I Been Tagged

Thanks to Jill. So, here are 7 random things about me:

I do not generally drink. When I do, it is almost always Malibu Rum & Diet Coke. I also can be persuaded to suck down one of those girly frozen drinks, or perhaps a Mojito. And Scotch is good, too. But only on occasion.

My grandmother gives me recipes from beyond the grave, in my sleep. So far I know how to make her stuffing and her cheese & bacon turnips, because I woke up from dreams of her with the recipes in my head. These are dishes I never ate at her table, but when I make them, my father is instantly transported back to his childhood in 1940s New York, because that was the last time he ate them. I find this oddly comforting.

I really stink at self-censorship. I pretty much say what I am thinking, and only realize it was horridly inappropriate because of the look of shocked disgust on my listener's face. So, um, feel free to stop me. You may have to make a few faces before I get the hint.

I love tulips and daffodils, gardenias and jasmine.

I really don't like oysters. Let them stay in the Bay, filter feeding. I don't even want to watch you eating them.

I have hot feet. Ask anyone. I nearly always wear sandals, even in winter. And not those clunky Birkenstocks, either: cute sandals. Because I also have hawt feet.

I am not much of a homebody. I come from a long line of women who, when the phone rings, will leave the dishes on the table and run to get in the car. I do eventually make it home and tackle the mess, but...I am not going to turn down a good time just because I have chores to do. That stuff is gonna be here whether I had a blast tonight or not.

(tonight I did not. I have a head cold, instead, like the entire family, and I can barely stand. but you KNOW that last night I made it out for blues jam)

In honor of that head cold, and the fact that my brain is not entirely functioning, I am not going to link to a bunch of you. I am just too beat. So, if you read this far, consider yourself tagged.

I am jealous of your hot feet. My feet are always freezing. Except maybe in the summer. So maybe they're not always freezing. But they are freezing right now.

That's what my ex-MIL used to say (well, she probably still says it, just not to me), "Go! The mess will still be there when you get back."

And why did it take me so long to see this?!?!? Ok my dad visited and I had extra stuff to do away from home this week but still...I'm a day late & a dollar short over here...
