Tag, I'm It!

My buddy, Jennifer, tagged me for a Meme -- 8 Random Things. If you have read any of my blog at any time, you will know that I specialize in randomness. I know I just did 7 things about me a while back, but this time, I will NOT be consulting The Cabana Boy so it is all me.

1. I was bald until about the age of 3. Then I was a toehead. Now I'm back to being a brunette (natural color) with blonde highlights (a little help with those) and have more hair than I can handle. (Seriously - it takes forever and a day to dry because there is SO MUCH of it. I am not intentionally whining, for those of you who are about to tell me to count my blessings because you have thin hair and hate it. I'm just saying - it's REALLY thick and some days, it stinks.)

2. I am the only person in my house who likes pickles.

3. My nickname when I was little was (hold onto your hats, friends -- it's gonna blow you away)... Motor Mouth.

4. I have never, ever been able to consistently sleep through the night.

5. My husband and I had our son named before we were married, let alone pregnant.

6. I have always really, really, really wanted to go to Italy.

7. I am uber clumsy. As in, my college roomie nicknamed me "Ouch" for awhile.

8. I can do this funky thing called the 5-toe-spread where all of my toes spread out like fingers. Speaking of things The Cabana Boy just can't get enough of. *snort*

Tagging people -- hmmmmm...if your name starts with the letters A-Z, you are reading this blog and need something to blog about...I tag YOU! You're it!

Too funny. Gosh, reading your 8 random facts post just gave me a glimpse of my daughter Madeline. She is such a motor mouth and clumsy and full of zest. It can be nerve wracking at times to say the least. However, I so enjoy you and think the world of you----which causes me to think of my Madeline. What spunk and personality she posses. I need to embrace that and not fight it.

Oh, and my oldest has thick hair and she HATES blow drying it when the weather gets cold. I never sympathize with her. Remember, I don't own a brush. Anyhow, maybe I can offer some compassion next time for her really thick hair-----NOT! :)

I have to tell you that I am jealous of your thick hair.
My husband has the same talent as you - he can spread his toes! It must be inherited becuase one of my daughters can too!

I love randomness. I love getting to know these little things about you. I love you!

Pickles? Love 'em. Motor mouth? Yet another thing we have in common. Not sure about the toe thing - might want to call Ripley's Believe It or Not on that one.
And, have you tried Ambien?
Back to pickles, have you ever tried taking a jar of dill slices and putting 1 1/2 to 2 cups of sugar in it to make sweet dills? They are addictive (not that I would know).
Oh and add me to the list of those who are jealous of your hair. My sister has thick hair and she is always talking about having to have it thinned out - at which time I say "shut up" - that is just wrong!
