down with black friday; let's meme a while

CamiKaos and JCK have given me the pass today. (I am out of NaBloPoMo steam...) Prepare to be meme-ified...

First the rules:

*Link to the person(s) who tagged you and post the rules on your blog...

*Share 7 random/weird things about yourself...

*Tag 7 people at the end of your post and include links to their sites...

*Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog...

Easy peasy; let's go.

1. I didn't learn to cook until I had Alexis at 27, and even then, it was questionable. (This used to freak my Grandma out; how could I keep a man without culinary skills?) Now I love to pour over cookbooks, try new things.

2. I still use the microwave from time to time, take shortcuts. I love the way macaroni noodles form in the bowl, standing up in a circle. (I'm keeping with the weird.)

3. One of my friends from Borders gave me an Olivia the Piglet window cling decal 5 years ago; it has been in my rear window ever since. Olivia always makes me smile.

4. I was a Sandy Mt. Festival princess, representing my age group on a court comprised of 5 generations, in 1989. If you ever make it to the festival in Sandy, Oregon - look my picture up. I'm the one with the permed long hair and light blue curtain dress. I know you will be tempted to mock me now. Please do it behind my back.

5. I still haven't read Harry.

6. I think listening to David Sedaris on CD cures many ills.

7. The only purchase I am considering on this black Friday: a Brian Setzer Christmas album. I can't decide if I want Boogie Woogie Christmas or Dig That Crazy Christmas.

Yay. I did it. Now it's your turn: if you are feeling meme-y, let me know and play along. I'll give you linky-love. (Did I just say linky-love? I need to step away from the computer...)

****
A-lister took me up.

Mmm...loooove Brian Setzer. And apparently I'm too beat to think of anything else to say. Five hours sleep is not enough for proper brain function.

Yes you said linky love and there's no takesies-backsies.

Love the new look around here (not sure how new it is, really, since I've been reading through Bloglines) :)

I want the linky love(I'm putting my version on A-Lister), just please don't call it that...Makes me feel a little itchy.

There is nothing weird about David Sedaris, Brian Setzer Christmas, or Olivia (or maybe I'm that weird, too) but not reading Harry?? Blasphemy.

:)

You did say linky love. but you didn't say linksy lurve, so you're ok :)

I'll say this: It may make Sedaris die a little on the inside to know a suburban elementary school teacher like moi thinks he's the greatest thing since sliced bread (probably would be a baguette if Hugh has anything to say about it), but I can't get enough. I have him downloaded on to my iPod and listen to him when I work in my classroom on vacations...look a tad looney laughing so much.

And the parrot story makes me cry every time. Every time.

I love Olivia too. And I think this Sandy princess business is worthy of a photo AND a post. You owe this to your readers.

CamiKaos said...

I LOVE OLIVIA. I am so glad I had K or I never would have found out about her!!!

JCK said...

I just read Olivia to my kids tonight. :) She does make you smile.

Sandy Mt. Festival princess, eh?? Sounds like the permed hair is worth a look-up.

From another permed girl of the 80's.
