she is so honest about what is going on with her and I appreciate how hard that can be sometimes.  Plus, I’ve been a lurker on her page and it’s high time to introduce myself, sort of.

7.  Finally is Christina.  I know she just did something similiar about a month ago, but here is my de-lurking on her blog as well.  Plus, her photography is amazing.

I hope everyone enjoys and checks out all of these amazing blogs.

    I have to look at the steps when I’m walking down them too. My boyfriend always makes fun of me for it.

    haha I love the foot part! I do that when I’m hot or just uncomfortable, but I’m short and can’t reach the end of the bed, so I just stick them out the side of the covers. lol!

    Hi, and thanks for delurking & the tag! Sorry it took me a few days to get over her – life’s bene busy. ;o)

    A few of these are familiar for me, too! I sleep with one foot out of the covers, but it has nothing to do with elves! And I’m a Buffy buff, too. :o)

    As you said, I did this meme recently but I will try to come up with some more facts about myself soon!
